Ripping the Headlines Today, 1/10/2014

Making fun of the headlines today, so you don’t have to

The news doesn’t need to be complicated and confusing; that’s what any new release from Microsoft is for.  And, as in the case with anything from Microsoft, let’s not worry our pretty little heads over the news: remember, something new and equally indecipherable will come out soon.

Really all you need to do is follow one simple rule:  barely pay attention and jump to conclusions.  So, here are some headlines today and my first thoughts:

Ripping the Headlines

Who let the dogs out? Me. Me.

Dennis Rodman sings Happy Birthday to Kim Jong Un

Jong Un sings “Who Let the Dogs Out?”  What a kidder.

Macy’s announces job cuts

Then who’s the salesperson going to being talking to instead of helping me…

Winter tires could pose health problems

Especially if you wind up under them…

Mitt Romney is being sued in Federal Court for Criminal Racketeering

Can’t wait for the musical version — The Cooked Books of Mormon.

Wal-Mart recalls donkey meat

Saying customers deserve best quality horse.

Denver gives out recreational pot sales licenses

Bringing new meaning to Denver being “The Mile High City.”

Cracker Barrel puts ‘Duck Dynasty’ items back on shelves

Putting the Cracker in Cracker Barrel.

  • one of the smartest and funniest minds I’ve ever known..seen or heard about..Paul rocks.

  • Irony

    Elegant, refreshing mind. Makes the news palpable. Sherry Tarantino brought Paul Lander to my attention and I am grateful. When my mind is overwhelmed with the intolerable he brings me back to stable chaos.
