HOLABIRD ADVOCATE RECORDS 1700TH READER
Earlier this afternoon, the Holabird Advocate Circulation Department reported that they have reached their goal of 1700 readers. The figure is the same as the estimated population of Hyde County.
At first, it was hoped to reach that number by January 1, 2003, then by July 18. It appears that the celebrating can start anytime.
Holabird Advocate Publisher, Jerry Hinkle said in a statement this afternoon, "This is just the beginning. I suspect that eventually we will have 700,000 Readers, which is the approximate population of South Dakota. Of course, that won't be for some time. Until then we'll just do what we have been doing."
PETA PROTESTS THE RUNNING OF THE BULLS
by Jerry Hinkle, of the Holabird Advocate
The world famous "Running of the Bulls" in Pamplona, Spain has caused a great deal of pain to those brave, or some would say stupid, people who parcipate in the event. It also causes a lot of laughter to the spectators who watch the spectacle from the safety of there own TV set. Joining in on all the fun is PETA. Yes our lovable, but hopelessly insane, friends from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals seem to think that the bulls are getting mistreated. The people getting chased, they could care less about, but those poor defenseless bulls are gonna get hurt.
Of course, Being the courageous, dynamic publisher of this fine newsblog have figured out the best solution to this whole thing. I believe that PETA members should be among those being chased by the bulls. That way, they can make sure that no harm comes to the bulls from those nasty people. Perhaps they could even give the bulls a hug, to make them feel better.
By the way 3 people were killed at this years running. The number of bulls: 0.
