Broken News For Friday, May 30th, 2014















Hello, everyone! Welcome to I'm So Glad My Suffering Amuses You, the blog with a heart.

If you don't know just what bROkEN nEWs is, that's OK; I don't quite understand it myself. 

But whatever it is, it's time to get it started in here in 5...

Department of Punchline Explanations:
1970’s Division  

Donny and Marie Osmond were brother and sister Mormons who sang love songs to each other and it was not at all creepy. Anyway, they had their own TV show and the opening theme had Marie proclaiming to be a “little bit country” (maybe) and Donny declaring himself to be a “little bit rock ‘n’ roll” (uh…no).
