No dignity

What would be your reaction if you were walking home alone at midnight, and a van slowly started keeping pace with you? And what if the side door of the van opened, and someone within the van started hurling things at you? If you are anything like me, you would attempt to simultaneously run and duck and cover, which would make you look like a big flightless bird. And if you are like me, you would freak out more and more as the van followed along beside you, until you finally got hit with what they were hurling at you.

And it was a newspaper.

So either through oversight or through malice, the paperboy almost made me crap my pants last night.

This did not endear me any further to print news.

I can't stop giggling at this image! Sigh. For some reason, I initially imagined bite sized funfetti cupcakes being hurled at you, mario cart style.

Thanks for putting a smile to my face this Monday.
