Random Dakar Weirdness
Wednesday, November 05, 2003
Today's Best of the Web links to the results of a measure passed by the residents of Bolinas, CA, described by BOTW as "some sort of hippie enclave". The text of the resolution is:
Although this measure is very strange, the strangest word here is the randomly placed word, "Dakar". As you may know, Dakar is the capital of Senegal, a country in Africa, nowhere near Bolinas, CA. It appears to be randomly placed there.
While looking up Dakar on Google, I found the page of the US embassy. There, right on the front page, was a picture of Ambassador Richard Roth presenting a check for the equivalent of $29,516 to Senegal's minister of education, funding the preservation of a collection of West African art. The thing is, it's a giant novelty check.
I want my tax refund in the form of a giant novelty check, now that the US government is in the business of handing them out.
