  • Police Officer Sues Over Bagel Sandwich That Was Served With Body Hair. Eeeewwwww!!!

    Posted by Mike DuBord

     A police officer is suing a New Jersey delicatessen and its cook, who admitted stuffing body hair into the officer's bagel sandwich in revenge for a traffic arrest.

    The lawsuit filed by Patrolman Jeremy Merck of the Evesham, New Jersey, Police Department seeks unspecified damages from Good Foods to Go in Marlton, New Jersey, and its cook, Ryan Burke, for an incident that occurred in February 2010.

    Merck ordered an egg, cheese and turkey bagel and after eating part of it, he found it "was adulterated with pubic, chest or other human hair," the lawsuit said.

    Merck sought medical help and was checked for communicable diseases at a hospital, his attorney, Bruce Zamost, said on Friday. None was detected.

    Burke, who served Merck the sandwich, was later charged with aggravated assault, retaliation against a public servant and food tampering. He ultimately served 15 days in jail.

    According to a police report from the criminal case, "Burke admitted to tearing out hairs from his chest and his pubic area and placing them on Ptl. Merck's sandwich out of anger due to the fines and lawyers fees he had from the prior arrest in 2009."

    In 2009, Merck charged Burke with traffic offenses. Burke later complained the traffic case cost him $4,400.

    "Burke admitted that he did not like Ptl. Merck as a result of that incident and expressed that he shouldn't have to see Ptl. Merck at Good Foods to Go," the police report continued.

    A woman who answered the phone at the headquarters of the restaurant chain declined to comment on reports Burke was fired after the sandwich incident. The restaurant's lawyer, Mark Sander, could not be reached for comment on Friday.

    Zamost said no trial date has been set for the civil case but it would likely begin next year.

    It's 4am. A heavy misty fog settles over the community of Howard where I live. I've got my old, dirty Nike's on, a heavy sweat suit and i'm holding a 12lb. turkey in each arm. I begin my usual workout routine, running down Lineville Road, trying to get in shape for The 4th Annual Festival Foods Turkey Trot. This time, i'm going to attempt the 5 mile run and NOTHING is gonna stop me! My breathing is heavy, the sweat pouring off my brow and as I approach the end of my first mile....I FALL TO THE GROUND AND LITERALLY PASS OUT!

    Oh well, thank God there's the 2 mile walk/run. C'mon, get registered today!

  • Giant LEGO Man Washes On-Shore.

    Posted by Mike DuBord

    We've heard of people finding messages in bottles on the beach, but how about an 8-foot-tall LEGO figure?

     

    We first saw the news over at BoingBoing. Apparently a man was out walking on the beach near lovely Siesta Key in Florida, when he came across "something" laying in the surf a ways away. He went to investigate, and what do you know -- it was a giant LEGO man. On its torso was a message, reading "No Real Than You Are." Yeah, we don't get it either.

    Nobody (at least nobody official) is sure why the plastic figure showed up on the shore. We spoke to Amanda Santoro, Assistant Brand Relations Manager at LEGO. She declined comment but did say that the "stunt" was "in no way endorsed or sponsored by the LEGO Group or its affiliates."

    OK, so does that mean somebody stole a giant LEGO figure and planted it on the beach? Well, maybe. Believe it or not, this sort of thing has happened before. Several years back, a giant LEGO man washed up in the Dutch resort of Zandvoort. That same figure (or perhaps a twin) also appeared at a Brighton beach in the U.K.

    Is this the same LEGO man? Did it really cross the ocean by itself? Or was it placed there by a jokester? No way to know. Staged or not, it must have been an odd way to start the morning.

  • 11 Biggest Mistakes For Parents Who Are Facebook Friends With Their Kids.

