News, but not the serious kind
The very worst way to go?
Blog Guy, I heard on the news that some poor man died a fiendishly horrible death a couple of days ago over there in Spain. Do you know what I’m talking about?
Yes, and we have a photo from the unspeakably tragic scene. Some sensitive readers may wish to stop reading at this point.
Is it really true that the guy…
Yes, he was sucked into a huge cotton candy machine at a carnival, and there was no way to turn it off in time.
This once again focuses on the hideous danger of cotton candy machines, which kill about 40,000 people a year world-wide and pull off countless arms and legs, spinning and flossing them into a macabre “treat.”
I had no idea…
Why do you think most cotton candy is the color it is? It doesn’t start out that way, if you catch my drift. It’s from the body parts that are in the mix.
Where do you think the phrase “pinky” comes from, and the expression “in the pink.”
Blog Guy, I think this is more of your made-up horse poop.
You may be right. My fact-checker isn’t working today, and I’m off to have some turkey.
