THE BS NEWS QUIZ OF THE DAY

Yesterday, I asked...

"Charged as a sexual predator, Daniel Allen Everett of Clarkston, Michigan was arrested while wearing a t-shirt that said what?"

25% said "Plays Well With Others"
- Apparently just a subjective opinion. His own.

No one picked "Good Girls Are Bad Girls That Never Get Caught" or "Here I Am - Now What Are Your Other Two Wishes?"

75% got it right with "World's Greatest Dad"

According to WXYZ, Channel 7 in Detroit, Attorney General Mike Cox announced today the arrest of Daniel Allen Everett, of Clarkston, Michigan - a man whose shirt proclaims him as the "World's Greatest Dad" - for using the Internet to arrange a meeting for sex with a minor.



In Mr. Everett's defense, that "W" is clearly the logo for the World Wrestling Entertainment. He's the world's greatest wrestling dad, which means he wasn't going to hurt her, just make it look like he was.

Joe,

You running cracks me up. I don;t know why but some full out Janes-gate is all it took to make me ROTFALOL. Thanks!

That is amazing. I can't believe you got to be in a Breeders video. Just by meeting Kim Deal, you've lived out the dreams of my adolesence.

Now I will always wonder what on earth was in that envelope.

That was a lot of fun!

Joe Janes said...

Not to spoil the fun, but we talked at length during the shoot about revealing what wa sin the envelope as the blow to the scene, but we couldn't come up with anything that made sense. Leaving it hanging made the most sense. It wasn't until later that I remembered that one of the Deal sisters got in trouble with possesion of narcotics that were delivered to her by messenger. But that's just coincidental.

Great video! Hooray for bands that do more than sing to the camera.

For the large version, why would anyone want to click away from your screen? You're adorable.
