Weird Wednesday

Because there is nothing stranger than the truth:

~In Maryland, two men robbed a funeral home after confusing it with a nearby bank.


~In Arizona, a high school choir teacher found a restaurant which agreed to accommodate her group of 40 students. Unfortunately, the restaurant was Hooters and the teachers in now on administrative leave.

~In Washington state, blood donors who are willing to give a pint of blood receive a coupon for a free pint of beer - after the donation.



~In Sweden, a man on disability was found guilt of fraud after police searched his house and found pictures of him dancing with costumed cartoon characters at an amusement park.

~In Italy, scientists have determined that chickens can count AND have a left/right hand preference.

~In California, the repo people took a woman's car. Unfortunately, they failed to see if any passengers were in the car at the time. The woman's 2 year old son was eventually returned unharmed.

~Finally, enjoy this electric car currently in the the Detroit Auto Show.
It's said to be the only car which may not fit you after lunch.

What a terrific way to refuel after a few days of frenzy, with three to go!!!

At least I don't feel quite so stupid now :)

Don't you want to smack some sense into some people? And that skinny car, is there a model for days when you are not feeling so skinny? Kind of like "fat pants"?

I have the urge to donate blood all of a sudden...

Oh how funny!!! I did hear about the hooters incident, still I don't know the issue with this. The kids have to learn anatomy at some point. right?

I read about the beer for blood drive and have to say I just don't get it. They would have been better off to offer a nice piece of chocolate cake--now that would even get me there to donate some blood!

That car??? Would not fit me BEFORE lunch!
Even if I were 50 pounds lighter, I think I would not put myself in it...I live in California where it's dangerous to drive a real honest to goodness metal car, let alone a cute little fiberglass one seater!

I like that one of those acts takes place in my current home (MD) and one in my former (AZ). What can I say, I pick winners.
