TGIF. No, Really.

If you think you’ve had a bad week, just remember – it could have been worse. Check out what happened to these guys (and gals)…

In Chicago, Illinois, the recent polar vortex and record-breaking low temperatures led some with way too much time on their hands to invent something called the “boiling water challenge”… an activity that consisted of tossing boiling water into the air in the subzero temperatures… and when it “worked,” the water almost instantly turned into vapor and drifted away… and then there were the inevitable cases where

In Melville, Saskatchewan, Canada, a certain individual wanted to put what was turned down by officials who said it is an “unacceptable slogan” on his license plates… what’s weird is he only wanted to put his surname on the plates… So, what would make your surname an “unacceptable slogan”?

In North Olmsted, Ohio, an as-yet-unnamed individual accidentally left his wallet behind while shopping… Lucky for him the wallet was turned over to police… Or then again, maybe it wasn’t so lucky…

In the Bronx, New York, James Truell, 34, was upset with his mother’s inability to come up with the money for his bail… a bail of $250,000 bail at Rikers… while he was awaiting trial for five armed robberies… but he managed to make things worse… and now faces an additional 31 counts of filing a false report and 31 counts of reckless endangerment… How did he manage that while in jail?

In Claremore, Oklahoma, the Rogers County Courthouse had to be closed early recently… after a lawyer entered a courtroom on the third floor… and triggered security concerns

In New Orleans, Louisiana, Phillip Lee, 27, strolled into a Popeyes restaurant here just before noon…  and attempted to steal money from the register… but the register wouldn’t budge… But Phillip didn’t exactly walk away empty-handed

And finally, in St. Louis, Missouri, an unnamed man approached a car here about 7:30 p.m. one recent evening… ordered the 33-year-old male driver to get out of the car… then demanded his keys… The driver got out… but refused to hand over the keys… at which point the would-be carjacker pointed a gun at the victim's feet… and pulled the trigger several times… but the gun wouldn't fire… at which point the victim tossed his car keys… and then both he and the gunman raced to get the keys… but, as they ran, the carjacker dropped his cellphone… at which point the victim picked it up… and then the carjacker… who apparently got to the keys first… dropped into negotiation mode… and then

Have a great weekend, Folks!
