Some good headlines this week. Been seeing some good quality coming in the last few weeks. I gotta say, the submitters have really started upping their game. My favorite three from this week:
- Printer ink tanker truck overturns. Damages estimated at seven hundred trillion dollars
- Coyote attack defeated by teenager, ACME
- Jennifer Love Hewitt (moderate stiffening) to star in TV show about prostitution (full rigidity) on Lifetime (some softening) with Cybill Sheppard (complete flaccidity)
Good work, everyone. See you next week
