Even More Dumbasses

An unnamed 24-year-old Novato, California, man has been arrested after police allegedly found 5 pounds of marijuana, about a half-ounce of Ecstasy, a pound of psychedelic mushrooms, a digital scale, small plastic baggies, three cellphones and nearly $2,000 in currency in his car. The man was already on probation for a previous drug trafficking conviction and might’ve avoided his latest arrest had he not bragged about his activities on Facebook.


The Sun claims a Worcester, Massachusetts Burger King is under fire for posting the following sign in their restaurant: “You are ONLY allowed ONE overdose and then you are banned from this establishment.”The sign was posted to deter junkies from overdosing in the restaurants bathroom.

The Burger King has had nine overdoses since last August.

Burger King released the following statement: “The actions of this Team Member were an isolated incident and do not reflect the Burger King brand values or the values of the Franchisee, who independently owns and operates this restaurant.”



After responding to a domestic disturbance call in Sebastian, Florida, Pamela Alonge apologized to officers for arguing loudly with her boyfriend in the backyard. As for the boyfriend, he was evasive and argumentative and refused to identify himself. As he was being arrested, he finally said his name was ‘Captain Dickhead.’ The captain was later identified as Joseph Boren and he now faces an obstruction charge.


An unnamed Austrian man went on Facebook and warned other motorists about a local speed trap, saying that ‘two smurfs’ were standing with lasers on a local highway. Our Facebook friend now faces a $197 fine. However, the fine isn’t for tipping others off about the speed trap, but for describing police officers as “smurfs.” Authorities fined the man for violating “public decency” by “defaming two police officers.”


Reno high school student Noah Christiansen called the offices of Nevada Rep. Mark Amodei last week to request the nation’s leaders “get off their f*cking asses” and pass gun reform laws to help keep students safe in schools. Although lawmakers remain on their asses, Christiansen no longer has to worry about being shot in school. At least he won’t have to worry for the two days he was suspended from Robert McQueen High School after the congressman’s office called the school’s principal to complain about his disrespectful behavior and language.


Florida woman sets fire to car she locked herself into to nap, deputies say

By Shannon McLellan

MARION COUNTY, Fla. – A woman was arrested after she broke into a vehicle at a car dealership to sleep, then set the car on fire with a cigarette as she was locked inside, deputies say.

Video shows Dolores Graham, 62, being removed from a vehicle outside a car dealership on South Pine Avenue.

Deputies say they were called to the dealership on reports of a suspicious incident. When they arrived, they found Graham inside of one of the dealership’s vehicles, deputies said. The front windshield of the car was shattered, the video shows.

Graham told deputies that she broke into one of the vehicles on the lot to sleep and locked herself inside. She said she then tossed a cigarette under the front seat of the car, which caused it to start on fire. Graham claims she couldn’t get out of the car, so she began to smash out the front windshield with her hands and feet, according to a Facebook post by the Marion County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies were able to show her how to exit the vehicle, and she was removed, the video shows. They then used a fire extinguisher to put out the flames, according to the post.

Graham was transported to the Marion County Jail on charges of burglary of an unoccupied structure and felony criminal mischief.


Woman receives wrong breakfast sandwich at a Glendale McDonald’s. The scene then quickly turned ugly.

Jeff Rumage, Now News Group

GLENDALE – A woman who received sausage instead of bacon on her McDonald’s breakfast sandwich was so angered over her botched order that she allegedly went behind the counter and pushed a 17-year-old female employee to the ground at 10:49 a.m. Sunday, March 18.

The woman originally ordered a bacon breakfast sandwich through the drive-thru at the McDonald’s at 5344 N. Port Washington Road. When she received the wrong sandwich, she threw the bag at the employee and said, “What the (expletive) is this? I didn’t order no sausage biscuit.”

The manager of the McDonald’s apologized to the woman and corrected her order, but several minutes later, the woman came inside the restaurant, cut in line and started yelling at the employee because she still did not get the bacon sandwich.

She berated the employee and the manager, saying, “I know you people only make two (expletive) cents an hour.” The manager refunded the woman in cash, but the customer was still angry.

The woman walked behind the counter to continue arguing with the manager. A 17-year-old female employee tried to intervene, and the woman pushed the intervening employee. The 17-year-old female hit her head on the french fry station and then hit her head on the ground, according to police.

The customer, accompanied by a second woman, walked out of the restaurant, got into a car and fled. The 17-year-old employee was taken to the hospital to get checked out. She did not get burned by the fry grease.

