A Woman Was at Work When She Found Out She Won the Lottery, and Immediately Quit

You ALWAYS hear about people who win the lottery and then stay at their jobs . . . so they can keep on being nice, normal people who don’t rock the boat. So THIS is kind of refreshing . . .

50-year-old Julie Leach from southwest Michigan came forward yesterday after hitting the Powerball lottery for over $310 MILLION.

She’s worked at a fiberglass factory for almost 23 years, and says she was having a worse day than usual last week. She was on her lunch break when she checked the lottery numbers.

Then, she walked up to her boss . . . told him she didn’t need a raise anymore . . . and quit right on the spot, which is what everyone always DREAMS of doing, but never does.

When a reporter asked about it, she called it a “nasty, dirty job”, and said she never even considered keeping it.

She’s taking the lump sum, so after taxes she’ll get about 140 million bucks.

Police Save Pet Store Owner Being Killed By A Python

The owner of a northern Kentucky reptile store is recovering after police officers saved him from being killed by a python!

Terry Wilkens was feeding the 125-pound python, when the snake attacked him! The snake curled its 20-foot body around Terry’s neck as he desperately called 9-1-1.

Police arrived on the scene and managed to uncurl the snake from Terry’s neck by grabbing it by the head and unraveling it.

Terry was taken to the hospital where he is expected to make a full recovery. Now police are working with animal control to determine if the python needs to be removed from the shop.


Twelve-Year-Old Girl Sneezes 12,000 Times A Day

And you thought you were bad during allergy season.

12-year-old Katelyn Thornley sneezes 12,000 times a day – that’s 20 times a minute! The sneezing started a few weeks ago, and doctors are baffled by it. It’s so bad that Katelyn can’t go to school, can barely eat, and is in constant pain.

Doctors have ruled-out allergies and viruses as the cause of the nonstop sneezing…and can only say that stress seems to make the situation worse.

Until they figure it out, Katelyn takes Benadryl to help her sleep at night.

Burger King’s Halloween Whopper Is Turning People’s Poop Green

Burger King has been selling a Whopper with a BLACK BUN for years in other countries, and people asked them to bring it to America.

So they finally caved and introduced it as a special Halloween burger this year. Well, maybe we should’ve left it in Asia.

Some people are finding that the Halloween Whopper is turning their poop GREEN. People are complaining on Twitter and even sharing photos! We accidentally looked at one and would strongly advise you do NOT.

The ingredients for the bun include A1 steak sauce and four different food colorings, which may explain the why we’re experiencing this side effect.

Fortunately there’s almost no chance that this poses any real health problems. Once the bun is out of your system you’ll be back to normal.


12 Coworkers Find Out They Hit the Lottery for $46 Million

Twelve people who work for a used car website in Canada pooled their money last month to buy a bunch of lottery tickets, and hit the jackpot for 46 MILLION BUCKS.

And the great part is the guy who bought the tickets kept it a SECRET all weekend. He found out on a Saturday, but didn’t tell any of them until their morning meeting the following Monday, which he showed up to in sandals and a t-shirt.

And there’s a video on YouTube of them going NUTS when they find out. They’ll each get about $3.8 million, but they all say they’re planning to KEEP their jobs for now.


Alaska Airlines Loses Its Own CEO’s Luggage

Alaskan Airlines brags about its baggage delivery guarantee policy.

The airline offers a guarantee pledging that customers will receive their luggage within 20 minutes of reaching their gates and those customers whose bags are not returned in that time frame will be awarded a $25 credit toward a future flight.

How FREAKY is it that the CEO of Alaskan Airlines was flying his own airline to Washington DC and the airline lost his luggage!!! The CEO of the company!!!

They did manage to find the luggage and delivered it to him the next day.

Wasted Away In Margaritaville!

JOE GILLESPIE and his buddies went to a minor league baseball game Charlotte, North Carolina.

Joe told his buddy he was going to get food, because he was a bit tipsy. Joe never came back so his friends assumed he left. So they left.

Joe then wakes up at the bottom of a staircase, grabs his phone and calls his buddy MARK. Mark asks him where his is. Joe thinks he’s still in the stadium. Mark says they are at Hooters, sit tight he’s on his way.

