A Russian man has a message for his local traffic court – it’s the end of the world as we know it, so I won’t pay my fine.
The man, whose name was not released, was cited after a minor traffic accident and ordered to pay about $32 in costs, but when he got the bill, he said that the Mayan calendar shows that doomsday is scheduled for December 21st, which would render his payment pointless.
He showed a variety of charts and graphs to prove his point, and even went so far as to say he believes that we might save the planet if we become kinder to each other – and forgive each others debts.
There’s no word on the court’s reaction to the word that it could save the world. (UPI)
British cops were called to a McDonald’s to arrest someone who wasn’t allowed to be there – Ronald McDonald!
50-year-old Ronald McDonald had the silver cuffs slipped on him inside the Golden Arches after he violated a restraining order by following his estranged wife into the restaurant. His ex ignored a few slip-ups in the past, but became cheesed off after watching him slip beer to their teenage son.
He was sentenced to 86 days in prison for the violation. (This Is Kent)
A British woman was taken aback when a sly crook made off with her purse and then returned in with her possessions intact – not so much because of the kindness, but because the thief was a wild fox.
The critter snatched the bag out of Anna Clark’s car, which was in the lot behind her apartment building. The woman’s husband says that he shouted at the animal in an attempt to make it stop, but got only a feeble yelp before it disappeared into the underbrush. Just a few minutes later, however, the fox returned and dropped the purse at Clark’s feet, wallet and cell phone still inside. (The Argus)
