He Should've Had a V-8
A British man who was red-faced after being busted with a lady of the evening came up with a saucy excuse for cops insisting she was just selling him some tomatoes.
The man, whose name was not released, was spotted picking up the woman off a corner and stopping at an ATM, leading officers to pull him over for questioning. He said he simply popped in to withdraw 20 pounds – or about 35 bucks – because he needed to buy tomatoes before going home, an excuse that law enforcement didn't buy.
Officer Stacey Paterson said, "I’ve heard some excuses before, but in the 10 years that I have been a police officer I have never heard a [john] covering up his crimes by claiming to be buying tomatoes!"
If you've ever wanted to call the cops after walking into a public restroom that stank to high heaven, you should move to Kentucky, where a guy just got arrested for leaving behind an awful smell ... by tossing a skunk into the room and bolting.
Kevin Kibert walked into Lee's Food Mart with a trash bag in his hand and headed straight for the men's room, which aroused the suspicion of workers, who went inside and found a frightened baby skunk, who promptly let loose a stream of ... skunkiness. The store's manager said, "When he came out of the restroom, he looked at another employee and said, 'I'm sorry man' and left."
Kibert admits he'd been feuding with a worker at the store, but denies raising the stink, saying, "That wasn't how I get even. It wouldn't be no skunk, lord no. Why didn't it spray me? Even if I did and had to and walked away, it would have got me."
He's being charged with criminal mischief. (WKYT)
A Pennsylvania man has wired his toaster to send him a tweet when his toast is done.
Hans Scharler put a switch on the outside of his toaster that senses when the slider is down and the toaster is on, and when it's up and done toasting. He then connected the switch to a terminal board, a resistor, and some alligator clips.
Now his toaster live tweets "Toasting" and "Done Toasting."
Scharler's "Twitter toast" account has more than 2,000 followers. (Boston.com)