Joe starts to poke around and finds a door labeled mascot dressing room and it’s unlocked. So he dresses up as Homer, the Charlotte Knight’s mascot and heads downtown to bar hop. He hits all the hot clubs and Hooters before going home.

Joe had planned on returning the costume the next day but police found him first. Joe was arrested and charged with breaking and entering and larceny, both felonies.



A Guy Driving With a Bear Avoids a Ticket . . . Because It Was Wearing a Seatbelt

A guy in Yekaterinburg, Russia was driving last week with a small BEAR in his backseat.

People even took photos of it with its head hanging out of the window. The cops pulled the guy over, but he avoided a ticket . . . because he was in accordance with RUSSIAN BEAR LAW. It turns out that in Russia, you can drive with a bear in the car as long as it wears a seat belt. And this bear was, in fact, wearing his.

Apparently it’s common enough in Russia for people to put BEARS in their cars, that they have bear-in-the-car laws regulating it?

It’s not clear where the guy got the bear from or where he was going with it.

A Guy Set a World Record For the Longest Fingernails

78-year-old Shridhar Chillal in Maharashtra, India just set a world record . . . for LONGEST FINGERNAILS.

He’s been growing the nails on his left hand since 1952, when he was 14 years old. The five of them combined are 358.1 inches . . . or an average of about SIX FEET each.

Meanwhile, he cuts the nails on his right hand all the time, so they’re a totally normal length.

A Doctor Punched a Patient in the Stomach for Coming to the ER Three Times in One Night

A doctor in Aomori, Japan was working in the ER back in August, when a guy came in around midnight to complain about pain in his elbow.

So the doctor checked him out, didn’t find anything wrong, and discharged him. But the guy came back at 1:30 A.M. in an ambulance, and this time said he had a pain in his ABDOMEN. So the doctor checked him out AGAIN, didn’t find anything wrong, and sent him home.

At 4:00 A.M. the guy came back in ANOTHER ambulance, and this time the doctor didn’t even wait to HEAR what was supposedly wrong. He just PUNCHED the guy in the stomach.

The hospital investigated and found out the guy had been to the ER 18 times in 2015 without any real problems, so they sided with the DOCTOR.

And the guy isn’t even pressing charges . . . he actually apologized for coming in so much.


A Couple Gave Away Fake TNT as Wedding Favors, and Caused an Airport Evacuation

A couple got married a few weeks ago in Denver and made wedding favors that were FAKE BOMBS.

The bride and groom both had names that started with “T,” so they made “TNT” . . . get it? T-and-T. They took mason jars and filled them with bath salts, then they put red wax seals on top and a fake “fuse” sticking out. And “TNT” was printed on the side.

Unfortunately, when their guests were flying home from Denver, the TSA found the party favors, and the entire airport was EVACUATED for 20 minutes.

The bottles were all confiscated, and you can’t REALLY blame the TSA on this one.

A Robber Was Caught on Camera, and Complained About the Store Circulating His Photo

23-year-old Nicholas Allegretto of Cambridge, England stole a $36 engineering magnet from a hardware recently.

But he didn’t realize they had security cameras rolling the whole time. So when the store checked their tape, they saw Nicholas and started circulating his screenshot online.

Obviously they wanted to see if anyone could identify him, so they could turn him over to the cops. But that wasn’t necessary, because Nicholas went to the police station HIMSELF a week later, to COMPLAIN about the hardware store circulating his photo without his permission.

Stupid Criminals!!!

He said it cost him his job as a roofer. The cops arrested him, and he was convicted of theft on Wednesday.

Two Drug Smugglers Replaced Their Airbag with Cocaine, Then Died in a Car Crash

You have to ask, is this about Stupid Criminals or stupid ways to die??

Drug smugglers are getting more and more creative about where they hide their stuff.

Two smugglers in northern Mexico were trying to sneak drugs into Texas recently, so they removed the passenger’s side AIRBAG, and hid a bunch of cocaine there, which seems like a pretty good hiding place, unless you get into an accident.

About 90 miles from the border, they crashed their car and were both KILLED. Apparently the driver’s side airbag DID deploy, but instead of being cushioned by an airbag, both passengers were hit in the face with 23 two-pound bricks of flying cocaine.

