Family Homes On Sale For $1.00 Remain Unsold In Detroit

This is but one of a number of homes no one will even buy for just one dollar in the horrid city of Detoilet:

"It may not look particularly attractive, but as just $1 this family home is a complete bargain.

However, despite being on the market for the drop-down price since February last year, the Detroit property is astonishingly still for sale.

It is one of a number of run-down properties lying in the suburbs of Michigan's largest city, which earlier this month filed for bankruptcy, crippled by enormous debts.
Bargain: This 1915 home in Detroit has been on the market for just $1 for 519 days
Bargain: This 1915 home in Detroit has been on the market for just $1 for 519 days

Built in 1915, the property on Saint-Clair Street has been listed for sale since May 2011. 

After initially being placed on the market for $900, its price was dramatically reduced to just $1 in February last year.

A description of the property on the Zillow website describes it as a 'Multi Family home featuring 2 units, hardwood floors, basement, and much more!'

More Drunk Seagull Madness! A Flock Of Seagulls Drown In Lake

"Experts said more than 100 seagulls found dead in a British lake may have drowned as a result of getting drunk from eating flying ants.

Animal welfare officers said the seagulls found drowned at Wistlandpound Reservoir, near Combe Martin, England, may have been intoxicated from the formic acid released by ingesting flying ants, The Sun reported Wednesday.

The officers said seagulls have been known to fly into cars and buildings while intoxicated on the acid, which acts like alcohol in their digestive systems.

A spokesman for South West Water said tests have been carried out on the reservoir and the water has been determined to be safe."

Here is the other drunk seagull post:

Woman Dies After Hot Beef Fat Injection

"Family members told authorities Hardt had undergone multiple cosmetic surgeries to her face and neck. A short time before she died, she injected the heated beef fat into her face around her mouth and chin. Authorities said she apparently performed the procedure on several occasions in an attempt to simulate Botox, which reduces wrinkling.

Hardt had infections in her mouth and lip as well as scarring from the injections, sources said.

On Thursday, Hardt went to the hospital after complaining that her face felt like it was burning, sources said."

The cause of death was actually peritonitis,  and not stupidity,  they say.

Lions Replaced By Gnome, Homeowner Unconsolable

A Wisconsin woman targeted by pranksters said she does not consider the gnome left by her door to be a fair trade for her missing lion statues.

Liza Michna, 37, of Racine said she was at the hospital with her daughter, who was in a diabetic coma, about two weeks ago and returned home to find one of the lion statues that used to guard her front door was missing, The (Racine) Journal Times reported Monday.

Michna said the second lion was taken two days later and replaced with a lawn gnome.

Michna said the lions were a gift from her husband and five children on Mother's Day last year.
"I love those things," she said.

Michna said she won't press charges against the pranksters if the lions are returned unharmed.
"They can have their gnome," she said.

Dog Chews Off Paralized Owners Testicle

According to the official police report, the 39-year-old Trumann resident regularly sleeps in the raw, and was fully nude when he woke up yesterday around 7:45 AM to discover his dog "had eaten one of his testicles."

The unidentified owner had rescued the "small, white, fluffy" stray just three weeks ago, and had yet to take it in for a checkup.

Sadly, the dog's first visit to a vet was to be euthanized.
The Arkansas Department of Health will test the dog's remains for rabies.


Protip! Do Not Put Your Penis In A Toaster

The London Fire Brigade sends a message about putting body parts in improper places:

"We launched our campaign, #FiftyShadesofRed, in a bid to highlight some of the less conventional incidents we've attended over the past few years. We tweeted about the incidents from our account, @LondonFire, which certainly raised a few eyebrows, not least among some of my international firefighting colleagues who were surprised to see us putting it all out there, so to speak. This included nine instances of men with rings stuck in awkward places; nine people with their hands stuck in blenders and shredders; numerous people with their hands stuck in letterboxes; a child with a tambourine on its head … the list goes on. We've even been called out to rescue a man whose penis was stuck in a toaster. The mind boggles but the message is serious: use some common sense and remember we're an emergency service and should be treated as such."

