Gotta love Steve, always doing the wrong thing.
Salt Lake City, Utah – Bill and Joe Granhall were brothers born in Salt Lake City, UT in the late 20’s.Â Born exactly one year apart they never seemed to get along and personality-wise were also complete opposites.Â Bill was happy go lucky and a day dreamer while his brother Joe (the older brother) was always serious and studious.Â They became business partners in 1944, opening a printing company.Â The company was very successful and both men became millionaires many times over but they fought on a daily basis and hated each other.Â This is a bust that Bill Granhall had commissioned just days before his brothers death and it was put on display at the funeral home during his burial.
Bill delivered they eulogy and stated, “My brother Joe was a difficult person to get along with and I think it was because he was constipated his whole life”
Two trailer park residents in Dayton, Ohio are going to be battling this out in court over the next few months.
Tattoo artist, Ryan L. Fitzjerald was hit with a $100,000 lawsuit last week by his ex-girlfriend Rossie Brovent.Â She claims that her boyfriend was supposed to tattoo a scene from Narnia on her back but instead tattooed an image of a pile of excrement with flies buzzing around it.
Apparently Ryan found out that she had cheated with a long-time friend of his and this was his way of getting even.Â Originally Rossie tried to have Ryan charged with assault but it turns out this crafty tattoo artist got her to sign a consent form prior to the tattoo and it said that the design was ‘at the artists discretion’, she claims; “he tricked her by drinking a bottle of cheap wine with me and doing tequila shots before I signed it and got the tattoo”.Â “Actually I was passed out for most of the time, and woke up to this horrible image on my back.”
A German woman who got her breast implants with a loan from her then boyfriend now fears her assets could be re-possessed after she failed to fully reimburse him, the 20-year-old woman told Bild newspaper.
Her ex-boyfriend is demanding that she return the 4,379 euros ($5,865) he gave her to pay for her breast enlargement surgery in 2009 or he’ll call the police and get the repossessors involved, Bild reported on Wednesday.
“It’s true that Carsten signed a loan agreement shortly before the operation,” the woman named only as Anastasia is quoted saying. “The condition was that I wouldn’t have to pay him back if I stayed with him for a year.”
But the pair split shortly after she underwent the plastic surgery. The woman said she had transferred 3,000 euros into her ex-boyfriend’s account last week.Â I don’t blame the guy, he should at least get a partial refund.
– A Utah man is suing a group of would-be property owners for $38 quadrillion. Considering there is only about $24 trillion in circulation around the entire world at any given time, that could prove a difficult number to collect.Â What a waste of courts time, I hope they hit him with costs.
– In Barrie, ON a pizza pie with tomato sauce, oregano and cheese was on the menu at a spectacle which attracted a prize-winning eater – and eventual champ – from the United States, another from Mississauga and 10 others, including a local couple. In 12 minutes Kobayashi downed 10 pizzas sliced into 40 pieces.Â Ummm, I love pizza but that is gross!!
– A student from Brazil entered a Florida bar Tuesday morning, peed in two cups, then placed them on the bar, police say.Â OK, this one is even more gross, what a freak’in idiot!
It seems not, they have now moved on to burning cash….really! Sweden’s Feminist party roasted a pile of bank notes worth 100,000 Swedish crowns ($13,010) on Tuesday in a stunt designed to highlight wage disparities between men and women ahead of a national election.
Feminist party leader Gudrun Schyman pulled handfuls of cash from a plastic bag and threw them onto a smoking barbecue as a small crowd leaned in to take pictures. It took about 25 minutes to burn the bag’s contents.
“We are doing this for fair wages,” she told a crowd of some 75 people on the island of Gotland, off the southeast coast of Sweden, where political parties are gathered for a week of campaigning.
The stunt, using money donated by an advertising agency, was designed to illustrate how women in Sweden “lose” 100,000 crowns every minute because their wages are lower than men’s, she said.
“This is a lot of money for a lot of people and it is a lot of money for me but in a political campaign it is a drop in the ocean,” Schyman added.
Swedes go to the polls on September 19 and the feminist party — backed by celebrity supporters including Jane Fonda and ABBA’s Benny Andersson — hopes to win its first seat in parliament since it was founded in 2005.
Andersson donated 1 million crowns to the party last year to fund its campaign for election to the European parliament.
In Sweden’s national election in 2006, the feminist party won less than one percent of the vote. Parties need at least four percent to earn a seat in the national assembly. Catch the video at http://www.feministisktinitiativ.se/
