December 29, 2010 - Skilift Becomes Skidrop

maine skilift derailed
Really Short Story: Snow-related activities gone wrong.
Short Story: So, you're stuck in Maine over this past Christmas weekend (why else would you be there unless you're stuck?) and you decide, well, I guess with all this snow, we might as well go out skiing. I mean, you're stuck in Maine, what else could possibly go wrong? So, you head out to a popular local resort, get on the skilift, and next thing you know, BOOM!, skilift derails, and you're face down in the snow 20 feet below, the same snow which so cruelly lead you to that mountain in the first place. It's around this time you start to think, are we really all that sure that global warming isn't a good thing?
mary tyler moore
December 29, 2010: mary tyler moore Day! - Mainly known for starring in self-titled sitcoms for people with 3-word names.
WHY?: Mary Tyler Moore was the pre-eminent star of self-titled sitcoms of the 1960's and 70's, with her roles in The Dick Van Dyke Show and later The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Although, she represented first the idyllic housewife, and later the strong, independent single woman in those shows, respectively, she has been married three times, and divorced twice in her own life. Moore has also starred in various Broadway plays and was nominated for an Academy Award for her role in the film Ordinary People. Aside from that, she also supports animal rights and opposes diabetes, although, who doesn't?

TOMORROW'S contenders:
lebron james - Just one of the many NBA free agents who switched teams this past summer.
tiger woods - Still the best athlete in the world who goes primarly by the name of a wild animal.
heidi fleiss - Surprisingly, there is no known connection between this "Hollywood Madame" and Tiger Woods.

I bet this isn't the first time these cops have heard the old "I didn't mean to shoot her, it was just her sex fantasy…" excuse.

Elton John and his partner just had a baby boy…although, it's not clear which man actually gave birth to the child.
tow truck gone wild
Usually I would have thought New Yorkers would be cheering this kind of like it was an urban monster truck rally.

Is this cowboy coming or going, and is it a Brokeback Mountain cowboy?
obama to name his top economist
Well, he is actually going to name his top economic advisor…not just his favorite economist in the world.


  1. Mary Tyler Moore - love her! I'm visualizing her tossing her hat in the air right now. As for that loaded gun story? I don't know which is creepier: the fact tha he put a loaded gun to her head or the fact that he was 27 years her junior. Bletch!

  2. Did anyone get hurt falling down of the ski lift?
