Wacky Stuff


While waiting for Pinata to come back to work from a long illness that may or may not be real; I’d like to keep your spirits up by letting you know that even though I don’t live in the big city, my little area of the world still has a few pathetic occurrences that happen at random.   

And you’ll also be happy to know that I’ve been able to capture some of these pathetic events on camera.  

Would you like to see some of them? 

Of course you would!!

Let’s begin with this UPS truck driver trying to squeeze between a parked car and a Home-moving truck.   Believe it or not, he made it through by folding in the side mirror on the parked car.

This lady rode her bike past me on the road and if you notice, she has a bike helmet on over her sun hat.  When she rode past me, she looked at me like I was the oddball.  

At least she was safety minded.

Woman with two hats in DT lincoln_1


This was a co-anchor at one of our local stations.  She’s pretty, isn’t she?  

I had to take this picture because the dress she was wearing was…


I’ll let you draw your own conclusions. 



This is a road sign that was hung at an intersection during the holidays.  Clever?  yes! 

And it also helped to impede traffic as more and more of us were stopping to take a picture of it.

I can’t take credit for this next picture.  My sister actually took this one in Grand Forks, North Dakota.  These are holiday lights hung on the light poles.

do you see anything odd or strange about them? 



I took this picture a couple years ago as I was approaching an intersection.

At least she was obeying the law.

And Finally…

Does anyone else think the Nutri-bullet spokesman guy resembles Sideshow Bob from the Simpsons? 

yes?  –  no?


Pathetic is everywhere, you just have to know where to look for it!

  1. It wasn’t his fault he had to squeeze in between two parked vehicles. You have only enough time to ask someone to move, and you have to move, or get fired. And the “candle”/balls lights—that’s got to be deliberately designed that way. Hilarious photos! 🙂

    • thanks! I thought of you today as I passed by an elderly man jogging on a trail. He was headed in the opposite direction and was at a distance from the roadway, but I caught a glimpse of his attire…

      Multicolored headband, wife beater t-shirt and faded bluejeans.

      I kept telling myself to go back and take a picture, but traffic was horrible and I couldn’t make the u-turn. (sorry).

  2. I can understand the hats under the helmets. If the helmets came with sun visors you probably could do without the ball caps or sun hats. Personally, I have a hard time with sun in my eyes and I often wear a visored cap even with my sunglasses. My favorite here was the holiday lights in North Dakota! Thanks for the grins!

  3. A few years back there was this ridiculous craze here for wearing baseball caps under bike helmets.

    It spread like the plague. Within a fortnight, even the pensioners were doing it.

    Having said that the poor old buggers probably thought it was a new legal requirement…. 🙂
