On a bus about a year ago, I had two girls of about 17 years behind me. One was saying to the other that her mum was teaching her to cook. The other one said, "Wow, wish I could cook. What's she teaching you?" The first replied, "we're doing McCains oven chips tonight."

Now that you mention it - Why is she missing her arms? Did some psychopathic maniac cut them off?

A classic, but still a good one.

"Politics" category? Or is it too similar to "People"?
    Posted by Wrongfellow on 13 Sep 2009.
Was thinking the same - it'll be a handy place to shovel all the billions of Bushisms we're going to get before long, too.

Hmm. A "Complaints" category, perhaps?
    Posted by JT on 15 Sep 2009.
But called what? People will assume "Complaints" is what they need to click if they want to complain about WIF...
    Posted by JT on 15 Sep 2009.
I think it fits in "Travel" with the other recent submissions.

If you place a piece of litmus paper on Lady Gaga it will reveal that she has a pH of 5. This means that she is in fact technically an acid.

This was asked in a politics forum, so I think it was a typo for "elections..."
