Miranda Lambert’s Broken, Cheatin’ Heart

Are things getting rocky for Adam Levine and his wife, Beheati Prinsloo after just one year of marriage?

A source told Radar Online that Adam is acting like the same playboy he was before he got married, and that’s a problem for his wife. He goes out all the time and hangs out with other models.

A Guy Called 911 Because His Girlfriend’s Cat Ate His Bacon

So we have to ask ourselves: Is this unwarranted use of 911 or is it a true emergency since someone stole someone else’s bacon???

A guy in West Yorkshire, England called the police recently, because he was FURIOUS that his girlfriend had just let their CAT eat his BACON. He tells the dispatcher he wants to press charges against both the cat AND his girlfriend.

The dispatcher explains that they can’t arrest the cat . . . and since it’s not a crime to let a cat eat bacon, it’s not a police issue. As far as we know, the guy WASN’T arrested for making a frivolous emergency call.


A Guy Caught a Burglar Putting a Ladder Outside His Window, So He Pulled It Inside

I love any story where an idiot tries to rob someone, and ends up with LESS than he had going in . . .

A guy in Manchester, England called the cops around 11:30 Tuesday night, when he noticed a guy setting up a LADDER outside his apartment, leading to one of his windows. Which is usually only something you see in movies, but whatever.

So he reported it as a possible burglary in progress. Then while he was on the phone, he saw the guy standing near the bottom of the ladder, talking to two other people.

It’s not clear if the other two were involved, or just stopped to ask the guy why he was trying to climb through someone’s window in the middle of the night. But the guy who lived there realized the burglar was distracted. So he reached out the window . . . grabbed the ladder . . . and pulled it inside while his back was turned.

The burglar eventually ran off without the ladder, and the cops are trying to track down some security footage so they can I.D. him.


A Guy Stopped a Robbery, Then Finished Proposing to His Girlfriend

Nicholas Anderson of Hickory, North Carolina took his girlfriend to a restaurant on Monday, and planned on PROPOSING to her there.

But just before he could ask her to marry him, a guy busted in to ROB the place. So Nicholas quickly shifted gears. He jumped up . . . grabbed the guy . . . put him in a choke hold . . . and knocked him out.

Now that his crime fighting was out of the way, Nicholas was back to marriage proposal mode . . . but the whole robbery thing had kinda ruined the romantic atmosphere in the restaurant. So they left and went to a park, where he finally proposed . . . and she said yes.

He says, quote, “After all that happened, asking her to marry me wasn’t near as bad.”

A J.C. Penney Employee Was Sent Home For Wearing Something Too Revealing — That She’d Bought in the Store

And now, a phrase I never thought I’d say: That J.C. Penney outfit is just too sexy.

A 17-year-old named Sylva Stoel was working at her job at J.C. Penney last week and her boss pulled her aside and told her she had to go home and CHANGE, because the red shorts she was wearing were, quote, “too revealing.”

There’s only one problem. Sylva had bought the shorts THERE . . . in J.C. Penney’s “career” section.

She told the manager it wasn’t fair to send her home for that, but he insisted. When he asked her how long it would take her to go home and change, she said it would take the whole day, because she wasn’t coming back. Yep . . . she QUIT.

Stupid Criminals!!!

New Jersey cops pulled over OCTAVIO DELASUAREE when he cut them off on the highway.

They described him as breathing heavy, shaking uncontrollably and having white powder around his nostrils and mouth. They asked him if the white powder was cocaine, and he replied, “No officer! I just ate a powdered donut!”

The cops weren’t buying that line, especially since they found a 9mm semi-automatic gun in the car along with four hollow point bullets, 17 Oxycodone pills, drug paraphernalia and, anyone want to guess what else? Cocaine. Stupid Criminals!!!


Traffic Cop Saves The Life Of Choke Victim He Pulled Over

An Austin, Texas police officer pulled over a woman who he thought was talking on her cell phone while behind the wheel.

The officer yanked the woman out of the car, performed the Heimlich maneuver, and saved her life!!

She was NOT given a ticket.

Ben Affleck Denies He’s “Tipping the Nanny”

It would appear that BEN AFFLECK has been Tipping the Nanny!!! At least that’s the latest tabloid gossip.

“Us Weekly” says Ben has been enjoying the extracurricular services of 28-year-old Christine Ouzounian, who was hired by Ben and Jen this past spring to watch their kids.

