Bad hair day becomes a pay day
Most of us have suffered through a bad hair day at one time or another. You know what I’m talking about here, don’t you? It’s one of those days when your ‘do – doesn’t.
Better watch where you step
It looks like a court in Leonia, New Jersey has stepped right in a big pile of … doggie poop. At the very least, it must decide a case regarding Rover and good old #2.

Just The Way The Cookie Crumbles

Stupid lawsuit over look alike vehicles
This has to be one for the books! First, I recall the 1946 Studebaker and all of Bob Hope’s jokes about not being able to tell which way it was headed. But at the very least, when I was a kid, when I was a teen, and then when I was an adult and even entering middle-age (from which I refuse to emerge) we could all tell American cars from foreign cars, and we could tell one American car from another. Today I found out that General Motors sued Avanti Motor Company because its Studebaker SUV looked too much like the GM Hummer.

What a web we weave
A Georgia inmate is suing the prison where she is serving a sentence for burglary and aggravated assault because she says the facility is infested with spiders.
