Forget About That Corny Corner-Ribbon's Drivel! The Real Secret is HERE Indeed - not over there!

Looking back at 2005...

Ringing in a new year always makes one prone to look back fondly (or... not so fondly) at the year that has just ended... The most memorable events of the past year are always the most unusual as well...
Unusual as the following were in 2005:
"An 86-year-old Charlotte, N.C., woman spent two nights in the city lockup after police said she called 911 dispatchers 20 times in a little more than 30 minutes to complain about service at a pizza parlor. Dorothy Densmore told dispatchers the shop refused to deliver a pie to her apartment. Densmore wanted the workers arrested. Instead, police arrested her."
No pizza for granny tonight...
"Kenyan councilman Godwin Kipkemoi Chepkurgor says he offered Bill Clinton 40 goats and 20 cows for his daughter's hand in marriage five years ago. He's still awaiting an answer."
Chelsea was flattered, I am sure...
Maybe the next method would be more impressive for Miss Clinton's taste...
"A 38-year-old Oregon man wearing a gasoline-soaked cape set himself on fire before getting down on one knee and asking his longtime girlfriend to marry him. About 100 people gathered to watch Todd Grannis perform the flaming stunt for Malissa Kusiek, who said yes."
Yes - the Toddster here really has the hots for his Malissa...
"In Muscatine, Iowa, Dean L. Wooten was fired for greeting Wal-Mart customers with a computer-generated photo in which he appeared to be naked _ except for a carefully placed Wal-Mart bag. Wooten reportedly told customers the store was cutting costs and the bag was the company's new uniform. A supervisor told him to stop showing the photo after customers complained. He was canned when he displayed the photo again."
The morale of this story: never question company policy.
"The Easter Bunny wasn't laughing this year. Bryan Johnson, who portrayed the holiday rabbit at a mall in Bay City, Mich., says he was pummeled in an unprovoked attack by a 12-year-old boy.
"He just started hitting," Johnson said. Johnson suffered a bloody nose but kept his cool because he figured it was inappropriate for the Easter Bunny to battle back."
If they did this to the Easter Bunny in 2005... I shudder at the thought of what they'll do to him (it?) in 2006... and I wouldn't want to be in Santa's shoes either... of course!

Those are some odd things that happend in 2005.

Poor Easter Bunny.

I hope this year will be much better for us all!

God Bless You Luce!
Oh... I am sure stranger things have happened in 2005... they were simply not reported either in that particular "quick survey of the year" article... or in any "odd bits" type of news-reporting at all!
