"They left me there, going through all that stress. They just let me rot," he fumed, adding that workers later told him they thought his cries for help were a prank.
    LMAO, a prank...or they thought he was having a rough delivery.*thinking of that Austin Powers scene*

    • November 6, 2005 -- In the "hell hath no fury" department, we have a Pennsylvania woman who did not win sympathy from a jury, which ordered her to pay $46,200 to her ex for Super Glue-ing his genitals to his abdomen. Gail O'Toole of Murrysville also glued Kenneth Slaby's buttocks together after he fell asleep and scrawled profanity across his back in nail polish. She invited him over after he broke up with the woman for whom he threw O'Toole overboard. "For all the pain and suffering I've been through, and the embarrassment, I don't think it's enough," Slaby complained.

        • November 7, 2005 --The mayor of Las Vegas has proposed a radical way to deal with graffiti vandals — cut off their thumbs. If that's too much, he'll settle for whippings or canings. "[I] believe in a little bit of corporal punishment, going back to the days of yore, where examples have to be shown," Mayor Oscar Goodman said. State education official Howard Rosenberg slammed the suggestion, telling Goodman he should "use his head for something other than a hat rack."

          • November 8, 2005 -- Mark Kassel, who headed the juvenile jail in Will County, Ill., must feel like a real heel this week. The 39-year-old corrections boss abruptly resigned after officials discovered he's involved with an Internet site for foot fetishists. The site, ohmyhose.com, features photos of scantily dressed women in seamed stockings, pantyhose and high-heeled shoes.

            • November 9, 2005 -- A bandit out of Mexican folklore has become the patron saint to drug dealers in Bakersfield, Calif., with some building altars to worship him in their homes, police say. Jesus Malverde, who was hanged as a thief in the early 20th century before, legend says, he began appearing to people in peril to save them, "protects the drug dealer and brings good luck to the drug dealer," Detective Pete Cavazos said. "It might sound comical to others, but they take it very, very seriously."

              • Talk about full frontal stupidity!

                November 12, 2005 -- A fire-eater set a stripper's breasts ablaze at a lap-dancing club in Augsburg, Germany, when he blew flames at her.
                "I shouted at him that he was getting too close, but he didn't stop," she said. "The oil and glitter that I rubbed on my body must have caught on fire." The stripper was treated at a local hospital; the fire-eater was given a suspended sentence for causing her grievous bodily harm.

                  • November 13, 2005 -- Manhattan real-estate prices have nothing on Owen County, Ind. — where county officials are trying to sell a one-square- inch parcel of land for $1,500. In the 1960s, locals had to own real estate to have access to a nearby lake. Officials think that's how the one-square-inch plot outside Bloomington ended up being deeded. After the bank foreclosed, the separate parcel went into a tax sale — where the minimum bid is $1,500. At that rate, an acre would run about $7 billion.

                    • November 14, 2005 -- Inmates at the Falkenburg Road Jail in Brandon, Fla., want to set your mouth on fire. They're marketing the first-ever hot pepper sauce made in prison. Jailhouse Fire consists of habañeros, Scotch bonnets and jalapeños grown on the premises and will sell in stores for $3.25 a bottle. As hot as it is, inmates make a hotter version for themselves. "It's a macho thing," said Allen Boatman, director of the prison's horticulture program.

Entwine the two and you've got the ultimate cheeky Christmas stocking filler," said Jessamy Hawley of British retailer Gadget Candy.

                            • A Somali arrives in Minneapolis as a new immigrant to the United States.

                              He stops the first person he sees walking down the street and says, "Thank you Mr. American for letting me in this country, and giving me housing, food stamps, free medical care and free education!" But the passer-by says "You are mistaken, I am Mexican".

                              The man goes on and encounters another passer-by. "Thank you for having such a beautiful country here in America!" The person says "I no American, I Vietnamese."

                              The new arrival walks further, and the next person he sees he stops, shakes his hand and says "Thank you for the wonderful America!" That person puts up his hand and says "I am from Middle East, I am not an American!"

                              He finally sees a nice lady and asks suspiciously, "Are you an American?" She says, "No, I am from Russia!" So he is puzzled, and asks her, "Where are all the Americans?"

                              The Russian lady looks at her watch, shrugs, and says... "Probably at work!"

                              • November 17, 2005 -- Here's some scary news for companies in Iowa — they can't deny unemployment benefits to workers who've been fired for seeing ghosts. Security guard Wade Gallegos got the ax when he said ghosts haunted the Des Moines neighborhood he patrolled, but his boss couldn't see them. The company then denied him unemployment on the grounds of misconduct. But Judge G. Ken Renegar ruled that, while Gallegos' spooky sightings rendered him "unfit to act as a security guard," seeing ghosts isn't the type of misconduct that can disqualify him from getting benefits.
