Save the Tatas!

The Tata is the most widely used vehicle in India.  Here's a nice SUV made by them.

I can imagine how driving a Tata in Montana would go over......

It's More Fun Being a Redhead

It helps to have an Irish family name like O'Rourke too, because being redheaded seems to go with it.  Anyway, I so totally regard hair color to be a variable rather than a constant in one's life.

As a matter of fact, constancy is truly overrated.  I think that doing things on a whim makes for spice in life; and life should be enjoyed to the fullest.

A fashion sense question, though.  Is it a color clash to wear a U.T. orange and white jersey if you have red hair?  As a matter of fact, does an orange and white color scheme go with any hair color?

Sabrina the Teenage Witch's Roll Tide Panties

Here's a hot tip for those of you who are inclined to bet on football games: the Alabama Crimson Tide will definitely beat the Tennessee Vols.  The actress credits her wearing Alabama panties as being a factor in Alabama's tromping of Texas A & M.  Does this work only with actresses, or should I get some Griz or Blue Raider panties?

Obviously, the Knox News is trying to scrape up something to write about.

Checkerboards and Curses

Now for a little news from the Volunteer State:  On October 4th, Tennessee played their rival Florida at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville.  Coach Butch Jones requested that the fans "checkerboard" Neyland Stadium in a pattern of orange and white.  While the color scheme is Dreamsicle and White, that is U.T.'s colors.  Even though the fans had little lead time for doing so, they turned out handsomely in orange and white:





Things did not go so well in the game itself.  Florida beat Tennessee, 10 - 9.  Some of the fans expressed their disappointment through a profane chant: "F**K Florida.  That was really trashy and low-slung!

Last Names for Children

The Goddess of True Love had a sense of humor at times.  She managed to make Delbert Loose and Christine Bowels become smitten with each other.  The kept their own names, as couples often do nowadays.

After six months their bouncing baby boy, Darrell, appeared.  But what last name should baby Darrell get?  Darrell Loose, Darrell Bowels, or Darrell Loose-Bowels?  Our intrepid parents decided to name him Darrell Lowell, amalgamating the parents' names.  After all, why stick their beloved son with either ugly name?

The Tennessee Attorney General was recently asked an opinion by a concerned legislator: Can parents give a child of theirs' a surname different from either of theirs'?

The AG's opinion was that either parent's last name was acceptable, or hyphenating the two; but they could not give a child a new last name that was different from both parents'.

Thus a small bit of freedom gets eroded.  Gee, even Republicans can act so arbitrary at times.  In my opinion, the child's first and last name should be solely the parents' decision.
