06:52 pm - Oh, right
Compare and contrast, chilluns, these news stories that broke on the same day in the same state:

EXHIBIT A

COEUR D'ALENE — The owners of a roller skating rink have fired an 18-year-old woman they called one of their "Top 10" employees because she moved in with her boyfriend, violating a company ethics policy that prohibits "live-in relationships of an intimate nature."

...

Skate Plaza's moral and ethics policy also bans such behaviors as "public displays of promiscuous activities, homosexuality, intoxication, use of profanity, lewd behavior, use of illegal drugs, child abuse, spouse abuse, unlawful relationships, cross-dressing, stalking and nudity."
EXHIBIT B
http://www.cnn.com/2006/US/06/16/severed.head.ap/index.html
BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- A man transporting his wife's severed head in a pickup truck collided with an oncoming car, killing a woman and her 4-year-old daughter, police said. The impact sent the head flying onto the road.

...

[The suspect] ... who was not injured, told officers he was involved in his wife's death, investigators said.
Gee, it's too bad for that spouse abuse clause, or that morally-correct legally-wedded-in-the-eyes-of-God gentleman could've had a job at Skate Plaza.

no offense meant to mr. jr, earl

Their ethics policy bans nudity? So how do their employees shower?

Oh, I think I know this one -- through a hole in a sheet?

There's a reason some people call them bathing suits.

My experience is that people in Boise think the people up in Coeur d'Alene are CRAZY.

That's ridiculous! It's the most laughable thing I've ever heard! There's a roller rink somewhere with more than ten employees?

Well, there's seven employees in person, but you gotta also account for the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (ranked #1, #2, and #3, respectively, in Skate Park's "Top Ten Employees List")
