The Patron Saint Of Fireworks

If you’re at a large fireworks display and something goes awry, Saint Barbara’s the one to call for protection.  In fact, it might be a good idea to pray to her before the show to avoid the rush.

In the 2nd century, Barbara was the daughter of a rich pagan named Dioscorus who kept her locked in a tower to keep her chaste for the marriage of his choice. But Barbara had other ideas.  She nixed Dad’s pick for Bachelor #1 and worse, she became a Christian.

Her Father was not too pleased with this nonsense and drew his sword to kill her.  Miraculously the tower wall opened and Barbara was transported to a mountain gorge filled with sheep and two shepards.  One of the shepards turned her back over to her Father and immediately came to a bad end. He turned to stone and his flock became a swarm of locusts! (Try selling those at the Sheep Fair!)

Barbara’s Father dragged her before the prefect of the province, Martinianus, who had her cruelly tortured and condemned to death by beheading. Since her Father was still pissed off, he got to lop off her head himself!  However, as punishment for executing his own daughter, (here come the fireworks) he was struck by lightning on the way home and his body was consumed by flames. It’s said Barbara’s tomb became the site of explosive miracles. Really.

Dancing Without Dollars

Sunday, February 26th, 2017

Women really love to dance. And I just don’t mean ballerinas, strippers, belly-dancers and bimbos.  I mean everyday lawyers, nurses, stay-at-home Moms and just about all of them.  Go to any club or party and women will be dancing with each other and sometimes even alone.

But most men would rather go to the dentist than go dancing (except a few who dance with other men).  You can find the guys leaning on the bar or in a group of their buds at a party.

Why?

A recent study stated that women love to dance because it “frees” them of inhibiting physical behavior in socially-acceptable ways – in a safe environment.  They can rhythmically slink, jiggle, step, bounce, gyrate, spin, twirl, pendulate, shake their asses, and make sexual moves WITHOUT over-exciting alpha males who just want to see them waving their feet at the ceiling.

What A Coincidence!

No Vital Organs Hit

Dante Autillo shot a nail into his head and barely noticed. The 32-year old woodworker from Oakland Park Illinois, was in his shop when he accidentally scratched his head with his nail gun and fired the 5 and 1/2” projectile into his skull.

Thinking he cut his scalp,  Dante went into the house where his fiancé Gail Glaenzer cleaned the wound with hydrogen peroxide.  He then went about his business even shoveling snow!  The next day, however, the woodworker felt nauseated so Gail insisted he have the wound checked at an emergency room.

After a quick x-ray, doctors were horrified to see the clear picture of a nail over 5-inches long embedded in the man’s brain.  They immediately made arrangements with a larger hospital to perform emergency surgery. Still, Dante never lost consciousness nor felt any unusual pain.  In fact, on the ambulance ride to the second hospital, he posted the picture above to his Facebook account so his friends could see his “brainchild.”

After a two-hour operation, Dante remained in satisfactory condition.  He made a necklace out of his removed nail.

There are some people who say Dante may not be the smartest guy in the world – but when it comes to brains, I say he nailed it.
