Coming soon to a country near you!

How's this for a headline?

The Burqa Gets a Makeover
I shit you not dear readers. ABC is running a story on how a Norwegian clothing designer is designing a new series of burqas. You know, the wonderful head wear that all women must wear in a muslim country.

For example, this lovely ensemble:

There's a rub, though. Norway isn't an islamic country. Yet.

Would someone please tell me why a woman who is not a muslim would wear one of these garments? Because as the story says:
The designers reportedly say they are aiming their collection at Muslims and non-Muslims.
Could it be that non-muslim women would have to wear this oppressive garment in order to not face the wrath of the religion of perpetual outrage? I mean, as we all know - islam is THE religion of peace, and there would really be no reason for a non-muslim to comply with any of their prehistoric rules and customs....

Chuck Norris the only WMD in Iraq, say U.S. troops

Chuck Norris - All-American good-guy, if you ask me.
The actor has visited Iraq several times and was made an honorary Marine last year. Some 20 U.S. military personnel and support staff spoken to by Reuters could recite at least one Norris "fact," despite many having not visited the Web site.

U.S. troops in Iraq say his support for them and Norris' invincible image has made him their idol and insist the exaggerated and satirical claims are not meant to mock him.

"The jokes all add to his legend. They're not derogatory. He's an icon," said Sergeant Joe Lindsay at a base in Falluja in Iraq's Western Anbar province, which Norris has visited.
Chuck facts are pretty good, and some of them have their roots in Iraq:
"The fastest way to a man's heart is with Chuck Norris's fist," reads one message at the shrine, which consists of a signed photo of the actor surrounded by similar statements.

"Chuck Norris puts the laughter in manslaughter," reads one and "Chuck Norris divides by zero," reads another.

Here's a list of Chuck's personal favorites:

When the Boogeyman goes to sleep every night, he checks his closet for Chuck Norris.

Chuck Norris doesn't read books. He stares them down until he gets the information he wants.

There is no theory of evolution. Just a list of creatures Chuck Norris has allowed to live.

Outer space exists because it's afraid to be on the same planet with Chuck Norris.

Chuck Norris does not sleep. He waits.

Chuck Norris is currently suing NBC, claiming Law and Order are trademarked names for his left and right legs.

Chuck Norris is the reason why Waldo is hiding.

Chuck Norris counted to infinity - twice.

There is no chin behind Chuck Norris’ beard. There is only another fist.

When Chuck Norris does a pushup, he isn’t lifting himself up, he’s pushing the Earth down.

Chuck Norris is so fast, he can run around the world and punch himself in the back of the head.

Chuck Norris’ hand is the only hand that can beat a Royal Flush.

Chuck Norris can lead a horse to water AND make it drink.

Chuck Norris doesn’t wear a watch, HE decides what time it is.

Chuck Norris can slam a revolving door.

Chuck Norris does not get frostbite. Chuck Norris bites frost

Remember the Soviet Union? They decided to quit after watching a DeltaForce marathon on Satellite TV.

Contrary to popular belief, America is not a democracy, it is a Chucktatorship.

Rebecca Aguilar fired. Finally.

Can't believe this happened 4 days ago and I'm just hearing about it. Must have been all the snow coverage keeping this story under wraps.

We posted here about Rebecca Aguilar ambushing an old man who had defended himself and his business two times - and in the process killed the two thugs tyring to rob and potentially hurt the 70 year old man.

The video shows Aguilar harassing an old man who had just purchased another shotgun - alluding to the fact that guns are bad, why do you need another one? She brings the old fellow to tears, and badgers him throughout the interview.

Well, dear readers, it's taken a while, but at last Aguilar has been fired from Fox 4.
In a telephone interview Wednesday night, Aguilar, 49, said she was checking her mail at mid-afternoon that day when she noticed an envelope under her front door mat. It informed her that Fox4 was exercising an option to drop her at the halfway point of a two-year contract that began on March 6, 2007.
Aguilar remains unrepentant:
"I just think it's really sad that I gave this company 14 years and I did about 6,000 interviews," Aguilar said. "And now I'm out of a job because of one interview? It's like in one swoop it ruined my reputation. It ruined my name."
You lost your job not because of the interview, but for the manner in which you performed it. You harassed, badgered, and intimidated a 70 year old man to the point of tears. You are an embarrassment to your profession (if it can be called that) and all I can say is good bye, good riddance, and don't let the door hit ya on the ass on the way out.
