You trying to tell us something?
 
2009-06-08 02:57:03 PM
I kinda like prostate exams.
 
2009-06-08 02:57:34 PM
I got two headlines this week? Wowser.

Whamdangler: I kinda like prostate exams.

Well, I like 'em better than I suspect I would like prostate cancer.
 
2009-06-08 02:58:43 PM
Too many to choose from!

I guess I'll go with Cheney/Pelosi, though.

Solid batch of headlines this week.
 
2009-06-08 03:17:37 PM
Too bad this one didn't get turned loose in the general population:

10 year old girl battles breast cancer, tries to stay perky
 
2009-06-08 03:24:57 PM
I still love the Osirisly headline. I laughed for a good two minutes at work with that one.
 
2009-06-08 03:31:10 PM
How I missed the "topless coffee shop burned down due to arson" followup I'll never know. When I read the original story, it was at 3am and I was suffering from insomnia. Part of me at that point was pondering the expenses of driving there just to see the novelty. However, on the other hand, DragonCon has more interesting sights

My favorite is still the rabbit one. I chortled heartily when I first read it.
 
2009-06-08 03:32:11 PM
You picked a fine time to leave me loose wheel


Just as the Yankees get their Wang fixed, the Mets break their Putz


Both got good hardy chuckles out of me.

Oh... and the toner one. Classic. "Will be shaken and re-inserted to work a few more days."
 
2009-06-08 03:35:15 PM

Unfreakable

just a personal opinion but I really think the "Hung Fu" headline for Carradine should have been greened - wasnt too tasteless. couldve easily made it in this list too

Yeah, I can see that. It's a balancing act sometimes, that one just didn't make it. Made me laugh, though

"Sitting." I am "sitting" in my chair. Not sure how one sites in a chair, anyway.

Dammit.
