Newsy Notes

Drive-by Beard-Cutting

In Ohio, four Amish men have been arrested for grabbing other Amish men and cutting their  beards. Apparently, they're doing it  because they feel their victims aren't Amish enough. They arrive by car, drag their victims out of their homes and cut their beards. Of course, they have to hire a driver because they aren't allowed to be behind the wheel.  You'd think they wouldn't be allowed to cut someone else's beard, too, but maybe that's just splitting hairs. (Forgive me. I couldn't resist.)

Lindsey in Lockup

Poor Lindsey Lohan is back in the pokey.  I hope when she finishes her sentence, she will move to New York or someplace far away from that judge who seems to really have it in for her. Granted, Lindsey has been a naughty girl. But, that judge seems to be meting out cruel and unusual punishment, especially when you compare it to the little hand-slaps Charlie Sheen has gotten for what has been much worse behavior.  Some people are just beyond help, and as long as they aren't hurting anyone but themselves, it might be better to just leave them alone and let them self-destruct.

Justin Bieber Becomes a Man

Little Justin Bieber has been accused of fathering an illegitimate child who is now 4 months old.  He was 16 and the girl (groupie) was 19 at the time of the tryst. She has filed a paternity suit against him, and is demanding a DNA test to prove he's the baby baby-daddy. who knows how this will turn out, but one thing is certain: If she's telling the truth, he's on the hook for child-support for the next 18 years. There's another questions to be answered. If she is telling the truth, can she be charged with statutory rape? He's a minor, after all.   What a mess!

The End is Near

Remember Harold Camping?  He is that goofy radio preacher who predicted that the world would end on May 21.  Then, he predicted that it would end October 21.  Now, he says he thinks he needs to go back and consult his notes. The sad thing about this guy is that when he finally wakes up dead, he'll just think he was "raptured." If he ends up in the right place, that is.

Hey, Herman, Here Comes Another One

The women are coming out of the woodwork to accuse Herman Cain of sexual harassment, or, at least, inappropriate behavior.  Herman is blaming Perry's campaign for it.  I tend to think it has Karl Rove's fingerprints all over it.  It would be a good way to get rid of two of Romney's opponents, and Romney need not know anything about it.  Fun times!

Stay tuned.

Great stuff! You made my day.

Wait. They take a car to cut off the beards of people who aren't Amish enough? Hahahahaahahahahahahaha. That's great.

The drive by shaving is really mean and very un-Amish behaviour!

I agree with you about the double standards. Miss Lohan gets popped into jail where the rest of the male knuckleheads almost get pats on the back.

They cropped that pic of Herman Cain so you can see him grabbing that old lady's ass.

Do Amish men who escape this treatment say that they have "had a close shave" ?

Betty said...

MerCyn: Glad you liked it.

Kell: Ironic, isn't it?

Peggy: All she needs is a hit TV show and she'll be safe.

IWS: By George, I think you've got it!

Big John: You could say that.

You made my day, making me chuckle, especially with the splitting hairs bit :)
