Turbo Promise & More Stupid Human News


I promise that I will not interupt your TV shows with my political advertisements.

And now for the real stupid news story from my home state:

JEFFERSON CITY, MO -- The police valor medals were in place, the furniture in the governor's Capitol office was rearranged and the reporters were assembled. But there was a suspicious void at the front of the room.

The four police officers being honored for their composure while facing personal danger weren't there. No one had told them about Wednesday's ceremony.

Missouri Public Safety Director Mark James apologized for the goof and announced after about 15 minutes that the event was canceled.

A spokeswoman for Gov. Matt Blunt said he used the sudden free time for a meeting. The police officers will get their medals at a later date.

Ooooh, I'd be pretty ticked if no one told me about a ceremony in my honor! Loving your bloggy so far, Turbo.

I got ham tonight. Much better than stupid awards from stupid humans who didn't tell me anything about it.

We've always heard cliches about throwing a party where no one comes, but that story is ridiculous, even for humans!
