Woman Gets 2 Years in Prison ‘Cause She Poured Hot Bacon Grease on Ex-Boyfriend

Shiree Franklin


*Dang, as if being burned by a pot of hot grits isn’t frightening enough (Wink. Wink. Its a think back thing), an Oregon woman will now serve time in prison for admittedly throwing hot bacon grease on an ex-boyfriend. This, while he was sleeping.

That’s one helluva way to wake somebody up. Sends this body into spasms just thinking about it. 

Defense attorney Brian Schmonsees said this about the thought of his client, Shiree Franklin, being in prison, “I’m not particularly happy about it. It’s going to put a good woman in prison.”

Well, I guess he had to say something. Continue reading

Court Makes Man Pay $30K in Child Support for Kid That’s Not Even His


*Carnell Alexander is being pursued by the welfare dept. to reimburse them to the tune of more than $30,000 in the state of Michigan because an ex-girlfriend wrongly named him on paperwork as the child’s father when she applied for assistance in the 80s.

Alexander learned of the paternity case against him in 1991, after being stopped for a traffic violation. The police officer called him a dead-beat dad, and he was taken into custody.

“I knew I didn’t have a child so I was kind of blown away,” said Alexander in an interview late last year. A notification was sent to Alexander at a house in Highland Park. Because paperwork had been filed and he did not appear in court, Alexander was assumed to be a negligent father. Continue reading

‘Have it Your Way’ Huh? Burger King Drive Thru Hands Woman a Bag ‘O Money

A Burger King drive thru sign

*Uh let’s see, you stammer as you peruse the menu while sitting in your car, in line at the Burger King Drive thru. I’ll have a burger, some fries, and instead of ketchup can you give me BBQ sauce, please? Sure, says the voice behind the speaker. And when you get up to the window, there’s a young worker with headphones around her neck, just waiting for you to get your order and drive off so she can finish listening to Ariana Grande. But in the process of her distraction, your burger and fries is still sitting on the counter. But what she has given you instead works just fine. A bag full of cash.

Oh, somebody’s gonna get their butt fired!

No one was more surprised than Janelle Jones, who went through the Burger King drive-thru and was handed a bag full of cash instead of her food.

Jones says she discovered the bag didn’t contain the sweet tea and junior spicy chicken sandwich that she had ordered on the way home on Friday at the Rochester New Hampshire fast-food restaurant.

According to Foster’s Daily Democrat  Jones called her husband and they decided to return the $2,631, which turned out to be a Burger King bank deposit.

Matthew Jones, the husband, says the couple briefly considered keeping the money, which they certainly could have used. But he says he and his wife are Jehovah’s Witnesses, and that “Jehovah sees everything.”

The newspaper reports that the restaurant confirmed the couple’s account but had no comment on it.

That’s probably best.

Would you have returned the money, knowing you could have easily gotten away with it?

Police in Kenya Tear-gas Primary School Children Who Protest to Save Their Playground

KENYAN children teargassed

*Its a rare thing to hear about children protesting about anything. We don’t really give them credit for being wise enough to know about such things.

But on Monday children in Nairobi, Kenya took a stand to protect their school’s playground, which was said to be confiscated by a powerful politician. But as they protested the take, Kenyan police tear-gassed them. This according to what a a Kenyan human rights activist told the Associated Press.

The Langata Road Primary School students, said to be between six and 13 years of age, were front and center among those pulling down a wall that had been put in place around the playground that was acquired by a private developer said to be a powerful politician, said Boniface Mwangi.

Watch: Teen Posed as OB-GYN at Hospital for a Month Before He Was Caught (In the Exam Room!)

*If you’re old enough, you may remember Doogie Howser, the lovable teen doctor portrayed by Neil Patrick Harris in the late 80’s to early 90’s. Well folks got another taste of this recently, but it wasn’t on TV.

He called himself, “Dr. Robinson,” and after the fact, hospital staff at St, Mary’s Medical Center in Florida found themselves scratching their heads saying, “I thought something was strange about that young man!” Now you know folks need a good talking to if they didn’t question the teenage boy with the stethoscope around his neck, calling himself doctor.

But apparently, they were too busy being impressed.

The teen walked the halls of the Medical Center in West Palm Beach for four weeks straight before anyone thought something was a bit off kilter.

Police described him as wearing a white coat with the St. Mary’s logo.

*It seems Alex Malarkey, the boy who wrote what turned out to be a best-selling book detailing his journey to heaven and back during the two months he spent in a coma was “full of malarkey,” as they say in The Bronx. He has now recanted his story and the publisher is subsequently pulling the book.

Now 17, Alex wrote The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven with his father, Kevin Malarkey. He had been in a car crash in 2004 that left him paralyzed. The memoir, published in 2010 as part of the popular “heavenly tourism genre,” detailed his “recollections” of talking to Jesus Christ and even meeting with the devil. Since its publication, the book has sold more than one million copies, according to the Washington Post.