Stupid Criminals!!!

The police found 23 bricks of cocaine, weighing a total of 55 pounds.


Couple Receives A $75 Bill For Not Showing Up To A Wedding When They RSVP’d “Yes”

Whether you are HAVING a wedding…or just attending one, there’s one thing we all know: Weddings can get pretty expensive.

Just ask Jessica Baker from Minnesota. She was sent a bill for $75.90 after she was a no-show at a relative’s wedding….after she RSVP’d “yes.” Jessica says that she and her husband intended to go to the wedding, but their babysitter backed out at the last minute.

Since children were banned from the wedding, Jessica says she had no other option but to stay home. BUT, since Jessica didn’t bother to tell the bride she wouldn’t be coming, the bride sent her a bill for the dinners Jessica and her husband were slated to have.

Etiquette experts say the fine was totally out of line.


A Fan at a Yankees Game Missed Three Foul Balls

If a foul ball comes your way at a baseball game, you try to catch it, because you might not get another chance.

But a guy at a Yankees game on Tuesday had THREE chances . . . and dropped the ball all three times.

First a foul ball bounced off his hands and he lost it. Then another foul ball hit him in the CHEST and bounced back onto the field.

So a ball boy grabbed it and tossed it to him, and it hit him in the FACE. He ended up with the ball that time though.

A Guy Gets Beat Up and Tells the Cops a Hippopotamus Did It

Hopefully the people of Madison, Wisconsin are all on high alert today, because there just might be an angry HIPPO on the loose.

Hide your kids, hide your wife. A 25-year-old guy from Cambria, Wisconsin was in Madison on Friday night and got beat up BADLY. He was knocked unconscious, some of his teeth were broken, and he needed stitches for a cut on his head.

When the police found him, he told them he’d been assaulted by a HIPPOPOTAMUS. Now . . . he WAS pretty intoxicated, and a witness told the cops the guy had been beaten up by a person. But you never know, right?

The cops are looking for whoever beat the guy up . . . man or hippo. The guy was taken to the hospital for treatment.


Screen Shot 2015-09-30 at 5.24.24 AMA Woman Hides Her Crack Pipe From Her Family . . . and Sets the House on Fire

Wow, crack makes people do some truly INSANE stuff.

30-year-old Juliana Broverio of North Palm Beach, Florida sent her mom to pick up her two kids from school on Friday so she could stay home and smoke some crack.

And boy, did she smoke some crack. She was still going at it when her mom and kids got home, but Juliana didn’t want them to see her hitting the pipe. So she threw it in the linen closet, and went to hang out with them.

Unfortunately Juliana didn’t realize that her crack pipe was still hot and the heat from the crack pipe set the linen closet on FIRE. The entire closet went up in flames, and the family had to evacuate.

Fortunately no one was hurt, but the fire caused about $15,000 in damage. And when the firefighters found the crack pipe, Juliana was arrested for arson, possession of drug paraphernalia, and child neglect.  Stupid Criminals!!!

Would you want to eat cheese that spilled out of a truck during an accident on the highway?

And what did people do? They rushed to grab all of the cheese that spilled from the truck! Now, Police in Alabama have issued an urgent warning saying, “Don’t eat the cheese because it has been declared salvaged and not fit for human consumption.

So far, nobody has come forward to return the cheese.


Two Women Steal a TV From Walmart . . . Then Change Clothes and Steal Another One

Two criminals in Connecticut made a bet that their clothes were more memorable than their faces.

And they sure were right. Two women went into a Walmart in Waterford, Connecticut on Saturday and put a 40-inch TV in their cart. They managed to take the security device off of it and walked out with it.

But they didn’t speed away. After they got it in their car, they changed clothes, went back inside . . . and stole ANOTHER TV the exact same way. The security guards clearly didn’t recognize them the second time, because they also managed to walk out with no problem.

The police have surveillance footage of them in both outfits, and they’re trying to track them down.

A Congressman Stole the Pope’s Water Glass, and Let People Dip Their Fingers in It?

People, if we act all creepy like this, the Pope is NEVER going to come back.

