Man Marries a Bitch

I hope the title caught your attention. This is a story about why an Indian man was forced to marry a female dog.

We have all heard the 'man bites dog' stories, but how about a real-life 'man marries dog' tale!

This one takes the biscuit, and it could only happen in India, the land of the Kama Sutra.

But you won't find this kind of love story between man and beast in the ancient Indian sex manual.

It took place for real during a traditional hindu ceremony at a temple in the southern state of Tamil Nadu.

The groom in question was a 33-year-old Indian farmer named Selvakumar, and he was wed to a female dog named Selvi.

He married his four legged bitch to atone for stoning two other dogs to death and stringing them up in a tree 15 years ago.

He believed the act cursed him and he had been suffering ever since, he told the Hindustan Times.

After he stoned the dogs he said his legs and hands got paralysed, he lost hearing in one ear, and his speech was impaired.

With doctors unable to help him, Selvakumar turned to an astrologer who told him he was cursed by the spirits of the dogs he had killed.

He could undo the curse only if he married a dog and live with it, the soothsayer warned.

Family members chose a stray female dog who was then bathed and clothed for the wedding occasion.

Selvi the bride was brought to the temple by village women and a Hindu priest conducted the ceremony.

The paper showed a picture of Selvakumar sitting next to his canine bride, which was adorned in an orange sari and flower garland.

The paper said the groom and his family then had a feast, while the dog got a bun.

It was reported that Selvi attempted to make a bolt for it -- apparently due to the big crowds -- but she was tracked down and returned to her new 'husband'.

"The dog is only for lifting the curse and after that, he plans to get a real bride," a friend of the groom said.

Deeply superstitious people in rural India sometimes organize weddings to dogs and other animals, believing it can beat certain curses.

Coke in Oranges-- Man, 76, Arrested.

Today in the capital of Italy, Rome, a Dutch man was arrested at the international airport for trying to smuggle in six kilograms of cocaine which worth about euro 5 million on street value, the police said.
The drugs were packed into oranges after they were emptied of their pulp. The man said customs officers that those oranges were needed for him to keep up his vitamin C level.
Also five Italians and a Paraguayan man were arrested there for concealing 250 kilograms of cocaine in tropical plants' trunks.

What? Seriously? I bet they're gonna start smuggling heroin in pineapples next. . .

Move over Sport Bra

Since the creation of the bra it has been the goal of the male species to remove it. But who knew by doing so we could be risking their safety. A 57-year-old Detroit woman avoided serious injury when the underwire on her bra deflected a bullet shot, wow talk about support. The woman, who lives on the West side of Detroit, saw a group of men breaking into her neighbor's house. One of the burglars saw her and fired a shot, luckily the bullet just hit the underwire of the bra. The woman was treated at a nearby hospital. Unfortunately the suspects in the shooting got away.

Aerosmith Forced To Perform Free Concert In Hawaii

In 2007, rock-band Aerosmith was a no-show a scheduled concert in Hawaii for over 8,000 fans. A class-action proceeding by several of those fans resulted in the band being ordered to play a free concert in Maui.

An attorney representing the litigating fans said that everyone who had bought a ticket to the initial concert would get a free ticket plus any expenses, including travel, that occurred.

Aerosmith's attorney said that the band was happy with the decision.

What I don't get is why it took 2 years for them to reconcile, and now they say they are 'happy with the decision'? I like Aerosmith, but I can't stand big bands. They always forget about the fans that made them big. They become greedy and careless..

Wind-Swept Chihuahua Reunited With Owners

Tinker Bell the six-pound Chihuahua has been reunited with her family after she swept up in a 70-mph gust of wind and taken away out of sight. Her owners, Dorothy and Lavern Utley hired a pet psychic to help them find her.

The 8-month-old had been taken to a wooded area about a mile from where the wind took her, and while she was dirty and hungry she was otherwise okay. She had been with her owners on their platform at a Detroit flea market.

I thought this was amusing. Personally I hate chihuahuas, they are the most annoying bitches (if they are females of course)... I had a friend with one and all it did yap... not to mention their owners are usually pretty strange..

I Double Dog Dare You

What do get when you put together a gun, drugs, and game of dare? Well apparently not a good time for two teenagers in Kansas. It all starts when 17-year-old boy taunted his 18-year-old friend, which had a gun at the time that he would not shoot him and dare him to. He was very wrong in doing so, the 18-year –old shot his friend him in the thigh. OUCH! When police arrived, the two reportedly said the older teen had found the younger teen in the street with a gunshot wound, but police said they had reason to be suspicious. The 17-year-old was taken to a hospital and the 18-year-old was arrested for aggravated battery. Thus prove that the problem is not guns or drugs it’s that sadistic game called dare.

