Attack of the Killer Cherry Tomato

You don't usually consider those little cherry tomatoes assault weapons, but Linda F. of Okalahoma City discovered that one in her salad was loaded. And it went off at a bad time. Linda met her boss one day for lunch ask for a raise. She opted for a salad at the Italian deli because the other dishes seemed too messy to her. But she had forgotten about the pesky little tomato. When she stuck her fork in it, the pulp squirted across the table and nailed her boss in the eyeglasses. No word on whether she got the raise.

Everything Wasn't Coming Up Roses

Anna P. of Bend, Oregon, regrets not packing an alarm clock for one particular vacation. She and her husband decided to take the kids in a motor home to see the Rose Parade in Pasadena, Calif. They drove all day and secured a prime spot the night before the event, right on the parade route. The family was so exhausted from the drive that they drew the blinds and slept like logs. Not even the procession of floats, marching bands and cheering crowds could interrupt their slumber. They woke up just in time to see the last float past by.
