I'm surprised the owl was there when the responding officer arrived given this prior incident.

Lots of amusement in the episode of The New Detectives (a B-grade version of Forensic Files) that I'm watching now. A 20-something dude from Aberdeen, South Dakota gets kidnapped. When they arrest a suspect, the suspect claims he was put up to it by a drug dealer named Bob Jacobs. It's later revealed that the kidnap victim actually staged the whole thing so he could use the ransom money to fulfill his dream of moving to Canada.

Yup. Maybe Night Riots as well.

Maybe this is a "you had to be there", but... My wife got a phone call at work the other day. (She owns her own tailoring business, for background. She is the only full-time employee.) She picks up, and the caller says something hard to understand, then a different voice comes on, a young woman. She has a thick foreign accent, which you'll have to imagine. She says, "I call for my father, his English not so good. We find you on internet. You hire killer?"

My wife is taken aback, to put it mildly. "Uh..."

"My father, he is killer. You hire killer?"

Several possibilities occur. Either this is a prank call, or a terrifying wrong number. After a few more seconds, it occurs to my wife that the woman is actually saying tailor, but her accent is so thick it sounds like killer, or she legitimately has the words confused. Unfortunately we have to tell the woman that no, we are not hiring.

But now I find it amusing to call up my wife and say, "You hire killer?"

from an Ian Anderson interview:
Q: You are a big fan of the late Frank Zappa. Did you know him?

A: I never met Frank and, sadly, never got the chance to, because he was in bad shape for the last weeks of his life. I got a message, shortly before he died, saying: “Frank would like you to call him.” I was staggered, because I thought Frank hated Tull from some comments he made in the 1970s – which, frankly, hurt me a lot, because I was a big fan of his, so to hear he wanted me to call him, knowing he was a dying man, I wasn’t sure what he wanted to say to me. I dialed the number three times over a period of a week and hung up each time, because I couldn’t face up to having to cope with someone in that position and not knowing what he was going to say. Maybe he was going to say: “I really loved your music and I’m sorry we didn’t get a chance to meet.” Or maybe he would have said: “I wanted to let you know, before I died, how much I still hate Tull’s music.
Not that he would have, but imagining Frank actually spending a few moments of what precious little life he had left to make a point of that cracks me up. "Nurse! Get me a phone, I can't let there be a chance I would die without him knowing I still think he sucks!"

I think it more likely he wanted to book Tull for the funeral because he still thought they sucked.
