Garfield and his brother Felix are up for adoption. Their Mom went through a divorce and did not have the money for the pet deposit so they are left homeless. Garfield is seven (7) years old, litter box trained and declawed. He is very sweet and gets along with dogs and his cat brother Felix but does not get along with other cats. Garfield would love a home to call his own again with or without his brother Felix.

Waffle House Wouldn’t Let a Waitress Have a $1,000 Tip . . . So the Customer Gave It to Her Directly

26-year-old Shaina Brown is a waitress who works the overnight shift at a Waffle House in Raleigh, North Carolina.  And last month, she had the moment that every server dreams of.

She was working on Mother’s Day when a guy at one of her tables said, quote, “I’m going to bless you tonight.”  Then he gave her a $1,000 tip . . . told her she had a “good spirit.”

Obviously Shaina was ecstatic . . . she’s a single mother with three kids who works two jobs.  But when it was time to cash out, Waffle House wouldn’t let her have the money.  Their policy when a customer leaves a huge tip on a credit card is to automatically REFUND it.

They’re afraid to pay it out in cash because the customer might challenge the charge later on.  Fortunately for her, the “Charlotte Observer” tracked down the guy who left the tip, and he got in touch with Shaina and sent her the tip directly.  He said he wanted to remain anonymous.

A Woman Hit Her Boyfriend With a Shotgun Because He Said Bad Stuff About Her in His Sleep

If you’ve ever been around someone who talks in their sleep, you know it doesn’t offer much of a window into their subconscious . . . it’s mostly a bunch of babbling nonsense.  Not this time.

24-year-old Sara Ann Bade lives with her boyfriend in Willow Creek, Montana.  They were in bed around 2:00 A.M. on Monday when he started talking in his sleep.

And according to her, he was saying BAD STUFF about her.  So she woke him up and started arguing with him.

Then she grabbed her SHOTGUN and started HITTING him with it.  When he got in his car to get out of there, she fired into his front tire to keep him from leaving.

She was arrested and charged with felony assault with a weapon.

Is She Asleep. . . . Or Dead?

Police in Michigan say a guy refused to call off his cross-country road trip –even after he found his girlfriend dead in the car.

RAY TOMLINSON says he believed the 31-year-old woman had just fallen asleep while they were driving across Oklahoma. But, his 62-year-old mother –who was also along for the ride– eventually realized the girl was dead.

After making the grisly discovery, Tomlinson and his mom decided to keep driving anyway, all the way home to Michigan.  Tomlinson claims he took the body back to Michigan because he “cared too much for her” and didn’t want to leave her in a random hospital.

Police don’t suspect foul play.  But, they are still investigating the cause of death.

 

Drunk Driver Pretends Not To Speak English To Get Out Of Arrest

A drunk driver in North Dakota pretended not to speak English after being pulled over.

34-year-old Adam Dominguez said, “No Habla” to police after he was caught speeding.

But, the officer had an ace up his sleeve.  He was fluent in Spanish!!  So, he repeated the question again…this time in Spanish.

At that point, Adam knew he was in trouble.

Police took him into custody after noticing an open bottle of vodka in his car.

 

A Guy Smuggled 40 Bags of Heroin in His Belly Button

Randall Streeter of Greenville, North Carolina might have the world’s deepest belly button.

He was pulled over by a drug task force on May 29th, and when they searched him, they found 40 BAGS of heroin, crack cocaine, and Percocet pills . . . hidden in his BELLY BUTTON.

Now, they weren’t huge bags of heroin, but still.  How many small bags of heroin could YOU fit in your belly button?  Maybe three or four?

As you might imagine, Randall is a man of rather generous proportions . . . he’s 5-foot-5, 315 pounds.  That probably contributed to his haul . . . we assume there was some overflow in his belly button that spilled out into his primary belly roll.

He’s facing several heroin trafficking charges and is locked up with a $1 million bond.

Broken Hearts and Broken Marriages

MELANIE GRIFFITH filed for divorce from ANTONIO BANDERAS on Friday, after 18 years together.

Tracy Morgan Is in Critical Condition After His Limo Bus Got Hit by a Walmart Truck 

TRACY MORGAN is in intensive care, after his limo bus was hit by a Walmart truck on the New Jersey Turnpike at about 1:00 A.M. Saturday morning.  He had performed at a casino in Delaware earlier that night.

The accident also involved a second tractor-trailer, an SUV and two cars.  One person was killed, and Tracy is one of four people who were badly hurt.

