Unlike Santa Claus, They Made a List Without Checking It Twice

I know that bulk-mailed items can sometimes really miss their targeted demographic, but these two are crazy:
  • An 87-year-old Dallas grandmother received a recruiting notice from the Army. (She's of course too old to enlist, but if she did, the phrase "your grandmother wears Army boots" wouldn't always be an insult anymore.)

  • On the opposite end of the spectrum, a two-year-old girl in Massachusetts received a summons to jury duty. Upon finding out, the county gracefully decided to give her a "16-year deferral."
Our tax dollars at work...

She'll face the wrath of many for this: Remember that woman in France who had a face transplant a few months ago? Well, now she's used her new lips to take up smoking again, much to the chagrin of her doctors.
