WTF Wednesday




Apparently the governor of this great state of Maine has a fondness for toe jam; he just can't stop putting his foot in his mouth!  First he said he would tell President Obama to go to hell; then he told the local chapter of the NAACP they could kiss his butt; now he's called the IRS the new Gestapo!  It's so embarrassing to most Mainers.  I see only one solution to this problem:  Duct Tape!



*********************************




A seventeen year-old teen was swimming with friends when he was attacked by an eleven-foot alligator.  The gator bit off his arm below the elbow.  Wild Life Officers were able to find the guilty alligator, cut him open and recover the missing arm.  Doctors were ybable to reattach the limb, however. 

These guys chose to swim in an area of Glades County which is known to be habited by large gators. Although it is considered a rare event for an alligator to bite a human, wild life offficials said that since 1948 there have been 224 incidents involving alligator bites, 22 of which have been fatal.  That's about 224 reasons I wouldn't be swimming in the Glades County ponds or rivers!  Sheeesh!

********************************


In London, a man was arrested for streaking with a faux Olympic torch just before the begining of the Olympic Torch Relay.  With "Free Tibet" painted on his back, the 27-year-old was taken away in a blanket by police and charged with "suspicion of outraging public decency.  Aparently, all that security to bar terrorists from the Olympics didn't deter a naken man and his tool torch!

(sorry, no photos available!)

*******************




And for those of you looking for an new "do,"  SuperCuts is calling this one "Rock the Gecko."

When you're done with that duct tape, we could use it for the Texas Governor too. I keep wondering how he keeps getting re-elected.

Stephen Hayes said...

I think I could pull off that Rock the Gecko look. What do you think?

Charlotte said...

There wouldn't be enough duct tape left for Maine and Texas, because the Louisiana governor needs to be totally wrapped in duct tape and put in a closet. He's the worst and is trying to be Romney's VP. Look out USA.

I really like the Rock the Gecko. Very artistic.

I love that gecko haircut! I'm going to send that pic to my son. He loves shaving designs into his hair.

Brian Miller said...

oh my...that gecko hair cut is ....interesting...

politicians fail to surprise me any more...

i watched three kids jumping out of a boat into a lake with a known gator in it once when we lived in FL...i kept waiting to see a head disappear...they made it though....crazy

You're welcome to share our governor here in Missouri, Jay Nixon. He's awesome.

I love Maine, but I'm sort of glad I don't have to deal with its politics after reading your post!

Terri Sonoda said...

Good stuff! "224 reasons..." LOVE that! And the geiko hairdo. Ewwww.

Raquel said...

Love your news posts! Thanks for the laughs.

Duct Tape: It should be required for many politicians!

rosaria williams said...

It's hard to stay sane when our fearless leaders keep making us all look stupid.
Hope you are staying cool!

Alessandra said...

Pass the duct tape when you're done. I just watched a program on tv about somewhere in Florida (where else?) where an alligator killed and ate an 11 yr. old girl. You couldn't get me to move to Florida for all the tea in China.
I'm calling Super Cuts right now....:)

How do you come up with these :)? The Olympian Freer of Tibet really worked it! BUT that haircut. I have to appreciate art in all forms!

Priscilla said...

If it makes you feel any better, I hadn't heard about the governor of Maine down here!

Al Penwasser said...

The trouble was, those gators were at a waterpark.

Blondie McBaffled said...

Kinda funny, but I was just thinking I might like your governor! Maybe he should come to Georgia. Very funny.

Pat said...

I just got my hair cut yesterday. It's close to a disaster. With a few snips here and there, I could easily rock the gecko - at least I'd be cool instead of looking like I have a man haircut!

And yet another use for duct tape. There just isn't anything it can't do!
