[AP, Cairo, Egypt, 31 Aug 1995]
Six people drowned Monday while trying to rescue a chicken that had fallen
into a well in southern Egypt. An 18-year-old farmer was the first to
descend into the 60-foot well. He drowned, apparently after an
undercurrent in the water pulled him down, police said. His sister and
two brothers, none of whom could swim well, went in one by one to help
him, but also drowned. Two elderly farmers then came to help, but they
apparently were pulled down by the same undercurrent. The bodies of the
six were later pulled out of the well in the village of Nazlat Imara, 240
miles south of Cairo. The chicken was also pulled out. It survived.
When I was in college, a colleague at WTBS (no, not the Turner
superstation, but the 14-watt campus radio station from which Turner later
bought the call letters) _swore_ that he heard an announcer say
"This is the Canadian Broadcorping Castration..."
A true story....
There was an elderly lady who lived out of town.
Once every year she would go visit her daughter
in Salem. Now, her doctor was in Salem, and every
year when she visited her daughter she would have
her annual appontment with her doctor. It was around
October when she came to visit. She schedualed her
apointment, and the morning of, she took a shower
and got ready to go. She yelled out the bathroom door
"Honey, can I use some of your FDS spray before we go?"
"sure mom" the daughter answers. The daughter took her
mom to the doctor and waited in the car until the
appoitment was over. About an hour later her mom walks
out with a horrified look on her face. She sits in the
car and doesn't say a word. The daughter at this point
was very upset and confused about her mothers silence
and asks what was wrong. The mother, in a shy voice says
" well, when I was on the table, the doctor was ready to
begin, and he looked up at me and said I looked very
'spiffy' today. I don't understand what he ment."The
daughter was very upset hearing this, knowing that it is
very unprofessional. She told her mother she would call
the doctor in the morning to find out why he said that.
When they got home the daughter was cleaning the bathroom
and noticed something odd. Her FDS spray was tuked back
into the cupboard, and their was a can of Halloween hair
glitter on the counter. She called out " mom, did you find
the FDS spray this morning?" "yes honey, it was sitting on
the counter next to the sink. I put it back when I used it."
Then she laughed uncontrollably knowing her mother didn't
have her glasses on when she got out of the shower, and used
the wrong can! Needless to say, She made herself very 'spiffy'
for the doctor and didn't realize it.
