Gingery newsroundup

And the Tea bagger’s pet goes home
Well, ABC should be happy with the 24 million viewers who took out their time to watch Dancing with the Stars finale. Bristol infamousity must have riled viewers enough to make them sit up and watch and gun for Jennifer Grey (no pun intended though I hope conscientious viewers wore bullet proof vests. Who can tell, some other angry Wisconsin man might have just come with a gun).
I was never really a Dancing with the Stars fan. Haven’t watched TV in ages. I only got a wind of it over the brouhaha last week when my favourite R n B star Brandy got voted off. Brandy is one teen to adult artiste who has managed to maintain her goody two shoe image (No drugs, no prison, no pregnancy, no divorce, no bankruptcy). I just love her for that!!!!and I am glad she gave a great account of herself at DWTS, Bristol or no Palin. msheeew
Here’s saying a warm Congratulations to Jennifer Grey.  You have confirmed it  – Life begins at Fifty!!!!

Of engagements and jinxed rings..
Prince William announced his engagement to Kate Middleton. (Old news I know). A reporter says their story reminds us of childhood fairytales and princess fantasies? I guess they were intimating that she wasn’t of royal pedigree. Hello?? Like he had plenty pretty pedigreed young females available to choose from.
But I am looking at their pictures and they look so radiant, even after 2 years of cohabitation….they must really be in love. And that is the only thing that warms this cynical heart. I wish them well. And please can we quit the rumors of her engagement ring being jinxed. Come on people, stop the hate!

Wrong move, Jessica
Jessica Simpson gets engaged a week after her ex-husband got engaged. Is it a contest? First, I didn’t know she and Nick Lachey were divorced!!! What rock have I been hiding myself….. again? I am only interested in this story cause Hollywood held Jessica up as this role model teenagers should aspire to because she saved herself for marriage. I wonder what they are saying now…….cos If she were my daughter I’d slap the taste outta her mouth if she did something as silly as this. Not only does rumor have it that she dished out a parting gift of N10m to Nick but rumor also has it that the new fiancé doesn’t have an income. Do you see the same dollar signs he is seeing? Gosh, now it’s really confirmed she’s a dumb blonde.

Who pays for these Studies???
1.       Researchers have now discovered how cats drink water.
2.       Another study has also unraveled the Physics behind the wet dog shake.
For the latter, one of the justifications I hear is that it could lead to new innovations in Drying machines. Yeah right. I can just imagine the tagline -  a Drying machine that dries just like Rosco does!!

Amazon et tu?
Amazon has been accused of selling books promoting sexual exploitation of children. Books include "The Pedophile's Guide to love and pleasure"and videos depicting pre-pubescent Eastern European and Asian girls, some of whom are nude. They are listed for sale on Amazon in the U.S. and Japan. 
In their defense, Amazon claims it is censorship not to sell certain books simply because we or others believe their message is objectionable. "Amazon does not support or promote hatred or criminal acts, however, we do support the right of every individual to make their own purchasing decisions”.
The activists who want to fight Amazon or the publishers might have a tough job of it making a legal action stick cause it’s mainly pictures.
The point is even if there’s a lack of sexual abuse in the imagery, if photos focus on sexual aspects of a child then it is wrong!!! I hope people stop using them just to register their displeasure. For such a large company, it beats me that they can’t understand what being responsible is..… eejits!.

A Tragic Love Story…
An 86 yr old man who is suspected of blowing a hole through the head of his wife of 70 yrs has been taken into custody by the police.
A wife he had been visiting thrice a day, feeding and bathing her since she became increasingly senile. Rather heartbreaking cause he probably thought it was mercy killing.
But the law doesn’t work that way does it? And really where would the world be if we took the laws into our hands like that. But I can also imagine the tragedy of seeing your wife become someone unrecognizable. Someone who mightn’t even recognize you anymore. Where’s the joy of growing old together? It must have been pretty depressing. If the police hadn’t come to take him, I am almost sure he would have hastened to join her artificially or naturally. Lets spare a prayer for this old man. He did wrong but let’s focus on the motive behind it. It was love.

And to cheer you up…
And I just had to share this sweet video about the soldier who surprises his sons with an early return from Afghanistan.
Sometimes I really love msnbsc news.
