The Nosy News Meme

Welcome to The Queen's Meme #41

Sometimes silly.
Sometimes serious.
Always fun!
Step out of the box.
Be creative.
Use your imagination.
No one's answers are quite like yours

So much crazy news out there lately -from sunbursts to outbursts to implants to supplements. Here are a few topics spinning off the newswire.. Sound off and tell us how you really feel about it. Your opinion counts.

1. What would you do about the BP oil spill? Give us your suggestions. Get a very large mop and bucket

2. Tipper and Al Gore are calling it quits. Will Al be putting an application in a dating agency? "Former Presidental challenger wishes to meet a woman who doesn't have an odd name."

3. It’s hot! The heat index topped 104 degrees today in some parts of the United States. How is the weather in your part of the world? It's cold! It's been cloudy for most of June. If there is supposed to be a global warming, it hasn't come to Britain.

4. Do you think smoking should be banned in public places? Ban it everywhere!

5. Unemployment from the top down: Do you think President Obama has a good chance or no chance of being re-elected in the next US election?  He's one person many would welcome on the Unemployment Register. Can you inagine him being asked "What was your last occupation?"

6. What??! Actor Gary Coleman’s wife reportedly sold private pictures of the deceased actor on his deathbed. Watch ya talkin' 'bout, Willis?

7. Texting while driving. Do you? Don't you? Will you? Won't you? Not if reading the paper at the same time.

8. Lindsay Lohan. Has she been treated fairly or unfairly by the legal system? Lindsay is just a poor misunderstood Hollywood millionaire superstar. They usually all are!

9. The Sarah Palin rumor mill caught wind of her recent decision to have breast implants….so said the reporters-who-need-to-get-a-job-and-stop-making-up-news. She has denied the earthshaking allegations. Was this really news? I don't believe this. I'd need to check to find out.

10. An asteroid is supposed to hit Earth this Friday. Are you prepared? Yes, I'll have my umbrella ready. If I miss it, I'll see the highlights the next day...if there is a next day!

Great answers! I loved number 7. Texting. Not if it interfers with reading the paper.

Have a great day.

Will you be using the braille method on Sarah? I would expect someone from Britain to break out a towel in case of imminent asteroid even if it is past Towel Day for this year.

I think perhaps Al gave her the name 'Tipper'... for many many reasons :)
Yes please, don't put down the paper to text, it may distract you from the asteroid that is about to land in front of you....

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Jamie, how did you know that?

I'll have to remember to stop reading the paper when the asteroid hits. Hope it doesn't dent the car.

The Gal Herself said...

Loved your answer to #7. Especially because a newspaper is old school cool.
