Don't spend hours scouring the web for the best and weirdest news from around the world - let us do it! Each weekday we proudly present you with the best Redneck Headlines and the stories behind them.

Here are today's Redneck Headlines:
#1 - Take a Powder!
#2 - Alimony For A Stranger
#3 - Death by Stiletto

A New York man sent a package containing a suspicious white powder to the New York City Fire Department headquarters with a rather unusual explanation for his actions – he wanted to know what the stuff was, too!

An employee at the department found the powder in a small Ziploc bag and called in investigators, who noticed that the sender had attached a note asking for help. He said that the powder was coming from the walls of his garage, and he became concerned when his children started playing with hit.

The note was sent on letterhead that the FDNY makes available to people who want to write in with questions or complaints, and it's still being investigated. (Wall Street Journal)

 

Alimony For A Stranger 

A German man was so against giving alimony money to his ex wife ... that he gave it to a stranger instead.

Police say the man had been arguing with his ex about money and was so fed up that he simply handed $245 to a schoolboy standing outside the bank. The boy was with a friend when the man walked up and handed him the wad of cash, saying, “You can keep that money.”

The boy then went to police, thinking the money was counterfeit. Police said there was no evidence of any crime and the boy is 245 bucks richer. (UPI)

 

Death By Stiletto

You'll often hear women complaining that their high heels are killing them, but Ana Trujillo apparently took it to a whole new level. She allegedly used a stiletto heel to kill her boyfriend.

The 44-year-old was arrested and charged with murder this weekend after police found her boyfriend, Alf Stefan Andersson, dead from multiple stab wounds to his head early Sunday.

The 59-year-old Andersson worked as a research professor at the University of Houston Center for Nuclear Receptors and Cell Signaling. Guess they had their signals crossed. Trujillo is due in court Tuesday morning.
