Truth is Stranger than Fiction

Phillip Capshaw provides his own unique perspective on everything from local to world events and, as the blog title suggests, believes that nothing is funnier than observing the comical nature of our fellow man and especially Southern Oklahomans. Phillip is a native of Ardmore, Oklahoma, with varied interests who likes to poke fun at almost any group and occupation, but feels as if there is much to make fun of in passing the mirror everyday.

I read recently about a man in Madison, Wisconsin who was stopped by authorities after cruising by the John F. Kennedy Elementary School on his scooter dressed only in a cape and a thong.  He admitted he may have used poor judgment, but claimed it was unintentional. Police call him Thong Cape Scooter Man. Wow! How original is that? The city attorney says he didn’t break any laws. I should think not. It is the right of every American Citizen to have certain inalienable rights. Among these are life, liberty and the desire to be a super hero inspiration to some elementary children. Not all of us are college or technical school material. We all have our gifts.

 

Speaking of odd things, it seems a little peculiar to me that people feel like they have to preface what they are about  to say to you, “Well I’m no (fill in the blank)  but….”  For example, you are waiting in line to get your coffee talking about this pain you are having and the well meaning person behind the counter that has overheard you talking to your  friend says, “Well, I’m no doctor but…” There is that part of me that just wants to blurt out “Seriously? You aren’t a doctor? Because I figured you just did this on the side to get away from all that boring medical stuff.” It may be even worse when the friend that you have known for forty plus years says something similar like “Well, I’m no electrician, but…”.  I know I am not the only one out there that has experienced this. That Devil on your shoulder prompts you to say something like, “No kidding? I thought that time you said you were taking a vacation you really took your state boards.”

 Oh well, my wife is telling me it is time for bed so I will leave you with this: I’m no writer but……
