READER OF THE MONTH
Zombie Politician about to be elected.
October 20, 2018
Greetings fellow Bizarros:
Can a pimp become a lawmaker in the United States? We are talking about the country that elected Bill Clinton twice. The real question is; can a DEAD pimp become a lawmaker in the United States. In a bizarre political twist the answer just might be 'Yes'.
The bizarreness started a few months ago when infamous Nevada brothel owner Dennis Hof announced his candidacy for a seat in the state assembly. And much like Donald Trump's political ambition, it became much less absurd when Hof actually won the primary over a three-term Republican in a rural district in Southern Nevada.
Unfortunately for Hof, he died earlier this month, apparently passing away quietly in his sleep. But that hasn't stopped his political career.
Despite the slightly unorthodox fact that he is dead, Hof will remain on the ballot. Officials in the Silver State say it's too late to change the printed ballots since they've already been mailed out for early voting. And now he is expected to win by a landslide in the forthcoming Nevada state legislature elections.
The so-called "Trump from Pahrump," who appeared in the HBO documentary series Cathouse, owned a strip club and five legal brothels in Nevada including the Bunny Ranch.
As The Guardian reports, Hof was running for a seat in a heavily Republican district and had been favored to win...
"I feel very comfortable predicting that he is still going to win the election on 6 November," his campaign manager, Chuck Muth, said in an interview, adding that Republicans had a 2-to-1 advantage over Democrats in the state assembly district in terms of voter registration.
So what happens if he is elected? The vacancy, that spans constituencies in multiple counties, will be filled via a joint meeting process headed by county commissioners.
Muth explained, "[A lot of Republicans] will feel much more comfortable casting the ballot for [Hof] knowing there will be another Republican to replace him."
That's American politics for you.

That Takes A Lot of Balls
Multiple cars were damaged when a truck lost its load of about 22,000 metal grinding balls, which then rolled down a steep Seattle hill. Witnesses said the truck was going up the steep incline of SW Genessee Street about 4:30 p.m. when the back of the vehicle came open and the 2-pound metal grinding balls, which are used to grind down stones, fell out of the trailer and started rolling down the hill. Police said at least six cars were damaged by the balls, but no injuries were reported. The driver of the truck, which had been destined for Salt Lake City, said he made a wrong turn and ended up on the steep road. "All over the road. I know I saw them bouncing down. Nothing I can do right now 'til the police is finished with them," truck driver Robert Herman said. Herman was cited for failing to secure his load.
The Sky is Falling
A piece of space junk that crashed down on a California walnut orchard has been identified as a fuel tank from a satellite. The Kings County Sheriff's Office said the owner of the orchard found the large metal object Saturday morning and investigators reached out to Vandenberg Air Force Base in Santa Barbara County. The Air Force base did some research into the object and determined it was likely a fuel tank from a communications satellite owned by mobile satellite communications company Iridium. Deputies reached out to Iridium and a company representative determined the fuel tank was from Iridium Satellite #70, which was launched into space in late 1997 or early 1998. Iridium, which took custody of the fuel tank, said it was the first piece recovered from one of the company's satellites after reentering the atmosphere.
Lewis, you wrote... "If it wasn't before, I bet he was thor after he tried lifting that 1,000 lb sculpture." I got that on less than half a cup of coffee. I think I should be worried.
