Headlines

Husband and I always crack up over Jay Leno's headlines so we loved this best of video. (via Neatorama) We especially laughed over the "free twinkies" ad because it reminds us of the odd things that come up on our Freecycle email. When you join Freecycle you sign up to get emails that list things that folks in your area are giving away for free. You might think the email would be filled with giveaways like an old washing machine or maternity clothes. But no, people are constantly listing items like "Free: Half eaten box of Nilla Wafers. Still pretty fresh. Pick up only". And what's funnier is that in the next round of emails it will say "Taken: Box of Nilla Wafers." Who the hell went and got those stale cookies?

Too funny, that is always the best part of the show.....

I used to belong to our local freecycle at our last duty station and I would laugh my ass off at the stuff people would take, I don't remember food like you listed, but one I do remember was an old mattress where it listed urine stains on it, and someone took it....ugh....I guess there is a taker for just about anything out there that is free.....in life.

If I am in the middle of some work when it comes on, I always stop just to watch it. Even if I am a little behind, lol. That's always my favorite part.