Police plan to pursue felony assault charges against the woman who pushed the employee. The Glendale Police Department is asking anyone with information about either of the women pictured in the surveillance camera footage to call 414-228-1753.


Woman dies after acupuncture using live bee stings instead of needles


by Anissa Calma-Brown

Acupuncture is gaining popularity around the world as a harmless, if unproven, alternative method of pain relief. But are some people taking the practice too far by using bee stings instead of needles?

A 55-year-old Spanish woman died after receiving live bee acupuncture, according to a case study published in the Journal of Investigational Allergology and Clinical Immunology. The cause of death was a severe allergic reaction to the venom, though she had previously attended about 24 sessions. She is believed to be the first person to die from the therapy despite previously showing no signs of an allergic reaction.

The unnamed victim, who had no reported diseases, had been receiving apitherapy treatment every month for two years without any reaction, according to the journal.

The recently published case study doesn’t specify when the woman started experiencing problems with the treatment.

The journal says she was rushed to the hospital, where she died from multiple organ failure.

The journal’s authors say it is possible for someone to have a deadly reaction after having the procedure so many times before.

“Repeated exposure to the allergen was found to carry a greater risk of severe allergic reactions than in the general population,” Vázquez-Revuelta and Madrigal-Burgaleta wrote.

This is the first reported death caused by bee venom apitherapy in a patient who was previously tolerant of the treatment, according to the journal.


Boy gets Eyelid Caught in Jacket Zipper

by Chelsea Ritschel

A young boy in China ended up in hospital after he got his eyelid caught in his jacket zipper.

The schoolboy, whose name is unknown, was taken to Affiliated Children’s Hospital of Soochow University in Suzhou, Jiangsu Province, on March 12 – after his eyelid got snagged as he zipped up his jacket with his head down.

At the hospital, Dr Liu Xiang, an ophthalmology specialist, requested the help of local firefighters to free the boy.

Using scissors to cut the jacket and then a pair of pliers, video released shows the firefighters gently plying the jacket away from the boy’s face.

After a few minutes, the firefighters were able to release the boy’s eyelid – which had been tightly caught in the zipper.

According to news organisation Huanqui.com, the boy was fine once he was treated by Dr Xiang – except for a minor cut on the skin of his eyelid.

However, Dr Xiang told reporters the boy’s eyelid could have suffered serious tissue damage had the zipper stayed on any longer.

As for the boy’s parents, Dr Xiang advised them to teach the boy the proper method of zipping a jacket.

A word of advice – always keep your head raised when zipping a jacket.


Man tries to smuggle an entire ANT COLONY from Africa into China to make medicinal wine


By Tiffany Lo For Mailonline

A Chinese flight passenger was caught by customs officials for attempting to smuggle a 9.9lbs live ant colony from east Africa.

The unnamed man filled his red suitcase with an entire colony of ants and did not send declaration to the customs at a Chinese airport.

He claimed the golden-coloured ants had strong medicinal effects and he prepared to make wine using the ants.

According to btime.com, the Chinese traveller took flight no. ET 636 of Ethiopian Airlines and landed at Shuangliu Airport in Chengdu, southwest China on March 18.

The officer opened the luggage and shocked to find a colony of live ants filled in the compartment.

The colony weighed about 4.4 kilograms (9.9 lbs), stated the airport customs.

The passenger explained he dug up the ant colony during his visit in Addis Ababa, capital city of Ethiopia.

He believed the ants had strong medicinal value and he planned to brew them into wine at home.

According to traditional Chinese herbology, ant wine is commonly use to alleviate pain caused by arthritis.

Shuangliu Airport customs claimed it was the biggest seizure involving live ants and ant colony.

It was not sure if the man has faced any charges.

The ant colony is now passed onto the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine.

Malaysia’s Abu Zarin Hussin became famous as the “snake whisperer” for his work in leading the King Cobra Squad of the fire department, where he trained fellow firefighters to identify and capture poisonous snakes without killing them. Sadly, the snake whisperer died of irony last Friday after being bitten by a deadly king cobra during a snake-catching operation.


Liverpool’s Chelsea Devine and Jamie Melling demanded to be paid over $3,000 in compensation after they contracted food poisoning while on vacation in Spain. Unfortunately, the couple has now been ordered to pay the tour operator over $20,000. It seems the whole food poisoning thing was a scam and Chelsea and Jamie might’ve gotten away with it had they not posted vacation photos on Facebook that showed them smiling and happy in their room and swimming in the pool.