Adam Lambert Is Gay is it going to Effect American Idol

Adam Lambert is amazing singer but he is gay. Should that effect Adam in American Idol? Gay people become huge celebrities if he is gay or not. Adam Lambert rocks the stage on American Idol and I think he will be next winner. The only way this could take a negative effect if the media really becomes biased and goes against Mr. Lambert. Maybe Adam is only experimenting but still in the end it seems that he will become famous and make a lot of money not matter if he is gay or not!

This is an article from Stupid News ( . . go to that link if you want to watch the news video that goes along with this. It's pretty ridiculous.

Earth-Like Planet Found

Astronomers based out of Hatfield, England, have discovered two planets that have conditions close to that of our own life-supporting Earth. One planet, Gliese 581 e, is of the right size, meanwhile Gliese 581 d is in a "habitable" zone.

Gliese 581 e is only 1.9 times the size of Earth, while other planets discovered outside our solar system were all that of Jupiter's size. Gliese 581 d has an orbit around a sun-like star that could allow liquid to form on the planet.

Finding rocky Earth-like planets is proof that scientists are getting better, and closer, to finding life-bearing bodies. Of the nearly 350 exoplanets (planets outside our solar system) found to date, nearly all have been found to be uninhabitable.

Here is a bit of news that isn't about some idiot that did something idiotic. These kinds of stories always spark a little imagination, but I think in reality, they should fall more into a category more like fiction. They estimate this plant to be about 20.5 light years away. There is no possible way to travel 20.5 light years in the life span of a human. 1 light year = 6 trillion miles, so this planet is roughly 123,000,000,000,000 miles away. For a little more perspective (I know - I don't know why I am breaking this down this far.) light travels at 186,000 miles a second. Currently, the speed record for a man made space propulsion system is a whooping 5 miles a second. At that rate: [123,000,000,000,000 ÷ 5 (miles) ÷ 60 (seconds) ÷ 60 (minutes) ÷ 24 (hours) ÷ 365.25 (days)] we would be able to get to this new planet in 78,000 years and with the current life span at about (optimistically) 80 years, it would take 975 family generations just to get there... those would be some weird people when they got off that boat.... anyways, my point is that it is impossible...


David, I think you are the only one with admin permissions, and teach wants us to turn on the "Show Comments" option. Do you know how to do this? I will delete this posts once it's done.

A Public Service Announcement

Dear Motor Vehicle Booger Retrieval Specialist,

I just wanted to inform you that we can obviously see you looking for gold in your nasal cavity. So sir or mama can you please refrain from showing us how much you love your nose in your car, it a window not a two way mirror that you have there. Hey I'm not here to judge; even I dabble in some nose play every now and again but always in the privacy in my own home. It was cute when you were two but so was eating mud, so please don't pick and drive think about the kids.

Unlikely Robbery

When I read this, I wondered to myself why. But then I remembered, people have issues.

Police in West Vancouver, British Columbia, assured residents in April 2001 that they had stopped a three-year petty-crime spree in an upscale neighborhood when they arrested multimillionaire Eugene Mah, 64, and his son, Avery, 32. Police said the two were responsible for stealing hundreds of their neighbors' downscale knick-knacks, such as garbage cans, lawn decorations and even municipal recycling boxes, and hiding them at their own luxury home. Mah's Vancouver real estate holdings are reported at about US$13 million, but among the recovered goods were such tacky items as one neighbor's doormat and, subsequently, each of the 14 doormats the neighbor purchased as replacements.

Stupid Driving Excuse

Here is a good reminder to don't do drugs :]

Christos Kokkalis, 19, allegedly doing 65 mph in a 30 mph zone, was charged with assault in Framingham, Mass., in March, for reacting badly to a pedestrian's hand gesture suggesting he slow down. According to a police report, Kokkalis swerved across a street into the man's path, drove by, turned around and did it again. The report said Kokkalis denied fault, claiming that his car "turns on its own" because of an "alignment" problem. [Metrowest Daily News (Framingham), 3-2-09]

Taxi Driver Imprisoned Indefinitely for Rape and Sexual Assaults

Former stripper 51-year-old John Worboys, from London, previously an employee as a taxi driver for the world famous London Black Cabs Company, would control his victims by drugging them through drink.
Worboys would win the confidence of ladies with a story of winning a large amount of money followed by giving them drugged champagne before sexually assaulting them. It is believed that he is also responsible for around 85 other attacks.
He was sentenced for one rape, five sexual assaults, one attempted physical attack, plus 12 charges of substance abuse charges from July 2007 to February 2008. There will be no consideration of parole for at least eight years.

