So you think you've had a rough day

After having not exactly the most successful day yesterday things are back to normal. I wore different shoes to work this morning which prevented me from being zapped again. Darn you dry air.

On another note. I read that Eddie Murphy's two-week marriage is over. Okay so they only did a spiritual ceremony that was to be followed by a legal wedding but isn't that some sort of commitment too? They "remain friends" though blah blah... WTF? Alright I am kind of glad that the poor girl did not get married to that embarrassing excuse of a man. I really want to start bashing most celebrities now. Seriously what ARE THEY THINKING? I won't go into it though because it would start with Britney and where would it end and quite frankly, I got work to do.

On a different note, I watched the news this morning and OMG did they dig up funny storries. They found a 70 ft tall plant that commits suicide when it blooms. Yep. You read that right. It commits suicide.

Before you wonder how exactly it does that by thinking it is throwing itself in front of a fast moving train (no because the plant is to be found in a remote region in Madagascar) or does Harakiri also known as Seppuku, some form of Japanese ritual suicide by disembowelment (no we're still in Madagascar and swords are hard to come by in remote regions). I can assure you it is less dramatic but still weird. The plant's nutrient resources are completely exhausted after blooming, causing it to collapse and die.

That wasn't my favorite news though. An American football fan (a Green Bay Packers fan for those among you who want to know) tied up his seven-year old son for an hour because he did not want to wear the team's jersey. He then taped the jersey to the poor little fellow. ***edited*** Sure am glad that moron did not use a staplegun. Once again proof that the word fan derives from fanatic or vice versa.

Now that is what I call a hardcore fan. Much funnier is the mothers reaction. She phoned the police and had some convincing to do. She had to take pictures with her cell phone for the police to believe her. They arrived and arrested the man who was then held for three days at the county jail. And once again I say WTF???

First of all, can't she deal with that shithead father herself? If my husband would tape my child to a chair I would intervene. Well maybe only after taping the shirt to him because that was hilarious but definitely before the hour was up. Let alone would I call the police but hey that's just me.

How did they say "That'll learn him". Heheh I know it is "teach him" but this is an insider joke hinted at Killian.

I wasn't surprised at the last paragraph in that Packers story that said there had been other past domestic disputes reported! I figured there had to be *something* going on besides that! Poor kid. He's probably a Chicago Bears fan. LOL

Oh man... I had heard that Packers fans were crazy before, but that's just over the line. :P

The Packers fan sounds pretty normal to me. Hey if my kid didn't want to wear a JETS jersey I'd be helping my husband!

I heard that packers story here as we are very close to "Cheese country" and I just thought...well thank god he didn't shoot the poor kid, tape's not that bad. Seriously. lol

Steph said...

There definitely are some people in this world with issues!

Kat said...

Melisa- yeah I guess he was :)

Danielle- I'm not really into the matter but I trust your judgement *lol*

Patty -I can totally see you stapeling a JETS jersey to your kid:) Just joking

Spazzgirl - nah tape was actually pretty decent

Steph - you said it. I wouldn't even know where to begin with him.

Kat said...

Melissa - a bit too seriously for my taste but as long as nobody was hurt *lol*

Mags said... Where are you digging these things up! LOL

(Sorry I'm late today-can't getcha at work anymore)

I used to live in Wisconsin and let me confirm that Packer fans are crazy mothertruckers. I am not one of them, though. That poor kid!
