Sex Education Again.

Well, another teacher got caught having sex with a student.  She was a 27 year old Social Studies teacher and he was a 15 year old student.  Their tryst only lasted for a month and now she is going to  jail so I hope it was worth it.

Where were these teachers when I was in school?

Father Cutie 2

Well, Father Cutie is back in the news again.  He has announced that he is leaving the Roman Catholic church and moving to the Episcopalian church instead.

The Episcopalian church is very similar in beliefs to the Roman Catholic church except that they allow their priest to marry.  So, it stands to reason that the good father would change churches.

Are wedding bells soon to follow?

“I Love My Teacher.”

No, literally.  Another 20 something female school teacher has been arrested for having sex with a student.  In this particular case, it was an 8th grade boy who happened to be 15 years old.  What is more, the boys mother approved of the relationship and allowed them to sleep together at her apartment.

I suspect that this sort of thing has been going on for many many years but in the past, they were more discrete.

No Smiling!

Some states have recently prohibited people from smiling for their drivers license photos.  Apparently, a smile interferes with their facial recognition programs.  Therefore, they want you to not smile.

Now, that should be too hard to comply with.  After all, waiting in a crowded office for hours just to get you drivers license renewed would take the smile out of anyone.

Go figure.

Spin, Crash and Burn.

The other day when I was in Meijers (regional grocery chain) I witnessed an accident. A guy in one of those motorized shopping carts came charging up to the checkout where I was at.

He was going too fast and lost control. He ended up hitting a display at the end of the checkout and knocking it over. Little cans of something went flying every which way.

Fortunately, the man was not injured. The cashier was not amused.

Rocky Racoon.

The other day as I was going through the drive through at Micky Ds, my food was handed to me by a woman with two black eyes. At first I thought that she must have been in a accident. But, upon closer examination, I realized that it was eye makeup.

Now, I am not talking about a little excessive, I am talking a lot. And it wasn’t just eye liner, it was eye shadow. This woman could easily pass for one of the androids in Blade Runner.

Since it is too early for Halloween, I am writing it off as bad taste.

Swine Flu 2.

Officials in NYC are relieved to learn that the death of a child was not related to the Swine Flu. It was just the regular flu.

Of course, the child is still dead and the his death was caused by the flu, it just wasn’t Swine Flu so I guess that is OK.

I am sure that the media is very disappointed.

I Hear You Knockin…

The other morning, when we were trying to sleep in, we heard a strange “thump” coming from the addition. Assuming that it was just one of the cats, we didn’t think much of it. But when we heard it a few more times, we got up to see what was making that sound.

To our surprise, there was a turkey in full mating display, pecking at one of the windows. Apparently, he saw his reflection in the glass and thought it was another male turkey infringing on his territory. Of course, every time he made an aggressive more towards his reflection, his reflection made an aggressive more towards him.

After about an hour, the turkey decided that his reflection was tougher than he was and so he moved on. Living in the woods is always interesting.

Cheeky Monkeys.

On my way to work one day, I noticed a sign along the expressway advertising “Cheeky Monkeys”. I though it was an unusual name for a business and wondered just what kind of an establishment it was.

Upon further scrutiny of the sign, I learned that it was a cafe, which really surprised me. With a name like Cheeky Monkeys, I would have expected a pizza place with arcade games, kind of like Chucky Cheese. So, the cafe/bakery motif took me by surprise.

Well, I wish them the best.

Old Faithful.

Two park workers in Yellowstone were recently fired after a surveillance camera caught them urinating in Old Faithful.

I can understand their thinking. They were equating their urinating to that of Old Faithful urinating.

Some how I suspect that alcohol was involved.
