Discovery of the Day: Snorkeler Finds Two Skeletons Having a ‘Tea Party’ Underwater in Arizona

Now this is a mad tea party.

A man was snorkeling in the Colorado River on Monday, when he was shocked to find two skeletons.

He quickly contacted the La Paz County Sheriff’s Office about the “human remains,” and they sent personnel out to investigate.

The sheriff’s office reported wrote about the incident on their Facebook page Monday, with a video one of their divers took of the scene.

“When Firefighter Foerstner located the alleged remains, he found it to be an underwater tea-party with two fake skeletons sitting in lawn chairs,” they wrote.

Fortunately they were not real bones, but we still don’t know who put them there and why.

There are some clues however, so the Internet can speculate to their heart’s content.

One of the skeletons was wearing a pair of aviator sunglasses, and the the other was holding a sign that contained what appears to be the phrase “Bernie Livin the Dream in the River” as well as the date “August 16, 2014.”

This has some people thinking it is some sort of “Weekend at Bernie’s” joke.

The police told AP they won’t be looking into it any further.

“I don’t think they were trying to set up anything to scare anyone. I think they were gonna try to be funny,” said Lt. Curtis Bagby.

Illinois Republican Rep. Joe Walsh is under fire for comments he made Thursday night in his final debate against Democrat Tammy Duckworth -- he said he opposes abortion "without exception," even when the life of the mother is at stake.

The trouble came when the Tea Partier doubled down on his position with the media afterward:

There's no such exception as life of the mother. And as far as health of the mother, same thing, with advances in science and technology, health of the mother has become a tool for abortions anytime under any reason.

The facts Walsh used to justify his position have been proven absolutely false. In fact, studies show that pregnancy-related deaths for women are on the rise.

This Is Important, You Should Watch It of the Day: Last month, Tea Party members gathered outside an ICNA (Islamic Circle of North America)-sponsored charity event held to raise money for women's shelter and hunger relief, and hurled racist epithets and bewildering ethnocentric remarks at the American-Muslim families entering the Yorba Linda Community Center. Several members of congress even showed up to express their support for the protesters and their message.
