Here, Drink This Baby Bottle of Red Dye
Is it me, or is there something wrong with this picture (emphasis mine): “Doctors at five sites in England are comparing vaccines from two manufacturers to see which works best and has fewer side-effects. Over the next two weeks 1,000 children aged six months to 12 years are being recruited in Oxford, Bristol, Southampton, Exeter and London.” Link.
I honestly don’t have an opinion on this whole H1N1 immunization controversy, but if there are side effects, ought doctors be recruiting infants? Maybe this is standard O.P., but it strikes me as a little loony.

This is the funniest serious story I’ve read all month (and it’s the 30th): “The wildly popular and outrageously pricey American Girl Store recently released a new doll. Her name is Gwen Thompson and she is homeless. According to her back story, her dad took off on the family, mom fell on hard times and now she sleeps in her car.” Link.
Forget the irony that a homeless doll costs $95. If this is successful, are they going to come out with related urban dolls: Rufus Jones, Pimp. He b**** slaps Gwen when she fails to bring in enough money. Wino Ted. He sleeps under a newspaper and sometimes defecates himself. You can change him! Cracky. She makes methamphetamine in her van and sometimes earns yet more meth by, well, associating with Rufus Jones.
Can You Spell, “Sanctionable”?
