Everyone In Improv Troupe Balding
NEW YORK—Every member of local improvisational troupe “Calhoun” is
balding, audience members observed Tuesday during the group’s 8 p.m.
According to sources, the group—which spent the majority of its
35-minute set playing various silly characters, doing outrageous voices,
and pretending to be animals or members of the opposite sex—consists
solely of adult males in their mid-to-late 30s who are either completely
bald or have severely receded hairlines.
“Great fucking set,” out-of-breath Calhoun member Daryl Crane said
after the performance, sweat collecting in rills on his thin-haired
scalp. “Everyone was on fucking fire. Adam, that move you made, when you
called back to the prison scene—where the hell did that come from?
“I was, like, I’ll just follow Adam and see where this thing goes,”
added Crane, his slightly undersized American Apparel T-shirt tightly
hugging his sweaty, protruding stomach.

Make The Reading Viaduct Park A Reality
Philadelphia has a great opportunity to add 300,000 square feet of
new green space to the city’s already impressive network of parks. It’s

and add new opportunities for outdoor activities for all of the city’s
residents and visitors.
Email Mayor Nutter and City Council and ask them to make this new park a reality in 2012.

pirates and teachers, frogs and vines, snakes and shamanism, plants and visions
woven across the arc of a quarter century's worth of heavyweight Amazonian,
Texan and New York City adventures.
Rest Well, El Pulpo
FRANKFURT, Germany (AP)—Paul the Octopus, the tentacled tipster who fascinated
soccer fans by predicting results at the World Cup, died Tuesday.
Paul had reached the octopus old age of 2 1/2 years and died in his tank on
Tuesday morning at the Sea Life aquarium in the western German city of
Oberhausen, spokeswoman Ariane Vieregge said.
The octopus seemed to be in good shape when he was checked late Monday, but
he did not make it through the night. He died of natural causes, Vieregge said.
