Omnibus Stupid MFers in the news thread

We’re the Canadian press, with our new tagline:
We’re Too Busy Fighting for the Little Guy to Spend Thity Seconds Googling™.

CBC News had a slideshow of troops rescuing a thousand chickens from a flooded farm in BC, so I think your question has been answered.

They call that Canadian one dollar coin a loonie, because there’s a loon on one side of it. There’s some kind of a bird on the other.

No there isn’t. That’s Queen Elizabeth! :stuck_out_tongue:

A Toon.

That’s the bird on the $2 coin?

Of course! Why else would it be called a Toonie?

That ain’t no bird.

No telling yet whether this is stupid or evil, but I’m leaning toward both. A car crashed through police barricades in Waukesha, WI and plowed into a Christmas parade. The “Dancing Grannies” were among the first hit. Fatalities are reported.

If it was a mass causality incident, then there must be a reason for it.

On a more serious note: the vehicle was estimated at 40 mph when it hit the parade, it apparently swerved at least once to hit the marching band, the vehicle drove away without stopping, at least one shot was fired by law enforcement at the vehicle, the vehicle was later recovered, and the “person of interest” is in police custody.

With the latter two facts, it shouldn’t be long before more is known about the reason for this occurrence.

Hey @GreysonCarlisle and @Roderick_Femm , there’s already a separate Breaking News thread over in MPSIMS for Waukesha Parade Crasher Guy.

it is a great big fluffy white polar brrrrrrd

I miss Opal. She was kinda nuts. :frowning:

But you are here for the farming is immoral thread.

My father said that coin showed The Queen with the bear (bare) behind!

Trump Jr tried to out-evil his father.

Good luck with that.

Steve Burton, one of the stars of the soap General Hospital, has been relieved from the role after he refused to get vaccinated. Actor Ingo Rademacher had already been fired for refusing to get vaccinated.

I’m recalling a scene in Tootsie where two actors on the set of the hospital soap are looking at an empty bed.
“What happened to the violin player?”
“He wanted a raise.”

Hope he’s got enough saved for retirement.

Forget politics. No production company’s gonna take an insurance risk like that for an actor maybe 15 people in America under the age of 60 would even recognize.

The story claims that he applied for “medical and religious” exemptions. Since they were denied, I’m guessing that the former were bogus woo rather than legitimate medical contraindications.
