The medical community is still silent on this issue, citing a lack of available test subjects for their research.

Two-Headed Porpoise Found For First Time

The headline almost seems to imply that people have been out searching for two-headed porpoises.

Like the previous headline stressing that this was a first time two-headed porpoise sighting, I like that this one distinguishes itself from a routine whipped cream accident.

You can joke about this if you like, but you have no idea how difficult it is to get the whipped cream into that 55 gallon vat along with the live ostrich and your date.
Yeah, you have to read the manual.

I love how conspiracy theorists think we have people (slaves or otherwise) on Mars but that the Moon landings were faked.

Another headline wondered if NFL ad revenues are about to "go limp" now that neither Viagra nor Cialis are renewing their NFL buys; one could even say that they're 'pulling out'.
The backstory here is that the patents for both products are about to expire meaning the market is about to be flooded with cheaper generic brands making hugely expensive ad
campaigns trying to out-brand each other no longer worth the money.

But before the teamsters haul the 'fuck tubs' away (I never did get how separate bath tubs promoted intimacy) and donate them to one of those house restoration shows, the
headlines writers are going to have themselves one last fling as it were.

BRACE FOR A TRULY TERRIBLE HURRICANE SEASON



Now there's nothing particularly weird about that headline ... EXCEPT THAT I READ IT EVERY YEAR!!!!
Every summer, for at least the last ten and maybe more like 20, I read/hear how THIS year is going to be the one where, either by quantity or by size of storms, we're going to get our collective
asses kicked.
Except that, for the most part, large hurricanes making landfall on the continental U.S. have been below average in recent years but nobody ever changes predictions after they're wrong they
just go ahead and make the next one figuring no one will remember the last. And of course trumpeting that this is going to be a somewhat average-ish year for storms doesn't make the cut
when determining what leads the news.

Well, at the current time there is a hurricane and three disturbances. so it's peek hurricane media season.
