Love the First Amendment. It helps us spot the assholes from a safe distance.

Forget the high-minded principles of our Founding Fathers, kiddies. In the real world, letting the fascists, totalitarians, morons, psychopa...

I was not going to use this one, but it just got weird...

Sure, the whole thing is weird....But where do you think the weirdness is kicked up a notch?

UPI: Man sees amputated leg as moneymaker

A North Carolina man who claims he bought an amputated leg fair and square says he wants to use it to help his town.

Shannon Whisnant lives in Maiden, a small town near Charlotte. He apparently did not know what he was getting when he bought a barbecue smoker at an auction. The leg was inside.

Whisnant would like to put the leg on display. He told the Charlotte Observer that he would charge adults $10, seniors $5 and children $3. Amputees would get in for free.

I vote for this spot right here. Read that last line again.

"It'd be a great for tourism," he said. "Maiden could use some fresh money. We've got nothing but old money around here, and we could use a little extra cash flow."

John Wood of Greenville, S.C., has other ideas. He lost the leg in 2004 when it was amputated after a plane crash and again this year when the storage facility sold his smoker.

Wood, who got the leg back from police, says he does not see the leg as a moneymaker.

Whisnant says the pair should share it.

"I told him I'd share custody of it," Whisnant said. "Kind of like young'uns."

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
