    LMAO, a prank...or they thought he was having a rough delivery.*thinking of that Austin Powers scene*

    November 6, 2005 -- In the "hell hath no fury" department, we have a Pennsylvania woman who did not win sympathy from a jury, which ordered her to pay $46,200 to her ex for Super Glue-ing his genitals to his abdomen. Gail O'Toole of Murrysville also glued Kenneth Slaby's buttocks together after he fell asleep and scrawled profanity across his back in nail polish. She invited him over after he broke up with the woman for whom he threw O'Toole overboard. "For all the pain and suffering I've been through, and the embarrassment, I don't think it's enough," Slaby complained.

    November 7, 2005 --The mayor of Las Vegas has proposed a radical way to deal with graffiti vandals — cut off their thumbs. If that's too much, he'll settle for whippings or canings. "[I] believe in a little bit of corporal punishment, going back to the days of yore, where examples have to be shown," Mayor Oscar Goodman said. State education official Howard Rosenberg slammed the suggestion, telling Goodman he should "use his head for something other than a hat rack."

    November 8, 2005 -- Mark Kassel, who headed the juvenile jail in Will County, Ill., must feel like a real heel this week. The 39-year-old corrections boss abruptly resigned after officials discovered he's involved with an Internet site for foot fetishists. The site, ohmyhose.com, features photos of scantily dressed women in seamed stockings, pantyhose and high-heeled shoes.

    November 9, 2005 -- A bandit out of Mexican folklore has become the patron saint to drug dealers in Bakersfield, Calif., with some building altars to worship him in their homes, police say. Jesus Malverde, who was hanged as a thief in the early 20th century before, legend says, he began appearing to people in peril to save them, "protects the drug dealer and brings good luck to the drug dealer," Detective Pete Cavazos said. "It might sound comical to others, but they take it very, very seriously."

    Talk about full frontal stupidity!

    November 12, 2005 -- A fire-eater set a stripper's breasts ablaze at a lap-dancing club in Augsburg, Germany, when he blew flames at her.
    "I shouted at him that he was getting too close, but he didn't stop," she said. "The oil and glitter that I rubbed on my body must have caught on fire." The stripper was treated at a local hospital; the fire-eater was given a suspended sentence for causing her grievous bodily harm.

    November 13, 2005 -- Manhattan real-estate prices have nothing on Owen County, Ind. — where county officials are trying to sell a one-square- inch parcel of land for $1,500. In the 1960s, locals had to own real estate to have access to a nearby lake. Officials think that's how the one-square-inch plot outside Bloomington ended up being deeded. After the bank foreclosed, the separate parcel went into a tax sale — where the minimum bid is $1,500. At that rate, an acre would run about $7 billion.

    November 14, 2005 -- Inmates at the Falkenburg Road Jail in Brandon, Fla., want to set your mouth on fire. They're marketing the first-ever hot pepper sauce made in prison. Jailhouse Fire consists of habañeros, Scotch bonnets and jalapeños grown on the premises and will sell in stores for $3.25 a bottle. As hot as it is, inmates make a hotter version for themselves. "It's a macho thing," said Allen Boatman, director of the prison's horticulture program.

    November 15, 2005 -- Now you can turn your iPod into an ooh-ooh-Pod.
    A new $40 sex toy called the iBuzz connects to the iPod and vibrates in time to the music. "The iPod is this era's must-have accessory, while a vibrator is a timeless addition to every girl's gadget drawer. Entwine the two and you've got the ultimate cheeky Christmas stocking filler," said Jessamy Hawley of British retailer Gadget Candy.

    November 16, 2005 -- Jesus saves — at the gas pumps. The New Life Christian Church in Auburn, Calif., is offering discounts of 50 cents a gallon to show that God is interested in everyday issues. But the Church of the Divide says it's a marketing gimmick that cheapens religion. Protesters carried signs reading, "Jesus cares more about your sin and burning in hell than gas prices." But New Life worshipper Karen Ivan shot back, "[We're ] doing something good and people are protesting it? Jesus said his true disciples would be persecuted."

    A Somali arrives in Minneapolis as a new immigrant to the United States.

    He stops the first person he sees walking down the street and says, "Thank you Mr. American for letting me in this country, and giving me housing, food stamps, free medical care and free education!" But the passer-by says "You are mistaken, I am Mexican".

    The man goes on and encounters another passer-by. "Thank you for having such a beautiful country here in America!" The person says "I no American, I Vietnamese."

    The new arrival walks further, and the next person he sees he stops, shakes his hand and says "Thank you for the wonderful America!" That person puts up his hand and says "I am from Middle East, I am not an American!"

    He finally sees a nice lady and asks suspiciously, "Are you an American?" She says, "No, I am from Russia!" So he is puzzled, and asks her, "Where are all the Americans?"

    The Russian lady looks at her watch, shrugs, and says... "Probably at work!"

    November 17, 2005 -- Here's some scary news for companies in Iowa — they can't deny unemployment benefits to workers who've been fired for seeing ghosts. Security guard Wade Gallegos got the ax when he said ghosts haunted the Des Moines neighborhood he patrolled, but his boss couldn't see them. The company then denied him unemployment on the grounds of misconduct. But Judge G. Ken Renegar ruled that, while Gallegos' spooky sightings rendered him "unfit to act as a security guard," seeing ghosts isn't the type of misconduct that can disqualify him from getting benefits.

    November 18, 2005 -- The mayor of Williamsport, Pa., has inspired one of the city's hottest T-shirts with a controversial quip that recent shootings there shouldn't make "good people" fear violence. "Don't Shoot! I'm one of the Good People of Williamsport," say the shirts, which are flying off shelves at $10 each. Last month, Mayor Mary Wolf said, "If you're a good person and you're not doing drugs, walk with confidence."

