When it comes to newsprint, I generally stay away from my city's paper because (according to what I heard from other well-informed individuals), our local journalists are about as talented and insightful as a drug addict in withdrawl (no offence to any addicts reading this...).
One day this week though, I went to the local newspaper's website to discover the following hot-topics deemed news-worthy (aka, front page) for my area:
First, let me please say that I live in a CITY. We don't generally have free-range turkeys running about. What concerns me is the follow-up which states that a turkey flew into a pickup truck and caused damage. What the hell kind of fucked up turkeys are these?!?! I'm thinking that they are in fact ZOMBIE TURKEYS, and thus the title should read "Zombie Turkeys Coming to 'Gobble Gobble' Your Brains".
Way to fail us all, local journalists.
More interestingly, and hopefully much less fatal is the front-page story about the stolen underwear. Why does this make the news???? Unless it's been discovered that used underwear doubles as a suitable weapon against the zombie-turkey apocalypse, then I don't want to know about the panty-fetish of one of my fellow citizens.
|I think we know who stole the underwear...|
Can we please note that story #1 is about a tragic death, followed by a story about masturbating. I believe I'll call this a case-in-point.
Back to the bubble I go...
