    Okay, Okay. doubtfulnews.com has joined my list of sites I am not allowed to view/read/surf with liquids in-hand or nearby. My lovely wife is from the Philippines. She is approximately 4′ 10″ tall. A fair number of her close friends are in the same height range. I have occasionally referred to my wife and her friends as a group of Oompa Loompas. In truth, when we are at a gathering of my wife’s Philippines friends/family l find myself humming, “oompa, loompa, dip-a-dee-doo, I’ve got another riddle for you…” I view your site story headlines and summaries almost daily. Today, I paid your site the highest compliment I can bestow on a web site. I spewed coffee onto the keyboard and screen when I saw the story link for the oompa loompa attack on a grocery store shopper! I thank you so very much for making my day more tolerable with a good laugh and a cleaning of my computer desk and equipment! Oh, and no, I have not shown the story to my wife. I am not so brave as to make any obvious connections to her whereabouts on the day in question.
    Thank you
