Yahoo new page

So this story is about a Kentucky Church that banned interracial marriage and any interracial Church services except for funerals.

That's not the weird, funny or pointless part. That's at the bottom of page where it says

Other popular Yahoo! News stories:
• British man finds live frog in his chicken sandwich
• Man is accidentally shot by his own dog
• Oregon mom gives birth, didn't know she was pregnant

The Frog in chicken sandwich story links to Miami prison overrun by strippers posing as legal secretaries story

The "Man is accidentally shot by own dog" story leads to Eiffel tower could become world's tallest tree story.

I will never buy the "I didn't know I was pregnant" line. Your body feels everything. Warm, cold. Sick with fever, sick without fever. Everything. You certainly can't pass off arms and legs routinely kicking you in the gut for four or five months, as gas.

You've got no problem with the guy getting shot by his dog or the prison being overrun by stripping legal assistants? It's the unbeknownst insemination that gets your goat.

Well to be honest I was more interested in the frog in a chicken sandwich. I figure with a little Tapatio, that be a tasty sandwich. Frog and chicken could be the next turducken.

yes.

Do you have any idea how many more gov't workers we'd have to hire to facilitate that cash flow and manage complaints about people getting incorrect amounts?

Well then you'd be creating jobs. Government Union jobs at that. The best kind.

Yeah Government.

This is the closest you've ever come to actually saying "I was wrong."

I watched a show of stories about women who had these "surprise" pregnancies. There are a few, consistent factors:

    1. No, the number one, most consistent factor was not obesity, as I'm sure you'd expect. Invariably, they were all diagnosed as being unable to get pregnant due to an issue that also caused them to have irregular (or no) menstrual cycles, which meant that not having a period was par for the course.
    2. Many of them were obese. :-D
    3. The ones who weren't obese had minimal weight gain, and often didn't even develop a true baby bump.
    4. Number 3 largely coincided with women who smoked and/or drank a lot.
Put all of that together, and you create circumstances where women can quite definitely not realize they're pregnant until the very end.

I wasn't wrong.
Most Americans are too stupid to figure out taxes in the first place, and as such they already get a refund.
So all we need is another check box on the EZ form.

Did you smash up your State Capitol?
Did you take a dump on a cop car?
Did you rape a fellow protestor?

We could go on and on.

And if you check any of them you get less of a refund.
Problem solved.

What else you got for me?
