I love it when people go to police to complain when they've been shafted while engaging in illegal activities.

A 52-year-old man from the German town of Darmstadt tried in vain to get a refund for 400 euros ($475) worth of what he said was "bad marijuana" from his dealer before turning to the police for help, according to authorities.

One of my cubemates just offered the other cubemate some jalapeño Pringles, which he pronounced with a "j" instead of an "h." (Okay, so he's not into Mexican food. Doesn't know how to pronounce "jalapeno." No biggie.)

After the other cubemate accepted the chips, he actually smelled them and said, "Nice bouquet." He continued to say something about them while chewing -- I unfortunately couldn't hear -- and then commented, "Strong finish."

It totally cracked me up. He was as serious about these chips as wine tasters are about tasting wine. :) Clearly, I need to enlarge my world so I, too, can get this much enjoyment out of jalapeño Pringles.
