A reporter of interesting stories tells about a city council that had commissioned one of those new “artsy” sculptures. It was some twenty feet in size and was quite “modern” in appearance.
One day city workers, mistaking it for junk, bulldozed it over then smashed it into pieces and sent off for recycling.
The odd thing about it was that it took over a year for anybody to notice the thing was missing. City officials paid the artist another $25,000 to replace the item.
Kinds of Dresses
Have you ever hear of the “bow-wow” dress?
When a sister wears a low cut neckline and bends down, others say “wow” and have to turn away.
Then there’s the “wow-bow-wow” dress!
In this case it’s too tight and short and when first seen, others say “wow” and then “wow” again when she “bows”.
Finally there is the shrink wrap dress. Just as products in the produce case of your nearest supermarket shrink wrap certain items to show them off, such clothing is intended to “show off” and does not conform to Christian principles.
Teenager With Spiked Hair
A teen-aged boy with spiked hair, nose ring and baggy clothes was overheard telling a friend, “I don’t really like to dress like this, but it keeps my parents from dragging me everywhere with them.”
