A Guy in New York Found a Dead Rat in His Wrap

With a sandwich, you can basically see what you’re eating, but with wraps and burritos, you’re GAMBLING when you bite in, right?

A guy in New York City LOST that gamble yesterday.

He ordered a wrap for lunch from a restaurant called Chop’t . . . and when he bit into it, he found an ENTIRE DEAD RAT.

On the bright side, at least he didn’t bite in and find half a dead rat in the wrap and half in his mouth, right?

Anyway, his friends and coworkers immediately started tweeting photos of the rat in the wrap.  Chop’t says the location was shut down for a, quote, “deep clean.”

A Woman Finds Out Her House Was a Serial Killer’s Torture Chamber . . . When She Sees It on an A&E Cold Case Documentary

Catrina McGhaw signed a lease for a house in Ferguson, Missouri back in March.  As far as she knew, it was just a nice, normal suburban house outside St. Louis.  NOPE.

Catrina was watching an episode of “Cold Case Files” on A&E last month, and it featured the house SHE was renting.  Turns out a serial killer had tortured and killed at least 12 women inside.

On top of that, Catrina’s landlord is the killer’s MOTHER!!!  Catrina says she never told her about what happened in the house.

Naturally she wanted to get out of the lease, but Sandra wouldn’t let her.  She finally went to the St. Louis Housing Authority, who got Sandra to agree to let Catrina out by the end of this month.

 

A Nine-Year-Old Reported Her Parents’ Marijuana . . . Because She Was Afraid It Was Making Her and Her Dogs Sick

A nine-year-old girl walked into the police station in Barnesville, Minnesota last month on her own . . . and ratted out her PARENTS’ drug operation.

She told the cops her parents were growing and selling marijuana . . . plus they were smoking it themselves.  And she was worried that the smoke was making her and her dogs sick.

The cops raided her house last week to check it out, and she was telling the truth . . . her parents were growing marijuana under the house.  The cops also found some METH there.

Charges haven’t been filed yet . . . the girl is now staying with her grandparents.

Two Women Find Out They Have the Same Boyfriend . . . So They Hang a Banner Over a Highway Announcing He’s Been Dumped

Two women in Newcastle, England just found out that a guy named Steve Frazer was secretly dating BOTH of them.  And instead of getting mad at each other . . . they teamed up AGAINST him.

They made a giant BANNER that read, quote ,”Steve Frazer, you’re dumped by both of your girlfriends.”  And it had a photo of Steve on one side, and a photo of them together on the other.

Then they hung the banner on a bridge over a HIGHWAY yesterday morning, so thousands of people would see it during their commute.

We’re guessing with all the publicity that Steve got the message.

mugshotA Woman Leads Cops on a High Speed Chase, Because She Preferred the Jail in the Next County

Cops in Oklahoma tried to pull over 34-year-old Luz Avilla of Chickasha, Oklahoma for drunk driving earlier this week.  Then she led the cops on a high-speed chase as she raced toward Caddo County, which is the next county over.

When she finally pulled over, she told the cops she’d fled because Caddo County’s jail is NICER than Grady County’s . . . so she wanted to make it into Caddo to get locked up there.

Unfortunately for her, she stopped just a few miles before the county line, so she was arrested and taken to the jail she DIDN’T like.

Stupid Criminals!!!

We don’t know the crimes she committed in the past that allowed her to spend so much time in various local jails.

 

Animal Stories

This sounds like something out a Disney film.

In Ringwood New Jersey, a six-month-old black bear cub had to be rescued when he climbed a tree and got his head stuck in a cookie jar.

An official said, “He was trying to eat what remained in the jar and pulled the jar over his head (then) got spooked and went up into the tree.”

Rescuers from the Department of Environmental Protection climbed up the tree and tranquilized the bear.  They cut the jar off his head and safely lowered him from the tree.

Wet Nose Wednesday – Mocha

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 Mocha.

