What were they thinking...

- A doctor in Nairobi successfully removed a bean lodged in a young girl's ear. According to the Daily Nation, when her parents told him they didn't have enough to pay his bill, the doctor "grabbed the child and forced the bean back into her ear..."

- A man in Johannesberg, South Africa, shot his 49-year-old friend in the face, seriously wounding him, while the two practiced shooting beer cans off each other's head.

- In our Likely Story department this week, the crew of a trawler that sank in the Sea of Japan claimed their ship went down after "being struck by a cow which fell out of the clear blue sky". According to Flying magazine, no one believed this absurd explanation-- except the Russian military. It seems that the crew of a military cargo jet had stolen a cow they found wandering on a Siberian airfield, and loaded it aboard. While cruising at 30,000 feet, the terrified cow ran amok and jumped out of the plane.

- 9-year-old boy in Manassas, Virginia received a one-day suspension under his elementary school's drug policy last week - for Certs! Joey Hoeffer allegedly told a classmate that the mints would make him "jump higher."

- And a student in Belle, West Virginia was suspended for three days for giving a classmate a cough drop. School principal Forest Mann reiterated the school's "zero-tolerance" policy...not to be confused with the "zero-intelligence" policy.

- A man spoke frantically into the phone: "My wife is pregnant and her contractions are only two minutes apart!" "Is this her first child?" the doctor asked. "No, you idiot!" the man shouted. "This is her husband!"

- In Ohio, an unidentified man in his late twenties walked into a police station with a 9-inch wire protruding from his forehead, and calmly asked officers to give him an X-ray to help him find his brain, which he claimed had been stolen. Police were shocked to learn that the man had drilled a 6-inch deep hole in his skull with a Black & Decker power drill, and stuck the wire in to try and find the missing brain.

Truth is stranger than fiction, I should know, I have been there, as a matter of fact, i had a similar thing happen to me when I was a cop in OH. He was using penny's to keep aliens from stealing his thoughts.

You can't make this shit up.

The scariest part is that we spend money to protect the rights of these morons, then they breed and multiply and we wonder why the world is getting dumber everyday.

Thanks for the laughs,
XOXO

Rock{=} No all fact, not fiction. Shame on you! Do we have an attitude going...no matter what everyone deserves to be loved Either way...when two people create a child there is no guarantee...two of the most brilliant minded people could have a 'special needs' child...you have to think beyond the box sometimes.
No offense intended

Brought to you by your local attorneys! There is nothing in life they cn't manage to fuck up for everybody! What is really scary is it's the members of this same club we allow to actually make LAW!

But funny stuff, sorta like the darwin awards!
