Derailment Stranger than Fiction

By Douglas V. Gibbs

A couple years ago after I was on Hannity in an immigration debate with an individual who was down in San Diego, while I was on the air from the Murrieta immigration protest that wound up turning around a couple buses, my local supporters told me, "man, you made that guy sound like a moron."

"It wasn't difficult," I replied.  "His last name was Morones."

I joke about that kind of thing.  Truth is often stranger than fiction.  The politician that got in trouble for showing off his male parts through text messages was named Weiner, and the most dishonest press secretary Obama has had is Josh Ernest.

Well, sometime in the news the "stranger than fiction" kinds of things happen.

In Charles City, Iowa a freight train car derailed, ran off the tracks, and slammed into a local tavern.  The incident is not what was so interesting about this story.  The funny part is first, it was a "grain car" that slammed into the back of a bar, and second is that the name of the watering hole is. . . 

Wait for it.

Drum roll, please.


Now that is funny.

Derailed says that the damages to the bar from the derailment is estimated at about $10,000.  Nobody was injured during the incident.
