    Talking Come they told him....ba ra pa pa RUM..!

    Florida women disarm intruder with ham sandwich and rum
    TAMPA, Florida (AP) - Confronted with an armed intruder in their
    home, two women plied him with a ham sandwich and rum until he
    became groggy and passed out.
    Police arrived and arrested Alfred Joseph Sweet, 52, to end the
    five-hour episode.
    Cathy Ord, 60, and Rose Bucher, 63, said they tried to befriend
    the man after he burst through their kitchen window with a
    sawed-off shotgun Tuesday night.
    They made him a sandwich, gave him a bottle of rum and suggested
    he shower and shave so he could "sort of be disguised in his
    getaway," Ord said.
    "We just treated him with kindness," Bucher said.
    She said she had offered Sweet cash and the keys to her
    Cadillac, but he just sat with them, holding his gun. The intruder
    never said what he wanted, the women said.

    October 31, 2003 --And speaking of dogs' sex woes, a toy pooch with which Elvis Presley simulated sex during a 1957 Las Vegas show has been sold to a fan for $4,700. Rebecca Hooper, of Cheshire, England, says her new souvenir became famous when RCA Records presented it to the King as a gift and he pretended to make love to it. Fans were so whipped up by the sight, they refused to leave after the show ended, prompting concert bosses to announce for the very first time, "Elvis has left the building."

    Post Creativity

    TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Immigrant smugglers trying to fool law
    enforcement officials have painted vehicles to look like a Federal
    Express van and even U.S. Border Patrol vehicles.
    This week, they tried again - using one painted to look like a
    Phoenix TV news truck.
    Agents tipped to a home in Naco believed to be harboring illegal
    immigrants watched as 10 people climbed into a Ford Explorer and a
    Isuzu pickup truck.
    The sides and front of the Explorer were painted with a large
    "12" and other station insignia on the sides, including the
    phrase "12 Stands for Local News."
    "On the back side, there was a black door; it looks really good
    from the rest of the sides," Border Patrol spokesman Andy Adame
    said.
    Bert Sass, a producer at the station, KPNX-TV in Phoenix, said
    he was unaware of any vehicle having been reported stolen from the
    station. A call to the station's news director was not immediately
    returned.
    Agents on Tuesday found five undocumented immigrants in each
    vehicle and charged each driver with felony alien smuggling, Adame
    said.

    November 1, 2003 -- You'll have to shed more than your inhibitions to take part in karaoke at the Berlin Station Cafť in Berlin, Conn. Owner Marty St. Pierre, as a joke, began advertising "Naked Karaoke" about a month ago, and now has a sign-up sheet listing eager vocalist-exhibitionists. But the town has warned St. Pierre he faces a fine and arrest if he goes ahead. He said he plans to sue, so stay tuned.

    November 2, 2003 -- They might hate French diplomacy, but Americans apparently won't let political protest or ideology get in the way of imbibing the better wines the continent has to offer. Despite organized threats to boycott French products when Paris opposed the U.S.-led war in Iraq, Americans overtook Germans as the biggest spenders on France's Bordeaux wines in the 2002-03 sales year.
    ...my question is why???

    November 3, 2003 -- A female columnist at the Northwestern University school paper in Illinois has sparked a fury by claiming she's the only girl on campus who doesn't own a vibrator. Rachel Bertsche wrote, "Women are so proud to display their vibrator of choice. Every girl I talked to was excited to tell me all about her vibrator and why it was the best one out there. Be it the Rabbit, the Silver Bullet, the Pocket Rocket."Bertsche insists a battery-operated device "just doesn't cut it."

    Zoo visitor swatted while feeding a bear
    Monday, November 03, 2003

    A woman trying to feed an apple to a caged Alaskan Kodiak bear named Buddy at Space Farms Zoo and Museum in Wantage sustained hand injuries when she reached into the animal's cage yesterday, zoo officials and police said.

    Gail Stern, 54, of Hopatcong had been throwing apples to Buddy and another 1,300-pound Alaskan Kodiak bear named Matilda about 2 p.m. when one of the apples hit the bars on the cage and bounced back, police said.

