Greetings fellow Bizarros:
It is no surprise to anyone who reads the news that the 'right' in this country is coming under increasing attack by radical political and social elements. So far it has mostly been social media pressure, demonstrations and protests, but recently a secret group of activists in Virginia has begun a campaign to eliminate the right in a series of criminal attacks.
The Roanoke Times has reported that the Clean Soles shoe store has been robbed of only right shoes over the course of two break-ins this summer.
Clean Soles operator Rob Wickham says his two-year-old sneaker store was raided by two people in July, and again in August. Together, he lost shirts, hoodies, a jacket, and 13 right shoes.
Wickham says he typically keeps right shoes on display, while their other halves rest behind the counter. Accordingly, Wickham says the looters were "pretty much risking their freedom for nothing."
But have they? Is this a secret message being sent to convervative America?

*------- Burglar Caught In a Tight Spot -------*
Los Angeles police said a burglary suspect was arrested after needing to be rescued from his position between a wall and a building. The Los Angeles Police Department said a homeowner checking their security camera footage about 11:30 p.m. saw a person wandering the property. The homeowner decided to check the property the next morning to see if anything had been disturbed and they found the man was wedged between a wall and the home's garage. The Los Angeles Fire Department responded about 8:10 a.m. and it took more than an hour to free the man, who had sustained minor injuries from his ordeal. It was unclear how long he had been wedged. LAPD Officer Rosario Herrera said the man was arrested on suspicion of trespassing and police suspect he may have been involved in a nearby burglary earlier Wednesday evening.
*----------------- Bongzilla ------------------*
A soon-to-open marijuana museum in Las Vegas offered a sneak preview of its exhibits -- including a 24-foot-tall bong said to be the world's largest. The Cannabition Cannabis Museum, set to open in September on downtown Las Vegas' famed Fremont Street, held a sneak preview event that included the unveiling of its star attraction, a 25-foot-tall, 800-pound bong dubbed "Bongzilla." J.J. Walker [Kid Dy-no-mite!], founder of Cannabition, said Bongzilla, created by artist Jason Harris, might eventually be used for actual marijuana smoking if Nevada's recreational marijuana laws are amended to allow for smoking in public social settings. "It's actually glow-in-the-dark glass, and it's actually a hittable bong," Walker said. Harris said he felt Cannabition was the right home for his creation. "Las Vegas will be the new Amsterdam of the world," he told the Los Angeles Times. "I see it as a big lighthouse and beacon that says, 'Just smoke me.'"

Lewis, is it any surprise that city workers are f___ing around around at the city's expense? Literally. It would be more bizarre if they were actually doing their jobs.
I always knew guys who were into playing chess were all wet. Heh heh.
What could that thief possibly be doing with 800 pounds of lemons? Setting up a lemonade stand is too obvious of a venture to set up when you snatch a ridiculous quantity of lemons. Well, at least it won't sour grapes. --Dirk
