“Blue Balls Mystery Close to Being Solved”

Now, that’s my kind of headline.

Best, of all, it’s straight out of the Guardian.

On first reading, the question appears to be, why are those balls blue?

Numerous reasons come to mind, from the chronic to the acute.

But the real question is not why the blue balls, but how did they get there?

It seems that blue balls rained from the sky onto a garden in Dorset, England, creating a local frenzy about the origin and makeup.

These particular blue balls have been whisked off to the applied sciences section of Bournemouth University for a good going-over.

We are relieved to learn that these are not the balls of aliens, blue or otherwise, and await the final solving of this most curious case.

Ethics: Reg Wants to Know
As I sit here and read the various issues surrounding our International I find it interesting the various positions my union brothers and sisters take based on competing influences. Whether it's the issue of ethics or the vote on the conference floor, I would hope our brothers and sisters across the International would want the…

Firehouse Culture: “Say You Want To Be My Bitch”
How and why are you comparing this to slavery? You do a disservice to every hard-working firefighter in FDNY, both white and especially black. It sounds like typical locker room crap. You think they did that because he's black? I'll bet they would have done it to the covering guy regardless of his color. Try…
