US judge rejects saggy jeans law

Low-slung trousers are fashionable among some young people. A law that landed a Florida teenager in jail for having sagging jeans that exposed his underwear is unconstitutional, a judge has decided. The 17-year-old spent a night in jail after police arrested him for exposing 4in (10cm) of boxer shorts in Riviera Beach, south-east Florida. Probably this judge doesn't wear any underwear at all to be constitutional !

Uganda seeking miniskirt ban

The minister said wearing a miniskirt was akin to going naked. Uganda's ethics and integrity minister says miniskirts should be banned - because women wearing them distract drivers and cause traffic accidents. He told journalists in Kampala that wearing a miniskirt was like walking naked in the streets. He should get together with the above mentioned judge, they would be a nice pair !

Bed it Crunch

BRITAIN is heading for a baby boom as the credit crunch is forcing couples to entertain themselves at home. People have limited cash to splash at pubs and restaurants so are spending more time in the bedroom. Sales of maternity clothes rose by nearly half last week.What’s cheaper and more fun than making babies? The trouble is, when they come out they are expensive. And therefore I suggest, that before making babies, open a saving account or at least put a piggy bank besides your bed ! 9 months after having fun the expenses start !

Two head turtle

TWO heads appear to be better than one for this turtle from China.
The double-headed creature was pictured in China’s Lyshun Snake Museum in Dailan.
Visitors who get the chance to see the freakish turtle will no doubt be left shell shocked. This turtle must be very intelligent with two brains ! some politicians would also need a second head !

BATTLE of Britain veterans were honoured yesterday for their extraordinary efforts defending the country against Nazi invasion. Prince Charles was among the congregation at a thanksgiving service at Westminster Abbey to mark the 68th anniversary of the victory. What an honor ! with such a hat !!

Hi Gattina ~~ Good compilation of news. Some
folks have very different views don't they - the mini skirts and the underwear showing that does not look nice. Charles is starting to look his age and Camilla is all hat. Thanks for the comment about my cousin and me in picture.The mouse that John bought was about $40 Australian in Woolworths. so they are not too expensive and if Woolies have them, they must be available.Take care, Love, Merle.

Oh my... the hat cracks me up!!!


Wir haben eine freundliche Haushaltshilfe seitdem ich zum 2. Mal schwanger war. Vorher hab ich's ganz gut alleine hingekriegt (sind hier ja bloss 120m²), aber nun bin ich froh, dass ich unsere "Perle" habe, besonders, wenn's um wischen geht. Unsere Hundedame bekommt malwieder neues Fell.

In Spanien werde ich mir wohl eine neue Lady suchen müssen. Bei der ersten Finca ist Pool- und Gartenpflege mit dabei, d.h. im Moment ist jemand da, der das für den Besitzer "für 'n Appel und'n Ei" macht. Den würden wir auch weiter beschäftigen. Die 2. Finca scheidet ja sowieso aus, u.a., weil das Grundstück ungepflegt ist (viiiiiel Arbeit). Beim dritten Haus (dem Favoriten) könnten wir wahrscheinlich den Gärtner von #1 dazu buchen. Die Garten-Nutzfläche liegt bei 1.000m², der Rest ist Brachland, aber ich hab schon auf die 1.000m² keinen Bock *g*. Ist man hinten fertig, kann man vorne wieder anfangen :-)

So, eigentlich wollte ich das alles per email schreiben, aber mein Programm ist mal wieder im Eimer. Hoffentlich explodiert Deine Kommentar-Box jetzt nicht :-)

Liebe Grüsse

OK- Have to comment on that first picture... I, for one, will certainly be happy if that underwear showing trend ever gets over! I'm so tired of looking at strange men's dirty underwear!!

It's not just Baggy pants! I have seen some boys/men with the pants BELTED near the knees!!
I've wondered what they were thinking the first time they did this!! They have to just shuffle along-not walk in a normal way- in order to prevent the pants from falling to their feet!
Lol! Not that they would care !

Nice to see a country where a judge has just this sort of problems to resolve!!! I am jealous! I just now imagine Sarkokenstein wearing a such sagging jean! I am sure under it I would see a Dior or Jean Paul Gaultier slip!

:::choking::: The hat has just got to go!!!

As for things in this country, being unconstitutional, I think the seat belt law is also unconstitutional also. But what do I know. LOLOLOL

Hope you had a great Tuesday Gattina.

Charles and Camilla both look like the whole thing was QUITE painful -- even WITH a lovely hat!
