Here are a few of this weeks stories that you might of missed.
He's Dead, oh..not so fast
A man in South Africa woke up to find himself in the morgue. Not only was he in a morgue but had been put in the morgue's fridge.
After almost a day (21 hours) employees at the morgue heard shouting from the fridge and thought they had a ghost on their hands. (this is what the article said...I am not making this up)
The morgue employees did what all people that are afraid of ghosts do: they called the cops. Maqolo was quoted as saying he was glad the police had guns in case something wanted to fight with them.
Is it just me or do these morgue employees sound like morons? They put a live guy in the cooler, think they hear a ghost calling out to them and think that cops with guns will in some way be effective against spirits.
Another interesting aspect to this particular article is that it concludes that the "dead" guy's family is happy to have him home.
I am thinking he better watch is back. His loved ones are pretty quick with the "I now pronounce you dead".
Because this story smacks of something that I would just make up..and you have justification to be jumping to that conclusion. Alas, this one isn't one of my "stories". For the article click here
Another Dead Guy
A former Chicago commodities broker that disappeared in 1979 and was since declared LEGALLY dead has been found living under a false name and working at a Las Vegas casino. Authorities say that Arthur Gerald Jones disappeared from Highland Park, IL to escape large gambling debts and trouble with organized crime.
Seventy two year old, Arthur was arrested Tuesday on felony identity theft and fraud charges.
Turns out that Art has been going by the name Joseph Richard Sandelli ever since he went missing.
|Doesn't look dead|
OH OH, some one is in trouble. Who, I am not sure. Is it Arthur? No Art can't be in trouble. He is dead after all and has been since 1986. I am sure Mrs Art Jones wants him to stay dead as she would be on the hook for a whole bunch of social security payments that were paid in error. Is Joseph responsible for Art's problems? If so does Art have to be resurrected from the dead? This could be complicated.
South Carolina Woman To Go To Trial..Oh nuts!
A South Carolina woman will face a jury trial over a $445 ticket written to her after a police chief deemed her "truck testicles" hanging on her vehicle violated the local obscenity laws.
The actual violation was recorded as an obscene bumper sticker. Obviously there isn't an actual violation that includes the words Truck Nutz. The obscene sticker charge covers "displays" that the community could find offensive which can include sexual acts, excretory functions or parts of the human body.
The trial is scheduled for late August. Time will tell if a jury of her peers deem novelty balls to be obscene.
**shaking my head** Oh, Virginia tsk tsk. While I concede to your right to freedom of expression, do you really think that this is the classiest adornment you could put on your ride? Nothing says "high class" quite like plastic testicles.
Get out of jail card
Finally a criminal with some intelligence. Mind you, he isn't using his IQ for the greater good or anything but still...
An inmate in a central Florida jail used a glitch in the facility's phone system to raise his bail money.
Larry kept making calls and hanging up before making any connection until he reached $1250.00. That is the amount he needed to bond himself out of jail.
