I never woulda guessed!
2002-05-24 07:16:26 PM  
Shouldn't this be a [image from too old to be available]?
2002-05-24 07:16:46 PM  
This reminds me of the warnings every year to not leave children or pets in cars in the summer, and every year dumbasses do and they die. Some people are just too stupid and there is nothing anyone can do about it.

My cat's breath smells like cat food

Clicking NSFW from work could get you fired
2002-05-24 07:21:13 PM

2002-05-24 07:25:42 PM  
You know, rock and roll can lead lead to meeting people with similar intrests.

And finally tonight our fashion reporter will tell kids out there how to properly wear a thong. All that and more coming up tonight at 11! Please join us..PLEEEEEZEE!"

No, the most obivous was: Driving accidents less when roads shut down for work.
2002-05-24 07:36:53 PM  

My dogs balls smell like your breath.
2002-05-24 07:38:38 PM  
The sun can give you a sunburn !

Wow, the guy who runs is a nerd and a retard.
2002-05-24 07:42:22 PM  
Things like this really make me appreciate the vast number of oblivious people in our society... These are the folks they make warnings on cigarette lighters for.
2002-05-24 07:45:01 PM  
The banscrewdrivers site is also obvious satire.
2002-05-24 08:00:40 PM  
Well if he thinks a phillips head is dangerous, then he has never seen a reed and prince.

They have been banned in america, thank god.

Oh, sorry, were we discussing swimming pools?

I have to go home now.

I dunno, my recent fave is still "Paul McCartney says Beatles Took Drugs" posted here about a month ago.

Forrest Green is a stupid crayon.

What is the next headline

Guns shot at people brings risk of death"
2002-05-24 09:14:20 PM  
This sounds like a Dan Quayle-ism.

"If we don't succeed, we run the risk of failure."
2002-05-24 09:21:08 PM  
Puking - Nice and minty, huh?
2002-05-24 10:07:59 PM  
There was a Yahoo headline last week:

"Study: Falling Asleep At The Wheel Increases the Likelihood of an Accident"

or something like that...
2002-05-24 10:30:26 PM  

In other news...

Murderers responsible for most deaths by killing.

2002-05-24 10:36:12 PM  

Ok, what the...

They advise keeping a cordless phone near the pool and bathtub.

After THAT article, they recommend THIS?!

2002-05-24 10:43:40 PM  
I think I'm going to have to sue Yahoo for the heart attack they gave me with that article, who would of known!
2002-05-24 11:11:45 PM  
"Your chances of reading a stupid news story doubles when visiting, say leading Scientologists"
2002-05-24 11:23:16 PM  
Dunno bout anyone else...but the ad on the page when I pull it up is for some vacation planning thingie...and I'll be damned if the 2 snorkling peeps in the pic don't look like they're doin' the dead man's float. Brilliant choice there Yahoo!

"Doctors at Children's Hospital said that they see dozens of near-drowning cases each year. It can happen in pools and ponds, but about one-third happen in bathtubs, buckets and even toilets"

I'm sorry, but if you find a way to drown in the toilet then the earth is better off without you.
2002-05-24 11:47:21 PM  
Or a bucket. Who the fark nearly drowns in a BUCKET?!
2002-05-25 12:25:37 AM  
In other news, food experts agree that not eating can cause starvation. Also not drinking water can cause dehydration. More news at 11:00, the hour after 10:00.

Livewire: My mom is a nurse at an ER in Knoxville. She was to have taken care an infant who tried to climb into a large (5 or 10 gallon) bucket. Unfortunately the child succumbed to his injury.

SmKid: Very good. The thong was a nice touch!!!! :-)
2002-05-25 02:14:18 AM  
Allivymar: I saw that ad too! And I was so struck by it I made a note of the image URL.
2002-05-25 05:40:54 AM  
ha! still can't hold a candle to my own prestigious local paper which saw fit to run the rather informative headline of 'Opinions Vary'
2002-05-25 06:02:38 AM  
Ladies and Germs, we have a new winner...
2002-05-25 08:14:15 PM  
Not quite the same thing, but the most boring headline has got to be: "Canadian business initiative"...
