Spearmint Rhino is a strip-club franchise in the US, Zen. Oxnard has one. Only strip club I've ever seen that had ivy-covered walls.

no, but to be accurate - Spearmint Rhino operates throughout the United States,
Canada, United Kingdom, Central Europe, Russia and Australia.

Little old lady who?

Sorry, didn't mean to yodel at you.

I just think of little old ladies being like 80 or 90. My mom, 71, doesn't even qualify.

Mostly I just wanted the yodel joke.

Thank, Lamp.

glatt: I looked for a lederhosen smilie. Are lederhosen appropriate? Do Swiss wear them? Or just germans? I don't know, and I'm part Swiss.

edit: there was a lederhosen looking hat guy, but it turned out he was a smoking pimp.

Iraq militia stone youths to death for "emo" style
Sat, Mar 10 12:11 PM EST

By Ahmed Rasheed and Mohammed Ameer

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - At least 14 youths have been stoned to death in Baghdad in the past three weeks in what appears to be a campaign by Shi'ite militants against youths wearing Western-style "emo" clothes and haircuts, security and hospital sources say.

Militants in Shi'ite neighborhoods where the stonings have taken place circulated lists on Saturday naming more youths targeted to be killed if they do not change the way they dress.

The killings have taken place since Iraq's interior ministry drew attention to the "emo" subculture last month, labeling it "Satanism" and ordering a community police force to stamp it out.
I kept expecting the punchline and the link to The Onion, but nope, that's from Reuters. More at http://mobile.reuters.com/article/id...20310?irpc=932

I'm conflicted about this. I mean, emos are kinda annoying whiny brats, but you know, maybe just a light beating or something. Give them some scars they can really enjoy sulking about.

Maybe they could burn 'em, you know, just a little.
