    January 31, 2005 -- So far, nobody's gotten Randy Cox's goat, but Cox wishes they would. The Veneta, Ore., man says a friendly, brown and white male goat broke into his house, made friends with his dog, Dandy, and shows no signs of wanting to leave. Cox says the goat is personable as long as you don't turn your back on him, "but he did butt my truck."

    Anybody care for a flounder spritzer?

    February 1, 2005 -- A Chinese distillery has created the world's first wine made out of fish. And while it may sound gross, the Dalian Fisherman's Song Maritime Biological Brewery says its new concoction is not only nutritious, but low in alcohol content. The brewery adds that the fish is cleaned, pulverized and fermented.

    Oh, that's OK then.

    February 2, 2005 -- Just how fanatical is ardent Philadelphia Eagles fan Kevin O'Donoghue about his Super Bowl-bound pigskin heroes?
    So fanatical that he's mortgaged his house to buy a $4,000 hotel-and-tickets package to see them play the New England Patriots in Jacksonville, Fla., Sunday. "Sometimes the [credit] cards are maxed out and you gotta do what you gotta do," explained O'Donoghue, 36, an account executive who resides in Glen Mills, Pa.

    Whats going on DOWN UNDER???

    February 3, 2005 -- You've heard of road rage. In Australia, it's 'roo rage. Researchers Down Under say attacks by kangaroos have more than tripled in some areas. And dogs are particularly vulnerable, says one expert, Guy Ballard. "There have been cases when the 'roo deliberately leads the dog to water . . . It then holds the dog underwater and drowns it," he said.

    February 4, 2005 -- MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. - A woman selling advertising on her pregnant belly will receive $4,050 from the highest eBay auction bidder, Golden Palace Casino. Amber Rainey will have the online casino's Web site temporarily tattooed to her stomach Thursday. It will remain until she delivers her first child, due on March 21. Rainey didn't think her belly would fetch much as advertising space, but the casino has a record of unusual buys in online auctions, including paying $28,000 for a grilled cheese sandwich that bears the image of the Virgin Mary. Rainey has received national attention as her eBay auction page received more than 50,000 hits. Still, she said she was surprised by the final bid price and other possible perks. Rainey said Golden Palace officials would like her to expose her belly at concerts and the Super Bowl, though no final decisions have been made. She hasn't decided whether she would auction another body part or stomach again.
    "Maybe once is enough," she said.

    Red face Bad dates

    We have all had bad dates, but this takes the cake. This just tells you how tough it is to be single nowadays.
    This was on the "tonight Show" with Jay Leno. Jay went into the audience to find the most embarrassing first date that a woman ever had. The winner described her worst first date experience and there is absolutely no question as to why her tale took the prize!



    Patricia said it was midwinter, snowing, quite cold, and the guy had taken her skiing to lake Arrowhead. It was a day trip (no overnight). They were strangers, after all, and truly had never met before.

    The outing was fun but relatively uneventful until they were headed home late that afternoon. They were driving back down the mountain, when she gradually began to realize that she should not have had that extra latte.

    They were in the middle of nowhere, and about an hour away from anywhere with a restroom. Her companion suggested she try to hold it, which she did for awhile.

    Unfortunately, because of the heavy snow and slow going, there came a point where she told him that he had better stop and let her pee beside the road, or it would be in the front seat of his car. They stopped and she quickly crawled out beside the car, yanked her pants down and started.

    Unfortunately, she didn't have good footing in the deep snow, so she let her butt rest against the rear fender to steady herself.

    Her companion stood on the other side of the car watching for traffic and indeed was a real gentleman and refrained from peeking. All she could think about was the relief she felt despite the rather embarrassing nature of the situation.

    Upon finishing, however, she soon became aware of another sensation. As she bent to pull up her pants, the young lady discovered her buttock were firmly glued against the car's fender. Thoughts of tongues frozen to pump handles immediately came to mind as she attempted to disengage her flesh from the icy metal. It was quickly apparent that she had a brand new problem due to the extreme cold.

    Horrified by her plight and yet aware of the humor, she answered her date's concerns about "what was taking so long" with a reply that indeed, she was "freezing her butt off and needed some assistance."

    He came around the car as she tried to cover herself with her sweater and then, as she looked imploringly into his eyes, he burst out laughing.

    She too, got the giggles and when they finally managed to compose themselves, they assessed her dilemma. Obviously, as hysterical as the situation was they also were faced with a real problem.

