These two stories pretty much sum up the state of the union today.
The state of the union is PARANOID.
1) Bomb squad called to diffuse pile of pillows.
"As a precaution, we contacted the Broward sheriff's bomb squad to investigate."
bomb squad did not find an explosive device, Rues said. A Miramar
police photo showed a plaid shopping bag that had contained some of the
eight or so recovered pillows.
The state of the union is flush with C-A-S-H!!
2) The 75 cent toothpick. I hesitate to link to these single malt toothpicks because I know of at least one reader that might order a gross of them.
Only in America could someone take something that normally costs $1.00/1,000, rebrand it, flavor it and bam!!! Profit!
"Our Single Malt Nº16 is a SELECT batch
premium blend and as a result it has a higher price. This is because
they are made with very old, very good, very expensive single malt
scotch and are a pain in the arse to make. This time consuming process
is unique to Daneson, and the resulting toothpicks are for those who
enjoy finer things in life."