Yesterday, Tracy’s rep said that Tracy was still in critical condition . . . but added that he was, quote, “more responsive today.”  He also said Tracy had a number of injuries including a broken leg, a broken femur, and several broken ribs.

He’s expected to be hospitalized for several weeks.

Someone Broke Into Sandra Bullock’s House While She Was Home 

SANDRA BULLOCK’s house was broken into while she was in the house!

A 39-year-old man entered Sandra’s house early Sunday morning.  As far as we know, she didn’t confront the guy.  Police were called . . . they arrived at the house at about 6:30 A.M. and arrested him.

There’s no word what he was doing there, but my guess is he was NOT attempting to steal any “Speed 2″ memorabilia.

Wet Nose Wednesday: Alexis

Every Wednesday at 8:40, Guardian Angel Pet Rescue joins the Mike and Mandy show to showcase a special animal that needs a good home.

This week’s featured pet is Alexis.

Alexis

Alexis is about five (5) years old and weighs about sixty (60) pounds. Our best guess is a Flat-Coat Retriever or Border Collie mix. Alexis is in dire need of a foster or forever home as she has been sitting in boarding for almost three weeks. Alexis is a great dog but her crime is being scared of storms. Her owners of the last five years knew that but left her outside in the horrible storms we had a few weeks ago and she scratched their custom wooden door to get their attention and out of the torential storms and had to leave that day. :( Alexis is house and crate trained, gets along well with cats and other dogs and is ready to find her forever home!

Someone Returned a $46 Million Winning Lotto Ticket to the Rightful Owners

Hakeem and Abiola Nosiru are originally from Nigeria, but they’ve lived outside Toronto for the past 17 years, and they’ve been married for 29.

Back in January, they hit the Canadian lottery for 50 MILLION BUCKS!

Hakeem gave the winning ticket to his wife and she put in her purse, but somehow she lost the ticket!  They turned their house upside down and went through their trash, but didn’t find it.  And eventually they had to face the fact that it was probably gone for good.

Luckily, Hakeem had already signed the ticket and filled in his address, and TWO MONTHS after they lost it, someone from their church showed up and gave it BACK to them.  On April Fools’ Day of all days.

They got their big novelty check on Monday.

Check out their photo by clicking here. 

 

Pet Patrol

After hearing this story, you might want to hide your car keys from the pets.

ROSIE, a 12-week-old-puppy German shepherd, had just finished walking with her owner when the pair headed back to the car.

Owner JOHN COSTELLO says, “The dog jumped in and hit the gear shift and the car jerked and she fell on top of the gas pedal.”

The vehicle lurched forward, straight into a pond, and started sinking.  Costello and the pup swam to safety but the car was a total loss.

 

A Burglar Apologizes To His Victim On His Way To Jail!

Officers in Boynton Beach, Florida say CLEVELAND SMITH –also known as LITTLE D –stormed the home of CHRIS BATES along with two accomplices.

Cops say the intruders beat Bates with a pistol. The victim was hurt pretty bad in the attack, requiring 11 staples in his head.

On his way to the slammer, Smith reportedly phoned the victim to explain that he only participated in the attack because the other two men threatened him.

Smith told the victim, “listen listen, listen, listen, bro I didn’t mean to do that, the guys were going to kill me, they had a gun to my back”.

It’s unclear if Bates accepted his apology.

A Robber Is Busted When He Sends His Victim a Facebook Friend Request the Next Day

Is this guy really this stupid???

A woman in Bremerton, Washington was waiting for a ferry on Tuesday, when a guy hit her in the back of the head, stole her iPod and her purse, and took off.  She didn’t get a great look at him, but she did notice a tattoo of a triangle on his neck.

And the next day, she got a Facebook friend request . . . from a 28-year-old guy named Riley Allen Mullins with a tattoo of a triangle on his neck.

That’s right:  The guy who robbed her looked at her license in the purse, got her name, and decided to FRIEND REQUEST her.

So she called the cops, and they arrested Riley for second-degree robbery.

A Guy Dropped His Phone at a Safari Park . . . and an Elephant Took a Selfie

23-year-old Scott Brierley was driving through a safari park in Worcestershire, England, and accidentally dropped his cell phone out of the car while he was trying to take a selfie with some elephants.

Park officials told him to stay inside the car, but they were eventually able to get the phone back and return it to Scott.  And when he went through his photos later on, he found one of the ELEPHANTS had taken a SELFIE on it.  Seriously.

It makes sense . . . Scott was taking photos when he dropped it, the camera app was probably still open, and an ELEPHANT touched the screen with its trunk.  Apparently it wandered over thinking the phone might be food.

