Do you have a license for your monkey? Justin Bieber, pop singer and Lhasa apso hybrid, had to leave a capuchin monkey in quarantine after landing in Germany last week because he didn’t have the proper documentation to bring the simian into the country.
But it could have been worse; airport authorities nearly barred Bieber entry into Germany himself because he couldn’t produce proper papers to bring a Lhasa apso into the country.
Every flea dreams of a break like this: An entire troupe of performing fleas fell victim to freezing temperatures in Germany and died, forcing the trainer of the flea circus to scramble to find replacement insects so he could keep an engagement at a fair.
Fortunately, Justin Bieber had a spare troupe of fleas keeping warm in his shiny blond locks with ample show business experience.
Where every hour is happy hour: Gov. Jay Inslee, D-Harshing the Buzz, has asked the State Liquor Control Board to develop rules to stop the spread of pot bars. At least two bars in the state are allowing patrons to use their own marijuana. Marijuana is legal but not in public spaces, such as bars.
But the problem is likely to solve itself. There’s no way any bar will be able to stock enough pretzels and bar mix to handle the munchies of a pub full of pot smokers.
