STUPID HEADLINES 100917
It’s time again for
Could they put sound suppressors on shoes?
STUPID HEADLINE SUNDAY (on a Monday)
This week’s stupid headlines and my stupider, sometimes sophomoric comments.
Wyoming man arrested after claiming he traveled from 2048 to warn of alien invasion – Alcohol may have been involved.
Washington state woman who planned to eat date's heart sentenced – I’m guessing her “last meal” request won’t be granted.
Cam Newton Says It's 'Funny' Hearing Female Reporter 'Talk About Routes' – I don’t think we’ll be hearing the phrase, “The floor recognizes Senator Newton” any time soon.
Flipping the bird in church is protected speech, court rules – To my mind, giving the finger in church is like pole vaulting in a thunderstorm.
Coach: 'If you protest the flag, you're off the team' – In my day we had to run laps if we got a flag, protesting the laps got you kicked off.
Satanists now want to have their cake and eat it, too – But it has to be Devil’s Food not Angel’s Food.
'Sunday Night Football' ratings down amid national anthem protests – I watched but I took a knee in protest…does that count?
Nancy Sinatra: 'Murderous Members of NRA Should Face Firing Squad' – I’m not an NRA member and have never owned or even fired a gun, but I’m still a little relieved that this person, best known for being created by a former mob darling’s sperm, is not in charge of anything.
Schools Phase Out Valedictorian Title Citing 'Unhealthy Competition' – Also ‘Cum Laude’ graduates are now just being called, “kids who done good!”
Female teacher, 25, gets prison for 'sexual contact' with boy while watching 'Deadpool' – If they were watching ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’ she might have got the chair!
The FEEL-GOOD story of the week:
Man who found missing Minnesota girl gives $7G reward to her – A speck of good from a story that is horrific.
Isn't it funny how the anti-gun/NRA people are always suggesting violent means of dealing with the NRA and gun owners? And she wants a firing squad? She knows that would mean the use of guns, right? In other news. I thought all of the Sinatras were dead.. Loved the "feel good" story. :) - Happy Monday, Joe!ReplyDelete
Isn't it amazing, that you say "take a knee" and everyone knows what you're talking about? All this BS started with just one narcissistic jerk.ReplyDelete
Some of my favorite people are librarians. It's true. But apart from them, I have never failed to be utterly dumbfounded by some of the insanity I've seen promoted by librarians. . .ReplyDelete
And yeah, what Valley Angel said. . .
I feel like I ought to have something witty to say about flipping the bird in church, but I don't think I can do any better than just to let the headline stand on its own merits. . . ;)
I think the world has gone mad. I will say I've lost my respect for Hollywood and the NFL. Okay there wasn't much respect before all this craziness.ReplyDelete
I linked you to Silly Sunday.
Have a fabulous day. ☺
A great feel gooder.ReplyDelete
I thought I was through seeing "Access denied" on your feel good story, but there it was again today!!ReplyDelete
I got access denied also from Fox News. Do you suppose they read my blog.ReplyDelete
Anyway totally cracked up at "pole vaulting in a thunderstorm."
They should hold up a pinkie, instead of the middle finger. It means the pinfeather because you are not worth a whole bird.ReplyDelete
Now I have to see ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’ReplyDelete
No more valedictorian? Say it isn't so!ReplyDelete
My old high school has done away with weighted classes. So an "A" in gym class counts the same as an "A" in calculus. Which, as you might imagine, will affect grade point averages and class rank. Part of a trend to make everybody equal, I guess. Like giving everyone a trophy for playing.
That woman from Washington gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "eat your heart out." I'm guessing it wasn't a good date.ReplyDelete
