  • Come they told him....ba ra pa pa RUM..!

    Florida women disarm intruder with ham sandwich and rum
    TAMPA, Florida (AP) - Confronted with an armed intruder in their
    home, two women plied him with a ham sandwich and rum until he
    became groggy and passed out.
    Police arrived and arrested Alfred Joseph Sweet, 52, to end the
    five-hour episode.
    Cathy Ord, 60, and Rose Bucher, 63, said they tried to befriend
    the man after he burst through their kitchen window with a
    sawed-off shotgun Tuesday night.
    They made him a sandwich, gave him a bottle of rum and suggested
    he shower and shave so he could "sort of be disguised in his
    getaway," Ord said.
    "We just treated him with kindness," Bucher said.
    She said she had offered Sweet cash and the keys to her
    Cadillac, but he just sat with them, holding his gun. The intruder
    never said what he wanted, the women said.

    • October 31, 2003 --And speaking of dogs' sex woes, a toy pooch with which Elvis Presley simulated sex during a 1957 Las Vegas show has been sold to a fan for $4,700. Rebecca Hooper, of Cheshire, England, says her new souvenir became famous when RCA Records presented it to the King as a gift and he pretended to make love to it. Fans were so whipped up by the sight, they refused to leave after the show ended, prompting concert bosses to announce for the very first time, "Elvis has left the building."

        TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Immigrant smugglers trying to fool law
        enforcement officials have painted vehicles to look like a Federal
        Express van and even U.S. Border Patrol vehicles.
        This week, they tried again - using one painted to look like a
        Phoenix TV news truck.
        Agents tipped to a home in Naco believed to be harboring illegal
        immigrants watched as 10 people climbed into a Ford Explorer and a
        Isuzu pickup truck.
        The sides and front of the Explorer were painted with a large
        "12" and other station insignia on the sides, including the
        phrase "12 Stands for Local News."
        "On the back side, there was a black door; it looks really good
        from the rest of the sides," Border Patrol spokesman Andy Adame
        said.
        Bert Sass, a producer at the station, KPNX-TV in Phoenix, said
        he was unaware of any vehicle having been reported stolen from the
        station. A call to the station's news director was not immediately
        returned.
        Agents on Tuesday found five undocumented immigrants in each
        vehicle and charged each driver with felony alien smuggling, Adame
        said.

        • November 1, 2003 -- You'll have to shed more than your inhibitions to take part in karaoke at the Berlin Station Café in Berlin, Conn. Owner Marty St. Pierre, as a joke, began advertising "Naked Karaoke" about a month ago, and now has a sign-up sheet listing eager vocalist-exhibitionists. But the town has warned St. Pierre he faces a fine and arrest if he goes ahead. He said he plans to sue, so stay tuned.

            • November 2, 2003 -- They might hate French diplomacy, but Americans apparently won't let political protest or ideology get in the way of imbibing the better wines the continent has to offer. Despite organized threats to boycott French products when Paris opposed the U.S.-led war in Iraq, Americans overtook Germans as the biggest spenders on France's Bordeaux wines in the 2002-03 sales year.

              • November 3, 2003 -- A female columnist at the Northwestern University school paper in Illinois has sparked a fury by claiming she's the only girl on campus who doesn't own a vibrator. Rachel Bertsche wrote, "Women are so proud to display their vibrator of choice. Every girl I talked to was excited to tell me all about her vibrator and why it was the best one out there. Be it the Rabbit, the Silver Bullet, the Pocket Rocket."Bertsche insists a battery-operated device "just doesn't cut it."

                • Zoo visitor swatted while feeding a bear
                  Monday, November 03, 2003

                  A woman trying to feed an apple to a caged Alaskan Kodiak bear named Buddy at Space Farms Zoo and Museum in Wantage sustained hand injuries when she reached into the animal's cage yesterday, zoo officials and police said.

                  Gail Stern, 54, of Hopatcong had been throwing apples to Buddy and another 1,300-pound Alaskan Kodiak bear named Matilda about 2 p.m. when one of the apples hit the bars on the cage and bounced back, police said.

                  Stern scaled a 4-foot chain- link fence designed to keep visitors away from the bear cage, retrieved the wayward apple and attempted to place it in Buddy's cage, according to the State Police and zoo co- owner Parker Space.

