Weirdest Story Ever

I had to read this a couple times to really understand it. According to Newsday, a Bollywood film studio has seen success shooting in Connecticut. This has prompted Frank Capra Jr, to try and convince North Stonington to build a movie studio. The land belongs to the Mashantucket Pequots tribe who also run Foxwoods. Said a representative of North Stonington, "I don't think a film studio is viable in North Stonington. We don't have squat in North Stonington."

This seriously sounds less like a news report, and more like someone's dream they had after they ate pickles before bed. "So Indians wanted to build a studio, and then the son of the guy who directed 'It's a Wonderful Life' showed up, and he said 'I have some Indians that want to build a studio' and I was like 'not that kind of Indians, this kind of Indians...'" --Terrence Ryan