Giant KFC Bucket Mysteriously Appears In Womans Yard

Aleena Headrick was taken aback by the large KFC bucket in her yard, "I was driving by, I saw this giant Kentucky Fried Chicken bucket in my yard, and I thought for sure I was hallucinating, so I called my teenagers who were at home and had them go outside."

And I know what you're thinking....the answer is no. There is no chicken in that seven foot bucket. Headrick tells me it appeared Thursday afternoon and she had no idea where it came from or who it belongs to. Maybe it's a sign. We've heard of heavenly manna, but what about original recipe?

Headrick loved the idea, and decided to share it with her friends, "Too often we just need something to laugh about and so I put it on Facebook and told them that I would bring chicken to the next potluck."

The bucket has already become a popular landmark. Headrick says people have been stopping to take pictures with it. But I don't imagine anyone can steal it easily. I know from experience, it's very hard to move.

Headrick's already thinking about making a "meal" of it, "Maybe we'll get giant mashed potatoes next to it."


Inflatable Bouncy House Explodes, Injuring Six Children

An inflatable bounce house at Julia Davis Park exploded Saturday, injuring six children.

Ada County Paramedics and Boise Fire Department responded to the park. They say the children were found trapped inside the bounce-house, with the walls folded in on top of them.

But paramedics say the children's injuries were minor and that they were able to treat and release them on scene.

"I don't know the exact number, but there were many, many children in there," said Jake Oven, Field Supervisor at Ada Paramedics. "In my 17 years in the EMS, this is the first time I've responded on a bounce-house explosion."

Giant Peeing Statue Amuses And Enrages

I understand how it can be amusing and enraging. :)

"Bad Bad Boy" by Finnish artist Tommi Toija stands towering over the river bank with his disproportionate body: lanky and topped with an over-sized, round, bald head. His skin, made from clay, is a blistering sunburnt-pink, and his wide-eyed facial expression is as hard to decipher as the art itself.

The installation has prompted discussion between locals and opinion is certainly divided. One Örebro resident, 62-year-old Ebba, was mildly amused. "I think it's interesting," she told The Local. "But I am happy it is not here forever."

Another local, 34-year-old Anna, said she "really hates" the artwork and found the act of urination "provocative."

 Artist Tommi Toijas views his work in a somewhat pragmatic light: "For me, it's just a guy peeing in the river, no more, no less. Some might see it as a funny thing, others might be provoked," he said in a statement.

Some have certainly been provoked as the sculpture remains as central to conversation as the weather in Örebro. While locals seem more baffled than upset, there does seem to be a sense of uncomfortableness amongst many."


Man Tries To Escape After His Wife Locks Him In Room

He may want to review his sheet tying techniques:

Pink Panther Makes Spectacular Prison Escape, Inspector Clouseau Unavailable For Comment

"A spectacular Swiss jailbreak has freed a member of the notorious Pink Panther gang of jewel thieves. 

The escapee was the third member of the Pink Panthers to get busted out of jail in recent months.

In a twist, a second man who fled during Thursday's jail break had escaped from the same prison once before in 1992.

Interpol has described the Pink Panthers as a loose network of about 200 criminals, mainly from the former Yugoslavia, who are linked to 341 robberies worth $438 million from gem shops in Dubai, Switzerland, the U.S., Japan, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Spain and Monaco.

Milan Poparic, 34, a Bosnian member of the jewelry gang, was sprung on Thursday from the Orbe prison in Switzerland's western canton of Vaud.

The two convicts escaped after a pair of accomplices rammed a pickup van into a side gate during exercise time, placed ladders over a barbed wire fence and sprayed prison guards with Kalashnikovs rifles. No one was injured.

The accomplices set the pickup van on fire and escaped with the prisoners in a second vehicle."

Switzerland may want to review their prison security.

The Caturday Report! Grumpy Cat Gives Pawtographs At Book Release Party!

"She also posed for pictures with her fans, although she still did not raise a smile. 

Hollywood producer Todd Garner plans to make a film featuring the permanently unhappy feline in which she will be given the power of speech in a family-orientated comedy.

Garner, who has worked on the Adam Sandler comedy 'Jack and Jill,' said: 'This started off as a picture of a cat, but rare is an image that evokes that much comedy.

'You read all of the memes and the comments, and one is funnier than the next. We think we can build a big family comedy around this character.'"

