    Laughed out loud and snorted (one of my less attactive traits) while reading this post.

    The town where I live also not small, but the newspaper is ridiculous. I actually boycott our local paper and prefer to know nothing about what is going on in my community. One of my favorite headlines was…Haircut prices increasing. Front page. I’m quite sure there were much more important things going on in the world.

    Thanks for the giggle snort. Also living without kids.

    I also enjoy reading small town papers for laughs. Especially the “police blotters”. In Harford County where two different reports stated that a woman had called police to report that she came out to her car in the morning to find “peanut butter smeared toast that had been attached to her entire car”…..BREAKFAST! And a woman in Aberdeen who called police to report that she had “purchased some crack cocaine, but when I got it home I found out it was just baking soda so I want that dealer arrested for selling me fake drugs”. Also a report of a fight in the parking lot of The Jitney Jungle supermarket in West Point, MS where the drivers of two delivery trucks got in a fight and “Coke hit Pepsi in the chin, then Pepsi hollered at Coke and told him to move his truck out of the way because he was there first”. Just the facts, ma’am…..just the facts…..

      PB Toast attached to her “entire” car? Like a car made of peanut butter toast? Sounds like heaven to me… Unless I came out and it was covered in Kit Kats – even better.

    I love stuff like this. I too don’t watch the news so much. We live abroad so all our news is international, essentially this means it is the worst stories from around the globe rather than just one country. I frequently seem to get the gist of what’s happening in the world from watching Conan and Jay Leno rather than CNN and Al Jazeera.
