At a church in Spain there was a deteriorating fresco of Jesus (Christ... perhaps you've heard of him?).  It got to the point that everyone agreed that it needed a fresh coat of paint.  That costs money, of course, but one of the parishioners, a 91- year- old woman, offered to touch it up free of charge.  I believe the church provided the paint and she provided the work.  You can check out her handiwork on our Facebook page.  Anyway, I can't find the words to explain it, so I'll quote the BBC's observation:  "it looks like a crayon drawing of a very hairy monkey in an ill- fitting tunic."  That says it all.  Her heart was in the right place, but her talent wasn't.  Meanwhile, in Montana, police were attempting a particularly angry escaped cow.  A 52- year- old guy who'd been around livestock his entire life decided to help.  Instead, he had to be taken to the hospital after the cow charged him and made a mess of his day.  And in Los Angeles, 7 good Samaritans attempted to aid a man after he crashed his SUV into a fire hydrant and a utility pole.  Thing is, live wires from the utility pole introduced themselves to the pool of water that had formed from the busted hydrant and 5 of the wolud- be do- gooders were shocked... the other 2 were electrocuted and died.  In fact, the only person who was not the recipient of electricity was the guy in the SUV.  Sometimes, despite your pure intentions, you made something that was already bad, a little worse.  WHEN DID YOU UNINTENTIONALLY MAKE A SITUATION WORSE?
Made a joke about the name 'Roberta' at a family dinner with his new girlfriend... who's mother's name was, of course, Roberta
Set his house on fire with a "decorative" oil lamp... dumped water on it and spread the fire across the entire floor of the home.  Lost all of his stuff
Years ago, an ex girlfriend was in the hospital with a lung infection.  When she was finally released from the hospital, he bought her a bouquet of flowers... that she was allergic to.  She was back in the hospital for 2 weeks.
A friend of his at work was up for a promotion to a supervisor position.  He and the bosses were joking around one day and they mentioned that his friend was a 'good guy'.  Jokingly, he said, "yea, jail really mellowed him out."  They believed him and his friend had to sign a full- disclosure form for a background check.  Not sure if he got the promotion or not
Offered to help his "old lady" neighbor mow her lawn.  She was using an electric lawnmower, and when he started mowing, the extension cord got caught in the blades and everything went to hell.
Just earlier today, he accidentally erased all of the info on the computer of a property manager.  He's the IT guy
At a gathering of friends, one friend and a girlfriend started arguing and were on the verge of breaking up.  Not wanting to see this happen, he decided to lighten the mood by recalling a story of when they were all at a sex shop and his buddy slapped his girl with a green dildo and chased her around the shop.  Good times, funny times.  Problem is, he got the girlfriends confused.  That particular story involved a FORMER girlfriend... who happened to be at the root of the argument they were having.
OK bitches, I'm outta here.
Until tomorrow, pass it to the left and STAY BEAUTIFUL!"
