Carrot Top and Pippi Longstocking’s love child makes news.Posted: June 12, 2009
In the news today is the story of a 14 year old in Germany who claims he was grazed by a meteorite which would have been traveling at 30,000 mph when it hit him.
Does this seem impossible to anyone else?
Here is a photo of the kids scarred hand and the meteorite that hit him. It just seems to me that if something is moving at 30,000 mph and hits you even slightly, there would be much more than a minor scar. This, however, went on to create a sonic boom and embed itself in the road he was walking on.
I’m just going to have to call this BS.
In fact, it kind of bothered me that this kid would try to run this crap past me and expect me to believe it. Look at his smug little smile. He thinks hes getting one past you and I.
Well I won’t stand for it. I decided to get in touch with his parents.
His mother answered the phone at her home, Villa Villekulla. As you might expect, she denied any responsibility for
her son’s antics. She remained defiantly committed to her son’s story and would not believe any argument to the contrary. She also blamed her son’s teachers and her estranged husband, just in case he was lying.
For the record, people like this piss me off when they blame their kid’s teachers. I raised my son not to lie about getting hit with meteorites, and I’ve gotten nothing but support from his teachers in doing so.
I was going to call Carrot Top to let him know, but I just decided I really didn’t want to. I just knew the conversation would degrade into some goofy prop thing.
Pippi, I am sorry that I find your son completely full of it.
Kid, I know puberty is a strange time, especially living with your mom and her monkey. Making up wild tales to get attention isn’t the best way to feel better about yourself. Maybe you could get in touch with your school counselor, or perhaps someone who could help you make up a story that really could have happened.
