Who’s Fatter, Americans Or The British???

Americans might be some of the most overweight people in the world, but judging by this story, England seems determined to catch up.

The Bear Grills cafe in Congleton, England, is dishing up a fat-laden breakfast that weighs in at 8-thousand calories.

“The Hibernator” weighs seven pounds and contains four times the daily recommended calories for a man.  It consists of four fried eggs, a cheesy four-egg omelet, four bacon strips, eight sausages, four waffles, four hash browns, four slices of toast, four slices of ‘fried bread’, four slabs of black pudding, two scoops of beans, French fries, and a hearty milkshake!

Cafe owner MARK WINDER says, so far, none of his customers have been able to eat the entire breakfast.  He adds, “It’s called ‘The Hibernator’ because if anyone completes it, they’ll have to sleep for a year.”


A Suspect Is Caught When Police Smell His Overpowering Cologne

A 35-year-old man in Oregon was pulled over on Sunday morning, and the cops found drugs in his car, so the perp took off running and hid behind a bush.

Unfortunately, before leaving the house earlier that day, our crook went overboard on his COLOGNE, and the cops were able to smell him as he hid from them.

He was sniffed out and arrested!!!

Stupid Criminals!!!

Cops report it was a distinct smell of Axe body spray.  If you must know!


Can Someone Run a Marathon In Less Than 2 Hours?

Gotta love DENNIS KIMETTO.  He set a new world record for a marathon over the weekend.

Dennis, who’s a native of Kenya, ran the 26.2 miles in 2:02:57.  That’s less than two hours and three minutes, or an average of around 4 minutes and 41 seconds per mile. Yikes!

Kevin, who used to work at a farm in Kenya, is 30 years old and basically just began running two years ago!  Since then, he’s set records at the Tokyo and Berlin marathons, and was the favorite at this year’s Boston marathon, but dropped out due to a hamstring injury.

There are some people who believe he could break the two hour mark if he keeps at it.

Don’t Mess With My Bingo Money!

52-year-old MARGARET THOMAS of Jefferson City, Missouri, was driving two other women home after the three of them had just played bingo.  Thomas was apparently unhappy with how $200-dollars in winnings was being split, so she pulled the car to the side of the road and ordered her two bingo passengers out of the car.

Then she drove off, leaving the two of them on the side of the road.  There is no word on how the stranded bingo players got home.


That Ain’t Drugs, It’s SpaghettiO’s!

Police arrested 23-year old ASHLEY GABRIELLE HUFF after they allegedly found a spoon covered with suspicious residue inside her vehicle.

Huff insisted she wasn’t using drugs, but cops arrested her anyway.  After sitting behind bars for a month awaiting trial, the lab results finally came back. Officials confirmed it wasn’t drug residue all over the spoon, it was dried up SpaghettiOs.

Huff says she may pursue legal action against police and prosecutors.


Three Real-Life Wedding Crashers Are Wanted For Robbery

The movie “Wedding Crashers” made crashing weddings look AWESOME.

But crashing a wedding in REAL life is technically ILLEGAL . . . it counts as robbery when you go eat someone’s food, and drink their drinks without an invitation.

Three underage guys in Ocean Township, New Jersey crashed a wedding this weekend at a banquet hall.  They dressed up in suits, mingled with the guests, and ate and drank to their hearts content.

But eventually someone figured out they were crashing.  The banquet hall manager called the cops, but by the time they got there, the wedding crashers took off!

Now all three of them are wanted for robbery, and while the police know who they are, they haven’t tracked them down yet.

 A McDonald’s Drive Thru Won’t Serve a Guy on Foot . . . So He Carjacks a Woman

Ever tried WALKING through the McDonald’s drive thru?  They seem to have a pretty strict policy against serving people unless they’re in cars.

That’s what happened to 25-year-old Erik Aguilar of Oklahoma City on Tuesday.  He tried to walk through a McDonald’s drive thru around midnight, but they wouldn’t serve him.

So . . . he walked up to the car behind him and CARJACKED the woman inside.  The woman fought with him, but he eventually got her out of the car.

That fight must’ve killed his appetite because even though he was totally eligible for some food now that he was in a car, he instead sped off.

Unfortunately, at least for the Stupid Criminals, he quickly crashed the car.  Police found him right by the crash and arrested him.


Banks Don’t Give Away Money!

This goes to prove that if something is not yours you don’t take it, even if it lands in your lap, or in this case, in your bank account.

