*Dang, as if being burned by a pot of hot grits is not enough (Wink. Wink. Its a think back thing), an Oregon woman will now serve time in prison for admittedly throwing hot bacon grease on an ex-boyfriend. This, while he was sleeping.
That’s one helluva way to wake somebody up. Sends this body into spasms just thinking about it.
Defense attorney Brian Schmonsees said this about the thought of his client, Shiree Franklin, being in prison, “I’m not particularly happy about it. It’s going to put a good woman in prison.”
Well, I guess he had to say something.

*Well, who’da thunk it? After all these years a cat comes along and proves the myth is true after all.
As it turns out, a Florida feline was hit by a car, buried in front of witnesses, and today has come back from the dead.
Bart the cat shocked the you-know-what out of his owner, Ellis Hutson, who told ABC News, “I was so shocked, I didn’t know really what to do.”
In a statement on its website, the Humane Society of Tampa said, “We have seen many amazing cases at our full-service veterinary clinic, but this situation may take the cake.”

*Carnell Alexander is being pursued by the welfare dept. to reimburse them to the tune of more than $30,000 in the state of Michigan because he was wrongly put down as the father of a child on paperwork in the late 80s. His ex-girlfriend had applied for assistance, and falsely named him as the baby daddy.
Alexander learned of the paternity case against him in 1991, after being stopped for a traffic violation. The police officer called him a dead-beat dad, and he was taken into custody.
“I knew I didn’t have a child so I was kind of blown away,” said Alexander in an interview late last year. A notification was sent to Alexander at a house in Highland Park. Because paperwork had been filed and he did not appear in court, Alexander was assumed to be a negligent father.

*Uh let’s see, you stammer as you peruse the menu while sitting in your car, in line at the Burger King Drive thru. I’ll have a burger, some fries, and instead of ketchup can you give me BBQ sauce, please? Sure, says the voice behind the speaker. And when you get up to the window, there’s a young worker with headphones around her neck, just waiting for you to get your order and drive off so she can finish listening to Ariana Grande. But in the process of her distraction, your burger and fries is still sitting on the counter. But what she has given you instead works just fine. A bag full of cash.
Uh oh, somebody’s gonna get their butt fired!
No one was more surprised than Janelle Jones, who went through the Burger King drive-thru and was handed a bag full of cash instead of her food.

*A gunman has been killed after opening fire on two police officers moments after they were sworn in at a ceremony in a Minneapolis suburb on Monday, officials said. The suspect was shot dead in the New Hope, Minnesota City Hall, according to what Chief Deputy Mike Carlson of the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Department told reporters. The officers were in good condition and were expected to survive, he said.
Some of the incident was captured by cameras inside the council chamber, as an off-camera council member is heard warning, “Get down, get down. Everybody get down.”

*You get the feeling every police officer out there dreads the fact that the all-seeing-eye of a camera has come into existence.
Add to that, the “everyday Joe” can capture them doing just about anything, and there’s nothing the police can do about it.
Offenses that may have been one persons’ word against the officer’s in the past, now take on a whole new dimension.
For example, it will be interesting to hear the story that a San Francisco police officer comes up with, to justify why he shoved a man in a wheelchair into the street.
