Rodeo Rick scours the web each weekday for the best and weirdest news headlines from around the world. We proudly present you our Redneck Headlines and the stories behind them.
Here are today's Redneck Headlines:
#1 - E-BAY E-DIOT!
#2 - OFFICER CABBIE, I PRESUME
#3 - M-I-C... SEE YOU BEHIND BARS
A California man got some positive, but unwanted feedback after selling an old safe on E-Bay not realizing there was more than $25,000 in cash stashed inside.
James Labreque put the safe, which had been sitting around unused, up for grabs because he had no room for it and he didn't have the combination in order to open it. The buyer gave Labreque a thumbs-up on the transaction and shared the news about the little cash bonus on the auction site.
A frustrated Labreque asked for a cut of the dough, but was told "finders keepers." He says, "If I was in that situation, I'd say, 'Here man, I found this money. I'll give you half of it.'"
OFFICER CABBIE, I PRESUME?
Most police departments use "To protect and serve" as their motto but one Florida man thought he could convince his local deputies to change that to "Leave the driving to us."
Hector Felix Jr. called 911 in the town of Port St. Lucie to report that he'd been carjacked and while he was unharmed, he desperately needed a ride to his home in Hollywood, about 100 miles away. When pressed for more information on the individual who stole his vehicle, Felix admitted the story was bogus, but still asked for a ride home.
He got his lift but only as far as the Port St. Lucie jail, where he was charged with false reporting of a crime.
M-I-C ... SEE YOU BEHIND BARS!
An Ohio elementary school was far from the happiest place on earth after officials put it on lockdown over a parent who came to visit while dressed as Mickey Mouse.
The woman wanted to surprise her daughter's class by wearing the outfit for a Valentine's Day party, but failed to tell the school's principal about the costume, which she showed up wearing and then changed out of in a restroom.
Superintendent Dante Zambrini said that an administrator freaked out because, "It was a case of, Mickey Mouse was here, and then he was missing."
