Crazies In The News

25 Mar

In light of the republican crazy currently touring our country, I figured I’d introduce you to some other newsworthy lunatics.

Robbers FAIL – two would-be robbers decided to call a bank ahead of time giving them a heads up of their arrival. Too bad they didn’t realise that heads up also went to the police.

Drug mix-up – Melbourne customs mistook Nestea powder for 2.44 kg of methamphetamines. The poor owner of the drink powder had to spend 5 days in custody while the substance was tested. She at least was awarded $5,000 for the inconvenience. To be honest, I would spend 5 days in custody if I could get that much money in compensation.

Layman’s Twilight – A vampire copycat decided not to intimidate a cab driver with the gun that was in his possession, but instead thought it was a great idea to bite the man.

Home is wear the bars are – In a reverse prison escape, a man gets 15 years for breaking into a jail, in violation of his probation terms. A desperate man calls for desperate measures – he only did this because the jail wouldn’t take him back when he asked nicely.

Snail snot – A Miami man who claims he practices a traditional African religion made his devotees drink giant African snail mucus…because he can. There are two problems with this: 1) Giant African snails are prohibited in the U.S. without permission. 2) Snail boogers made people violently ill causing weight loss and stomach lumps.

Congrats to Scott Brown on ruining a Kennedy legacy, and aborting a tradition of class. Welcome to the Senate.

Oh the weirdness of the world. To divert your attention from your schooling and working, or to push you further into the procrastination pit, I’ve compiled some of the oddities of the week right here on the wonderful blog of me.

The Mexican ruling party wants to send some musicians to jail for performing songs that glorify drug use / trafficking. Afroman probably shouldn’t go to Mexico.

It seemed like a good idea at the time when 10 brave young Germans decided to drink chili sauce 200 times hotter than normal. Eight ended up being hospitalized, all of which are the laughing stock of their high school. For shame. Continue reading

Romi Reads The News [5]

Good Sunday to you all.

Here’s the news, better late than never…

First a shoe, now a statue – A statue was thrown (or was he punched?) at the ever scandalous Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi who was signing autographs during a rally in Milan. An innovative, but an extremely silly thing to do since the assailant is already in custody. Drawing blood from an Italian prime minister? Not so smart.

Tiger loses another sponsor – and no one is surprised.

Hopenhagen – as the summit continues, U.S. responsibility over the Alberta oilsands has surfaced, and activists are a plenty (and are arrested left, right and centre).

And finally, my two favourite weird news pieces this week:

In the most Willy Wonka fashion, a man dies from exploding chewing gum, and a woman was arrested for impersonating a witch and scamming a lawyer out of over $100,000.

Happy trails to you.
