Thanks Ann for the lead on this one.
Yikes. That would be a scary morning for police in Royse City, Texas, who stopped a giant trailer for speeding. The guy was acting kind of suspiciously, so they looked in the back of the trailer, only to find 2 dozen embalmed human heads staring back at them. It turns out the guy was transporting them so they could be used for science, but until police had that paperwork in their hands, things were a little tense.
Am I the only one who finds it hilariously ironic that the judge presiding over the case’s name is Williams, and he also said the heads were being mistreated? I wonder if he’s any relation to Ted Williams?
Now, here’s a chance to make fun of myself. The other day, we were listening to the ballgame, and the out of town score board came up, and Ted Lilly was mentioned. I looked at Steve in shock and said “Ted Lilly? Isn’t he dead?” Steve said “No…although when he was pitching for the Jays I wished he was dead sometimes.” Because apparently I was in dumbass mode, I could not figure out who I was thinking about, and looked at Steve and said, “Then who’s the one with the can of peas on his head?” I think it was a tuna can now that I think about it, but Steve knew what I was talking about, started laughing and said, “That’s Ted Williams, Carin,” at which point I realized exactly how stupid I just sounded and started laughing too. At least now I know for sure that I had the right sport. I knew damn well his name was Ted.
