Honeymoon From Hell

True story reported in the Toronto city newspapers.

Newly weds Stefan and Erika Svanstrom left Sweden on Dec 6 for a four month honeymoon. They got caught up in six natural disasters.

1 Caught in Europe's worst winter storm on record in Munich Germany.
2 Headed to Cairns, Australia where they encountered a cyclone and were evacuated.
3 Next up Brisbane, Australia which was ravaged by floods.
4 Next to Perth, Australia where they escaped wild bush fires.
5 The 6.3 magnitude earthquake hit Christchurch, New Zealand just before they arrived.
6 Then they were off to Tokyo where they were in  the quake and tsunami.

Truly unrepeatable. Life should be easy from here on you'd think for this couple, can't be much worst.

What Do You Call That?

I like to golf, I get out there and bang the ball around. I usually take one more stroke than is expected on each hole which is called a bogey. Sometimes two extra which is called a double bogey.
What I never want to see is an 8, two little circles on top of each other, which we call a snowman.
That never looks good on the card, wrecks havoc on the score, and is always hard to come back from.

So I was amazed to see a professional golfer get a 16 on a hole that should have taken 4 the other day in a professional tournament. I got to thinking, what do you call that?

One over is a bogey
Two over is a double bogey, three a triple, four a quad, five a quint, six a sext, seven a sept, eight an oct and nine a ????????
I don't know what's next, nor for ten or above so again what is 16?

When i realized it was a double snowman I cringed, imagine how that would look on the card ! Two 8"s for one hole.

The Reverend

What a story,

First some reverend in the U.S. burns a holy book from another country.

Then some people in the other country kill some foreigners in retaliation.

Now we find out the Reverend has a following of four and is a totally irrelevant guy. Today's media will getcha killed. How does this nobody influence someone else's execution?

Most of us don't have to worry, we're not about to do some idiotic thing. But if you are, better make sure there's no video camera around.
