    Oversized body causes fire at Henrico crematory
    The fire at Southside Cremation Services, in the 1600 block of Crump Street, started shortly after noon and was extinguished by Richmond and Henrico County fire crews by 12:43, according to the Henrico County Division of Fire.

    Manager Jerry L. Hendrix Sr. said Wednesday afternoon that he’s received a go-ahead to resume cremating an 800-pound cadaver that created excessive heat and oil during a cremation.

    “There was no damage to the body that would not be normal; it remained within the retort and we are about to proceed with the remainder of the cremation,” Hendrix said.

    800 pounds?What are you people eating out there?

    Marijuana Stores Marketing Gentler Products for ‘Novice’ Users

    Marijuana sellers are trying to grow their consumer base by marketing products that “impart a milder buzz” to people who are inexperienced in marijuana us
    New on the shelves in Colorado’s recreational pot shops is the “Rookie Cookie,” a marijuana-infused confection that contains 10 milligrams of marijuana’s psychoactive ingredient. That’s a low enough dose that most adults wouldn’t be too impaired to drive a car.

    Then there’s a new marijuana-infused soda that’s 15 times weaker than the company’s best-known soda. The Dixie One watermelon cream soda contains 5 milligrams of THC – half of what the state considers a serving size – and is billed as “great for those who are new to THC or don’t like to share.”

    They’re all nuts in Colorado
    (with the exception of Grunt,of course)

    Couple Had Sex In Back Seat Of Police Cruiser

    Duo convicted of lewd and lascivious conduct
    OCTOBER 8–After being arrested, a Wisconsin couple had sex in the back of a police cruiser, an encounter that was interrupted when a cop heard the woman “begin to moan loudly” while her legs were “touching the ceiling” of the vehicle, according to a criminal complaint.
    While subsequently transporting the suspects, Deputy Adam Zahn “observed Travis lay onto of Heather in the backseat.” The cop then saw “Heather’s legs go up touching the ceiling and heard her begin to moan loudly.”

    Zahn stopped the cruiser, opened the rear door, and saw “Travis onto of Heather having sexual intercourse.” The complaint does not indicate whether the lovebirds were handcuffed (though it seems likely).

    Moms Spooked By Too Sexy Halloween Costume Options

    Zurbriggen said a woman being forced to buy a man’s costume was “ridiculous.”

    “It tells women you are either sexy or you are not a woman,” she said, adding that many women operate in the role of police officer, nurse or maid in real life every day.

    “These are really stripper costumes,” Zurbriggen said. And while there’s nothing wrong with pushing boundaries on Halloween, she said, trick-or-treating with the kids isn’t the time most moms want to do that.–abc-news-parenting.html

    Suspect Stabs Utah Restaurant Employee Who Refused To Lend Him A Pen
    The 32-year-old Utah man was in a Mexican restaurant early yesterday morning when he asked an employee if he could borrow a pen “to get a girl’s phone number.”
    But when the Beto’s Restaurant worker declined Davis’s request, a verbal argument ensued inside the Salt Lake City eatery.

    I dunno….seems reasonable to me.

    Malala, a 17-year-old student and education activist, is the youngest-ever Nobel winner. She was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman two years ago for insisting that girls also have the right to an education.

    Most of the time these Nobel prizes are a farce.this time they got it right.

    Fan With Tom Brady Helmet Tattooed On His Head Is Jailed On Felony Narcotics Charge

    St. Petersburg cops last month busted Victor Thompson, 46, for possession of Spice, the synthetic marijuana. Thompson allowed police to search his pockets after he was spotted trespassing outside a community center.

    When questioned by police, Thompson said that he purchased the “Master Kush” Spice “from a black male for $15” at a downtown park, according to a police report. Thompson reportedly told cops that he did not know Spice was illegal in Florida, claiming that it was “still legal in New Hampshire,” his home state.

    Spiders force family from of upscale Missouri home

    WELDON SPRING, Mo. (AP) — A family was driven from their suburban St. Louis home by thousands of venomous spiders that fell from the ceiling and oozed from the walls
    She told St. Louis television station KMOV-TV in 2012 the spiders “started bleeding out of the walls,” and at least two pest control companies were unable to eradicate the infestation.

