A Criminal Writes "Y'all Will Never Catch Me" on a Police Department's Facebook

28-year-old Roger Ray Ireland of Edgewater, Maryland has a warrant out for his arrest for violating probation.
And the Anne Arundel County, Maryland police department does something called "Wanted Wednesdays" where they make old-school wanted posters for people with warrants, and posts them on Facebook. Last Wednesday, they posted one for Roger.
But when he found out it was on Facebook, he left a COMMENT on it . . . saying, quote, "Y'all will never catch me."
That clearly made the cops more motivated to catch him. They used a combo of leads and tips and tracked him down in Baltimore the next day.

A Man Drops 140 Pounds . . . By Working at McDonald's?

Want to permanently lose your desire to eat fast food? Here's the best way we can think of: Work at a FAST FOOD place, and see what it looks like before it's served.
27-year-old Colin Moore of Durham, England managed to lose 140 pounds in a year . . . by working at McDonald's.
He got a job at a McDonald's in May of last year, when he weighed 343 pounds. And being at McDonald's, constantly smelling their burgers and being around the food as it was prepared IMMEDIATELY turned him off of fast food.
It inspired him to switch his diet to things like fruit, lean meat, rice cakes, chicken, and vegetables. He lost 18 pounds in his first month as a McDonald's employee . . . and now, just a little over a year later, he's down 140 pounds and weighs 203.

(Daily Mail)

Colin says, quote, "I have nothing against McDonald's, but I like the way I am now and I know if I ate the burgers there's no way I would stay at this weight."
He's still working at McDonald's . . . although now that his story is getting some press, I can't imagine their PR department is going to want him working there much longer.

Eight Things You May Not Have Known About Those Old "TGIF" Shows

We have a list of things you may not have known about those "TGIF" shows, like "Full House", "Step By Step", "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch", "Family Matters" and "Boy Meets World". Here they are:
1. On "Full House", Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were losing different teeth at different times, so they had to wear fake teeth towards the end of the series to keep up the facade that Michelle Tanner was one person.
2. Comet, the Tanners' Golden Retriever on "Full House", also played the original Buddy in the movie "Air Bud".
3. "Step By Step" was set in the same television universe as "Family Matters". In fact, Steve Urkel appeared in the second episode of the series. Urkel also made a cameo appearance on "Full House".
4. Sabrina Spellman from "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch" is actually based on a comic book character from the long-running "Archie" comics franchise.
5. "Family Matters" was actually a spinoff from ABC's "Perfect Strangers".
6. Even though Urkel became the most iconic character on "Family Matters", he was originally only supposed to be in one episode.
7. Michelle Thomas, the actress who played Urkel's girlfriend, died shortly after the series ended at the age of 30 after losing a battle to cancer.
8. Over the course of "Boy Meets World", Topanga's parents were played by five different actors.

(You can find those and dozens more, here. They're conveniently broken down by show.)

Someone's Terrorizing a Neighborhood in Oregon by Vandalizing Cars With Pastries

Maybe this is just my donut-loving side talking . . . but I'm less offended by this crime and more offended by the grotesque waste of delicious baked goods.
There's a neighborhood in Hillsboro, Oregon that's being TERRORIZED right now . . . by someone vandalizing cars with PASTRIES.
One time they smeared a maple bar on a car. Another time they left some donuts on a windshield. Then one time they moved away from pastries and dumped potato salad on a car. Overall, at least a DOZEN cars have been vandalized with food.
The police think some kids are behind this . . . and they've added extra patrols in the neighborhood to try to catch them.
A police lieutenant named Mike Rouches told reporters, quote, "In my 25 years in police services, I have never investigated or seen a criminal mischief involving pastries."

A Guy Robs a Fast Food Joint, Then Goes Back to Eat . . . Wearing the Same "Mupp

28-year-old Daniel Warn of Bloomington, California must be a huge fan of the fast food chain El Pollo Loco. Clearly he thinks El Pollo Loco is both irresistibly delicious AND a lucrative business.
Daniel broke into his favorite El Pollo Loco in Costa Mesa, California last week by crawling through the drive thru window in the middle of the night. And he tore the place apart looking for cash . . . but couldn't find any.
He was wearing a bright green shirt and a hat featuring Animal from "The Muppets" at the time . . . and security cameras got a great look at him and his questionable fashion choices.
Then, a few hours later, he went BACK to the same El Pollo Loco to get LUNCH . . . WITHOUT changing his clothes.

