Important News Items

I couldn't sleep this morning...woke up at like 630AM completely wide awake. So I spent some time online reading some news stories, catching up on blogs and watching BBC Breakfast. There is some really useless news out there.

  1. The story about the plane that had to land because the passenger lit a match to cover the smell of their flatulence just hit the news here.
  2. Then there's this little gem. Poor Indian men.
  3. In Health, they're stating the obvious...people can be thin and unhealthy! They're FAT ON THE INSIDE! In other news, too much marijuana smoking can hurt kids brains.
  4. I've talked about the propensity for drunken stupidity and violence from YOBs and the male population of the UK. Now they're finding the girls are boozing it up and itching for a smackdown, too. (This is on the tale of the news that the lasses are also getting freakishly pissed a bit more than they should.) Ah, the realities of England. They'll make even the biggest anglophile get some perspective.
  5. Then there's this lovely little tidbit. Who thought blackface would make a comeback?
  6. And prisoners don't like Santa.
  7. There's a serial killer in Suffolk who's out there killing prostitutes. This story gave us the trivia that the five groups preyed upon by serial killers in England are prostitutes, the elderly, children, young adults who've just left home, and the homeless. I'm safe for now.
  8. Mariah Carey has found a new problem.
  9. Mel Gibson found another ethnic group to offend.
  10. But he empathises with Michael Richards.

No need for fark. 15 minutes on bbc.co.uk. The brits like these kind of stories.

A-OK. Every one of those was on Fark last week. If you had found them there, you might have found some funnier commentary. But maybe you like the straight news.

Yeah, well I think Mel Gibson may one day meet his match. I'll admit I'm interested in seeing this Mayan movie but I'll wait a while so as not to boost his box office standings.

I will admit, Fark is usually funnier.

I agree with you, CP. Mel Gibson will one day be sucked into the centre of the earth, called home by the devil that spawned him.
