the monday wtf
welcome to the ninth edition of the monday wtf, where we "celebrate" the inane, stupid, crazy, distasteful, and just plain weird crap that has happened in the past week. this doesn't necessarily limit itself to the internet, or just whatthefuchsia.com, but sometimes those are the easy pickings. if you'd like to submit something that you feel should be highlighted, information on how to do so is at the bottom of this column, and every column hereafter.thanks for the submissions! now triple them, slackers.
i can't tell if "you are what you eat" is good in this circumstance, or not. a year ago, a woman bought a happy meal from mcdonald's, and has left it on a shelf to document how it decays over time. the problem is, it hasn't. the happy meal looks exactly the same after one year as it did when it was thrust out of the drive through window one year ago. on one hand, it'd be great if i didn't change over the course of a year. on the other hand, i don't want to think about how my bowels are doing.
it's actually amazing how little "batshit crazy" appears from the great state of new jersey, so i'm thrilled and proud to finally present some asshattery from the northeast. there's a woman who has made it a life goal to become the world's fattest woman. if she cannot succeed at this task, she's willing to settle for being the world's fattest mom. she's currently weighing in at 600 pounds, and still rising. even worse, she apparently is paying for this by offering a for pay web site. so, there you go. culture, goals, hopes, and dreams.
now that there's nothing better to do but sleep and watch TV, seniors have figured out that marijuana's pretty awesome.
mike tyson has always been a strange individual. he was a fantastic boxer with a strangely soft voice. he bit someone's ear off. he may or may not have raped a few people, but he certainly went to prison for it. he plays off like a victim, but is incredibly fierce while boxing (see also "bit an ear off"). what's the next step for mike tyson? a tv show about pigeons, of course.
this is some seriously weird shit. whether you agree with the bill or not, it's actually pretty amazing that congress got something done.
