“Weight is something that many people have to deal with,” the guidelines read. “Make sure that you are taking care of your temple, exercising and eating properly.”
The church later apologized, writing on its website “Forgive us if we offended anyone. That certainly was not our intention. These guidelines have never been used to discriminate against anyone and have never been enforced.”
Why have guidelines if they’re not enforced? Questions that make you go “hmmmmm.”
And there’s no such thing as a fat man or woman of the cloth, right?
*I got married the first time when I was young and strong, and I carried my wife for almost 14 years.
Who knew that if I’d LITERALLY carried her for just under 300 yards, I could have won lots of beer and cash?
Who knew there were annual wife-carrying contests throughout the world? The genre’s name is a misnomer, as you don’t actually have to be married to throw a woman over your shoulders and navigate a few challenging, muddy, watery obstacle courses on your way to the grand prize!
I haven’t managed to find one African American couple who competed this year. Didn’t really surprise me. White people can come up with the damndest stuff!
*Oh god. I’ve been pissed at not getting jobs I wanted so badly in the past, but I NEVER thought of doing anything like this.
Travis Tarrants, a 40-year-old man from Indiana, was so mad that he was passed over as the new school basketball coach that he sent dead skunks and a raccoon via the U. S. mail to the guy who won the position.
And as if that wasn’t enough, he spray-painted the man’s car with messages like “you will die” in an attempt to get him to resign as coach and fourth grade teacher at the school in French Lick, Indiana.
Dude, did you seriously believe YOU would be able to step in even if he did.
The current city code does not include cats on its list of animals that need to be leashed.
I would think not!
Now, I’m more of a “dog person,” having only lived with one cat in my lifetime. (I don’t believe you “own” animals; you share a home with them.) Salem (he was named after the cat on the 90s TV show Sabrina, the Teenage Witch) was one smart pussycat — the only one I knew who could fetch.
*The biggest political nightmare of Hillary Clinton’s lifetime could have occurred last night. During the first of three scheduled presidential debates, a different Donald Trump could have showed up: measured, informed, poised, articulate, and ready for the Oval Office.
Trump managed to hold it together for about 10 of the 90 minute, uninterrupted broadcast, although he gave viewers a hint of the misogyny he’d bring to the White House. After referring to Hillary as “Secretary Clinton,” he condescendingly said “Is that OK? I want you to be happy. It’s very important to me.”
Trump started by trying to attract voters in states like Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania who are frustrated by the loss of manufacturing jobs. He sounded almost semi-literate, but he quickly devolved into…Donald Trump.Continue reading →
*Let’s just call this The hug felt around the world. Michelle Obama, who will go down in history as capturing a beauty we haven’t seen in a First Lady since….sound of crickets while I think…since…Ok maybe Jackie Kennedy on a certain level, has got to have the biggest heart. At the opening of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture, saw former President George W. Bush, and gave him a hug.
The current asking price is a cool $616,000 — but that may change soon.
“The original plan was to take this property to market without using any reference to Harry Potter,” real estate agent Paul Bosanko said. But since news of the property’s connection to the movie got out, interest has increased sharply, “and that may or may not influence the final price that we achieve at this property,” he said.
Translation: the price is going up quick and in a hurry.
The three-bedroom house is in Bracknell, a town about 30 miles west of London. While the home was used in the original movie, a studio set based on the house was built for later installments of the eight-film series.
Real estate agency Chancellors says the house “has recently undergone complete renovation to an extremely high standard.” But yes — as I know you’re wondering just as much as I am — THE HOUSE STILL HAS A CUPBOARD UNDER THE STAIRS!Continue reading →
