WTF Wednesday

As you who've been around this blog for a while know, every now and then something in the news causes me to scratch my head and ask "What the f*ck?"  When that happens, of course I have to share with my readers!

Here are this week's "head-scratchers:"

In  1999 an Ellsworth, Maine mail carrier was sentenced to 6 months in jail for stealing women's panties.  When a lady on his mail route reported her suspicions to the police, a video camera was set up in her bedroom, and a large package was mailed to her address.  Based on the video evidence (yes, he was photoed pilfering panties!) a search of his home "uncovered" the missing undies, plus over 150 undelivered, opened mail.  There were packages from Victoria's Secret, panties, bras, as well as items from adult entertainment distributors.

Well, he's been at it again!  This time the thong thief stole metal pipes and wiring from a house.  No explanation was given as to why he switched from snatching silk to swiping steel....

A woman in Baton Rouge, LA, put up a unique display of Christmas lights:


She chose to "flip her neighbor the finger" because she believes her neighbor stole her dog.  She wants to continue to leave the display "flipped" on, despite threats of arrest from the police.  It's now becoming a court case, with the American Civil Liberties Union coming to her defense.

In Brazil, prison guards were surprised to see a cat, wrapped with tape, walk through the prison gates.  Closer inspection discovered the cat was carrying a drill, a saw, a cellphone, a cellphone charger, and a memory card.  All 263 inmates are suspects in the plot.  It's not certain if the case will be solved, as the cat isn't talking!

19 1954 a boy received a bike as a gift.  Upset and embarrassed that it was a girl's bike, he took it out into the woods and ditched it.   Mother Nature did the rest:

 
Now people spin the front wheel for good luck; it still turns!

And that's enough head-scratchin' for today!

That silly boy could have traded the bike for a boy's model at a pawn shop or secondhand shop. What a waste.
The others have me shaking my head.

Brian Miller said...

Fun, fun stories, Eva, but the bike picture is really cool. I have seen it before but attached to a different story. Yours is much more believable.
Have a great week!

I am sure the cat thought she could get away with it. Thanks for all the mind candy today.

Stephen Hayes said...

Love the cat story. I wonder what it was bribed with to make it turn to a life of crime.

Just Keepin It Real, Folks! said...

Great minds think alike. I also posted today about the lady givin' her neighbors the middle finger.

Theresa said...

OMG on the bike. That is awesome! And the pantie stealing fella? Ewwwww.

fishducky said...

You made me laugh again, Eva!!

Paula Jones said...

Call me bad, but I kind of like the lights!

Charlotte Crawley said...

Great stories. Even one from Louisiana. That is not my front yard. But I'm not so sure that I'm above doing that.

Jane said...

I lol'd so much when I saw that middle finger story in the news :) She's got some chutzpah, if nothing else! That panty thief has issues.

A Beer For The Shower said...

I'm just amazed, not only that the cat was willing to carry anything, but that it actually was trying to get to the prisoners. I can't even get my cat to come to me when I have something for her...

B. Jenkins said...

Woah woah woah about the middle finger Christmas lights! LOL! Stopping in from SITS!

Megan said...

Wow, no one in my neighborhood goes all out with lights like that. I'm impressed.

Flipping on the light display takes care of flipping off the neighbor.

Pat said...

I love the bike in a tree!