All I have to say is: "What a dumbass."

Baby shaking game taken off iPhone

On Wednesday April 22,2009 Apple Inc pulled a game called "Baby Shaker" off of the iTunes store. This game prompt an outrage because on it you try to quiet down a baby who is crying by shaking it. The game displays black and white drawings of a baby.
The description of this game on the iTunes store said " See how long you can endure the babies cries before you have to find a way to quiet it down". To quiet down the baby the iPhone owner shakes the device and big red X's appear over the eyes.
An apple spokesperson said this game went on sale on Monday and was removed by Wednesday. The spokesperson did not said why the game was approved to be sold. Apple said it screens each iPhone application and gives little feedback on them.

This is just. . . well. . . just plain stupid! Why would you encourage Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS), even if it's virtual? God, people are so dumb.

Donkey Fights Off Dog Who Was Attacking Sheep

What a crazy donkey, at first I couldn't believe it!

Dotty the donkey rushed to the rescue when she saw sheep in the next field being terrorised by a Staffordshire Bull terrier cross. The dog had grabbed one of the sheep by the head, and Dotty pinned the dog to the ground until it let go of the sheep.

The dog, which had been running wild, also bit three horses during its rampage and was later "put down". Ann Rogers, who owns the field, said, "I tried to hit the dog with a piece of drainpipe but I left it because the donkey was doing a better job."

Stanley the sheep survived the ordeal, but "Two of his teeth have come out, and his jaw is disfigured because the dog has paralysed the nerve on one side of his jaw," said Mrs Rogers. The incident happened in Scarborough in Great Britain.

Infant Fails Drug Screening

Children just grow up so fast these days!

In another case of absolutely horrid parenting, Kristin Lesley was taken into custody by Pickens County Sherriff after her newborn baby tested positive for methamphetamine.

She will be charged with child neglect and is being held on 7,500 USD bond at the Pickens County Detention Center. She is charged because her activities placed her unborn son in undue harm.

Passenger Jumps Out Of Plane Over Northern Canada

Windsor Genova - AHN News Writer
Cambridge Bay, Nunavut (AHN) - A distressed passenger has forced open the door of a small charter plane flying at 23,000 feet over Cambridge Bay in Canada's arctic region of Nunavut and jumped out without a parachute.

Two pilots and a female passenger failed to prevent the 20-year-old Nunavut man from opening the door and leaping out the Beechcraft King Air 200 on Wednesday. The plane was forced to make an emergency landing in an airport in Cambridge Bay, according to police who met the pilots and the passenger on the ground.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police has launched a search and rescue for the missing man.

The plane was en route from Yellowknife to Cambridge Bay, a remote community in western Nunavut, when its pilots radioed for emergency because the male passenger became unruly.

The pilots tried to calm down the man but he opened the exit door and leaped out of the plane.

Here is a story found on, about a man who became unruly and decided to jump from a plane while in the air at about 23,000 feet. Apparently the guy was "distressed" and even though the pilot and a female passenger tried to convince the guy not to jump, decided to anyway. The guy was only 20 years old too. Maybe the guy just really wanted to go skydiving.

School Teacher Accused of Taking Students to Strip Club

A female teacher in Hamilton, Ohio has resigned after she was accused of taking some of her students to a male strip club. The 47-year-old teacher admitted to the unorthodox field trip, saying four students were involved.
All four of the students were cheerleaders and in February, they asked their teacher to take them to the strip club. The teacher stated when questioned that she got permission from the parents of all the students involved.

There are no words to describe the stupidity of this . . .

Man Kills His Family, and Self

Maryland: Christopher Wood, 34, appears to have shot and stabbed his wife and three children, ages 2, 4, and 5.

Sheriff Charles Jenkins reported five notes were found that might provide some insight in to the slayings. "There is some indication in at least one of the notes that there might have been some psychological issues with Mr. Wood," Jenkins said.

