For the love of bacon


bacon loveThey say com­mu­ni­ca­tion and mutual respect are keys for a suc­cess­ful mar­riage, but for two cou­ples in Iowa, a side of bacon couldn’t hurt either. Two cou­ples decided to get mar­ried over the week­end at the Blue Rib­bon Bacon Fes­ti­val in Des Moines. Tricia Snider and Tom Wat­son tied the knot on Sat­ur­day and say they chose the venue because they both enjoy bacon. Craig and April Rouch fol­lowed them. Both cou­ples exchanged vows and agreed to stay together “in good times and bacon.”

Police in Brazil have arrested a man who broke into a mall, stole some clothes and tried to have sex with a mannequin. His bizarre sex romp was cap­tured on sur­veil­lance, which shows him tak­ing a head­less female man­nequin, prop­ping her up against a wall and then hav­ing his way with her. And of course the video was leaked to YouTube.  The man was arrested after he returned to the mall and work­ers rec­og­nized him.

A New Mex­ico woman thought she had just the ticket to out­smart the cops and get out of her own traf­fic ticket … call­ing in a fake crime. Accord­ing to Roswell police, 22-year-old Savana Jimenez called in a fake report of a man with a gun near a con­ve­nience store. Jimenez thought that by doing so, the offi­cer who pulled her over would have to leave and go to the scene of the fake crime. Appar­ently Jimenez called 911 while the offi­cer was check­ing her driver’s license. She later admit­ted to mak­ing up the story to get out of the ticket. She was arrested and charged with obstruction.
