*In what can only be assumed was a “who drank all the damn orange juice!” meltdown moment, a Louisiana man is in custody after shooting his 18-year-old son in the butt during a fight about orange juice, police said.
Eldridge Dukes, 58, faces charges of attempted manslaughter and illegal use of a weapon, according to police in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
The incident, which would be funny if it weren’t so dangerous, happened early Sunday after the two started fussing about the lack of orange juice at their home, according to Baton Rouge police spokesman Corporal Don Coppola. Continue reading →
*Damn! Damn! Damn! Sorry to cuss, but I feel for this dude. According to Reuters, the Southern California resident came forward to claim a $1 million lottery prize but was sent home empty-handed because he said while he bought the winning ticket he later misplaced it, a lottery official said on Friday.
The six-month deadline had passed for a ticket holder to claim the $1 million Powerball prize in the California Lottery drawing, according to spokesman Alex Traverso .
The winning ticket was sold at a supermarket in Rosemead, less than 10 miles (16 km) east of Los Angeles, and a video camera at the store captured the moment when it was sold to a young man with close-cropped hair. Continue reading →
*Hey, some of us go on a site like eBay to look for items such as books, antiques, even cars because they have a buyer’s protection plan. But buyers also bid on weirder items and the online auction site considers selling these oddities so much a part of the norm that it even has a sales channel entitled “oddities” where people can compete to own some unmentionable items.
Looking at the title, you see where I’m going with this, right?
Some fool, er, excuse me, somebody is actually trying to sell the air from a Kanye West concert. But thats not the kicker because as we know people will try to sell anything. The kicker is there are people who are actually willing to buy it. No, even this is an understatement – the bidding price for the Ziploc bag of air had reached $65,000 ! Continue reading →
*Well, he doesn’t look crazy. But what would a 5-year-old crazy kid look like anyway? Still even the strongest believers in reincarnation might raise a brow at this healthy boy saying he was once Pam Robinson, an African-American woman who died in a fire at the Paxton Hotel in Chicago in 1993.
The boy’s mom, Erica, who works at home, certainly raised her brow when her son started talking about “Pam” at the age of 2. She got up the gumption to ask him directly about this “Pam.”
“He turned to me and said, ‘Well, I was,'” she told Fox 8 (video above). “[He said] ‘Well, I used to be, but I died and I went up to heaven. I saw God and then eventually, God pushed me back down and I was a baby and you named me Luke.'”
*Wish you could read what’s printed on her shirt? All we can tell is that it says something about GUYS. Take that, coupled with the fact that this brazen women (pictured above) hid 785 pairs of panties in dem der bags she’s carrying and you’ve got one sista planning on staying busy for quite some time.
Atlanta police are on high alert as they search for the suspected shoplifter who stole the panties from the Victoria’s Secret boutique inside Lenox Mall in the ATL.
The blurred surveillance photo above was released by the Atlanta Police Dept. on Thursday. The image is of a woman who they say stuffed all those panties into 3 shopping bags during a 2-hour shoplifting spree on Saturday.Continue reading →
*Ah man, this could be any of our grandmamas. Old and fumbling, but insisting on getting those bills paid on time. Telling you, “Move baby. That’s alright. I can do it myself!” But she can’t…and she didn’t. Instead of mailing the rent check to the landlord, a 79-year-old woman accidentally mailed it to her cable company — Xfinity Comcast. Uh oh.
She mailed them her cable bill too.
But when ‘gramma’ went to rectify the situation — she was shocked when the telecom giant didn’t want to give her the money back.
Let’s play a little game, you and I, shall we? I’ll write a short script on how this scenario may have gone down. And you, reader, will write your version in the ‘comments’ section at the end of this story.
Ready? Here we go,
Comcast: “Ma’am, please. Just be patient. We will have to investigate this and get back to you.”
Granny: “Well I don’t know about that son. I have to pay my rent. How long will it take?
Comcast: These things usually take about six weeks.
Granny: (Screaming at the top of her lungs) SIX WEEKS!?
*You’ve got to give it to our president, he will stop at nothing to get a deed done. Even if it means getting out of his comfort zone and gettin’ jiggy with it by posing for a selfie.
Barack Obama‘s signature health care law at healthcare.gov has a sign up deadline approaching and the president did something way out of character to promote it.
He got together with BuzzFeed’s Andrew Ilnyckyj and went on camera wielding his selfie stick and dropping a “YOLO, man” in a video for BuzzFeed Motion Pictures with the goal of getting Americans to sign up.
The video published on Thursday features Obama and Ilnyckyj doing “things everybody does but doesn’t talk about.”
*Oh girl. Obviously, that wasn’t a good move. I mean, how are you gonna go online and talk crap about your new job…the one you haven’t even started yet – and then think you’re going to get away with it.
But you did it, and the result you got fired, online, in front of everybody.
The Texas business owner saw the tweet the woman published putting down the position she was hired to do.
