The Weirdest Headline I Have Ever Seen


Wife of freed Cuba agent pregnant, thanks to US

But no, the story is even weirder.

Officials have confirmed that a US senator helped a Cuban spy imprisoned in California to impregnate his wife

What? Why is a US Senator helping a Cuban spy with anything? And why is a US Senator helping anyone impregnate anyone? And how is a Us Senator. . . you know what, never mind. I'm pretty sure I don't want to know.

The highly improbable arrangements allowed for Adriana Perez Hernandez to be artificially inseminated months before husband Gerardo Hernandez returned to Cuba to a hero's welcome last Wednesday.
The parents-to-be owe much of their good fortune to Senator Patrick Leahy, who has made several trips to the communist-ruled island over the years.

Apparently, at least one trip with a vial of Cuban spy baby-making stuff! 

Hernandez was arrested in the United States in 1998 and convicted in 2001 on charges of espionage and conspiracy to murder. He and five other Cubans were sentenced to two life sentences plus 15 years.

But hey, that's no reason a United States Senator shouldn't be jerking you off into a test tube so you can reproduce!

This deserves the "WTF Award" for 2014!

The best thing to do to remain relatively sane in the US these days is not listen to or read about or watch the "news."

This sounds vaguely like a sub-plot in Jitterbug Perfume. Wasn't Huxley Anne conceived when her convict father had a sperm infused dinner roll smuggled out of prison and into his wife?

I've never actually read that one. To the library!!!

Now there's a thought, does Robbins' work hold up or is it the literary equivalent of bell bottoms? Let me know.

I just read "Skinny Legs and All" recently, it held up well in my opinion.
