Really News

Ok, just some short fill ins for the bulk of the day. There's something special coming later in the evening so I'm just going to do some more of those news blurbs I love to make fun of that come from Yahoo. I saw these a couple of days ago and one is already over...doesn't make it any less fun to make fun of though...

Meanwhile, I'll work on your suggestions. They're all good...except the ones I have trouble with and then...well...you suck! Why would you give me something I have trouble with? Look for these next week.

On to the lame filler post...

Another elimination from ‘Dancing with the Stars’

Really? Who would have thunk? Isn’t that the point of the show? You never see a new blurb that says ‘Surprise couple added to Dancing with the Stars’. If this show keeps going, they’re eventually going to run out of B rate stars, C rate stars, D rate stars, etc. It’s going to play out like the Dr. Suess’ Cat in the Hat I fear where they’ll go all the way through Z rate actors and then have to use VOOM to clean up the entire mess.

Madonna to build girls’ school in Malawi

Really? You mean she has an international construction license and she’ll be doing dry wall work and tile installation? I knew she was the material girl but I didn’t think that meant construction material. Maybe she can sign some of her old coffee table books on the way.

Grim Brazilian drama opens Cannes film festival

Really? You mean like the girl from Ipanema is back and she is not looking so young these days but still thinks she is? Yes, that would be a grim drama.

Vatican: It’s OK to believe in aliens

Really? Does that mean I must now believe that the Ark held all 6 bazillion animal species as well? Is Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster next in line for believability?

Hey man, I’ll let you insult my political beliefs but I WILL NOT stand by while you make funny of my religion visa-vie implying aliens do not exist!

One day they will come back and re-inhabit the Earth! At least, that’s what Tom Cruise says.


I'll kick you.

Bee said...

That rant?
It was supposed to say *MAKE FUN* not *make funny*.

Bee said...

Is there a cap on how many comments I can leave on one post? Cuz if not, I’m stuffing the comment box baby!

(Any resemblance to comments made to/by me in High School, strictly coincidental)

VE said...

bee - Ha! Make funny... Tom Cruise makes funny of himself all the time! Now if you'll excuse me I have to go to the bathroom and make a funny... ;)

Thank GOD that the Vatican has told me what I can and can't believe in. Next time I see the Pope his lil popemobile may have some slashed tires. Watch your back your Popeness.

VE said...

sornie - Yeah, isn't that one great? I'm sure the Pope is far wiser on matters of spirituality than us common folk. I'm gonna start having him do my financial investments too!

Vatican: It’s OK to believe in aliens...
because, let's face it, if you believe the crap we say, you will believe anything...

VE said...

kan - I should have known to not throw in a religious bone for you to go after...hahaha

Here's my theory on the ark thing...
Since world travel and any meaningful animal species inventory was minimal in the Old Testament days, it was unlikely Noah even knew about more than just a few species of animals - most notably the ones that lived in his region. Therefore, in his world view, "all" the animals in the world only consisted of about a few hundred different species, thus making the idea of putting them all in a single ark very feasible.

No, really.

Kanrei said...

Sorry. Reflex. I can't help myself, but I am trying to learn control.

VE said...

jeff - So that implies that since Noah couldn't see very far his "world" was probably just a local flood plain issue and not the entire world that he saved them from... No, really.

kan - Ok, but three strikes and you're OUT!!!!

Serena Joy said...

Hey, come on, now -- I believe in Nessie AND Big Foot. Aliens, too. Why, I know more aliens than I can shake a stick at. I don't know what the Vatican would make of them, but that's their problem.:-)

Jeff said...

That makes about as much sense as anything. The "saving the world" thing probably was an exaggeration, you know, like a game of telephone tag gone too far - or in his case, a game of "send a messenger out on a camel for 2 years."

Quickroute said...

I love the vatican one ! - but then again their good at stretching belief to the limits!

VE said...

sj - Some of those vatican people seem like aliens to me!

jeff - I don't think I could travel by camel for two years...I prefer bucket seats and all that spitting would be a nuisance

quickroute - They wrote the book on it!

Season 200's cast of Dancing with the Stars will include: Carrot Top, That movie voice guy, and Barney. Oh, wait...that might actually be the upcoming season. I get so mixed up.

Kurt said...

Aliens are more believable than the ark thing. Maybe that's why they had to acquiesce.

VE said...

colby - Barney....now there's a master dancer. Hahahaha

kurt - what about an alien ark?

Anonymous said...

Why would you WANT to dance with the stars anyway?

VE said...

anonymous - Maybe they have better underarm deodarant then we do...
