Things That Leave Me Scratchin’ My Head {Coffee Talk}

Coffee Talk1. That Penn State situation is just getting crazier and crazier. I’m wondering if they’re going to just call it a day and close the school down? Is there any way for them to recover from this? The NCAA has levied all kinds of fines against the school, students are transferring, lawsuits are being filed… In fact, the lawyers for the victim #2 have released an audio of Sandusky offering the guy tickets to the Penn State game if he wants them. Nice. Sandusky ends the call by saying “I love you.” I’m not a violent person but even I want to punch his teeth in. Seriously? His actions are so far removed from love that there is no name for it.

2. And while I’m talking about creepy, a Florida puppeteer was arrested for talking explicitly online to another man about wanting to kidnap, rape, kill and eat small children. What in the world? What’s even scarier is that parents said that he used to host pizza parties at his house and all the neighborhood kids would wait for him to get home. Here’s a big hint for all of you moms and dads out there: if a guy is hosting parties for kids and he doesn’t have any of his own, err on the side of caution and keep your kids at home. I will never, for the life of me, understand people who just let their kids go hang out with strangers.

3. I’ve been trying to avoid the whole Jackson family drama since, well, forever, but this week when Momma Kate went missing, even I became concerned. You know, these kids are in for a world of hurt. Their father went too a lot of extremes to keep them out of the public eye, now it seems as if that entire family is doing everything to keep them front and center, even if it means destroying them… Isn’t it enough that they saw what their childhoods did to Michael, do they really have to inflict the same insanity on the next generation of Jacksons?

4. A hotel in England is replacing copies of the bible with copies of Fifty Shades of Grey. Blank stare.

What had you scratching your head this week?
