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

This week Australians swamped their parliament with requests for portraits of Queen Elizabeth after Vice Australia published an article on an obscure 1990 law authorizing legislators to give away taxpayer-funded “nationhood material” under a “constituents’ request program.” Also, Meredith, New Hampshire unveiled a statue honoring Archie comic illustrator Bob Montana and Montpelier, Vermont is using goats to trim poison ivy, while Colorado Mesa University will reprint 9200 diplomas – back to 2012 – to correct a typo. Oh, New York state wildlife officers seized a homeowner’s reptile collection, including 3 king cobras and 6 venomous Gila monsters. And a mysterious package drifted to the ground in a New Jersey solar panel field, with this note attached:

NASA Atmospheric Research Instrument NOT A BOMB! If found, please call [redacted]. If this lands near the President, we at NASA wish him a great round of golf.

Isn’t “NOT A BOMB!” exactly what Wile E. Coyote would write … on a bomb?
