WTF Wednesday

Yep, it's that time again!  That day of the week when I share with you the happenings that have caused me to scratch my head and say "What the f*ck?"

In Stoughton, MA, uninvited guests at a baby shower resulted in a brawl where bottles and punches were flying when the police arrived.  Officers called the scene a "nightmare" and said that in the crowd of 200 people skirmishes were breaking out everywhere, and they were faced with trying to protect children who were present and get the brawlers under control.  Four male adults and a 14 year old boy are facing a variety of charges including disorderly conduct, assaulting an officer, and resisting arrest.

What ever happened the baby showers where a group of lady-friends gathered to play a few silly games and eat cake?


A Washington County, Maine, prison clerk and her boss are accused of misappropriating funds that were intended to make life more bearable for the inmates.  The account, which usually runs a balance of $50,000 to $60,000, upon investigation was found to have been pilfered for personal purchases.  Records show clerk Karina Richardson purchased push-up bras, a bustier, a bridesmaid gown. a blazer and several dresses, in addition to dvds, and books.  Richardson said she thought she had a clothing budget allowance, but officials say that because she is a non-uniform prison employee, she does not qualify for a clothing allowance.  Richardson further defended herself that her appearance is important to her job and the inmates benefited from her purchases.  The review committee wasn't on board with her defense, and she was fired.  Her supervisor is still under investigation.  Because she lives in a small town (East Machias, ME) Richardson believes her "reputation has been ruined over a bra" and she will be unable to "get a fair shake." 

I suppose we could admire the fact that she thought the push up bras would raise the inmates morale along with her boobs!  I'm not sure where the bridesmaid gown fit into the picture!


A Utah woman had an unexpected bedroom visitor at 3:00 a.m. over the weekend.  Wanda Denhalter was awakened by a loud rumbling, and rolled to the other side of the bed, away from the sound.  A 12' x 9' x 9" rocked came rolling down a ridge in her back yard and crashed into the house.  Denhalter
suffered a broken jaw and sternum in the incident.

Sounds like she very nearly missed being "rocked to sleep" permanently!


Police in central Florida say a man bit off his girlfriend's thumb in a dispute while driving her to work at Taco Bell. He spat the thumb onto the floorboards of the car.  Doctors were unable to reattach the thumb.  

I guess her hitch-hiking days may be over. Seems the "Rule of thumb" should apply here, somewhere.

Well, that's it for this week's head scratching!

He bit off her thumb?
That's horrible!
As for the rock, I see a clear reason for building a rock proof fence a few metres away from your house. She is so lucky to have survived that.

Brian Miller said...

Thumb tacos, anyone?

Talk about getting stoned! That poor woman in Utah is one lucky woman for not getting killed. A bit more luck and this wouldn't have happened.

My wife's bitten me pretty hard before (don't ask), but I can't ever imagine being bitten so hard you can just take a thumb right off. How did he get through the bone? ... You know, on second thought, I don't want to know...

Pat said...

A brawl at the baby shower? Perhaps they didn't like the baby name chosen? ;)

I've heard of "biting one's head off" in a fight, never a thumb!
