Rape Joke On O'Reilly

Yea, and a woman says it too? I am not shocked it was on O'Reilly, but a woman???

Pub Ordered To Change Bathroom Signs

Yea, I like jokes just as much as the next guy, but when kids get confused I tend to draw a line. From the Indy Star:
DESTIN, Fla. (AP) -- Confusing signs on the bathroom doors at McGuire's Irish Pub have played jokes on customers for years, sending women to the men's room and vice versa.

But the father of a girl who was interrupted by a man in the women's room and Florida's Department of Business and Professional Regulation don't find the signs funny.

The agency recently threatened the Panhandle tourist landmark with closure for "Lack of signage properly designating bathrooms."
Here are the signs in question.
The state took action after the father filed a complaint, which said his 15-year-old daughter was embarrassed and left the restaurant crying after the bathroom incident.

General Manager Billy Martin has removed the signs at his Destin pub, but left them at his original pub in Pensacola.

"We're not trying to be malicious," Martin told the Northwest Florida Daily News. "It's an Irish joke kind of thing."
I would be fine with the signs if it were just adults getting confused (it would be hilarious,) but I don't like the idea of kids getting confused and being the butt of jokes. Sorry, bad pun.

Restaurants Feel Pinch From Pump

Money only goes so far, so high gas prices are hurting some businesses. From Fox 28:
As gas prices continue to rise, more people are looking for ways to save some cash. It appears that in addition to limiting how much they drive, people are not eating out as much.

One restaurant in Elkhart is starting to feel the pinch.

Peggy Flora, Manager at Callahan's says, "Maybe 10 to 20 percent right now, if it continues going up, it's going to be more."

According to Flora, that's how much business has dropped since gas prices started going up.

Gas prices in Michiana are ranging between $3.30 and $3.40 a gallon which means people are looking for ways to save.
Well it is only expected people to stop spending for extras when they have to break the bank for high gas prices. I really want a Prius!

Well It Is Clean Now

That Doesn't Look Good

You Can't Outrun The Cops

Another dumb criminal... who thought he could speed his way out of a ticket. From the Indystar:
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) -- Police said a motorcyclist led them on an interstate highway chase at speeds of up to 150 mph and left them in the dust. But they had the cycle's license number and cited Ryan Lewis, 19, of Eugene after going to his home and finding the motorcycle hidden behind his house.

Oregon State Police Capt. Calvin Curths said he was in an unmarked car in a construction zone on Interstate 5 Monday evening when the motorcycle sped past him. He said he measured the speed at 72 mph in a 50-mph zone, accelerating to as much as 150 mph before police gave up the chase.

Lewis was cited for reckless driving and eluding an officer.
Remember kiddies: don't drink and drive, don't speed, and don't try to out run the cops.

I loved this movie as a kid, the Goonies!
Francis Fratelli: Tell us everything! Everything!

: Everything. OK! I'll talk! In third grade, I cheated on my history exam. In fourth grade, I stole my uncle Max's toupee and I glued it on my face when I was Moses in my Hebrew School play. In fifth grade, I knocked my sister Edie down the stairs and I blamed it on the dog... When my mom sent me to the summer camp for fat kids and then they served lunch I got nuts and I pigged out and they kicked me out... But the worst thing I ever done - I mixed a pot of fake puke at home and then I went to this movie theater, hid the puke in my jacket, climbed up to the balcony and then, t-t-then, I made a noise like this: hua-hua-hua-huaaaaaaa - and then I dumped it over the side, all over the people in the audience. And then, this was horrible, all the people started getting sick and throwing up all over each other. I never felt so bad in my entire life.

Time for some horror... from a classic horror movie. Night of the Living Dead from 1968 is a lot different from the recent remakes, and I kinda like this style better.
It has been established that persons who have recently died have been returning to life and committing acts of murder. A widespread investigation of funeral homes, morgues, and hospitals has concluded that the unburied dead have been returning to life and seeking human victims. It's hard for us here to be reporting this to you, but it does seem to be a fact.

Feministing On The Colbert Report

I am not only jealous of Jessica Valenti because she can write books and I can't... but now she is going to be on the Colbert Report! From Feministing:
Ever since Jane Fonda and Gloria Steinem gave Stephen Colbert a little "ice cream threeway", feminists have had a special place in their heart for Colbert. And now a new blog, Feminists for Colbert, makes it official.

And since it seems a bit serendipitous that the shirts featured on so much of the blog share a name with my book, I figured this would be a good time to mention that I'll actually be on The Colbert Report on June 5. (Giving me just enough to build up a puke-inducing amount of nervousness.)

So get your beer and popcorn ready for that show! Congrats Jessica!!!

Why You Shouldn't Buy Fast Food With A Credit Card

Actually, I have 8,648 reasons... here is the tale from a South Carolina Burger King. From Click2Houston.com:
FOUNTAIN INN, S.C. -- A Burger King restaurant made a king-size mistake that has caused a royal headache for a South Carolina woman.

A restaurant worker accidentally charged her more than $8,000 for a meal, reported WYFF-TV in Greenville, S.C.

Now the restaurant is trying to correct the error.

The mistake happened at a Burger King location in Fountain Inn, S.C., on Thursday of last week.

Guadalupe Pequino bought $8.64 worth of food at the drive-in window and paid with her Visa check card, issued by Bank of America.

Because the total was entered twice, Pequino's receipt showed she was charged $8,648.64.
The really sad part of the story is that the fries were cold...

