Now, This Couple…

…must have had an interesting past fourteen years together.

A Polish man got the shock of his life when he visited a brothel and spotted his wife among the establishment’s employees. Polish tabloid Super Express said the woman had been making some extra money on the side while telling her husband she worked at a store in a nearby town.

“I was dumfounded. I thought I was dreaming,” the husband told the newspaper Wednesday.

The couple, married for 14 years, are now divorcing, the newspaper reported.

So the husband, who visits brothels, is appalled that his wife works at one, and his wife is appalled that her husband visits them? I mean, is this an uncontested divorce, or a plaintiff and defendant affair?

I admit to being just a bit confused, as one would seem to be the Yin to the other’s Yang. The first thing that came to my mind was the foundation of a slightly more liberal remake of “Escape” (The Pina Colada Song).

This may sound a bit redundant, but if it weren’t for people, there would be no comedy.

The Gay Bomb

There are often times when reality can seem infinitely less real and much more amusing than comic fiction.

This video supplies a prime example.

Fun With Belgians

Orson Welles would have enjoyed this.

BRUSSELS, Belgium - Suddenly and shockingly, Belgium came to an end. State television broke into regular programming late Wednesday with an urgent bulletin: The Dutch-speaking half of the country had declared independence and the king and queen had fled. Grainy pictures from the military airport showed dark silhouettes of a royal entourage boarding a plane.
Only after a half hour did the station flash the message: “This is fiction.”

It was too late. Many Belgians had already fallen for the hoax.

Frantic viewers flooded the call center of the RTBF broadcaster that aired the stunt. Embassies called Belgian authorities to find out what was going on, while foreign journalists scrambled to get confirmation.

Heh heh…
