WTF?! Friday

Even though my weekend doesn't officially begin until Sunday, I am excited that Friday is here. Tomorrow I have to work but I have an inkling that my co-workers are throwing me a surprise baby shower. I'll feel really stupid if I'm wrong, but I read people pretty well (or get really mixed signals from them) and think that's what they've been hinting at. One colleague was looking at cakes online today and was like, "Which one would you choose? I have to get it for my friend tomorrow but I think I have to bring it in and store it in the fridge since I won't have time to get it after work." The other day she asked me what kind of cake I like. Anyway. have a great weekend everyone!

Credit card theft happens everyday. I recently encountered someone who had this happen to them. She was sitting at a cafĂ© where I often frequent and had her purse hanging on the back of a chair. The culprit slipped her purse off the chair, opened her wallet, snuck out her credit cards, put it all back in place and left the restaurant without a single person noticing. When I think of a thief I envision a man wearing a robbers mask, dressed all in black, coming out only at night and carrying a flashlight while he lurks in the shadows. Obviously this isn’t the case and cartoons deceived me as a child. People don’t make it so blatant that they’re stealing from you as this situation is proof of. There also isn't a one fits all profile for thieves either because the offender happened to be an older woman. Her accomplice was a baby that she had seated on her lap and used as a distraction. I really hope she was just a nanny and not the mother or relative of that child or his future isn't looking so promising.WTF, crooks?!

Incestuous relationships were popular back in the day with royalty in order to protect royal assets. Marrying family members ensures that a king will share riches, privilege, and power only with people already his relatives. An English brother and sister recently decided to go old school on our asses (and each others) and while at a British train station retreated to an elevator to get it on. While in the midst of lusting for each other they missed that there was a camera on that elevator. Unfortunately someone had to witness the video and subsequently went blind. After they went back for round two the duo was busted and admitted to unlawful sexual intercourse. As sick as it is, you can't really blame them for their actions. They learned the behavior from their own parents who clearly were brother and sister too. WTF, people?!

Spanish toymakers have created a way to put little girls in their place and learn their role in society. A baby doll that simulates breastfeeding. Your child puts on a halter top like bra with flowers over the nipple area. When the baby is lifted to the flowers, it begins to make a sucking motion and sound. The idea is to promote and encourage breastfeeding. Because every toddler should dream of the day when her reproductive system is in full effect and she can make babies and breastfeed her young. I know children look up to their parents and want to be like them. It’s adorable when my niece soothes her baby when she‘s “crying“ or pushes her around in her stroller. It will be disturbing if she ever lifts up her shirt and attempts to lactate. Can’t we go back to the dolls that crap themselves instead? WTF, Spain?!

Ok, first of all that toy sounds freaky, weird, and stupid, OMG! But I can't believe that about your friend. I have had my credit card stolen, but I think it was over the internet because I still had my card. I can't believe that happened!!

HAHA! I busted out laughing when I saw the photos of the siblings and read your thoughts about their parents. So funny. And also, completely horrifying! And yes, I agree about the breast feeding toy. Weird. Really weird.

YOU. You freaking rock! Hahahaha- there are so many things wrong with so many things... but as if those aren't enough to catch our attention, we can always count on you to make us that much more captive!! I always laugh so hard when I read your posts and this one made me laugh... and then wonder if it was inappropriate to do so. Haha- seriously, WTF?!