(Here’s a picture of Ben with her back in April.)

Supposedly, things started getting intimate between them while Ben and Jen were on a trial separation. And when Jennifer found out, she fired her. But Ben and Christine have been seen together as recently as July 17th.

Ben’s rep has come out swinging, saying, quote, “All allegations of a romantic relationship are baseless and untrue. We are considering legal options.”


The Most Hated Man On the Internet

The biggest story online is that Minnesota dentist who felt the need to pay $55,000 to have some African locals lure a protected lion out of a park, so he could kill it.

His name is Walter Palmer, and he’s the most hated man on the internet right now. Probably the most hated man in the world, when it comes right down to it.

JIMMY KIMMEL has created something positive out of this story. He asked that people make a donation to Oxford’s Wildlife Conservation Research Unit.

They’re the group that had helped turn Cecil the Lion into a pseudo-celebrity, by having him equipped with a GPS for tracking and research purposes.

And in less than 24 hours, more than 2,600 people had made donations totaling over $155,000.

(You can revisit Kimmel’s bit, here.)

Getting’ Freaky On the Web!

Wedding season is here and crazy single girls will do almost anything to catch that bouquet –even forget to care for small, innocent children!

A video making the rounds shows a woman’s desperate attempt to catch the bouquet at a wedding.  The unidentified wedding guest is seen holding a baby as the bride tosses the bouquet overhead. In a mad dash to grab the flowers, the woman appears to forget there’s a baby in her arms. She drops the kid to the floor as she reaches for the bouquet.

She immediately realizes her mistake and rushes to comfort the child, who doesn’t appear to be seriously injured. Someone posted the footage, which has been viewed 691,000 times. Rest assured, the child was not injured in the wedding fun and games.


Dead or Alive??

Congrats! You’ve lived to be 92! Oh sorry, you woke up in the morgue.

A woman in Germany fell ill and on a check-in, her visiting nurse found her unresponsive and not breathing. She called a doctor in who pronounced the woman dead.

Relatives all said their final goodbyes and off to the morgue she went, only to wake up in the undertakers cooler. She started screaming for help –and thankfully he heard her and had her rushed to the hospital.

She did die two days later, but not from anything that happened at the morgue. However, the doctor that pronounced her dead is due in court on charges of bodily harm caused by negligence.


A Woman Is Banned From Talking About Her Ex on Facebook, or She’ll Get Five Years in Prison

Is talking smack about your ex on Facebook worth going to jail for? I guess we’re about to find out.

40-year-old Maureen Curoe of Belfast, Northern Ireland was in a long relationship with a guy named Adrian McAleese, but they broke up three years ago. And ever since then, she’s been BLASTING him and his new girlfriend on Facebook.

She would post lies about Adrian, she called his new girlfriend nasty things, and she even made up a fake Facebook account to send them obscene messages. So Adrian finally called the police, and Maureen was in court this week.

The judge decided the posts weren’t a legitimate threat, but he DID put a restraining order on Maureen’s Facebook use. If she mentions Adrian or contacts him on Facebook in the next two years, she’ll go to prison for FIVE years.  Click here to see a picture of Maureen.

An 18-Year-Old Tom Hanks Wrote an Awesome Letter to a Famous Director

TOM HANKS was awesome even before we knew who he was.

When he was 18 years old, he wrote a brilliant and hysterical letter to Oscar winning director GEORGE ROY HILL, begging to be “discovered”.

Tom told him, quote, “My looks are not stunning. I am not built like a Greek God, and I can’t even grow a mustache, but I figure if people will pay to see certain films . . . they will pay to see me.”

And he closed the letter with this . . . quote, “I do not want to be some bigtime, Hollywood superstar with girls crawling all over me, just a hometown American boy who has hit the big-time, owns a Porsche, and calls Robert Redford ‘Bob’.”

(The letter is at the Library of the Motion Picture Academy in Beverly Hills, which you can read more about here.)



Yesterday, the NFL announced that Commissioner ROGER GOODELL has upheld New England Patriots quarterback TOM BRADY’s four game-suspension brought about by his alleged involvement with “Deflate-gate.”

Goodell says the evidence supports findings that “Brady participated in a scheme to tamper with the game balls” and that he “willfully obstructed the investigation” by having his cell phone destroyed knowing its importance as evidence.

