TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
46-year-old Andrew Palmer, an Ohio man who was arrested on drug charges after a UPS package full of marijuana arrived at his house while police were there.
Cops had gone to Palmer’s house to search it because they suspected he was dealing drugs.
But he didn’t have any there, so he let them in.
Just as the search was concluding, the doorbell rang and it was a UPS package full of weed.
Palmer was arrested for drug trafficking.
AND THEN THERE’S …..
A high school teacher in West Virginia, who showed his students Fifty Shades of Grey as a reward for good work.
The teacher claims to have not known what the film was about and that he was just showing it because it was popular.
After hearing the news, an assistant principal hustled down to the classroom and stopped it after about 10 minutes.
There’s no word on what kind of discipline he’s facing.
The school principal says, “It was an extreme lack of judgment from an otherwise very capable teacher. [He] didn’t do a background check on the movie or even ask about it.”
OR HOW ABOUT …..
An 18-year-old Minnesota woman, who stole a $2,000 dog from a pet store where she had recently filled out a job application.
Because the teen was a familiar face at the pet store, employees didn’t watch too closely when she came in.
However, soon after she left, they noticed a Yorkie-poo priced at $1,999.99 was missing.
The store manager and owner told police they went to the address on her job application and found her in a car with the puppy.
She apologized but told police she felt sorry for the dog and wanted to take it home.
The woman was being held on suspicion of felony theft.
OKAY, ONE MORE …..
Sportswear brand Under Armour, which is yanking a new t-shirt off the shelves because people said it was offensive.
The “Band of Ballers” shirt featured a design resembling the famous flag raising after the WWII Battle of Iwo Jima.
But instead of a flag, four silhouetted figures in shorts and ball caps are hoisting a basketball hoop.
However, Under Armour’s Facebook page became flooded with negative comments about how disrespectful the shirt design looked.
The brand yanked the shirt from sales and issued an apology.
