You know, that's one of those things you wonder without ever thinking about it. I guess I know now.

This reminded me of one of the funniest moments in TV history when Chuckles the Clown was dressed as a peanut then went to the sweet by and by. I laughed so hard I thought my pants would never dry...

plus the headline is a Calvin&Hobbes rip-off.

No matter, RoastBeef. Headline of the Month candidate. Guess the snow must be done to 20 feet high in Traverse City so now folks can head South.

To sum up her resume in six words or less:

Weezy Dworski, she sees dead people.

Kudos for correct use of [ironic] tag.

Ironic like an old man that turned 98, won the lottery and died the next day

Usage Note: The words ironic, irony, and ironically are sometimes used of events and circumstances that might better be described as simply "coincidental" or "improbable," in that they suggest no particular lessons about human vanity or folly. Thus 78 percent of the Usage Panel rejects the use of ironically in the sentence In 1969 Susie moved from Ithaca to California where she met her husband-to-be, who, ironically, also came from upstate New York. Some Panelists noted that this particular usage might be acceptable if Susie had in fact moved to California in order to find a husband, in which case the story could be taken as exemplifying the folly of supposing that we can know what fate has in store for us. By contrast, 73 percent accepted the sentence Ironically, even as the government was fulminating against American policy, American jeans and videocassettes were the hottest items in the stalls of the market, where the incongruity can be seen as an example of human inconsistency.

The obituary writer for a small newspaper is moving to Ohio.

Possibly the least Fark-worthy post I have ever seen.

I thought the banner of "Northwest Lower Michigian's Newspaper" was pathetic.

Run, Louise Dworski, RUN!
