Hi lala, hope you take it easy today and sorry about your fall. Dark poetry usually comes from dark people. No way referring to skin color. lol

Here is a slide show to bring a laugh to you.

29 burned-out signs with unintentionally funny messages

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign. Some with messaging about tax preparation, some for nail salons, some just telling you to stay off your phone when ordering food. Signs aren't all from the "man," meant to keep you down and make you follow along like a good little sheeple. Some actually have (almost subliminal) meaning, and not so subliminal when letters burn out. Messages like "The Ho Depot" and "Crapbooks." Yeah, it's juvenile, but see if you can't stop your smile when you look at these 29 photos of unintentionally funny signs.

Don't know if you seen this story and video that went viral of this pet owner. It is something else:

Heartbreaking photo of a man holding his dog's paw through a pound cage prompts well-wishers to donate the $400 to free him after it was secretly posted on Facebook

Dave Thomas, from California, was jailed for a few days for traffic violations and his dog Buzz Lightyear, a pitbull mix, taken away

This is the heartbreaking photo taken of a man weeping as he comforts his beloved dog through cage bars after he could not afford to have his pet released from the city pound.

Dave Thomas, from San Bernardino, California, was jailed for a few days for traffic violations on February 13 - leading to his dog Buzz Lightyear being impounded.

After Mr Thomas was released from prison, he could not afford to pay the $400 fees required to have his two-year-old pit bull mix released from its cage at the shelter.

Scroll down for video
Fortunately for Mr Thomas, 36, a photographer and animal lover Maria Sanchez was at the shelter at the same time. She snapped a picture of the man sitting on the ground and stroking the dog's paw through the metal bars and feeding him Cheetos.
She told ABC:'He was pouring water into his dog's water bowl, his dog sat there and licked up the water for about a minute, he sat down next to him and started weeping.'

Ms Sanchez posted the photo to her Facebook page and appealed to the kindness of strangers.
Within days the money was raised thanks to well-wishers - but Ms Sanchez still had to track down Mr Thomas because he had not left his contact details with the shelter.

She posted fliers all over the local area and appealed for help online. The amount raised has now totaled more than $2,000.

He was finally tracked down by on Monday evening by the local station and a highly emotional and relieved Mr Thomas was told he would be reunited with his beloved Buzz the following day.

Dave Thomas Gets pitbull Buzz back from Animal Pound
http://www.youtube.com/watch...

Dave & Buzz Reunited !


Update: Man allegedly threatens to sue woman who helped him get his dog

Dave Thomas has allegedly threatened to sue the stranger who collected donations so he could get his dog out of a shelter.

A man reunited with his dog thanks to the kindness of a stranger is now allegedly threatening to sue her, Los Angeles' KTLA and other media reported.
The woman known as Maria Sanchez on Facebook said she collected donations to get Dave Thomas' dog out of a shelter.

According to KABC, Thomas was arrested Friday for failure to appear in court for two traffic violations. The police had animal control take his 2-year-old pit bull mix, Buzz, to the San Bernardino City Animal Shelter.

KABC reported that Thomas needed to pay more than $400 to get his dog back, but had only $6.

Sanchez, a dog lover and photographer, posted a picture of Thomas and his dog at the shelter on her Facebook account. The image, which shows Thomas sitting on the concrete floor while Buzz reaches a paw out from under a cage, quickly went viral and donations poured in.

But now Thomas supposedly aims to sue Sanchez, according to the LA news station, she said in an interview with MSN News.

Sanchez confirmed that the Facebook account is hers and that she helped raise donations to get the dog out of the shelter. She said she got a call from KTLA Channel 5 telling her Thomas wanted to sue her.

"KTLA received a call from Thomas claiming that Sanchez was withholding the money raised for Buzz. KTLA then contacted Sanchez about the matter," the report reads.

On Facebook, Sanchez said she transferred $842.07 into her bank account to reimburse herself for shelter fees, vet fees and supplies from PetSmart that'd she'd put on her personal credit card. According to KTLA, the donations far exceeded the $400 shelter fee.

She said she hasn't spoken to Thomas since the incident. "His wife wouldn't let me talk to him," she said. She said he tried calling her back, but she hung up and does not plan to speak with him in the future.

"He got what we raised the money for and the rest is going to be donated to the other animals in the shelter or refunded" to donors, she said. "He's not going to get another dime."

Sanchez doubts Thomas will follow through with the threatened lawsuit. "He couldn't even get his dog out of the shelter," she said. "How is he going to sue me?"

Sanchez confirmed that a YouTube video of a voicemail purported to be Thomas threatening to sue her was posted by her. Earlier in the week, the same YouTube account also posted a video of Thomas and Buzz being reunited.