Authorities also cited some possible financial trouble as motive. No record of domestic violence was found.

There were a couple notes that gave some incite as to why this person killed his family, and financial troubles was one of them. Obviously this guy was a whack job, and I feel terrible for the families affected by this. What scares me is that this is now the fourth story I have read about people who have lost everything they worked for, due to the downfall of our economy, that have ended up killing people, having a stress induced heart attack or putting there kids in foster homes so they could have 3 meals a day. The economy is making people do things that they wouldn't have imagined in their worst nightmares. Kinda scary seeing the emotional and psychological effects that the downfall of a capitalistic society has on the country as a whole...

Mothers to Stand Trial for Feeding Their Infants Pureed Takeaway

The mothers of two infants, one aged 13 months and the other 16 months at the time of arrest, have been ordered to stand trial for child cruelty. They fed their infants pureed pizza and pork crackling and other takeaway foods diluted with water.

The children, now aged 2 and 21 months were so malnourished they would have died had not authorities intervened. Elena Mantz, pediatrician, stated that the children were not even able to hold their heads up unassisted or even sit up.

The trial will take place in Cairns in Northern Queensland, Australia.

This story was just posted on It just goes to show how stupid people really are, and how uneducated the world is. I have a big problem with people procreating without any idea of what it is they are doing. I just cannot stand idiots having kids, then raising them to be just as stupid as they are, that is if they are even able to raise them. This is perfect case of an idiot having kids, that has no clue what they are doing, and doesn't even hold themselves accountable. I mean, who doesn't have enough brain cells to deduct that feeding a baby Pizza Hut through a straw is not good for him... This is just one story.. there are millions of stories of parents having children that simply should not...

26-year-old man with body of a two-year-old

Wednesday, April 15, 2009
Surgeons have been astonished by the medical rarity of a 26-year-old man trapped in the body of a two-year-old toddler.

Jerly Lyngdoh: trapped in the body of a two-year-old
Jerly Lyngdoh - who lives with his farmer parents in Meghalaya, northern India - looks like any other tot with his tiny head and delicate 2ft 9ins long body.

But it's only when he opens his mouth to reveal a full set of adult teeth that the truth about the world's oldest baby is revealed.

I thought this was kinda strange. This was posted on UK website Reminds me of the movie Jack with Robin Williams except just the opposite. I thought this type of stuff only happened in movies and books, not in real life. Some people are arguing that this is a hoax and the website should take it down, but they are still claiming it to be real. I don't see why any parent would want to make this kind of stuff up. Anyways, what do you guys think? Hoax or Real?

What is our world coming to when Info Commercial pitchman can't kiss a prostitute? Everyone favorite Sham Wow guy,Vince Shlomi,44, paid a South Beach prostitute,Sasha Harris,26, $1000 for some sexual healing. Unfortunately for Shlomi, hookers are pretty strict about the whole non-kissing rule, because when Shlomi went in for some tongue action, Ms. Harris felt the best response was to bite down and not let go. I guess she bit down on more she could chew, because Shlomi counter with a couple punches to the face. Both Shlomi and Harris were both treated for their injuries and then booked for felony aggravated battery. Luckily for these love birds this month it was announced that no charges will be brought against the two. I guess there moral for the story is don't kiss prostitute,don't know why you want to but don't, and "Don't F!#k with Sham Wow!"

"Escaped Lion" Actually a Dog

Here is a story out of Ireland, those crazy Irish need to get better health care!

A full-scale police operation involving a helicopter and dozens of officers swung into action in Belfast yesterday when a large lion-coloured animal was spotted prowling in a park close to Belfast Zoo.

The police received numerous reports from members of the public who thought they had seen a lion wandering around Cavehill Park in the north of the city.

Zoo keepers carried out an urgent head count of all the animal compounds, including the lion and tiger enclosures, but reported that all animals were accounted for.

A police spokesman said officers now believe that the animal seen in the park on Monday was in fact a large stray dog.

“Police can confirm that there’s no stray lion wandering about in north Belfast,” she said.

Man Urinates On Woman, Jailed

Jerome Kenneth Kingzio, 28, from US will be in prison for three weeks in Honolulu after he did plead guilty in federal court . Last month the drunk man urinated on a woman, 66, during a flight from Los Angeles to Honolulu.

At the time of the incident the woman was watching an inflight movie. The FBI investigated the case.

Doesn't the FBI have anything better to do then investigate a man peeing on an old women? That's sick!

