WTF Wednesday

How fast the weeks fly by!  It's What the F*ck Wednesday again, in the blink of an eye!  That's the day when I share with you those news items that cause me to scratch my head and ask myself, "What the f*ck???"

Hand-holding a Gateway to Sex?

The Tennessee Senate has decided that hand-holding is way too sexy for kids, and have made it part of the sex ed curriculum.  The bill also goes so far as to make it a fireable offense for a teacherto demonstrate the activity.  What's next?  Will a mother escorting her child into a school building while holding his or her hand be labelled a pedophile???

I remember holding hands with boys while walking around the playground in elementary school;  I don't recall that it gave me any urge to duck behind the swing set, get naked, and make babies.  (Of course, I can't speak for the boys involved!)  Have times changed that much in the past 60 years that we have to make sure children kids don't make any physical contact--even as innocuous as hand-holding?  


OOPs Baby!

A sixty year-old woman was admitted to the hospital with stomach pain, uncertain whether she had food poisoning or appendicitis; turns out she was in labor!  She gave birth to a baby girl a few hours later.  Apparently surviving menopause does  not guarantee that you don't need to use birth control.

Imagine giving birth at age 60?   Shoot me now!


Cat or Cap

 This girl's mother called the bakery and ordered a cake for her daughter's graduation party.  She included a photo of her daughter and asked if they could draw a cap on her head.

Someone has a hearing problem, I'd say!  I hope it at least tasted delicious!


Bike Thief Run Down by Marathon Mom

A thief in Seattle, Washington got a surprise when he tried to steal a bicycle from a suburban garage.  The bike belonged to the husband of a marathon runner!  Dressed in running attire and preparing for her daily run, she spotted the stranger entering her garage.  She emerged from the house as he emerged from the garage with the bike.  She ordered him to drop it; he looked her straight in the eye, got on the bike and rode off down the driveway.

Angered by his dismissal of her, she ran after him.  He soon regretted his decision and ditched the bike.  She continued after him, while shouting to neighbors to call 911.  He yelled at her to stop following him between huffing and puffing, but she responded that she could continue for 12 miles if necessary.   Having just completed a Masters Degree in Pastoral Counseling, the Marathoner tried to reason with him and suggested they talk.  The police arrived and apprehended the man after they had run a little over a mile. The man was charged with theft and criminal trespass.

There's nothing scarier for a man than a woman running after him yelling, "Let's talk about your feelings!"

Remember that days when little girls would walk around the schoolyard with their arms over each others shoulders because they were best friends? Now that isn't allowed either. even a quick hug is a no-no. Such a sad state of affairs.
As for giving birth at 60, that makes me glad my hubby lives several suburbs away from me.

When I was in elementary school we played kiss tag. The boys and girls would chase each other around and peck each other on the cheek. That's probably seen as public indecency at this point! And honestly back then the boys thought it was gross!

Terri said...

That's the silliest thing I have ever heard...what's next in this crazy PC world we are living in?

Stephen Hayes said...

"Let's talk about your feelings!" --I agree; few things scare a man more than this statement. Thanks for the dose of morning chuckles.

Gail said...

Crazy...what about the buddy system??? Safety of children staying together????

I think, like most of us, they need to up grade their politicians.

Is it OK to hold hands when crossing the street? RIDICULOUS!!

The Dose of Reality said...

I honestly cannot get over the hand holding one! That is just ridiculous! And the cat on the head is hilarious!-Ashley

Eva Gallant said...

River: I totally agree!

Angela: You naughty girl! lol

Terri: Isn't it?

Stephen: It was my pleasure!

Gail: I think you are right!

fishducky: gee...that could lead to thank you hugs!

Ashley: Why would anyone think a cat on the head was the request on a graduation cake??? lol

When we were kids and went anywhere with the school we had a partner and had to hold hands with that person while moving around it was a good way of keeping track of so many kids and I still see it done today.
I wish I could run like that and chase down crooks.

I have a friend whose bike is a "fixie--" no gears, no brakes. He saw someone take off on it and gave chase just long enough to get the guy up to some serious speed, and then watched as he realized he had a problem. Dinged up the bike a little when the guy bailed out but it was worth it.

Seriously about the hand-holding?? Are you kidding me???

And the cat on the head is priceless.