    Posted by Mike DuBord

    So your kids finally friended you on Facebook. Congratulations — you now have mind-blowing inside access to their online worlds. Now what? Step 1: Don't embarrass them! How? By avoiding the top 11 mistakes parents make on Facebook. Avoid them like the plague. You'll keep the peace with your tween or teen — and hopefully, your coveted friend status, too. 1. Don't over-share. Do all 1,200 of your son's friends need to know that he still sucks his thumb at night or that he bombed his driving test? No and no! If you think a wall comment will embarrass your child, it will. If you don't have anything nice to say... hold back. Respect your children's privacy online and off. It shows them you care. It also teaches them to respect their own privacy. 2. Realize that everyone sees your comments. Tread lightly and always remember that all of your children's Facebook friends can view every single comment you oh-so-lovingly post on their walls. That includes their BFFs, classmates, and (potentially) employers and teachers. Communicating on Facebook is anything but a private affair. 3. Don't pry. It's okay to casually ask your kid how he's doing on his wall — but only once in a long while. Not every day or even every week, and certainly not every hour. I'm a 36-year-old mom of three, and it would even embarrass me if my parents bugged me too often on Facebook. Thankfully they don't, but that doesn't mean they don't stalk my wall anyway. (Ahem, mentioning my status updates during phone conversations is a dead giveaway.) 4. Don't get too personal. Some topics are never okay to bring up on your teen's wall, like why the heck did they dump their significant other or if that fancy acne cream you bought them is clearing things up. Ask sensitive parent-child questions in person, in email, or via text or private Facebook message instead. Model the restraint you want them to have. Sometimes you'll get lucky, and the answers to your questions will already be on your child's wall anyway, thanks to status updates and Place check-ins flowing in every two minutes. 5. Don't tag your child in photos. Not even the adorable brace-face ones — at least not without asking if it's okay first. Save those gems for Awkward Family Photos! Er, we mean, skip tagging altogether, and give tweens and teens a chance to forge their own identity online. Each pic you tag with her name — even those drooly baby pics — automagically appears in their profiles. Besides, you don't want anyone to snag those precious baby photos and then pretend your kid is theirs. 6. Never assume your kid can chat just because he or she is logged in. If your daughter doesn't reply to your Facebook chat request right away, she either forgot to log out, stepped away from the laptop, or — brace yourself — might not even feel like chatting with you. Try not to take it personally. All three of my teenaged babysitters prefer not to chat with their parents on Facebook (or anywhere online) at all, "like ever." Texts and Facetime do the trick, they say. 7. Never, ever reply to comments for your kids. They cringe when you speak on their behalf in person. Why would you do it on Facebook? Even if you're dying to tell your daughter's friends that yes, she did get into Harvard, it's best to let your teen toot her own horn. 8. Don't nag kids to do their chores. It's not cool to remind them to scrub the toilet, fold the laundry, or take care of just about any other task right there on their walls for everyone to see (and laugh at). You'll only tick kids off. And, more importantly, you'll waste precious time you could spend nagging them in person. 9. Don't stalk their significant others. This starts with not friending said person in the first place. But if for some reason you are Facebook friends, don't comment on his or her wall. It mortifies your teen and makes you look meddlesome. However, that doesn't mean you can't peek around their Info page, though, hint, hint. 10. Don't chide or punish them. "You're grounded, mister!" is probably the last comment any kid wants littering their wall. Sure, disciplining kids via Facebook makes them feel worse about whatever it is they did, but admonishing your kids in such a public way erodes their trust in you. You'll also miss out on a valuable opportunity to talk to them in person about their behavior and what they should do to make it right. 11. Don't Like too much. Don't Like every picture, status update, comment, or link your teen posts. In fact, don't Like much at all. Sure, everyone likes a virtual pat here and there, but don't go overboard — not when your future adults are forging their own identities online, and, like it or not, asserting their independence from you. Friends and family It's a good sign if your tween or teen friends you on Facebook. Think of it as a testament to your child's maturity and self-control. (Or did you make them friend you?) "Kids who (voluntarily) friend their parents get the concept of discretion and public persona," says Ariel Wiggens, a 20-year-old Starbucks barista from Long Beach, Calif. She's been of Facebook since she was a teenager. "Unlike a lot of people in my generation and younger, I know when to draw the line between what's private and what's not," she says. "And I'm glad my parents do, too, especially in front of everyone online." Be a good friend Just like you tell your kid, knowing the rules isn't enough. Following them is. The same goes for Facebook. If you forget all the above don'ts, just follow the Golden Rule. Be considerate and always treat your kids how you want to be treated on Facebook. When in doubt, leave it out. Just say no to TMI. When you do, your little Facebook addict might actually think you're cool after all. Not that he'd actually say so... at least not on his wall, anyway.

