Things That Make You Mutter a Bit

Nicosia, Cyprus : Alligators are definitely not native to this delightful island;however, the 12” baby alligator scrounging for food on a busy Nicosia sidewalk seemed unaware of that fact.

The head of the Veterinary Department came to the creature’s rescue by taking the critter home and putting it in a nice tub of water.

( All together now: “Aww-w-w-w-w-w-w !” )

Seriously , who brings an alligator to the Mediterranean on a date ?
Was it someone under demonic influence ?

Rome: There is an Exorcists’ convention ( I think the proper word is “conclave” ) in town, and they are quite interested in demon control.

Seriously !!

They are revising and reviewing the Rite of Exorcism , with an eye to modernizing it a bit ; and were even visited briefly by the Pope.

There is quite a bit of interest in exorcism in Italy at present , because members of a self-described Satanic cult were involved in a series of ritual murders that were bizarre enough to get on Italian TV.

Queens : First responders at the scene of an odd (even for NY) death might well have wondered what the devil had been going on.

The deceased, a 46 year-old man, employed for 22 years as a Senior Clerk in the Criminal Courts, was wearing a bra and panties , was tied up with pantyhose ,and had a “sex toy” clutched in his hand.

Neighbors said they had heard the man screaming, between 1 and 3 AM, but had ignored him , because he frequently engaged in loud outbursts at odd hours.

(Cause of death was eventually determined to be a heroin overdose.As to the other stuff ? Just keep telling yourself: “The Courts are in good hands. The Courts are in good hands. The Courts are ….” )
