STUPID HEADLINE SUNDAY
This week’s stupid headlines and my stupider sophomoric and sometimes offensive comments.
One headline is completely made up. Guess the fake and win a mention.
Obama’s FTC now going after evil capitalist piano teachers – Well it’s about time. I feel much safer now. Frig you Miss Grundy they’re gonna get you!
David Beckham forced to perform humiliating sex act in hazing ritual as teen – It won’t be long until a new movie will be out, “Bend Over Like Beckham.”*
6 detained in Mexico radioactive material theft – Men were found in the middle of the night hiding behind a bush…the GLOW kinda gave them away.
Colorado boy, 6, suspended, accused of sexual harassment for kissing girl on cheek – Which cheek?
Congressional Budget Deal Reached By Bipartisan Negotiators – This is clearly the fake headline.
Nantucket’s only funeral home closes, prompting island scramble – Probably just another of those “Going out of business sale” gimmicks.
India's Supreme Court upholds colonial-era anti-gay sex law – Now I can visit India and feel safe, except for those left-handed people, short people, and people with speech impediments. I’m sure they will also be outlawed soon.
What's the etiquette of 'selfies' at funerals? – Probably should not be done next to an open casket.
GM recalls faulty brakes on Chevy's – “I remember in 1987, we sold some cars with the crappiest brakes ever. People slid all over on those things and we just laughed and laughed!”
Pilots, not computers, should fly planes – One pilot tried to abort a flight by pressing Ctrl-Alt-Delete, and right away they want to ban computers from flights.
Man steals truck to make vehicle theft court date – Somehow I don’t think this is going to end well for him.
Congress wants military to have common camouflage – I’m sure Congress will mandate a pattern that really stands out!
*Sorry, that was cheap and degrading…I won’t do it again…maybe.
Last week’s fake headline was:
San Francisco passes law making “having fun” in city parks illegal – I wonder how they define “Having Fun?”
And the winners are:
I really hope Francis was a bar bouncer, but I’m going with the San Fran fun law…just for fun. Visit TexWisGirl @ http://run-a-roundranch.blogspot.com/ for photos and “stuff.”

I've had lots of fun in San Francisco parks and I find this one hard to swallow. Hmmnn, there's a clue to what me and my girlfriend were doing in that park in this comment.
No comment on the clue, but then my mind runs in the gutter

I spend my working day elbow-deep in the scientific method, always emphasizing the difference between subjective and objective hypotheses. It seems that laws, too, should meet the "measurable" criteria. How can you quantify fun?
Leave it to the “Victorian" for complicated scientific reasoning.

Fishducky also guessed right, but she has “retired” so do not visit
Please stop by and congratulate all the winners.
