How Many Calories in Love?

You can’t list ‘love’ as a food ingredient. That’s the word from the FDA, after a Massachusetts bakery listed the emotion as part of the production of their locally-famous granola.

In a letter to the business, the FDA said: “Love is not a common or usual name or an ingredient, and is considered to be intervening material.”

You Were Right There!

Always make sure to fill up the getaway car. That’s a memo Sean Harris never got.

After he robbed a gas station, the 33-year-old South Bend, Indiana man was quickly arrested… when he ran out of gas.

He’s charged with robbery and DUI. If stupidity was an arrest-able offense, he’d be charged with that, too.

Chuck E. Don’t Play That

It’s as good as cash in many households… just not at the library.

A Massachusetts man tried to pay his library fine with Chuck E. Cheese tokens. Since then, dozens have followed suit.

The library finally took to social media to clear up the confusion that the tokens are, in fact, not legal tender, and therefore cannot accepted as fine payments.

Buyer Beware

The cops aren’t your personal Better Business Bureau. One Montana woman found that out the hard way, after she called 911 to report some “bad meth.”

Police say 33-year-old Margery Ann Dayrider gave the Great Falls Police a jingle when the drugs she purchased left a “bad taste in her mouth.” Officers were more than happy to ‘assist’ Dayrider by charging her with felony narcotics possession. Police say the amphetamine connoisseur also had warrants out for her arrest.

In lieu of a $2,500 bond, she’s currently cooling her heels in jail.

Bizarre Standoff with Bear

When a black bear entered his friend’s British Columbia home, an unnamed friend first tried to scare it off by banging pots and pans. When that didn’t work, he tried to intimidate the bear by making himself “large.”

Finally, the man socked the bear in the nose. On his way out, the animal destroyed a screen door.

Police say when the bear came back to the home, he was shot dead to protect the residents.

Foiled Again!

bank-robber

The key to successfully robbing a bank: they have to be open. After trying to shake down a local bank twice after hours, it’s clear one would-be robber didn’t get that memo.

Police in Des Moines, Iowa say security footage shows someone trying to get into the Marine Credit Union. Problem is, both times the bank had closed for the night!

Some employees witnessed the scene, but couldn’t give a good description because of his disguise. The suspect has yet to be caught.