Dumb Indiana Criminal Found At Scene Of The Crime

Oh this guy is a real winner... from WSBT TV:
A man found trapped unconscious beneath a 1,000-pound tombstone in a cemetery faces charges and might have to pay for damages, police said.

Michael David Schreiber, 22, has both legs broken beneath the stone, Merrillville Officer Ray Smith said. The Merrillville man faces charges of criminal trespassing, criminal mischief and public intoxication, police said.
Wow, alcohol was involved... isn't that shocking??? I bet money that before the accident he said, "Hey Watch This!"
His condition was not immediately available Tuesday morning, a nursing supervisor at Methodist Hospitals said.

It took five officers to remove the headstone from Schreiber's body Sunday morning at Calumet Park Cemetery in the northwestern Indiana town, Smith said. The family name at the top of the headstone left its mark on the suspect.

"The letter V left an imprint on Schreiber's thigh," Smith said.

Besides facing criminal charges, Schreiber may be ordered to pay for damage to 14 headstones, Police Chief Nicholas Bravos said. Estimated damage totaled about $8,400, Bravos said.

Schreiber told police he and a companion had been drinking before going to the cemetery.

He estimated he had been trapped under the headstone for more than three hours before police arrived, Bravos said.

News For MST3K Fans

Mike Nelson of Mystery Science Theater 3000 fame is bringing the funny to movies again! Check this out from the NY Times:
WHEN “Mystery Science Theater 3000” was canceled after 11 seasons in 1999, 146 distraught fans bought a full-page advertisement in Daily Variety urging another network to continue the show. But the series was not revived, and today devotees cannot even tune in to reruns because its premise — a host and his two robot pals mock B movies — required securing those movies’ broadcast rights, which expired after the show’s demise.

But those self-described “Misties” are welcoming a resurrection of sorts. Mike Nelson, the show’s longtime host and head writer, has begun a new venture called RiffTrax, and he can now skewer virtually any movie without infringing on copyrights. Recordings of him talking back at movies can be downloaded (for fees ranging from 99 cents to $3.99) from rifftrax.com. Start playing the DVD or VHS version of the movie and Mr. Nelson’s commentary simultaneously, and the effect is that of a director commenting on a DVD — except that Mr. Nelson is inclined to say, as he does during a scene in “Star Trek V: The Final Frontier” in which William Shatner climbs a mountain, “He’s actually trying to scale his own ego.”

So far there are more than 30 RiffTrax episodes, including “The Matrix” and “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring,” with Mr. Nelson adding three or four more titles every month. He said in a phone interview from San Diego, where he lives, that “hundreds of thousands” of the files have been purchased for download so far. (A spokesman for Legend Films, which produces RiffTrax, declined to clarify or confirm Mr. Nelson’s claim, saying the company considers sales figures proprietary.)
This looks very promising!

Gas Hitting Highs In South Bend

Yea, gas prices suck. From WSBT TV:
Drivers are experiencing sticker shock at the pump. Gas prices have topped $3 per gallon at many places. One expert thinks he knows what might bring those prices back down.

“It hurts, it hurts. I stay home a lot,” exclaimed driver Glenda Shelley.

The highest recorded price by AAA for regular unleaded gas in Indiana stands at $3.19. It’s the same price we found at most gas stations in South Bend Thursday.

“The gas prices are too high,” added driver Ben Swanson.

Experts say gas prices usually increase this time of year. Due to environmental regulations, it's the time when gas companies switch from their winter to their summer blends.
Don't expect much to change this summer, because $4 gas was predicted by Bloomberg.


My Worst Nightmare

Seriously, this creeps me out beyond words. From Yahoo News:
These guys weren't exactly Snap, Crackle and Pop. What began as a faint popping in a 9-year-old boy's ear — "like Rice Krispies" — ended up as an earache, and the doctor's diagnosis was that a pair of spiders made a home in the ear.

"They were walking on my eardrums," Jesse Courtney said.
I may never sleep again...
One of the spiders was still alive after the doctor flushed the fourth-grader's left ear canal. His mother, Diane Courtney, said her son insisted he kept hearing a faint popping in his ear — "like Rice Krispies."

Dr. David Irvine said it looked like the boy had something in his ear when he examined him.

When he irrigated the ear, the first spider came out, dead. The other spider took a second dousing before it emerged, still alive. Both were about the size of a pencil eraser.

Jesse was given the spiders — now both dead — as a souvenir. He has taken them to school and his mother has taken them to work.

"It was real interesting, 'cause, two spiders in my ear — what next?" Jesse said.
It would be an understatement to say that I hate spiders. I am getting earplugs to wear to bed now.

Cat Determined To Take Trip

This little furry friend would not be left behind... from Yahoo News:
OTTAWA (AFP) - An adventurous tabby took an unexpected trip this week, after slyly crawling into her keeper's luggage and clearing lax Canadian airport security, local media said Wednesday.

Mary Martell unwittingly traveled 1,400 kilometers (870 miles) from Saint John Airport on Canada's Atlantic coast all the way to Toronto, then to Niagara-on-the-Lake by car with the live cat in her suitcase.

She told public broadcaster CBC the bag was scanned at the airport, but she was not stopped and it was eventually loaded into the airplane's cargo bay.
Martell said she only discovered Ginger, the family pet, when she opened her luggage in a hotel room, after the three-hour journey. The cat had apparently snuck into a bag while Martell was packing.
A Hat Tip to Fark.