Pastor Tommy Clark of Morrisville, North Carolina, recently shared a photo with parishioners on Facebook. One comment read: “Our pastor just uploaded the wrong photo and is married to a woman. Smh.” The photo in question showed Pastor Clark and another man kissing while shirtless in bed. The pastor later shut down his Facebook page, but not before parishioners grabbed screenshots of the photo and shared it online.


Christi Ruhtz has been fired from her job after Pinellas County Sheriff’s deputies busted her for DUI in Largo, Florida. Christi might still have her job and avoided arrest had she not been seen driving her vehicle in reverse and honking her horn. Incidentally, the job Christi was fired from was that of lieutenant with the aforementioned Pinellas County Sheriff’s Department.


Mohave, Arizona’s Darla Faye Drury was arrested on DUI charges last Thursday. Darla might’ve avoided arrest had she not gotten into a car accident and instructed her 10-year-old daughter to walk to a family member’s house nearby. As she did so, the daughter called police, who arrived to find Darla heavily intoxicated with slurred speech. Darla’s blood alcohol level was nearly four times the legal limit and in addition to open alcohol containers in the vehicle, she further endeared herself to the officers by calling them offensive names.



Three men arrested after police chase at Birkenhead involving STAR Group officers


THREE men armed with a hammer tried to carjack an SUV driven by STAR Group officers during a car chase that started at Birkenhead overnight.

Just after midnight, police tried to pull over a silver Nissan Skyline on Hargrave St but the driver refused to stop.

Patrols followed the stolen vehicle for a short time before the police helicopter took over from the sky.

A mechanical issue forced the Skyline to come to a halt on Tapleys Hill Rd. The suspects got out of the car, armed with a hammer, and threatened people in a Toyota SUV behind them — who turned out to be STAR Group officers.

The three men got back in the Skyline and drove a short distance on a popped tyre before turning into Warren Ave.

They abandoned the car at the corner of Shannon Ave, at Novar Gardens, and were quickly arrested.

A 20-year-old Munno Para man and a 25-year-old Elizabeth Vale man were charged with illegal use and two counts of aggravated assault against police.

Police said a 30-year-old Elizabeth South man was charged with driving unlicensed, driving dangerously to avoid police and engaging in pursuit.

Two of the men were refused police bail and will appear in court Monday.
The Elizabeth Vale man was bailed and will appear in Port Adelaide Magistrates Court on April 23.


Romanian Court Says Man Is Dead Even Though He Appeared in Court To Argue Otherwise


When Constantin Reliu appeared in a Romanian court this week, he thought it would be simple to clear up a mistaken death certificate that his wife obtained after he spent the last decade in Turkey, but that was not the case according to The Guardian.

Reliu asked the court in the town of Barlad to overturn the death certificate since he was simply out of contact with his family for those years but the court told him that he was too late to reverse it and he would have to remain officially deceased.

“I am officially dead, although I’m alive,” Reliu told local media outlets about his Kafka-esque courtroom experience. “I have no income and because I am listed dead, I can’t do anything.”

Reliu may have never known that he was declared dead in his home country if he wasn’t apprehended by Turkish authorities earlier this year and then deported back to Bucharest due to expired documents.

Reliu was planning to renew his passport in Romania and then return to Turkey, but upon returning to the Southeastern European country, Reliu was detained by immigration officers who informed him that he was declared dead in 2003.

“The head of the border police in Otopeni [airport] called me to his office, turned on his computer and showed it to me: ‘Look, Constantin Reliu [declared] dead by his wife,’” he told local news channel Digi24 on Wednesday.

The 63-year-old left Romania for Turkey in 1992 for a job opportunity but returned to the country in 1999, when he appeared to cut off all contact with his family.

After years of no contact from her estranged husband, Reliu’s wife was able to obtain a backdated death certificate for him.

The Romanian daily newspaper Adevarul said that Reliu’s wife said that after hearing nothing from her husband since 1999, she assumed he died in an earthquake that struck Turkey.

The paper said that Reliu believes she wanted to obtain the death certificate in order to annul the marriage and remarry someone else.

Reliu says he is now facing a morbid legal battle to try and regain his identity and obtain a passport in order to return to Turkey and establish a small company there.

A spokeswoman for the court explained the situation to local news outlets that Reliu was too late in his appeal against the death certificate so he had lost the case.

The ruling is final and can not be appealed against, she said, which leaves Reliu in a mysteriously legal limbo.

One option under Romanian law says that Reliu can file for an annulment of the death certificate in the same court where the 2016 decision was issued.
