Here pig, pig, pig...
How about $1 million to help Utah control its non-secular cricket population? Or hundreds of thousands to rid Californian's of unsightly tattoos? Hey Alabama, you want money for oyster rehab? You got it! No joke. These are among the thousands of daffy projects Congress has agreed to fund. Is this a great country or what.
What's next, Wii Sue?
A ten-year old girl in the UK got sassed by a Nintendo video game that told her she could stand to drop a stone or two. Little bugger used the F word. Not the kid, the machine. Heck, he may be a pudge ball but at least Richard Simmons is polite.
There are B movies...
And then there are stinkers like this 1955 western. A musical (think: Oklahoma with longshoremen) set in the 1880s in which the town's men folk went to battling a neighboring town. To punish them their women folk withheld... well... you know. Quite possibly the worst flick ever to make it to the big screen- and that's saying something.
Little green men
Pray these wee lads don't visit you this week. They are not Irish. They are not even Earthlings. This Friday keep one eye on the heavens for any sign that we are not alone. If you see them, don't panic. Just sit back, enjoy the scenery and take lots of pictures on your journey. Oops. Darn, spoiled the surprise.
