Headline time again

Before I get into the actual headlines with my famous witty commentary, here is a story that I find fascinating. I truly believe that one of our problems in America is we have too many people with too much free time. Now regardless of how you feel about the art below - this woman has TOO MUCH FREE TIME! (at least in my opinion)

Woman Recreates 'Last Supper' With Lint

Da Vinci's Masterpiece Has Seen Many Incarnations

ROSCOMMON, Mich. -- A northern Michigan woman has put her own spin on Leonardo da Vinci's "The Last Supper" by making a replica out of laundry lint.

Laura Bell of Roscommon collected lint from her dryer and fashioned it into a 14-foot-long, 4-foot tall reproduction of the Italian Renaissance painter's masterpiece.

Bell says she needed about 800 hours to do enough laundry to get the lint, and 200 hours to recreate the mural. She bought towels of the colors she wanted and laundered them separately to get the right shades of lint.
O.K. here we go with the headlines...
Police foil what they believe to be a goatnapping

It's never as easy as it looks on CSI
Man has odd explanation for running over 41 mailboxes

"I didn't see them"?? or maybe "I was trying to foil a goatnapping"??  (fyi - the real answer is he hit the "first few" by accident, then continued, to take out his frustration)
Cross-dressing shoplifters pepper-spray Home Depot customers

I HATE when that happens!

Now for the perfect crime defense...(no other comment needed)
It's tough to prosecute a guy who has next to no language skills

Drug-trafficking suspect Juan Jose Gonzalez is deaf, mute, and illiterate -- including no known knowledge of sign language. Good luck trying him in court! (these are the first lines of the story, not my comments)
Some sexual ones anyone??
Man arrested after putting porn magazines on women's cars

A marketing gimmick?
 Probably just comes under my first comment of TOO MUCH TIME!
Boy, 12, faces charges after allegedly showing his junk in class

Obviously training to be a Jets quarterback
And under the heading of any sex is good sex...
Man: I didn't know that the woman I was boinking was dead

Observant fellow. I just wonder when he found out? Was it good for you...
I might have to follow this case. The defense arguments will have to be entertaining.

The Devil Just Bought an Overcoat

I just read a headline that proves we are in dire times...

Tony Bennett is doing a duet with Amy Winehouse

Wait, I just realized that this news is probably only relevant to a very small percentage of people. Let me explain.

for the youth, who are wondering who this Tony Bennett is - he is an 84 year old singer that has sold over 50 million records worldwide while collecting 15 Grammy awards. His first pop hit was in 1951.

for the old, who are wondering who Amy Winehouse is - she is a 27 year old singer that is famous for her
drinking, heavy drug use, violent mood swings and weight loss. Her first hits were in 2003.

Good career move for someone?!?!
