Hump Day News Round-Up

  • A husband murdered a woman by suffocating her with a ceramic decorative plate. The Franklin Mint says that previous plates used in homicides have been known to increase over 200% in value (not a guarantee).
  • Hooters Air goes tits up.
  • An armless New Zealand man was stopped for speeding. Dude, he's got no arms. Give him a break.
  • Americans' use of profanity is on the rise. Well, no shit.

I have a humorous Hooters Air story to tell when you get back to the Eastern Time Zone.

Things that I've noticed today: the local Ukrop's was playing Soul Finger, the song from Spies Like Us. Then on the way home I was passed by a Toyota Tundra with the tag "2NANAS."
Join me in a collective "NOOOOOOOOOOOO!"

jmblya- call me insensitive. the simple thought of a no-armed man speeding down the highway...while driving with one foot...scares the hell out of me. sometimes the pragmatic trumps the sentimental.

spydrz - Reminds me of the "TWOMOMS" plate I saw years ago. And is your Hooters Air story that risque that it can only be spoken in person, in hushed tones?

law fairy - Underpants!

herodotus - You, sir, are...what's the PC word for hating deformed people?

Ah, TWOMOMS. I was with you when that Grand Marquis Colony Park ("You think you hate it now, but wait till you drive it!") pulled alongside. That was a fun day.

Speaking of Grand Marquis, I wonder what Vic is up to? And why didn't they offer the "de Sade" option on that car?

jasdye - "Handi-can'ts"?

spydrz - Whatever he's doing, it's no doubt profanity-laden.
