#1 – What has this world come to when we use the Pope as a means for personal, financial gain?
First, people were betting on who was going to win the Pope race :o)
Then, I just heard about a guy who bought the domain names for the top 5 Pope names he thought Pope John Paul II’s successor might select. That way, they would have to pay HIM if they want a website in their own name. And, one of the 5 he picked: popebenedictXVI.com. The current bidding price on eBay?… $16,100.00 from 103 bids!

#2 – According to my friends, Bob & Tom, there were 1.73 F-words PER MINUTE in a single episode of the HBO television show “Deadwood“. And this guy shows us the tally for Deadwood’s season two. Oh, but now there’s an entire WEBSITE that tallies the number of times the “F” word is used in the series Deadwood!
I’ve never seen the show, but I’ve heard from a bunch of people who have…

…make ya hungry?
Me too. I’ll see ya at Penn Station!
I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV. You can always find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
