- Three tourists go to a hotel and want a room.
- The man behind the desk tells them it’ll cost $25.
- There’s quickly an issue, as $25 can’t be split evenly between the three tourists.
- The tourists, not wanting to cause a problem, decide to pay $30 for the room instead.
- Each of the them plunks down $10 and they head off to their room.
- Later that afternoon, the General Manager of the hotel, while reviewing recent check-ins, realizes the tourists had been over-charged $5.
- The general manager gives the Bell Hop $5 and orders him to take the money to the tourists.
- When arriving at the room, not knowing how to split $5 between three people, the Bell Hop put $2 in his pocket and refunded each tourist $1.
- Therefore, upon receiving a refund of $1 each, the three tourists paid a total of $27 for the room, the Bell Hop kept $2 for himself, which brings the cash total to $29.

A girl horse won the Preakness. While that’s a touching story, it’s going to further empower those pesky women’s rights groups. Now it’s only a matter of time before chicks are in the NFL.
Michael Phelps actually lost a race this past weekend, which further proves that pot should not be legalized, unless we want the country’s productivity to plummet.
If you’re looking for more proof that EVERYONE is on Twitter, look no further than these two stories. Even senior citizens are dropping mad verbs on the social networking site, as the world’s oldest Tweeter has been identified. Her name is Ivy Bean and she’s 104. She Tweets about “Deal or No Deal,” her friend Mabel, and sleeping. God bless Ivy Bean. And then there’s this pet cat, named Sockington, who is far more popular than you or I will ever be. Sockington has 500,000 followers on Twitter.
Nearly 9 million people crossed a very creepy moral boundary and watched the Farrah Fawcett documentary on Saturday night. Our prayers go out to Farrah and her family and friends, and we hope those who watched the show won’t suffer too much bad karma.
The season finale of Numb3rs had 9.6 million viewers. Do the math: our country is headed for big goddamned trouble if 10 million people think bank robberies, murder, and terrorism can be solved by algorithms and algebra.
Last Friday marked the 69th anniversary of Nylon Stocking Day and the mainstream media missed it. No surprise, they were focused on things like Miss California and some wars going on in Iraq and Afghanistan, or something like that.
Stormy Daniels, a porn star, may run for a Louisiana Senate seat. Hey, the American dream in action. And say what you will, but do you think she could screw up the Senate any more than it is already? “Vote Stormy.”
Here’s more evidence that suggests humans should have to pass a test and gain a license before they’re allowed to procreate: a British man was busted for hiring a hooker to take his 14-year-old son’s virginity.
It’s over, there’s a website for everything now. Proving this is the YouStrip website, which includes some very not safe for work nudity from amateur strippers from around the globe. It’s basically YouTube for strippers. One of these days, I’m afraid these videos are going to come back to haunt these non-thinking girls.
And finally, if you think you’ve got skills, think again. After watching this amazing video of this girl beat-boxing, it’s pretty clear that most of us have no real talent, especially compared to her.
May 16, 2009 — Santa Monica, CA. Thanks to the creation of the new Barguments iPhone app, the most important questions facing the world can now be answered. But some think this new iPhone app may create more conflict and possibly more wars, as the questions are sure to spark fierce debate.
The reporters here at Thank God For the Internet got a sneak-peek into some of the 150+ controversial questions in the app. A few…
- Is 40 too old for Facebook?
- Could you cut Superman with a lightsaber?
- Who wins a fight between Larry King and Bob Barker?
News of Barguments being in the iTunes store is spreading fast, and leaders from around the globe have been quick to comment on this buzzworthy app. “People are tired of arguing over politics, it’s unproductive and passé at this point,” said a UN spokesman. “We should be focused on debating the more important issues, like whether or not muscular women look sexy, which Spears sister is the better mother, or who would win a barroom brawl between a baseball team and a basketball team?”
Not surprisingly, Democrats and Republicans are lining up along party lines. But while most officials are looking towards the positive benefits of healthy debate, law enforcement officials are prepared for tension. “We believe these types of debates, while certainly contentious, should heal society’s wounds,” said police chief McAdams. “But you never know what can happen. We’ve seen violence erupt over these types of disagreements before. When people start debating who would get the headlining slot if the Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin played a concert together, tempers can really flare. Our men and women in blue will be ready to prevent bloodshed.”

The reporters at Thank God For the Internet will continue following this story and provide updates when news breaks. And by the way, Bob Barker could take Larry King in a fight. And while it pains us to say this, the Rolling Stones would probably headline over Led Zeppelin, though that’s not our choice.
