Wow, it's been a while since I've posted anything for no one to read. And now I have nothing to say!

From News of the Weird

Weird on several levels:

Holy matrimony: (1) In February in Pattaya, Thailand, the woman who was the former Guinness Book recordholder for living in a cage with scorpions was married to the man who holds the equivalent record for time spent with centipedes, with consummation immediately afterward in a coffin. (Kanchana Ketkaew had stayed 32 days with 3,400 scorpions and Bunthawee Siengwong 28 days with 1,000 centipedes.) (2) After Ms. Sohela Ansari told friends in their village in West Bengal state in India that her husband had mumbled ''talaq, talaq, talaq'' in his sleep, word got to local Muslim authorities, who declared the couple divorced. (A Muslim husband may obtain a divorce merely by the utterance, and the West Bengal clerics ruled that he need not be awake at the time.)

Scorpion woman and centipede man divorce? That's news!
That's like Batman and Robin breaking up. Or Spiderman and ????

Hey Tom, Who Cares?

Last night while musing at Scarborough Country - another fake news show with a tighten your beltway former politician - Chris Mathews came on with this breaking news: Tom DeLay will resign from the Senate and will not seek re-election to the Senate.
Oh my gawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwd!

Are you kidding? This is breaking news! This is, like, end of the world stuff. This is NOT BREAKING NEWS!

First, DeLay was getting mudslinged by all sides and was having trouble raising campaign money because his Sugar Daddy is about to throw him in front of the bus.

Second, DeLay is an idiot, and even the Ditto-Idiots (or the Ididiots) in Texas finally figured that out. ("Ma, I'm thinkin' that feller is not right in the hay-ed."

Third, let's not forget that DeLay drew up the Congressional district for which he was to seek re-election. But forgot about that little thing called supporters. Damn citizens!

So, what's so breaking about this news? Nothing.

And that's what's so breaking about this news.
