The Dog That Fetches Beer!

This is the perfect dog to have during football season.

JOSH ACE, the dog owner, only has to say “I’m parched,” and his Australian cattle dog, BANDIT, runs to the fridge. Bandit opens the refrigerator door, grabs a beer with his teeth, and delivers it straight to Josh’s hands.

 

 

A Mouse Delays a Flight for 5 Hours

Nobody likes it when they find a mouse in their house or business….but when a mouse showed up in the cockpit of a plane about to fly from Norway to New York….it shut down the flight!!!

When the pilots spotted the mouse, they delayed the flight until mechanics could make sure that no cables or wires had been chewed.  Five HOURS later, the plane was clear of mice and passengers were allowed to board their flight.

 

A Neighborhood in Florida May Cancel Halloween . . . Because They’re Overrun With Wild Hogs Addicted to Candy?

There’s a neighborhood in Melbourne, Florida where the homeowners association is strongly considering CANCELING Halloween . . . because the area is overrun by WILD HOGS addicted to CANDY.

The hogs have gotten hooked on human food, and have been terrorizing the neighborhood for weeks.  They’ve destroyed 17 lawns . . . they’ve been pooping on the sidewalk . . . and they don’t show any sign of leaving.

And the neighborhood is having trouble getting rid of them because they’re all massive . . . some weigh up to 350 pounds.  Plus, they’re not really falling for traditional hog traps.

If the hogs aren’t gone, trick-or-treating will be called off . . . because all that candy flowing around could lead to them attacking kids.

A Hungover Guy Asked Domino’s to Bring His Pizza All the Way to His Bedroom . . . and the Delivery Woman Did It

There’s a photo circulating online from a guy named Dave.

Apparently he had a REALLY bad hangover last week, and wanted pizza . . . but he didn’t want to leave his bed.

So he ordered Domino’s online, and in the delivery instructions he wrote, quote, “I’m so hungover in bed.  Let yourself in, turn right, go past the kitchen through the lounge room, turn left, and double doors are my bedroom.  I’m in my undies watching James Bond.  Don’t be alarmed.  Thanks . . . Dave.”

And . . . the Domino’s delivery woman actually DID IT.  We know because Dave posted a screenshot of his order on Domino’s, AND a photo of the delivery woman walking into his room with his pizza.

A Guy Drops a Lit Cigarette Down His Shirt, Jumps Out of His Van . . . and Backs Over His Own Head?

I guess it’s true that cigarettes can kill you a hundred different ways.

Around 6:30 Sunday morning, a guy lit a cigarette before he backed out of his driveway in Aurora, Colorado.

And while he was backing up, the cigarette dropped down the front of his JACKET.  So he panicked and tried to jump out of his van to get the cigarette out of his shirt.

But he forgot to put the van in PARK first.  So the door knocked him over . . . and he accidentally ran himself over.

He’s was in critical condition Sunday night, but has since been upgraded and is expected to make a full recovery.

 

You Can’t Get Ebola From Food!

The Ebola scare has affected business at restaurants.  But it all depends on what kind of food the restaurant serves.

A restaurant outside Minneapolis called Mama Ti’s serves African food.  But since the Ebola scare, the owner says business is down more than 50%!  She’s actually considering serving more “American” cuisine until things calm down.

People are worried they’ll catch EBOLA if they eat there.

Regretful Robber Returns Cash

How about this!?  A robber with a guilty conscious!!   A man robbed a California gas station……only to return a few hours later and return the money.

23-year-old Cyle Warren Abbott went to the gas station demanding cash with a handgun.

He left with a little cash and 2 bottles of beer, but returned 3 hours later to give back most of the money and apologize!!

So, did he get-off because he was sorry?  Nope! He was booked into jail on $50,000 bail.

 

Stupid Criminals!!

Cops say 38-year-old PAUL CARMAN robbed the Huntington National Bank in Ambridge, then fled on foot.

He was fleeing down an alley when his addiction took over.  That’s when Carman stopped an asked a group of construction workers if he could bum a smoke.

That gave cops just enough time to catch up to him. He was sentenced yesterday to 10-years in the slammer.

It’s not his first stint in prison –he robbed the same bank back in 2008.

 

Ocean-Front Home Gets Built On Wrong Lot

A brand-new 5,000-square-foot-home in a gated Florida community has a lovely view of the ocean—and of the vacant lot next door where the home was supposed to have been built.

Yes, a builder put up the $680,000, 5-bedroom home on the wrong lot in Flagler County.

The problem apparently originated with some misplaced flag stakes in the original survey, and nobody caught the mistake until the home was finished.

The company is trying to work out a deal between the Missouri couple who paid to have the house built on their still-vacant lot and the owners of the lot with the accidental home, but nothing has yet been worked out.

