If You Broke Your Brain

It's quite possible that some of you who like to stop by and sit on the couch for a while have had your brains broken.

Not by me. Not yet, anyway.

No, by the marathon of political, economic, and warfare news that citizens have endured for months on end.

What? You need a change of scenery? A change of pace? Something light-hearted, quirky, inane, or baffling?

Well, then, you've come to the right couch. Follow Alice and the White Rabbit down these links:

Best quote from one of these stories?

"Only a certain segment of people are interested in caskets and mourning clothes," said museum president Robert Boetticher. "We feel the papal exhibit will be quite a draw for other people, and that then when they come in they'll see everything else."

OK, I've read about the HUGE bonuses (WOW), the bad guy taken out with the candy cane, and the mortuary/museum/Vatican exhibit. NOW I think my brain is broken! (If it wasn't before, the last one did it.) ..... Love, Mom :)
