PLAYING CAT AND MOUSE
A Swedish man had quite a "tail" to tell his pals after he went to withdraw some cash from an ATM and ended up with a little something extra -- a mouse!
Gholam Hafezi says he had just about completed his transaction and was waiting for his receipt when something that "looked like a shoelace" popped out instead. He tugged, and soon found he was holding a rodent's tail which is not as lucky as a rabbit's foot.
When he went for help, a worker disassembled the machine's gears and found the mouse stuck in the gears. Hafezi says he's not sure if the rodent survived, but says "it was still warm" when he left.

A PICTURE IS WORTH ... A SCHOOL SUSPENSION
An Oklahoma student's photo of a substitute teacher sleeping on the job landed in the hands of administrators and led to a swift punishment - for the student!
The ninth-grader, who was not identified, snapped the shot, which shows the male teacher slumped with his eyes closed, and posted it online. School officials saw the picture and jumped into action, calling the boy on the carpet for "using a telecommunications device" during the school day - a violation of district rules.
One parent fumed over the suspension, saying, "They probably took it to an extreme because they caught a teacher doing something they weren't supposed to be doing."
THAT'S A LOT OF D'OH!
A London man is about to have a cow - because he created a ball of glue that looks like Homer Simpson, and has found someone willing to spend 300 grand on it!
Christopher Herbert says he came across the sticky blob while cleaning out a cupboard, and was set to toss it when his girlfriend noticed it looked like Springfield's most famous resident. He then decided to list it for sale "as a joke", one that quickly turned into a potentially huge financial transaction.
Herbert admits, "I didn't think anyone would actually bid for an old bit of dried glue, even one that looks like Homer Simpson."
