We Interrupt Your Halloween-ing to Bring You: Rudolph The Red Nose Pork Chop


Fox 8 in Greensboro NC brings you this hard-hitting news story:

It might not be worth as much as a grilled cheese sandwich said to bear the image of the Virgin Mary, but a North Carolina woman believes she's found a well-known Christmas character in her pork chop.

Sue Church stopped by the FOX8 studios on Tuesday morning to show us a pork chop that resembles Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.

Some have suggested the meat actually resembles the antler-wearing dog in How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Oh boy … I can’t wait to see what other half-eaten food items Sue Church has in store for the holidays!!

Things I learned from ‘Paranormal Activity’



****** SPOILER ALERT ******

I just saw Paranormal Activity yesterday and it proved to be quite the learning tool.  Here is what I learned:

  1. You might want to ask your significant other about their history of demonic possessions before moving in together.
  2. There are people with Parkinson's disease that could hold the camera better than the actors in the film.
  3. Apparently Big Bird is a demon.
  4. If your girlfriend talks in a high-pitched, monotone voice she is probably possessed.
  5. If your high-pitched, monotone girlfriend says thing's are all right, they aren't.
Regardless, it appears this movie scaring lots of dollars out of everyone's pockets. Perhaps the 2:30 mark of this grainy, poor quality video of the last 5 minutes of the film best explains why:

Twins Study Shows Effects of Smoking, Sun & Stress


Here's a reminder not to smoke or get too much sun: The results of a study following the effects of smoking, sun & stress on various sets of twins is pretty evident in the picture above.

Jeanne and Susan

Age: 61

Jeanne (left) is the twin who commented that her sister looks “ten years older” — in fact, the researchers upped that to an 11-and-a-quarter-year edge. The reasons for Susan’s condition are that she smoked for 16 years of her life, sunbathes, and weighs 15 pounds less. Since her 20s, Susan (right) has spent as much time as she could in the sun (she has plenty of opportunity on Florida’s east coast, where she moved more than a decade ago). Jeanne, meanwhile, has aimed for “as little exposure as possible.” Besides causing Susan’s dark, patchy discoloration and age spots, UV light also reduces skin’s elasticity, increasing wrinkles and deepening creases, Guyuron says.
It would also help to get your hair done before getting your picture taken, too.
