WORLD TO END....
BUT NOT 75 PHONE!
New studies of prophetic Aztec carvings reveal their plumed serpent god Quetzalcoatl will swallow the Earth late this year, only to spit up the 75 meter ham phone band like a hair ball. Anyone on 75 at the time will survive and keep comparing gall bladder operations basically forever.
KARMA IS A BEAR,
EH BILLY BOY?
What a surprise. 1960s cartoon advertising mascot Billy Hallilcrafters, the boy who gleefully intercepted tragic distress calls on his swell S-85 still spends all his waking hours almost 60 years later eager to eavesdrop on other people's bad luck and trouble. Too bad. These days Billy doesn't hear much except sump pumps, wall warts and computer power supplies and gee-whiz is he ticked!
MAG LOUP GAROU
Who knew trendy hams would go head over heels for French werewolves as space-saving, surprisingly-effective antennas. Seems like every other ham in the world has been bitten by this bug-eyed solution for those who don't have room for full size wire antennas and aren't allergic to wolf dander.
What's next? Elecanthropia? No wait, that was last year.
New statistics show ham country hunters are ten time more likely to start collecting Red Rose Tea ceramic figurines – those troubling little premiums in specialy-marked 100 teabag packages. Same goes for Lighthouse and Grid Square collectors, and fanciers of Other Stuff On The Air, all gateway habits leading to an embarrassing hoard of knick knacks spilling out into the street, alarming neighbors who will call the authorities, And they will too, don't you test them!
POOR NIKOLA TESLA'S
LUNCH MONEY STOLEN!
Adding insult to injury, aside from all the astonishing inventions stolen from electromagnetic wizard Nikola Tesla, the big patsy was regularly bullied out of his lunch money by eight year old toughs who hung around outside his Wardenclyffe lab and waited for him to knock off for lunch, looking forward to a nice bowl of soup, only to receive a knuckle sandwich and a wicked Indian burn.
OLD WAX CAPS
GIVE YOU WORMS?
Yes! Of all parasites, capacitor wax worms are the among the largest, most digusting and difficult to treat, yet many hams continue to hoard their carriers, salvaged. usually defective, tubular wax/paper capacitors just because they might need them someday.
