crazy news articles

Standard

Sometimes you read about some crazy stuff in the news that’s so random it would be hard to invent.  Here’s a few examples I’ve seen lately.

There’s a new crime wave sweeping through San Francisco: potty pyromania.  The toilet torcher has set fire to at least 20 portable toilets at construction sites.  The article states it is “creating a trail of malodorous wreckage and causing an estimated $50,000 in property damage”.  Construction workers are trying to figure out who is committing this vandalism, but they have nothing to go on.  (That’s such a bad joke that it’s almost not worth pointing out.)

Also in the news, a woman in Australia was arrested for having parking fines totaling over $30,000.  (The link to this one expired.)  She accumulated that total with over 700 parking tickets over the last two years.  How could someone accumulate that much in parking tickets?  (I’ve already said the answer — can you figure it out?)  🙂

A man had a friend shoot him in the shoulder so he could skip work and not have to take a drug test.  I guess faking a cough doesn’t work anymore…

What is the world coming to?
