What else can be said? Words that come to mind have been already expressed by millions all across America and the rest of the world upon hearing that Osama Bin Laden had been killed by Navy Seals in Pakistan. The main thought that I had a upon hearing the news was that a message has been sent all across the world that America, when provoked, will come after you and sooner or later, you will pay the price.
It's been too long since America rose like a tiger to smite a murderer and aggressor like Bin Laden. It is my sincere hope that would be terrorists around the world have gotten a distinct and clear message that we will respond to whatever aggression that is thrust on the United States. God Bless America!
A 37-year-old-woman was arrested in the Florida Keys last week after she crashed into the back of a pick-up truck. While the news of someone being arrested in the Keys is not headline news, this particular arrest was of particular interest to me since I used to spend quite a bit of time there.
No, the woman wasn't on her cellphone and she wasn't texting, either. The Florida Highway Patrol says the woman was driving while shaving, uh....driving while shaving her....uh, "bikini area." Well, that's what the cops called it.
Florida Highway Patrol officers said that the ex-husband was actually doing the steering -- from the passenger seat, of course. Officers said they determined that in addition to this bit of "landscaping" behind the wheel, the woman was already driving with a suspended license, just one day after she was convicted of driving under the influence.
The woman and her ex-husband reportedly drove another half-mile before being pulled over. The officer explained, "She said she was meeting her boyfriend in Key West and wanted to be ready for the visit." Hah! I knew there was a logical explanation.
Although the name and photo of the woman was released by CBS affiliate WFOR, I don't feel it will serve any real purpose to display it. I can tell you that, back in the day, the motto in the Keys was "Go ugly, early." Roughly translated, it means there are many beautiful people in the Keys, but most are either with partners or are quickly taken up. If you haven't found yourself an ugly one early, chances are you'll end up by yourself.
As an afterthought, you, yourself, may be the one that has been chosen under the "Go ugly, early" theme.

Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) The reason that it's so hard for women to find men that are sensitive, caring, and good-looking is because those men already have boyfriends. 2) I read recipes the same way I read science fiction. I get to the end and I think, "Well, that's not going to happen." 3) Impotence is nature's way of saying "No hard feelings". 4) I once saw six men kicking and punching my mother-in-law. My neighbor said, "Are you going to help?" I said "No, six should be enough." 5) Alcohol doesn't solve any problems...but then again, neither does milk.....and that's five!

The week may start well, but fall into sharp decline later on Saturday.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: My thanks to my pal Pat in the U.K. for her contribution to today's stories.
A young mother paying a visit to a doctor friend and his wife made no attempt to restrain her five-year-old son, who was ransacking an adjoining room. But finally, an extra loud clatter of bottles did prompt her to say, "Doctor, I hope you don't mind Johnny being in there." The doctor calmly replied, "No, he'll quiet down when he gets to the poisons."
A woman went to her doctor for a follow-up visit after the doctor had prescribed testosterone for her. She was a little worried about some of the side effects she was experiencing and said, "Doctor, the hormones you've been giving me have really helped, but I'm afraid that you're giving me too much. I've started growing hair in places that I've never grown hair before."
The doctor reassured her, "A little hair growth is a perfectly normal side effect of testosterone. Just where has this hair appeared?" The lady replied, "On my balls, which is something else I want to talk to you about."
A plastic surgeon invented a radical new face lift procedure and was explaining it to a prospective patient. He told her, "I'll install a special screw in the top of your skull. Your hair will cover it so it will be unnoticed. Whenever you need a little tuck, we'll just tighten the screw a little and the wrinkles will disappear!"
The woman was enthused and told the doctor to go ahead with it. The surgery was a resounding success, and the woman went home happy. A few months later, the woman returned in a great state of agitation. She pointed to her face and said, "Just look at these bags under my eyes!" The surgeon looked at her closely and said, "Those aren't bags under your eyes, they're your tits and if you keep messing around with that screw, pretty soon you're going to have a goatee!"
That's it for today, my little munchkins. Remember, a positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort. More on Wednesday.