Mocha2

Mocha and last week’s featured dog, Cocoa are bothers that have been living as outside dogs for the last several years in the hot Memphis summers and recent frigid winters. Their owner decided to surrender them to rescue so they could be adopted by someone who wanted to give them the love and attention they deserve. Mocha is an 8-10 year old Shih Tzu that weighs about 10 pounds. He is heartworm negative, neutered, up to date on shots and just had his teeth cleaned. Mocha is starting to get some gray in his eyes and follows Cocoa in and out of the house so they should be adopted together. He is a very cute, sweet little love bug that get along with children, cats and other dogs. Mocha is kenneled at night to house train him and would do well with a doggie door (not required though). Cocoa and Mocha can’t wait to find their forever home inside their new family’s house so they can soak up all the love and attention they deserve and have missed out on for most of their life.

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

Robert Downey Jr.’s Son Was Arrested for Cocaine

ROBERT DOWNEY JR.’S 20-year-old son Indio was arrested for DRUGS on Sunday.  He got pulled over in West Hollywood around 2:20 P.M., and they found cocaine in his car.

(Check out a photo of Indio by clicking here.)

He was booked into L.A. County prison, and then released yesterday on $10,000 bail.  Indio reportedly has been in and out of rehab for YEARS, according to sources.  So this isn’t out of nowhere.  Obviously it’s a bigger deal considering how serious his DAD’S issues with drugs were.

Robert released a statement saying that, quote, “Unfortunately there’s a genetic component to addiction, and Indio has likely inherited it.”

He also said Indio’s family is standing by him.

One more:

“When you’re not busy objectifying women, making light of rape, and justifying sexual violence, how do you like to relax?”

KFC Accidentally Served a Deep Fried Hand Towel

This is one of the weirder things ever served at a fast food joint.  Even grosser than Arby’s Horsey Sauce.

29-year-old Krystal Henderson and her 7-year-old stepson Oliver went to a KFC in Newcastle, England earlier this month, and bought some chicken nuggets.

And when Oliver went to bite into one, it wasn’t chicken . . . KFC had accidentally deep fried a BLUE HAND TOWEL and served it.

Krystal says, quote, “The blue roll could’ve been used for anything, had someone wiped their hands on it, had it been used to wipe the floor?”

She complained, so KFC apologized and offered her . . . a free meal.

She turned them down and said she’s done with KFC forever.

Don’t Wrestle An Alligator!

A Louisiana man learned his lesson after picking a fight with a live alligator.

GLEN BONIN and a few friends spotted the 11-foot gator on a road in the town of Sulphur.  After downing some alcohol, the men decided to engage the animal.

Bonin says, “(We) took our shirts off, threw it on (the gator’s) face, and we were going to come from behind it and jump on it.”

Unfortunately, the reptile knew something was up and spun around quickly and bit down on Bonin’s hand and tried to rip his arm off.  Somehow, the guy managed to escape the gator’s grip and the men ran off.

Bonin’s hand required medical attention, but he’s hopeful he’ll eventually be able to use it again.  Now, he advises anyone who stumbles across an alligator to “leave it to the professionals.”

 

A Soccer Fan Fell Through a Second-Story Window When the U.S. Gave Up That Last-Minute Goal

It was pretty heartbreaking when the U.S. gave up that last-minute tying goal to Portugal on Sunday.  But for one guy, it was almost BONE-breaking.

Eric Corey is president of the Miami chapter of a soccer fan club called the American Outlaws.  So he’s a SUPER-FAN, and was watching the game at a bar in Miami.

Anyway, right before the goal, Eric was leading the whole bar in a chant.  Then when Portugal scored, he flipped out . . . and fell backward through a second story WINDOW.

There are a bunch of photos of him being rescued.  Luckily, he landed on an awning, and wasn’t seriously hurt.

Guy Sues Airline That Flew Him To Grenada, Not Granada

You say Grenada, I say Granada!

Edward Gamson, a Florida dentist, wanted to travel to Granada, Spain.  But where he ended up makes this a Freak File!!!

A little geography lesson: “Granada, Spain is a city founded in the 11th century, famous for its Moorish history and architecture; while Grenada is a Caribbean island off the coast of Venezuela with beautiful beaches and a big producer of spices like nutmeg and cinnamon.”

The dentist didn’t notice anything amiss until the flight tracker on his plane out of London indicated that the aircraft was headed west—on a 9-hour flight, not the 2-hour jaunt to Spain he wanted.

Yes!  He ended up in Grenada courtesy of British Airways!!!

There’s salt in the wound because the airline refused to refund the $4,500 first-class ticket!

Now Edward is suing the airline for $34,000.
