Just for fun, let's take a moment on this, the first day of 2010, to recap the twelve strangest stories in San Antonio over the last year. I'm going to pick one from each month that I found to be especially weird.
Seventy dead Siamese cats are found in trash bags.
Dumb criminal helps the cops catch him.
I learn a little more about H.R. Pufnstuf.
San Antonio's city manager dresses in drag (and she's a woman!).
A lawyer is busted for bringing pot to the courthouse.
Lame "Thriller" is put on display at the Alamo.
Meth lab workers do a little hanky-panky on the job.
A chicken on every table.
A school district puts history on display.
Huggers show up at the Alamo again.
A king acts as if he really was a king.
A chicken in every police station.
Let's hope your New Year is safe and prosperous, and let's hope it's just strange enough to be interesting.