Now,  I think that they should stay far away from the guy that made 'Jack And Jill.' What a terrible movie that was!

Rare Baby Zonkey In Good Health

One part zebra, one part donkey, all parts fuzzy and adorable. Ippo, the foal of a male zebra and a female donkey, was reported to be in good health, just a few days after it was born at an animal reserve in Florence, Italy.

The story of Ippo's birth reads like the equine equivalent of a romance novel. The father is a zebra that was adopted by the animal reserve after he was rescued from a failing zoo. The mother is a Donkey of Amiata, an endangered animal species.

Even though a fence separated the two animals at the animal reserve, the zebra climbed over and mated with the donkey, producing Ippo. Serena Aglietti, one of the employees at the reserve, said in a statement, "Ippo is the only one of her kind in Italy."

Bird Thought To Be Extinct Gets Eaten

A rare quail from the Philippines was photographed for the first time before being sold as food at a poultry market, experts say.

Found only on the island of Luzon, Worcester's buttonquail was known solely through drawings based on dated museum specimens collected several decades ago.

Scientists had suspected the species—listed as "data deficient" on the International Union for Conservation of Nature's 2008 Red List—was extinct.

(See related bird photo: "Rare 'Smiling' Bird Photographed in Colombia.")

A TV crew documented the live bird in the market (above) before it was sold in January, according to the Agence France-Press news agency.

Michael Lu, president of the Wild Bird Club of the Philippines, told AFP the bird's demise should inspire a "local consciousness" about the region's threatened wildlife.

"What if this was the last of its species?" Lu said.

Market For Severed Human Penis' Growing Fast

State prosecutor Cecilia Zangazanga made the observation as four people were jailed for trying to sell private parts for 8m kwacha (£16,000) in May, reports the UK-based Nyasa Times. Two of them were arrested at a petrol station in the capital, Lilongwe, having been supplied with the genitalia by a hospital mortuary supervisor and attendant who'd cut the tissue from a corpse, the report says. The quartet was jailed for a total of 26 years.

Zangazanga asked for a long sentence as a deterrent, saying the number of cases was increasing, reports the site which has correspondents across the southern African state. In April, it reported that a 30-year-old businessman was fighting for life after having his genitals cut off in an attack in the southern city of Zomba. After a similar assault a year earlier, the website called the trade a sign of people's desperation to escape poverty. Genitals were in "high demand from witchdoctors", while "merchants" also sold penises and testicles abroad, it said.


Terrifically Terrible Titanic Tuna Terror!

Anthony Wichman, 54, was fishing about 10 miles southwest of Port Allen on the island of Kauai July 19 when he hooked the huge yellowfin, or ahi, tuna. Wichman’s struggle with the tuna pulled him overboard and left him clinging to his capsized boat, trying to get the fishing line untangled from his leg.

“He came to life quite suddenly and with a force, and jerked the rod out of my hands and took off with the line wrapped around my legs,” Wichman of Hawaii said.

The tuna, roughly the size of an NFL linebacker, pulled Wichman 50 feet under water.

“I had told myself that this was it. If he kept pulling there was nothing I could do,” he said.

With Wichman still being dragged and running out of air, the fish abruptly stopped swimming. Wichman was able to get back to the surface and call for help.

“Luckily, my waterproof cellphone worked and I first called my daughter and then called 911,” he said.

In newly released audio recordings, emergency responders zeroed in on Wichman’s cellphone to find the stranded fisherman holding on to his capsized boat.

“Oh, yes. I see you! You’re coming directly towards me,” Wichman can be heard saying in the 911 call.

“This is rescue helicopter,” an emergency responder said. “We have you in sight.”

Wichman suffered muscle damage to his leg following the struggle with the tuna.

As for the tuna, it was not the fish that got away. Wichman’s friends arrived on the scene shortly after the incident and found the half submerged boat with the tuna still attached to the fishing line. Wichman let his friends keep the fish and sell it for $1,400.


Gang Of Cats Savagely Attack Woman

The 31-year-old woman had apparently been out walking her pet poodle when she was set upon by half a dozen blood thirsty moggies.

 The victim’s mother Josette Galliot described the mob attack.

