Friday Frivol (and OTP): When News Attacks

Filed under: Frivol,Random Linkfests — Random Yak @ 9:55 am on September 7, 2007

Some days you fisk news.  Other days … news fisk you!

Each morning I review not one but three odd news websites, searching the globe to bring you something odd, bizarre and probably not headlining anyone else’s blog.  After all, that’s what yaks do best.  (A sad, sad commentary on my life, but I digress…)

Every morning to date (or at least every morning I’ve looked) at least one of the three offered not only good blogging fodder, but also at least one story too odd, too bizarre, and far too random to pass up.  (Often involving snakes and some mode of transportation.)

But this morning, for the first time in blogging history, every story disqualified itself within a single sentence.  Some proved too lewd, others not funny.  A couple others proved more gross than humorous (and I mean that in the most lunch-spoiling way).

So, to misquote Shel Silverstein, “all the frivol I can find/I’ve had to make myself.”

A dangerous proposition, to be sure.

Those who blog can help me out by linking and tracking back – consider this your open trackback post for the weekend of September 7-9, and into the first of the week.
