The Onion swung and missed in their last knife-related piece, but this one made me chuckle. The best satire is rooted in reality, and this one is much closer to the mark. Both the private sector and Uncle Sugar have plenty of cash for scientific research, and while I haven’t heard of anything quite as ridiculous as stabbing monkeys, there is an annual award called the “Ig Nobel” which is handed out to the most ridiculous research of the past year.
I am taking a class with John “Shrek” McPhee (aka The Sheriff of Baghdad), who will be visiting Knoxville this week. If things shake out right, I will even be taking him flyfishing in the Smokies. I had a new red-dot I needed to dial in, and so I went to the range this morning. It was a beautiful morning, but now I need to pay the piper and clean my rifle.
Have a great Sunday folks.