"They scratched and bit my daughter and really went for her," Galliot told Est Republicain.
“They jumped on her and managed to knock her over. The wild cats bit her on the leg and on her arms. They even pierced an artery," she said.

Her daughter was then taken to hospital where she received precautionary rabies treatment. In a separate vehicle, the dog was transported to the local vet.

“My daughter thought it was a living nightmare,” the woman’s mother added. “She’s still traumatized today – and is bordering on depression.”

Lost Hikers Rescued, Immediately Drive Off Boat Ramp And Die

Sad stuff.  Final Destination anyone?

"Amy Stiner, 37, of Machias, and Melissa Moyer, 38, of Sunbury, Pa., presumably drowned when Stiner drove her car down the boat ramp at the end of a dead-end road at about 9 p.m. Tuesday in this town of 300 people in eastern Maine, said Washington County Sheriff Donnie Smith.

Smith called the deaths a tragic accident made worse because Stiner was five months pregnant. The two were found in the back of the minivan likely due to the fact it sank from the front, The Bangor Daily News reported. A dog was also found dead inside the minivan.

"They called on the phone that they were in the water and the car was filling up. Then the phone went dead," Smith said. "An hour later, the deputies found the car."

Earlier in the evening, the women got lost while hiking in Roque Bluffs State Park amid fog and a steady downpour, the Portland Press Herald reported.

An off-duty firefighter found them and their dog and gave them rides on his ATV back to his house, where a warden picked them up and brought them to the 2001 Dodge Caravan.

Stiner then drove toward the boat ramp instead of in the other direction to Machias, Smith said. Weather could have contributed to the accident, Smith said.

"It appears they went the wrong direction and drove off the ramp," he said. "If you don't know the area, in the fog and rain it wouldn't be a difficult thing to do."

Authorities found the submerged car about 175 feet off the boat ramp, the women and the dog inside with the doors closed and the windows up.

Hungry Seagull Steals Woman's False Teeth

Seagull Thief Smiles For The Camera. :)

A greedy seagull swooped down and stole a pensioner's false teeth after she took them out to eat a biscuit.

Renee A'Bear, 92, was feeding the birds and having a cup of coffee outside her care home when her dentures ended up on the menu.

Staff at Eridge House Residential Home in Bexhill-on-Sea, East Sussex, later found the teeth - worth hundreds of pounds - on the roof.

Boss Linda Stevens said: "All of us, including Renee, have seen the funny side.
"But she's going to be a bit more circumspect in future as to which birds she feeds."

Commuters Push Train Off Trapped Woman


While getting off a subway train a woman slipped and fell between the train and the platform,  pinning her at the hips.

"Fortunately, the station staff were paying attention and caught the problem immediately, quickly announcing, “Someone is trapped!”

According to one Twitter user who was there, the staff first asked everyone to move to the opposite side of the train, but after that failed, they called everyone off to help.

Fellow commuters then got out and pushed the train away from the platform, allowing the staff free the trapped woman!

Once she was pulled to safety, the woman was taken to the hospital, though fortunately she had no visible injuries."

Rotten Corpse Flower Finally Blooms

Curious crowds are experiencing the fleeting bloom of the unusual "corpse flower."

The 8-foot flower bloomed Sunday at the U.S. Botanic Garden next to the Capitol. But by the time visitors lined up Monday morning, Plant Curator Bill McLaughlin says the "incredible stench" of rotting flesh the flower is famous for had cleared out. The plant is native to the tropical rainforests of Sumatra, Indonesia.

Experts had anticipated the bloom for more than a week, and it is now expected to collapse on itself. The garden's last corpse flower bloom was in 2007.


Protip! When Using A Blowgun, Do Not Inhale

Doctors at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, were puzzled when a 15-year-old boy showed up in the emergency room coughing and wheezing. The youth said the cough started three hours earlier, while he was playing in his room with siblings.

An X-ray showed something long, steely and needle-like in the boy's windpipe.

On further questioning, the boy admitted to having built a blowgun, using instructions he found on the Internet. But the project came to grief when the boy put the blowgun to his lips, then inhaled.

That meant a trip to the operating room, where doctors were able to remove the metal dart using a tube called a . No long term harm done, except perhaps to the young maker's pride.

