Where's Matthew Broderick when you need him

Komodo Dragon Mauls, Kills Boy, 8, in Indonesia
A Komodo dragon attacked and killed an 8-year-old boy in eastern Indonesia, the first recorded deadly attack on a human by one of the giant lizards in 33 years, a national park spokesman said Monday.
The boy was mauled when he went to defecate behind a bush Saturday on Komodo island, Heru Rudiharto said.
"The Komodo bit him on his waist and tossed him viciously from side to side," Rudiharto said

What a coincidence; some station just aired The Freshman this weekend. If you haven't seen it, Matthew Broderick has his hands full trying to deal with a Komodo Dragon and Marlon Brando at the same time. It was a cute movie, check it out.

This attack, on the other hand, is absolutely gruesome. Take this spot off the list of ideas on where to hold a Boy Scout Camporee. The list of AKJ events continues to pile up, and they're getting stranger as I go along. Kinkajous, muskies, and now Komodo Dragons. What's next?

I couldn't stand that movie. The soundtrack alone was enough to make me turn it off, not to mention the plot. Marlon Brando wasn't acting in it, rather he was mimicking an earlier role (If you're not going to act, just take your name off the credits and replace it with "Vito Corleone") But hey, you didn't want a movie review! I guess I was just disappointed because I was looking for something a lot better the night I rented The Freshman.

I think we need to send some Porta-Potties to Indonesia. Bushes don't quite cut it.
