Happy One Cent Day...




Seasick turtle?


Haven't had a turtle post in a long time...

Sick Sea Turtle Swims Right to Hospital Doorstep
A sick sea turtle swims to the doorstep of the only place in the world that is licensed solely to treat turtles

Stop reading if you've heard this one
Why did the sea turtle cross the Florida Keys? To go to the doctor.
A loggerhead sea turtle nearly swam to the door step of the Florida Keys Turtle Hospital, the only licensed veterinary facility in the world that solely treats sea turtles.
The 73-pound reptile was suffering from a bacterial infection and somehow knew exactly where to go for help -- no Yellow Pages needed.
Staff members at the hospital actually waited several hours before treating the turtle because they thought it may have just been lost when it showed up at the dock of the treatment center.
But the turtle stuck around, probably unaware of the Turtle Hospital's "no walk-ins" policy.
Eventually, he was treated with meds and now has a new home in a blue tank until he's all better.
No doubt, the hospital will get plenty of referrals from their new patient when he is back with his friends -- Michelangelo, Leonardo, Donatello and Raphael.

WTF??? 75


Warning sought for burger the size of your head
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The staff dietitian at a doctors group is asking the West Michigan Whitecaps to put a warning label on the enormous new hamburger that it's selling this season. Susan Levin of the Washington-based Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine sent a letter to the Grand Rapids minor-league team on Tuesday. She's asking that the 4,800-calorie burger be labeled a "dietary disaster" that increases the risk of cancer and heart disease.
The 4-pound, $20 burger features five beef patties, five slices of cheese, nearly a cup of chili and liberal doses of salsa and corn chips — all on an 8-inch bun.
Whitecaps spokesman Mickey Graham said the team hasn't considered labeling the burger, which he says is a gimmick being promoted as a very unhealthy menu item.

Not making this a WTF??? because of the size of the burger-- This is a wtf because who is dumb enough to think this burger would be healthy? Has to be a liberal thing...
The pic isn't of the actual burger-- I wanted to use a better pic... that burger weighs like 110lbs.
