This time being overweight may have saved someone's life. Samantha Lynn Frazier was walking on the Atlantic City Boardwalk- when she heard some "pops" - the next thing she knew - was waking up in a trauma center. She had been shot- but her "love handles" had stopped the bullet. Ms. Frazer says She doesn't want to lose weight anymore!
Krystals- the midwest fast food hamburger chain- held a Facebook contest with the winner, Tracy Hale being inducted into the 2009 Krystal Lovers Hall of Fame class and getting her picture on the side of a hamburger box. Far be it for me to talk about being overweight- but The Tennessean post shows Tracy Hale in 2005 eating a Krystal's hamburger in her wedding gown- and there is a picture of Hale today, a few pounds heavier. I shake my head at this story because Hale loves Krystal's and Krystal's loves Hale- but does this article and marketing campaign send the right story to the consumer? Am I missing the point?
The owner of the Riverside Social Club in Galloplis Ferry, WV just wanted to open a nice genteel social club, that promotes good clean fun for singles and couples. But the media has gotten a hold of the story, and wham, bam, thank-you Maam! Shades of Plato's Retreat. County commissioners are trying to find out if the club is legal and legit. Residents are up in arms! Just an FYI "Naughty Nurse Night" was held Dec 5, and "Sex on the Beach Night" was Dec 5.
Marguerite Engle fell short of breaking the current record for highest blood alcohol level currently held by Terri Comer, set in 2008 with a .72. Engle was arrested and posted a .708, just short of the record. Engle had no comment on if and when she would make another attempt at the record.
And the Jesus sightings continue- this time its Jesus on Lisa Swinton's banana. As Lisa was sitting down to snack on the banana she noticed the face of Jesus staring out at her. Swinton ate the banana, and took some pictues of the peel. and she has been close to 2 Virgin Mary sightings- A friend of her saw the Virgin Mother on a shower door, and another saw her on some tile grout. Just amazing! especially the day before Christmas.
Phoenix's Paradise Valley School district believes that there were other Phoenix locations which could have accomodated the large group of 40 students other than Hooters!! Mary Segall, suspended for this action, will be retiring this January, so this may not be that big of a deal. But is this overreaction from the School District?