An odd one-off accident, you might say. But no.

Over the next three months in 2011, the same hospital had two more teenage boys show up coughing. They, too, eventually confessed to inhaling blowgun darts. Those lads, ages 14 and 15, were also treated and recovered.


Police Confirm Woman Killed Falling From Roller Coaster Died From Falling From Roller Coaster

Chloe The Timid Abused Adopted Doggie Overcomes Fears To Save Owners Life

Weintraub collapsed last Wednesday from heart complications. He was home alone with his golden retrievers, DaMa, 8, and Molly, 11, and Chloe, a 1-year-old pit bull-mix Weintraub and his wife began fostering in April. 

The retrievers, confined by collars that respond to an invisible electric fence, cannot leave the yard, he said. Weintraub never fit Chloe with a similar collar because she wouldn't leave his side. 

After Weintraub's collapse, however, Chloe went down the family's long driveway, crossed a road and stopped in front of a neighbor's house. 

“As soon as I saw her at our fence, I knew something was wrong,” neighbor Mike Brock said. “She never wanted anything to do with us before.” 

Afraid Chloe would be hit by a car, Brock, his wife Michele, and daughters Melissa and Julianna, tried to calm the dog, which paced nervously. 

“As I'd get to her, she'd take off,” Brock said. “But only a little ways, then she'd wait for me. In 15- to 20-foot increments, she was leading me to Chuck.” 

Chloe led Brock around the house where the retrievers greeted him, but not in their normal, playful way, Brock said. 

“They were moving away from me,” Brock said. “I'd say, ‘Hey, come back here,' and they'd move a little farther up the hill. That's when I saw the bottom of Chuck's shoes.” 

He yelled to his wife to call 911 and began chest compressions on Weintraub. Another neighbor, a registered nurse, rushed up the hill and began mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. 

Throughout the rescue, Chloe laid in the uncut grass, her face inches away from Weintraub's, Michele Brock said. 

Six days later, with a newly implanted pacemaker, Weintraub shook his head in disbelief. 

“This dog was terrified, traumatized,” he said. “She'd put her paws over her eyes and pretend the world wasn't there, she was so scared. I can't believe she left the yard like that.”

Drunk Seagulls Assault People, Steal Food, Fly Into Buildings, Wreak Havok

It's the gulls eating a glut of flying ants that they are getting drunk from:

"The ants then turn to formic acid in their stomachs and act like alcohol - causing the gulls to lose inhibitions around humans and brazenly steal food.

They are left so tipsy the gulls have been seen flying straight into buildings and into the paths of moving cars.

Dr Rebecca Nesbit, an entomologist with the Society of Biology, said the problem is worse this summer because the hot weather is bringing out record numbers of flying ants.

She added: "That isn't so good for the birds - it leaves them a bit drunk."

RSPB spokesman Tony Whitehead added: "Gulls love flying ants and as they come out of the ground the birds will feast on them early in the morning and late in the evening."

The Caturday Report! "I had sex with my cat and everybody knows!" :(

"Convinced that a neighbor spoke to others about her having sex with a cat, an Oklahoma woman allegedly threatened the man with a knife, saying, “Do you wanna die?”

Oklahoma City cops arrested Kristina Michelle Brown following her bizarre confrontation Monday afternoon with 72-year-old Elmer Morrison. The 23-year-old Brown was charged with assault and battery with a deadly weapon, a felony, and booked into jail, where she is being held in lieu of $5000 bail.

According to an Oklahoma City Police Department report, Morrison told a cop that Brown had been standing at the fence between their houses yelling, “Come outside I know you are in there.” With a small pocket knife in hand, Brown then repeatedly asked, “Do you wanna die?”

When police questioned Brown, she explained she was upset with Morrison “because of what he did to me.”

When a cop asked what he did to her, she replied, “Because everyone knows.” She then said, “I had sex with my cat and everyone knows.”

Morrison claimed that he had no idea of what she was ranting about.  Now everyone knows indeed!   Go to  THE SMOKING GUN   to read more,  including the police report.

