Physical Therapy

Two women were playing golf. One teed off and watched in horror as her ball headed directly toward a foursome of men playing the next hole.

The ball hit one of the men. He immediately clasped his hands together at his groin, fell to the ground and proceeded to roll around in agony.

The woman rushed down to the man, and immediately began to apologize.

‘Please allow me to help. I’m a Physical Therapist and I know I can relieve your pain if you’d allow me.’

‘Oh, no, I’ll be all right. I’ll be fine in a few minutes,’ the man replied. He was in obvious agony, lying in the fetal position, still clasping his hands there at his groin.

At her persistence, however, he finally allowed her to help. She gently took his hands away and laid them to the side, loosened his pants and put her hands inside.

She administered tender and artful massage for several long moments and asked, ‘How does that feel’?

‘Feels great,’he replied; ‘but I still think my thumb’s broken!’

THE NEWS

Odd news from around the world

A dog that minds a baby: “Forget teddy bears. One baby girl has found the ultimate snuggle buddy: Boo the husky dog. Troy Slezak from Huntington Beach, California, filmed his seven-month-old daughter Stella playing with the giant pooch on the living room floor at home. Footage shows the duo rolling around together and even stopping for nose rubs. At one point Stella places one hand by Boo’s mouth. But the friendly dog doesn’t bite and calmly gives the tot a loving lick back. She even gives Stella a lick on the lips before the two lay down side-by-side. Even when her tummy, paws and ears are prodded, Boo the dog remains tranquil. Slezak says the canine is usually ‘very hyper’ but as soon as she sees Stella she is ‘calm’ and ‘careful’.

Rough black broad at Burger King: “Cell phone footage, recorded by the unnamed customer, starts with the woman repeatedly asking to speak to the manager to complain about the quality of a milkshake that she had just been served. After four separate requests to speak to a manager, the customer finally got the employee’s attention. The customer then asked for a refund, but the exchange quickly descended into a heated argument and the member of staff starts to curse at the customer. ‘Baby, you’re about to get it,’ the employee is heard saying. ‘Just wait. You’re gonna get your s***.’ ‘B****, I …’ the employee said before cutting herself off and walking around the counter to directly confront the customer in the main area of the fast-food restaurant. ‘Get off of my foot,’ the customer then demands. ‘This is assault. I’m calling the cops.’ ‘You wanna get slapped?’ the employee responded. ‘You wanna get slapped?’ Burger King has since confirmed that it is aware of the footage and in a statement said that the disgruntled employee had been fired.

Yummy dog: “An alligator reportedly attacked and ate a 100-pound dog at an Alabama park in early April. Pooch Mavis was brought to Arlington Park in Mobile sometime last weekend by her owner for a fishing trip, the man’s brother, Chris Wilson, told WWLP. Mavis was reportedly close to the park’s boat launch as the alligator attacked her after it jumped out of the water. According to the television station, Mavis was from Mobile’s Midtown section and viewed as a ‘neighborhood dog.’ ‘There’s definitely a loss not seeing her out and about in the front yards of all the neighbors walking around, and greeting people.’ On its website, the University of Florida warns ‘It’s very important to keep children and pets away from the water’s edge wherever alligators are likely to be present. Do not allow dogs to swim or explore waters that are known to have alligators because dogs look like prey to alligators.’

Game of Thrones saved my bacon… says pig farmer whose life was transformed when TV show turned his animals into stars: “He’s Irish pig farmer Kenny Gracey and it’s fair to say the global smash-hit fantasy epic has saved his bacon after the credit crunch left his rare-breeds business struggling to survive. For the herds of ‘medieval’ pigs seen on the drama’s twin continents of Westeros and Essos are Kenny’s. So, too, are the sheep, Joey the donkey, Suzie the goat, Yana the red deer and the plump red hens that scratch around in village scenes. In the new series, his two Irish wolfhound-deerhound crosses Murphy and Hennessy make their screen debut. And much of the ancient farm equipment – the rusty chains, horse collars, anvils, mangers and troughs – that dress the sets in Northern Ireland has been salvaged from teetering piles of scrap in Kenny’s junk-filled barns near Tandragee in Co Armagh where it had been gathering dust for decades. Occasionally Kenny gets into costume and appears on the show, if his animals need a helping hand on set. ‘It has funded the preservation of my rare and speciality breeds. I could not afford to keep all the animals I have commercially so it’s been a godsend.”

An arty getaway: “A Canadian couple have ditched busy city life to live on a colorful off-the-grid float-home and garden they’ve dubbed ‘Freedom Cove’. Wayne Adams and Catherine King created a completely self-sustainable float home consisting of 12 platforms that houses wooden structures, green houses and living spaces all interconnected through a wooden pathway. The magenta and turquoise floating structure, off the coast of Tofino, British Columbia, was built in 1992, and the couple, who have two children, live in the home year round. They have several greenhouses in which the family grows fruit and vegetables year round. Electricity is supplied to the home through solar panels and photovoltaic energy generators. The home also has a lighthouse, a myriad of pots filled with plans and flowers, and a collection of art made by its artistic owners, according to Tofino Time. The couple told Tofino Time that the floating home they’ve lived in for more than 20 years has been an on-going and ever-changing project since it’s beginning.”
