Tonight’s question, greetings, and banter here. (More)

This week, a Romanian court held that a ‘dead’ man can get his driver’s license back, unlike another Romanian court’s ruling last week that a ‘dead’ man waited too long to challenge his death – cue Monty Python and the Search for the Holy Grail – and an Austrian man faces a €160 ($197) fine for a Facebook post that referred to police as “smurfs.” Also, “The Most Interesting Man in the World” – actor Jonathan Goldsmith – helped judge the Best Beardies competition in Vermont and the New Hampshire lottery replaced their “Luck Yeah!” campaign over public concerns about profanity. (My replacement suggestion: “Get a lucking life.”) Oh, a Florida man was reunited with T2, the cat he thought had been killed 14 years ago, and a Pennsylvania sheriff put out a wanted poster for Punxsutawney Phil because spring hasn’t sprung yet. And Gulfport, Mississippi denied a permit for a church sponsored by a man who calls himself Father Jesus, because the Son of the Almighty doesn’t know the building codes. Should not-dead-yet lucking Romanians who insult Austrian lucking police have the most interesting lucking beards on lucking weather-predicting cats in lucking code-compliant churches?
