Strange but True.
TRUE CRIME: Mark Maybry of Albuquerque, NM was arrested when he attempted to use his mother's MasterCard in a California liquor store. The card was listed as stolen because she had been found shot to death in her garage, and Mark became implicated when police reportedly found a list in his room which read:
1) Buy shells.
2) Shoot father.
3) Shoot mother.

Sometimes the strangest, funniest, and most bizarre things in life simply cannot be made up. We need only look out our windows, through the newspaper, or up at a sign to discover true humor that fiction just can't supply.

And lemme tell ya, there's a lot of this crap out there. Enough to fill a website, to be specific:

American Mass Media Declares Iraq Victory. U.S. To "Formally" Catch Up in Victory-Declaring.
U.S. to formally declare Iraq victory

Y'know, ideology-baiting headlines like these make it durn hard for the liberal to do his/her job. If one makes the very salient point that there wasn't Peace in Iraq, there is not Peace in Iraq and as long as our leaders keep our soldiers in Iraq never will be Peace in Iraq, then one is accused of Hating America. One presumably has no Common Cause at all with the right, which, of course, Loves America.

But actually, one does. Both the Left and Right Hate The Mass Media And Hate The Mass Media With A Passion.

And I would submit that they have every right to fervently hate any Mass Media corporation larger than at least, say, Joseph Pulitzer's William Randolph Hearst's. Whom 105 years ago this very month infamously replied to one of his news-illustrators who was getting bored in Cuba, words to the effect "You supply the pictures, I'll supply the War."

This stupid MSNBC headline provides yet more proof that this hatred is justified. Essentially, it makes the argument that since the War Is All But Over, there really isn't any major reason to be concerned about Iraq or Iraqis and America can move on to more important issues. Like whether Laci Peterson was a Ho or if this SARS thing will kill us all. Yet check the very next sentence:

Meanwhile, long-time Iraqi exile Ahmad Chalabi, who is back in Iraq, endorsed a U.S. military occupation of the country for as long as two years, even as some Iraqis took to the streets to protest the U.S. presence.

(sarcasm)You know, I really didn't read the rest of the article and I'm really not gonna go into it, either. Because whomever crafted this report didn't do a very professional job; they should have embedded this Actually Important Information deeper in the article. Or at least have the courage to shift any implied responsibilities of What The General Feeling Of How Much We're Gonna Really Be Involved In Iraq Is to one of the few likable Republican Senators like Ms. Zakaria of Yahoo! did.

The editors of the Cold-War era Pravda are undoubtedly rolling in their graves in professional dismay. Because true warriors, be the war Hot or Cold, would like nothing more than their enemy to be worthy of them, and judging by this and other articles, America's Propaganda Capabilities are decaying fast. No doubt making them dead Soviet editors wondering why they lost the Cold War on the Propaganda front...(/sarcasm)

This ain't from The Onion either, folks...
...It's actually from Yahoo! and AP TV news.

Monica Lewinsky Joins Reality TV Ranks

Which begs the question:

Since when did she ever leave the Ranks of Reality TV?!? (sarcasm)If memory serves me right

Hold on... Let me ...fight... against... the lack of a national memory.... that the Privatized Ministry Of Propaganda known as Corporate TV... has done its be ...est... to... foster...

Ah. Here we are.

If memory serves me right, she was in this reality TV show 5 years or so back where she entrapped the President Of The United States of America. It was one of the top-rated shows around, and everybody knew it was fake, even the folks who tried to use it as perjury evidence in a sexual-harassment trial completely unrelated to this reality TV show. (I really wish I knew what the name of that show was...darn...)(/sarcasm)

In any case, Lewinsky was the Kelly Clarkson of her day. And apparently still is: It looks like cashing in on her notoriety is still pretty much her bread and butter.

Ah, the 1990s...them carefree days of yore when we could afford to ignore the 94% of the world whose resources we hog. When launching a pre-emptive strike against Osama Bin Laden was considered a manufactured distraction from what was really important-- namely the investigation of a consensual romance that at worse might have violated DC oral sex laws. Oh, how I long for the absurd White House decadence the Democratic Party provided back in that day, instead of the lamestain, dumb-assed, moralistic decadence of this Republican-controlled White House...

Not a Stupid Headline, but GOOD GOD!
From here:

"Medical Breakthrough

Researchers in Finland have shed new light on one of the deepest public health mysteries of the modern world: They found no connection between a decline in teenage smoking and the rise in mobile phone use. They say smoking rates actually increase in proportion to the use of mobile phones, which contradicts an earlier study.



"A high proportion of Finnish adolescents use mobile phones, but their use is associated with health-endangering lifestyles indicated by smoking," said researcher Leena Koivusilta.

"Often adolescents both smoke and use mobile phones, and this association remains when the amount of weekly spending money is taken into account," she added.

The researchers concluded that there was a need for research into the symbolic role of mobile phones and smoking in modern adolescent cultures.



How many kids have to die before we finally devote the necessary resources for that study?"

The Press Pees on Christmas
Three Die in Pakistan, Christmas Troubled Worldwide.

I do not at all mean to diminish the passing of those three poor girls, but does a single grenade attack in a nation with inner religious turmoil signal worldwide anything?

No, this is NOT from the Onion...
Fast-Food Customer Loses Appetite Over Toilets

In the future I plan to post mostly articles with stupid headlines or with really stupid content. I am not sure how to classify this, but it somehow found its way to Yahoo! News where it was wasting space and lowering IQs of typical news consumers.
