That’s not misspelled. It’s “sun.”
A Spanish woman who fancies herself clever has registered the sun as her property with a notary in Spain.
Excuse me while I go pack my bags for Spain. Had I know you could get away with things like this there, I’d have gone years ago. Does anyone know if someone owns “all the air” yet? Just wondering …
Apparently international law forbids nations from claiming ownership of planets or stars. I imagine that was done to keep those rotten commies from stealing the moon.
And yes, I was tempted to make a “Uranus” joke. But I’ve done a lot of growing up since the last time I did one of these (actually – because I’m a great father – I taught my kids the double-meaning and they haven’t shut up about it since, so it’s kind of worn thin).
So Angeles Duran says she’ll now tax people for its use, etc. To which I say: Can you turn that damn thing up in the morning? I can’t even leave the house until 8.
I suppose she hasn’t given much thought to the lawsuits about skin cancer, drought and maintenence (she’s really screwed when it goes supernova, isn’t she).
OK, so she only wants attention, and I’m making things worse, Really, making the world a better place is Bono’s job, not mine. I just like to freshen up everybody’s day by letting them know they’re people out there stupider than you.
