Police in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida are investigating how a .22 handgun ended up in the bottom of a box of toiletries given to a first-grade teacher by a student's grandmother.
High school kids across the UK were given a math test in which one of the questions was unanswerable. The test-givers were forced to contact colleges and universities to explain that there might be a problem with scores.
A restaurant owner in Chicago who hires ex-felons had to go to court to call his establishment Frank's Felons.
This is a good one. Police in Daytona arrested a man who was bicycling down the street at 2 a.m. carrying a 59-inch television balanced between his body and the handlebars.
A man wanted in Delaware was arrested after he used a loud voice to talk on the phone to brag about his escapades. Guests at the hotel where he was staying turned him in.
A Florida farmer decided to let his escaped bull "calm down" before trying to recapture it, but police thought otherwise, and employed eight deputies and a helicopter to corner the animal, sedate it, and tie it to a tree. He was presented with a fine but fought it all the way to the attorney general's office which today dropped all charges.
That's all for now folks. Remember, it's crazy out there!