    November 19, 2005 -- A woman in Thibodaux, La., was enraged when she was served cold onion rings at a restaurant and the waiter wouldn't replace them. So she called 911. The cops responded — and arrested her.

    The charge: misuse of the 911 system. Good!!!

    An old, long since retired Captain told the story of a house fire he went to...

    A lady was brushing and flea spraying her cat in her living room, near the fireplace. A log popped and a flying brand shot out at the cat as it was being sprayed with the aerosol flea killer. You guessed it! FWOOF! Flash fire and a fully involved kitty haulin' *** around the house, trying to get away from the heat!

    It first ran under the couch, setting it on fire. Then to the drapes...No relief there either! Finally it ran into the bedroom and under the bed before all of its accelerant laden fur was consumed!

    When the first in engine arrived, the house was well involved and the lady was sitting in the yard holding her pink hairless cat in her arms!

    The Captain used to say it was the hottest ***** he'd ever seen!

    The cat survived the ordeal.

    November 21, 2005 -- Harry Carpenter is 83 and needs oxygen for a lung ailment, but that didn't stop him and Jackie, his wife of 57 years, from foiling a pair of knife-wielding intruders. When the thugs barged into their Savannah, Ga., home as the were having dinner, Jackie pretended to faint, allowing Harry to sneak into the laundry room and grab a rifle he uses to shoot squirrels. He marched back in like Rambo and aimed it at one of the crooks. Both burglars fled empty-handed.

    "Best Comeback Line Ever."

    Only in Alberta... This was in the Calgary Sun ... the title of the article was "Best Comeback Line Ever."

    In summary:

    The police arrested Ward Branham, a 22-year-old white male, resident of Lethbridge, Alberta, in a pumpkin patch at 11:38 p.m. on Friday.

    Ward will be charged with lewd and lascivious behaviour, public indecency, and public intoxication at the Calgary courthouse on Monday.

    The suspect explained that as he was passing a pumpkin patch he decided to stop. "You know, a pumpkin is soft and squishy inside, and there was no one around there for miles. At least I thought there wasn't," he stated in a phone interview.

    Ward went on to say that he pulled over to the side of the road, picked out a pumpkin that he felt was appropriate to his purposes, cut a hole in it, and proceeded to satisfy his alleged "need."

    "I guess I was just really into it, you know?" he commented with evident embarrassment.

    In the process, Ward apparently failed to notice a police car approaching and was unaware of his audience until officer Brin Taylor approached him.

    "It was an unusual situation, that's for sure," said officer Taylor. "I walked up to (Ward) and he's....just working away at this pumpkin." Taylor went on to describe what happened when SHE approached Ward. "I just went up and said, "Excuse me sir, but do you realize that you are screwing a pumpkin?"

    He froze and was clearly very surprised that I was there,and then looked me straight in the face and said...


    "A pumpkin? Damn...is it midnight already?"
    Only an Albertan would think of an answer like that.

    LMAO. That's great. I can't believe the officer would have actually laid charges after that

    November 22, 2005 -- A 60-year-old boozer drank too much, wet his bed, then set fire to his apartment while trying to dry out his mattress, cops say. "He was too drunk to go to the toilet," said a police spokesman in Muelheim, Germany. "The next morning, he put a hairdryer on the bed to dry it and left the apartment." When the old sot returned, his home was in flames.

    Naked Man Dies In Jump From Downtown Office

    By Petula Dvorak Washington Post Staff Writer Wednesday, November 23, 2005; Page B01

    A naked man darted from a sport-utility vehicle into a downtown Washington office building at lunchtime yesterday and then jumped to his death from the eighth floor, officials said.

    The man double-parked in the 1000 block of 15th Street NW about noon, bolted from his still-running gray Jeep Cherokee, dashed past a crowd on the street and ran into the lobby of an office building, witnesses said.

    Police were still trying to identify the man yesterday and to determine why he jumped. Witnesses also were trying to sort out what happened. The man had no apparent connection to the building, according to people who work there.

    "He didn't even have shoes on," said James Crouch, who was working as a temporary security guard at the building. Sitting behind the security desk, Crouch first saw the man from the waist up and thought "maybe he was a rather strange jogger. But then I stood up and saw the rest of him."

    The man told Crouch that he was "handicapped," asked him for 50 cents to make a phone call and then spoke incoherently, mumbling something about his father, Crouch said.

    Then the man ran to an elevator. Minutes later, he emerged from a stairwell on the eighth floor. The fire alarm had been set off, presumably by the man, and the office doors on that floor were open as people began to file out, witnesses said.

    The man pushed his way into one of the offices, where he said "excuse me" several times while charging toward a window, witnesses said. He smashed the glass and jumped through the window, falling onto a parapet between two buildings. Some downtown workers saw him fall.

    D.C. firefighters and emergency medical service personnel arrived at the scene, and police quickly cordoned off the block.

    Workers in the eighth-floor office said they had not seen the man before and did not believe that he had ties to the offices there. They didn't hear anything he said other than "excuse me," a witness said.

    Before it became apparent what was taking place, the city's parking enforcers reacted to the abandoned SUV, which had leather seats, Maryland plates and no sign of clothing inside. They slapped a ticket on the windshield.


    Go figure on the parking ticket eh?

    November 24, 2005 -- You booze, you lose. A night of drinking left a man so disoriented that he hopped into a police car thinking it was a taxi, cops in Santa Cruz, Calif., say. The 20-year-old drunk was taken to jail on suspicion of being under the influence of alcohol and cocaine.
