Sex Attacks Blamed On Demon Bat

Funny, when I claim that, the judge calls it "specious" and "just plain wacky," but when some brown people in Tanzania claim it, the BBC calls it "news."

Men in parts of Tanzania's main city, Dar es Salaam, are living in fear of a night-time sex attacker.

A BBC correspondent says the attacks are being blamed by some on a demon called "Popo Bawa" meaning winged bat.

Some men are staying awake or sleeping in groups outside their homes. Others are smearing themselves with pig's oil, believing this repels attacks.

My sophomore year in college all the other boys started calling my ass "The Crisper," because "that's where you put all da cucumbers."

I'm pretty damn sure bats were responsible for that.

Thanks to dri.

Speaking of kookiness...

Don't everyone click over on that site from here, because it will alert the crazy cat lady, but a few updates:

1) She got slapped with a cool million dollar proposed judgment against her. While it's only a proposed judgment, it will probably wind up being pretty damn high, because she just basically blows off court appearances and defaults on everything and enjoys provoking judges, so there's never a counterargument about damages nor a judge eager to help her out. Not that it matters -- she's pretty much judgment proof at this point, and for the rest of her life, and everyone knows that.*

2) The aggreived party has offered to set this judgment aside if she just agrees to stop talking about him and his family.

3) Her counteroffer, apparently, is that she herself should get a big check out of this, because, in her twisted version of how the world works, when you make a creepy threat against someone's child, well, someone owes you bigtime cash for that service.

4) She laughably puts up a pic of her sitemeter traffic for the whole year, under the title "estimation of damages." Here's what it shows: No traffic for a half year, suddenly 150,000 hits in the month she became notorious for being crazy, then around 80,000 hits, then droopping, of course, back down to no traffic. She seems to believe that this means she suffered "damages," because her blog was taking off and could have established her as a new media star or something. She fails to grasp no one was reading her before, and no one is reading her now, and people only read her for a couple of months because of her bad behavior and bus-collision lunacy.

It's pathetic. She really thought she would be welcomed on Stephen Colbert for the accomplishment of threatening someone's child on the internet. In her fantasies, she's still going to get rich and famous from her insane behavior.

The person she was stalking, of course, declined various invitations to appear in the media, preferring to make his name for, you know, actual accomplishments, not creepy run-ins with a stalker. But for her -- the stalking is her ticket to immortality, baby.

Such is the case with obsessed stalkers.

5) Lastly, she showed off her leet boxxen skillz by successfully identifying "Sinner," posting about her over at Teh Squeaky Wheel. This internet detective successfully determined that Sinner worked at The Zurich Company, and by harrassing his employers, got them to shut his site down, and perhaps even fire him.

That site is now shut down, alas, but you can try, if you like, reading about the whole sordid affair here. Previous posts detail the sad shut down of the site, all due to the Holmes-like sleuthing of the demented doc.

Now, the demented doc reads this site, so I'm avoiding using her name, or giving her her own post. Please avoid saying anything that might alert her to any of this.

* Correction: I wrote it was a judgment. It isn't. It's a proposed judgment. Thanks to Allah for straightening me out.
