Funny Stories in the News

I came across some funny stories today on line, here are a few tidbits.

A Little Gas

A Dutch veterinarian was fined 600 guilders (about $240)
for causing a fire that destroyed a farm in Lichten Vourde,
the Netherlands. The vet had been trying to convince a farmer
that his cow was passing flatulent gas; to demonstrate, the
vet ignited the gas, but the cow became a “four-legged
flame-thrower” and ran wild, setting fire to bales of hay.
Damage to the farm was assessed at $80,000. The cow was
unharmed. AP

Anna Nicole Lives On!

21 05 2007

The spirit of our favourite tragically flawed celebrity Playmate, Anne Nicole Smith, lives on in 22 year old Kristin Georgi – who recently married 84 year old Joe Hardy (a wealthy lumber magnate) in a private ceremony in Las Vegas.  He is 62 years her senior, and well old enough to be her grandpapie. . .

I wonder what the bookie’s odds are when this old chappie will croak!??

I wonder what the prenup says. . .  . .

Clogs Clog Medical Machinery. What a load of Croc!

20 04 2007


I came across this story from Sweden, apparently my FAVOURITE comfort shoes (Crocs) are interferring with medical equipement in the hospitals, and are now being banned.

 What is the world coming to, nooooooooo!

 I adore my Crocs (I have two pairs, one regular pair, and the Mary-Jane’s style).  They are bar-none the most comfortable pairs of shoes I own.  Every person should own at least one pair.

I don’t think the story is a Croc, but those that read by blog know how I enjoy a good play on words. . . . .

17 04 2007


As a Canadian, and now someone who lives in Montreal – The White Ribbon Campaign is something we are all aware of, and take part in every year. The white ribbon campaign is specifically Men Againist Violence Aganist Woman.

This campaign was started in 1991 after the school masscare at Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal.  A lone gunman, Marc Lepine,  killed 14 woman before killing himself on December 6th, 1989.

Are You SMARTER than a 5th Grader??? 5th-graders accused of sex in Louisiana school

7 04 2007

Late March I made an entry about a little daughter of one of my co-workers, she is six, and the little ‘sex’ song she came up with – read about it here.  That amuzed and worried me.. . . . then  I stumbbled across the below posted article, about 5th graders having sex in an unsupervised class room.

My jaw dropped, not only for the pure fact that its about 11 year old fornicating, but by how severe the penalities may be for these children.   Shocked yes, do I agree,  is it unfair.  I’m not sure.

I’m just shocked. I’m not sure how to wrap my head around it.  Problems of our kids are far more grave than they were when we were children.

When did sex become a “problem” for pre-teens?   Parents, have you had “the talk” with you teeny boppers?