    Stern scaled a 4-foot chain- link fence designed to keep visitors away from the bear cage, retrieved the wayward apple and attempted to place it in Buddy's cage, according to the State Police and zoo co- owner Parker Space.

    Buddy swiped at the apple and caused severe cuts to Stern's right hand, police said. She was taken to Morristown Memorial Hospital for treatment, police said.

    Stern told State Trooper F. Nobile that she fed the bears apples "because she thought they were vegetarians and didn't like meat," according to a police report. No charges have been filed, police said.

    Post Sing along........

    MONTREAL (Reuters) - The lawyer for a man convicted
    of shooting and killing a policeman apologized Monday for
    singing the Bob Marley hit "I Shot The Sheriff" as he was
    leaving the courtroom.
    Despite the apology, the Quebec Law Society has opened an
    disciplinary investigation against defense lawyer Christian
    Gauthier, while the Montreal police union is planning to make a
    formal complaint.
    "I'm sincerely sorry to know today that family members (of
    the victim) and policemen heard me," Gauthier told Radio-Canada
    television.
    "If I hurt them, if I added to their plight, I'm sincerely
    sorry. I didn't think about it, and if I had, I wouldn't have
    sang," he said.
    Gauthier was leaving the courthouse during a break in the
    murder trial of his client, Stephane Boucher, last week when
    his rendition of "I Shot The Sheriff", a cut on Marley's 1973
    album "Burnin"', was heard by reporters and police.
    "I shot the sheriff, but I swear it was in self-defense,"
    the lawyer sang while pacing a corridor.
    "It's the story of my client," he replied when a journalist
    warned him that his performance had been caught on tape.
    His client was later sentenced to 25 years in jail for
    shooting and killing policeman Benoit L'Ecuyer on a busy
    Montreal highway in February last year. Boucher said he killed
    the officer in defense after being shot at while trying to
    escape.
    Disciplinary action against the lawyer could range from a
    fine to disbarment.

    November 4, 2003 -- Score one for free speech. A court in Montana has ruled that kids have the right to ride their school bus and shout "Penis!" over and over again. Bus driver James Campbell, 62,had been charged with assault for hitting a 12-year-old boy who refused to stop saying the word, because it was a "scientific" term, not a derogatory one. The court agreed to drop the charge if Campbell stays out of trouble for a year, but added that he had no right to quash the student's behavior.

    Post Staying with the theme

    PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (AP) - A popular karaoke performer was
    hospitalized after his jealous wife tried - but failed - to cut off
    his penis while he slept Wednesday, Phnom Penh police said.
    Kan Bun Hou, 26, was asleep when his wife, Ma Len, attacked him
    with a razor blade, said Touch Sarin, a Phnom Penh police chief.
    Police were looking for the woman, who fled after the attack.
    "The injury is not severe. It could have been worse if she had
    used scissors," he said. "His wound is treatable."
    The attack apparently stemmed from Kan Bun Hou's popularity as a
    karaoke performer. The couple had fought the day before.
    "He's a handsome man and used to party a lot at night," Touch
    Sarin said.
    In August, a man was allegedly killed by his wife after she
    squeezed his testicles until he fainted and then tied his neck to a
    bed with a scarf. The woman, who said her husband used to beat her,
    turned herself in to the police.

    AMSTERDAM, Netherlands - A five-year-old Dutch girl handed
    out "sweets" to classmates that turned out to be ecstasy,
    cocaine and heroin pills, police said.
    The drugs were confiscated by a suspicious teacher before
    any were consumed at the primary school in Hilversum, southeast
    of Amsterdam. Police arrested the girl's older brothers aged
    21, 19 and 16 and her 43-year-old mother.
    Large quantities of soft drugs and hard drugs were found in
    the car of the eldest brother. The brothers were in custody,
    but their mother was set free after questioning.

