Daily Snort

Read this on MSNBC this morning:

Jobless claims at lowest level since January
New Labor Department data show decline of 34,000 in latest week

The number of U.S. workers filing new claims for jobless aid unexpectedly fell by 34,000 last week, sinking to the lowest level since late January, new Labor Department data showed on Thursday.”

Wait, didn't Microsoft just lay off over 3000 people yesterday? What about all the other companies that are laying people off ? The article goes on to say DuPont plans to cut 2000 jobs.

WTF? Are we supposed to be excited about this?

So, YAY, unemployment is momentarily down this week. However more suckage is on the way, when everyone who was layed off this week, files their claims next week?

And then there's this little gem on Madonna:

Mercy’s father questions Madonna’s morals

I personally find this headline hilarious. No need to read any further, really.

See, there's this dude in Malawi (Africa), who's allegedly the father of a child Madonna is trying to adopt. The headline is supposed to be his reaction to Madonna's wacko out fit for The Met gala. Which isn't even one of her bigger calamities.

He's quoted as saying, “What morals can a woman of 50 have, who has no qualms in showing her delicate parts and displaying herself like that in front of her children?”. He does have a point though.

God forbid he sees ANYTHING Madonna did during the 80's and early 90's. His head might explode.

Delicate parts”. He really doesn't know Madonna.