A bank in New Zealand accidentally transferred $142,000 into a 32-year-old guy’s account, so did he notify the bank to inform them of the error?  NO!!!

Naturally he went on a GAMBLING spree.  He lost $106,000 of it in one week . . . but now the bank wants the money back, and he’s been indicted for theft.


Man Hits Jackpot Just Before Arrest, Pays Fine In Cash

A gambler in Germany has been saved from prison by a one-armed bandit.

Two police officers were carrying out routine checks at a casino in Bochum late last week when they discovered that a man playing a slot machine faced an arrest warrant.

His warrant required that he either pay a $910 fine or go to prison for 71 days.

But just as officers informed the man that he faced arrest, the slot machine started to flash and ding…..and he won a $1,200 jackpot!

He won $1,270 . . . paid his $910 fine in cash on the spot . . . and walked away a free man with $360 in winnings left over.

Introducing The “Human Flesh” Burger!!!

A pair of British chefs say they’ve created a “human flesh” burger in honor of the TV series, ‘Walking Dead’.

It contains pork, veal, chicken livers, and bone marrow. The Walking Dead Burgers will be available to sample at the end of the month at the Terminus Tavern in East London, which hasn’t opened its doors yet.


Animal Stories

A baby cow in China was born with six fully-formed legs.

Owner ZHANG GONGXUN says four of the legs are normal, but the two extra legs are growing from the calf’s neck.  The neck-legs don’t move at all, but the calf doesn’t seem bothered by them.

Farmer Zhang says he’s raised many cows but never seen anything like this.  He adds, “I get crowds of people here every day and all kinds of camera crews from TV stations.”

Several animal parks have asked to buy the baby cow.  Zhang says he’s considering the offers.

Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’” Helps Four Guys Survive a Shipwreck

Three men and a 10-year-old boy were fishing off the coast of Hawaii last week, when a massive WAVE hit their boat.  And it was so big, the boat BROKE and capsized . . . and the four of them hung on for dear life.

One of the guys had suffered a broken leg in the accident, and was in massive pain every time a wave hit his leg.  Plus, it was dark outside and no one could see them, so they started wondering if they’d die out there.

And then, after four hours, the kid told everyone to listen.  There was a party at the harbor back on shore, and the guys could hear the music they were playing . . . “Don’t Stop Believin’” by JOURNEY.

They took that as a sign, and decided to make a move back toward the shore.  And they MADE IT! The people from the party ran out to help them and they are all expected to be fine.

4.  Then at 5:00 P.M., he was driving a DUMP TRUCK he owns and crashed it into a tree.  That got him his fourth DUI.

Around 11:50 P.M. last Tuesday, 25-year-old Thomas McGowan of Wichita Falls, Texas broke into a trailer where a guy named Jimmy Morgan Jr. lives.

And it just so happens Jimmy is a huge “Game of Thrones” fan.  He even lives the “Game of Thrones” lifestyle.

Which means . . . he has plenty of medieval weapons in his home, including a SPEAR he keeps by his bed.  So winter came EARLY for Thomas.  That’s a “Game of Thrones” reference, Cletus.

Stupid Criminals!!!

A Michigan man has been sentenced for throwing a football over a fence into a prison.

But, 22-year-old CHRISTEN MOORE didn’t just toss an ordinary pigskin into the Correctional Facility.

Prosecutors say the ball was stuffed with drugs and cellphones.  Embarrassingly, the football never even made it all the way into the prison yard because Moore’s throw was so weak.

Moore admitted in court that his actions were “immature” and he apologized for attempting to deliver heroin, marijuana, and three phones to prisoners.

He’s now headed to the slammer for a minimum of 17-months.

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.

A Cat Jumped From the 17th Floor and Survived

On Sunday, Joel Isfeld of Vancouver noticed his eight-month-old cat, Cleo, had gotten out onto his balcony.  Before he could grab her, Cleo JUMPED.  Unfortunately, Joel lives on the 17TH FLOOR of his apartment building.  Obviously Joel assumed the worst, but when he ran downstairs he couldn’t find her body.

Then around 10:00 P.M. the next night, Joel got a call from the security guard, who told him someone had found Cleo . . . ALIVE.  She was hiding in a courtyard on the ninth floor, which is weird, because the courtyard isn’t even below Joel’s apartment.

Meaning Cleo fell at least EIGHT STORIES, and survived.  Or she fell farther than that, and somehow climbed back up, then made it to the courtyard.  Whatever happened, the only injury she had was a scratch on her face.

Click here to see a picture of Cleo and Joel.