    Cool!Now we’re consorting with the hoi polloi.


  16. I’ve been saving a few things since Pete announced (yesterday!) this thread was a-comin’.

    To start with, c/o I don’t recall some commenter somewhere I suppose

  17. When I was a boy my momma would send me down to a corner store with $1 and I’d come back with 5 potatoes, 2 loaves of bread, 3 bottles of milk, a hunk of cheese, a box of tea and 6 eggs.

    You can’t do that now… Too many [darn] security cameras.

      You’re a breath of fresh air,Mindful.I thank you for it.


    • chrissythehyphenated

      I was at a deli once when the man next to me griped about the cost of his dill pickle compared to when he was a boy. I asked him how much he made per hour back then as compared to now and he left grinning about how cheaply he’d gotten a pickle. 🙂


      • When I was a little kid I used to roll my eyes whenever my dad would go off on one of his rambling discourses about how much a nickel could buy when he was a little kid. I always knew that when the day came that I started looking at prices and thinking (or, God forbid, saying) “A buck and a half for that? When I was a kid, you could buy one of those for a quarter!” that that would mean I was definitely in my declining years.


  18. In 1967, the U.S. Coast Guard found a crate containing seven inflated yellow balloons floating off the coast of Florida. The crate was marked “made in U.S.S.R.” and was addressed to “The institute of mineral resources of Cuba.”

    Why were the Soviets shipping seven balloons to Cuba? Why were the balloons inflated? How did the crate end up floating in the ocean? As far as I know, these questions remain unanswered.

  19. Oops. Used square-brackets instead of angled in my previous comment. If anyone with the Power wants to change ’em, go ahead.

    Over on Ace of Spades, with its primitive last-millennium software, the few HTML codes use bracket encoding instead of angle. You can tell Ace commenters by the way they leave square-bracket tags other places. I’ve even caught myself using them on my own posts on the website.


  20. Pete, I know you often mine Liberal Logic 101. Here’s a nugget you may’ve missed or just passed up.


    • Pistol Pete

      I do go to liberal logic,but I don’t use an awful lot of their material only because I have so much I’ve split the photo folder I keep my funny stuff down into animals,puns,redneck stuff,nostalgia,seasonal,eecards and grumpy cat.I’ll probably do a redneck pictorial next week.You won’t believe how much there is.(well,you probably would)

      I. Love. It. !!!!! My Marine met President Bush once at the White House. She was promoted just a few days before the visit so had to get her dress blues upgraded in a huge hurry. When she realized one of her rank badges had been sewn on 1/4″ crooked, she was so upset, she nearly kicked in a door. Afterwards, I asked her, “How was it?” “Mom, he thanked us for coming to see him, because he’d had a really bad morning and getting to meet some of the troops always made him feel better.” I looked up his schedule; he’d been at a Democrat meeting that morning.


  21. RIP SNL funny gal Jan Hooks.

    When Milady was young, her family and the Dunns were close neighbors, and the families still are close, even if time has driven these Chicago families in different directions. You don’t lose affection for your oldest friends.

    We loyally watched the seasons when Nora was on SNL. In fact, it’s why we bought our first VCR. Nora may be uber-liberal (W Side Chicago upbringing like that which Milady had to grow out of) but she’s funny, and she had a good run on SNL; however, she was severely underutilized. The Good Old Boys writers group (think: Franken) didn’t think much of the women’s funny ideas, so we heard. But occasionally, the ladies could sneak a skit past the boys. One of the recurring bits that Nora and Jan Hooks did was the over-the-top nightclub singers The Sweeny Sisters.

    Here’s the link for the TMZ article on Jan Hooks’ death. The top photo is of the Sweeny Sisters. They also included a poor-quality but classic video of the Sweeny Sisters at home for Christmas, from the great episode that featured Bill (Capt Kirk) Shatner. The pair put a lot of work into their totally-nutty duets. Alas, the video seems to have been removed already. However, I tracked down another copy online. Watch it before it’s removed, too? It’s not YouTube, so I’m not going to try to embed it. Here’s the link.–39061.html
