Friday Bits of Tid, British Open Edition

The Grand Dame of Golfing hosts the British Open this week. Yesterday saw a local boy do good, one Rory McIlroy who posted a record-tying score of 63. Tiger shot 5 under and Phil Mickelson was 1 over par. The morning scores were considerably lower than the afternoon scores, thanks to the inclement weather later in the day. If anyone needs me over the weekend, I'll be in front of the telly, furiously saving beers from an icy death...

As Glenn Reynolds would say, more of this, please. New Zealand researchers have developed bionic legs for paraplegics to replace wheelchairs.

This is guaranteed to leave a mark, even from beyond the grave. Longtime Nevada resident requests, "Please, in lieu of flowers, vote for another more worthy candidate” instead of Harry Reid.

Bellybuttons are the key to elite athletes' success. Nike, Adidas, and Reebok hardest hit.

Here's the newest sign at a local amusement park. "You must be this drunk to go on the Wild Crocodile Ride."

 No. it's not a bacon cheeseburger, it's a bacon burger. Made out of bacon.

Be the first on your block to own an Alvin Greene Senate Action Figure! Batteries not included.

And speaking of senators, look for this guy's name on a Congressional ballot this November. Arrested for shoplifting, a NJ man pays his bail in counterfeit money.

Our First Amendment guarantees the right to free speech. So, why didn't the Founders include whistling?

And finally after correctly predicting every World Cup match (he was 7-0), Spain wants Paul, the clairvoyant octopus, to take up permanent residence there.

To all my readers, enjoy the weekend.

Both of you.
