Martin World News

Usually MWN indicates a fun, lighthearted post.  But today, stupid has taken on an unfunny, even dark, look.

The first thing I saw on the news today was that a woman who had her gender-reveal party shot up by two guys in masks- wasn't really pregnant.  And police say every step of their investigation has been met with one lie or another.  Next, I saw Dr. Carmen A. Puliafito, the  former dean of USC’s Keck School of Medicine has been living a life of hard drugs, prostitutes and ODs- and one OD, of a young lady in his company just three weeks before he resigned his $1.1 million a year job, blew the lid off of it.  Right next to that, the Mayor of holier than thou Seattle is being called on to resign after the openly gay politician has been exposed as a past (at least) sexual abuser of young boys, including his own foster son.

In the meantime, we also have a police shooting that really boggles the mind.  An Australian woman living in the US was shot by a Minneapolis cop.  She had reported something, the cops arrived in her alleyway to investigate.  She came out in her PJs and leaned in the driver's side window- and the cop in passenger seat apparently shot her THRU THE DOOR.   Not racial- she was white-  not violent- she taught meditation- and not recorded- because the cops for some mysterious reason did NOT have their body cameras on!

And in breaking news, Laurie's bro-in-law just stopped in to do something for us and got an insurance call, which he explained to us.  It seems that while his insurance paid for his colonoscopy at Parkview, they would NOT pay for Parkview's in-house analysis, which is contracted in house.  And you want ME to get one?  Yeah, right.  Not before I e-mail our HR and check on this...

And then you have the 67-year old lady who passed her eye irritation off as "old age", only to find she had 27 disposable contact lenses stuck in her eye- welded together by mucus into bundles of 17 and 10.  And you think I'M getting contacts?  I'm doubting that...

But on the light side, how about this?  Winnie The Pooh has been banned in China....

I TOLD you that going-without-pants thing was going to get you in trouble...
No, actually, it's because a little ol' meme maker has discovered that Pooh looks a lot like Chinese President Xi Jinping.  For example... he is with former President Obama...

...and again with Japanese President Abe.

Xi should actually be happy to be associated with a friendly cartoon creature.  Here in the US, we got Godzilla and Moth-Ra...

Finally, I did discover that I haven't been receiving my former Nigerian money-mails because my inbox was set to delete spam without me seeing it.  Well, I wanna see it, and so I turned it back on, and soon got my money mails back.  In fact, I got a couple of options.  The first was for $10.5 million....

You really have to stop dealing with those people that are contacting you and telling you that your fund is with them, it is not in anyway with them, they are only taking advantage of you and they will dry you up until you have nothing.
The only money I paid after I met Lawyer John Smith was just US$450 for the paper works, take note of that.

So I'm paying $450 to get $10.5 mill on this one.  But on the OTHER one...

I have registered your to Western Union this morning and we agreed up that your sum of $8.5M in Transfer within 24 hours, will take place Tomorrow morning so kindly reconfirm your information,and only fee is $75 dollars,your MTCN: (1566731111)
Mr John Eze

So the second offer I'm getting $133,000 for each dollar spent, rather than just the $23,000 for the other one.  Now if I can just get them to send it in $1 packets....

BREAKING:  Just got a survey with the following question:

Note- a CHILD who suffers from....


  1. Chris:
    ---I saw the non-pregnant, pregnant story...a real "WTF?" case there. And impeding the investigation? LOTS more there than meets the eye.
    ---I glanced over that MN story...doesn't make ANY damn sense. The cop that shot the woman had a Muslim name (Mohammed Noor). Maybe he thought she should be wearing a hijab?
    She was a beautiful woman, too.
    The body cams weren't on...wrong.
    The officer driving the patrol car isn't deaf or suffering from GSR burns (when the passenger seat officer unloaded)?
    That department just bought themselves a few pounds of MAJOR FAIL!
    ---Cripes, all the levels of government are ALREADY so far up our alimentary canals...they shouldn't charge ANY of us a damn DIME!
    ---I tried (sample) contacts ONCE...just once. Believe me, after taking a steel shard in the cornea, and then undergoing a procedure to have it removed (while totally awake), you tend to actively avoid things in the eyes.
    ---ROFL on those "pooh-memes".
    ---You get all the money scams, and all I keep getting are those dating site spams. I'm getting

    Good post.

    Stay safe and keep cool up there, brother.

    1. Man, I really sucked at answering comments this week!

      A lot of things still stink about the Minneapolis thing- especially, how the silent media would have been howling if Noor was white guy Joe Blow shooting a pretty black lady.

  2. Oh. At first I thought the gender-reveal party was going to reveal HER (or it's...?) gender.
    The world is crazy nowadays, you know.

  3. One other thing..."pain during intercourse"? That could mean you're taking it up th...oops, sorry. I forgot this was a family show.

    1. I had a couple of real good replies to this I had to nix as well...

  4. Yeah that Aussie woman shot by the cops is terrible and seems strange that their body cameras and car camera all were not working, sounds like they are trying to hide something. Why have them if they are not working

    1. Or turned on. This whole thing was a travesty.
