Broken News (On a Break) For Friday, June 27, 2014

Hi there! I’m Dave-El and this is I’m So Glad My Suffering Amuses You, the blog that says a woman is to blame but knows it's its own damn fault.
Today is Friday and that means we’re up for a new edition of….

"On a break"? 
OK, not so new then.
But as the summer sun beats to blister your brain down to the size of a raisin, let’s take a look back to the cooler time of the first two months of 2014 when the bitter cold of the polar vortex was freeze drying your brain down to the size of a raisin.
It just goes to show, hot or cold, there’s always something out there trying to shrivel our brains. Which explains SO much, doesn't it? 
Let’s do them bROkEN nEWs classic headlines...
