    Talking The "News of the Weird" Thread

    OK, I know many of us have the same sense of humor and enjoy reading News of the Weird. So feel free to attach any funny/odd news stories here that you find.

    My first one:

    A Man with a sword breaks into apartment because he thought he was rescuing his female neighbor from a rapist. Instead, the noise he heard was from a porn flick:

    The Article.

    I guess he wanted to be her knight in shining armor.

    Live, Ski, or Die!

    Van Iveren, 39, of Oconomowoc, was charged with criminal trespass, criminal damage and disorderly conduct, all while using a dangerous weapon, and is scheduled to appear in court March 5. Together, the misdemeanor counts carry a maximum sentence of 33 months in jail.
    the only weird thing here is that this guy is being treated like a criminal when he was only trying to help. he should definitely pay for damages to the door. too bad their aren't more folks in the world that would think to save someone from a terrible act of violence. the whole sword thing is a bit off, as is someone playing a porno so loud the neighbors can hear it!

    This one was all over the NY radio talk shows yesterday.

    I agree with Steve...the guy was trying to be a good neighbor even if using a sword to attack the door wasn't all that well planned out.

    In the biggest case of historical irony ever, genealogists finds an ancestor of Rev. Al Sharpton's was a slave owned by relatives of Strom Thurmond.

    Nice one, Beano.

    In the continuing Peanut Butter Saga, there's this gem:

    FTA: "The salmonella scare involving peanut butter has cost Roanoke restaurant owner Doug Robison more than $50 and a batch of fresh brownies."

    I haven't found it necessary to read the rest of the article.

    I am going to think twice about where I park my car.
