An odd pairing of headlines

The Associated Press lists these two headlines consecutively in its National News:

1 Killed in LA Helicopter Freeway Crash

Speeding Car Wrecks on Runway, Kills 5

People have got to learn, it's cars on the freeways, aircraft on the runways. Don't get it backwards.

Lost in translation

You never know what you will find in an international market.

One of the people on the myHusbandBetty boards found this, in Indianapolis, of all places. I've added her blog to my list.

EDIT: Behind the bar at the Zipper Theatre (which I went to Friday night for drag performer Sweetie's birthday party), they had a pack of the soup. But the package was slightly different: it had "COCK FLAVOURED" in the big letters, "Soup Mix" in the small type. I don't know which is the newer version. I don't think it matters--it needs some retranslation regardless.

Vote for Choice

Blog for Choice DayI believe it is important to vote pro-Choice because the government has no right to control people's bodies. It should be the sole right of a woman to determine whether she wants to have a child.

This is the reason I stopped supporting the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. They started supporting anti-Choice candidates.

Weird websearch of the day

Somebody found my blog doing a websearch for "the awe and dread with which the untutored savage contemplates his mother-in-law are amongst the most familiar facts of anthropology." Somebody in Korea.

How in the world is that going to get someone to this blog, I wondered. It turns out that it was the title of some spam that I made my Spam of the Day a couple years ago.

BTW, it was a quote by the British anthropologist Sir James George Frazer.
