Bad week for:
Traveling light, after Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz set out for a nine-day trip to Indonesia with more than 500 tons of luggage. An airfreight company used 572 workers to carry the load, which included two Mercedes-Benz limousines and a pair of specialty escalators.
Mementos, after nursing home officials found two World War II hand grenades in a 91-year-old man’s refrigerator. The home was evacuated, and the grenades taken away by a bomb squad.
Unwavering support, after audience members at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference unwittingly waved Russian flags that a pair of activists had emblazoned with Donald Trump’s name. “Most people didn’t realize they were Russian flags,” said prankster Jason Charter, “or they didn’t care.” ■
