Thong Cape Scooter Man Is Free To Ride


Riding around town on a scooter wearing thong underwear and a cape may be a bit odd but it is not illegal, say police. This mysterious man, simply known as Thong Cape Scooter Man, came to attention of authorities in Madison, Wisconsin, last week. Shocked staff at John F. Kennedy Elementary School in the Wisconsin capital called police after he rode past their school. Officers went to speak to the 56-year-old man at his home but decided he had not broken any laws and was just passing through the area while students were walking to a bus.” w/ photos + video

Top 10 Life Lessons That ‘Tetris’ Can Teach You

So join me, won’t you, on what will no doubt be an entertaining exercise in a barely rationalized waste of time.” w/ photos
