Sunday marks the first Scott Chicken show of Daylight Saving time 2010!

Not that it's anything momentous...although thanks to the time change I'm getting an hour less sleep than usual. In any case, I'm going to talk about this crap on the radio (Radio KYA and Super listen on line open these URLs in your favorite audio player thingy: KYA, Super CFL this morning:

Back in 1993, 2 days before I married Mrs. Chicken, we went to dinner with the wedding party at the Red Robbin on Seattle's waterfront. I parked under the always lovely Alaska Way Viaduct. And some jackass broke in to my car (an easily-broken-into 1970 VW Microbus) and stole several wedding presents and my tux. So I can feel her pain, even though the cops never found the tux or presents.
Delaware state police said someone broke into a car and stole a bridesmaid's dress just hours before a wedding on Friday at a shopping center in Pike Creek.

OK, losing a dress or a tux is bad. But what about a dead body?
A police tow truck removed a minivan parked outside a New York City funeral home, giving its dearly departed passenger an unexpected side trip. NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said there was "nothing to indicate it was more than just an illegally parked car." Redden's Funeral Home director Paul DeNigris said a windshield placard had fallen flat. The van's tinted windows helped obscure the white cardboard box that held the remains.

Further proof that people of all ages enjoy getting stoned, even in the back of police cars.
Police said they observed Switzer (age 77) making an illegal left turn on Jan. 31 and arrested him for driving with a revoked license. They say that while Switzer was in the back of the squad car, he reached into a coat pocket, pulled out a plastic tube containing marijuana and swallowed most of the contents. They said he also dropped the tube and a glass marijuana pipe on the floor of the car.

I suppose we should be grateful that the guys making these bills aren't very good at it...
The counterfeit money was made by bleaching $5 bills and printing $100 on the bleached paper. A weak image of Abraham Lincoln can been seen on a fake $100 that covered only half the sheet. A $100 bill had Ben Franklin on both sides.
