STUPID HEADLINES 010514
It is time once again for:
|Well I'll be!|
STUPID HEADLINE SUNDAY
This week’s stupid headlines and my stupider sophomoric and sometimes offensive comments.
No fake headline this week.
How GM is making it near impossible to steal a Tahoe – Well you can steal one, but at 3 MPG you won’t get very far.
Marines delay female fitness plan after half fail pullup test – In order to even the playing field the Marines are requiring all male recruits to have a “C” cup or better.
Walmart recalls donkey meat in China – They received too many complaints that the meat tastes like ass!
Drunken woman reportedly shocked by electric fence at Denver Zoo – Why is an electric fence so shocking? I see them all the ti…oh wait.
Florida beachgoer discovers human foot in shoe – Well it’s not Stepin Fetchit’s.
Chinese ship in Antarctica rescue fears it could get stuck in heavy ice, too – Al Gore claims that due to Global Warming it can’t be ice… “It must just be frozen water.”
Man tries to sell stolen brains on eBay – Brain was from a Mr. Abe Normal.
Oregon’s horse tripping ban and other new laws kick off 2014 – That just ruined half of my Colorado pot smoking and Oregon horse tripping vacation.
Colorado teacher asked students to send topless photos – Only if they wanted extra credit.
Deer walks into Pa. sporting goods store through front door, gets tackled by customer – I don’t know this joke but the punch line has to be “hey, it’s only a buck!”
Zac Efron's jaw wired shut after bizarre sex accident, friends joke – Sounds serious to me, not a joke, but at least someone must be smiling.
Last week’s fake headline was:
Study proves left-handed people prefer pepper grinders to shakers – Another study proved that studies studying stupid stuff are stupid.
And the winners are:
i'm going for pepper grinders this week.

I'm left-handed and prefer pepper grinders, but I still think this one is fake.
If I was guessing, I think I would also guess the pepper grinder story.

Methinks the Colorado teacher needs to put in a bid on the stolen brains being offered on Ebay (see above).ReplyDelete
not even going to challenge us with a possible lie this week, eh? going soft on us?ReplyDelete
You have quite a talent for squeezing humor out of these headlines. This puts you in the same category as Will Rogers, who I hold in the highest esteem.ReplyDelete
Your jest about "frozen water" is actually sorta true. Science ships now encounter sea ice extending much farther from the polar ice than in the past. This sea ice is created when ice from the polar ice cap melts and runs off into the ocean waters, and then freezes. It is now interfering with surface currents at a particular spot and may cause severe weather changes even in the northern hemisphere. Go figure.ReplyDelete
Foot in a shoe - - LOLReplyDelete
Heh, heh. I must laugh at your ruined vacation.ReplyDelete
The 'marines' headline reminds me of one of my favorite short stories. Have you ever read "Harrison Bergeron" by Kurt Vonnegut? If not, I have a feeling you'd like it as much as I do. Here's a link...ReplyDelete
No horse tripping? Next thing you know they're going to ban cow tipping in Idaho.ReplyDelete
As a former Marine, I know how important it is to maintain your physical fitness.ReplyDelete
Women Marines don't have to meet the Men's PFT requirements. They have their own standards. WMs should be held to the WM standards the same way Male Marines are held to the Male Marine standards.
I't all about being ready to do your job.
