I’ve got some really important news I can’t BELIEVE
Bruce and Roger haven’t mentioned yet:
1. And here I thought those colored rubber bands for braces were cool Bling bling
. Clearly this is something on which people should spend their money. Forget sending your children to college, helping the poor or donating to your favorite charity. What society really needs are diamond-encrusted teeth. Especially the ones that spin. 2. I’m French! Why do you think I have this outrageous accent?
As it turns out, the French are the international equivalent of the kids picked last for kickball
. That’s okay, they can go drown their sorrows in delicious pastries.
2. Yet another reason why Bill Joel’s song sucksPiano man found but not identified
. I learned about this one from three different friends who felt the need to email the story to me despite the fact that I neither a) play the piano b) have strong opinions or emotions about the mentally disturbed or c) like Billy Joel.3. Who says that fame and fortune can’t get you anywhere?
Alicia Keys is writing a fictionalized account of her life
based on her journal entries and has a series of young adult novels in the works. What I don’t understand is…if American’s don’t read…why are all these crappy books getting published? Didn’t we learn anything
from Jewel’s book of bad poetry?4. Morse Code Is Gr8
A 93-year-old telegraph operator easily beat
a 13-year-old girl skilled at text message shorthand. This is quite possibly the best story ever, but not because Morse code won. It’s the best story because a 93-year-old man was forced to translate the sentence: “Hey, girlfriend, you can text all your best pals to tell them where you are going and what you are wearing.” 5. Embryo? No, Ubryo!
Also, just to prove that I’m not a total hard news junkie, I do occasionally enjoy the lighter side of the media, such as this lovely ditty
about stem-cells and bioethics.
