Strange News of the Week

– From the yucky files! A Colorado family and an Arizona nonprofit are fighting in court over who gets the head of a woman who died this month, along with a $50,000 annuity she left behind.

– Police in Georgia say a 23-year-old man grabbed a baseball bat inside of a Walmart store on Wednesday and smashed 29 flat-screen televisions. I am guessing anger management courses will be part of his sentence.

– A strip club in Ohio has raised $1,000 for Haitian earthquake relief during what was billed as “Lap dances for Haiti.  Ummm, is that legal?

– Police say a man who stuffed 75 bottles of body lotion in his pants couldn’t slip away from authorities, hampered by slacks that were nearly bursting at the seams. Dry skin I guess?

All-in-all it seems like most people are quite creative but I should mention that I have seen dozens of crude sexual references too.

Google Earth Exposes Big Penis

It seems an English Lord was having a bit of fun on his roof top helipad.  He painted a huge pecker there to amuse his friends and family when he flew them to the countryside estate.  Now Google earth has made it public and the UK Government has threatened to sue him if it is not removed.

New way to dry a baby!

A Mesa dad turned on the family clothes dryer with his son still inside — and he did it on purpose, cops say.  The 1-year-old boy had been sitting inside the dryer with the door open, which the young family thought was “cute,” according to a Mesa police news release. When the boy’s mother left the laundry area to grab a camera, the boy’s father — 19-year-old Jose Rocha (pictured) — closed the dryer door and turned the appliance on, police say.

The kid began screaming and was soon rescued, suffering a few bumps and bruises. Family members were so outraged that they called the cops. Rocha was booked into jail on suspicion of child abuse.  Good job that his own family turned him in, no doubt the guy is a psycho!

Cops find cell phone in butt crack

In an incident that was quite strange and more than a little weird, a 14-year-old girl in Wisconsin was arrested for refusing to stop sending text messages during class, where she proceeded to hide the phone in her ASS CRACK. According to the Smoking Gun, the unnamed girl apparently ignored the teacher’s requests to stop using her Samsung phone, but she kept on SMSing as she pleased. When the school security officer was called in, the girl claimed she didn’t have a phone. The school finally called in the police, who searched the girl, and found the phone under her pants “in the buttocks area.” The police confiscated her phone and charged her with disorderly conduct. These are your tax dollars at work, Wisconsin.  Only in the USA.

Carter says “Puff” – Weird Pardons

This name may not be immediately familiar, but you’d probably recognize Yarrow’s voice if he sang “Puff, the Magic Dragon.” As one-third of the folk outfit Peter, Paul and Mary, Yarrow dominated the music and protest scenes of the 1960s.

Yarrow had legions of young fans, but unfortunately, some were a bit too young. In 1970 he was convicted of taking “improper liberties” with a 14-year-old fan, an error for which he spent three months in jail. On his last day in office, though, Jimmy Carter granted Yarrow a pardon.

Yarrow, for his part, admitted he made a huge mistake and later contritely said, “It was an era of real indiscretion and mistakes by categorically male performers. I was one of them. I got nailed. I was wrong. I’m sorry for it.” I would bet my pay cheque that it was not the first time Yarrow took liberties with a minor.

Four Year Old Shoots Babysitter

Only in the USA – police say a 4-year-old boy in southern Ohio shot his babysitter because the sitter accidentally stepped on his foot. Police said 18-year-old Nathan Beavers and several other teenagers were babysitting several young children in a mobile home in Jackson on Sunday when the shooting occurred.

Witnesses told police the 4-year-old retrieved the shotgun from a bedroom closet and shot Beavers. Police said the child was angry because Beavers accidentally stepped on his foot.

Beavers was hospitalized with minor pellet wounds to his arm and side.

Police say another teen was also injured with shotgun pellets.

Jackson County Sheriff John Shashteen said authorities are investigating the shooting. The child has not been charged.  I thought a four year olds shoulder would pop off if he discharged a shotgun.
