It seems an English Lord was having a bit of fun on his roof top helipad.Â He painted a huge pecker there to amuse his friends and family when he flew them to the countryside estate.Â Now Google earth has made it public and the UK Government has threatened to sue him if it is not removed.
A Mesa dad turned on the family clothes dryer with his son still inside — and he did it on purpose, cops say.Â 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.Â Good job that his own family turned him in, no doubt the guy is a psycho!
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.Â Only in the USA.
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.
The Onion pulls another great story out of it’s creative hat.
George W. Bush, 43rd president of the United States of America, passed away painlessly in his sleep Monday night, White House sources confirmed. The 62-year-old Bush was reportedly discovered lying unresponsive in his bed by first lady Laura Bush, a gentle smile still on his lips. “It was as though he knew it was his time to go,” said longtime family physician Dr. Harold Ditmas, who pronounced the president dead of natural causes at 7:24 a.m. Plans for Bush’s funeral have been postponed indefinitely following an unexpected incident in which the president’s corpse was sucked through an Air Force One jet engine
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.Â I thought a fourÂ year olds shoulder would pop off if he discharged a shotgun.