    Both agreed it would take something hot to free her chilly cheeks from the grip of the icy metal! Thinking about what had gotten her into the predicament in the first place, both quickly realized that there was only one way to get her free.

    So, as she looked the other way, her first time date proceeded to unzip his pants and pee her butt off the fender.

    As for the Tonight Show, she took the prize hands down...or perhaps that should be "pants down." And you thought your first day was embarrassing! Jay Leno's comment.....This gives a whole new meaning of being "****ed off."

    ^ Now thats funny...


    February 5, 2005 -- A baby sitter in St. Petersburg, Fla., told jurors she complied when a demanding 4-year-old boy in her care ordered her to strip while they were watching a James Bond flick.
    "Everything was a struggle with him," Sarah Slicker, 23, told jurors. "I didn't say anything. I just did it." Slicker was found guilty of lewd and lascivious exhibition in front of a child.

    February 6, 2005 -- One Pittsburgh man says the ticket a state trooper wrote him violates his First Amendment right to use sign language — namely, flipping the bird. Stephen Corey, 42, has just filed a federal lawsuit. Corey was ticketed for following another vehicle too closely and for giving "an improper hand signal while passing my patrol car, namely, middle finger up," the trooper wrote.
    "It's lawful under the Constitution . . . You can't give a ticket for doing that," said Corey's lawyer.

    February 7, 2005 -- A famous Chicago restaurant renowned for ribs and chicken has been closed down for some things that are definitely not on the menu: a dead rat in the deep fryer and live roaches in the barbecue pit. Still, the owner of Fitzee's Serious Ribs and Chicken insists that despite the findings of health inspectors: "We keep a clean place. The place is beautiful."

    February 8, 2005 -- Wanna stay trim? Forget the diet books and gym membership — you may be better off just brushing your teeth more often, a Japanese study says. In a survey of 14,000 people, researchers at the University of Tokyo found those who managed to stay slim tended to brush after every meal, while overweight men sometimes went more than a day without brushing. They say the brushing itself isn't a fat-burning exercise, but rather a sign that a person is more careful about his health.

    This story's snow joke.

    February 8, 2005 -- Romanian firefighters put out a blaze in an apartment — by throwing snowballs through the window. When crews in Sibiu couldn't get close to the blaze because it was so intense, Fire Chief Florian Chioar ordered everybody to pack snowballs and keep throwing them until he told them to stop. It worked. "We put out the fire in about 30 minutes," he said.

    February 8, 2005 -- COLUMBIA, S.C. - Dozens of birds, drunk from eating holly berries, crashed into the glass of an office building and died earlier this week. "It was like an Alfred Hitchcock movie," worker Denise Wilkinson said. "It was spooky. You could hear them where they flew into the glass." Warm weather and an ample supply of berries attracted hundreds of cedar waxwings into the enclosed courtyard of the three-story building Tuesday, The birds began getting drunk on the berries. They got so loopy that some were falling off branches and others were slamming into the glass walls that enclose the courtyard, said Burgess Mills, the building's owner. About half of the 100 birds that slammed into the building died, workers said. Groundskeepers have tried to help the birds by putting tape on windows or nets over the holly trees to keep them from eating the berries, Mills said.

    Others chuckle at boys' 6-foot-tall work in New York state
    Feb. 11, 2005
    GLEN AUBREY, N.Y. - An explicit snow sculpture along a rural road near Binghamton had some drivers doing a double-take this week.
    The much-larger-than-life depiction of male genitals was on display for several days in a front yard in Glen Aubrey.
    One neighbor, Bob Hodges, told radio station WNBF that “it was the talk of the town for awhile.”
    Hodges said many people who saw the 6-foot-tall display just chuckled. But the artwork provoked a frosty reaction from one woman, who called the Broome County Sheriff’s Department to complain.
    A deputy who went to the home was told by a woman that the unconventional display was the work of her sons. She promised she’d have her sons take care of it.
    The sculpture was gone the next day.

    Thumbs up

    February 14, 2005 -- There's not much of a social life in the Nebraska town of Monowi — it's got a population of 1.
    Over the years, residents have either died or moved from the desolate community, which is about three hours from Omaha, and the only person left is 71-year-old Elsie Eiler, who lives in a trailer.

    She grants herself her own liquor license, collects taxes from herself — "it's a matter of cents, really" — and runs the town library, which folks from neighboring areas occasionally visit.
