It is time once again for
Jewelry, flowers and dinner Scott,
Jewelry, flowers and dinner! 

This week’s stupid headlines and my stupider sophomoric and sometimes offensive comments.

One headline may be completely made up, guess the fake and win a mention and a Whoop-tee-doo. 'None of the above' may be a correct answer.


Hawaii officials warn of possible lava evacuation - What could possibly force lava to have to leave?

Man smashes 10 Commandments - Claims the hardest one was that Adultery thing.  "I had to get married to do that, of course that made number six easier to smash."

Man loses 270 pounds, wins 'Teacher of the Year' - Does the Teacher of the Year have any say in this?

Tori Spelling & Dean McDermott's Biggest Fight Yet Involves a Baked Potato - Oh big deal, sooner or later every couple has the baked potato fight!

Large flightless bird closes Indiana highway -  Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame Street?

University of Idaho to change football name from Idaho Vandals to Idaho Spuds - You just can't offend all those kids with spray paint.

'Operation' game inventor can't afford his surgery - Plus he can't find a surgeon that doesn't light up his nose.

Pope Francis declares evolution and Big Bang theory are right and God isn't 'a magician with a magic wand' - However, he did make little green apples.

Google searching for cancer cure - If it was that easy we'd have had a cure years ago.  I'm pretty sure you have to develop a cure before you can find it on the internet.

Giffords struggling to make guns a midterm issue - It may be a little late, the election is Tuesday.

Jose Canseco Accidentally Shoots Off His Middle Finger - I think the Giffords may have just won a vote, and Jose is at a road rage disadvantage.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie Argues With Sandy Heckler - I'm pretty sure I went to school with a Sandy Heckler.

Oklahoma Gun Range Awarded Liquor License - Relax, they are only allowed to serve US Postal workers.
Medicare bought meds for dead people - They might work, if only they could get them to swallow the pills.


Last week's fake headline was:

Large Boulder found on Mt. Rushmore bears striking resemblance to Obama - No one noticed because it was behind a Bush.
This did not fool:

"Large Boulder found on Mt. Rushmore bears striking resemblance to Obama"--that's just silly!! (Although I once found a potato chip that looked like Queen Victoria.)

Gonna fool her yet! 

Well everything seems to be Obamas fault these day so why should rocks be any different?

Photos, stuff, and a beautiful German Shepard; Just go there! 
I think it's the Obama rock. The one I REALLY think is the craziest is actually true - saw it in the news. But I won't tell!

Crafts and Grandma stuff worth a visit 

I am gonna go for the Obama rock ..........behind a bush LMAO
For your daily shot of humor 
I doubt anyone would admit that a random rock formation on Mt. Rushmore looks like Obama, so I'll pick that one.
A blog site must @ 
I am going with "Large Boulder found on Mt. Rushmore bears striking resemblance to Obama." I am going with the crowd this week. I will hear it is true on Monday or Tuesday.

Good old North Carolina country stuff @ 
I'll join the crowd and pick Obama too. Love your work!

Learn something new every day @ 
Oh, dear. I am going to run with the herd this week, and pick the Obama Boulder as fake. What are the odds of such a coincidence, of all the places where an Obama boulder might be found, for that very rock to be located at Mt. Rushmore?

Get to know Hick, Pony, Smarticus and lots of old TV references from the internets own Val the Dictorian @ 
Large Boulder found on Mt. Rushmore bears striking resemblance to Obama, this would also be the one I would go with, and if I am wrong well Whoop-tee-doo ha ha
It's just his opinion, but in my opinion you need to check Jimmy out @ 
I Hate when so many people get the fake, this mention stuff takes a lot of time.  However these are all fine bloggers, check them out and tell them Cranky sent you!
Oh, I almost forgot, thanks to TexWisGrl @  For her Stupid Headline submission  Go visit for photos of critters you don't see unless you live in Texas.
Come back nest week for more:


  1. can i guess 'none of the above' this week? :)

  2. A large flightless bird in Indiana? You must be talking about my cousin Janet. She's large, flightless and lives in Indiana.

  3. I think Idaho Spuds would become Idaho dirtballs in a flash. No, they don't want to change their name.

  4. Idaho football name change. That's my choice for fake news, though the one about the pope sounds funny too.

  5. This week I am going with "University of Idaho to change football name from Idaho Vandals to Idaho Spuds." I vote people name all their sports teams after me. I will not be offended. Wait a minute most of the people who want the name change are offended for someone else. I guess someone will be offended for me. Naming a team after some group of people is a honor because you like to be more like those people. Plus it can be used to teach people about those people.

  6. "University of Idaho to change football name from Idaho Vandals to Idaho Spuds". Would the Junior Varsity be the Tater Tots? The cheerleaders could be the French Fries & the fans could be Hash Browns The possibilities are endless!!

  7. I'm going with "University of Idaho to change football name from Idaho Vandals to Idaho Spuds" it could be a good idea but "eye" just don't see it.

  8. I'm going with the Idaho Vandals as the fake headline. Wish I had a funny line to go with my guess, but as they say I got nuthin.'

  9. I was leaning towards declaring the Pope fake, but I figured that might not bode well. So make room on the bandwagon for me. I say the Idaho Spuds are not gonna happen. Did Capital One use rampaging potatoes in their credit card commercials? I think not.

  10. I'm going with the Pope. I just can't imagine a Pope and Big Bang in the same sentence.

  11. I snorted tea out my nose when I read the first headline.
    I once worked at a small weekly paper and sometimes we had typos that were embarrassing.
    LIke the one for a local well-respected businessman whose obit said "John lived the good life, but assed away on Sunday......"
    His wife called a few days later to say, "I know John was at times lazy, but I didn't think he assed it away."

  12. The Fighting Spuds?! (And I can't buy a break. They put some other guy's picture in my story. Damn!) :)


  13. I certainly want the one about Idaho changing their nickname to be false, so I'll go with that one. I've always thought "Vandals" was one of the coolest nicknames for a sports team ever.

  14. Looks like a ton of winner for last weeks headlines.

    I'll go with Idaho too. I'm going to follow the crowd this time.

    Have a fabulous day. :)

  15. I'm with Sully.
    The Vandals can't change their name to the Spuds.

  16. Totally confused! This is my second visit back here to noodle over them all! My instinct is "none of the above," but I will say it's the inventor of "Operation." Just seems weird that anybody as old as he must be can't get Medicare to pay for surgery. Right?
