The Blunderful World of News #1
Those familiar with my Hubs know I love the humorous, the odd and the ironic often found in the newspapers. If you enjoy these kind of things, too, you may get a kick from the following clippings - a collection of items that somehow made it to print. Some are pertinent news stories, others are ads or classifieds.
Ads & Classifieds

Unfortunately, she still can't catch a frisbee in her mouth.
This headline should silence all those claims that the Republican party is nothing more than a social club for male chauvinists!
Hopefully these astute archeologists can soon answer the mystery of who is buried in Grant's tomb!
Coincidence or confirmation of what a lot of us already suspected? I'll let you decide.
