Some weeks, when I am searching for my "odd" lesser-reported news, there seems to be some type of common thread. Not this week. I was off to a strong start with stories about boobs though...
Is This Appropriate Attire for a Robbery?
Somewhere in Australia there's a "buxom bandit" on the run. That's what Australian media has dubbed a gas station robber with an affinity for deadly weapons and low-cut shirts.
The local authorities aren't having quite as much fun making sport of the busty thief. (Surely, one of those cops is dying to say "Let's bust her!") She did commit crime with a deadly weapon, after all. She held up a Gold Coast gas station of about $200.00 before taking off with a male accomplice.
Clearly, she isn't a master-mind as criminals go, she had only one gloved hand and touch several objects with the ungloved hand. Plus, she didn't cover her face.
Really, did she need to cover her face when she was wearing that outfit? Who is looking at her face?
Teenager Not "Big" on Family Tradition
A story of out Britain, introduces us the the Marshall family. Mom of nine, Chantal Marshall is in a number of newspapers this week talking about her 14 year old daughter, Britney. Mom is being quotes saying "Britney is going through a funny phase at the moment and saying she doesn't want to get her boobs done."
It seems the family has a tradition that the girls all get breast enhancement surgery. Despite the urging of mom and her four sisters, Britney is not leaning toward "going under the knife" anytime soon.
Her mother, who is a professional psychic, is holding out hope, though. Chantal went on to say," I really love the fake look of my girls and I know Britney will go that way when she is a bit older. I love the idea of us all looking similar and glamorous.
In total, the busty five-some had nearly three litres of silicone put in their breasts in 13 ops.
Only three litres??? I would have guessed more. I am skeptical of Chantal's psychic ability. If she really could see into the future she would have given a couple of her girls the heads up on "how big is too big?
Speaking of Big and Sad
Did all of you hear about the theft of the large fiberglass dinosaur last week up in Montana. If not...let me catch you up.
On June 21st, Dino the Sinclair dinosaur was stolen from the Hi-Noon Crossroads Travel Center in Missoula, Montana.
They were offering a $250 gas card for information leading to the safe return of the 12-foot-long fiberglass dinosaur.
"We just wonder what happened to him," Hi-Noon marketing manager Earl Allen said Friday. "It's a little odd for him to just walk away." He went on to say, "It's not like you can just throw him in the back of a pickup."Initially, when I heard of this story, I thought it was a prank and we would all see a cute pictures of Dino showing up at various places much like the frog or gnome pranks done in the past. (Tell me you aren't aware of these. Seriously??? That is how Travelocity came up with the traveling gnome idea.)
Although, I will admit that hauling around a 12 ft., 100 pound dinosaur might have been a bit trickier than a garden gnome.
But, this is another example of my optimism not being rewarded. The dismembered body of Dino was found in some nearby woods and a decapitated head was found a couple of days later. All of Dino's pieces have been returned and according to the Hi-Noon spokesman, they believe he can be reassembled.
So many questions ....What kind of person steals a 12 ft. dinosaur and how can that go unnoticed??? And what was the point of the decapitating it??? Does this person have dinosaur rage issues? Is this some type of hate crime???
