1950’s Beauty Pageant

Going To Prison Naturally

Tuesday, March 18th, 2014

TV Infomercial King Kevin Trudeau, 50, has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for bilking suckers with his natural self-health books. He sold more than 850,000 copies of “The Weight Loss Cure They Don’t Want You to Know About” alone.

U.S. District Judge Ronald Guzman said that for decades Trudeau “steadfastly attempted to cheat others for his own personal gain.”

Trudeau apologized, saying he was a changed man.

He didn’t say if he was changed by his books’ natural health ideas or the fact he’s facing 10-years in the Crossbar Hotel.

“This Is Your Captain Freaking”

Tuesday, March 18th, 2014

Have a fear of flying?  It probably wasn’t helped much in March of 2012 if you were on JetBlue Flight 191 from New York to Las Vegas.

About 3-hours into the flight, Captain Clayton Osbon began behaving erratically with the controls of the large, commercial jet. He then went to the mens room and came out screaming at the passengers:  “They’re going to take us down!” and “There’s a bomb on board! Al-Queda-Iraq-Afghanistan!” and “Better start saying your prayers!”

By this time the copilot had locked the cabin’s door – which enraged the pilot further – and called the control tower for instructions.  Passengers and crew members tackled the 6’4” pilot tying him with seat belt extenders and their own belts.  Once the plane landed, he was carried off by security personnel.

JetBlue is noted for its relatively inexpensive fares and a few free perks.  Who knew the cost of a ticket also included entertainment and group activities?

Nuts Crack Case

Tuesday, March 18th, 2014

The mystery surrounding Malaysian Flight 370 has brought out over 2-dozen countries searching hemispheres around half the world. Personally, I wouldn’t hold my breath for the outcome of this tragedy whether it’s mechanical, criminal, or weather.  But when the aviation industry tilts, all the nuts roll out of the sky with their own theories.  Here are a few of my favorites:

1.  Courtney Love Found It!

“I’m no expert but up close this does look like a plane and an oil slick,” Love wrote with the photo she uploaded to her Facebook page on Monday. “It’s like a mile away Pulau Perak, where they ‘last’ tracked it. 5°39’08.5”N 98°50’38.0”E but what do I know?” Solved.  Case closed.

2.  Rush of Flatulence Says It Was Shot Down!

Rush Limbaugh’s theory fits nicely into his right-wing, paranoid hysteria.  However he’s yet to work out a few holes in his idea like: which country? For what purpose? How? And how come the attack wasn’t recorded on sophisticated aviation monitoring devices? Go sit back down now, Rush.

3.  UFO’s Snatched It!

Aliens have certainly upped their game since they crashed in Roswell, New Mexico over 50-years ago.  Tired of sucking up bored housewives and guests of the Jerry Springer show, they’ve now beamed up an entire airliner to study.  This theory falters a bit when you consider any aliens who’ve mastered universe-traveling would have little use for an antiquated, clunky, earth plane.

4. The Lord Works in Mysterious Ways!

God’s in on it now?  God can fly – he really doesn’t need a Malaysian airplane to get around.

Mysteries like this always bring out wackos.  50-years after the John Kennedy assassination there are STILL some nuts who believe the Warren Commission conclusion.
