drop that pencil sharpener and hands in the air. do it now. oops

Her daughter’s name is ..... Scout?  What kinda name is that?  How come celebs are naming their offspring weird or silly names?
Oh well.  I once named a cat Rover so who am I to question names?

So then, do ya think perhaps Demi should disown that miserable, ungrateful little shit and cut off all monies.  See if she can get a job and work her way thru college on her own.  Bet she’s die of shame if she had to work at McDees flipping burgers like many of us did in our yoot.

And then there’s an item (again) found on Red Ken.

Actress Demi Moore, 49, has turned for comfort to friends in Scientology after her husband Ashton Kutcher, 34, ran off with a younger woman.
She has received little solace during her annus horribilis from daughter Scout Willis, 20, a student at posh Brown University, Boston, who confides callously on Twitter: ‘I hate capitalism like I hate my parents but they both serve me so well.’
As King Lear says: ‘How sharper than a serpent’s tooth it is/To have a thankless child!’

Labour’s mayoral candidate in the capital, Ken Livingstone, informs BBC London: ‘When I was leader of the GLC I said to Mrs Thatcher we needed broadband linking every home and city in the country.’
How prescient, considering the GLC was abolished four years before broadband became available in 1990. Indeed, the term wasn’t even in general use until 1996. 

EPHRAIM HARDCASTLE in the Mail

This one comes from one of my favorite people in the press.

Richard Littlejohn
Daily Mail

Ken Wright, from Manchester, went to B&Q to buy a barbecue gas cylinder. He was asked for photo ID.
When he asked why, he was told it had been company policy since Islamist terrorists tried to blow up Glasgow Airport using a vehicle packed with bottled gas.
He produced his company ID card and his Water Authority Approved Contractor card, but both were rejected. Had he got his passport?
‘Like I always bring my passport to shop at B&Q,’ said Ken. Eventually they accepted his bus pass — and Ken left the store ‘fully equipped to blow up an airport’.

(B&Q is Home Depot or Lowes in the USA)

But for really silly stuff this has to be a favorite.
See if you don’t approve of this one for a Moonbat award.

Girl, 14, banned from buying Glee stationery because ‘lethal’ pencil sharpener ‘could be used as a weapon’

Her 18-year-old brother had to buy stationery set for his younger sister
By DAILY MAIL REPORTER

A schoolgirl was refused a Glee stationery set at a shop in case she used the pencil sharpener as a weapon.

Emily Davies, 14, tried to buy the kit based on the hit TV series that contained a pen, pencil, ruler, rubber and a sharpener from a 99p Store.
But she was stunned when she got to the check-out and was told by the cashier she couldn’t buy the innocent item because she was under the age of 18.

The female member of staff explained that the sharpener could be deemed as ‘lethal’ or ‘dangerous’ in the wrong hands.

Emily had to ask her 18-year-old brother, Mikey, to show his driving licence to the shop assistant to prove he was old enough to purchase the school set.

The traditional sharpener is covered in a round purple plastic encasing that has the words ‘Super Gleek’ on.

Their mother, Susan Davies, branded the exchange ‘ridiculous’.

Emily, from Poole, Dorset, had gone to the 99p store in Boscombe, Bournemouth, to buy the stationery set.

She said: ‘I went to buy the set and the cashier said I need your ID because it’s got lethal objects in it.

‘My brother was stood next to me and he said ‘I don’t get it’, and she said ‘it’s got a pencil sharpener, it could be dangerous.’

‘I have got stuff like that before for school and it was fine, I can’t really imagine someone over 18 wanting something like a Glee stationery set.

‘It was a bit unnecessary.’

Mikey said: ‘The woman asked Emily ‘have you got any ID’ and she said no and told her that she was 14.

‘I showed her my ID and I bought it instead.

‘It was ridiculous. The woman saw me take the item out of Emily’s hand, pay for it and then give it back to Emily.’

A spokesman for the national chain of 99p Stores said that they had no such age policy in place regarding pencil sharpeners, but defended the actions of the cashier in question.

He said: ‘Pencil sharpeners are not an age restricted product and if we have refused a sale on this occasion we would rather that our staff are over cautious rather than under cautious.’

  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
