Ummm... Other?

This Guy Must Be Like Wolverine

Cause i don't know how else he could have still posed a threat to police when his back was broken.

His aunt says he is undergoing major surgery for a broken back and broken heel. While he was lying on the ground, she wonders why Ozark police used an electric stun gun on him up to 19 times. [emphasis mine]

"I'm not an officer, but i don't see the reason for 'Tasering' somebody laying there with a broken back. I don't consider that a threat,"

His dad says the use of the stun gun delayed what would have been immediate surgery by two days.

"The 'Tasering' increased his white blood cell count and caused him to have a temperature so they could not go into the operation."

"He refused to comply with the officers and so the officers had to deploy their Tasers in order to subdue him. He is making incoherent statements; he's also making statements such as, 'Shoot cops, kill cops,' things like that. So there was cause for concern to the officers," said Ozark Police Capt. Thomas Rousset.

Police say although there are several unanswered questions; the reason for the use of a stun gun is not one of them.

"It's a big concern for the officers to keep this guy out of traffic, to keep him from getting hurt," said Rousset.

I'd add Missouri to the list of places i refuse to go to, but since it's one of the landlocked states, it was already on the list.

Too Much Hello Kitty

I feel bad for this guy. I mean, i love Hello Kitty, but i feel bad that his wife subjects him to it to such a degree that the pink (but empty) Kitty house is better than his house now with all his wife's Hello Kitty tschochkes. That's just wrong.

Bat Bra

Miss Hawkins said she got dressed at 7.30am and arrived for work at the Holiday Inn Norwich North, near Norwich International Airport without noticing anything unusual.

"When I was driving to work I felt a slight vibration but I thought it was just my mobile phone in my jacket pocket," she said.

It was not until her lunch break, at midday when she felt a strange movement inside her bra, which had been hanging on her washing line the previous night.

"I plucked up the courage to investigate and I pulled out a little baby bat. I just lost my breath when I saw it and I did not know what it was at first," she said.


The bat in the photo is huge. I'm hoping that's not the same bat she had sitting in her bra for 5 hours cause if it is, one has to ask, why was there so much extra space in her bra?

Some Panda Porn to Tide You Over

Some people have been buying monkeys to substitute for children. My favorite is when the younger woman is talking about her monkey love and the camera switches to the reporter and he has the strangest look of horror or incomprehension on his face.