Creepy, Huge Spiders!

A Harvard scientist discovered a spider the size of a dog.

Entomologist PIOTR NASRECKI was exploring a South American rainforest when he came across the this giant spider.

At first, he thought it was a large rat.  But, it turned out to be a South American Goliath Birdeater –the largest spider in the world.  It’s leg span is the size of a child’s forearm.  And, it has two-inch fangs full of poisonous venom.

Nasrecki’s blog has gone viral since he posted pictures of the giant creepy crawly.

 

1-bNqA Guy Accidentally Texted His Probation Officer for Pot

If anyone’s ever texted you by mistake, it’s usually not a big deal.  You just text back, “WHAT?”  Then they text, “Sorry, that was for someone else.”  But THIS wasn’t that simple.

A guy in Albany, Georgia named Alvin Cross Jr. was trying to text his drug dealer recently, and sent him a message that said, “[Do] you have some WEED?”

The problem was, he didn’t text it to his drug dealer . . . he accidentally texted his PROBATION OFFICER.  So the probation officer called the cops, who raided Alvin’s home and found cocaine.

On Monday, he pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine, and a judge sentenced him to a year in prison for it.  He also got another year for violating his probation.

 

A Guy Who Walks to Work Keeps Getting Stopped by Police, Because He Looks Like the Pennsylvania Cop-Killer . . . So the Internet Is Buying Him a Car

Police are still looking for Eric Frein, the guy accused of killing a cop in Blooming Grove, Pennsylvania last month.

And they keep trying to arrest a guy who looks like him named James Tully, because he lives 20 miles from where the shooting happened, he doesn’t have a car, and he walks five miles each way to work every day.

James has been stopped DOZENS of times, including seven times in ONE DAY.  And last Friday, they pinned him to the ground at GUNPOINT.

After his story hit the news this week, someone created a page on GoFundMe.com . . . to raise money and buy him a NEW CAR, so he doesn’t have to walk to work anymore.

As of last night, people had already donated over $13,000.

(Check out side-by-side photos of them by clicking here.  James is on the left.)

A Woman Got Over a Bad Break-Up by Sitting at KFC for a Week, Eating Chicken

A 26-year-old woman in China named Tan Shen recently got over a bad break-up . . . by sitting at Kentucky Fried Chicken, stuffing her face with chicken for a WEEK STRAIGHT.

The KFC was open 24 hours.  And the employees didn’t even realize she’d been there until about three days into it.  But she wasn’t bothering anyone.  She’d just been sitting at a table, looking sad, and eating MASSIVE quantities of chicken.

She says she couldn’t go to her apartment, because it was filled with stuff that reminded her of her ex.

It doesn’t sound like she did this for attention either, because as soon as reporters started showing up to interview her, she left.

Check out photos of her sitting at KFC by clicking here.

 

A Guy Avoids Going to Court for Two Years . . . By Pretending to Be Paralyzed

Two years ago, a 47-year-old Alan Knight of Whales was accused of stealing $67,000 from a neighbor with Alzheimer’s.

But when the cops tried to investigate, Alan checked into a hospital claiming he was a quadriplegic.  This delayed things until they found out he’s actually NOT PARALYZED.

Recently, Alan went to his local supermarket and the cops used the information from his loyalty card to see what time he was there.  Then they checked the security footage, which showed him WALKING into the store.

At that point, Alan was immediately put on trial.  But he didn’t know about the video yet.  So on Tuesday, he showed up . . . in a NECK BRACE, with his wife pushing him in a WHEELCHAIR.

After they showed the supermarket video in court, he dropped the act, and decided to plead guilty to 19 counts of forgery, fraud, and theft.

He’ll be sentenced in about two weeks.

The Wife of a Kansas City Royal Gave a Waiter a World Series Ticket as a Tip

Before Game One of the World Series on Tuesday, the wife of Royals pitcher Wade Davis was at a restaurant in Kansas City.

And instead of tipping her waiter . . . she asked if he’d rather have a free TICKET to that night’s game.  So he said OF COURSE, and his manager gave him the rest of the night off so he could go.

According to the website SeatGeek, the average World Series ticket is going for $950.  And really GOOD seats have been going for as much as SIX GRAND.

Unfortunately for Ryan, the Royals ended up losing Game One.  But he talked to a reporter at the game, and it sounded like he was having a pretty good time anyway.

Screen Shot 2014-10-22 at 5.07.25 AMA Drunk Guy Was Busted for Giving a Cop a Double Wet Willy

A cop was standing on the street, talking to a bus driver near a bar in Mankato, Minnesota, just outside Minneapolis.

