Howdy. We've moved from Cayce, but St. Elizabeth of South Rose Hill or Lizette de Waccamaw de Sud just don't do it for me.

It's not quite S.O.A.P.

(Snakes on a plane, for those not in on this bit of culture)
...but it's a heck of a lot better than the rest of today's news.  Is this WW3 or WW4?
A power outage that blacked out about 2,000 customers in Las Cruces is being blamed on the combination of a snake and a bird.
The customers lost their electricity Tuesday after a bird dropped a bull snake on a power line, shorting out the line, El Paso Electric Co. spokeswoman Teresa Souza said.
"I know that's weird. ... I've never heard anything like that and I've been working here for 10 years," Souza said.
She said she did not know how large the snake was, and she would not speculate on what type of bird dropped it.
Power was restored in less than an hour.
Maybe we can get the birds to start dropping snakes on other targets...
