Yardley

Yardley's twin brother died six years ago. Yardley visited the grave every day for five of those years. Last year, for the sake of convenience, they switched places.

Zaphod Beeblebrox

He's just this guy, you know?
One hoopy frood.
(This is his better head.)

Morgue Arrival L

It appears subject's Adam's apple became erect, requiring tracheotomy. Instead, he was run over by a threshing machine.

Optimus Prime Meridian

Eventually, he'll take on the Decepticons.
In the mean time, he'll set the clocks.

Pirates Hijack Space Station

Somalian pirates, under the command of legendary marauder, Abu Kathar, have hijacked the International Space Station and are currently steering it and its crew to the port of Eyl.

It is believed Kathar and his band of buccaneers were stowaways on board the shuttle Endeavor, which docked with the space station yesterday. All astronauts on board both vessels are said to be safe and unharmed.

No ransom demands have yet been made, although Kathar, in preliminary communication with NASA, has reportedly made inquiries into the Troubled Asset Relief Program, saying if there's money available to bail out the 'Big Three' automakers, there should be money to pay for the space station.

chupaconejo

The lack of pointy incisors leads me to believe this is, in fact, a chupaconejo; part chupacabra, part rabbit.

Hera

Eaten and vomited by her father. Sister and (what the hell) wife to Zeus. A generally pissed off goddess. Tricked and tortured Zeus's many mistresses, turning them into all manner of creatures. Annoyed Heracles, her stepson, to no end. Worshiped in temples for eons by mortals with an axe to grind.

Midas

When food and drink went gold on touch, Midas got his servants to feed him. They'd hold up a turkey leg for him to chew, or pour wine down his gullet. Clumsy, but doable.

Sex was a problem at first. Just ask the queen. Uh, never mind, she can't answer. His concubines adjusted, however.

What got him into trouble in the end was that infernal childhood habit of picking his nose.

Thelonius

That crazy metronome only he could hear. Those notes that never got paired together til he came along.

Pixie 2

A pixie wants nothing more than to do a wee bit o' dust and dance in the shadow of a mushroom. And maybe ride your horse when you're not around.

St. Piran

For All Saints Day, here's the Cornish-Irish abbot. They bound him to a mill stone and rolled him off a cliff and into the roiling sea. Being mostly pure, he floated and rode the waves ashore, hallelujah. Thus, surfing was born.
