      A serious case of toilet humour?

Only in America…..A woman in the US state of Iowa, who is the butt of all jokes, has been charged with stealing toilet paper from a courthouse. And the most halarious part of it all, she is facing “potentially three years of incarceration for three rolls of toilet paper”, that even had the police Chief in fits of laugheter.

Yes, you heard it right, thats one year per roll of toilet paper. The state legislators apparenly really value toilet paper, they used to use poison ivy over in Iowa up unitl recently.

Suzanne Marie Butts insists it was the first time she had stolen the paper, but she declined to answer further questions on advice from her attorney.

The fifth-degree theft charge normally carries a sentence of less than a year in jail. But Butts could face more time if convicted under the state’s habitual offender law because she has prior theft convictions.

Butts, 38, was caught last week after an employee saw her taking three rolls of two-ply tissue from a storage closet in Marshall County.

Video: See the local Iowa news report on Butts, quite a laugh!

Jericho; TV fans go nuts after cancellation, literally.

Jericho nuts  Not crazy, its f*#king nuts!

Passionate fans of TV show Jericho have launched, and may be winning, a campaign to have the show put back on the air by sending millions of nuts to CBS TV executives across the United States.

In May, when CBS Television cancelled the show about life in a small rural town after a nuclear holocaust, legions of fans were incenced, and plans were soon hatched to have the show re-instated. The idea to send nuts was soon chosen, and with a little help of some smart marketing from nutsonline.com, the campaign took off, and now some rumours say the show may get 8 more episodes. 

Quoting an anonymous source, The Associated Press Tuesday said CBS is reconsidering its decision to cancel the show. A decision on whether to bring the show back, probably for a mid-season run, is imminent. Is this a PR stunt to stem the flow of nuts, or is it genuine? Only time will tell Jericho fans.

Jericho cast and babes…

Why nuts?

In the final episode of “Jericho,” the town is under siege from a neighboring community.  When asked to surrender, lead character Jake Green, played by Skeet Ulrich, has a one-word response: “Nuts.”

The response is a reference to Gen. Anthony McAuliffe, a U.S. Army general who in World War II was surrounded by Germans demanding his surrender. His response: “Nuts.”

All I have to say is, what a waste of food.
