  2. I think there's a good reason why oxymoron has the word moron in it! We live in such a twisted world. I love to try to wrap my mind around it.

  4. I did a post about the news, too. I like the headline about dishwashers and clean dishes.

  6. It's enough to make you shake your head, and yet I can see how some of these might actually make sense.

  7. Homicide Victims Rarely Talk to Police? That had to crack me up, I admit.

  8. Haha...those headlines are hilarious, Anita! Are they for real? This reminds me of a headline in our paper when I was around nineteen or so: "Pamlico Farmers Hear Potato Talk." I wrote a tongue-in-cheek letter to the editor asking why more people weren't informed about these talking potatoes! Imagine the possibilities, the people who would flock to our town to hear these talking potatoes! I was amazed when they actually printed my letter. I still have it somewhere. :-)
