Just When You Thought You Heard It All News (4-8-2016)

J.C. Penney has been getting a lot of attention lately, thanks to a viral photo that interpreted the floral print on one of the retailer’s skirts as a period stain.......

Really?!?! If nobody ever said anything who would know?

But Penney’s is getting the final word in with a mic-dropping Twitter post.

The skirt in question is a Worthington Side Slit Pencil Skirt, selling on the company’s website for $23.99. 

The ad copy says, "Our side slit pencil skirt lets you set the day’s agenda whether you are in the office or at another important function.”

The photo clearly shows the flower is placed on the wearer’s right side, but things change when movement is involved, as this photo posted on imgur shows

Yeah, on second thought, it does look s little suspect. Just a little....

Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump appears to have a passionate supporter, or as I like to call them passionate morons), in Joseph Hornick, a New Jersey man who faces a $2,000 fine or 90 days in jail for flying a flag emblazoned with the billionaire candidate’s name over his home.............

Local officials said the flag violates an ordinance prohibiting the display of political signs more than 30 days ahead of an election and issued him a summons. New Jersey’s primary is on June 7.

For weeks, Hornick has displayed the blue flag with Trump’s “Make America Great Again!” campaign slogan on a pole outside his two-story West Long Branch house, at a busy intersection near Monmouth University, in a show of his support for Trump. Trump has been campaigning this week in neighboring New York in an effort to snag the Republican presidential nomination. 

Despite being issued a summons on March 25 for the violation, Hornick apparently intends to keep it up.

“The fine can be in the Millions of dollars! That flag will never come down!” he wrote in a defiant Facebook post.

Talk about some good eatin’, good handbags, good shoes, good belts............

A monster alligator, said to weigh 800 pounds, was recently hauled out of Florida’s marshes after being blamed for snacking on a landowner’s cattle, and now this ravenous reptile, given to charity, will be a meal for some hungry humans. 

The huge beast was pulled Saturday from a pond at private hunting grounds near Okeechobee. Its head appeared to be the size of a small boy.

Blake Godwin, a hunting guide for Outwest Farms, which offers wild boar, alligator and turkey hunts, said they found the gator with the remains of some of their missing livestock.

“[The alligator] surfaced and he was coming our way,” he said, “Even doing this for 10 years, something like that will spook you.”

Godwin said a well-placed shot from a hunter with a .30-caliber rifle killed the animal. When they pulled it out of the water, they used a tractor to hold it up.

Speaking to Fox 13 News, he said they plan to donate the meat to charity and will have its body preserved for display.

“It is hard to believe that something this big exists in the wild,” he told the station. “Hunting is a way of life for us and we are very proud of it!”

Though the backyard beast is absolutely a sight, state wildlife officials believe it’s smaller than their current record holder which measured 14-feet, 3 1/2-inches in length.

“It is not unusual for large, male alligators of this size to be harvested each year as part of Florida’s Alligator Management Program,” Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Spokesman Tony Yong said in an email to the Huffington Post Wednesday.

“While the alligator has not been officially measured, the person holding the (hunting) permit, Lee Lightsey, has indicated to FWC that the alligator was not big enough to surpass the current record,” he said.