Bob Brady is a Congressional Democrat from Pennsylvania, and he’s Catholic. So after POPE FRANCIS spoke to Congress on Thursday, he noticed the Pope had left his WATER GLASS up on the podium. He’d only taken about three sips.

So Brady snuck up there, grabbed it, then took it to his office to take a sip. His wife and two of his staff members also took a sip. Then he invited a few other members of Congress to dip their FINGERS into it.

Not weird at all. Then he put the rest of it in a bottle, and says he’s planning to use it to bless his grandchildren. He says, quote, “How many people do you know that drank out of the same glass as the Pope?”

Apparently this isn’t Brady’s first time pulling a move like this. He also took PRESIDENT OBAMA’S water glass after his inauguration in 2009.

Click here to see a picture of Brady drinking the water.


A Guy at a Gas Station Tried to Kill a Spider With His Lighter . . . and Set the Place on Fire

A guy was filling up his car at a gas station in Center Line, Michigan last week, when he saw a SPIDER.

So he decided to try to kill it by . . . using his LIGHTER. (Duh!) He tried to set the spider on FIRE, but he accidentally set the PUMP on fire instead, and it went up in flames.

He grabbed a fire extinguisher, and managed to put the fire out before it spread. But the pump was totally destroyed. Other than that, there wasn’t any real damage and there were no injuries.

The guy was embarrassed and apologized, and the station isn’t pressing charges. They say their insurance is going to cover the damage.

It’s not clear if the spider survived.


More “Stupid People With Gasoline”

A guy in Australia ran out of gas Saturday night, and had to walk to a gas station.

Bad Luck With A Fake Killer Whale

A fake killer whale was brought in to scare sea lions away from the beaches of Astoria, Oregon, but it didn’t work out too well.

Hordes of sea lions have invaded the small fishing town and are refusing to leave. So, local officials floated a motorized Orca out into the water and blasted whale sounds.

But, instead of scaring off the invaders, the fiberglass whale flipped over and the pilot had to be rescued. No word yet on what Plan B is.


A Guy in Alabama Stole an Entire Lottery Ticket Dispenser – Then Tried to Cash in a Ticket

A guy from Alabama busted down the front door of Big Daddy Liquor Store in Esto, Florida at 1:00 A.M. on Tuesday.

And he stole an entire lottery ticket DISPENSER. It was stocked with about $7,505 in lottery tickets. That might SEEM like a foolproof way to get yourself at least one winning scratcher, right? Nope.

Once the County Sheriff’s Office investigated, they called the Florida Lottery, and all the tickets were voided. Then that same morning, 41-year-old Richard Morgan came in to the SAME STORE, and tried to cash in one of the tickets.

One of the employees called the cops, and they arrested Richard for the burglary.

Stupid Criminals!!!

Then he confessed, and the police found all the stolen tickets back at his place.

School Daze – Is it Morgan Freeman or Nelson Mandela?

Always check your kid’s homework, no matter how old they are.

Two female students doing a project on NELSON MANDELA needed a photo to liven up their presentation, or as they say in social media, “Make it sexy.” Unfortunately, they used a photo of actor MORGAN FREEMAN, who played Mandela in the movie “Invictus.”

The students were embarrassed and a photo of their blooper ended up on Reddit. No word on the grade they got.


Stupid Criminals Rob A Van Owned By A Video Surveillance Company

Actually, these two characters go WAY beyond STUPID.

Two morons, Cornelius Ebner and Henderson Lance, both from England, tried to break into a van owned by a video surveillance company.

Two Prisoners Made a Rope With Bed Sheets . . . But Couldn’t Tie Knots

There are two criminal masterminds in a minimum security prison in Louisville, Kentucky, Matthew Johnson is 29, and Christopher Cornelius is 37.

They’re both doing time on drug charges, but on Monday night, they hatched a daring plan to break out.

First, they somehow made it to the roof of where they’re locked up. Then they tried to climb down four stories, using the old ‘rope-made-out-of-bed-sheets’ routine.

Matthew actually made it a couple floors down before one of the knots tying the bed sheets together came LOOSE. Then he fell 20 feet, hurt his ankle and his back, but he was alive, so he took off.

Christopher punked out at that point, and they busted him on the roof. Unfortunately Matthew didn’t get too far anyway, because of his injuries. A cop found him hiding in a car the next morning, took him in, and now he’s in the hospital.

