News Roundup

  • From the "Quaffing for a Quid" Department - The government of Great Britain is proposing to set a minimum price for alcohol to discourage irresponsible drinking.  No longer will you be able to buy discounted drinks in the land of good beer and better whiskey.  When asked what they thought of the proposal, pub patrons in London said they couldn't comment because they were too pissed.
  • From the "Mother of the Year" Department - A woman in Washington state was arrested recently when police found a needle full of heroin in her purse during a traffic stop.  The kicker is that the police took her child to the hospital when they noticed that the youngster was lethargic.  Turns out the kid was high on second hand smoke from the heroin the female genetic donor was smoking in the car with her child in the back seat.  You know, just when I thought I couldn't be shocked, I'm taught there is no depth to human stupidity.  That's a smorgasbord of moronitude there.  First, riding around with a needle full of heroin in your purse. Second, riding around with a guy with warrants.  Third, smoking heroin in the car with your child in the back seat.  It's a trifecta of stupid!  I hope for this kid's sake his mother never sees him again.
  • From the "Rule Four" Department - A homeowner in Ohio got a bit of a surprise when a bullet came through the side of his house and landed in a bathroom sink.  It is believed that the bullet is a stray round from a shooting range that police were using that day which is about 1/2 mile away. Not exactly what I'd be expecting when I went to brush my teeth.  On the bright side, he now has a .40 sized hole in his wall for feeding cable.
  • From the "Dead Man Walking" Department - A Saudi man announced to the world that he would be divorcing his wife over the PA system at a shopping mall.  No report yet on whether his body has  been found.