The employees recognized his shirt and his "Muppets" hat, called the cops, and Daniel was arrested.

Texas Tech reinstates Nigel Bethel

Texas Tech University has decided to reinstate Nigel Bethel II and allow him to rejoin the football program.

The decision came after a Lubbock County Grand Jury refused to charge Bethel for allegedly punching Lady Raider Amber Battle during a June 28 pick-up basketball game at the Student Recreation Center.

The grand jury took the extraordinary step of writing directly to Texas Tech Athletic Director Kirby Hocutt, recommending that Bethel be reinstated to the program.

The letter said, "We desire to see Mr. Bethel's scholarship re-instated. If he is re-instated, it is our belief that his consequences should not be greater than those of Ms. Battle."

Bethel was removed from the football program the day after the incident. Battle will be suspended for the month of November.
Bethel will be suspended for three games.

Battle admitted that she "initiated the first contact" and apologized to "Nigel, the Texas Tech community, my teammates, coaches and fans" in a statement released on July 4.

You Become Friends With People So Similar to You in DNA, They Could Be Your Cous

Your friends aren't your friends by accident . . . your DNA might have FORCED you to pick them.

A new study from the University of California, San Diego and Yale University found that people gravitate toward other people who have similar DNA.

So even though you aren't relatives with your friends, about 1% of your genes match. That doesn't SOUND like a lot, but it really is . . . it's the same amount you'd share with someone who's your fourth cousin.

The researchers say, quote, "We have more DNA in common with the people we pick as friends than we do with strangers . . . humans choose individuals who resemble them on a [genetic] level."

(ABC News)
The most common genes friends share is in their sense of smell . . . which might be one thing that draws you together. So, if you like the smell of coffee, you might bond with a person over going to get coffee all the time.

Customs Agents Catch a Couple Smuggling Live Parrots Inside a Stuffed Elmo Doll

There is so much about this smuggling attempt that's confusing.

Customs agents at the Mexican border in San Luis, Arizona caught a couple trying to smuggle contraband into the U.S. earlier this month. But it wasn't drugs . . . no, these people were trying to smuggle in two live PARROTS.

And they'd hidden the two live parrots inside a stuffed ELMO doll.

The customs agents X-rayed the Elmo doll and found the parrots inside. It's illegal to bring animals into the country because they could have diseases, so the parrots were quarantined and are being held by the Department of Agriculture.

All things considered, the couple got off about as easy as you can for smuggling . . . it was just a $300 fine.

A Guy Was Gored by a Bull... After Writing a Book on How to Not Get Gored Durin

If you ask me, the best way to avoid getting gored during the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain is . . . NOT ATTEND the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain. Anyone who does is just asking for it.
But a 32-year-old author from Chicago named Bill Hillman actually co-authored a BOOK on the subject. It's called, "Fiesta: How to Survive the Bulls of Pamplona", and it came out last month. But we're thinking sales MIGHT take a hit after this.
Bill is in Spain right now, attending the festival for his tenth year in a row. And yesterday . . . HE GOT GORED BY A BULL.
A 1,300-pound bull got him twice in the right thigh. He was listed in serious condition and had to have surgery.
Technically, his advice on how to survive the event is still valid. His doctors say the bull JUST missed an artery, and they expect Bill to make a full recovery.

A Thief Was Caught Because He Wore a Shirt with His Company's Phone Number on It

We hear about a lot of criminals being identified by scars or tattoos. But this is the first time we've heard THIS.

On Monday, a 55-year-old man named Perry Martin broke into two cars outside a home in Delray Beach, Florida, near Fort Lauderdale. And someone's security camera caught him on tape.

When police watched the video, they could clearly see writing on his t-shirt that said, quote, "I Got Wood LLC", followed by a phone number. So they called the number . . . and his BOSS picked up.

It turned out that when Perry broke into the cars, he was wearing his WORK SHIRT for a company that installs flooring. And his boss was immediately able to identify him in the video.

He's charged with burglary, grand theft, and violating his probation.

A Drunk Guy Claims His Dog Drove Him to the Store

You KNOW you can't leave your dog in the car when it's this hot out, no matter what. Even if you're this guy . . . and your dog is your designated driver.

