Nope, “Udaho” sounds like the message sent to a high school basketball coach fired for a photo she posted on Facebook.
Pocatello High School girls basketball coach Laraine Cook was fired in late October by the Orwellian-sounding “School District 25″ for a photo that showed her fiance’s hand over her bikini-clad breast.
Cook pulled the photo within 24 hours of posting it and high school administrators reprimanded her in July.
In October, an anonymous busybody sent a copy of the photo to the school district, which fired Cook and reprimanded her fiance, Pocatello High head football coach Tom Harrison.
Cook led the girls basketball team to a third-place showing at the 2013 state tournament. Harrison has won 10 state football championships and was inducted into the Idaho High School Football Hall of Fame in 2000.
Cook is filing a lawsuit against
How big is football in south Georgia?
It’s so big that they use public school buses to ferry folks to the really big college games.
The Valdosta Daily Times reports school buses stolen from Lowndes County in south Georgia have been recovered at the site of the Georgia-Florida football game.
Georgia won that game, of course, because the Gators and their fans are mostly sissies.
The buses were stolen in October and the game was played Saturday.
The Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office was contacted Saturday by someone who said the buses could be found at the stadium.
The school system retrieved the buses Tuesday.
The article does not say if keys were found with the vans or if the vehicles were broken into, but this smells as fishy as a week old dead gator.
More stolen news:
Why do people climb Mt. Everest? “Because it is there,” to quote a fellow who died trying.
Why do people hunt Bigfoot? Because it’s not there but hunters like a challenge.
Unfortunately for one Oklahoma shooting victim, Bigfoot hunters tend to have itchy trigger fingers.
Rogers County Sheriff Scott Walton told a local news station how a recent manly expedition went awry.
Saturday night, a couple of big game hunters near Tulsa decided to make history by slaying the mythological beast. The two men got their guns and headed on over to 177th East Avenue and Tiger Switch Road, an area wedged between two golf courses and a nature preserve, which sounds just like the kinda place Bigfoot might like.
One of the men, Omar Pineda, 21, heard a “barking noise” and got jittery. His gun went off and he accidentally shot his friend.
The injured man and his former buddy were able to scamper on over to the QuikTrip to meet an ambulance.
When the men
Are you racist if you have a gun in your home?
According to a study by foreigners, yes.
Researchers in England and Australia randomly dialed phone numbers until they found white voters willing to take part in their study. Those who agreed to participate were paid $10 a month from January 2008 to September 2009 and provided Internet access if they didn’t have it.
Respondents were quizzed to gauge their level of racism.

You never know what you will learn when you visit the library. An assistant librarian in New Mexico claims she’s learned quite a bit.
In a lawsuit, Jamie Kurz alleges she was fired from her job in Estancia, N.M., after she told the mayor her boss was having sex in the library’s children’s section.
Kurz’s lawyer told KRQE reporters his client showed up early to work one Friday in August and saw two vehicles in the parking lot. One belonged to the head librarian and the other was a city maintenance truck.
Once inside, Kurz said she heard “unusual noises” and found her boss and a city maintenance worker having sex on the floor.
The maintenance man asked Kurz to not say anything because he and the head librarian are both married to people they do not have sex
Most Americans don’t need more reasons to hate a group that burns down churches, but here’s another one that may or may not be true.
Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, which recently was ousted from power by the Egyptian military, is accused of soaking puppies with gas, lighting them and throwing them at the army, according to reports on Breitbart.com and other websites.
According to animal rescuers in New Jersey, only three of 20 puppies used as firebombs were able to be rescued. Those animals can be seen at petfinder.com.
But is the story true?
A reporter from The Guardian says he finds the story difficult to believe.
“Gathering 20 puppies, transporting them to a protest, dousing them in petrol, and then throwing them at soldiers while being teargassed strikes me as not just impractical, but nigh-on impossible,” said Patrick Kingsley in a Huffington Post UK
Reading put the fun in fundamental, but failure to return library books can put people in jail.
A Texas man had the book thrown at him by Copperas Cove police recently after failing to return an overdue library book, reports Fox News.
Jory C. Enck checked out a GED study guide in 2010 and never returned it, police said. He was arrested for “overdue library materials” and released on a $200 bond.
A patron must have a book checked out for a minimum of 90 days and not respond to phone calls or emails from the library before the municipal court is notified, according to library policy.
A municipal judge said the city’s unusual ordinance has been met with “universal hatred.”
“No one wants to go to jail for a library book,” said Judge Bill Price.
A GED study guide like the one Enck checked out is back on the library shelf, reports kwtx.com.
Enck’s library card was found
Wouldn’t it be terrible if a swarm of zombies overran Congress and ate the brains of every politician elected by people who aren’t from around here?
If such a thing were to happen, who would we send part of our paycheck to every week and who would take care of us?
A zombie IT department would likely have a better chance of patching up HealthCare.gov.
Recently, a politician elected by people who are from around here made the claim that the “majority of voters actually prefer the blood-hungry creatures of The Walking Dead … to the current Congress.”
My colleagues at Politifact Georgia checked out the claim by state Rep. Ed Lindsey (R-Atlanta) and it turns out ole Ed ain’t lying about this one.
When 502 registered voters were asked “What do you have a higher opinion of: Congress or zombies?”, a frightening 43 percent said zombies. As Mitt Romney would say, it was a close race — 37 percent preferred the Walking Braindead that can’t pass a
A paltry 11 percent of U.S. drivers have had sex behind the wheel, according to a new online survey of potentially repressed humans.
As one might expect, more than three times as many men (17 percent) said they had sex while driving than women (5 percent) in the Harris Interactive survey of 1,800 drivers.
A quick survey of bleary office colleagues and my own brain resulted in various explanations of how this math might add up:
Good answers. I am going to choose “all of the above.”

Residents of Fargo, North Dakota, who are used to cruel winters more than cruel neighbors, aren’t that lucky.
A woman there tells a local radio station she plans to trick obese children by giving them warning letters instead of treats Thursday night.
There’s no word on whether she plans to give slim kids double candy.
The letter written by a woman identified only as Cheryl is making the rounds on social media. It features a smiling jack-o-lantern and a note to parents that says “you [sic] child is, in my opinion, moderately obese and should not be consuming sweets and treats to the extent of other children this Halloween season.”
This is one of the rare times I am hoping children can’t read.
Cheryl, in a radio interview, said, “I just want to send a message to the parents of kids that are really
