  • Feedback from a Lemoore Union High School student: "my opinion on your stupid humor is very retarded" I once went to a baseball game with a friend, and we had the privilege of sitting behind the stupidest eight year old on the planet. He did many stupid things that day, but the stupidest was when
    he attempted to do the wave. Now, I want to stress that his technique was fine. No doubt about it. Hewill grow up to be a fine practitioner of the wave. The only problem was that he was holding a big
    plate of nachos and forgot to put down the nachos before performing the wave. So the result was that his head and shirt (plus portions of my friend) ended up completely covered with nachos. His father,meanwhile, just sighed.

  • I'm not sure if this is stupid or just plain weird, but this weekend in LA, you can see the film Microcosm. It's a film twenty years in the making that "stars ants, bees, ladybugs, butterflies, and snails" and "provides a unique look at entomological eroticism." Yep, bug porn. I must have missed this trend. I wonder if there's a USENET news group about it.
  • I was riding a bus in LA. (Wait. No. That's not the stupid part.) The bus pulled up next to an armored truck.

She then looked under the letter I on a chart of the state abbreviations to see if Italy was listed between Iowa and Kansas. On the plus side, she did seem to know the alphabet.
  • A college basketball announcer: "We'd like to remind some of our viewers that we will be leaving us momentarily to bring you another game." Wow. The technology they use these days is amazing. Fox Sports announcer Pat Summeral during the Super Bowl: "If only faces could talk. . ."

  • And now a story about The Kissing Machine from the Fort Wayne Journal-Gazette. This is a new machine that will cause a tingling sensation when you kiss that special someone (or anyone else for that matter). The article describes how it works: "Connect an RCA cord from The Kissing Machine to your stereo and pop in some music with a good beat; insert one 9-volt battery into the back of the device; turn it on and adjust the pleasure dial to your favorite tingling setting on each love handle;
    have each person pick up the metal love handles and begin kissing." The tingling sensation is caused by the beats in the music. ("If the music is too loud, the sensation may become too intense.") But of course it's not for everyone: "People who are pregnant, have a pacemaker or heart condition should not use The Kissing Machine. Users also should avoid touching your partner's teeth with your tongue or teeth because it may produce a shock." "From our very first kiss, there was just this spark between us . . . ."
  • On St. Patrick's Day, reader Pat Taha ran across a friend who was wearing a large green carnation. Pat asked her if she was really entitled to wear it and she replied, "Oh yes. . . all my ancestors were from Scotland."
