News that make you go hmmmm

In cruising the web today I found some news stories that are out there. Here are some examples....

PET BIRD DROPS DA BOMB

Man's pet bird tells on his lady by continually saying 'I love you, Gary'. Problem is that the bird owners name is not Gary, it's Chris. Gary turns out to be his girlfriends new lover. Well ole Chris confronts the girlfriend who admits it all and leaves Chris. Now Chris has no girlfriend, but he does have a bird who keeps saying 'I love you, Gary'. So Chris ups and sells the bird. I think Chris should have given her the bird. Literally and figuratively.

NAGIN DOIN THE PAT THING

Well you can't have MLK day go by without someone saying something stupid. It seems New Orleans Mayor, Ray Nagin, wants his city to be a chocolate city again. Nagin goes on to say that "This city will be a majority African-American city. It's the way God wants it to be." I thought it was Pat Robertson's job to tell everyone what God wants to do. But Nagin takes it a step further by saying, "God is mad at America, in part because he does not approve of us being in Iraq under false pretenses. He is sending hurricane after hurricane after hurricane, and it is destroying and putting stress on this country." Nagin not only knows what God wants to do, he also knows how God wants to punish the US for, in part, being in Iraq.

HOW TO MAKE THINGS RIGHT

Note to self; never take hostages when you want to correct other problems. That's exactly how a couple of morons thought they could resolve an issue in which Robert Brower, who was one of the morons, had been convicted in a previous criminal case. It seems Brower was angry at his court-appointed attorney for failing to defend his innocence.

ISN'T THAT THE FIRST THING ON THE SAFETY LIST?

If it's not the first thing on the check list of things not to do, it should be. It seems a airline mechanic walked in front of a jet engine and was never seen again. Well, at least not in whole. Continental Airlines called the accident a "ground incident". Sounds a little more like a ground up incident to me.

I once had a bird that kept saying

"Do you love me?" I finally gave it away because it was so needy.
