WTF Wednesday

Every now and then there are items in the news that cause me to scratch my head and ask , "What the f*ck?"  Then one day a week I put them together in a post to share with you.  Here's what's got me scratchin' this week:


I just read that 47 states have submitted petitions to Washington requesting that they be allowed to secede from the Union.  (I'm proud that so far none has appeared from Maine!)  Talk about sour grapes!  At least the signers of these petitions represent only a very small percentage of the populations of these states.  Didn't we go through this once before, folks?  I think it was called the Civil War!

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

A teenage girl in California stepped into a rattlesnake pit while trying to catch a signal on her cell phone so she could text her mother.  She suffered 5 bites and was rushed to the hospital where 20 vials of anti-venom were administered.  She's doing find now and says she plans to watch where she's walking from now on!  Good idea!

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



Is it just a coincidence that the book General Patreaus' biographer/paramour wrote is called "ALL IN:  The Education of General David Patraeus"?  Methinks he may have learned a lot!

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

And in one county in Alabama, they'd rather vote for a dead Republican than a live Democrat:

I'd say that's taking party loyalty to the extreme!

I have to say, this weeks WTF moments were classic.

Stephen Hayes said...

I could probably get behind voting for a Republican...provided he was dead.

River said...

Perhaps they don't realise the Republican is dead, if he's looked really old and grey most of his life, they probably can't tell.

Vinny C said...

I am curious, though... How does a dead guy even run?!

Brian Miller said...

the secession talk is just idiocy....seriously so what do they do when/if it ever came...think of all the seniors that would stop getting benefits and then what? much more to it than people think....

Jenny said...

It is sad people vote just to say " I voted".....that is really knowing your candidates.....!!~!

Love your WTF Wednesdays. This post election business makes me throw up a little in my mouth. These sour grapes people are really providing a good example to their children. Sheesh...

we voted a dead man into office down here in Texas too... lol...he was a Democrate... I guess it can go both ways... I think we may have elected some "dead (brain dead) men" that are still walking upright.. lol..
