Less Curious than Furious...

Honest to goodness, sometimes the Thursday News of the Absurd choices just write themselves.

From YahooNews and the AP:

Fire in Houston blamed on inflatable gorilla

"Fire department officials said an out-of-control inflatable gorilla was blamed for a rooftop blaze at a Houston shopping center."

I think the only question is this: what made him so mad???

I have visions of a giant inflatable gorilla standing on top of a building, thumping his fists on his chest. If he hadn't caused the rooftop blaze, all he'd need is a giant inflatable airplane shooting balloons at him. Too weird.

Susanne, exactly what I was picturing.
