Obey the news

Okay, maybe there isn't a ban on Vegemite after all. It's as hard to keep track of as whether eggs are good or bad for you.

A Tupperware art contest. I guess the Tupperware parties of old just weren't exciting enough.

She was probably passing the driving test before she crashed into the license branch. I'm surprised she didn't pass, actually... it's Indiana.

It sounds like a children's story: Krazy George invents the Wave. I'm not sure I can bring myself to care.

Woman whacks thief with cooking pot. Inspired by Dead Rising, I'm sure - she put down the knife and grabbed the pot instead. It's a shame she didn't have a foam Mega Buster around. Also, the thief stole a cell phone from one of the arresting officers.

Talking police officer toy says something that sounds like the F-word. Aw, heck... we're all adults here except for the kids, right? Talking police officer toy says something that sounds like "fuck". It could be a defective voice chip, or the recorders playing around (as they always seem to do) and making an obscene chip that ends up in a toy, or just a regional accent sounding funny. It reminds me of "Heroes" where the Japanese guys were shouting "Shitteiru?" across the restaurant, and I wondered why nobody got upset at what sounds to English ears like swearing.

Shopkeeper angry at (legal) parking job forklifts the car out of the way. I assume he hasn't watched the German Forklift Safety Video.

Man paints bridge pink to promote breast cancer awareness. But does he know what a mastectomy is?

A school closes for a suspected bomb that turns out to be spoiled milk. My old high school has closed - what is it now, four times in the past three weeks for bomb threats? While I was still there, it was the fire alarm. How times have changed.

Woman hires her grandson for arson. Now THAT'S evil. I imagine the landlord had a pretty good reason for evicting her.

Makes me think of Banjo Kazooie. Rareware actually had to create an FAQ where they included that the flower pots in the spooky world were saying "THAAAANK YOU" in a strong English accent, NOT "Fuuuuuck you" as some people thought (myself included ;) )

"Stop, I don't want to have to pull out my nightstick."

I bet you don't! :D

awwwwww! I mean, he should have gotten permission, but still... awwwwww! (Breast Cancer research and awareness is one of the few causes out there that I'm a big supporter of, due to my mom's history)

People hear what they want to hear. Hearing obscenities where there are none is a sign of either a dirty mind or a desire to find things wrong with the universe.

So are there still people out there who haven't heard of breast cancer? All we really need to do is have Harry Potter mention it somewhere and we can remedy that problem immediately.

Yup. I have a dirty dirty mind ;)

And it's not so much that there are people who haven't heard of it, but there are some people who still have the mindset of, "It can't happen to me..." or people who think it's dirty to talk about such a thing. My mom has run into so many women who had breast cancer, but refused to talk about it and get support for what they were going through, almost acting as though it was a punishment for a sin or something :/

I suppose 'breast cancer research and support' would be a better phrase for it. The most inspiring part of Race for the Cure was seeing a sea of people wearing pink hats (each pink hat representing a breast cancer survivor).

Yes, I'm THAT Nidoking. Sometimes I write fanfiction... often I waste all my time playing video games and watching anime. But it's not a waste if I enjoy it, right? I can quote from a movie, video game, anime series, or British comedy apropos of just about any situation, and one of my main goals in life is to entertain people. (The other big one is amassing as much anime and manga as I can... see below for a progress report.) That's me in a nutshell. ("Help! I'm trapped in a nutshell! What a bloody great nutshell this is!")
