Norway Getting Weird

First up is the story of two guys who got busted at work surfing porn and got fired. So they sue, and it gets all the way up to the supreme court, which says they were wrongfully terminated, and awarded them $40,000 each. That’s quite a precedent.

Next, apparently a woman was arrested and sentenced to nine months in prison for orally raping a man who had passed out at a party.

The 31-year-old man fell asleep on a sofa at a party in January last year and told the court in the western city of Bergen he woke to find the 23-year-old woman was having oral sex with him.

Once she finally gets out, I’m betting she gets a LOT of party invitations.

Talk About Your Losers

Guy wants sex Guy sees what he thinks is a prostitute, but is actually an undercover police officer. Guy has no money. Guy offers steaks for payment. Guy goes to jail. Guy gets his photo posted on the Internet.

Guy is later offered tube steak by other inmate. Other inmate doesn’t take no for an answer.

And You Thought You Were Having A Bad Day

This guy had a worse one:

On arrival police discovered that the man had caused his own injury by accidentally discharging a firearm into his genitalia.


UPDATE: This guy isn’t doing much better…

That Looks Better

I fixed the referrers section in my sidebar that was causing the sidebar to spill over into the main frame.

All is well again.

Because There Just Weren’t Enough Reasons Not To Like San Francisco

Now there’s this:

On May 4, the Epicenter Gallery in San Francisco will become the site of the world?s first ?Whore College,? to teach wannabe working girls and guys the ins and outs of prostitution.

The kinky college is the brainchild of prostitute and sex activist Carol Leigh and will offer classes in titillating topics like ?Beauty Standards and Sex Work,? ?Do-It- Yourself Web Cam? and ?Safer Oral Sex Techniques.?

Leigh ? who calls herself the ?scarlet harlot? ? claims there?s been a big demand for sex worker studies ever since the dot com bust of the late 1990s caused many Silicon Valley employees to become sex workers instead.

She figures the ?Whore College? is the best way to lay down the facts to aspiring prostitutes.

Well, isn’t that nice? I hear it’s right in between a bomb-making school and a cat burglar school. And what if you can’t afford the “tuition”? That gives the phrase “working your way through school” a whole new meaning.

Yeah, That’ll Work

So say you’re the superintendent of schools, and one of the schools that falls under your supervision has a few bomb threats called in. What to do?

Well, if you’re an idiot, you ban any kind of bag at the school for the rest of the year.

Yeah, make the students lug their entire classload of books around. That’ll show them.

I’m guessing the superintendent went to public school.

Call It A Hunch

But I think’s this guy’s chances of survival are pretty slim…

He's a goner...

And Now, A Song

Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday dear blog,
Happy Birthday to you.

Yes, I have now been blogging for an entire year. How about that? I rolled over the 50,000 visitor mark earlier this week. I guess that’s not too bad for the first year.

Now, on with year two.

A Question

Bill, what the hell IS that thing in the picture?


Possibly The Most Painful Few Minutes Of TV You’ll Ever Watch

This kid just wasn’t having a good day.

Boom goes the dynamite!

UPDATE: I’m not sure who’s worse, that sportscaster, or this weather man.
