Warning: Polar bears do NOT like playing patty-cake

April 12, 2009

The German woman below thought a polar bear at the Berlin Zoo needed a hug. So, she hopped a fence, a “prickly hedge”, and a wall to then jump into the polar bears’ enclosure. She proceeded to swim toward the polar bear when the polar bear did what polar bears do: mauled a weaker, slower potential threat/source of food. Can we already crown the 2009 Idiot of the Year? Huh? Can we?  The woman was pulled out by Berlin Zoo personnel and she remains hospitalized.  Check out the pics and video below.

What a waste: $250,000.00 Ferrari Modena doing a pole dance

October 28, 2008

A young Australian man got a little excited and wrecked his quarter of a million dollar Ferrari today.  Hard to believe but both men walked away from the wreckage.  The Ferrari Modena was 5 yrs. old, so I guess they got their money’s worth.  Both men were sent to the hospital but it is believed they will make full recoveries.

You won’t take $0.02 for sex? Fine, I’ll throw in a lighter and a bicycle.

August 24, 2008

The Lee County Sheriff’s Office says a Bonita Springs man has been arrested after offering undercover deputy who was posing as a prostitute two cents for sex.

Fausino Diaz Hernandez, 46, has been charged with soliciting a prostitute. According to an arrest report, Hernandez offered a female undercover deputy two pennies on Thursday night. Acting Sgt. Matt Chitwood, of the narcotics and vice operations for the Bonita Springs Community Policing unit, said Hernandez offered the undercover deputy other things as well, including cigarette lighters and a bicycle. Hernandez’s arrest was part of a three-hour sting to crack down on prostitution in Bonita Springs. He was one of 10 men arrested during the sting.

Two idiots attempt to cash social security check of dead man while dead man waits patiently in a wheelchair in front of the store.

August 11, 2008

“They didn’t kill the guy. He died of natural causes. But they were all about not letting the situation go to waste,” a police source said. “‘How are we going to cash it? Let’s bring him with us.’ They must watch too many movies.”

The roommate, James O’Hare, and his pal David Dalaia attempted to dress Cintron’s corpse in a pair of pants, a T-shirt and sneakers, police said. When they couldn’t get the pants to his waist, the 65-year-old men threw a jacket over his crotch and wheeled him from his W.52nd St. apartment to a check-cashing outlet around the block on Ninth Ave., police said.

“Witnesses observed Mr. Cintron flopping from side to side and these individuals propping him up as they rolled along,” said NYPD spokesman Paul Browne.

The men left Cintron’s body outside while they went into Pay-O-Matic, where Cintron always cashed his checks, police said.

An employee recognized the name on the $355 check, and when he asked to see Cintron, O’Hare said, “He’s outside. We’ll get him,” according to police.

“They were trying to pass the guy off as alive,” Pay-O-Matic clerk Mariano Galvez told the Daily News. “They just left the body in the chair outside.”

The casual corpse on the sidewalk at 3:45p.m. drew a large crowd, including an on-duty detective who was eating lunch at a restaurant next-door. He reported the incident and called the Emergency Medical Service.

As O’Hare went to get Cintron, an ambulance arrived to cart his remains off to the morgue, police said. Moments later, O’Hare and Dalaia were taken to the Midtown North stationhouse, where last night police were preparing to charge them with check fraud.

A neighbor of the roommates, Jeff Bell, 51, said the pair had lived together for years and that Cintron had Alzheimer’s disease.

1-Legged war veteran comes to aid of mother and baby from 2 thugs……and he’s arrested.

June 15, 2008

Yes, because he was carrying a rusted truncheon (a retractable baton) that wouldn’t even open. Royal Navy veteran Stephen Beerling heard a woman screaming outside of his house at 2:30 a.m. He called 999, the UK version of 911, and rushed out to help the woman, grabbing the truncheon in case he needed it to defend himself or the woman.

He was able to talk to the 2 men harassing the woman and her child. Police arrived and arrested the men but also arrested Beerling for possessing the truncheon, which he hadn’t even removed from his pocket.

Thankfully, no charges will be pressed against this good Samaritan. Of course, in characteristic bureaucratic style, a simple, “Whoops, we really screwed up, sorry,” type of apology or explanation wasn’t issued. Instead, police released the following statement:

Kent Police and Senior Crown Prosecutor Janet Garnon-Williams said in a statement: ‘A decision has been taken jointly to discontinue the case as there is not a realistic prospect of conviction.’

How kind of them…….
