An Indiana man put in a bid for the title of world's most polite burglar when he broke into a woman's home and began folding her laundry before cooking himself dinner.
Ashley Murray says she came home to find Keith Davis in her kitchen, hovering over the stove sauteing a pan of chicken and onions. When she looked further, she found he'd done chores and decked out the sofa with a sheet and pillowcases.
When cops responded to her call, Davis insisted he was in his own home, and the woman was actually the one trespassing -- but the deputies didn't buy the excuse. Murray isn't sure about pressing charges, since, as she puts it, "He drunk up my orange juice, but it's cool because he swept up my floor and folded my clothes."
A Kansas college student got a lesson about reading between the lines when she opened up a textbook that she'd ordered online -- only to find about $400 worth of cocaine stashed inside.
Sophia Stockton freaked out when she opened up the copy of Terrorism: Challenges, Perspectives and Issues and found a bag of white powder -- which she assumed was anthrax. When she turned it over to police, they sent the powder off for testing, only to call her back and ask, "You didn't happen to order cocaine with your book, did you?"
Stockton got to keep the book, but not the coke. The used book emporium that sold it insisted that they had no idea how the drugs got there.

A British woman is in big trouble with her doctors after decades of eating nothing but pizza.
Claire Simmons says that she has a violent physical reaction if she tries to eat anything other than plain cheese pizza and hasn't tasted anything else for more than two decades. But now doctors are warning that her condition known as Selective Eating Disorder, could be putting her life at risk by heightening her risk of stroke and heart attack.
She insists she's not merely picky, saying, "I'm actually scared of fruit and vegetables. I get so angry when people think I'm being faddy, this is a real medical condition."
