Double jeapoardy apparently doesn't apply to deity

KFC playfully takes on PETA and Pamela Anderson

Headline: "Pamela turns down lunch date with KFC boss" (AZ Central.com)

Pamela Anderson has been criticizing KFC for its treatment of chickens. The chairman and CEO of the company wrote and asked her to lunch to keep her "fully abreast" of the company's ethical practices. "Pamela, the facts are 'Stacked' against you," he wrote.

Subheadline:

"Chickens You Eat May not Always Live Fairly Good Lives"

Prof. Ian Duncan, an animal-welfare expert at the University of Guelph:

"Things are not quite as bad as PETA is making out, but it's certainly not all sweetness and light, it's not a bed of roses, for the chickens. Most consumers assume that the animals that they are eating have fairly good lives and I'm afraid that's not always true."

Question: If they are leading a "fairly good life," what are they doing on my plate? This guy has a pretty low standard for a good day.

Headline: "Oral Roberts' Wife in Coma After Fall" (AP)

It looks like the faith healer and popularizer of "seed faith" is about to lose his beloved wife.

Oral Roberts on meeting his wife, Evelyn:

"On the way back from fishing," he writes, "I stopped my car on a sandbar to talk." He said, "Evelyn, my huge, happy, hilarious heart is throbbing tumultuously, tremendously, triumphantly, in a lasting, long-lived love for you. As I gaze into your beauteous, bounteous, beaming eyes, I am literally lost in a daring, delightful dream in which your fair, felicitous, fancy-filled face is ever present like a colossal, comprehensive constellation. Will you be my sweet, smiling, soulful, satisfied spouse?" To that Miss Evelyn replied, "Listen here, boy! If you're trying to propose to me, talk in the English language." So, he said, "I did it over again, and I was accepted. And we sealed it with a kiss."

The grand predictive power of evolutionary theory...


Headline: "Human evolution at the crossroads" (MSNBC)

"Scientists are fond of running the evolutionary clock backward, using DNA analysis and the fossil record to figure out when our ancestors stood erect and split off from the rest of the primate evolutionary tree. But the clock is running forward as well. So where are humans headed?"

"Evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins says it's the question he's most often asked, and 'a question that any prudent evolutionist will evade.'"

We sure are impressed.

"The board agreed to give her husband, Dave Meyer, the board's vice president, an annual salary of $450,000 in each of those same two years."
