In Memoriam - Mr. Hamburger

I just received some bad news.  Mr. Hamburger of Huntsville, TX is no more.  A small part of my past is gone forever.  

Oh dear God!!  I went to Google Maps street view and found out that Mr. Hamburger isn't just closed - the whole building is gone!  Look at that happy, innocent sign still welcoming eaters.  It's like he doesn't realize the building is gone.

Bear Terror

Bear Terrorizes City, Hero Saves the Day

Santa Fe – A vicious black bear rampaged the streets of this small New Mexico town early Monday morning driving locals and tourists indoors for several hours until the threat was over.  Although the beast didn't injure anyone, there were some close calls.  Local resident and photographer Steven Walenta narrowly escaped the wrath of the crazed animal by hiding in a Port-O-Potty for nearly two hours.  When questioned, Walenta said "Good thang I ducked into the Port-O-Potty 'cause that bear scared the shit outta me!"  The incident was over just as quickly as it began when an unidentified local hero disabled the bear and undoubtedly saved numerous lives.  When asked for an interview, the hero just ran away.  

Exclusive video of the ordeal can be viewed below.  (Warning  - graphic content)
