    I read that 4,153,237 people got married last year. Not to cause any trouble, but shouldn't that be an even number? You know that tingly little feeling you get when you love someone? That's your common sense leaving your body. Relationships are a lot like algebra. Have you ever looked at your X and wondered Y? America is a country which produces citizens who will cross the ocean to fight for democracy but won't cross the street to vote. I find it ironic that the colors red, white, and blue stand for freedom until they are flashing behind you. My...

    The seventies get a bad rap. When people talk about the decade, they focus on all the embarrassing stuff like Pet Rocks, Watergate, shag carpeting, and disco music. Sure, there was a lot about the 70s that was cringe-worthy. But it also had some of the most colorful, over the top slang of the 20th century. And if you don’t believe us, well baby, you can just keep on truckin. Put on your best polyester suit, crank up the Bee Gees on your 8-track player, and revisit some of the best worst slang of the Me Decade. On the other...

    Lost Words from our childhood: Mergatroyd!… Do you remember that word? Would you believe the spell-checker did not recognize the word Mergatroyd? Heavens to Mergatroyd! The other day a not so elderly (I say 75) lady said something to her son about driving a Jalopy; and he looked at her quizzically and said “What the heck is a Jalopy?” He never heard of the word jalopy!! She knew she was old…. But not that old. Well, I hope you are Hunky Dory after you read this and chuckle. About a month ago, I illuminated some old expressions that have become...

  • 'Christmas Vacation' inspired holiday decor prompts calls to 911

    The family put up the display for a contest, purchasing a dummy online and positioning a ladder beneath it to look like it’s tipping over. It’s a recreation of the scene from the movie "National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation," where Clark Griswold hangs from the roof while putting up Christmas lights. The display was too realistic for some. The Heerleins said someone rushed to help, thinking the dummy was a real person in distress. They called 911, along with about a dozen others.

    Seattle’s homeless crisis has business owners and employees in SoDo wondering what exactly the city is doing to help. Homelessness affects the City of Seattle in a variety of ways, as encampments and RVs in Seattle’s SoDo neighborhood continue to make their presence known “We certainly are seeing an increase in criminal activities on our streets, of threatening behaviors, of people that are afraid to walk on our streets,” said Erin Goodman, executive director of the SoDo Business Improvement Area. Speaking to KTTH’s Jason Rantz, Goodman outlined a myriad of problems businesses in the SoDo neighborhood face on a daily...

    Despite forecasts of a Democratic House takeover, liberals grappling with 'PTSD' are braced for another surprise election disaster. On the eve of the midterms, President Donald Trump’s approval is falling, young voters are energized, and Republicans look poised to lose their House majority. It’s enough to make Democrats nervous, miserable wrecks.

    From Delish Ahead of National Sandwich Day, Oscar Mayer decided to settle a very important debate that's been around for quite some time: they declared hot dogs official members of the sandwich family. That is, they believe hot dogs are sandwiches. Just for funsies (and advertising purposes, but we'll get to that later), they also dropped an official Oscar Mayer "Is a Hot Dog A Sandwich?" hotline this morning, which you can reach at 1-833-SNDWICH. The hotline is toll-free and asks you to give any and all thoughts-whether you agree with the company on their stance or not-on the subject....

    WASHINGTON, D.C.—After receiving confirmation that she was at least 1/1024th Native American, Elizabeth Warren has embraced her fractional identity. Having gotten an authentic Native American outfit from a costume shop and armed herself with weapons she read on Wikipedia that a Native American might use -- such as the tomahawk -- Warren stood before a buffalo exhibit in the National Museum of Natural History at the Smithsonian to give a speech to the assembled press. "You pale faces have taken my land, and have angered the Great Spirit!" Warren announced as she glanced down at her book of Native American...

What if a foreign power were to ply him with this nectar in a can? Talk about taking control of our government! Suppose they throw in a case of Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier? A bitter college roommate is going whole hog, wailing, He lied about being a beeraholic. By the media's account, Kavanaugh was a bounder, a brawler and a drunk.

    “Baby Got Back“, also known as “I Like Big Butts”, is a hit rap song written and recorded by American rapper Sir Mix-a-Lot, from his album Mack Daddy. The song samples the 1986 Detroit techno single “Technicolor” by Channel One. This is a translation of it. Translation Here, we have it translated into Latin by Quislibet. There was additional support and clarity offered by Ukelele. I have found it hilarious, and thus have reprinted the translation here. Enjoy.

    Chuck Schumer was visiting a Washington D.C. primary school and the class was in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings. The teacher asked Mr Schumer if he would like to lead the discussion on the word 'Tragedy'. So Mr Schumer asked the class for an example of a 'Tragedy' A little boy stood up and offered: 'If my best friend, who lives on a farm, is playing' in the field and a tractor runs over him and kills him, that would be a tragedy.' 'Incorrect,' said Schumer. 'That would be an accident.' <>A little girl...

    Much has been made of Neymar’s flopping during this World Cup. Brazil’s superstar has spent plenty of time on the ground writhing in agony — some warranted and some very much not. And his antics look a lot like a KFC South Africa commercial that was released upon the start of this year’s tournament. Neymar has spent 14 minutes on the ground Perhaps the most impressive advanced stat of this World Cup has been provided by Swiss TV station RTS Sport. According to RTS’ math, Neymar has spent 14 minutes’ worth of game time on the ground. Neymar has also...