    Belgian man saves fish with kiss of life
    BRUSSELS, Belgium - A former Belgian ambulance driver put
    his first aid skills to good use by reviving one of his pond
    fish with mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
    Leo Van Aert, 57, was hosting a party at his home near the
    Belgian port of Antwerp when his wife noticed the koi -- a
    spotted Japanese carp -- floating on the surface of the garden
    pond, the Gazet Van Antwerpen said.
    Van Aert said the 24-inch long fish was "acting funny",
    swimming and jumping frantically before stopping dead in the
    water.
    He figured the koi had had a heart attack and took it out
    of the water to try to resuscitate it, giving it heart massages
    before joining lips with the fish.
    "After 15 minutes, the fish started to move again so I put
    him in the pond ... but when he fell over again I again applied
    mouth-to-mouth and heart massages," he said. "That's when the
    fish recovered".

    November 5, 2003 -- David Alan Waters is a blooming idiot - all he had to do to stay a free man was plant 10 chrysanthemums in the yard of Minnie Becton, the 99-year-old woman whose home he had vandalized. But he didn't, and now the Memphis, Tenn., man has to serve seven months of what had been a two-year suspended sentence. While Waters insists he did play gardener, Criminal Court Judge Carolyn Wade Blackett scolded: "There is no reason for a 99-year-old woman in a wheelchair to lie about who she saw on her property."

    WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) - How much would you pay for a beer
    in Hong Kong? A New Zealand traveler paid 20,000 Hong Kong dollars
    (US$2,595) for his.
    The man later told his bank he thought he was paying only about
    HK$19 (US$2.45) for the single beer, and that he believes bar
    employees duped him by adding additional zeros to his tab and then
    pocketing a big tip.
    The case surfaced Wednesday in the annual report to Parliament
    by Liz Brown, New Zealand's banking ombudsman.
    The man, identified in the report only as Mr. B, asked his bank
    to stop payment after he returned to New Zealand weeks later. But
    the bank said "it could not intervene" because Mr. B had signed
    the credit card receipt and told him his dispute was with the bar,
    Brown said in her report.
    Mr. B could offer no evidence that the sales voucher had been
    forged, and it had not "obviously been altered," Brown noted.
    Brown, who mediates complaints between customers and banks, told
    the man to withdraw his complaint.

    LONDON (Reuters) - A man who spent six days barricaded atop
    a construction crane in central London dressed as Spider-Man
    climbed down Wednesday.
    David Chick had dressed as his daughter's favorite comic
    book character to lobby against what he said was a legal system
    that kept him from seeing the girl.
    The stunt, near central London's Tower Bridge, caused
    traffic snarl-ups for days after police sealed the area for
    safety reasons.
    A police spokesman said Chick was arrested for creating a
    public nuisance after he climbed down before the Wednesday
    evening rush hour.
    London's Chamber of Commerce said the traffic cordon, which
    was lifted Tuesday evening, had cost businesses in the
    capital tens of millions of pounds.
    Chick, 36, was protesting to highlight the difficulties
    some separated or divorced fathers have in gaining access to
    their children. His friends say he has not seen his daughter
    for eight months.

    CLARENVILLE, Nfld. (CP) - RCMP are hoping they can turn up a
    turnip thief who has stolen more than $500 worth of the crop from
    an area farm in recent weeks.
    Some time between Monday evening and Tuesday morning, the
    vegetable villain drove into a turnip field near Lethbridge, Nfld.,
    and pinched some of the plants.
    It was one of many harvest heists to hit the farm in the past
    six weeks and the fed-up farmer finally complained to police on
    Tuesday.
    In addition to the cost of the pilfered veggies, the remaining
    turnip crop has been damaged during the heist, police said in a
    statement.
    The RCMP appealed for help from the public to solve the crime.

    November 6, 2003 -- Question: What do you call two lawyers caught naked in the laundry room of an apartment building where they don't live? Answer: busted.
    David Burleson and Todd Buss, both 40, were fined $200 after pleading no contest to disorderly conduct in Madison, Wis., but they have an explanation. The legal eagles say they got soaked while celebrating a University of Wisconsin football victory and were given permission by a building resident to come in and use the basement clothes dryer.Oh, by the way, cops say they were "extremely intoxicated."
