On my way back from lunch with the ever awesome rule30, I was nearly run down in a crosswalk by a car sporting the bumper sticker "I SUPPORT WATERBOARDING".

Later, I passed an elderly couple just as the man said to the woman, "Honey, I need to take a piddle break."

The world is endlessly entertaining!

Which is more upsetting?
