Dear Pastor Joe: Why did Shamgar, the son of Anath, slay of the Philistines six hundred men with an ox goad?

Dear Willy: First, thanks for making it clear which Shamgar you were asking about.  He slew them with an ox goad because his pocket square was at the dry cleaners.  The Lord works in mysterious ways.

I am undecided, unable to choose between these for Headline of the Day du Jour:

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel Welcome First Child

and

Ancient giant lizards gave birth in open oceans

Close call, isn't it?

Crispin Sartwell writes in the NYT, "More recent work in philosophy includes various forms of realism about the world: the idea that reality is not the product of consciousness, or of human perceptual structures or languages or interpretive communities, but exists independently."  No!  Who could have imagined such a thing?  If Bishop Berkeley falls in the forest and there's nobody there, will a naive realist sprout from his remains?

In the televised debate, the Milibot finally had the chance to denounce and abjure some of New Labour’s record before the voting public at large. And what did he choose? Looking back on thirteen years of wars, bloodshed, bombs, slaughter, tax scams, privatisation, crooked bailouts, arbitrary detentions, surveillance, death, penury, crappy indie music, shameful BBC dramas, genocide, and the emergence of Simon Cowell as a figure of cultural significance – after all that, he attacked his party for supposedly being too lenient on asylum and immigration.

Today's Headline Nonpareil appears to be some sort of mistake, a clue in a Jumble puzzle, a crytographically addled secret message, a misprint, or the lead story from American Angler:

Kanye West mobbed in Armenian lake

Sentence of the day du jour au jus with oodles of extra gravy.  It's from The Guardian:

"The UK intelligence agency GCHQ has collected so many dick pics they’ve become something of a problem for the organisation.

If you haven't seen this yet, you will never be able to guess what it is.  I guessed it was a new kind of Dr. Who-vian Weeping Angel or the result of a petrificus totalus charm gone awry.  But it's not.  It's Lucille Ball.  I guess it's Lucille Ball after dying, returning to life as a vampire, and then being bronzed.  But I'm not sure.

The correct Richard?  Observe the faultless tailoring of my 501s and the flawlessly untied Converse All-Stars.  Note the fountain pen ink stain on my shirt pocket.  How could I not be the correct Richard?
