A Wisconsin man was arrested at a Wal-Mart after trying to make a return that made authorities look at the fine print on the counterfeit bills he'd run off and left inside the printer he was trying to take back.
Jarad Carr got himself into the paper jam when he tried to get a refund for a printer that turned out to have a sheet of funny money stuck inside. When a manager quietly called cops about the matter, Carr tried to bolt, but was restrained and found to have a couple more phony 100-dollar bills in his wallet.
Carr, who threatened officers at the scene, was charged with fraud, forgery and resisting arrest. (Chippewa Herald)
A kindergarten teacher in Sweden has lost her paycheck for putting an unwelcome spin on the Bloody Mary, by bringing a vial of her own blood in and encouraging kids to take a taste.
The teacher, whose name was not released, returned from a scheduled doctor's appointment with the tube and brought it to her class's "sharing time," telling them they could touch it or even take a lick if they wanted to. While she apologized, she was fired immediately, and the remaining blood sent for testing for infectious diseases. (Gawker)
A Missouri couple who won a huge Powerball jackpot last year just watched a chunk of their prize money go straight into the toilet and they couldn't be happier about it.
Mark and Cindy Hill, who took home just over $136 million in winnings in the drawing, decided to donate some of the cash to their tiny hometown in order to pay for a new sewage treatment plant, which otherwise would have taken 25 years to fund. The couple also donated a scholarship fund to the high school they both graduated from.
Cindy says they've decided to do good deeds because, "For some reason, God put it in our hands." (Daily Mail)