The bar down the street had just closed, so 24-year-old Riley Swearingen, who was intoxicated, decided to get a good laugh with some friends and sneaked up behind the cop . . . and gave him a WET WILLY.

More specifically, Riley went with a DOUBLE wet willy . . . meaning he put a finger in BOTH of the cop’s ears at the same time.

And if the cop wasn’t sure Riley did it, he was a few seconds later . . . when he clearly heard him yell to his friends that he, quote, “just gave [that] cop a WET WILLY!”

Initially, they charged with him “assaulting a police officer with bodily fluids,” which is a FELONY.  But after three days in jail, a judge let him plead guilty to disruptive intoxication instead.  So he ended up paying $77 in court costs.

 

Screen Shot 2014-10-22 at 5.07.56 AMA Guy Shoplifted a Bunch of Stuff from Walmart . . . Because He Didn’t Want to Wait in Line

Never go to Walmart during PEAK shopping hours . . . because apparently it can drive you so nuts, you’ll start breaking the LAW.

A 74-year-old named Clayton Lampe was at a Walmart in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.  And the checkout lines were really long.  So instead of waiting . . . he decided to just STEAL everything.

One of the employees saw him walk out with $300 worth of stuff.

When police got there, Clayton explained that he hates to wait in lines, and THAT’S why he decided to shoplift.  He said he does it ALL THE TIME, and there’s never been a problem before.

He was arrested for shoplifting.

 

A Vet Saved a Cat’s Life by Giving It a Bottle of Vodka

Last Tuesday, Sara in England realized someone had dumped anti-freeze all over her CAT, which

is a big deal, because anti-freeze is extremely TOXIC to cats, and can shut down their kidneys.  So Sara rushed her to a vet, where luckily they knew that all Missy needed was a substantial amount of VODKA.

Apparently the ethanol in vodka neutralizes the poison in the anti-freeze.  So they hooked her up to an I.V. of vodka.  Within a few minutes, Missy was pretty drunk . . . but she also SURVIVED.

Luckily, Missy fully recovered, and she’s back home.

A Woman Tries to Break Into Her Ex’s House, and Gets Stuck in the Chimney

Genoveva Figueroa started dating a guy named Lawrence in Thousand Oaks, California after they met online.

Then after five or six dates, Lawrence broke it off.  But Genoveva wasn’t ready to give up on the relationship yet.

So on Sunday, she tried to BREAK INTO HIS HOUSE . . . by climbing down his CHIMNEY.  And she got STUCK about eight feet down.

Luckily, someone heard her crying around 5:45 in the morning and called 911.  Firefighters had to tear apart the top of the chimney, and lube her up with dish soap to get her out.

It took about FIVE HOURS, and there’s a photo online where she’s on the roof, completely covered in soot.

It’s not clear what Genoveva was planning to do if she HAD made it into the house.  She’s been charged with illegal entry and is due back in court today.

A Stranger Pulled an Old Man From a Burning House . . . Then Vanished

On Saturday, a house caught fire in Fresno, California, and a woman on the sidewalk started screaming that her elderly father was still inside, hooked up to his OXYGEN tank.

So some guy casually walked toward the fire and went inside.  Then about 30 seconds later . . . he came running back out with the dad on his SHOULDER.

And while everyone was checking on the dad . . . the guy who saved him VANISHED, and no one seems to know who he was.

All we know is he looks to be Hispanic, in his 40s or 50s, and was wearing a Dodgers hat.  And a woman got it on video, so there IS a shot of his face.

By the way, the dad was treated for smoke inhalation, then released.

A Woman Tells 911 Her Sister Has Ebola . . . Just So They’ll Show Up Faster

On Thursday, a woman in Columbus, Ohio who hasn’t been identified called 911, and told them her sister had a high fever.

She got annoyed when they transferred her.  So she mentioned a few more KEY details when the next person got on the phone.  Specifically that it was a 107-degree fever . . . her sister had just been to AFRICA . . . and it might be EBOLA.

Which DID get their attention.  The cops immediately went to their house, roped it off with crime-scene tape, and a team of people in HAZMAT suits showed up.

But once they got them to the hospital, they realized the sister DIDN’T have Ebola . . . HADN’T been to Africa . . . and the woman just lied so the ambulance would GET THERE faster.

So far, there’s no word on whether or not she’ll be charged for misusing 911.  But according to police, the whole ordeal was a HUGE drain on resources.

 

Reported Crocodile Turned Out To Be Inflatable Toy

British police received several calls reporting a 3-foot crocodile in a nearby neighborhood garden.  And since crocodiles are a rarity in England, they responded with snare poles, nets, and riot shields while a team of wildlife experts from the local zoo were called-in to assist.

The officers became suspicious when they threw water on the animal and it failed to move.

