Too funny!  Thanks for sharing with us.  Sometimes I cannot believe what gets in print.

Funny stuff in the paper!  My son collects the "off" articles.

"cops drop flatulence charge"

"Fish knocks boy unconcious"

"Bear steals Sandwich"

they seem to come in spurts, makes me wonder about the media

Those are great stories.  Makes you wonder who edits what is being printed.

In light of the recent caulk and duct tape blogs, I offer: Red Tape Holds Up New Bridges (You mean there's something stronger than duct tape?) my Favorite Award.

But they all gave me a great laugh. You made my morning. Kate Ford

Hi Terry: I am sorry to say that I agree with that statement.

Hi Tina: I learned that lesson last year - don't believe everything that gets printed!

Hi Kathleen: I am glad you enjoyed them.

Hi Roberts: Those sound pretty odd.

Hi Richard: You mean if it is being edited?

Hi Kate: Your welcome

Hi Al and Peggy: I'm gonna try!

These go with my favorite laugh-out-loud calendar, the 365 Stupidest Things.  Today's:

Sign outside Jim's Fruit and Produce, Belle Plain, MN:

TODAY'S FEATURE: APPLES THE SIZE OF GARBANZO BEANS

From an eBay auction: "Exorciser Equipment"

On a Radisson Hotel sign: "RADISSON WELCOMES EMERGING INFECTIOUS DISEASES"

You get the idea :)  :)  :)
