Where newspaper stories come from

Journalist Robert Bell is one of the wittiest people I know. From his Facebook page:

“Looking out my window at a man who has put four milk crates on the ground. Resting gingerly atop the crates is a ladder. He is on the top step of the ladder with a string of Christmas lights around his neck, nails in his mouth and a hammer between his legs. This is why God created the briefs section in your local newspaper.”
