    At first glance, the compass point cushions seen in this photo seem entirely inoffensive. But look closer, and you'll notice a glaring mistake; the designer has gotten his south and east muddled up. And the fact they made it to the shop floor suggests the quality control department at the homeware store responsible leaves a lot to be desired.

    "Bramhall used an argon beam coagulator, which seals bleeding blood vessels with an electric beam, to mark his initials on the organs," In 2000, a doctor in New York allegedly carved his initials onto a woman's abdomen after her C-section. And in 2010, a gynecologist in California allegedly branded a woman's name on her own uterus. Both patients brought civil suits against the doctors.

    WHAT AISLE IS THE POLISH SAUSAGE IN? Everyone seems to be in such a hurry to scream 'prejudice' these days ..... A customer asked, "In what aisle can I find the Polish sausage?" The clerk asks, "Are you Polish?" The guy, clearly offended, says, "Yes I am. But let me ask you something. If I had asked for Italian sausage, would you ask me if I was Italian? Or if I had asked for German Bratwurst, would you ask me if I was German? Or if I asked for a kosher hot dog would you ask me if I was...

Like many young men his age, the boy didn't really know what he wanted to do, and he didn't seem too concerned about it.       One day, while the boy was away at school, his father decided to try an experiment.   He went into the boy's room and placed on his study table four objects.     1. A Bible..... 2. A silver dollar..... 3. A bottle of whiskey........

  • ‘The Simpsons’ Team Considering How to Handle Apu Backlash, Hank Azaria Says

    New York Post ^ | Dec 4, 2017 | William Earl
    The Simpsons team is looking at how to handle longtime Springfield resident Apu Nahasapeemapetilon after a recent wave of criticism of the controversial Indian character. Notably, Hari Kondabolu’s documentary The Problem With Apu examined how the character reinforced hurtful cultural stereotypes. But Hank Azaria, who has voiced the character since 1990, has remained quiet publicly about the matter. TMZ recently spoke with Azaria, who said that the documentary was definitely food for thought and could inspire change on the show. “I think the documentary did make some really interesting points, and gave us a lot at The Simpsons to think...

    SNIP With Kenan Thompson as a department store Santa and Kate McKinnon as his elf, the sketch featured children sitting on his lap and, instead of asking for toys, asking questions about the news, such as, “What did Al Franken do?” “Is President Trump on the naughty list?” and “Why are football players kneeling? Do they hate the troops?” The approach was risky for two reasons. For one, depending on kids in a live TV setting led to a few line failings, although the risk was minimal here, as the few mistakes (save for Thompson answering one question that wasn’t...

    Behold the irony of snow-related ironies: Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey opted to close on Saturday and cancelled its planned attempt at a world record snowball fight. The reason? Snow, of course. The Central Jersey amusement park had assured everyone earlier in the morning that the "massive family friendly snowball fight" would go on as scheduled despite the season's first snowstorm, which was expected to bring as much as six inches of snow in parts of the Garden State on Saturday. (The Philadelphia area is still set for 2-4 inches.)
