With the help of animal rescuers, a cat in New Zealand is getting the help it needs to kick its McDonald’s addiction. The feline named Frankie was abandoned at a Mickey D’s in the Waikato Region, where he lived off hamburger patties, chicken nuggets and fries for at least a year.
Rescuer Jessica Watson says, “When I first took him home he refused to eat anything because it wasn’t McDonald’s. I seriously considered going back there to get him a burger. I would put pet food down and he would give me a look like, ‘What is that?’” Fortunately, Frankie is now enjoying a McDonald’s-free diet and maintaining a healthy kitty lifestyle. (Yahoo)
A New Mexico man was hauled off by cops after he was spotted giving a woman a Big Mac as a way to convince her to enjoy his Whopper.
Donald Jones reportedly picked up a woman on a street corner that's known to be a gathering ground for prostitutes and their customers, and took his car to the drive-thru window of a nearby McDonald's, where he bought a bag of food. The pair then headed for a park where Jones told police he gave the woman her meal and asked how she would reimburse him.
Cops confronted the couple in mid-act and saw the woman hastily trying to pull her pants on. She admitted she was trading her affection for fast food, and both face a variety of charges, including prostitution and possession of narcotics. (KOB)
A Florida woman who tried to pray for a stranger in a Wal-Mart parking lot ended up being preyed on when the woman stole her purse as they were talking to the man upstairs.
Deborah Porter said she was concerned about Alicia Sportelli's well being when Sportelli approached her at the store, and suggested they pray together. Sportelli agreed, but as Porter closed her eyes to meditate, she bolted – followed by a gold pickup truck that had been idling nearby. By the time Porter knew what was going on, her purse was gone, along with the cash and prescription drugs inside.
A deputy on routine patrol ended up stopping the pickup because its license place was illegally covered in cloth, and found Porter's possessions inside. Michael Baker, who was driving the truck, and Sportelli both confessed to the crime at the scene. (WWSB)