Click here to see the elephant’s selfie, plus one Scott took with the elephant in the background earlier.

 

A Guy Robs a Dunkin’ Donuts, and Employees Are Able to Identify Him . . . Because He Works There

On May 18th, a guy wearing a mask robbed a Dunkin’ Donuts at knifepoint in Louisville, Kentucky.  And because of the mask, the employees weren’t able to give much of a description to police.

But then on Saturday, the place got held up again by the SAME GUY.  And for some reason he skipped the whole disguise thing this time.

This time, all of the employees were able to I.D. him because he WORKED THERE, and was robbing his own Dunkin’ Donuts store.

Stupid Criminals!!!

Police arrested him on Sunday.  He’s charged with two counts of first-degree robbery, and also had an outstanding warrant.

 

The Willis Tower ‘Ledge’ Cracks Beneath Customer’s Feet

Alejandro Gariibay and his family members were taking photos on The Ledge, a glass observation deck on the 103rd floor of the Willis Tower, A.K.A. the Sears Tower in Chicago, when they first heard the cracking noise.

The group quickly stepped off and notified a Willis Tower employee who asked them to leave once he realized they were taking photographs of the cracking glass.

According to a spokesperson for Willis Tower, the family was never in any danger. The cracking noise was the protective coating that covers the glass on The Ledge, and did not affect the structural integrity of the enclosure.

Here’s a picture of the ledge.

He also says that after the ride, they stopped at a pub for a pint of Guinness and left a FOUR-FIGURE TIP.

Honeymoons can be fun and exciting, but maybe Kim and Kanye have a little too much time on their hands because yesterday afternoon, they were spotted going to the movies twice!

They’re staying at a place called Castle Olivier, in County Limerick . . . which costs $34,000 for a week-long stay.  That averages out to $4,855 a day.

Wet Nose Wednesday: Pepper

Every Wednesday at 8:40, Guardian Angel Pet Rescue joins the Mike and Mandy show to showcase a special animal that needs a good home.

This week’s featured pet is Pepper.

Pepper

Pepper is a really good girl and very loving that has had a rotten life so far! Pepper was abandoned by her previous owners when they moved away and left her behind. Per a neighbor; Pepper’s previous owners were abusive to her and even put a rubber band on her tail until it fell off. Pepper is an older dog; she is between six and eight years old so she has grown out of the puppy stage. She doesn’t chew anything up and is house and crate trained. Pepper has been in foster for a few years now and can’t wait to find a family to call her own! She is a lab mix (with no tail now) that weighs around fifty pounds; she is a little on the heavy side at the moment but loves to play ball and could burn off some of that extra weight playing. Pepper walks great on a leash and loves kids; she would be a great addition to any family!

There’s a New Record For the Most Expensive Starbucks Drink Ever . . . $54.75

I feel like Starbucks is expensive enough without people figuring out ways to make it MORE expensive . . . but here ya go.

A guy named Andrew Chifari in Dallas, Texas just broke the record for the most expensive Starbucks drink.

He managed to get a single drink that cost $54.75 . . . and he did it without a ton of gimmicks.  He just ordered a regular vanilla bean frappuccino . . . and added 60 extra shots of espresso.

Andrew’s drink wound up filling up a 128-ounce glass . . . that’s a full gallon.

And the best part is . . . he got it for free.  He’s a gold member of the Starbucks rewards program, which means he gets a free drink after he buys 12.

Click here to see a picture of Andrew’s receipt and his drink.

 

Is That An Ambulance Or Pizza Hut?

A South Carolina emergency responder is accused of using emergency lights to deliver pizzas faster.

THOMAS REID is a probationary member of the Rock Hill Rescue Squad, a volunteer group that helps with water and road rescue operations.

Local police say Reid attached emergency lights to his own car while delivering for Pizza Hut. If Reid is found guilty, he’ll face a 30-day suspension from the squad.

It’s unclear if he also faces criminal charges, but do you want to give him the Stupid Criminals anyway???

It’s also unclear if he received any large tips for delivering the pizzas on time!!!

 

Mass Murderer Lassoed By A Cowboy!

The country is still reeling over that mass murder story that came out of Santa Barbara, California over the Memorial Day weekend where 6 people were killed along with a slew of injuries.

And we have a similar story with a much happier ending.  A man in Georgia opened fire at a rodeo on Sunday, injuring three people.

This man was definitely on the rampage and was aiming at more victims and could have caused a lot more harm, even death, but he was stopped when one of the cowboys grabbed his rope and LASSOED the shooter!!!
