The Ridiculous and Just Plain Silly

September 26, 2008

A couple of news items meeting the criteria of this post’s title.

First a man in West Virginia was charged with “ass”ault, er I mean assault for farting at a police officer, and right inside the station no less. The offender allegedly pointed his weapon at the officer and let’er rip, then fanned the lethal gas at his target. Perhaps he should have actually been charged with attempted murder. Apparently “the gas was very odorous and created contact of an insulting or provoking nature”.

The man claimed “he couldn’t hold it no more”. Charges were later dropped. Apparently the evidence dissipated.

Next in Japan, that country’s diaper producers in an attempt to corner a growing market put on an adult diaper fashion show. They had models on the runway complete with bouncy music. The crowd included diaper manufacturers, nursing home workers and doctors. What about those who have to wear them? They weren’t represented. Guess by the time you need these you don’t care or know anymore. Life is described sometimes as from crib to grave. I think it’s more appropriate to say from diaper to diaper, only the size changes.
