Saturday Morning Cartoons!

"What's Opera, Doc?" (1957)



Quite simply, the best Bugs Bunny cartoon ever. Grab your spear and magic helmet and enjoy.





THE BS NEWS QUIZ OF THE DAY


Yesterday, I asked...

"A man in Boston was sentenced for a fraud scheme where he and his wife would go to restaurants and claim what?"


50% said "They found a finger tip"
- Nope. No tips. Just lawsuits.

30% picked "They were sat too close to the smoking section"
- Nope. You are in the wrong answer section.

10% surmised "They were traumatized by the server"
- No. If you did that, you'd have to allow servers to sue customers who traumatized them. The courts would be so clogged R. Kelly would never see justice.

10% nailed it with "They ate glass"

According to the Associated Press, Ronald Evano was sentenced to more than five years in prison for his role in a multistate insurance fraud scheme in which he and his wife intentionally ate glass fragments and collected more than $200,000 in compensation. Evano asked the judge for mercy, saying in court that he and his wife are members of the minority Roma community, and needed the money to pay for dowries and other costs associated with the marriages of his sons under cultural practices. You know, let your sons eat their own damn glass. How else are they going to learn to make it in this world?
