Not like anyone needs telling, but President Barak Obama was recently sworn in as 44th president of the United States but while George W. Bush was literally kicked out. Over the course of six hours, people threw various footwear at a large inflatable balloon with a “Pinocchio nose” resembling the ex-president.

A 25 lb. coconut-sized kidney stone was removed from a man recently!

A little boy was killed in a freak accident at a monster truck rally when a loose heavy metal ring was flung toward his head.

Here’s a follow-up:
Remember little Adolf Hitler who was denied a cake with his name on it from ShopRite, and his sister Joycelynn Aryan Nation? They, and their 8-month old sister were all removed from their home recently by New Jersey’s Division of Youth and Family Services.

And, looks like the secret-blow-up doll-lover-man was caught and arrested in Australia recently.

In another similar case story as previously mentioned, an English bulldog named Lulu was found with 15 pacifiers in its belly.

SHARK ATTACK!!!! In the third shark attack of the day in Australia- little Hannah Mighall fought back and saved part of her leg, but her no longer functional surfboard was not so lucky.

Bestiality might soon become a 3rd degree felony in Florida!

_________________________________________________________________________

What else is going on in Florida? OH, nothing much unusual… just iguanas falling from trees.

However, INDIA takes the cake for bizarre reptile story of the week: Two minor girls were recently married to frogs in a remote village! Even if they were in Florida, though, they’d have no troubles (given that bill were passed), because after the ceremony, the newlywed frogs are released. Virginity intact.

A man decided it was sex discrimination when a Hooter’s restaurant denied him an employment opportunity as a male and has since filed a lawsuit!

A hug at a Milwaukee McDonald’s left a woman $100,000 short.

Then in a more consensual type of “theft”:

A postman was tricked by a sexy “Angela Gates” (really a Nigerian fraudster) through myspace for money and has subsequently sunken into depression after losing £130,000 of his savings. Let this be a warning: if models on social networking sites start asking you for money two weeks into your “friendship” for their mother’s funeral expenses… something’s probably up.

_________________________________________________________________________

Perhaps this dear postman should try striking up a friendship with a RealDoll, who will never ask for money, instead? Men.style.com put out an article on the “Love Doctor” himself, Slade Fiero, who has repaired the dolls for nearly a decade now.

The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy reported last month that their survey results revealed that 20% of all teens have sent a nude photo of themselves to someone electronically.

Here’s some new advice on how not to get caught doing stupid things: if you hit a person and take off, don’t google the accident.

_________________________________________________________________________

But some people like direct confessions, for example, an ex-cannibal called into a radio station recently to confess her old habits. Have a listen.

_________________________________________________________________________

A 30-lb marijuana brick with a street value of $10,500 was delivered by UPS in Denton, Texas mistakenly to an unsuspecting recipient who was, instead, expecting his Sears tools.

_________________________________________________________________________

In more troublesome home repair news-

A woman barricaded her washing machine repairman inside the laundry room telling him that he was not allowed to leave until the appliance had been fixed. The woman claimed, “I felt there was no other option.”

_________________________________________________________________________

Appliances… tools… cutlery… they just cause problems. Read:
A businessman cut off his own finger with a butcher knife in an “act of despair” when a judge refused to settle his 170,000 euro debt and informed him that a portion os his farm needed to be sold.

And yet, some people don’t find such pains to be so burdening, after all. A man stabbed at the York Hotel opted for finishing his beer off at the bar before seeking medical attention.

_________________________________________________________________________

And in my favorite story of the week:
A man named Alfie Carrington is making real efforts to get his flying saucer to replace his car! A professor from UCLA, Richard E. Wirz asserts, “”One of his 100 ideas might actually be helpful. What would you have him do? Sit around watching reruns of ‘Seinfeld?’ We’d be better off with more men like him.” Right he is.
