A Road Safety Message – Spoiler Alert – Beaver News

Driving can be dangerous if you are not fully concentrating on the job at hand. This is why a number of countries have now made it illegal to either talk or text on a mobile phone whilst in charge of a vehicle.

Perhaps there should be a new piece of legislation enacted in Florida after 37 year-old Megan Mariah Barnes caused a two vehicle crash whilst shaving her pubic hair!

In her defence, Ms Barnes told Highway Patrol officers she…

…was meeting her boyfriend in Key West and wanted to be ready for the visit

Which is why she got her ex-husband to lean over from the passenger side and take the wheel while she tidied things up down below. Predictably this is not the first time Ms Barnes has found herself in trouble with the law. The day before the crash she was convicted of DUI with a prior and driving with a suspended license. She now faces further charges of driving with a revoked license, reckless driving, leaving the scene of a wreck with injuries and driving with no insurance.

The arresting officer Gary Dunnick told reporters…

My phone has been ringing off the hook all day, and I know there’s a funny side to this, but it’s also deadly serious. This is a scary road and a lot of bad wrecks are caused by dumb stuff like this. It is unbelievable. I’m really starting to believe this stuff only happens in Florida Keys.

Dynamic Displays, who produced the six beavers in the parade, also made sixteen mounties, a dozen hockey players and four flying moose. 74 year-old Maria Reuten, who sewed the hockey players recalled…

It was exciting … the stuff you made is shown on television and the whole world is seeing it

Another employee, Cesar Gomez, summed it up neatly…

When people see the inflatables, they go crazy

You’re not wrong Cesar. And that’s why I’m busy stuffing my piggybank until I get the $5000 for my very own beaver. Apparently the moose cost more but who wants a moose when you can have a beaver?

And $5000!!! That’s a bargain…

For sale: vagina, unused, one careful lady owner

Ho-hum, here we go again, just another girl selling her virginity to pay for something she can’t afford. Seems like there’s one of these stories every week, right? At least that’s what I thought when news articles appeared yesterday about a 28-year-old Ecuadorian woman, Evelyn Duenas, running an internet auction in Spain, hocking off her hymen to the highest bidder. But some quick research found that this practice is far less common than first imagined. In the last two years, Google reveals only four well-publicised instances (with this latest being the fourth).
