  • April 17, 2006 -- Captain Gonzo is back

    In other News -- Ohio firefighters dousing a blaze in a new home were confused when the owner suddenly left the scene. "It seemed so strange to me. If it were my home burning, I'd want to be there," said Wadsworth Fire Chief Ralph Copley. A search later turned up $700,000 worth of marijuana plants in the home's basement.

    We're quite sure the neighbors still haven't come down from their high.

        Now that's funny....

        Now. live from the scene...

        Reporter: "Chief.. did the marijuana on fire have any effect on you and your firefighters?"

        Fire Chief: "No... not at all. Hey, you wouldn't happen to have a 40 pound bag of Oreo cookies in your news van, would you?"

        • Brings a new meaning to rehab...im sorry i couldnt resist...im so sorry.
          "There are only two things that i know are infinite, the universe and human stupidity. And im not so sure about the former."

          For all the life of me, i cant see a firefighter going to hell. At least not for very long. We would end up putting out all the fires and annoying the devil too much.

          • Duck Builds Nest Outside Swanky D.C. Hotel. Duck Nests In Planter Near Front Door

            POSTED: 9:35 am EDT April 19, 2006

            WASHINGTON -- A VID, or a very important duck, has built a nest in northwest Washington outside of the Georgetown Ritz-Carlton Hotel.

            Hotel officials said this is the second consecutive year the duck has built her nest outside the ritzy hotel.

            The hotel's concierge is said to be looking after the fowl and her soon-to-be brood. Hotel officials said there are 11 eggs in the nest.

            The hotel has begun giving guests a little rubber ducky when housekeeping turns down the beds, and for the time being, the hotel chef has removed duck from the menu.

            • April 20, 2006 -- Police in Horatio, Ark. were amused at the reaction of a man arrested for repeatedly exposing himself to a female motorist while he stood on a state highway - naked except for a shirt covering his face. "He was worried I was going to charge him with reckless driving for putting his pants back on while driving," said the arresting officer, who busted the brash flasher for indecent exposure and harassment. You might say the guy was trying to give the woman a "bum" steer.

                        • April 22, 2006 -- That legendary sign overlooking Tinseltown might as well be changed to Hollypoop. A mysterious woman has been putting down 150 pounds of birdfeed daily, attracting flocks of pigeons whose droppings cover sidewalks, buildings, cars and the Hollywood Freeway. "You can't paint over it. You can't wash it out with a hose because it turns it into a muddy slurry," griped a local official.

                          • April 23, 2006 -- Boo, matey.
                            A group of specialists from the Rhode Island Paranormal Research group is investigating whether a 150-year-old whaling vessel at Mystic Seaport in neighboring Connecticut is haunted after several visitors reported spotting an apparition below decks. Three separate groups of tourists at the historic seafaring museum last summer say they saw a vision of a man, dressed in 19th-century clothes and chomping on a pipe, working on the whaler Charles W. Morgan. The "ghost" didn't say anything, but nodded at them.

                            • April 23, 2006 -- A rare mistake by Tony Stewart's championship race team cost him a prime starting spot Saturday night at Phoenix International Raceway. Stewart was supposed to start third, but had to move to the back of the field because his crew accidentally returned his qualifying tires to Goodyear and the tire company promptly destroyed them. It meant Stewart could not start the race on the tires he qualified on, a NASCAR requirement. "It was probably too many chefs in the kitchen there working on the tires afterwards," team president J.D. Gibbs said. "One of the guys who has a great heart was trying to help out and wound up messing up. "It's very frustrating, but it's one of those deals ... It's just an innocent mistake and they feel awful about it."

Akos Szabo of Koeszeg, Hungary, broke into the car, adjusted the mirrors and drove home, parking in the driveway - shocking his parents, who had no idea he could drive. When asked why he had taken the car, Akos cheekily answered he just hadn't felt like walking home.
