Hijinks in the News

Post by infidel » Wed Sep 18, 2013 10:38 am

I need a good word that means something along the lines of "tomfoolery" or "shenanigans", but with a positive spin, because this dude is an all-time winner:

In the end, for a one time cost of a little over $3000 (or a little over $2200 if you subtract the tax deduction), and a few other similar deals he’s taken advantage of to bolster his numbers, David never has to pay for a flight in his life ever again.

"high jinks" is good, although I think I like the look of "hijinks" better.

I debated the spelling. I have no clue which is correct. It is a good word... Or phrase, whatever the case may be.

The Wichita Eagle wrote:Wichita — Police in Wichita say a man who wanted a massage from a naked woman in his motel room changed his mind when she disrobed and ended up fleeing after being threatened by her boyfriend.

The Wichita Eagle reports the woman arrived at the man’s room at the Howard Johnson Express Inn shortly after 11 p.m. Wednesday. He told police he didn’t like her body so he decided to leave and asked for his money back, but she wouldn’t give it to him.

Police say the woman then called her boyfriend, who threatened the 30-year-old man with bodily harm. The man became frightened for his safety and left the hotel without his money.

I admit not being able to remember the name of the appropriate thread. Though, if you examine your original premise for this thread, it may fit after all - the ugly masseuse and her boyfriend may have a pretty clever scam going.

For me it was because "The Ugly Masseuse and Her Boyfriend" had the ring of a title for a Douglas Adams novel.

Perhaps one that was being adapted for Broadway by Keith Richards and Lady Gaga.

Douglas Adams is dead. So his new novel will likely be titled "Tales from the Crypt" adapted for broadway by the Grateful Dead.
