Emergency responders in Sweden who were rushing to the scene of a reported gas leak found out that there was something fishy at the scene – literally.
The call, which resulted in the evacuation of a Stockholm suburb, turned up nothing more explosive than a bucket of fermented herring known as Surströmming – a notoriously stinky concoction popular at fall festivals in the Scandinavian country.
A firefighter called to the scene told reporters. “They’ve got gas in the building, so I find it a bit strange that they called us. They ought to know what it smells like when you turn on a gas stove. It doesn’t smell like Surströmming at all.” (Register U.K.)
A Florida woman stepped into a whole mess of trouble when she decided to end a custody battle with her boyfriend by beating him – with his own prosthetic leg.
Brandon Fleming, who lost his own lower leg in a lawn mower accident when he was just seven years old, says that Jadian Hatfield came to his home and tried to walk off with their two-year-old – and brought two male friends as backup. Fleming attempted to prevent her from taking the boy when his ex attacked him, pulling off his prosthetic and hitting him with it.
She was able to get away, but cops soon caught up with her, charging her with aggravated assault, domestic violence and other crimes. (WEAR)
