Strange but Fun, sorta

I thought it might be good to look at some of the strange stories in the news from this time last year…

State Sen. Ralph Shortey introduced a bill to stop that awful practice that food companies have, y'know, using human fetuses to flavor up their foods. Well, just because no company actually does it is not really the point. They might, because that's what it said on the Internet Shortey explained –he was serious…

There's a Sri Lankan Eye Donation Society that supplies many of the world's transplant eyeballs. EDS is glad to have eyeballs upon death, but it also gathers some from the living, from people who believe that giving up their spare eye (who needs two?) will ensure a good afterlife.

Tina Cafarelli admitted she bought $64 worth of soda, then immediately fed the cans into a nickel-a-can redemption machine at a supermarket, just to get the cash. (OK, she stole a welfare card to buy the soda, but, still…)

Misty Kullman, 25, was busted for prostitution. She supposedly performed some unnamed act for a guy for -six bucks. (Bonus: He paid with 3 $1s, a $2, and some coins.)

If you donated money to Haitian relief, it's fortunate if even a quarter of your dollar has ever found its way to the poor -three years later. The only exception: Doctors Without Borders.

Live Long and Prosper....
