The Amish guys who were arrested on buggy-safety charges. And a beautiful ceremony following the Russia plane crash

Well here’s something you don’t see every day:
Amish mugshots.
Apparently these eight gents from Kentucky were ordered to jail Monday night because they refused to pay fines for failing to affix orange safety triangles to their horse-drawn buggies.
Come on, you know you’ve gotten a ticket for that too, haven’t you?
Why wouldn’t these fine Amish fellows put the safety triangles on their buggies? Well, apparently they think the orange safety triangle is too “modern” for them.
I say hey, wait till they get a load of the “modern” amenities in the county jail!

And because we’re talking about the Amish, it’s a good time to break out this old chestnut. Take it away, Weird Al…

**You may have heard recently about the horrible plane crash that killed 44 members of a professional hockey team in Russia, a team called Lokomotiv Yaroslavl.
At the game scheduled that night, the team Lokomotiv was scheduled to play, Dynamo Minsk put on an incredibly touching “hockey funeral” for their fallen opponents.
It’s a beautiful tribute, one that doesn’t need translation.
