A government official in a small Iowa town gave new meaning to the term "member of council" – by taking his junk out of his trousers and waving it at the wife of a constituent during an argument.
Jimmy Brown got into it with voter Eric Vangemert after both men had knocked back a few at a local bar called Joe's Hole. While Vangemert admitted to calling Brown a vulgar name, he says the councilman got physical – which prompted his wife to step in to defuse the situation, only to have Brown unleash his little legislator and say, "This is what a real man looks like."
According to court documents Brown asked Spirit Lake Police Chief Gene Marquez if he was "exempt from the law because I'm a city council member" – a statement Brown now denies. (KHQ)
A man in China's Heifei province found out that a surgery he needed would cost an arm and a leg, so he decided to take matters into his own hands – by amputating his own leg with a saw from his tool shed.
Zheng Yanliang began to experience pain last year and was diagnosed with a life-threatening embolism that he was told would cost thousands to treat. After a doctor warned him that he only had three months to live if he didn't act, the man went home and got out his tools – sawing through the limb while biting down on a piece of wood to keep himself from screaming.
He was successful in treating the leg wound, but now needs a trip to the dentist – since he lost three teeth as a result of biting the wood plank so hard. (Daily Mirror)
There are plenty of people out there who don’t like porn and want it shut down and banned.
Good luck to them – especially considering it’s been around for thousands of years, dating back to the caveman days.
There’s actually an exhibit on display in Brazil that features cave paintings of sex scenes.
That’s right. Caveman porn.
Some historians believe the paintings could have been drawn as many as 29,000 years ago. That’s a lot of years before the Internet was even invented. (Fox News)
Yale University students are dealing with a trespasser who's been tampering with loads of laundry by adding loads of his own – in the form of feces that's been tossed into several dryers full of just-washed clothing.
The culprit, dubbed "the poopetrator" by baffled security personnel, has dropped deuces in four different dryers at one particular facility over the past month, forcing the machines out of service and prompting victims to dump their dump-stained duds. The suspect took things a bit further in his most recent fecal frolic – hanging up a clothesline with soiled clothes in a courtyard.
"Some people think the whole thing is funny; some think it is scary; and everyone thinks it is gross," Yale sophomore David Steiner told the New Haven Register. (WHEC)
A Florida woman was taken into custody on drug possession charges after she couldn't string a cop along and convince him that the bag of weed in her purse was actually a tampon.
The officer initially approached Alisa Stone because he spotted her walking unsteadily in a bike lane on the street, ignoring the sidewalk just a few feet to her left. As he was preparing a written warning, the cop asked if he could check her bag – a decision he made after she voluntarily admitted to having drug arrests on her record.
When Stone reluctantly agreed, he spotted the bag, which she insisted was the feminine hygiene product. Pressed further, she reached in to the bag and pulled out an actual tampon, which was speckled with pot residue, and gave the officer another clear look at the bag of wacky weed. She faces misdemeanor charges. (TC Palm)
