Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Well, chilly weather doesn't stop the groundhog, either!

Naked man flashes I-65 traffic

BAY MINETTE, Ala. (AP) — Chilly weather hasn't kept a naked man from flashing traffic on Interstate 65 in north Baldwin County.

Well, you know, you gotta figure few things would keep someone from such an important task, right?

Sheriff's spokesman John Murphy said Thursday morning's incident was the ninth time since July 2004 that someone has flashed passing motorists on the interstate between the Stockton and Perdido exits.

"He runs up to the interstate, stands there for a few seconds, then runs away and vanishes," Murphy said.

State Trooper Sgt. Tommy Waters said motorists have described the flasher as a tall, thin, dark-haired man who is bald on top and has a ponytail.

Given the lack of any other identifying characteristics, one must assume the ponytail is the only thing requiring an equine comparison.

The sightings have been in rural areas. There have been no wrecks or injuries as a result of the man's antics.

Waters said the man could be charged with indecent exposure, a misdemeanor, if arrested.

He said officers, who rushed to the scene several times, have never spotted the naked man.

For some reason, policemen rushing to play "Spot the Naked Man" just strikes me as humorous.

Murphy said it is believed the man lives nearby and hides out after exposing himself or flees in a nearby vehicle.

What's going to be even funnier is when he gets an NEA grant for doing this.
