Good morning, Friends! It’s What the…What? Wednesday. My favorite day of the week because I get to scour the national headlines to find you the interesting and bizarre. This is just too much fun!
Last Wednesday, I brought you Sweet Brown; a charismatic woman in Oklahoma whose apartment building caught fire in the middle of the night, causing her to have issues with her bronchitis. “Ain’t nobody got time for that!” Right? If you missed the story, you can follow this link to last week’s What the…What? Wednesday blog.
It seems that Ms. Brown’s popularity just continues to grow. Late last night, a good friend posted to his Facebook wall a new t-shirt available through www.cafepress.com. All Sweet Brown fans simply must have this t-shirt!
To order this shirt, follow this link.
All I can really say is that I sincerely hope Ms. Brown is cashing in on some of the goldmine that her charismatic words and personality have inspired!
The next story I have to bring you is one that seriously caused me to take a double-take. The couple I’m about to introduce to you will certainly go down in the history books as both the coolest grandparents ever, as well as the absolute stupidest grandparents ever!
It seems that a Florida couple, Belinda and Paul Berloni, were babysitting their granddaughter when they got the grand idea to hook her toy ride-on car to the back of their SUV and tow her around town! It seems that Mr. Berloni was driving, as Mrs. Berloni sat in the rear cargo area of their SUV cheering their granddaughter on as she was towed in her “small plastic hot wheels car.”
Really? How in the world do any two sane adults think for even a second that this is a good idea! And they were babysitting their granddaughter! Would you leave your children with these people??? For more on this story, you can follow this link to the MSNBC story.
A California man is suing BMW, claiming that a bike ride on the “ridge-like” seat of the BMW gave him a “severe case of priapism.”
Okay, folks…I’m the “Word Queen,” but I had to look that one up. Priapism. Yikes! For those who don’t know, here’s how dictionary.com defines the word:
noun1. Pathology . continuous, usually nonsexual erection of the penis…
Ummmm…Yikes! I’m afraid that’s way too much information for me. Whoa! In simple terms, this poor man has been “suffering” from a 20-month-long erection. Yikes! My first thought was that this guy is just bragging. My second thought was: Free advertising for BMW! It’ll be fun to see if their sales reach an all-time high. I’d love to hear what y’all think!
