The Kardashians Reap What They Sow

It seems that one of the Kardashian family is hitting back at “fat shamers.” “Khloe Kardashian was incensed as she was met with a barrage of abuse on Sunday by cruel social media trolls, who accused her of wearing baggy clothes to hide her recent weight gain,” writes the Daily Mail.

In case you are unfamiliar, I will attempt to explain – although I don’t keep up with this crap either. I believe fat shaming is the practice of taking to social media to complain about, draw attention to, or make fun of someone famous, who has gained weight, is naturally rotund, or just kind of normal looking.

It most often happens to females of Hollywood . Evidently, the comedian, Amy Schumer has been repeatedly “fat shamed” by social media trolls. Although I don’t care for her comedy and can’t stand her leftist politics, she appears to be “normal” looking. But she’s a comedian, not a model. Unlike the Kardashians, she didn’t become famous by virtue of looks alone. Schumer looks lime a normal American woman – not like the plasticized Barbies that Americans are evidently enamored with. And heck – now that I think about it – most supposedly “perfect” starlets and models aren’t perfect at all. Most of what we see is, to some extent, photoshopped to wipe away their imperfections.

It’s all phony, which is why, at least for me, this story leaped off the screen. It’s the rich irony that one of supposed beautiful people, could be assailed by her followers so easily. But hey – you reap what you sow. read more

Testimonial

Dear Tide:

   
I am writing to say what an excellent product you have! I’ve used it all of  my married life, as my Mom always told me it was the best.  Now that
I am in my fifties I find it even better!  

In fact, about a month ago, I spilled some red wine on my new white blouse. My inconsiderate and uncaring husband started to belittle me about how clumsy I was, and generally started becoming a pain in the neck.  One thing led to another and somehow I ended up with his blood on my new white blouse!  I grabbed my bottle of Tide with bleach alternative, to my surprise and satisfaction, all of the stains came out!

In fact, the stains came out so well the detectives who came by yesterday told me that the DNA tests on my blouse were negative and then my attorney called and said that I was no longer considered a suspect in the disappearance of my husband.

What a relief!  Going through menopause is bad enough without being a murder suspect!  I thank you, once again, for having a great product.

Well, gotta go, have to write to the Hefty bag people.

What a Looker

For suspected drug trafficker Ronaldo Silva, prison was a real drag… so he decided to escape in what he thought was the perfect disguise.

When his wife came to visit him at Penedo prison in Brazil , he popped on her bra, threw on a wig and poured his curves into her pretty blue dress.

He even shaved his arms and legs for good measure, and squeezed into a pair of killer heels.

But his plan to sashay through the prison gates went awry after he forgot one thing: it can take a woman years to master how to glide naturally in high heels.

Half an hour into his daring bid for freedom, one eagle-eyed guard noticed that, despite looking like a woman, he didn’t walk like one.

He was followed as far as the bus station before police picked him up and dragged him back to jail.

The jail’s director Carlos Welber said Silva had swapped clothes with his wife during her weekly visit.

She left the prison wearing his bermuda shorts and another top she had brought in her bag.

He told Brazil’s Globo G1 website: ‘He left the prison shortly after her, along with other inmates’ wives. He was wearing a wig, painted false nails and a long dress. He’d spent a long time shaving his legs and arms. There was a lot of preparation and premeditation involved in this.’

Silva managed to get past prison guards, but a policeman patrolling the street outside became suspicious and decided to follow him.

Mr Welber said: ‘He noticed that the woman was walking funny and looked strange. He followed him to the bus station, where two men were waiting on motorbikes to pick him up.

‘The policeman approached him and managed to arrest him and bring him back, still dressed as a woman.’

Silva had been awaiting trial for drug trafficking.

He was transferred to the prison last month after another escape attempt, when armed men tried to invade another jail to release him.

According to Mr Welber, Silva’s wife admitted changing clothes with her husband but claimed she had no idea why he wanted them.

He said: ‘He was the one who demanded her clothes, at least that’s what she’s telling us. Of course we don’t believe her, but that’s her story.

‘At the time it was visiting hour and there were more than 150 family members inside the prison. But we’re taking measures to ensure this doesn’t happen again.’

Joke of the Day

After trying a new shampoo for the first time, a guy fired off an enthusiastic letter of approval to the manufacturer.

 Several weeks later he came home from work to a large carton in the middle of the floor.

Inside were free samples of the many products the company produced: soaps, detergents, tooth paste, and paper items.

“Well, what do you think?” his wife asked smiling.

“Next time,” he replied. “I’m writing to Mercedes!”
