My co-worker shared the funniest story of the week (of all-time?) with me today. You’ll understand the gif above after you’ve read it.
It comes from the Omaha World Herald and is by the now legendary staff writer, Kevin Cole: “Omaha dad finds pot brownies, eats 4 of them, says mean things to cat.” Please go read it now (it’s short and sassy) and then come back and we can discuss our favorite parts.
Here are my top 3 funniest moments from the story:
- Omaha police officers were called to a house near 90th and Maple Streets about 9:45 p.m. Tuesday to investigate an accidental overdose….The man’s wife told police that as she and her husband were watching TV, he noted that he was getting “bad anxiety.”
- The man told paramedics he felt like “he’s trippin’.”
- Paramedics called to the scene who checked the man found his vital signs to be normal. But they noted he was displaying odd behavior — crawling around on the floor, randomly using profanities and calling the family cat a “bitch.” (emphasis my own)
Did you love this article as much as I did? It reminded me of my school’s security blotter in our school newspaper that would have hard hitting news like: “Fire alerted in a dorm. Turned out to be burnt toast.” or “Small fire caused by a dirty oven. Extinguished with a fire extinguisher.” or “Two young kids caught jumping their skateboards off a loading dock for a second time and asked to stay off college property.”
Not as laugh out loud funny as the Omaha World Herald, but humorous nonetheless. I want more news stories like this in my daily life — it’s the perfect antidote to the nonstop negative election coverage these days!
