This Woman Is A Balloon-O-Phobe

Poor Yvonne is deathly afraid of balloons, so much so that she was homebound for 10 months due to her phobia. She doesn’t trust the way they float, runs in fear at the sight of them, and believes that a balloon will lead her to untimely death. How? I’m not sure. What happened to her when she was a kid? But more importantly, what was Maury thinking when he decided it would be a good idea to ambush her with a bouquet of balloons. Sick bastard. Now can we hear more about the woman who is afraid of mustard and pickles? [Effington] Keep reading »

Gone With The Wind

Some men get really creative when it comes to proposing marriage. My dad, for example, had a restaurant freeze my mother’s engagement ring in an ice cube and put it in her water glass. Luckily, she isn’t one of those people who likes to chew on ice. Well, Hajji, a London man, wanted his proposal to be truly spectacular, and he concealed a $12,000 engagement ring inside a helium balloon so that he could literally pop the question. An unfortunate turn of events followed. A gust of wind blew the balloon out of his hand. Hajji spent two hours searching for the ring-filled balloon, but he finally had to break the news to his girlfriend. After hearing that he lost her engagement ring, the Hajji’s girlfriend was pissed. “Now she is refusing to speak to me until I get her a new ring,” he said.
