"Those breasts were lethal weapons,"

"Those breasts were lethal weapons," he told reporters. Greene's father, George, won't specify the amount they are suing for, but claims that it isn't about the money. 'Mind-boggling drama,' indeed! (via FC)

I really tried not to laugh, but "I thought he liked it in there." got me.

Look at the sidebar. Weekly World News = probably not true.

Yeah that comment got me too, it's tragic comedy.

I'm sorry, probably not true? Optamystic, you're being a bit generous, I think.

"We all thought he loved being in that gal's chest.

"Who could have known that when he was waving his hands around, he was signaling for help?"

With quotes like that I don't care if it's true.

Ah, and what a way to go...

Language Is A Virus. This is as good an example as any. Whether this is true or not (and I didn't major in the sciences in college but I can't see how this is physically even plausible), there will be people who read this and accept it as true at face value. It will sit somewhere inside their skull as a fact, and they'll tell this story to their friends and strangers in bars and pubs all over the world, and others will believe it too without looking into the facts.

I bow to the absurdity of humanity.

The press is really milking this one. Making mountains out of molehills if you ask me.

Um. Sorry.

Notably, stripclublist, which has entries for 6300 strip clubs around the world, has no listing for ANY club named Pretty Kitty, let alone one located in a town named Geneva. (Geneva, IL has one called Club Exotica; and Lake Geneva, WI has the rather famous -- and prosperous -- Sugar Shack.)

Alternatively, we could just ask Den Beste.

It's officially a hoax (thanks PWA_Badboy).
