  1. Headlines can be so amusing -- it's one of my favorite segments on the rare occasion I watch Jay Leno. Some make you wonder if the writer/editor stopped to actually think about how their words sound. My T13

  4. Cranial disengagement at its best.

  5. I like 10. (Must be the season's red swag sneaking up on me turning me into a temporary romantic.)

  6. Does number twelve count as irony? I'm not sure anymore. (Curse you, Alanis!!!)

  7. LOL! Actually, it makes total sense that hackers would hack into an online meeting about them.

  8. #1 is my favorite. It set the stage. I love this sort of thing. It reminds me of the Talking Heads song: Stop Making Sense!

  11. Sometimes I see those kind of things in the paper and I have to wonder if there is a proofreader or editor working there.

  14. Is #2 based on the actual radio interview with the woman who called in about the deer sign in a high traffic area? That was HILARIOUS! It's amazing how oblivious people can truly be. LOL! Have a great weekend!
