A Guy Burns Down His Own House For Attention!

On Wednesday, a 27-year-old in Rockville, Maryland burned down the house he was living in.  He did a pretty good job because it took two different fire stations had to fight the fire.

And with a fire this big, it attracted the attention of a couple of local TV stations.  That’s when the resident walked up to reporters and openly admitted that he started the fire.

He said he did it so the local news would expose how terrible the living conditions were inside, which obviously isn’t possible now, because the place burned to the ground.

Luckily, no one was hurt.


A Guy Tries to Rob a Store Using a Photo of a Gun

A 34-year-old man went into a grocery store in Cambridge, England last week . . . walked up to the staff . . . told them he was robbing the place . . . and threatened to kill them if they didn’t give him the money.

And then, he whipped out his gun.  Well . . . not exactly.

He actually whipped out a PICTURE of a gun.

The employees weren’t QUITE as intimidated by a picture of a gun as they would’ve been by a gun itself . . . although he could’ve probably given one or two of them NASTY paper cuts.  So they stalled the guy while they called the cops.

Police rushed to the store and arrested the guy for making threats to kill.

Stupid Criminals!!!


A Guy Pulled a Baby from a Submerged Car, Then Another Guy Did CPR and Saved Its Life

On Monday, a guy in Maine hit a patch of ice and flipped his SUV into a stream.  The stream was frozen and the SUV was upside down.

The driver and his two passengers were able to get out . . . but a three-month-old BABY was still trapped in the backseat.

That’s when a 44-year-old logger named Leo stopped to help.  He immediately dove in, used a pocket knife to cut the seatbelt, and pulled her out while she was still strapped into her car seat.

At that point she’d stopped breathing.  But a 32-year-old named Wade, who had also stopped to help, administered CPR and was able to revive the baby.

According to police, the baby is also doing fine.

Quick Update On Bill Cosby

Four women came out yesterday with new accusations against BILL COSBY.  In the meantime, DONALD TRUMP thinks Cosby is getting “very bad advice” from his PR team, and should be out there addressing all of this.


ABC Is Supposedly Freaked Out That Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea Will Show Too Much Booty While Performing “Booty” 

Rumor has it ABC is nervous that JENNIFER LOPEZ and IGGY AZALEA’S performance of “Booty” at the American Music Awards on Sunday will be too raunchy.

Supposedly, they’ve banned some of the dance movements, if you know what we mean?

The fact that ABC is worried about it being too raunchy is valid since the dance movements in the actual video are closer to Cinemax than ABC.

Iggy says it’ll be fine, but, quote, “We aren’t performing in turtleneck sweaters.”


Is Scarlett Johansson Married? 

SCARLETT JOHANSSON added some bling to her engagement finger.  She’s now wearing a simple gold band in addition to her engagement ring.

So naturally, people are wondering if she and fiancé Romain Dauriac secretly got married.  There’s no actual evidence they did, of course.  Scarlett and Romain have a 2-month-old daughter named Rose Dorothy.

(Check out the new ring here.)


Khloe Kardashian’s Dieting Secret Is . . . Spraying Windex on Her Food? 

The “National Enquirer” claims KHLOE KARDASHIAN has a brilliant new plan to lose weight.

She orders whatever she wants . . . takes a bite or two . . . and then sprays a “Windex-like cleaner” on the food so she won’t keep eating it.

The source adds, quote, “Khloe has no problems wasting food as long as it helps her maintain her figure.”

(This seems too idiotic to be true, but with the Kardashians you never know.)

Bill Cosby Has Lost His NBC Series and a Netflix Special 

If BILL COSBY didn’t do what all those women say he did, then this is tragic . . . because his career is seriously unraveling.  Of course, if he did it, then he’s getting exactly what he deserves.

NBC has decided not to move forward with a new sitcom that Bill was going to star in.  And Netflix will no longer air a standup special that was scheduled to premiere next Friday.

And here’s one more kick in the pants:  TV Land is dumping reruns of “The Cosby Show”, effective immediately.


Bono Actually Suffered Some Serious Injuries in His Bike Accident 

When U2 announced that BONO was in a “cycling spill” last weekend, they were REALLY downplaying it because he suffered some severe injuries.

They include:  A facial fracture, a shoulder blade broken in three places, and a shattered left arm, where the bone TORE THROUGH HIS SKIN.

It’s still unclear how long he’ll need to recuperate.  “Rolling Stone” says a full recovery is expected, but he’ll require, quote, “intensive and progressive therapy.”

Remember, most fast-food restaurants have a policy where you must be in a car to be served at the drive thru.  So when Taco Bell wouldn’t serve Gabriel, he refused to leave.

This week’s featured pet is Fiona.


Fiona is a 10 month old boxer mix. She was found dirty, hungry, uncomfortable, with an old bone jammed across the roof of her mouth, wandering a busy Memphis street.

However, as with all animals, supervision is crucial during any transition period. Fiona is ready for adoption. Sweet as can be, she loves people, loves to talk, cuddle and play! And can’t wait to meet you!!

If you would like to adopt this week’s dog…please click here to fill out an electronic adoption form.

We couldn’t do Wet Nose Wednesday without the generous support of our sponsor, Dixie Memorial Pet Cemetery.

A Drunk Guy Steals a Bulldozer to Drive Home — and Forges a Path of Destruction

30-year-old Christopher Russell of Newark, New Jersey got drunk on Friday night, and while he was walking home he got a brilliant idea.

He saw some keys in the ignition of a BULLDOZER, and decided to drive it home.

We’re guessing that Christopher had never driven a bulldozer before, based on what happened.

He tried to drive through a park, and forged a MASSIVE path of destruction. He leveled three benches, a tree, a drinking fountain, a fence, some signs . . . then left the park and smashed into a car.

By that point, the cops had gotten some calls about a guy wreaking havoc on a bulldozer and got to the scene.

Stupid Criminals!!!

Christopher was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated, criminal mischief, leaving the scene of an accident, and theft.

So James flipped out . . . they got into an argument . . . and he assaulted her. She called the cops, and he was arrested for battery.

There was just one condition . . . he had to pat Richard down before he let him into the car. That makes sense . . . what if Richard had a gun on him?

So Richard agreed to the patdown . . . and the cop found MARIJUANA on him.

Stupid Criminals!!!

About 20 miles into the drive, another driver flagged them down and told them there was a DOG on the side of the ambulance. They didn’t really have a choice at that point, so they loaded Buddy into the back and took him the rest of the way.
