And now . . . this - June 9/05

Unclear on the concept

Words just fail me:

Mary Carey, the buxom porn star slated to dine with President Bush at a GOP fund-raiser Tuesday, says despite her racy occupation, she's still a Christian, and has her own aspirations of winning the presidency in the future.

"I read the Bible and pray every night," Carey told WorldNetDaily in an exclusive interview. . . .

"I kind of wanted to be a porn star," she said. "I wasn't raped or abused." . . .

"I probably have less sex with those guys than any college girl [typically has]. It doesn't make me less moral," she said. "I'm sure a lot of Christians have had sex before marriage. God reads my heart. I'm a good person. ... I think I have more morals than the politicians in office. I don't rob, steal, hurt, or lie - a lot of politicians do that."

When asked about Bible verses condemning adultery, she responded, "Bill Clinton committed adultery. [Doing] adult movies is acting, portraying a role. It's not Mary Ellen Cook, the real me."

One word: deluded.

Snake! Aaaaah, it's a snake!

A snake in the grass is to blame for a teenager shooting himself in the leg, police said. A 16-year-old boy was mowing his lawn Tuesday when he saw a snake slithering toward his dogs, which were chained in the front yard, police said.

Worried about the canines, the boy ran inside and grabbed a .22-caliber pistol, said Port Wentworth police Sgt. Loren Scholes.

The boy came back outside and when he saw the snake at his feet, he hastily aimed and fired. The bullet entered his right calf and exited near his heel, Scholes said.

The sad part is that he didn't need the gun if he had a lawn mower.

Next off the menu: Bunny steaks

A restaurant selling squirrel terrine has been forced to withdraw it after death threats from animal rights activists.

Protesters threatened to firebomb the Hadley Bowling Green Inn in Droitwich, Worcs, and to smash up the staff's cars over the £7.95 paté starter. . . .

He added: "We've never had to take something off the menu before because of threats from protesters. I don't know why squirrel meat is so controversial.

"In the past we've sold meat from fluffy little lambs and it's not been a problem."

They should get together with the kid in the last story and serve shredded lawn snake. No one ever used the cute-and-fuzzy defense for a snake.

Incidentally, the classic cookbook The Joy of Cooking, of all things, does contain preparation instructions for squirrel and other small game.
