Fun with words

I just ran across a CNN article that included something I found sort of humorous. It's always interesting the fun you can have with phrasing.

The exact cause of death couldn't be determined but there was no sign of "surgical or anesthetic misadventure" in the death of Donda West, Kanye West's mother, a coroner's report said Thursday.

I like that. 'Misadventure'. It makes it sound like operation took place took place while backpacking through the rain forest or that it was some sort of spelunking expedition. Well, while I was rooting around in her, I accidently snipped off the green wobbly bit through unforseen misadventure. Of course, I'm sure that the coroner's report won't put the brakes on the eventual lawsuit. The trial lawyers are circling and have to be fed.

Oh, and I just ran across a truly incomprehensible statement from my stupid quote of the day desk calender. Does anyone understand WTH this guy was trying to say?

He had to cut the wind with his balls, which is something we had to see
