What the what

Yesterday I found myself shaking my head and muttering, “What the what?!” on two different occasions:

Occasion #1: Goldfish Goes Under the Knife for Tumor Treatment.

At first I thought this was a hoax, but I can’t find anything to indicate that it is. I still find it hard to believe.

Occasion #2: Drive-Thru Funeral Window Lets You Mourn From Car.

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve heard lately?

Way, way, waaaaaay back in the 20th century, before digital cameras were invented.

This was my Facebook status yesterday:

Me to Pete, “How many years has it been?”

Him, calculating “Twenty… three.”

Me, nodding, “Yeah, that sounds about right.”