All because he sucked at tying knots.

A Guy Lit His Own Car on Fire to Stop It From Being Towed

A 40-year-old guy in Manchester, New Hampshire named Shad Badeau saw his car being hooked up to a tow truck over the weekend.

It wasn’t being repossessed or anything, he just parked it illegally. So he tried to stop it from happening by setting his own car on FIRE. The tow truck driver immediately put the car down and unhitched it, so in the short term the strategy worked, but someone also called 911.

By the time firefighters got there, Shad had already put out the fire himself. But the cops showed up too, and arrested him for arson.  Stupid Criminals!!!

No word on what happened to his car, but we’re assuming it’s evidence now, so it probably got towed and impounded anyway.


There Was a Brawl at Costco Over Taking Too Many Food Samples

24-year-old Derrick Gharabighi was at a Costco in Burbank, California on Sunday morning, filling up on free samples of mini Eggo Waffles and Nutella.

Apparently there were only a few left, and Derrick grabbed all of them. So a 78-year-old customer came over and told him not to take so many, because he wanted one too. That’s when Derrick reared back and punched him in the FACE.  (–A 78-year-old man???)

The 78-year-old hasn’t been identified, but he ended up in the hospital with a serious cut above his eye. Derrick was arrested for felony elder abuse, and causing great bodily injury against a person over 70.  Stupid Criminals!!!

He’s facing up to 11 YEARS in prison if he’s convicted. (Over NUTELLA!!)


Bad Luck – Mascot Dies Before The Game

Colorado State University’s mascot died Saturday right before a big game.

Sadly for CSU, the Buffaloes won.

A Woman Jumped Out of a Moving Car Because of a Spider & Left Her 9-Year-Old Behind

35-year-old, Angela Kipp was leaving her house last Friday in Syracuse, Indiana.

While she was backing out of her driveway, she saw a SPIDER on her shoulder, FREAKED OUT, and jumped OUT of her car. She didn’t take the time to put it in park, and if you’re afraid of spiders, you understand why.

But her car kept rolling down the driveway, and her nine-year-old SON was still in the back seat. I don’t care how afraid of spiders you are, that’s not cool.

The kid immediately climbed into the front seat and tried to stop the car. Unfortunately, he hit the gas instead of the brake, the car sped up, backed into the road, and slammed into a SCHOOL BUS that was driving by.

Luckily he only suffered minor injuries, there weren’t any kids on the bus, and the bus driver was okay. But there’s a picture of Angela’s car, and it looks like it was totaled.

A Bar Served a Girl a Drink With Liquid Nitrogen, and She Had to Have Her Stomach Removed

A girl named Gaby Scanlon was celebrating her 18th birthday in Lancaster, England two years ago, that’s when you can drink over there.

She went to a new place called Oscar’s Wine Bar. And since it was her birthday, they gave her a free drink, the Nitro-Jagermeister. It’s basically Jager with some liquid nitrogen on top, to create a cloud of smoke. Sort of like dry ice.

Liquid nitrogen is nasty stuff. They use it to freeze off WARTS, among other things. A health and safety inspector warned them about serving it, and the bar was supposed to make people wait ten seconds before drinking it.

But they told Gaby to drink it BEFORE it evaporated. And she did, so it froze and killed her internal tissue, kind of like getting internal frostbite.

Her stomach had to be removed in emergency surgery and she spent three weeks in the hospital. So if a bartender tries to push a weird, smoky cocktail this Halloween, pass.


Almost 200 Chinese Students Suffered Smoke Inhalation . . . During a Fire Drill?

190 Chinese students were hospitalized this week for smoke inhalation, during a FIRE DRILL. Yes, they added actual smoke.

It happened a couple days ago in central China. It was a combined air raid and fire drill rehearsal, and the school decided to use smoke machines to make it more realistic. 193 of the students were taken to three different hospitals for smoke inhalation when the machines got out of control.

Kids were coughing, vomiting, and getting dizzy, and 139 of them are still in the hospital, mostly 12-year-olds. In the past, schools in China have used actual FIRES as part of their “Fire” drills. So actually it could have been worse.
