Two More Food Attacks in Florida

More food related attacks in the Sunshine State. On January 16, 2009, 19-year-old Zachary Moir from Deltona, Fla. hit his mom with a taco.

According to a story in the Orlando Sentinel, Zachary's mom, Dena, told police she had called her son "several times," before finally going to his room and unplugging his Xbox. He pushed her, called her names, and told her to get out of his room.

Dena said her old-enough-to-move-out son finally came down to eat, and that she pushed him aside, because she was cleaning the kitchen and he was in the way. So Zach, feeling the love, smacked her on the arm, called her a name, and threw his taco in her face.

Zachary is being held without bail, charged with domestic violence battery.

Normally, there is usually only one Florida food-related attack every few weeks, but as luck would have it, there was another one two days later, on January 18.

In St. Petersburg, Cassady Catolico was arrested for hitting Steven Bunaisky in the head with a bagel. She whacked Bunaisky at 2:18 a.m. while violating a temporary injuction he filed against her the previous week.

The St. Petersburg Times blog wasn't clear on any further details, other than to say Catolico was already on probation for a criminal mischief case in 2006.

No other state in the country has suffered the food attack epidemic that Florida has. There have been five attacks in the last four months, all within less than 200 miles of each other.

AYFKMWTS?! FBI Creates 88 Page Twitter Slang Guide


Did you get that? It's an acronym. Web slang. It's how all the teens and young people are texting with their tweeters and Facer-books on their cellular doodads.

It stands for "The FBI has created an eighty-eight page Twitter slang dictionary."

See, you would have known that if you had the FBI's 88 page Twitter slang dictionary.

Eighty-eight pages! Of slang! AYFKMWTS?! (Are you f***ing kidding me with this s***?! That's actually how they spell it in the guide, asterisks and everything. You know, in case the gun-toting agents who catch mobsters and international terrorists get offended by salty language.)

I didn't even know there were 88 Twitter acronyms, let alone enough acronyms to fill 88 pieces of paper.

The FBI needs to be good at Twitter because they're reading everyone's tweets to see if anyone is planning any illegal activities. Because that's what terrorists do — plan their terroristic activities publicly, as if they were…

Understanding 7 Different Types of Humor

One of my pet peeves is when people say they have a "dry" sense of humor, without actually understanding what it actually means.

"Dry" humor is not just any old type of humor. It's not violent, not off-color, not macabre or dark.

Basically, dry humor is that deadpan style of humor. It's the not-very-funny joke your uncle the cost analysis accountant tells. It's Bob Newhart, Steven Wright, or Jason Bateman in Arrested Development.

It is not, for the love of GOD, people, the Black Knight scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I swear, if anyone says Monty Python is "dry humor" is going to get a smack.

Here are some other types of comedy you may have heard and are just tossing around, willy-nilly.

Farce: Exaggerated comedy. Characters in a farce get themselves in an unlikely or improbable situation that takes a lot of footwork and fast talking to get out of. The play "The Foreigner" is an example of a farce, as are many of the Jeeves &…

What Are They Thinking? The Beloit College Mindset List

Every year at this time, the staff at Beloit College send out their new student Mindset List as a way to make everyone clutch their chest and feel the cold hand of death.

This list was originally created and shared with their faculty each year, so the faculty would understand what some of their own cultural touchstones might mean, or not mean, to the incoming freshmen. They also wanted the freshmen to know it was not cool to refer to '80s music as "Oldies."

This year's incoming Beloit freshmen are typically 18 years old, born in 1999. John F. Kennedy Jr. died that year, as did Stanley Kubrick and Gene Siskel. And so did my hope for a society that sought artistic and intellectual pursuits for the betterment of all humanity. Although it may have actually died when I heard about this year's Emoji Movie.

Before I throw my hands up in despair, here are a few items from the Mindset list for the class of 2021.

They're the last class to be born in the 1900s, and are t…
