Weird News (Week of 06.13.10)

Weird News - 06.13.10
Ho hum. Just another boring week of puppies being tossed at motorcycle gangs, cocaine-addicted funeral directors gyrating in the nude, 60 foot tall flaming Jesuses, library/condiment crime sprees, human head smugglers, nearly indecipherable alien abduction stories, and ice cream man turf wars.
 
If only something strange or mildly humorous would occur.


WEIRD NEWS STORIES OF THE WEEK

German Kid Throws Puppy At Hell's Angels
A German student created a major traffic jam in Bavaria after making a rude gesture at a group of Hell’s Angels motorcycle gang members, hurling a puppy at them and then escaping on a stolen bulldozer. German police say after making his getaway from the Hell’s Angels club, the 26-year-old dumped the bulldozer, causing a 5 km traffic jam near the southern town of Allershausen, local police said.

He then fled to his home nearby where he was apprehended by the police.
Funeral Director Allegedly Knows How To Party
State regulators in Ohio have shut down a funeral home where a director is accused of mishandling a corpse and other misdeeds. The state board that licenses funeral homes outlined a long list of accusations against [the man, including]:

  • Leaving a body unrefrigerated for 13 days
  • Being often naked, half-clothed, intoxicated, or addicted to the use of morphine, cocaine, or other habit-forming or illegal drugs
  • Putting a jacket of a deceased man on in front of the man's family
  • Threatening and harassing employees
  • Failing to sterilize all instruments for embalming
  • Failing to destroy waste materials properly
  • Misappropriation of money from memorial contributions

[The man] said Tuesday that none of the administrative charges are true and that he's being set up by a competitor. He blames this entire situation on another funeral home, claiming they have tried to sabotage his business since opening in 1994.
God Sends Message To Church, Burns Their 6-Story Jesus Statue To The Ground
A six-story-tall statue of Jesus Christ with his arms raised along a highway was struck by lightning in a thunderstorm Monday night and burned to the ground, police said.

The "King of Kings" statue, one of southwest Ohio's most familiar landmarks, had stood since 2004 at the evangelical Solid Rock Church along Interstate 75 in Monroe, just north of Cincinnati. The sculpture, 62 feet tall and 40 feet wide at the base, showed Jesus from the torso up and was nicknamed Touchdown Jesus because of the way the arms were raised. It was made of plastic foam and fiberglass over a steel frame, which is all that remained early Tuesday.
Police Finally Solve String of Vicious, Condiment-Related Crimes
Authorities said a 74-year-old Boise woman arrested after pouring mayonnaise in the Ada County library's book drop box is a person of interest in at least 10 other condiment-related crimes. [The woman] was picked up Sunday at the library, moments after police say she pulled through the outside drive-through and dumped a jar of mayo in the box designated for reading materials.

Boise police say Cassidy is under investigation for other cases of vandalism that started in May 2009. Library employees have reported finding books in the drop box covered in corn syrup and ketchup.
Ice Cream Turf War Escalates With Threats of Violence
Police said an ice-cream vendor threatened another vendor with a knife and told her to get off his turf. The man acknowledged talking with the woman Sunday in a cul-de-sac but denied making threats. Police found a knife in his truck and arrested him for investigation of assault.

The Daily Herald of Everett reported the 51-year-old man appeared in District Court Monday and was ordered held on $25,000 bail. The woman said she didn't think she was violating the unwritten code among vendors about where they sell frozen treats.
Yawn...Dozens Of Human Heads Found On Airplane
Dozens of human heads were intercepted by a Southwest Airlines employee last week, the airline confirmed Thursday. The heads, which were intercepted in Little Rock, Ark., were handed over to local officials who are now investigating whether or not the heads were properly obtained. The package was on its way to the Fort Worth office of Medtronic, a Minnesota-based medical research and technology company, NBC's affiliate in Dallas Fort-Worth reported. Little Rock police handed the package over to the country coroner.

The coroner is currently investigating whether the heads were legally obtained.

"We've come to the conclusion that there is a black market out there for human body parts for research or for whatever reason," Pulaski County coroner Garland Camper told NBC Dallas Fort-Worth. "We just want to make sure these specimens here aren't a part of that black market and underground trade."
Drunk Man Strips To Underwear, Threatens Customers At Grand Opening
An intoxicated man was arrested during Tuesday’s grand opening celebration at Price Chopper for stripping down to his underwear and threatening to kill employees who attempted to escort him from the premises. Employees [say the man] was in front of the store asking customers to “[fucking] dance with him” and then the suspect proceeded to strip down to his underwear, police said.

When store employees tried to remove Cialeglio he allegedly became belligerent, saying things like, “When I get a chance I’m going to bash both of your [fucking] heads in,” and “I’m going to kick your [ass] and I’m going to [fucking] kill you,” according to police. He also attempted to hit the employees who tried to restrain him until police arrived.
As police were transporting Cialeglio to headquarters, he told officers that he was going to bash in the head of those “Price Chopper guys,” according to the arrest report.

During the booking process, he was uncooperative and told police he was going to shoot them.

ALIEN ABDUCTION BLOG OF THE WEEK

Alien Abduction Blog
The New Alien Abduction Blog provides an invaluable service to those who have been abducted/molested by alien beings. Abduction stories are all-too-often dismissed by the general public as "complete bullshit" and "the ravings of braindamaged lunatics", but thankfully NAAB provides these poor befondled souls with news and information regarding alien abduction, as well as an outlet for their shamerage. Here are some excerpts from a few of the most shocking (true) stories. Please be warned that some of these are highly sexual or violent in nature and as such should not be read by small children or Pentecostals.

Martin

"Hi My name is Martin. I was abducted when I was 13 from my bedroom. I did not realize I was abducted till later on in life when I would have flash backs, but now I remember everything so clearly. They did tests on my and even punctured my testicles with small metal objects, I think they drained my human man liquid."

Reuben

"Hello sir my name is Reuben my age is 19 I am having alien abduction experience form the age of 15.
