Ripping 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, to keep the news from worrying our pretty little heads over, remember something new and equally indecipherable will come out soon.

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

Ripping the HeadlinesWhatever happened to Anthony Weiner?

I’m betting Joey Chestnut ate him.

Is Kobe Bryant fat?

A better headline would have been, “Is Kobe Beefy?”

Now we’re talking literally cooking the books.

He did, however, add that US shirts and pants seem to hold their value.
