News of the weird/funny/pointless

Well with Yahoo seemingly required to post new headlines on their homepage every five minutes, it seems ridiculous stories or headlines are inevitable since there is only so much relevant news to go around. There were a couple "good" ones today so I figured I'd just start a thread and update whenever I find something weird/funny/pointless enough. Feel free to add, or not. :-B

So without further ado, here is story # 1:

CHESTER, Pa. - A suburban Philadelphia man is facing animal cruelty charges after allegedly telling his roommates he had run over two kittens with his truck and planned to eat them for dinner...


US man allegedly said he planned to eat 2 kittens

Since I question everything, regardless of it's impact (or lack thereof) on me, here are my questions about this one:

1) How did these kittens survive getting run over? Either they were very tough kittens, or they got run over just a little, or maybe it was some kind of small remote-control truck/toy thing that ran them over.

2) Would this person regularly eat kittens or is it just that his first instinct is to consume any animal he runs over? And did he run them over on purpose?

I assume that I'll never know the answer to these questions but it's fun to wonder...

...and # 2:

MONTREAL - A man who allegedly armed himself with high-powered weapons because he believed elves were stalking him has been granted bail...


Guns, scary elves, and bail; suspect freed

This one I don't really have any questions. The man wanted to protect himself from elves. I think most would agree that guns certainly would help in that situation.

Just kidding. No press is bad press. B-) If I think it's fake though, I can't promise that I won't say anything. O:-) :-D

Not exactly funny but definitely pointless:

The NBA has banned upside-down headbands

I thought the NFL was supposed the be the overbearing league. Talk about sweating the small things. :-°

Personally, I think the new rules on technicals are more absurd. Show one second of emotion and you're T'ed up. Ridiculous.
