Eponymous, but probably historically incorect

Cossack insanity

Bored Russian in Brooklyn kills himself while playing Russian roulette in the snowstorm. 

A 37-year-old man fatally shot himself in the head in Brooklyn Saturday night during a drunken game of Russian roulette, a law enforcement source said.

The victim, Zdzislaw ­Golabek, and a pal were playing the deadly game at about 8 p.m. at the height of the blizzard.

That’s hilarious, but poor Zdzislaw would doubtless have been dismayed to learn that the game, or at least its name, was probably coined by a Swiss pulp writer Georges Artur Surdez (1900-1949)  Oh well.

Speaking of revolvers, have you heard the one about the Polack who, arriving home to discover his wife with with his best friend in the marital bed, pulls an enormous horse pistol from his pocket and points it at his own temple? When his wife and friend giggle, he warns, “don’t laugh – you’re next!”

Snow going

Town asks residents not to toss snow into the road ,while reminding them that it’s their legal obligation to keep sidewalks clear.

The public works department, in a statement issued by police, asked residents to not push snow from driveways into the road, as it makes it difficult to keep roads clear.

Residents have 24 hours after the last snowfall to clear the sidewalks in front of their homes, police said in a statement. Residents should also make sure access is clear to fire hydrants by their properties.

Maybe residents are supposed to use hairdryers? It’s been done before.