  • Billy Ray Cyrus Claims He Recently Saw A UFO. Dude...REALLY?!?!

    Posted by Mike DuBord

    This guy's gotten more bad press than Muamar Gadaffi Over The Years! Why Would He Share This With The Press???

     

     

    Billy Ray Cyrus has either had an extraterrestrial sighting, or he’s been sniffing too much of his daughter Miley’s hairspray. Decide for yourself. The singer posted this picture to his Twitter page, explaining that the gold circles were aircrafts from another planet.

    “O. K. . ..my first U F O sighting.Looks like 5 or 6 disk like shapes hovering. Special moment 4 DAD,” Cyrus tweeted on Sunday. It’s not clear if the discs were seen zipping across the sky or if they just hovered above the horizon for Cyrus to snap this photo. The skeptic may want to call the country singer crazy, but his UFO explanation sounds as good as any we could come up with.

    Almost as confusing as the mysterious picture is Cyrus’ “Special moment 4 DAD’ tag on last night’s tweet. It comes off as if he’s identifying himself as only the father of five children (two adopted), ignoring that he’s also a talented singer/actor/performer.

    Next month, look for Cyrus to begin his role as the father to Austin on the CW network’s ’90210

     

     

  • Freed Tigers, Lions & Bears Causing Panic In Ohio.

    Posted by Mike DuBord

     

    ZANESVILLE, Ohio (Reuters) - Dozens of exotic animals including tigers, lions and bears were let loose on Ohio farmland by their owner before he committed suicide, sparking a shoot-to-kill hunt for the wild beasts and forcing panicked residents to stay inside on Wednesday.

    A grizzly bear and a mountain lion -- one of which had strayed onto a neighbor's property -- were captured on Wednesday, leaving only a monkey unaccounted for out of about 50 animals on the farm, said Muskingum County Sheriff Matt Lutz.

    The animals had roamed out of their cages and off the farm and one went as far as an interstate highway shortly before dark on Tuesday near Zanesville in eastern Ohio. Authorities shut down schools and posted electronic warning signs "Caution Exotic Animals" for motorists and urged people to stay inside.

    "We are not talking about your normal every day house cat or dog. These are 300-pound Bengal tigers that we had to put down," Lutz said. "I gave the order ... that if animals looked like they were on their way out, they were put down."

    Lutz said 48 to 51 animals had been kept on the farm.

    Owner Terry Thompson, who had been charged in the past with animal cruelty, was found dead from an apparently self-inflicted wound when authorities went to the farm Tuesday after reports of animals running free, Lutz said at a news conference. They found gates and animal pens open.

    "There were animals running loose outside the fenced area," he said. Some, including primates, were secured on the farm.

    Lutz said animals kept at the farm included wolves, grizzly and black bears and many types of "big cats" such as cheetahs, mountain lions and leopards, in addition to lions and tigers.

    Authorities said they had received about 35 calls in recent years about the menagerie. Complaints ranged from animals running loose to not being treated properly, Lutz said.

    "We've handled numerous complaints here, we've done numerous inspections here," he said. "So this has been a huge problem for us for a number of years."

    Thompson had been charged with animal cruelty 11 times between 2004 and 2009, the local newspaper reported, citing county court records.

    There were allegations he undernourished his horses, then fed them to lions when they died, said Larry Hostetler, executive director of the Muskingum County Animal Shelter.

    DANGEROUS ANIMALS

    Lutz described the freed animals found as "mature, very big and aggressive."

