Overnight Open Thread

Itís Maetless Tuesday.

He had to take the night off so it looks like youíre stuck with me. Please try to keep the cheering to a reasonable level. By which I mean it'd be reasonable if there was some actual cheering rather than the sound of crickets chirping. Hello? Anyone here?

Love hurts. And sometimes it's fatal:

First we had astronaut in diapers and now we get doctor in chimney. This time obsession didn't have such a humorous ending:

"BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP) - A doctor involved in an "on-again, off-again" relationship apparently tried to force her way into her boyfriend's home by sliding down the chimney, police said Tuesday. Her decomposing body was found there three days later."

"Dr. Jacquelyn Kotarac, 49, first tried to get into the house with a shovel, then climbed a ladder to the roof last Wednesday night, removed the chimney cap and slid feet first down the flue, Bakersfield police Sgt. Mary DeGeare said."

"While she was trying to break in, the man she was pursuing escaped unnoticed from another exit "to avoid a confrontation," authorities said."

Sad, yet weird on many levels. The article comes with a photo of the scene. About four feet away from the chimney she tried to climb down is a flimsy looking door with a large glass pane and on the other side is a rather large window. Neither of those paths of entry would've worked for the good doctor? Seems like she was working her way down the list of ways to break in, but in reverse: hardest to easiest. I'm guessing she had to abandon the shovel approach because she was trying to dig her way in under the foundation.

Origins of "The Bunk:"

As AoSHQ continues to grow in readership, in its attempt to conquer the known universe, new and confused readers make the mistake of being assimilated here and are transformed into morons (and if you hang around the ONT, you aren't even worthy of that designation: you become "sub-moron." And there is no hope for you.)

Often, however, some ask about long-standing inside jokes while they still can, knowing that their last few remaining active brain cells are quicky passing into darkness and oblivion. I've been pestering Ace for awhile to post some kinda' FAQ 'splaining some of these things but he's too bizzy hanging out on his new motor yacht/face down in a gutter somewhere. It's like he thinks he owns the place or something.

So here's about all I could find on YouTube concerning "bunk." I hope it helps.

If you can find a better version, post it in the comments and I'll replace it. If not, maybe some of you old-timers can monkey-type explanations of other AoS traditions/outrages for some of the newcomers/lurkers so they can feel right at home. And so they can feel despair.

There are no kittehs below the fold tonight. At least none in the domestic pet sense.

Since the U.S. Open is underway, what say we let Anna Kournikova sponsor tonightís ONT, even if she isnít playing in the tourney? As the Wiki article notes, it appears her career may be over due to back injuries, and we are all poorer for that fact. Well, the male sub-morons here are. Itís just one less reason for us to visit our bunks. But here she is in happier and hotter times. Thanks for the mammaries memories Anna! (Though your semi-retirement nearly bankrupted the tissue industry).

Yeah, I know...there are a lot more cheese-cakey-like pics out there on the intertubes but if I post any of those I'll lose my cherished reserved parking spot at AceCorp. You wouldn't want that, would you?
