From the New York Daily News: Talk about luxury in the woods! Michelle Obama showed off her more expensive taste in fashion by carrying a $5,950 VBH black alligator manila clutch while strolling the wooded landscape outside of Moscow, Russia this week.
Just trying to encourage the unemployed back home. Brilliant, ay?
LONDON (Reuters) - Fancy 80,000 dollars a year on a stress-free job with flexible working hours and no need to wear a suit? Well, grab your black pointy hat, take out that rusty black hessian drape from the back of the wardrobe and refresh your memory on how to turn your grumpy neighbor into a mouse. Somerset tourist attraction Wookey Hole caves is advertising for a "witch" and has already received 100 applicants since the beginning of the week.
Application forms have been sent to Maureen Dowd, Cynthia McKinney, Jane Fonda, and assorted others.

AURORA, Ill., July 7 (UPI) -- An Illinois woman told police her car was covered in barbecue sauce and pickles on two consecutive nights. The 23-year-old Aurora woman, who was not identified by police, told investigators that her 2001 Chevrolet Impala was first covered in condiments July 1 while it was parked in the driveway outside of her family home, the Chicago Tribune reported Tuesday.
Actually, it's GM's latest luxury finish.
(AP) Call it the case of the dead cells _ both telephones and the ones in the brain. Employees at a Telefonica Movistar cell-phone store in Morelia, Mexico say they arrived Tuesday morning to find that the store had been broken into. An examination of the shop revealed the only items missing were hollow replica phones for display that are completely useless for making calls.
Actually, a very smart thief. Look at all he'll save in monthly charges.
