- This past week the Public Policy Polling people did a survey to determine the popularity of the U.S. Congress. According to them Congress has a whopping 9% approval rating. Fifty-seven percent of the respondents said they think more favorably of root canals than Congress. Fifty-eight percent said they would favor colonoscopies over Congress.
- A survey conducted by CareerCast released a list of what they believe to be the 10 most stressful jobs. (does anyone, other than me find it odd that police officers came in 10th?)
9. Taxi driver
8. Newspaper reporter
6. Senior corporate executive

Hide and Seek
A routine search of a Kentucky arrestee turned up some interesting contraband. Jessica Webster was initially arrested for burglarizing a Louisville home. She is now facing additional charges after correction officers found two hypodermic needles and syringes in her vagina.
Doesn't this item just beg for other questions???? If they were empty why did she put them back in her hoo-ha? Do all people that go to jail get a gynecological exam? Just curious...I haven't had this particular experience.
She Was Floored to Find She Was a Landlord
A Washington state woman was concerned that her new furnace wasn't working properly because her house seemed not to be warming.
Velma Kellen called a repairman to come and check it out. The repairman went under the house into the crawlspace. When he came out he said, " I have good news and I have bad news." (you know that is never good)
He said the good news was that the furnace was fine and the problem was a hole in the venting. He had repaired the hole. The bad news is that there is a man living down there which was evidenced by beer cans and liquor bottles. The new resident had cut a hole in the heat vent to keep the crawlspace heated.
Mrs. Kellen said, she had wondered why her house often smelled of marijuana smoke.
|Don't you love what I have done to the place?|
There is just so much wrong with this...I don't even know where to start. Wouldn't a person become suspicious if marijuana smoke was wafting through their house...well, if they weren't smoking weed.
Need a Ride Ma
They grow up so fast but not always so well. At least that is the case of Zachariah Dalton Howard.
Zach walked into the Thumbs Up convenience store according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel and
decided while he was there, he might as well rob the place.
Zach told the clerk that he had a gun but the clerk insisted there was no money in the register. After showing Zach the empty drawer, the poor disappointed burglar left empty handed.
According to the police the 22 year old hadn't gone into the store with the intention of robbing it. It was a last minute decision.
Maybe one of his resolutions for the new year was to be more spontaneous and try new things. Perhaps, he needs to work out his transportation issues before the next robbery.
