Bizarre

In Hong Kong, a betrayed wife is legally allowed to kill her adulterous husband, but may only do so with her bare hands. (The husband’s lover, on the other hand, may be killed in any manner desired.)

A car dealer in Missouri, US, boasts that his auto sales have quadrupled since he began giving away a free hand gun with every sale.  He claims his inspiration comes from Senator Barack Obama.

And…

I’m going to a Christmas party on Monday night. 

Bring on the comments

    26th if may for a christmas party…
    Well they obviously cared enough about ye to pay the extra 100 euro for a date within 2 months of christmas :S

  2. And I thought my mate was moving back from Hong Kong ’cause he wanted his kid educated here. It all makes sense now :-)

    I don’t know which story is more appalling. It’s okay to kill your husband because he misused his joystick? And it’s okay to hand out lethal weapons like bags of sweets? He should give away free nuclear missiles, then trade would really rocket (as it were).

  4. Is it last years Christmas party or this year’s party?

  5. Well i certainly hope there won’t be any photocopying of bums going on. Some christmas traditions should remain firmly in the late 80s to early 90s.

    I’ve heard of xmas in July but why in May?

  7. Jaysus…That Barack bugger is everywhere! The first thing I saw, when I got off the train here in Glasgow was a sticker with his ugly mug on it. :)

    Christmas in May? You’ll have to go into detail ’bout that party! :)

    Anthony; Yeah but that 100 euros usually goes to Dom Jones or Joe Dolem or some other crappy tribute band so I for one am delighted to dodge that!

    Thriftcriminal; And here was I wondering why Japanese women always seem so cheerful…

    Nick; *grins* I hope his cars are in good Nick (as it were), that is one salesman who doesn’t want an unhappy customer returning!

    Xbox4NappyRash; Um… It’s the last 6 days of last Christmas and the first 6 days of the next?

    Sam, Problemchildbride; Indeed… very happy to be out of that era, if not for the dodgy music alone (I usually get slapped when I slag Nik Kershaw). One of the drivers got arrested for streaking during a Celtic game, so there’s really no telling what’ll happen.

    Medbh; For shits and giggles? I have absolutely no idea!!!

    Jefferson Davis; Your writing’s taking on an Irish lilt ;) Obama’s better looking than most of the feckers grinning at us from every lamp pole in the country nowadays, so consider yerself lucky!

    It’s the cab company’s work doo… we don’t get much of a Christmas what with it being so busy, so they bumped it forward… a bit.