Police in Oconee County, Georgia got a call on Wednesday about a dog locked in a car outside of a convenience store. They came and got the dog out. It was 99 degrees at the time and when they measured, it was 123 degrees inside the car.

The car and the dog both belonged to 60-year-old Wesley Mark Terrell. When he got out of the store, he was clearly drunk.

The cops told him he'd be arrested for a DUI . . . and he told them he shouldn't be, since the DOG had driven him to the store.

For some reason, they didn't buy that . . . and he was arrested for both a DUI and animal cruelty. The dog was turned over to animal control.

A 56-Year-Old Woman Pulls a Knife on a 25-Year-Old Who Didn't Want to Hook Up

If the genders in this story were reversed, it would be horrifying. But as it stands, it's high comedy, so just roll with it and don't feel guilty.
56-year-old Elizabeth Highley of Jensen Beach, Florida and 25-year-old Crue Finley were together a few weeks ago at Elizabeth's house, getting drunk on wine.
Apparently Elizabeth thought it was a date, but Crue thought they were just friends . . . which became an issue when she tried to talk him into having SEX.
He wasn't into it . . . not only is she more than twice his age, but in her mugshot she looks a little like GARY BUSEY.
She got so angry that she grabbed her CANE and a hunting KNIFE, and started chasing Crue around the house. When he got out, she chased him down the street.
Luckily he saw a cop in a convenience store parking lot and flagged him down . . . just as Elizabeth was running up with the knife. She was arrested and charged with felony aggravated assault.

A Guy Flicks His Cigarette Out the Car . . . And It Blows Back In and Sets the C

Here's another reason you shouldn't flick cigarette butts out your car window. Besides the fact that it's littering, it's rude, and you don't want birds to eat them and get BIRD CANCER, if that's a thing.
48-year-old Travis Paul Smith of Elsmere, Delaware was driving on Sunday night and flicked a lit cigarette out of his red Chevy Monte Carlo. But the wind somehow blew the cigarette back INTO his car . . . and set the interior on FIRE.
The entire car instantly went up in flames, but luckily two people ran over and pulled Travis out of the car and saved his life.
Unfortunately he'd already been burned pretty badly, and he's still in the hospital with severe second- and third-degree burns.

A Man Is Arrested For Drunk Driving on a Snowmobile . . . in 84-Degree Weather

During the winter, you'll see a few stories about people who get busted for drunk driving on snowmobiles. You very rarely see someone get busted for driving one in the SUMMER.
A 43-year-old man from Lansing, Michigan was clearly hammered on Sunday night and was driving his SNOWMOBILE around. Unfortunately he ended up crashing into a tree.
He was arrested for a DUI . . . his third one, but his first that wasn't in a car.

And at the time he was arrested, it was 84 degrees outside.

A Woman Is Charged With Arson After She Tries to Set a Spider on Fire in Her Hou

We appreciate that this woman wanted to serve some HILLBILLY JUSTICE to a spider that dared to enter her house.  But next time, maybe just step.
34-year-old Ginny Griffith of Hutchinson, Kansas spotted a spider in her house around 1:30 A.M. on Friday . . . and apparently decided to teach it a lesson.
So she threw some towels on top of it, and used her cigarette lighter to set them on FIRE.
We're not sure if she managed to kill the spider in the process . . . but she DID manage to set her house on fire.
The fire department came and put the fire out before it spread too far, and Ginny was arrested for aggravated arson.  That's a pretty serious charge, but she lives in a duplex and there were people in the other half when she set the fire.

Snapchat isn't just for selfies anymore – it could get you a job

A new pub in Dublin is asking potential hires to send the bar a Snapchat in lieu of a résumé.

Sober Lane, seeking young and hip future employees, hopes to get quick and creative first impressions of hopeful chefs, servers and bartenders via the smartphone app.

"Recruitment agencies, CV's, References - BORING!" reads Sober Lane's Facebook post. "We will only be taking applications through Snapchat." 
The company says it hopes to find people who can make a connection in under 15 seconds, a prized skill for anyone in the service industry. Of course, by prioritizing Snapchat savvy millennials over a more experienced bartenders who may not own smartphones, it's clear that social media trumps know-how – at least in Sober Lane's first round "interview."
Employers are already hiring via LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. Will Snapchat be the next social media to utilize during the job hunt?
