Hitting the High Notes 3/8

Here is this weeks smorgasbord of odd stuff:

-A million nerds are in mourning after the death this week of Gary Gygax, who co-created the fantasy game Dungeons & Dragons and is widely seen as the father of the role-playing games. How much you wanna bet they make some kind of a creepy shrine or dungeon dedicated to him in his home town of Milwaukee?

-If you have ever worried that you are a bad parent, or thought that you had the worst parents in the world fear not! All you need to do is meet "The Worst Mommy in the World" from Orlando Florida. This disgrace to humanity decided because her 2 year old daughter was throwing a temper tantrum that she would punish her by spraying her with a high-pressure water hose at an Orlando car wash....Yeah you read that right, one of those car wash hoses. Thank goodness the security cameras caught her so there is proof... The video showed the child trying to hide her face while the woman pinned her to a wall and sprayed her at close range. The Sheriff's Office Child Abuse detectives are still investigating the criminal portion of this case. I say let me do the investigation on this one this woman doesn't deserve to be a parent.

-From the "Uh No thank You" department: The Seattle Biomedical Research Institute will pay volunteers as much as $4,000 to be bitten by mosquitoes infected with malaria. Ummmm I prefer my tropical diseases to stay where they are, in the tropics so I think I will have to pass.

-Whoever came up with this list of the worst nude scenes in cinematic history obviously never saw the movie "Borat". I dare anyone to disagree with me.

-This dude is braver than me: The divorce of Anton Popazov and his wife, Nataliya, is about to go through, but the couple are still contractually committed to the Moscow State Circus, where their act includes Nataliya's shooting an apple off of Anton's head with a crossbow. The Times of London asked Anton during a show in Sheffield, England, in February whether he was afraid. "I still trust her because Nataliya is very professional," he said. "(T)he show must go on." [The Times (London), 2-12-08]

Here is this week's "Motivational Poster of the Week:


Ya'll have a great weekend and don't forget to move your clocks forward tonight !

The worst Mommy. I read this post drop jawed and mouth covered. I say we spray paint her orange with a high pressure spray gun and then set her in the trap field and I can have some target practice.

The $4k from the mosquito experiment isn't enough to burry a person these days is it?

Couldn't Nataliya get a new partner if say her aim were a little off one day?

The Terry Bradshaw nude scene was pretty sickening. I haven't seen the Borat scene but if it is worse that Terry Wayne Bradshaw- I'll pass!

I have never had problems in Hoboken. In fact I always find parking there. I guess I'm lucky knock on wood.

Bad Mother? What's so wrong about waterboarding one's child? Cheers!!

I was sitting here thinking that, much like sex, even when a nude scene is bad it's still pretty good. I was wrong. There are some terribly bad nude scenes out there.

I'll have to make this site a destination to visit on a regular visit.

I can't believe that mom didn't spring for the hot wax treatment. What a cheapo.
