Today marks four years since GraceLessLand was reconstituted here on WordPress.com! My how time flies when you’re being stupid!
UN calls for moratorium on SMD (sauces of mass destruction). President Obama says he was unaware of the deadly condiment until he saw it on the news. Karl Rove calls revelation the biggest disaster in his lifetime. House GOP vows to investigate the administration’s involvement with sending cilantro to Mexico City.
As per our tradition here at GraceLessLand, we take April 1st off and enjoy everyone else’s lies and tomfoolery.
The cruise ship Carnival Triumph was towed to docks in Mobile, Alabama after a fire disabled it during a cruise in the Gulf of Mexico. Passengers and crew were without electricity, running water, or working toilets for several days. People were reduced to defecating into baggies.
“It was horrible. Horrible,” said passenger Janie Esparza. “The bathroom facilities were horrible and we could not flush toilets. No electricity and our rooms were in total darkness. Honestly, think that this ship should have ever sailed out.” When asked if she would ever take another cruise Esparza shook her head. “No way! Our travel agent feels really bad about this, though, and has agreed to send us on another vacation – I have the tickets right here…um, where’s ‘Syria’?”
This WordPress incarnation of GraceLessLand published its 1,000th post yesterday. And it seems like only about ten months ago it was 500.
I think the pace is going to slow here – perhaps to one post per day instead of two, or even three a week. There are many other things to be done other than making fun of other things….
A Florida man collapsed and died after winning a cockroach and worm eating contest. The Broward County sheriff’s office says 32-year-old Edward Archbold collapsed outside the Ben Siegel Reptile Store in Deerfield Beach, Florida, where the contest was held.
Authorities are awaiting autopsy results to learn the cause of Archbold’s death. “It was the damndest thing,” said one sheriff’s officer. “One minute the guy is fine and gulping-down cockroaches and worms, and the next he’s dead. It’s tough to figure.”
Now and then you just have to get down on your knees, raise your hands to the sky, and in your best Charlton Heston growl scream “DAMN YOU ALL TO HELL!”
Authorities are investigating the death of an Oregon farmer who was apparently eaten by his own hogs. When the man did not return from the morning hog feeding, a family member went to look for him. All they found in the pig pen were his dentures, a few body parts, and some tight-lipped pigs.
“We’ve got our suspicions” said a police investigator assigned to the case. “One of the hogs was heard saying ‘it’s him or us!’ shortly before the incident.”
