Friday Follies 3.6.09

March 6, 2009

Tis that time once again when we take stock of the inane and foolish put upon us by those forced to navigate life with an amount of gray matter just slightly larger than that found in your average toad.

And speaking of toads, do you know the woman on the left? No, you probaly don’t, but unlike Nigel Haskett (the McDonald’s employee stuck with 300 grand in medical bills because McDonald’s turned their back on him), you don’t really need to either. Except maybe for a little self-appreciation on a really, really bad day. For by knowing the toad on the left on one of those really, really bad days, you can always look in the mirror and be thankful that you’re at least not that toad.

Her name is Latreasa Goodman, she’s from Fort Pierce Florida and she really, really, really needs a brain. After paying for her 10 piece McNuggets meal at the local McDonald’s she was told they were out, offered a substitute but not a refund and then the fun began. Instead of doing what a rational, sane, “non-victim” inbred idiot would do and just go home and take it up with McDonald’s corporate, THIS toad calls 911! And not just once, but THREE times.

According to police, the cashier on duty offered Goodman a larger portion of food for the same price to make up for the Mcnugget flubit but Goodman got irate.
In her own words:
“I called 911 because I couldn’t get a refund, and I wanted my McNuggets,”…and…‘this is an emergency, my McNuggets are an emergency,’”

A “real” emergency is that this woman has somehow not yet been “Darwinized” and is still walking, breathing and polluting the gene pool.

BUT, in her defence there may be other evil forces at play. is reporting that this is the same area where a man called 911 last month because the local Burger King was out of lemonade. Is it they are really so stupid as to not know what 911 is for or that their feeble brains can only remember three digits?
Where’s My Nuggets Ronald?

In other Follies:
Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Donald Kohn testified before the Senate Banking Committee and admitted: “No one was minding the whole company and looking at how things interacted, and whether the whole company would, under some circumstances, put the financial system at risk,”.
Really Don, you think? Glad you finally admit it but you’re about Two Trillion too late.
The Obvious

West Virginia state legislature Jeff Eldridge is a lawmaker on a mission. He’s so concerned about society’s emphasis on beauty over brains that he as actually proposed a bill that would ban the sale of Barbie (and others like her) dolls in the “Montani semper liberi” state.
“I just hate the image that we give to our kids that if you’re beautiful, you’re beautiful and you don’t have to be smart,” Eldridge told West Virginia Media. “I’d like to send a message to not only our children but parents and educators that let’s push education over the importance of beauty.”
Yes, Mr. Eldridge we all know at least one of those “pretty people” who gets through life on looks alone, but just because you don’t have looks does not mean you have a brain. (See toad of the week picture at top of page)
He’s GOT To Be Kidding, (But He’s Not)

As always, have a great weekend, and I’ll see ya round the corner come Monday.
