This is Why I like to Wake Up

Brilliant - from Wall Street Journal

At least several hundred mile-junkies discovered that a free shipping offer on presidential and Native American $1 coins, sold at face value by the U.S. Mint, amounted to printing free frequent-flier miles. Mileage lovers ordered more than $1 million in coins until the Mint started identifying them and cutting them off.

Coin buyers charged the purchases, sold in boxes of 250 coins, to a credit card that offers frequent-flier mile awards, then took the shipments straight to the bank. They then used the coins they deposited to pay their credit-card bills. Their only cost: the car trip to make the deposit.


According to Dr. Karen Weatherby, a gerontologist and author of the study, gawking at women’s breasts is a healthy practice, almost at par with an intense exercise regime, that prolongs the lifespan of a man by five years.

She added, "Just 10 minutes of staring at the charms of a well-endowed female, is roughly equivalent to a 30-minute aerobics work-out."

Well that was a really strange post! Fun, though. Interesting about the health matter!

Love the comic strip. I passed it on to my Facebook addicted friend. But what's with the other pics?

I'm glad you asked Terri, the second shot is from Man Babies where they take the Daddy's head and Photoshop it on their infant and the infant on the father. I thought this was a good one and it made me laugh.

The last was from Awkward Family Photos. This is a real wedding picture with a guy picking himself in the background. It made me laugh too.

After the cleavage comment it looked rather perverted but wasn't meant to be.
