A Guy Goes to a Police Station to Report a Robbery . . . and the Guy Who Robbed Him Shows Up Too

In Melbourne, Australia Ross Moresi realized someone had stolen two of his surfboards, worth close to a thousand dollars each.

So he called around to local surf shops, to see if anyone had tried to sell them.  And it turned out some guy DID sell them to a place, and he used the name Daniel Burne.

So Ross wrote down the name, and went to his local police station to report it.  And while he was standing in line, a guy who was out on bail showed up because he had to check in.  And Ross heard him say that HIS name was Daniel Burne.

Ross told the cops and a few minutes later, Daniel confessed to the whole thing and Ross ended up getting both of his surfboards back.

(Check out a photo of Ross with one of his boards here.)

Miley Cyrus Could Be in Trouble for Letting a Dancer Spank Her With a Mexican Flag 

MILEY CYRUS might be in a little trouble for her antics during a show in Monterrey, Mexico earlier this week.

And now, state officials want the Mexican government to charge Miley for desecrating the flag, and punish her with a $1,270 fine and 36 hours in JAIL.

(Here’s video of the spanking.)


Weed Is Legal In Colorado, And That’s A Good Thing For Peyton Manning!

Peyton says business is BOOMING since pot became legal.  He tells “Sports Illustrated”, quote, “There’s some different laws out here in Colorado.  Pizza business is pretty good out here, believe it or not, due to some recent law changes.”

It sounds like that turned out to be a good buy for Peyton . . . and not just a gimmick.  Back in 2012, he said, quote, “It’s a smart investment now and will be long after I’m done playing football.”

There’s an Eight-Year-Old Kid Who Makes $1.3 Million a Year . . . By Reviewing Toys on YouTube

A lot of YouTube celebrities start making hundreds of thousands of dollars by the time they’re 18 or 19.  But here’s an even MORE extreme example of how you can hit it big super early being a YouTuber.

An eight-year-old kid named Evan is the star of a kid-friendly YouTube channel called EvanTubeHD . He and his dad post videos of Evan playing with new toys and reviewing them, which is like a kid’s DREAM.

And from YouTube revenue, merchandizing, and deals with advertisers, they bring in an estimated $1.3 MILLION a year, which goes into investment accounts for Evan and his little sister.

Because of all the money he brings in, plus the amount of views he gets, Evan was ranked number 20 on a list of YouTube’s biggest stars earlier this year.

(You can check out one of his recent reviews for a line of R.C. cars called Air Hogs by clicking here.)

Did Joan Rivers’ Doctor Take a Selfie While She Was Under Anesthesia? 

We’ve already heard that JOAN RIVERS’ doctor may have performed an unauthorized biopsy . . . one that ultimately killed her.  But here’s something we DIDN’T know.

According to CNN, before he did the operation, he TOOK A SELFIE with her while she was under the gas.

Dr. Lawrence Cohen performed the endoscopy.  But when he was done, an ear, nose and throat doctor Joan had brought with her decided that he wanted to do a biopsy.

Not only was Joan’s doctor not licensed to perform a biopsy at the clinic, but Joan never signed a consent form to have one in the first place.

The fallout continues.


Rihanna Wasn’t Happy That CBS Dropped Her Song from “Thursday Night Football”

RIHANNA is NOT happy with CBS for dropping her song from “Thursday Night Football” . . . apparently because she’s a high-profile victim of domestic abuse, and the NFL is in the middle of the RAY RICE scandal.

Rihanna didn’t say anything at the time, but when she heard that the producers wanted to bring it back tomorrow night, she FLIPPED OUT.

She Tweeted, quote, “CBS, you pulled my song last week.  Now you want to slide it back in this Thursday?  No.  Y’all are sad for penalizing me for this . . . the audacity.”

CBS claims that they’ve decided to go in a “different direction,” but Rihanna’s label, Roc Nation, issued a statement saying that they’re the ones who broke it off.


Quick note:  Despite the controversy surrounding the NFL right now, we are obsessed with it on TV.  “Sunday Night Football” was the most-watched show of the week.  The Bears-49ers game attracted 22.2 million viewers.  It was closely followed in the ratings by the Ravens-Steelers “Thursday Night Football” game, which had 20.8 million.


Move Over and Let the Big Dog Eat!

Wanna know what it’s like to live like a big-time record producer?

DIDDY just dropped $40 MILLION on a new mansion in the L.A. area.  It has eight bedrooms, 11 bathrooms and 17,000 square feet of living space . . . with a 35-seat theater, a gym and a wine room.  There’s also a 3,000 square foot guesthouse.

The grounds include a lagoon-style swimming pool with a grotto connected by an underwater swimming tunnel, which sounds pretty sweet.

