They Walk Among Us

Some guy bought a new fridge for his house. To get rid of his old fridge, he put it in his front yard and hung a sign on it saying: "Free to good home. You want it, you take it."

For three days, the fridge sat there without even one person looking twice at it.

He eventually decided that people were too un-trusting of this deal.
It looked to good to be true, so he changed the sign to read:
"Fridge for sale $50."
The next day someone stole it.

Caution... They Walk Among Us!
====================

While looking at a house, my brother asked the real estate agent which direction was north because, he explained, he didn't want the sun waking him up every morning.

She asked, "Does the sun rise in the north?"

When my brother explained that the sun rises in the east, and has for sometime, she shook her head and said, "Oh, I don't keep up with that stuff."

They Walk Among Us!!
====================

I used to work in technical support for a 24/7 call center. One day, I got a call from an individual who asked what hours the call center was open.

I told him, "The number you dialed is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week."

He responded, "Is that Eastern or Pacific time?"

Wanting to end the call quickly, I said, "Uh, Pacific."

They Walk Among Us!!!
====================

My colleague and I were eating our lunch in our cafeteria, when we overheard one of the administrative assistants talking about the sunburn she got on her weekend drive to the shore. She drove down in a convertible, but "I didn't think I'd get sunburned because the car was moving."

They Walk Among Us!!!!
====================

My sister has a lifesaving tool in her car. It's designed to cut through a seat belt if she gets trapped. She keeps it in the trunk.

They Walk Among Us!!!!!
====================

My friends and I were on a beer run and noticed that the cases were discounted 10%. Since it was a big party, we bought 2 cases.

The cashier multiplied 2 times 10% and gave us a 20% discount....

They Walk Among Us!!!!!!
====================

I was hanging out with a friend when we saw a woman with a nose ring attached to an earring by a chain.

My friend said, "Wouldn't the chain rip out every time she turned her head?"

I explained that a person's nose and ear remain the same distance apart no matter which way the head is turned.

They Walk Among Us!!!!!!!
====================

I couldn't find my luggage at the airport baggage area. So I went to the lost luggage office and told the woman there that my bags never showed up.

She smiled and told me not to worry because she was a trained professional and I was in good hands. "Now," she asked me, "has your plane arrived yet?"

They Walk Among Us!!!!!!!!
====================

While working at a pizza parlor I observed a man ordering a small pizza. He appeared to be alone, and the cook asked him if he would like it cut into
4 pieces or 6.

He thought about it for some time before responding. "Just cut it into 4 -- I
don't think I could manage 6 pieces.'

Yep, They Walk Among Us,!!!!!!!!
And REPRODUCE!!!

Etch-a-Sketch Intrigue

When I was but a wee child I always loved playing with an Etch-a-Sketch. And as I think back I was pretty good at it. I could even write my name in cursive!

So I came across these pics of Etch-a-Sketch mastery and I am humbled.

When Jack Abramoff visits WH 6 times, that 's BIG news for MSM. But then, when Yasser Arafat was 13 times at WH, that was not news.

Washington Post writer liar Walter Pincus' advice to MSM - "refuse to publish or broadcast any statements made by the President or any other government official".

NBC 590,000 viewers this season, a 6% drop. 590,000 viewers this season, a 6% drop. ABC, has lost about 875,000 viewers this season, a drop of 9.5%.

Mr. T Making a Comeback

Now here's a fellow of little talent. Not that many celebs have much talent and then they get it into their heads that they are experts on all things political.

But we are glad to see that Mr. T is making a comeback and we especially enjoy his gig on the new Comcast commercials: "Don't Be a Cultural Fool".

Below Mr. T comments on the celebrities who would visit New Orleans for the publicity. We like his attitude. Although, I don't know, an advice show with Mr. T dispensing advice? This is either a disaster in the making or sheer genius.


Mr. T I saw some, I call it `sorry celebrities.' They'll go down there and hook up with the people to take a photo-op. I said, `How disgusting.' If you're not going to go down there with a check and a hammer and a nail to help the people, don't go down there."

Mr. T, whose real name is Lawrence Tero, stars in "I Pity the Fool" debuting in October on TV Land. He dispenses advice to viewers who are struggling with life's problems.

Keith Richards' Update

Rolling Stone Keith Richards fell from a tree and the fall caused such damage that the man needed brain surgery, as covered on this Blog HERE.

Well this whole thing sounded suspicious and sure enough there is MORE to the story.

I came across this tidbit on a Gossip Google group. The quote has no attribution as to the original source but as quoted, it would seem that ole Keith had a bit of booze in him before falling out of that Palm tree.

Not that we are surprised.
After the fall Richards had to be flown to New Zealand for a brain operation.

A friend of the legendary rocker's wife, PATTI HANSEN, says, "He was legless and showing off to his bandmates.