Brady claims he destroyed his cell phone and SIM card around the date that he met with independent investigator TED WELLS in March. He testified that he frequently buys new phones and destroys his previous ones.

It is widely believed that Brady and the National Football League Players’ Association will petition a federal judge to vacate the suspension or at least temporarily restrain the NFL from imposing it until a trial could take place.


Donald Trump Isn’t Really Worth $10-Billion – It’s more like $2.9 BILLION!!

When Donald Trump filled out his financial disclosure papers for his presidential candidacy, he stated that he is worth $10-billion dollars….and he even wrote it in ALL capital letters.

But, Bloomberg Magazine is saying that they ran their own analysis and discovered that Trump’s actually worth a lot less than that – “just” $2.9 billion, because he can’t claim value on his real estate holdings, including skyscrapers and golf courses.

Trump hasn’t commented on the report yet.

A Guy Tried to Take a Selfie with a Rattlesnake, and Ended Up With a Hospital Bill for $153,000

Remember the woman last week who tried to take a selfie with a BISON? It ended poorly.

A guy in San Diego named Todd Fassler tried to take a selfie with a RATTLESNAKE back on the Fourth of July. He says he feels comfortable around rattlesnakes, since he used to have one as a PET. But the selfie didn’t work out so well, because he got BITTEN.

He ended up in intensive care, and there’s a nasty video of his right arm . . . the whole thing turned dark purple from the venom. But the financial fallout might be worse.

He was in the hospital for almost a week and two different hospitals had to use all of their anti-venom to save his life. The bill was more than 153 THOUSAND DOLLARS. More than half of that was for the anti-venom.

It looks like he doesn’t have insurance, so he’s responsible for ALL of it.


From The Man Bites Dog, Dep’t:

Police in Casper, Wyoming, hadn’t seen everything, until yesterday.

A routine traffic stop turned out to be more than they bargained for when the man stepped out of his El Camino and several eyeballs slid out of his right pant leg. At first they thought they had a serial killer on their hands, but turns out they had a cannibal of sorts.

ROY TILBOTT, who’s 51, works at Johnson Meats, a nearby slaughterhouse, where they usually throw out extra parts of the cows they slaughter. Roy finds it a waste, and since he loves the taste of cow eyeballs, he decided to smuggle them home, in his pants.

Quote, “Company won’t let us take animal scraps home and instead toss them in the landfill. They’re a very wasteful company. I enjoy eating bovine eyeballs and smuggling them out was the only way I knew how to get them out without potentially getting caught.”

When asked how many he’d taken over the years, Tilbott estimates several thousand. Police are waiting to talk to his employer before they press any charges.


Impaled By A Tree Branch

A bicyclist in New Mexico was impaled by a tree branch and somehow survived.

Doctors say the branch somehow missed his airways, nerves, and major blood vessels. He was treated and released.

A Couple Ordered a Double Cheeseburger at McDonald’s, and Got a Wet Rag Instead

Debbie and Hans Wirth of Elk Grove Village, Illinois went through a McDonald’s drive-thru last week, and got a double cheeseburger.

But when they got home and unwrapped it, instead of finding their burger . . . they found a WET RAG. So they called the store, and the manager told them to come in so he could give them a burger. But that made them upset, since he didn’t even apologize.

Eventually he DID call and say he was sorry, and was looking into what happened . . . but it seems like the Wirths are done with his McDonald’s.

Not ALL McDonald’s, though. Hans went to a DIFFERENT one the next night and ordered a double cheeseburger. And they actually served him the burger, not a wet rag.

A Couple on a First Date Got Lost Hiking and Had to Be Airlifted Out

I hope these two wind up getting married, because they have an unbeatable “bad first date” story.

A guy and girl in Los Angeles had their first date on Friday, and decided to go on a hike through Angeles National Forest. Their ages weren’t released, but the sheriff’s department says they were young.

Well somehow they got lost in the forest, REALLY lost. It got so bad that they wandered around until they could find cell phone service, and called for help. Then the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department had to send a HELICOPTER out to rescue them, and they were airlifted out of the forest.

There’s no word if they’re planning to go on a second date.

A Good Laugh About A Very Smelly Situation

A truck carrying a bunch of porta potties crashed on a highway in Washington state last week.

They sent out a tweet later that said traffic was very “constipated,” and that the road was “backed up” for about five miles.
