Q: What has 8 arms and 1 eye?
2 people in the US were married recently. I didn’t catch where, but I am willing to bet it was the Midwest (no offense). Their names are, get this: Katie Boring and Nathan Bland.
I wonder if they’ll hyphenate.
“Ladies and Gentlemen. Please welcome the bride and groom, Mr. and Mrs. Jason and Katie Boring-Bland.”
By this time I wager all the guests were asleep in their shrimp cocktail.
I was right. Independence, MO. Check it out:
Ms. Boring Becomes Mrs. Bland
From CNN’s online coverage of the simultaneous crashing of two domestic Russian passenger planes:
“First I heard a roaring noise as if a plane was driving by my house,” a witness said. “Then there were loud noises as if somebody was knocking on my window. I even went outside to check. There was nobody there so I went to bed.”
I mean, honestly!
Over the past few months, a 5′ 3″ pink bunny has been following David Bowie around, to the delight of the world’s press. The story has been reported (usually rife with errors) in news outlets in London, San Francisco, New York and other locals.
Stories almost always refer to the bunny as “him” and often imply that “he” is stalking the singer. In fact the bunny in question is a member of davidbowie.com named Isabelle_Guns. Not only that, but Bowie is well aware of this and knows who she is and that she’s not a stalker. In fact, at a January concert in Vancouver, Bowie asked for the bunny’s name and repeatedly addressed her during the show, even swapping out the word “woman” in a song, singing instead: “I’ve been waiting for a bunny to save my life.”
Additionally, most of these “press” reports mention that the bunny was on the same flight as Bowie and the band from New York (even quoting Bowie to that effect) when in fact, the flight was within Canada. Want some proof no one feels threatened by Isabelle? Dig the picture on this page of “The Bunny” with 4 of Bowie’s band members after said flight.
This is just another example of the stupid feeding frenzy the press engages in from time to time, trying to make a story out of nothing.
