Hitting the High Notes 2/26/10

Here's the roundup of odd news stories I have seen recently:

-Here is quite a bizarre story that the Mt. Cat sent me about a woman who has been convicted in a stalking case. Who was she stalking? Herself.

-Why on earth does Susan Smith think she deserves a new trial? Go to hell Susan.

-Here's one where two Canadian teachers thought for some reason it was a good idea to perform a lap dance complete with grinding and simulated oral sex in front of a group of 13 year old students. Whats worse than that? There's video. Yep it's up on youtube.

-Some idiot legislators in Utah are actually thinking about having a state holiday for John Moses Browning (the inventor of the machine gun) on the same day already celebrated as Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Are you kidding me? Instead of being passively bigoted why not just go all out and also make it KFC and watermelon day as well? Geeze.

-There is going to be a mural of Michael Jackson done in New York City. Where will it be? In the Brooklyn subway station where the video "Bad" was filmed by Martin Scorsese of course. Little known fact about this video (and tidbit of useless knowledge that I posses) is that Prince was actually approached about playing the Wesley Snipes part in this video.

-And finally my favorite. There is a group of students at the University of Mississippi who are leading a movement to replace the old Colonel Reb mascot that is being fazed out with Admiral Akbar from Star Wars. Hilarious! "It's a TRAP!"
Until next time keep reading the news....

Poor women...she may just needed to feel important or need some attention.

We wonder why there are so many pregnant teens in the school system.

Really Doc...KFC and watermelon! It is funny you should say that. Before the election of Obama there was a festival with a parade in Holden Beach. Well some A-whole thought it would be a good idea to have a special float of his own. On this float was a figure looking some what like Obama and on a table was KFC chicken buckets and watermelon. In front of the table read Dinner provided by Obama. How sick can you get.

Doc said...

I meant it in a sarcastic sarcasmness sorta way... The A-hole in Holden beach meant it in a racist biggotness sorta way. Just Sayin'

I think it's hilarious to think of Michael Jackson and Prince battling it out in a gang fight/dance scene. They're both such big, tough scary men, lol.

Dianne said...

Utah is one freaky, scary place

Matt-Man said...

Poor ol' Susan...She has always been so misunderstood. Have a lovely weekend Doc. Cheers!!

Jay said...

Utah is an odd place.

I guess I'm going to be forced to watch that video so I can build up the appropriate amount of outrage.

I just got back from Salt Lake City a couple of weeks ago; it was my first trip ever to Utah. SLC was a nice city and there were a bunch of tourists, so I can't really say I met anyone from there other than the barmaids. They had great legs from skiing!

Anyway, while there I found out that drinking there is now like everywhere else as of this past August. Prior to that, you had to have a sponsor wherever you wanted to drink. Without someone to sponsor you, you went alcohol-less. Thats just crazy.

Doc said...

A sponsor? What? Like a DD ?

Christine said...

Thanks for keeping me up on current events.

I don't know what Smith wasn't drowned in prison long ago. I thought those bitches take care of their own.

jennifer said...

I loved Michael Jackson back in the day... waaaaaaay back in the day... and I think that is a great place for a mural.

I hope the U of M students get their way! I'm glad to see the Colonel go (how did he and the rebel flag make it as long as they did????) and Star Wars rocks!!

Evil Twin's Wife said...

Susan Smith needs to be invited to a sock party on the ward. Just taking the trash out, is all.

Doc said...

True story... Susan Smith went to sumer camp with me when we were kids. Yep, same summer camp that I went to with both Mandy and Southern Belle. Her name was Susan Vaughan back then. I may even still have pictures of us from back then.

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

Man. My students are missing out SO MUCH. I am much too tame, huh?

Doc said...

One other horrible coincidence with the Susan Smith case... The day she drowned her kids was October 25, 1994. October 25th happens to be my birthday.

Chandra said...

I HAD to watch the video first of course...and all I can say is OMG! What part of that did they think was a good idea? I felt dirty just watching the video! LOL! Well, the teachers were suspended...at least they had job possabilities during their time off,err suspension. LOL!

Mandy said...

I can't believe Susan was at Lutheridge...crazy! I did NOT know that!

Four Dinners said...

She can stalk me. Looks quite sexy in a psychotic way...;-)

Kat said...

Are you frigging kidding me with those teachers??? WTH??

And HAHAHA! Michael Jackson vs Prine in a fight. Hehehehe!
Or should I say, "A-he-he!" ;)

terri said...

What could those teachers have been thinking? All I can imagine is, like my kids have described some of their teachers, they've forgotten they are supposed to be the mature ones, the role models. There are some teachers that get too involved with the kids and start to act and talk like them. Weird.

Just me... said...

That Susan Smith is still breathing is only because I have yet to be appointed Empress of the Universe..
Otherwise, she'd have long since been tied in a car that was being slowly sunk into a lake..

Kaylen said...

Oy, Susan....she is just a mess.
she was molested by her stepdad when young, then had consensual sex with him as an adult. More recently, two guards were disciplined for having sex with her in prisoner. At some point, she had a personals ad up on writeaprisoner.com....but she's off the market as of late, I hear.

Effing disaster of a human being. My heart aches when I think of what she did.

Canada is soooo different....our teachers don't let our kids film them in class.

Just me... said...

Based on my most recent experiences with the educational machine, I think webcams ought to be installed throughout all schools with parents having access to view at all times! We'd probably be shocked to see what actually does go on...

Disaster Chick said...

I'm not a parent. However, Susan Smith got off easy in my opinion. My punishment. Put her in the same car, back seat and doors welded shut. She had two kids so it is lowered into the water and the car fills up - once it is full for a about a minute yank it back up and let it drain. Repeat the process once more - and on the third time it isn't brought up.

I'm not evil, but that punishment seems fair. If she didn't want the boys anymore her ex wanted them.