"He feels like an idiot. But he sees the funny side now - he is the first man to have brain surgery for a hangover."

A Questionable Multiple Birth Story

Of all the luck. The lady in the story below had triplets with the help of fertility drugs. Now, SUPPOSEDLY, she has given birth to quadruplets with NO help from such drugs.

First, putting aside my reservations about the truth of the story, IF it is true, this is a human interest story of the highest order. Also, according to the story linked below, the boys of this set of quadruplets are identical twins. Really, really rare.

The reason I have my doubts is two-fold. Again, according to the link below, the chances of conceiving quadruplets without fertility pills is one in 800,000. That's almost one in a million, folks. Right here I have my doubts that a woman, admittedly once on fertility pills and having admittedly given birth to triplets because of those fertility pills, lives a scenario that seems a bit too convenient.

Also, this family lives in a one-bedroom apartment. At least that's the story told in the link below. Which makes me wonder why a family living in such small quarters, even BEFORE the quadruplets, chose to live that way. Three little babies and this family also has two older teenaged daughters. This couple knew their living situation even before they had the quadruplets and again, I wonder why they even needed fertility pills to begin with what with already having two healthy children, and I again wonder why they chanced another pregnancy, with or without the help of fertility pills. Now they will be adding four more to this one-bedroom abode and go with me here, this is damn near an unlivable situation.

Now if those two boys of the quadruplets ARE, indeed, identical twins-and the article only SUGGESTS that they may be-than fertility drugs did not cause this. Identical twins are never the result of fertility drugs but are, instead, the result of the splitting of a fertilized zygote that has the resulting offspring bearing the same genetic code.

It seems to me that this might be a scam. Surely kind Americans will take pity on this couple and help them out. Heck, I even feel sorry for them.

I am quite sure I will be bombarded with email lambasting me for daring to question this pathetic couple that nature so mistreated. Only thing, there's a whole world of people out there determined to get free money. In this era of Compassion Police, sympathy is a damn good way to get it.


Triplets then QuadrupletsLOS ANGELES - With fertility drugs, Angela Magdaleno had triplets three years ago. Last week, she had quadruplets - without fertility drugs.

Her two boys and two girls were healthy and doing well Wednesday after being born July 6 by Caesarean section in what doctors said was a rare occurrence of multiple births.

Magdaleno, 40, said she was shocked when her doctor told her she was pregnant with four babies.

    Getting Serious With Naomi

    Come on. This woman, supermodel Naomi Campbell and individual with Intermittent Explosive Disorder of the highest degree, is seriously starting to be a danger. Sure she has money to pay off her victims but perhaps it's time to put sweet Naomi in jail with some ladies who might give her a healthy dose of her own medicine.

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Supermodel Naomi Campbell, already facing court cases stemming from accusations that she assaulted two of her housekeepers, was sued on Thursday by a third employee who says the British-born beauty attacked her.

    In a one-page summons filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, Campbell's former assistant Amanda Black said she was subjected to a series of "verbal, physical and emotional attacks" by the model shortly after she was hired by her in February of 2005.

    Fantasia's Lifetime Movie

    Fantasia BarrinoFantasia
    Everyone likes a success story. And Fantasia Barrino's story is one of success to be sure. Although I'd think more of Fantasia's efforts at drama if she were to make some dramatic overture to convince young girls not to make the same mistakes she made.

    For Fantasia was one of so very many young, possibly abused, black females. They get pregnant, the "baby's Daddy" runs off, and the cycle starts again.

    As I understand it, this is more of a paean to the difficulties of single motherhood and yes, we know it's difficult. But isn't it better to avoid the entire matter BEFORE it happens? I'd love to see a modern and hip black woman take the stage and warn her sisters about the perils of single motherhood and it really is possible to just say No.

    Here's wishing Fantasia luck on this latest venture.

    Wow, Heather McCartney Takes Her Case to the Public

    I've quoted a short blurb from the article linked below but by all means, link on in because it's very apparent that Heather plans on pillorying Paul through the press.

    The article describes Heather as "depressed, worn down and humiliated". It also states that Paul stripped Heather of the privileges to which she had become accustomed to as Lady McCartney. Finally, for the PR icing, the article says that Heather had always tried to be friendly with Paul's daughter Stella. A daughter rumored to despise her Dad's second wife, the one-legged Heather.

    If this article didn't come straight from Heather McCartney's lips than I've got a bridge to sell, somewhere in Brooklyn, cheap.

    Still, it's all a hoot. Us poor peons out here in la-la land don't have to contend with such as bad PR when we toss over our poor choices of a mate. Which is what Paul did as, go on, he could have had his choice of women.

    And he chose this tartlette? Tsk, tsk.

    From the Dailymail.com:
