It's that time again, when I peruse the news and stumble across articles that make me scratch my head and ask, "What the f*ck were they thinking??? And then I share those items with you. You're welcome.
There's More Than One Way to Enjoy Beer.
You've heard of ear plugs? How about "ear chugs?" Below is a link to a Utube video of a woman who chugs beer with a straw through her ear! Don't try this at home, folks. Although doctors say there is a connection between the ear canal and the throat, there would have to be a hole in the ear drum for this to work, plus, the "imbiber" would be risking infection, pain, and possible hearing loss. But if you are curious, click here to see the video.
Not The Mother's Day For Which She Had Hoped...
Robert Golba's mother spent the better part of Mother's Day pinned under her unconscious 51 year-old son. Robert was allegedly intoxicated when he fell on his 81 year-old mother and breaking her hip during an argument and passed out.
The woman's hip was broken in three places, their legs had become intertwined in the fall, and she was unable to extricate herself. She was eventually discovered by other family members who contacted the authorities. Golba, who was uncooperative with police, was charged with violation of a protection order his mother had filed against him.
Ah, there's nothing like family!
Senior Housing Hookers?
A 76 year-old man, James Perham, and his 66 year-old neighbor, Cheryl Chaney, have been arrested for running a prostitution ring in a senior citizens housing complex. Police were called in when residents complained of drunks and drug addicts passing out in the corridors, and leaving used condoms in the rec room.
An undercover operation by the police led to Perham and Chaney, the former admitting that he had been providing crack-addicted prostitutes to some of the "younger" residents. Chaney and Perham have since been evicted from the New Jersey senior housing facility.
Hey, the government is trying to make cuts in social security and medicare, I guess they just decided to embark on an after retirement career...pimping!
