more broken news from Lisleman

I have not set up the Lisleman TV tray news desk for a few months.  This year, stories of a flood and a lady with massive parking tickets were reported.  The Lisleman news desk is not consistent nor reliable.  The Lisleman news feed fails to feed even a tiny bird's appetite.  However, you can depend on the news reports being biased and aged with a sprinkle of wild speculation.

You know those news reports that have your hair standing on end?  This is not a story like that.  I wish I had stories like that because I probably would attract more readers (oh you have made this far so you can read right?  you are not here because of a troll doll fetish).

This story has a twist.

Who remembers Chubby Checker?  Here's a hint he is the twist part of the story.

A judge (da judge? as in here come da ...) has ruled that 71 year-old Chubby Checker can sue Hewlett Packer (HP) over a genital-measuring app.  Personally, I would not want to be over any genital related app.

There a few bits of news to be found here.

  • Chubby Checker is alive
  • Chubby Checker was smart enough to trademark his stage name
  • there is a market for genital related apps
  • Anthony Weiner does not appear to be involved
  • why did Mr. Weiner miss his chance on this app?
  • why would you need an app to measure something in your pants?
  • does the app keep the user's private parts numbers private? 
I am certainly no expert since I don't even own a smartphone.  Hopefully what's in HP's pocket will be revealed in court and the twister's name will be restored.

Before my TV tray falls over which would a dramatic way to end the news cast if I were to record one, I want to alert you the latest addition to Google Streetview - mountain tops!

Very cool with a 360 view from on high.  This link should take you to the "streetview" of the Aconcagua summit, Argentina.

Uh, I actually do have a troll fetish because they're usually naked. (just kidding) My kids love Google Earth and like to look for places they are familiar with. I guess I didn't know one way or the other if Chubby Checker was still alive or not.

I hope your kids enjoy looking around the top of a mountain. I find troll dolls funny. Kinda like seeing a baby's bare butt. thanks.

Change it to Chub Check and it should all be ok

lisleman said...

yeah that would have probably worked. I would have called it "are you happy to see me".

I agree with your list of news found within your post. I didn't know Chubby Checker was still alive nor did I know that there was an app to check out one's private parts. Actually, I didn't know there was a market for that sort of thing. I must lead a small life. Is there an ap to measure small lives?

if there is not an app yet, someone would certainly make one if you gave them the idea. thanks
