Puts a smile on my face

One thing that I really like about DC is that it's easy for me to stay abreast on current events. That is thanks to the daily Express, a publication of The Washington Post, I read on my morning commute. My two favorite sections are "Eye Openers" and "Lookout Online". These sections share funny and outlandish stories and quotes. I wanted to share several that have brought a big smile and some laughs. Sorry if you find any of these offensive.

"I was gathering clothes for my mother to wear for her funeral. So, I go into her room and I am looking for undergarments and, behold, look what I found...Why does this 61-year-old woman have thongs?" encountered an eye-oopener when picking out her mother's final resting outfit

"Iran, try as I might, I can't take you seriously when you continue to allow a man in a Banana Republic windbreaker to run your country." --@williegeisti of MSNBC's "Morning Joe" tweets about the fashion sensibilities of Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

"There were buzzards flying overhead, and I wanted to see what they did." --Dean Richard Mark, 53, saying why he was naked behind a high school in Zephyr Cove, NV; he was arrested June 8th

"Sometimes when it comes to certain people going braless, it's obvious. But who's staring to see if that person doesn't have underwear on?" --Brooksville, FL, Mayor Joes Bernardini who dissented in a decision by the town's council to require city employees to wear underwear at work; spandex was also banned

"Horn honking which is done to annoy or harass others is not speech." --a judge said in a ruling against a woman who repeatedly honked her car horn to bug a neighbor in the early morning

"If those who made the atomic bomb and used it are ready to abandon it...of course, we will welcome and facilitate this process in all ways." --Vladimir Putin
