Strange news

In the headlines . . . .

It's amazing how some stories make their way to the news wires. I hate to use this tired cliche, but sometimes life is stranger than fiction. Here are a few gems about people not like you and me, thanks to The Associated Press and the Canadian Press.

Oh! I never realized that men are so wicked. I only kept thinking about women;-)

Nice post.

Rose, there is a quote by Bill Cosby that I love: "God has a sense of humor, and we are funny to God."

Shirazi (a.k.a. "I only think about women"), I expect a comment from you about why men should sing to their women as mice do.

Deb S. said...

Gee, maybe Trucker Bob will stop by, too.

Ruben said...

Big deal everyone kills bucks in their bedroom right? LOL

Deb S. said...

Funny, Ruben. :-)

Trucker Bob said...

Your wish is my command.

If you had ever been to Winnipeg you'd know that type of thing (pawn shop) is actually a cry for help. GET ME OUT OF HERE.

Deb S. said...

Trucker Bob: LOL!

Shirazi said...

Because men like women, because women make them sing (read exploit) on their tune, because men let it go most of the time; honest. Let me hasten to add that it depends from man to man and there are exceptions.

Hmmm, Shirazi. You've given me something to think about. Thank you.
