What's the weirdest bit of news YOU'VE heard lately?--Al

Lately ? ? ? Safeway Stores are going to put out a shopping cart with the equivalent of a Denver Boot on it. They will lay an underground cable on the perimeter of their parking lots and when someone tries to push the cart over and past that cable an electronic activated motor will put a shoe under the wheels. There fore a strong man will have a heck of a time pushing it to his home. Their supermarket competitor here in Denver does not intend to do any such thing.

So, which is the weirdest ? ? ? ? ?

I think the squirt gun has it. EWEWEWEWEEWEEWEEEWEW. I think the whole assault with a deadly weapon is very valid, then again I also believe that if a person cheats on their spouse, unless they have gone to some very extreme measures (like having testing BEFORE they have sex with either partner, y'know waiting for testing to have the affair and then being tested again before they have sex with their spouse again) they should be arrested for "assault with a deadly weapon". Believe me, I'd press charges!! (okay, so now maybe other people have an answer to your question, "what's the weirdest...", they be saying what that Glenna-chick said, she's weird.

Well, the plans to use Viagra to save the Panda from extinction seemed rather unusual ... though I guess it makes sense. But will we ever be able to look at the WWF symbol the same way again?

Y'know, I don't know if it is the weirdest news, but it kills me!! A woman went all the way to term, delivered a healthy baby, then sealed him up in a plastic bag!!! Why if you don't want a baby, but are going to go through the whole pregnancy don't you give the baby up for adoption? If you don't want to get caught abandon the baby (not that I am thrilled with abandonment either) where it can be found and then raised by somebody who wants a child!! Further more, I am totally against abortion, but since it's so available why not have one instead? Beyond that why not use birth control, hey take it from me, I know it doesn't always work, so ABSTAIN if you don't feel prepared to raise a child!! Okay, I am going off, at this point, with that woman still not having had any charges pressed against her, all I can say is, think I can find a ziplock big enough?
