Coma toast

Well we managed to get through the week without another decapitation on a Greyhound bus....oh but wait a minute....

Head on a PETA

No one ever went broke underestimating the taste of radical advocacy groups, but even in that context, PETA’s latest advertising campaign sets new lows. Last week, an attacker beheaded and cannibalized a man on a Canadian bus, a revolting crime that made headlines around the world. But where human beings saw tragedy and lunacy, PETA saw … opportunity:

Comparing the recent stabbing and decapitation of a young Winnipeg man to how humans kill animals for food.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals said the advertisement is meant to make people understand how animals suffer when they are killed in slaughterhouses. The group posted the imageless advertisement on its blog site Wednesday.

So much for killing and cannibalizing runaway teens. Now I have to worry about ending up on PETA's website.

When you're a Jet you're a Jet all the way

Brett! Brett! Brett!

That was the seemingly universal opinion of Jets fans yesterday as supporters of Gang Green came down with Favre Fever.

The trade bringing quarterback Brett Favre to New York excited long-suffering Jets fans, who said the future Hall of Famer should help the team make the playoffs.

I guess we're still stuck with their annoying chant except it will now be, " B....R....E...T....T.....Brett, Brett, Brett!"

Goodbye Bernie Mac

Though I never knew you at all
You had the grace to hold yourself while those around you crawled
Goodbye Bernie Mac from the young man in the twenty second row
Who sees you as something more than sexual
More than just our Bernie Mac

Mr. Mac died from complications of pneumonia in a Chicago-area hospital, said his publicist, Danica Smith. A public memorial is planned for noon Aug. 16 at The House of Hope church in Chicago, Smith said.

"The world just got a little less funny," said "Ocean's" co-star George Clooney.

So long to a great comedian.

You're an eight

Police say there's been an alarming rise in urine-filled plastic containers found along a three-mile stretch of Interstate 84 in eastern Oregon.

A litter crew for the Oregon Department of Transportation picked up an estimated 200-300 urine filled plastic bottles, along the highway, about half of which were found in a short stretch dubbed "Three Mile Hill."

The strange thing? Most of the urine was from women.

Pitting man against woman

A man and a woman found a new use for a barbecue pit _ one that landed them in jail. An argument over whether a third guest should stay in the house got so heated that the woman picked up the barbecue pit and hit the man over the head with it, police said.

The man picked up the barbecue pit and returned the favor and hit the woman in the head with it, police reported. The woman then told police that she picked up the barbecue pit and hit the back window of the man's car with it.

Police admit that the whole situation was confusing, but after medics treated the man and the woman, they were handcuffed, read their rights and taken to jail.

Sounds like our camping weekend at Sibbald point last week.

Give me as S...T...U...P...I...D

What's that spell?

Twenty-six teenage cheerleaders....

Not the ones in the picture, but hell, you need something to look at.

...tried to cram themselves into an elevator at the University of Texas to see how many would fit, but then they got stuck and had to be rescued.

Wow this is eerie. That was the first thing we did when we got up to Sibbald Point...except replace elevator with outhouse.

One girl was treated and released at a hospital and two others....

....Including an Asian dude trying to take up-skirt pictures...

....were treated at the scene after the Tuesday night prank, officials said.

You really should have been camping with us.