    One bear attacked a law enforcement officer, Jack Hanna, director emeritus of the Columbus Zoo, told ABC News. Another animal -- some type of big cat -- wandered onto an interstate highway and was hit by a vehicle, Lutz said.

    The sheriff said they tried to shoot some of the animals with tranquilizer guns but encountered problems.

    "We just had a huge tiger, an adult tiger that must've weighed 300 pounds that was very aggressive," Lutz said. "We got a tranquilizer in it and this thing just went crazy."

    The tiger was then killed, he said.

    Lutz said he issued a shoot-to-kill order Tuesday evening and stationed officers on Interstate 70 about a mile west of the Zanesville city limits to prevent animals from crossing.

    "We were not going to have animals running loose off this farm at night," he told reporters.

    He said he also ordered the schools closed on Wednesday. "We didn't want kids standing at the bus stop" while wild animals were loose, Lutz said.

    Hanna told the news conference Lutz and his deputies did the right thing.

    "These are dangerous animals," Hanna said. "He and other people there are doing everything they can to capture the animals humanely but these are dangerous animals."

    In addition to the animal cruelty charges, Lutz also was convicted of illegal firearms possession in 2008 and spent a year in prison, according to court documents found by Reuters

  • New Iphone App Finds Woman With Another Man. OUCH!!!

    Posted by Mike DuBord

    When Apple released its new iOS 5 operating system to go with its iPhone 4S, it touted a new app called "Find My Friends" as a great way to track and meet up with friends. If they agree, you can see their locations on a map on your screen.

    But the app's enterprising customers are apparently already finding other uses. If the online posts appearing on a chat forum at MacRumors.com are for real, "Find My Friends" may have already claimed its first marriage.

    Saturday night on MacRumors, a man saying he lived in New York City posted this:

    "Divorcing wife. Thanks iPhone 4s and Find My Friends.

    "I got my wife a new 4s and loaded up find my friends without her knowing. She told me she was at her friends house in the east village. I've had suspicions about her meeting this guy who live uptown. Lo and behold, Find my Friends has her right there.

    "I just texted her asking where she was and the dumb b---- said she was on 10th Street!! Thank you Apple, thank you App Store, thank you all. These beautiful treasure trove of screen shots [sic] going to play well when I meet her ... at the lawyer's office in a few weeks.

    "thankfully, she's the rich one."

    It has not been determined whether the story posted on MacRumors was, in fact, authentic, and the man did not immediately reply to a request from ABC News for comment. But more than 100,000 people have viewed the posts, according to MacRumors. More than 300 of them replied with expressions of sympathy, skepticism and -- this being the Internet -- a few less-than-savory jokes.

    Arnold Kim, the editorial director of MacRumors, said it was "definitely a busy thread." MacRumors did not try to verify the man's story (if, in fact, it was a man), but said everyone who registers for its forums has to validate their email when they register

  • Woman Accused Of Using Power Saw On Husband.

    Posted by Mike DuBord

    I read this story on Yahoo today and thought to myself, is this woman deranged or did HE do something so bad, he literally sent over the edge? Ya know...cause I am a man after all and I have seen that  look in my wife's eyes after doing something stupid enough for her to want to grab my power saw. I can only hope that Tammy hasn't seen this story. I wouldn't want to give her any ideas!

     

    Police in Everett, Wash., say a woman is accused of cutting her sleeping husband's neck and shoulder with a power saw. Officers who arrived at the home say they could hear the man shouting: "You tried to cut my head off. You're going to jail." The Daily Herald reports the 43-year-old woman appeared in court Monday on a charge of domestic violence assault and a judge kept her bail at $250,000. The newspaper did not identify her. Police say the woman told officers she grabbed the reciprocating saw Friday night because an intruder escaped out her daughter's window. Sgt. Robert Goetz says there was no evidence of an intruder and a child lock prevented the window from opening more than a few inches. The 36-year-old man was treated at a hospital.