It turns out that the “animal” wasn’t a vicious crocodile……it was an inflatable TOY crocodile.

Police do not know how the toy ended up in the woman’s garden, but everyone had a good laugh.

 

A Guy Wins $1 Million in the Lottery, and Splits It With His Brother . . . Because They Made a Pact When They Were Kids

Earlier this month, 45-year-old Eric Hale of Bend, Oregon checked the numbers on a Powerball ticket he bought, and realized he’d won a MILLION BUCKS.

But back when he was a kid, Eric promised his brother Quinn that if he ever won the lottery, he’d split it with him.

Obviously they were kids, and I don’t think most people would blame him if he pretended to FORGET about it.  There’s gotta be some kind of statute of limitations on an offer like that.  But instead, Eric immediately called his brother, told him he won . . . and said he was KEEPING his promise.

They got their money this past Thursday, and each took home about $335,000 after taxes.

A Guy Found a Dead Mouse in His McDonald’s Coffee . . . After He Drank the Entire Cup

On Monday, a guy in Fredericton, Canada named Ron Morais bought a cup of coffee at McDonald’s on his way to work.

He drank the coffee, and as far as we know, he enjoyed it.  At least, until he took the lid off to get the last few drops . . . and found a DEAD MOUSE in the bottom of the cup.

If you’re thinking Ron PLANTED the mouse there, it’s possible.  But according to his co-workers, they SAW him drinking from the cup.  Then when he took the lid off, he immediately yelled, “There’s a MOUSE in my coffee!”

Ron says he started feeling kind of sick after that, which is understandable.  And so did his co-workers just from the THOUGHT of it, which is also understandable.  It’s not clear if he’s planning to sue.  McDonald’s is currently investigating.

Chinese Lottery Winner Hides Identity With A Costume

The lottery in China is a lot like the lottery here in America – If you win…you can’t remain anonymous.  You have to pick up your GIANT check in person.

Well, the winner of an $85-million-dollar jackpot carefully read the rules before picking up his winnings….and found a loophole!  There were no rules against wearing a costume.

So, when the unknown man who won the third-largest jackpot in the history of the Chinese lottery went to pick up his check….he wore a full-blown costume of a local mascot.  He even kept the costume on when he did his required interviews with the media.

 

A Guy Wouldn’t Pull Over Because His Wife Was in Labor . . . and It Started a High-Speed Chase

On Tuesday, Rachel Kohnen of Pomeroy, Iowa went into labor, and her husband Ben started driving her to the hospital.

A cop saw them doing 85 in a 55 but he didn’t know Rachel was in labor, so he tried to pull them over.  Which is when Rachel told Ben she didn’t want to give birth in the car . . . screamed at him to KEEP GOING . . . and he DID.

So now they were in a high-speed CHASE and the cops set up SPIKE STRIPS.  Meanwhile, Rachel called 911 to explain.  But they couldn’t understand her because she kept screaming from the contractions.

Then they hit the spike strips, which blew out all four tires and the cops ordered them out of their car at GUNPOINT.

Luckily, they realized Rachel was in labor, and got her to the hospital, where she gave birth about an hour later.  Ben, Rachel, and their new daughter, Hazel, are doing fine.

1-n15A Guy Tries to Get Out of a Drunk Driving Arrest by Bribing a Cop With . . . a Mountain Dew

The cops in Bernalillo County, New Mexico got a call on Monday about a guy who’d smashed his car into a pole.  When they got there, they found Luis Rodriguez-Neri behind the wheel . . . and he was drunk.

Luis refused to take a breathalyzer.  Instead, he offered the cops a sweet bribe.  If they let him go, he would give them . . . a free Mountain Dew.

It’s not clear if he had the Mountain Dew on him or if he was going to bum a ride from the cops to a Quick Stop to buy them a Mountain Dew.

For some reason, the cops turned down that deal.  Luis was charged with aggravated DWI, leaving the scene of an accident . . . and bribery.

A Guy Survives a Grizzly Bear Attack . . . and Getting Shot by a Guy Trying to Save Him

There’s a guy in Canada who got mauled by a grizzly bear this weekend . . . and that was arguably only the SECOND worst thing to happen to him that day.

A 56-year-old guy was out hunting in Fernie, British Columbia on Sunday morning when a grizzly bear ATTACKED HIM.  As he tried to keep the bear from tearing him apart, another hunter saw what was happening and ran over to help.

“Help” is a loose term here, though . . . because when the other hunter tried to shoot the bear, he accidentally shot the GUY.

Somehow, the guy survived both the bear attack AND the human attack . . . and he was airlifted to a hospital where he’s in stable condition.  His injuries aren’t considered life threatening.