Woman Burns Up Picasso And Monet Paintings Worth $143 Million In Stove

The mother of a Romanian art heist suspect has admitted to torching seven stolen masterpieces, including works by Picasso and Monet, the Mediafax news agency reports.
 The mother of suspect Radu Doragu said she incinerated the artworks, valued at over 100 million euros ($143.4 million), in her stove in a bid to "destroy any evidence".

"After the arrest of my son in January 2013, I was very scared because I knew that what had happened was very serious," Mediafax reported Mr Dogaru's mother as saying, citing court documents.

"I placed the suitcase containing the paintings in the stove. I put in some logs, slippers and rubber shoes and waited until they had completely burned."

The court documents appear to confirm earlier fears, after it was reported in May that investigators were combing through ashes found in her home.

Six Romanians will stand trial in August for what has been called the "theft of the century".
The seven masterpieces were swiped from Rotterdam's Kunsthal museum on October 16 in less than 90 seconds.

Meth Lab Catches Fire In Police Car

A Syracuse police officer found methamphetamine cooking in a bag inside his squad car after arresting a man on a domestic disturbance charge.
The officer noticed a strange chemical odor after taking the man to the Kosciusko County Jail. Thinking it was coming from the jail's intake bay, he pulled out.

The odor got worse and the back seat began to fill with smoke. The Journal Gazette reports ( ) the officer said a nylon bag in the back seat that he originally thought was the man's clothing burst into flames after he pulled it from the car.

The officer was treated at a hospital for inhalation of sulfuric acid and gas after Saturday night's incident.


Bedbugs On Defendants Cause Courtroom Chaos

Pandemonium erupted inside Manhattan Criminal Court Tuesday after panicked spectators said they spotted bedbugs crawling up the neck of a man who was there to answer to a desk-appearance ticket.

The sickening sight sent court observers scrambling out of their seats, a witness told the Daily News.

“People started bolting,” added the witness, a 49-year-old Manhattan woman. “Even the court officers were freaked out. It was disgusting.”

A woman stood up and announced that a man sitting near her was covered with the creepy crawlies, sparking chaos in the benches.

Several observers raced out of the courtroom. The apparent offender also sprinted away from the scene, the witness said.

The court officers emptied the three final rows, and the proceedings continued, the witness said.

After about 20 minutes, an exterminator arrived and the courtroom was evacuated.

Demolition Crew Flattens Wrong House

Officials in Fort Worth, Texas, said they are looking into a demolition crew's mistaken razing of the wrong home.

City officials confirmed Monday the house, which was unoccupied at the time, was mistakenly demolished July 12 instead of the nearby property scheduled for demolition, KDFW-TV, Dallas/Fort Worth, reported Tuesday.

David Underwood, owner of the demolished home, said the house had been in his family for decades, but no one was living in the structure at the time of the demolition.

"We came around Silver Creek looking for the lot and my wife said, David... I think the house is gone," Underwood said. "We looked up there and sure enough, it's gone!"

Underwood said there were some irreplaceable personal items and antiques inside the home when it was demolished.

Dry Asparagus Is Racist

I think (hope) that today's journalism has played the trump race card with this one...

"A dried-out batch of asparagus has touched off a debate about racial discrimination, grocery stores and the role of citizen-led commissions.

It started in May when resident David Olander was perusing the produce section of the University City Schnucks. He noticed the asparagus weren’t resting in a tray of water.

“It was just sitting there dried out,” said Olander, a member of the city’s human relations commission.

Olander summoned an assistant manager, and then he asked the question: Did the quality of the asparagus have any relationship to the store’s location in a black neighborhood?

“‘I certainly hope not,’” Olander recalled the manager saying."

Easter Bunny Mascot Attacked By Crazed Teacher, Has Head Ripped Off

The stressed out teacher yelled "IT'S NOT A THE REAL EASTER BUNNY,  IT'S A FRAUD!"  and proceeded to rip the head off the Easter Bunny to the horrified cries and wailing of petrified children.

"The person wearing a three-piece costume, including a helmet assembly with chin strap and large pink ears, had his head and neck jerked backwards when the bunny’s head was pulled by Harry and the chin strap broke.

Another employee asked several times for Harry to leave the store before being pushed in the chest with force.

He lost his balance, fell backwards into a child and then to the ground with everything captured on closed-circuit camera."

