Here's some recent police stories from this year's holiday season:

 

 

David Allen Rodgers, 42, was arrested Dec. 3 for driving while intoxicated — at the wheel of a float during the annual Christmas parade in Anderson, S.C. According to witnesses, Rodgers sped down Main Street in the Steppin' Out Dance Studio float with 19 people aboard, ran a red light and led police on a 3-mile chase.

Police said that when Rodgers finally stopped, they found an open container of alcohol in his truck. "I made a very bad judgment on my part," Rodgers said at a court hearing.

In Ohio's Hamilton County, a pair of 18-year-olds were arrested for using screwdrivers to stab an inflatable 12-foot-tall Frosty the Snowman. "Why me?" asked Frosty's owner, Matt Williquette. "And why Frosty?"

 

 

An Oklahoma woman was arrested after she visited the Delaware County Jail with a Christmas card for her incarcerated boyfriend. Police said the card held marijuana, leading to Dawn Smith's arrest.

Happy Holidays? :huh:

Don't try this at home:

 

 

Over a thousand Turks spent the first day of the Muslim feast of Eid al-Adha in emergency wards on Sunday after stabbing themselves or suffering other injuries while sacrificing startled animals.

 

At least 1,413 people -- referred to as "amateur butchers" by the Turkish media -- were treated at hospitals across the country, most suffering cuts to their hands and legs, the Anatolia news agency reported.

 

. . .

 

Three other people suffered heart attacks and died while trying to restrain animals, CNN-Turk television reported.

And then there's this one: City Settles Flour-Filled Condom Lawsuit.

 

A woman who was arrested and jailed for three weeks on drug charges for what turned out to be flour-filled condoms has settled a lawsuit against the city for $180,000. Janet H. Lee was a freshman at Bryn Mawr College in 2003 when she tried to take three condoms filled with flour in her carry-on bag on a flight to Los Angeles. Airport screeners found the condoms, and authorities said initial tests showed they contained drugs. [...]The flour-filled condoms were a phallic toy that freshmen at the women’s college would squeeze to deal with exam stress. Lee said she thought the toys were funny, so she packed them to show to friends at home.

Police in England still have no clues leading to the arrest of the pub urinal thief: Police hunt pub urinal thief.

 

The suspect walked into the Royal Oak pub in Southampton, on the English south coast, ordered half a pint of beer and then made several visits to the men's toilet.

There he carefully removed a white urinal from the wall, stuffed it into a rucksack and was captured on closed circuit television walking out with the bulging sack on his back.

And we mustn't overlook this one which happened about three years back, but the sentence was handed down a couple of weeks ago: Woman Sentenced to Prison for Raping a Sleeping Man.

 

According to court documents, the man said he found the woman performing oral sex on him as he was sleeping on the couch. The woman however said that she did indeed perform fellatio on the man but claimed he was awake and approved of what she was doing. However the man disagrees and says that the incident scared him and subsequently caused mental anguish and psychological difficulties.

New Underpants Mean You Can Fart With Confidence

 

 

New York (Jan 23, 2007) - An American underwear manufacturer has invented underpants designed to hide the smell of flatulence. The Under-Ease pants have a built-in, multi-layered replaceable filter, made of felt, charcoal and fibreglass wool. To prevent gases escaping without passing through it, the underpants are made from air-tight fabric and completely sealed with elastic around the waistband and legs.

I may have had a glass of wine too many yesterday and didn't get enough sleep, but does this poll look wrong to you?

EDIT: Wrong file type, sorry.

Anyway, the question is: Has suicide ever touched your life?

Yes, family member 29%

Yes, friend or acquaintance 51%

No 21%

Social scientists should be made to take up more maths modules in the Uni, and NOT only statistics. I have always thought that these people would benefit more if they had a good lecture in topology for example...

Sword swallower skewers himself post-6373-1170666419.jpg

 

A German performer with the Circus of Horrors, Hannibal Helmurto (!), who happens to be an ex-tax inspector from Munich tried to get a 4ft sword down his throat but failed owing to a throat infection. This was back in November. His throat is now healed and on Friday 19th Jan he returned to action at the esteemed Beck Theatre in Hayes End, London. There seems to have been no further mishaps.

 

 

He also has giant yoyos fitted inside his earlobes and his tongue has been sliced with a laser to ensure it is permanently forked.

 

His stage show sees him insert huge hat pins through his face then drink water and squirt it out through the holes.

 

The "self-taught" Bavarian staples £10 notes to his forehead and dangles himself from just two meat hooks rammed through his back.

Two questions here

2. How often are they gonna be getting their cocks out that they'd be bullied?

I like the uncanniness here: Woman Charged in Alleged Shoe Attack on Boyfriend

 

 

RIVERVIEW – A Hillsborough County woman was released from jail after she allegedly attacked her boyfriend with a shoe. Deputies say Kari Barefoot, 41, hit her boyfriend in the head with a high-heeled wooden shoe after the two got into a fight about money.

This one here in Germany: Teens Turn Out to be Underarmed and Dangerous...

 

 

BERLIN (Reuters) - A group of young German women used so much spray deodorant in the bathroom of a North Sea youth hostel that it set off a fire alarm and brought the local fire brigade rushing to the rescue, police said Monday.

And then there's this one for Valentine's Day: Bathe in Chocolate this Valentine's Day

 

 

Hakone, JAPAN - [...] In Japan it's customary for women to give chocolates to men on Valentines Day. But this spa resort in the hot spring town of Hakone is offering a whole new way of celebrating Valentines Day in Japan by inviting both men and women to bathe in a chocolate bath together.
