OMG, nothing could be worse than being a relative of a mass murderer BUT when you try to use CrowdFunding to pay for your ruined wedding a line has been leapt over. Amber Roof, the sister of the man who cold bloodily murdered nine people in Charleston, has set up a GoFundMe page to help pay for her dream wedding and honeymoon. She is blaming the media for ruining everything (no mention of her brother) after they published details of her wedding which was to take place 4 days after her brother walked into a church, mingled with a bible study group before shooting them.
UPDATE : After a backlash the funding page has been taken down.
An artist is about to put her art work on display in Wisconsin. Called “Eggs Benedict”, the work made entirely out of 17,000 coloured condoms, bears an uncanny resemblance to retired Pope, Benedict. The work is a protest about comments he made a few years back claiming the use of contraception in Africa could increase the spread of AIDS. A bit late honey on your protest!
People can be so stupid that sometimes you wish bad things happen to stupid people. Unfortunately for this dumbass, the croc must have realized she was a friggin idiot and just snapped at her stupidity. Come on croc, you could have at least taken a chunk out of her foot.
PSST She has been banned from the zoo
Attention, anyone interested in a slightly used country consisting of 2 mainland peninsulas and thousands of islands? Going rate at present is about $1.2 billion. The up side is , the country has a uber amount of history (mostly in ruins) and beautiful views, the bummer is the 10 million or so occupants don’t like paying taxes, rent or debts.
Greece has gone and done the unforgivable, proven that the whole Euro experiment was never going to work ….for some countries. Unable to pay their whopping loan, courtesy of International Monetary Fund, they now find themselves abandoned by the Euro countries, without a brass razoo to their name. Awks. The government might have to dust off the drachma and refloat the worthless currency in order to function. They have already ordered an economic lockdown with banks shut and withdrawals limited to €60 a day at ATMs. But it is all a bit futile as most ATMs are as dry as a day old rusk.
Remember, Tama the cat who saved a small Japanese railway line from closure? If not, read this . Well, sadly Tama passed away this week. It has been estimated that since the feline had been station master at the Kishi stop the railway company had made over a $1 billion thanks to tourism and merchandise sales. Over the 10 years that Tama worked at the stop, people flocked (approx 60,000 a year) to the small out of the way line to catch a glimpse of this train loving moggie. As news spread that Tama wasn’t well, even the Railway Company president went to visit their number one draw card. Over 3,000 people attended the massive funeral over the weekend for the beloved cat that saved a railway and a township …oh and what the heck…humanity!!!!
OK Loons, if you step back in time to 2011, I wrote a post about a young musical prodigy named Chooka Parker. He had this amazing ability to make up classical music on the spot and was , at the time, a contestant on Australia’s Got Talent. I must admit I wasn’t too kind . Anywho, that post continues to attract fans (and some angst against me LOL) so I thought I would give an update on Chooka. He has his own YouTube channel where you can listen to his music…. this one is my favourite.
Awks to be CNN. During a gay pride parade the American news network repeatedly focused on a black flag amongst a sea of rainbow colours believing it was an ISIS flag. Turns out is was a black flag with crude drawings of…wait for it…sex toys. Whoopsie.
