Bonehead Of The Day:
What do you do when you're trapped? Call for help. Unless you're a shoplifter. In that case, it might not be the smartest move. Joanne Havens hid inside the dressing room at Kohl's in Portage County, Ohio until the store closed. The 35-year-old then walked around the store stealing a variety of items. When she tried to leave, she realized all the exits were locked...so she called 911. Both fortunately and unfortunately for her, police were already on the way because she had tripped alarms inside the store. Source: FOX 8
Stupid News-- Man Pulls Seven Cars With Rope Tied Around His Testicles
Of the many things that testicles are designed for, dragging around heavy weights is certainly not one of them.However, that hasn’t stopped martial arts expert Ye Wei trying to achieve the impossible by channeling the strength of his nut sack.To prove how strong it really is the Thai Chi master pulled seven cars with his testicles last week much to the amazement of the crowd that had gathered to watch him in his hometown of Zibo City in China.The seven Audis have a combined weight of 12.6 tonnes, which is very very heavy, but not heavy enough to stop Ye dragging the vehicles for a total of eight metres.Ye has been practicing his own brand of martial arts that focuses on ‘inner strength’, energy from his spine, as well as his testicles, which he charmingly calls his ‘outer kidneys’.He can be seen in footage tying a rope around his balls, before heaving the linked cars backwards in a straight line.Ye triumphantly declares he has set a record by completing the feat, however, it is unclear for which organization.Link: http://metro.co.uk/2017/04/04/man-pulls-seven-cars-with-rope-tied-around-his-testicles-6553010/ - ixzz4dOPAcPOJ
Teen Takes 93-Year-Old Grandma To Prom
For months, Connor Campbell, a junior at Pinewood Prep in Summerville, South Carolina, has been telling his grandma, Betty Jane Keene, that he wanted to take her to prom. And the pair finally went to the big dance and had a lovely time.Being 93 didn’t slow Grandma down, she had her hair, nails, and makeup done to get ready for the dance and was pretty in pink in her dress. Her grandson wore a matching pale pink tie and vest, and gave Betty Jane a wrist corsage with pink roses. She says she was “really dressed up for a 93 year old.”So what was Grandma’s favorite part of the prom? Dancing with her grandson, of course.“It was wonderful. It was really great,” Keene says. “It was about 100 children at that dance and it was so lovely and they all came up and shook my hand and then I got Connor to dance with me. He’s not a dancer, but I am.”Source: ABC News
