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???

Gun Safety Class Not So Safe!

In Ohio, 73-year-old Terry Dunlap was conducting a gun safety class when he accidentally shot a student.  Dunlap was demonstrating the use of the firearm when a bullet ricocheted of a desk and into the arm of a 26-year-old student.  Apparently the instructor did not know the gun was loaded.  The student was rushed to the hospital where he was treated for a non-lethal wound.

One of the first things I ever learned about gun safety is to always treat a gun as though it's loaded.  I guess Mr. Dunlap didn't remember that one! 


High Protein Sandwich

A frequent flier bought a sandwich at the Cafe Intermezzo in the Atlanta airport and discovered, when they started moving, the white spots he thought were parmesan cheese on his sandwich were actually maggots.
The Cafe owner says they have since changed bread vendors and that the problem did not originate in the restaurant.

Just another reason I refuse to fly.


Paws to Screen

New York dog trainer Anna Jane Grossman is offering a class for dog owners and their best friends to teach their dogs how to swipe the IPad screen with their nose to launch an ap.  Grossman says in actuality, dogs can't do anything very useful on the computer, but admits that she doesn't either.

I shouldn't be surprised, after all, they now offer a cable channel to entertain "stay at home dogs" while their families are away at work and/or school; the pups will be playing Angry Birds in no time!


Wiener's Wife's Career Suffered From Husband's Sexting

Anthony Wiener admitted that his continued sexting after resigning from the House of Representatives in 2012.  "She's been roughed up unfairly, in my opinion,' he said.  He has dropped from first place to fourth place in the mayor's race in New York City.

Duh......This guy never ceases to amaze me!


That's it for head-scratching today!

The sandwich thing honestly made me gag. Never getting that out of my head!-Ashley

Al Penwasser said...

It was even worse for that guy who bought a sandwich than you think. He was a Vegan.

Pat said...

You know, that Weiner guy is just trying to live up to his name!

I'm not a big sandwich eater, and after that story, I won't be eating them at all!

Eva Gallant said...

Ashley: It was gross, for sure!

Al: Poor guy..didn't need that walking protein!

Pat: If that's what he's doing, mission accomplished! And I certainly would avoid airport sandwiches!

Stephen Hayes said...

I don't think that fellow should be teaching a class on firearms, to put it mildly.

Merlesworld said...

Why don't gun shops give firearm instructions when they sell the weapons and then test the buyers and if they don't pass they don't sell them the guns makes sense to me.

Sue said...

Gun safety, huh? Sheesh.
And the maggots??? Ew.


Eva Gallant said...

Stephen: I think you may be right!

Merle: That's way to logical to ever happen!

Sue: The guy needs a refresher course before he tries teaching again! and yes maggots! so gross!

A Beer For The Shower said...

Wow, that guy was lucky. In Nicaragua maggoty cheese is a delicacy. No, really.

"The cheese is known to leave an aftertaste for a duration of up to several hours."

River said...

Eeewww on the maggots, but that wouldn't stop me from flying. After all the food was purchased in the airport, not on the plane. Besides, I don't eat on planes, unless it's a snack I've brought with me.
I'm gob-smacked at the apps for dogs ideas! For heaven's sake, just think of all the screen cleaning that would have to be done and if Fido didn't like what was happening on the screen, he might just chew the thing instead.

One Bad Pixie said...

Ok the maggot story really squicked me out. How disgusting!

Joanna Jenkins said...

Sadly, Anthony Wiener is the biggest joke of all-- His poor wife.

The gun instructor-- Sheesh! He'll never live that one down.

Maggots-- Yikes! That's nasty.

Thanks for WTF Wednesday.

I have to comment on the "gun safety" ?? The one teaching safety should be fined!.....not knowing the gun was/is loaded. Wow..shows that one can teach just about anything!!
