ODO 71: C U Next Tueday

Published by Odd Dad Out on

 

This week I got both a good laugh and a painful lesson from listening to She Podcasts. Warning, don’t teach your Mexican co-worker what  “See You Next Tuesday” means. Spoilers: it doesn’t end well. I’ve also got eclipse news, dead bodies in strange places, a workplace affair gone horribly wrong, and by far the worst way to find out your spouse is cheating. All that, and I revisit a previous feature for it’s spinoff podcast, Movie Maintenance Presents.

 -WEIRD NEWS-

Artist Stephanie Rose has decided to oppose selfie culture in a “special” way. She takes what she’s dubbed “StefDies.” She drops, face down, dead in random locations, some major tourist spots, and has a picture taken. She says that people need to stop being part of the camera and be start being part of the picture.

If somebody dies in a NYC subway, the policy is to get the body removed quickly and get business back up and running ASAP. Apparently this also means that when they bag and tag a body, they dump it in the nearest, out of public view, area around. This often ends up being the subway workers’ break rooms or random storage closets.

A former corrections officer is 6 months pregnant and facing 10 years in prison on rape and corruption charges after having an affair with an inmate for over a year.
