TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
Don Stair, an Arkansas man who chastised NBC’s Little Rock affiliate for changing its station’s peacock logo to rainbow colors.
Only problem is, NBC didn’t change its logo. It’s been rainbow colored since 1986.
Stair posted the following on Facebook, “Your changing your station logo with the colors of gays is a disgrace. Just stay out of it. Your integrity is ruined. ABC is my choice in the future for all Little Rock station viewing. Shame on you!”
KARK 4 News fired back, “We didn’t change or logo, Don, Same logo as always.”
AND THEN THERE’S …..
A woman in Yorkshire, England, who called 999, England’s version of 911, because she got a bad haircut.
She told the cops it was a mess and wanted legal advice about what to do.
They didn’t give her any, but they were nice enough not to arrest her for misusing the system.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
James Montano, 29, who was too distracted by his GPS to realize a drawbridge in Florida was opening, and became an unwilling stuntman.
Montano said he was looking at his GPS unit while driving across the bridge and did not see the stop arm in the down position until he crashed through it.
Montano was cited for reckless driving and he and a passenger were treated for minor injuries, police said.
The bridge was closed for about five hours while crews worked to repair damage to the safety arm designed to prevent what Montano did.
OKAY, ONE MORE …..
Marquis Whipple, a Florida man who was arrested after he stole a car, then tried to sell it back to the victim.
The victim reported his car missing several weeks ago and had given up hope of getting it back.
He got a call from Whipple, who said he’d give it back for 200 bucks.
The victim agreed and also contacted police.
At the exchange, the victim was replaced by undercover cops and Whipple was arrested.
