The Barrel-Monster, while awesome, results in criminal charges for its creator

June 14, 2009

JUNE 12–A North Carolina man is facing criminal charges for creating an amusing piece of public art from construction barrels. Joseph Carnevale, 21, was nabbed Wednesday after a Raleigh Police Department investigation determined that he was responsible for the work (seen below) constructed May 31 on a roadway adjacent to North Carolina State University. Carnevale, pictured in the mug shot at right, was charged with misdemeanor larceny for allegedly building his orange monster from materials pilfered from a construction site. According to an arrest warrant, Carnevale “destroyed three road blocking barrels by cutting and screwing them together to form a statue.” Police estimated that Carnevale’s artwork caused $360 in damages to Hamlett Associates, the North Carolina construction company that owned the barrels. Carnevale is scheduled for a July 21 court appearance in Wake County. (2 pages)

Three Wolf Moon tshirt: magical powers will be yours

Order yours today from Amazon for anywhere from $9.14 – $15.59.  Read one satisfied customer’s review:

This item has wolves on it which makes it intrinsically sweet and worth 5 stars by itself, but once I tried it on, that’s when the magic happened. After checking to ensure that the shirt would properly cover my girth, I walked from my trailer to Wal-mart with the shirt on and was immediately approached by women. The women knew from the wolves on my shirt that I, like a wolf, am a mysterious loner who knows how to ‘howl at the moon’ from time to time (if you catch my drift!). The women that approached me wanted to know if I would be their boyfriend and/or give them money for something they called mehth. I told them no, because they didn’t have enough teeth, and frankly a man with a wolf-shirt shouldn’t settle for the first thing that comes to him.

I arrived at Wal-mart, mounted my courtesy-scooter (walking is such a drag!) sitting side saddle so that my wolves would show. While I was browsing tube socks, I could hear aroused asthmatic breathing behind me. I turned around to see a slightly sweaty dream in sweatpants and flip-flops standing there. She told me she liked the wolves on my shirt, I told her I wanted to howl at her moon. She offered me a swig from her mountain dew, and I drove my scooter, with her shuffling along side out the door and into the rest of our lives. Thank you wolf shirt.

Pros: Fits my girthy frame, has wolves on it, attracts women
Cons: Only 3 wolves (could probably use a few more on the ‘guns’), cannot see wolves when sitting with arms crossed, wolves would have been better if they glowed in the dark.

I suspect the shirt may have been targeted by some merry pranksters.  Or maybe I lack faith in the power of the 3 Wolves?  Either way, there are 100’s of funny reviews here.  Check them out.

Thanks to Pye for tipping us to this fantastic product.

Do you think we can trick guys into getting dragons tattooed on their faces? Yes. Yes we can.

October 13, 2008

Meet Nanang, 30, and Bambang, 40, two Indonesian men who were tricked into getting dragons tattooed on their faces. The two men were told by their village chief Sawiyono that he received a text message from a government official offering them work as Jakarta intelligence officers. One of the conditions of employment was, you guessed it, getting their faces inked. The result is below.

The village chief eventually realized it was a hoax and has offered to help the men have the tattoos removed. The person behind the hoax is believed to have been a “mystic” as the men said they felt “half-conscious” while getting the tattoos. Apparently, the Indonesian word for liquor store clerk is slightly different than it is here in the U.S.

UTRECHT, Netherlands (AP) — Dutch police say a man who pushed his exposed buttocks against a restaurant window as a joke was injured when the glass broke and lacerated his behind.

Authorities say a man, 21, and two others had run down a street Sunday morning with their pants pulled down. The man pushed his behind against the window of a restaurant when it broke and cut him.

The injured man was treated for his injuries at a nearby hospital. The cafe owner decided not to press charges after the men agreed to pay for the broken window.
