@dao- uh it was scissors! Might help to read the article instead of posting random thoughts like all the Republicans that spout off on here.

Tards, let me guess Obama made her do it.

AAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHA! Illusions, you labeling me as a follower of either tongue in cheek "party" is absolutely the most hilarious thing I've come across this week.

A self proclaimed party follower like yourself offering commentary on the social pitfalls of "random thoughts" is truly a magnificent work in irony.

Hey, maybe we should ban scissors as well then... right?.. since most scissors are essentially just two thick bladed knives riveted together... right?

Ohhhh those evil and dangerous inanimate objects, always out to get us!

Eleanor and Teddy Roosevelt were only distantly related. The above two, being first cousins are more close to being brothers and sisters.

Call of Booty, Modern Warfare. It's not running with scissors that's dangerous, it's what you do with them when you get where you're going. Sounds like she either wanted him to be less circumspect... or more circumcised. There's still a quarter bottle of Everclear in play here, which is the only surprising fact.
