Oh Yeah Baby!


Uh-huh, it's time for the headlines, so let's get to it!

N.Zealand eyes labels to fight obesity

Folks down under are going to have a fight on their hands at this time next year, when food labels trained in martial arts and BMI will come out swinging if an obese person purchases any comestible that's more than 100 calories a serving. "Training the lables to fight obesity wan't all that hard, once we got them properly motived," says Terrence Ugnatrundlhamshire. "They're tough little buggers, and I'd certainly watch out for surpirse gut-punches and left hooks if I was a bit on the chunky side."


If you can do better with these or other headlines, please do so in the comments. Otherwise, y'all have a superdeedooper LOOONG weekend, and I'll see you Tuesday.

Or Monday. Or maybe even over the "S" days. I really have no clue as to when. I don't plan these things, they're more a gift from above, really. A gift that you can't wait to open, I know.
