YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK -- Since true tragedies do occur here -- the 9-year-old boy who blundered into a thermal vent and was scalded to death, the park ranger whose arms were torn off by a bear -- I shouldn't complain about our particular disaster.....

The question is, will bill-e-g rise to this fly?

Curiosity got me.

"Frankly, the bite was a relief to us all -- we couldn't even consider camping out, not with his eye like that.

Frankly I have no idea what the point of the article was other than to point out that the guy is an idiot.

(and why isn't Vince bitching about this not being news?)