Woman Survives Gunshot to Chest; Had Money Stuffed in Her Bra

Bahia state, Brazil - 58-year-old Ivonete Pereira survived a gunshot to the chest because the bullet was stopped by a wad of money stuffed in her bra. She was attacked Saturday while taking a bus in the city of Salvador when two armed men held it up.
Pereira was on her way to Lauro de Freitas, where she has a summer home. She had stashed the money where she did because the region is notorious for bus holdups. The stray bullet that hit her was fired when police engaged one of the gunmen.
Although the cash absorbed just enough of the impact to save her life, the bullet still had to be removed at a hospital. The assailants escaped and the retired police sergeant involved in the shootout was killed.


Now who ever said putting money in your bra wasn't a good idea? Who knew it could save your life?

Hair Dresser Beats Down Robber

Unarmed Hairdresser Beats Down Armed Robber, Makes Him Her Sex Slave for Two Days

Russia: A man who tried to rob a hairdresser and her clients with a gun had his attempt at crime backfire when the martial arts-trained hairdresser forcibly disarmed him and used the cord of a hair dryer to tie him up.
The man allegedly spent the next two days handcuffed and gagged while the 28-year-old force fed him Viagra and raped him repeatedly. When she let him go he was forced to get treatment for damaged genitalia. Both have made allegations to police.
"I don't know what's going to happen now. We could put both of them behind bars: him for robbery, her for rape and assault," said a police source.

This was a story posted at
Thinking his plan back fired would be an understatement. I think I am just as confusied here as the police in Russia - they both should be locked up. However I think the girl should be locked up at a mental institution rather than prison. Why does this girl even have mass amounts of Viagra anyways? And why is a hairdresser trained in martial arts? Sounds like a movie... oh wait..

Woman Finds Maple Leaf Containing Face of Christ

Hey everyone, this is my first blog and I don't know what i'm really doing. We all have seen stories like this before. A woman believes that she see's the face of "Jesus" on a maple leaf that she found.

Massachusetts - A 24-year-old woman in Sudbury claims to have found a maple leaf containing the face of Jesus Christ while she helped her family with yard work. Her mother, Mimi DiMauro, a realtor, surveyed her coworkers on what they saw."Three-quarters of the people I showed it to immediately saw the face of Jesus Christ. The other quarter saw Bob Marley or John Lennon, but when I asked that quarter if they were religious, right away they said, 'It's Jesus Christ,'" she said.Since the discovery in 2007, DiMauro has kept it stashed. However, recent discussions about the leaf motivated her to show it to the world in celebration of Easter and spring. "I thought, maybe this is something that could be uplifting," she said.

Yea... I think these people see what they want because it looks like a burned leaf to me

Sex in The Fast Lane

I thought this was pritty cool but totally dumb!

A man in Norway who was caught going 133 km/h in a 100 km/h (82 mph in a 62 mph) zone in a Mazda 323 while having sex is facing a heavy fine. Police spotted the man, 28, and his girlfriend, 22, about 40 km west of Oslo on the E18 highway late Sunday.
Soendre Buskerund district police superintendent Tor Stein Hagen said, "It was veering from one side to the other because the woman was sitting on the man's lap while he was driving and doing the act, shall we say."
"He couldn't see much because her back was in the way," said Hagen. The incident was filmed and will be used as evidence against him; it's likely he will face a lengthy driving ban and "several thousand Norwegian crowns" in fines.

Pritty crazy. I wonder if the judge asked him if it was worth it.

Man Fights for Lunch Money

Here is a short but impressively stupid story out of Canada. Somehow, I can believe this really happened.

In December 2003 Yves Julien worked a regular 11-hour shift plus overtime all at premium pay for the Canada Border Services Agency and then demanded an additional $9 (Cdn) for a sandwich he had purchased when asked to put in the extra hours. The agency said he was not entitled by contract because the overtime was already at premium pay. In September 2008 after nearly five years of multiple reviews hair-splitting legal decisions and lengthy appeals Julien won his $9.

Politician Angry Over 'Gay' Elephant Acquisition

Poland: Councillor Michal Grzes from the conservative Law and Justice party has lashed out at the Poznan zoo for acquiring Ninio, an elephant which appears to prefer the company of other males and is no certainty to reproduce.
"We didn't pay 37 million zlotys for the largest elephant house in Europe to have a gay elephant live there. We were supposed to have a herd, but as Ninio prefers male friends over females how will he produce offspring?", said Grzes. How about you adopt?

