Dirty Laundry


Two broth­ers, in their 50s, got into a heated dis­pute in their Des Moines home.  Jerome Davis ini­tially made and con­sumed three sand­wiches and then made three more within the next hour. Six sand­wiches in such a short period of time angered his brother, who con­fronted Davis about his over-eating.  Davis then allegedly pulled out a fold­ing knife and held it to his brother’s face, threat­en­ing to cut him because he wouldn’t “shut the [exple­tive] up and mind his own busi­ness.”  Davis was charged with assault domes­tic abuse with a weapon and jailed.

Body parts fell from the sky in Saudi Ara­bia yes­ter­day, and no, this is not the plot of a hor­ror movie.

Where a 20-year-old man required assistance…after being trapped in a wash­ing machine dur­ing a game of hide and seek and he was naked. It took police, fire­fight­ers, para­medics and Search and Res­cue a lit­tle while to fig­ure out the best way to free the 20-year old. Res­cuers even­tu­ally they decided that olive oil might do the trick. He was trans­ferred to Goul­burn Val­ley hos­pi­tal for obser­va­tion. Inter­est­ingly, he’s not the only per­son to get stuck in a wash­ing machine while play­ing hide-and-seek. An 11-year-old recently found her­self in a sim­i­lar sit­u­a­tion and the story quickly went viral. For­tu­nately for her, she was clothed.
