Instead of gloom and doom this week, we take a look at events that are just ... weird.

How about a plan to reduce carbon emissions in Australia by shooting wild camels? (Their burps and farts contain methane, you see.)

How about a required history unit on Estee Lauder in Texas schools?

Plus journalist Conn Hallinan's Are You Serious? Awards; odd newspaper items from Connecticut; and satire (or is it?) by The Onion, Roy Zimmerman, and George Carlin.

This installment is a replay of NWN #207 (February 2012).
