Of Funny Moments

Sarah Palin has linked up with Fox News, joining names such as Bill O’Reily and Sean Hannity as a commentator on the right-wing tilted network. Her first words?

“It’s wonderful to be part of a place that so values fair and balanced news.”

That’s the kind of material that has endeared her to us all. The sort that’s just completely untrue but spoken with such conviction it almost implies genuine belief. It’s like the elections all over again. Bravo.

Sick of your spouse? Don’t worry, your marriage may expire in ten years. A women’s party-list group in the Philippines has proposed a 10-year expiry on marriage in an attempt to strengthen it. Amazing. Now I know about the whole sacred covenant, staying together forever thing. But come on. That right there, that’s a Nobel Prize-winning idea.

Apparently, the idea was borne out of a desire to cease the ever-increasing marriage-annulments in the country. That sounds fair enough. To stop official marriage annulments, create a scheme that basically allows unofficial annulments but only after a certain period of time. Then call it something else. Fantastic. Watch and learn boys. That is how you dominate the Southeast Asia section of Google News.
