The case of the purloined papers

When we were youngsters, our mother told us the importance of always wearing clean underwear. As good old mom would say, you never know when you might get into an accident.

Thinking back on those words years later, we wonder what exactly she meant.

Did she mean that we might end up in an ambulance, where the paramedics, who should be feverishly trying to save our lives, will be too busy laughing at our beat-up knickers to perform CPR?

The point is, don't leave the house in anything that you might be embarrassed to be seen in.

So, if you're going to head to a sporting event, put letters on your belly and, basically, draw attention to yourself, don't be too surprised if you end up on the front page of a newspaper.

Apparently, a couple coeds at Farmington State College in Massachusetts, had some remorse after seeing their photo in the school paper. Their solution was to steal as many of the newspapers as they could.

Really, there's nothing wrong with any of the girls in this photo. But two of them, you'll have to guess which two because school officials aren't saying, have admitted to the theft, saying they thought the picture made them look "fat."

School officials are making them pay for the cost of the missing papers. Their real punishment? Having the picture they wanted no one to see, posted all over the Internet.
