Pat Nutterson?: Well, "Mr-let's-assassinate-Hugo Chavez" has spoken again. Yes, Pat Robertson has made his annual prediction of doom and gloom. You may remember that last January Robertson predicted that a "mass killing" would affect major cities and possibly millions of people. He predicted the terrorist attack would occur in the U.S. sometime after Sept. '07. The previous year he stated that God told him "the coasts of America will be lashed by storms" and that there could well be a tsunami in the Pacific Northwest. Aren't the coasts of America lashed by storms of some kind every year?
This year Robertson is predicting a recession and a major stock market upheaval and also says that oil will reach $150 a barrel; currently it's at $100. "I also believe the Lord was saying by 2009, maybe 2010, there's going to be a major stock market crash." Just what the people on Wall Street want to hear!
I believe the man who once said that Ariel Sharon's stroke was divine retribution for the Gaza Strip pullout is suffering from a condition known as megalomania. Can't wait to hear what's all in store for next year.
Hot Panties: When a British woman's kitchen almost caught fire, her unmentionables saved the day. Darren Lines was frying bread in his aunt's kitchen in Hartlepool when the kitchen caught fire. Quick thinking Lines used the best thing he could think of to put out the flames...his aunt's powder blue XL underpants.
A fire official said Lines made a good decision by running the underpants under the water and smothering the flames.
The condition of the panties: Slightly scorched. Gives new meaning to the term "smokin' hot."
