B'day, Funny/Not Funny

First off, not having my machine means I'm all kinds of messed up on my birthday announcements. So, my apologies to wesa, who I hope had a great day.

The Funny: Family Finds Raw Meat Instead Of iPod Inside Sealed Box - apparently, a Wal-Mart employee tampered with some iPod boxes, removing the trinket and adding raw meat. Damn, that's just hilarious.

The Not-Funny: Pupils Being Given 'Patriotism' Tests in Washington State Schools - seems some little test was given to 10th graders in English class, ten statements that they were expected to write whether they agreed or disagreed with. This had nothing to do with anything they were studying, not related to any curriculum. What is this, 1984? We testing loyalty and fealty or something? Can't say I see any point to this, at all.