She called the entire situation "really unfortunate. You couldn't even imagine this was going to happen."

She said when she drove Thomas and his dog back to their home she told him that the remaining donations would be used for other dogs in the shelter.

"He just sat there nodding like this sounds like a good plan," Sanchez said.

She said in the days since the incident she's gotten a flood of emails supporting her and asking about other dogs she's posted about on her Facebook page.

"I just want everyone to switch their focus away from him," Sanchez said. "I just want to go back to doing what I was doing when I saw him there, which was taking pictures to share on Facebook of the dogs that are homeless."

VOICEMAIL FROM DAVE THOMAS THREATENING TO SUE ME :(
Published on Feb 20, 2013

DAVE AND BUZZ UPDATE:
I just got a phone call from KTLA channel 5. Apparently, Dave has called to inform them that I am keeping the money raised for his dog. I have transferred $842.07 into my bank to reimburse myself for the shelter fees, vet and PetSmart shopping spree that I put onto my personal credit card. I had a discussion regarding the remainder of the donations and how he would like to spend them. I said it would be a good idea to pay off any outstanding tickets so that he will not be taken to jail in the future for having a warrant for unpaid traffic tickets. I asked if he had any bills that were due at the time. I told him that every dime that was donated would go to him and Buzz, but that I would not be giving him the cash. I explained to him that the money that was donated was a blessing for him, I wanted to be sure that we respected that and used the donations responsibly. He sat next to me and nodded his head, Not one response, question or concern.

After I hung up with KTLA channel 5, I tried to call Dave. His wife would not let me speak to him. She screamed at me that I was stealing their dog's money. She said they have called the news stations and that if I did not give them their money, they were going to call the police.

I am exhausted from this entire experience. This is the last thing I needed or expected. I will not be giving Dave or his wife one single penny, what I will do is refund the money that was donated to Dave. I have had my life and the lives of my children devastated by drug addiction. I will play no part in supporting anyone's habit. I just can't.

That being said, if you would like me to refund your donation that was made for Dave, please email me at mcs1030@aol.com and put REFUND as the subject. I will send the refund tonight. If you would like to transfer your donation that was for Dave to another urgent animal in this album, please email mcs1030@aol.com and put DONATE TO URGENT SBC DOG. I will put your donation towards a homeless animal that will live or die depending on whether or not a rescue has the funds to help them. If I do not get a response within 1 week of this posting, I will refund the amount donated with an explanation of why it is being refunded. I know not all who have donated will see this post.

So to sum this up, I have been reimbursed for all expense to rescue Buzz from the high kill San Bernardino City Shelter and reunite him with his owner Dave Thomas. There are donations leftover. The donations will NOT go to Dave after the stunt he has pulled. If you still want Dave to have your donation, I will have to ask you to send it to him personally. I do not have an email for him, maybe he will post it.

No good deed goes unpunished, right?

Thank you for understanding why I cannot proceed with this as planned. For those who disagree with my decision, please keep your thoughts to yourself. I don't think I can take another hit right now.


How sad right? He should be ashamed.

lala, you will like this one. Cat and dog videos are such a treat.

Cat ruining fellow cat's duck hunt may be drummed out of cat union

Look, there's a code about this sort of thing. When a cat has a big-ass duck dinner in the crosshairs, a fellow cat is supposed to back off. No encroaching, no poaching. However, above all else what the fellow cat is not supposed to do is sneak up behind the engaged cat and pounce, scaring the bejabbers out of it and alerting the winged prey to flap off to safety. That's just damned embarrassing to cats everywhere (the deafening snickers you hear right now are from birds and mice everywhere), and there's likely to be a fine and a suspension of all cat privileges for the offending tabby. So much for the solidarity of the species.

video is available at Nascar.com ... the entire front end of the car back to the firewall is in the stands, including the engine and front axle and tires. No report on injuries yet. Tony Stewart won the race but refused to celebrate due to concern for fans.

I don't believe there ever was a real Una that died a few weeks ago. The man I saw on the funeral home site who was supposedly Una did not look like the type of man who would have posted profanities the way Una did. I think Una is actually a created persona by a topix employee who trolls these threads just to stir up conversation and keep these threads going. The Una on this thread basically became ineffective (by topix standards) so the persona was made to look like it passed away, but that persona lives on in the other threads. There is a lot of deceit that goes on in topix and personas are created just to keep these threads going. Did anyone ever wonder why Una's profanities weren't being deleted early on? It was only when I pointed it out and started questioning the topix mods did they then start deleting his posts to make it look like he was just another regular poster when in fact he really was just another topix created persona.
The deceit of these topix mods and hired trolls sickens me because it is so obvious to me.
