Mayor upset over April Fool's Joke


Recommended Posts

A Jordanian mayor is considering suing a newspaper over an April Fools' Day report saying aliens had landed nearby.

Al-Ghad's front-page story on 1 April said flying saucers flown by 3m (10ft) creatures had landed in the desert town of Jafr, in eastern Jordan.

It said communication networks went down and frightened townspeople fled into the streets.

The mayor, Mohammed Mleihan, said parents were so frightened they did not send their children to school that day.

"Students didn't go to school, their parents were frightened and I almost evacuated the town's 13,000 residents," Mr Mleihan told the Associated Press.

"People were scared that aliens would attack them."

He immediately notified the security authorities, who he said combed the area looking for the aliens. They did not find any.

I think Nevermore said it best with their song "Poison GodMachine"

"The media machine knows what to do

It knows how to feed the poison to you

Useless information for your useless little lives

The tv lies and pacifies

Do you believe everything you see?

In subtlety we obey through ink and broadcast wave

The doubts and fears that shadow media decay

Deprogram this affliction and the cathode ray unclean

I am the last nail, the empty soulless screen.

And we eat the poison, we created the poison godmachine"

Yes, sometimes public officials can be worrisome.

That story brought to mind Rep. Hank Johnson who made news recently when he expressed his concern Guam would "tip over." NO, REALLY!!

"First, before you watch this short but remarkable video, a little background on Democratic Rep. Hank Johnson.

He's from Georgia's Fourth District. A Washington, D.C. native, he's the fellow who took office in 2007 after knocking off former five-term Democratic Rep. Cynthia McKinney.

A former county judge, the 55-year-old is an attorney, a standard liberal Democrat, receiving 100 ratings from the ADA and ACLU."

There is no means of avoiding the final collapse of a boom brought about by credit expansion. The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as the result of a voluntary abandonment of further credit expansion, or later as a final and total catastrophe of the currency system involved. - Ludwig von Mises

Oh...my...god....I don't know how that guy made it through Kindergarten! His favorite words seem to be "uhhhh" and "ummmm"

And how exactly does an island capsize?

Scary. Very scary.

The voters of the GA Fourth district have spoken. Which tells you something about why I live in the Third district.

From time to time I float the idea of an IQ test for voter registration. But I know it will never fly.

Recall, Georgia's Fourth District voters previously entrusted that congressional seat to Cynthia McKinney for ten tumultuous years. That district is crying out for an IQ test.
