Yes, Words Can Hurt is now known as Strange Week, as a result of our new Saturday format. Just deal with it.

And with that important announcement out of the way, the key lines from this past week:

I’ve been to parad-Iceland, but… “Before reentering the bus after the stop at Eldgjá, the woman had changed her clothes and freshened up, resulting in the other passengers not recognizing her… She didn’t recognize the description of herself and ‘had no idea that she was missing,” – a police chief in Iceland, explaining how a woman managed to take part in a search and rescue operation that was looking for her.

This is what happens when people don’t listen to enough of the Velvet Underground:I tried to make a hole in the cardboard but it was too thick and I didn’t want to spoil the surprise by shouting.” – Hu Seng, who tried sending himself to his girlfriend in a cardboard box but nearly suffocated when the couriers got lost en route. Still, he did better than Waldo Jeffers did.  [Daily Mail]

Yes, it may have been: Alcohol may have been a factor.” – Montana State Trooper Jim Schneider, on why a man stood by the side of a highway in a Sasquatch costume hoping to trick people into reporting Sasquatch sightings. Sadly, the man was hit not once but twice by passing cars and died.  [Geekologie]