According to the zoo head, Ninio is possibly too young to identify a clear preference. Ninio is only 10 and will not reach sexual maturity for another four years.

This just shows how prude the world is about homosexuality...

Man Attacks Fiancee For Putting The Cheese On Wrong

This news story made me feel a whole lot better about my life. And about my fiance..

"Lyndel Toppin's 44-year-old fiancee may need surgery after he attacked her for not putting the cheese on his meatball sandwich in the correct place. Toppin's fiance, not named in this story, may need ligament surgery after the "barbaric attack."
The arrest affadvit states that Lyndel "became enraged due to the victim not placing cheese on his hoagie roll correctly." Toppin then went to another room, got a knife, and slashed her finger so badly 23 stitches were needed to close the wound.
Toppin then bit down on his fiance's wrist and would not let go. Toppin is currently being held in a correctional facility. Superintendent John Reilly Jr. of the local Philadelphia prison said "Wait till he gets a load of the prison food." "

Chia head Obama

Did anyone here about this?

Chia Obama has been pulled from Walgreen's shelves after only one week because it did not fit with the "company image" although an earlier report from AOL that the item was racist was said to have been a misquote.

The Deerfield-based company spokesman said the item, a likeness of the commander in chief which sprouts a green chia afro, was, in fact, said to have been labelled offensive by customers.

Joe Pedott president of the company which makes the clay bust says the item is "totally patriotic" and "It's hope, courage and pro-American," adding that he voted for Obama and sales of the item had been increasing steadily during the week.

I think thats dumb. I don't see how it's so racist. Would it still be racist if it were a Will Ferrel Chia head?

Man Charged After Passing Gas Toward Cop

Here is a story from West Virginia. Although funny, it could also cause controversy. Who's side are you on? I personally feel that the charge was unnecessary and the cop was probably just looking to vent out some stress. Then again, who knows.

A West Virginia man who police said passed gas and fanned it toward a patrolman has been charged with battery on a police officer.

Jose A. Cruz, 34, of Clarksburg, was pulled over early Tuesday for driving without headlights, police said. According to the criminal complaint, Cruz smelled of alcohol, had slurred speech and failed three field sobriety tests before he was handcuffed and taken to a police station for a breathalyzer test.

As Patrolman T.E. Parsons prepared the machine, Cruz scooted his chair toward Parsons, lifted his leg and "passed gas loudly," the complaint said.

Cruz, according to complaint, then fanned the gas toward the officer.

"The gas was very odorous and created contact of an insulting or provoking nature with Patrolman Parsons," the complaint alleged.

He was also charged with driving under the influence, driving without headlights and two counts of obstruction.

Cruz acknowledged passing gas, but said he didn't move his chair toward the officer nor aim gas at the patrolman. He said he had an upset stomach at the time, but police denied his request to go to the bathroom when he first arrived at the station.

"I couldn't hold it no more," he said.

He also denied being drunk and uncooperative as the police complaint alleged. He added he was upset at being prepared for a breathalyzer test while having an asthma attack. The police statement said he later resisted being secured for a trip to a hospital that he requested for asthma treatment.

Cruz said the officers thought the gas incident was funny when it happened and laughed about it with him.

"This is ridiculous," he said. "I could be facing time."

You weren't fired because of the recession, you just suck at your job.

Hello, all! This is Aleesuhn_Muhree reporting here at News Dump. I found this article at The Onion, and thought that maybe you could all relate to such stupidity:

Area Man Thinks He Was Fired Because Of Recession
March 6, 2009
Issue 45•10

CHICAGO—Though there were more than a dozen just causes—including tardiness, gross incompetence, and poor hygiene—to terminate Louis Palmer from his position as an accountant at Brillstein & Altman CPA, PC, the 29-year-old told reporters Monday that he believes he was fired due to economic conditions beyond anyone's control. "Nobody's safe from this recession, man," said Palmer, who might have noticed that his employer actually posted a 12 percent growth in 2008 had he not so frequently been asleep at his desk. "I'm going to miss the two-hour lunch breaks and all the free office supplies, but what are you going to do? The economy's a total wreck." Palmer returned home that evening to discover that his wife had left him, which he attributed to the war in Iraq."

The Onion holds some interesting stories, including this one. Seriously, I don't feel that I need to express my opinion much with this news article.... Just read it. You'll figure out my thoughts.
