TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
A woman in Ohio, who accidentally dropped her two-year-old son in the cheetah pit at the zoo.
The woman was dangling her two-year-old son over a cheetah pit at the Metroparks Zoo in Cleveland, and dropped him.
The child fell about 10 feet and hurt his leg. Thankfully none of the wild cats attacked him.
The mother could be facing child endangerment charges.
AND THEN THERE’S …..
David Eli Lingafelter, 20, who was arrested for robbing a Subway restaurant in Washington after police caught him carrying a bag with a dollar sign on it, just like in the cartoons.
Police stopped Lingafelter because he matched the description of the man who robbed a Subway.
Their suspicions were helped by the bag he was carrying.
He was arrested and charged with robbery.
Maybe he’ll share a jail cell with Yosemite Sam.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
Micha Stunz, 45, a German man who started getting silicone injections to make his junk bigger several years ago and now it’s so big he can barely use it.
The problem isn’t length, it’s girth. Stunz says it now weighs between 7.5 – 9.5 lbs. and knows that because he uses his kitchen scale to weigh it.
He’s now considering a reduction.
OKAY, ONE MORE …..
A man in Iowa who tried to steal a truck outside a home and ended up with nothing but a bag of dog poop.
When the homeowner heard him breaking into the vehicle, the man fled, taking nothing but a tied up plastic bag that was in the bed of the truck.
The owner told police it was a bag of poop from a trip to the park earlier that day.
Police say they haven’t identified any suspects in the crime, but that he or she could face third-degree burglary charges.