A Leopard Is Terrorizing People Who Stumble Home Drunk in Northeast India

Here’s a travel advisory in case you have a trip scheduled to northeast India this week.  You probably don’t and that’s good!

Apparently, there’s a LEOPARD on the prowl and terrorizing people there.  The leopard has already attacked THIRTEEN people as they were walking home from bars and restaurants.

Forest rangers say it’s clear he’s got a taste for humans and people who’ve had too much to drink and are stumbling are easier targets.

They believe he used to eat DOGS . . . but there are fewer wild dogs around now, so the leopard has transitioned to humans.

They’ve gone out hunting for him three times but haven’t been able to catch him.


too smartA Drug Dealer Tells a Customer He’s “Too Smart” to Get Caught . . . and the Customer Is an Undercover Cop

There’s nothing as perfect as a Stupid Criminal who THINKS he’s a genius criminal . . . and that’s EXACTLY what we’ve got here.

45-year-old Adalberto Ramiro-diaz of Port St. Lucie, Florida has been running a pretty massive drug dealing operation out of his house.

At one point recently, a customer was over at his house looking at his massive stash of drugs and guns, and asked him how he’d never been caught.  And Adalberto told him he was TOO SMART to get caught.

But the customer he told that to was . . . an undercover cop.

Stupid Criminals!!!!

The cops arrested him last week on a ton of drug and weapons charges.  They also found a fake FBI badge in his house during their search.


A Vet Performed a Life-Saving Operation on a Goldfish

We do a LOT for our pets.  But do FISH count?

Last week, a couple in Melbourne, Australia noticed their pet goldfish George was having trouble breathing.

Now, George is ten years old.  So you’d THINK their first instinct would be to make sure the TOILET was working properly . . . because that’s probably where most people would send him.

Instead, they took him to the VET.  He saw that George had a massive TUMOR on one of his gills.  And I mean it was about the size of a grape.  For a three-ounce goldfish, that’s pretty big.

And he told George’s owners that it would be risky . . . but for $200, he could try to perform a potentially life-saving operation and REMOVE the tumor.  And they went for it.

We’re happy to report that the 45-minute surgery was a complete success.

George is now back home in his tank recovering.

Check out photos from the operation by clicking here.

bank robber-tMRA Bank Robber Is Easily Identified . . . by the Money Falling Out of His Pants

25-year-old Shawn Lee Canfield of Merced, California has some pretty bad bank robbing skills.

Shawn went into a Chase bank at a grocery store and ROBBED it on Saturday.  The teller gave him $2,748 . . . and that’s when Shawn realized he forgot to bring a BAG to the robbery.

So he improvised and shoved the money down his pants just outside the bank.  But that took him a little while . . . and by the time he was done, the cops got there.

As the cops pulled up, money started falling out of Shawn’s pant leg.  Eventually all $2,748 was on the ground . . . and he was arrested for robbery and burglary.

Stupid Criminals!!!

He told the cops he’d stolen the money so he could visit his mother in Colorado.

Instead, the man and his wife called 9-11 and held Bryan at gunpoint until police arrived.

Bryan was arrested and charged with armed residential burglary and violation of probation.

The Golden Arches at a McDonald’s in Oklahoma Fell and Trapped Two People in the Drive-Thru

The giant golden arches sign outside a McDonald’s in Weatherford, Oklahoma FELL on Wednesday . . . and landed on two cars in the drive-thru.

The photo is crazy, and it’s amazing no one was killed, because both cars were partially CRUSHED.  Firefighters say if there had been passengers in the cars, things might’ve been a lot worse.

The drivers in both cars were trapped for about 15 minutes until the fire department could rescue them, and were both taken to the hospital.  Luckily neither had any major injuries.

Oh, and no one’s sure yet what made the sign fall.

A Great Dane Ate 43-and-a-Half Socks

The owners of a three-year-old Great Dane in Portland, Oregon rushed their dog to an emergency animal hospital recently, because he was retching and throwing up all day.

So a vet did exploratory surgery . . . and removed 43-and-a-half SOCKS from his stomach.

It’s not clear if he ate them all in one sitting, or over the course of a few days.  It’s also not clear if they were clean or dirty.  But there’s a photo of them all lined up after the surgery, and they were certainly dirty at THAT point.

The 43-and-a-half socks had to get tossed.  No word on whether or not the other half-sock ever turned up.

Check out the X-ray and the photo by clicking here.


A Guy Did CPR and Saved a Baby’s Life . . . After a Smartphone App Told Him Someone Nearby Needed Help

There’s an app for your phone called PulsePoint.  And if you’ve been trained to do CPR, it alerts you when there’s an emergency nearby.

