Old fish

God Bless America

All aboard

Hundreds of men and women around the world “dropped trou” recently in celebration of the 18th annual No Pants Subway Ride, reports the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. Immodestly clad in panties and scanties, young folk and old from New York, the flagship city, to the far reaches of the globe they boarded London’s Tube, Tokyo’s Metro, Berlin’s U-Bahn and Lisbon’s Metropolitano for a near-nude fun fest. New York-based comedy collective, Improve Everywhere, established the event in 2002 and it went viral across the planet. Their aim: “to surprise and delight random strangers through positive pranks.”

A fishy tale

Groupers are sluggish-looking fat fish that kind of hang around the waters off the coast of Florida, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. How fat are they? The one caught off the southwest coast of Florida recently by angler Jason Boyll weighed in at 350 pounds. And, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Research Institute, Jason’s fish was about 50 years old, making it the institute’s oldest sample.

An amazing buzzer-beater

It may have taken some luck, but high school cager, Katara Key, used her well-honed skill to sink a 65-foot winning basket from across the court for Reading High against rival William Penn High School in Pennsylvania. It happened just as the buzzer sounded the end of the game. As she put it in a post-game interview with KPVI-TV: “I just saw the spiral and I was like yeah, that’s going in. I practice that shot all the time with my coach.”
