The agency that handles the marketing for St.Pete/Clearwater came up with an amazing April Fool’s campaign. “Visit St.Pete/Clearwater” made an announcement that said, “Officials have confirmed the sighting of a rare marine mammal off the coast of St.Pete/Clearwater last week. The creature was a combination of dolphin/manatee and named a “manaphin”. Scientists thought the creature was long extinct.” Tourism officials said they received calls from across the country and news agencies from coast-to-coast and even “The Daily Telegraph” from London believed the hoax. All to promote the area and its fantastic beaches!
Wait till you read this … a Berlin, German cemetery has a 4,300-square-foot area reserved for lesbians. The Lutheran Georgen Parochial Cemetery was established in 1814 and has an area that can fit up to 80 grave sites set aside for lesbians only. Usah Zachau is a spokeswoman for the Safia Association (a national group made up of elderly lesbians). She said the group secured the area in exchange for cleaning up and landscaping the cemetery for the past 30 years. So now we have to separate people when they die? I wonder if the cemetery has an area for blacks, or Italians or gays? I’m sorry but think this is fucked up! Aren’t we all supposed tom be equal in the eyes of God? Why separate grave site areas?
Harry Richard Black died yesterday at the age of 90. That name means nothing to 99.9% of people but we all know his creation. Mr. Black invented the “Mr. Clean” character for Procter & Gamble. The company chose the muscular, bald man in the white t-shirt to represent its cleaning solution back in 1958 and he has become a national icon. Mr. Black was also a longtime college professor.
I thought he was dead! You never know what’s up in today’s crazy world and here’s proof! A new Michael Jackson album will be released on May 13 by Epic records.

It was made possible by CEO and executive producer LA Ried who found the old tracks and brought them into the studio and finished them with the help of Timbaland, Rodney Jenkins, Stargate and Jerome “Jroc” Harmon.