A mechanic in Spokane, Washington named Jeff Olson was at work recently when he got an alert that someone at a store two blocks away had called 911.  Jeff rushed over to see if he could help.

When he got there, someone outside told him that a one-month-old baby had turned BLUE, and wasn’t breathing.  So he ran inside, administered CPR, and was able to keep the baby alive until an ambulance got there.  The baby’s name is Nolan, and he’s recovering now, and doing okay.

Big Foot Spotted In Mississippi!

There’s new evidence that BIGFOOT is real.  But, he might be smaller than we thought.

Vicksburg, Mississippi, resident PEYTON LASSITER claims he found a footprint and some “mysterious gray hair” near a local playground.

The footprint is only nine-inches long and six-inches wide at the toes. Another man named DAVID CHILDERS says he saw a six-foot-tall “creature” with “grayish-brown” hair at the same playground last winter.

Experts are very interested in the footprints because they suggest fingerprint-like impressions on the skin of the foot. Apparently, only humans and primates are capable of leaving behind such a print.


A Dog Fell Down a 1,000-Foot Cliff, But Survived Eight Days Until a Stranger Found Him

On Sunday, a crew for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution was running a training exercise off the coast of England.

One of the crew spotted a DOG stuck 30 feet above the water near the bottom of a huge cliff.  So they climbed up and rescued it.

They just couldn’t figure out HOW it got there . . . until they posted a photo of it on Facebook.

It turned out to be a nine-year-old springer spaniel named Sprig.  Mark and Susie Sanders lost him while they were hiking in the area, and had been looking for him the whole time.

Somehow he tumbled a THOUSAND FEET down, but he didn’t have a scratch on him.

Then he survived EIGHT DAYS on the side of the cliff by drinking water that dripped down the rocks. Check out photos from the rescue by clicking here.


A Guy Is in Court For Skipping Anger Management . . . and Attacks His Lawyer

34-year-old Kelly John Lange of Sioux Falls, South Dakota was convicted of assault earlier this year, and part of his sentence was going to anger management classes.  However, he’s been skipping them.

Kelly was in court on Tuesday about skipping the anger management classes.  He can’t afford a lawyer, so he had a public defender representing him.

Well, something she did made him angry . . . and since we all know he has no idea how to manage his anger, he ATTACKED her.

She had minor injuries but didn’t need any medical assistance.

He was arrested for assault, and since it’s his third assault in less than five years, this time it’s a felony.

He’s being held in jail without bond.

A Denny’s in New York Is Selling a $300 Grand Slam Breakfast

The very first Denny’s in Manhattan opened over the weekend, and it’s got a $300 Grand Slam breakfast.  Actually it’s called the Grand Cru Slam.

You get two standard Grand Slam breakfasts of eggs, pancakes, sausage, and bacon . . . but it also comes with a bottle of 2004 Dom Perignon Premier Cru champagne.

Denny’s says that’s actually a BARGAIN . . . most restaurants in New York City sell that same bottle for at least $400.  Plus, you know, it doesn’t come with pancakes and sausage and stuff.

Also, the inside does NOT look like a typical Denny’s . . . it looks more like a real restaurant.

Click here for a photo of the breakfast, and a few shots of the inside of the restaurant.


A Woman Texting and Driving Crashes . . . and Impales Her Butt on the Guardrail

It’s clear that no matter how many stories we hear about the dangers of texting and driving, we’re not going to stop.  But, Christina Jahnz of Elizabeth, Colorado dropped her daughter off at school last Wednesday and was running late to a meeting, so she tried to text that she was running late.

While she was texting, she crashed into a guardrail.  Somehow, that guardrail plowed through the front of her car, went through her thigh, and impaled her derriere.

The paramedics had to saw off the guardrail and take her to the hospital with it still stuck inside of her.

She had emergency surgery and amazingly, she survived!

(Click here to see some pictures including one of Elizabeth at the hospital, where you can see the pole and her legs . . . but it’s not graphic.)


A California Park Ranger Was Busted Sleeping in His Patrol Car With an Open Beer Between His Legs

If a park ranger is drinking on the job, who’s going to save hikers who get trapped under rocks and more importantly, who’s going to protect America’s pic-a-nic baskets?

Tyson Young is a California state park ranger.  He was on duty back on August 15th at Humboldt Redwoods State Park in northern California . . . but his head clearly wasn’t in the game.

That’s because a hiker walked past Tyson’s patrol car and saw him SLEEPING inside, with an open can of Keystone Light BEER between his legs.

So the guy took a photo and they posted it on Instagram.  He also called 911 but by the time the cops got there, Tyson had driven away.  So they caught up to him and pulled him over for drunk driving.

A spokeswoman from the California state parks department says Tyson has been placed on administrative leave while they investigate.
