The Strange remains the same for 18 July 2014

Both your DN editors are back in their respective headquarters in the US and Europe. We managed to spot both a “chupacabra” and a jackalope.

    I guess the makers of Persecuted left the “them” of the conspiracy deliberately vague because the target audience already knows who “they” are, for given values of knowing.

    Oh, Roger Ebert, how you are missed. I’d have loved to have read his skewering of it.

    I have so much love for that jackelope… =P And sweet Pete, MORE “haunted” celebrities? Who has all that money to throw around for someone to just stay in a certain part of the house because they’re afraid of the ‘haints’? (no really, I could use a better job. Serious inquiries only).

    That’s no jackalope. It’s an obvious fake. It’s got DEER antlers. Jackalopes have Pronghorn Antelope horns. Which are not antlers, hence why they’re called horns. Which is why they’re called JackALOPEs.