                  Buddy swiped at the apple and caused severe cuts to Stern's right hand, police said. She was taken to Morristown Memorial Hospital for treatment, police said.

                  Stern told State Trooper F. Nobile that she fed the bears apples "because she thought they were vegetarians and didn't like meat," according to a police report. No charges have been filed, police said.

                  • Sing along........

                    MONTREAL (Reuters) - The lawyer for a man convicted
                    of shooting and killing a policeman apologized Monday for
                    singing the Bob Marley hit "I Shot The Sheriff" as he was
                    leaving the courtroom.
                    Despite the apology, the Quebec Law Society has opened an
                    disciplinary investigation against defense lawyer Christian
                    Gauthier, while the Montreal police union is planning to make a
                    formal complaint.
                    "I'm sincerely sorry to know today that family members (of
                    the victim) and policemen heard me," Gauthier told Radio-Canada
                    television.
                    "If I hurt them, if I added to their plight, I'm sincerely
                    sorry. I didn't think about it, and if I had, I wouldn't have
                    sang," he said.
                    Gauthier was leaving the courthouse during a break in the
                    murder trial of his client, Stephane Boucher, last week when
                    his rendition of "I Shot The Sheriff", a cut on Marley's 1973
                    album "Burnin"', was heard by reporters and police.
                    "I shot the sheriff, but I swear it was in self-defense,"
                    the lawyer sang while pacing a corridor.
                    "It's the story of my client," he replied when a journalist
                    warned him that his performance had been caught on tape.
                    His client was later sentenced to 25 years in jail for
                    shooting and killing policeman Benoit L'Ecuyer on a busy
                    Montreal highway in February last year. Boucher said he killed
                    the officer in defense after being shot at while trying to
                    escape.
                    Disciplinary action against the lawyer could range from a
                    fine to disbarment.

                    • November 4, 2003 -- Score one for free speech. A court in Montana has ruled that kids have the right to ride their school bus and shout "Penis!" over and over again. Bus driver James Campbell, 62,had been charged with assault for hitting a 12-year-old boy who refused to stop saying the word, because it was a "scientific" term, not a derogatory one. The court agreed to drop the charge if Campbell stays out of trouble for a year, but added that he had no right to quash the student's behavior.

                          • Staying with the theme

                            PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (AP) - A popular karaoke performer was
                            hospitalized after his jealous wife tried - but failed - to cut off
                            his penis while he slept Wednesday, Phnom Penh police said.
                            Kan Bun Hou, 26, was asleep when his wife, Ma Len, attacked him
                            with a razor blade, said Touch Sarin, a Phnom Penh police chief.
                            Police were looking for the woman, who fled after the attack.
                            "The injury is not severe. It could have been worse if she had
                            used scissors," he said. "His wound is treatable."
                            The attack apparently stemmed from Kan Bun Hou's popularity as a
                            karaoke performer. The couple had fought the day before.
                            "He's a handsome man and used to party a lot at night," Touch
                            Sarin said.
                            In August, a man was allegedly killed by his wife after she
                            squeezed his testicles until he fainted and then tied his neck to a
                            bed with a scarf. The woman, who said her husband used to beat her,
                            turned herself in to the police.

                              out "sweets" to classmates that turned out to be ecstasy,
                              cocaine and heroin pills, police said.
                              The drugs were confiscated by a suspicious teacher before
                              any were consumed at the primary school in Hilversum, southeast

                                fish with mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
                                Leo Van Aert, 57, was hosting a party at his home near the
                                Belgian port of Antwerp when his wife noticed the koi -- a
                                spotted Japanese carp -- floating on the surface of the garden
                                pond, the Gazet Van Antwerpen said.
                                Van Aert said the 24-inch long fish was "acting funny",
                                swimming and jumping frantically before stopping dead in the
                                water.
                                He figured the koi had had a heart attack and took it out
                                of the water to try to resuscitate it, giving it heart massages
                                before joining lips with the fish.
                                "After 15 minutes, the fish started to move again so I put
                                him in the pond ... but when he fell over again I again applied
                                mouth-to-mouth and heart massages," he said. "That's when the
                                fish recovered".