Walmart Madness #99! Backpack Filled With Sex Toys Causes Bomb Scare In Walmart

A man carrying a backpack full of sex toys caused a horrible bomb scare at an Aurora,  Colorado Walmart the other night.  What was thought to be a backpack full of high explosives turned out to be filled with penis pumps,  clothes pins,  anal lubricant,  feathers,  a whip,  and a package of glow sticks.

The bomb disposal team at the scene of the horrible Walmart sex toy bomb scare

"...a man wearing a backpack acted suspicious when the woman he was with was caught shoplifting, said Cassidee Carlson, Aurora police spokeswoman.

"Police contacted him in the parking lot after security looked in the backpack and saw some liquids and piping," she said.

Something in the backpack got a "hit" from a bomb-sniffing dog, so the bomb squad was called in, she said.

"There was no bomb, only sex toys," she said. "The man had active warrants, so he was arrested, anyway."

Photographer Accidentally Captures Lover's Suicide Leap

The dramatic leap of two lovers from a bridge in Wuhan, in central China, has been accidently captured by a photographer.

A photographer from the local Hubei Daily was taking snaps of air pollution blanketing the Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge, when his camera lens snatched a man's body falling amidst the thick smog.
The unnamed reporter didn't have the time to realise what tragic event he had just witnessed before a second body, this time of a woman leaped into the river from the same spot.

'To be honest I didn't even see the first person jump because I was concentrating so much on the camera settings and I didn't realise at first that I had snapped the man jumping to his death," the photographer was quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.

"It was only then after snapping the photograph that I heard someone shout that somebody had jumped. I heard him hit the water below and then seconds later a woman climbed onto the bridge and jumped as well."

Vampire Graves Unearthed In Poland

No word on whether they kept garlic or a crucifix nearby as they dug, but Polish archaeologists say they've unearthed four "vampire" skeletons.

The remains were found with the head placed between their legs; folk tradition held that this burial arrangement would ensure that a possible bloodsucker couldn't find his head and come back to life.
Though an archaeologist tells Polskie Radio that "it's very difficult to tell when these burials were carried out" due to their lack of jewelry or other items that could be dated, they likely occurred long before 1914 — the date of the last recorded "vampire" burial in the country.


Man Using Restroom Gets Bitten On Penis By Snake

A routine restroom break took a turn for the worst for an Israeli man who said an irritable snake bit him in the penis as he relieved himself.

"There is undoubtedly bite marks on the area in question," a representative of Rambam Medical Center told Ynetnews. "It seems the snake is not poisonous."

Paramedics told Ynetnews the victim was a bit surprised at the sudden turn of events, but was calm and even shared a laugh with the emergency crew about the situation.

The Caturday Report! Creepy Kitty Killer Gets A Year In Jail

“You are a criminal. The jury’s verdict made you a criminal . . . A prison sentence is warranted. You acted with aggravated cruelty to an animal, which you admitted to,” said [judge] Zayas.

He added that Ferrugio turned down probation offers on “several occasions,” despite warnings that he could get jail time.

This video shows my Mom taking out the ones in his face. Very bizarre he let us get that close and even more bizzare he let my Mom pull the quills out. He hung around for the day and was gone the next."

Walmart Madness #97! Man Throws His Sperm Onto Female Shopper

"A Delaware man threw semen on a female customer shopping at Walmart Tuesday afternoon, police allege.

Cops arrested Frank J. Short Jr., 22, on an assortment of charges in connection with the repulsive incident at the store in New Castle. Short, seen in the below mug shot, was booked into a Wilmington jail, from which he was later released on bail.

According to a Delaware State Police report, the 20-year-old victim was standing in a Walmart aisle texting on her phone when Short walked past her, saying “Excuse me.” At that point, police noted, she “suddenly felt something wet on her buttocks, thigh and leg.”

Upon examination, the woman--who thought she may have been spat upon--realized there was a “a ‘glob’ of semen on her leg, just below her knee,” reported police. Preliminary testing of the substance was “indicative of semen,” investigators added.

The woman, who said she was initially “in shock at what had happened,” told cops that as she walked through Walmart looking for help, Short followed her. She subsequently was escorted by workers to a security office, where a store manager called police (who, upon arrival, arrested Short)."
