I have a shameful confession to make: Occasionally I have a difficult
time differentiating between various Hulk Hogan films. Most often, this
issue manifests itself with regards to Mr. Nanny and Suburban Commando.
I do recognize the difference in plot between the two "former pro
wrestler is hired as a bodyguard for small children & a
from space fights crime(?)" and yet to me, these features are still one
and the same. Part of my confusion may stem from the fact that I have
not seen either film, but I can't help but wonder if there isn't
something more sinister afoot here.
But there's really no time for me to think about it right now. I
have to post this dumb article.

GEORGETOWN, Guyana - A 14-year-old girl has died after
neighbors and a
local pastor tried to treat her convulsions with an exorcism at a
church, and Guyanese police said Friday they are investigating.
Sangeeta Persaud began to have convulsions as she was drinking tea for
breakfast at her grandmother's home in Canal Number Two. The woman said
neighbors arrived to help, and a local pastor convinced them she was
suffering from demonic possession. After trying to cast out the demons
at her home [neighbors] carried her to a church, where the pastor and
aides rubbed or pounded on her stomach and had her drink lime juice.
She was finally taken to a hospital, where she died. Results from a
preliminary autopsy were inconclusive and no one has been charged, but
West said police were continuing to investigate.
It was not clear why the girl was not taken to a doctor earlier.
[The Lord could not be reached for comment].

You really have to respect a man who dedicates his time to finding
action figure heads which mildly resemble the faces of different
celebrities and then posting them to a website. Well, I suppose you
don't HAVE to respect him, but you probably will after you see the
pictures I'm about to post. They are pretty great.

ALL CAPS CUSTOMER REVIEW OF THE WEEK
And so ends this week's Weird News. As a special bonus, here is a Mr.
Sean to do a job as
bodyguard for the two kids of top manager Frank Mason - someone is
threatening him to get the plans for a secret micro chip. But when Sean
arrives at his house it turns out that he'll not only have to bodyguard
the spoiled brats, but also be their nanny, since they again scared
away their former one. From then on he's occupied more protecting
himself from the kids than them from the villain.
