Have you ever read a news article and had to go "WTF!" Is this real or someone's idea of a joke. As they say, "Life can be stranger than fiction.".

Fire breaks out on Hillary and Bill Clinton's property in Chappaqua
Bill was reported to tell Hillary that they shouldn't have burned all of the evidence at once. The Secret Service quarters and evidence of all of the Clinton's past indiscretions was said to be a total loss. Investigators say the fire was an accident and there was no sign of foul play. :whistle::lol:


‘I don't even know HOW’: Some Oregonians panic about new self-service gas law
Sorry folks. This article speaks for itself. All I can say is I think I have missed out. Pumping my own gas all these years has made me lazy. :facepalm::lol:


Why 2018 Could Be This Marijuana Stock's Best Year Yet
One line in this article states, "This activity has driven Canopy Growth stock up to all-time high levels. Yet I think it has more room to grow,". Hmmmm...Maybe it is time to get back into Stocks?:lol:

Anyway, These are real News Articles but no one said I couldn't report them how I see them. Maybe you have seen some news that makes you look a second time? Report it here. Humor is where you find it so you might as well find it here. ;)

Doesn't take much to find funny things in the news and you know Old LC, he is going to put his own twist on it if he doesn't think it is funny enough. ;)

I see that this morning, I have been filling my tank up ever since living in Australia (48 years). :meh:
I will probably get flamed for this Mate but I wonder why we let people like this vote. They will complain about the price of petrol and never think about the Station owner having to pay to keep someone just to pump fuel. I can assure you that the owner only makes a few cents per liter. I've seen the invoices. :caution:

Today in the Medical New Headlines?:eek::facepalm:

PENIS-WHITENING LASER PROCEDURE GOES VIRAL IN THAILAND
Since this is a Family forum I will abstain from the usual crude jokes. All I can say is shame on you Newsweek. If these are the type of articles you are putting out then you need to fire your Copy Editor. Hmmm... I wonder if they are charging by the inch for this procedure and suppose I could get that wart removed?:whistle:

Newsweek just keeps on giving.

CHEAPER GENERIC VERSION OF VIAGRA WILL BE AVAILABLE SOON
Yipee! Now it they would just make it over the counter.

PAUL RYAN WANTS YOU TO HAVE MORE KIDS
In the article, Paul Ryan has discovered the bipartisan solution to fixing Medicare and Social Security: babies. I guess that is where cheaper Viagra comes into play.

I use raw water out at the shed, water runs off the roof when it rains into a tank.

There has been treated sewerage water testing done here in Australia
I grew up drinking from a well and cistern. For those who don't know what a cistern is, that is a tank to catch rain water. Usually it is kept underground where I lived.

This is another one of those fads for people who have nothing better to do than think up new fads. :lol:

Oh and for the Ex-spurts out there, I know it is used for other things besides water. I am edgemakated ya no.;)

Now for the News. Oh my!:eek:

Connecticut man ripped 20 chickens' heads off during 'jealous rage', police say
I often get jealous when I see my hens with other roosters. Looks like a crime of passion to me.:whistle:

Man allegedly put hand in woman’s pants while she slept on flight
Come on! It was the inflight movie and he was just feeling around trying to find his popcorn.:oops: I have to say the man is a magician. He has a woman half undressed and fondling her on a plane full of people with his wife setting right next to his victim. And! He has gotten this far before waking her. Just WOW!o_O


Errr...Before you start sending me nasty letters and emails remember this. It is about humor. Yes I am being Politically Incorrect and I don't expect eveyone to see my humor. Just let it be known that it is only intended as humor. If you find it offensive then post you own brand of humor. And one more thing, we need to laugh at something, someone or ourself just as long as we laugh. :)

Now in Tech News?o_O

Speak, shower and shave: Kohler brings smarts to your bathroom
Hmmm...Just what I always wanted, a Hi-Tech bathroom. Just say, "Alexa, Wipen my..." well use your imagination. How about Alexa in the shower. Sounds good to me until the snickering and giggles start. Or tell Alexa to turn on the lights over the mirror so you can shave or adjust the mirror to make shaving easier. It is all fun and games until Alexa starts telling you how bad you look. Yep. I really want a Hi-Tech bathroom. I could stand a little more abuse.:p

MCLAREN'S NEW 570S CONVERTIBLE MAKES LUXURY (KINDA) PRACTICAL
I'm sorry. Luxury and Practical in the same context just doesn't compute. First off a convertible is not and never will be practical. Fun? Yes. Paying $200,000 for a car is practical? Just depends on what side of the check book you are standing on. The bloody thing doesn't even have a cup holder. Practical? Not even kinda! :lol:

Bloody hell Mate, I didn't realize DonnyBoy even knew where Australia was. I told the Secret Service to hide his Atlas coloring book and crayons.:facepalm:
I bet they made sure he did not find out about the top secret Pine Gap just up the road a bit either, or it will be more fake news.
