Whizzing away the day - It’s such a drag when you have to press pause on your fun night out in order to go to the bathroom—but one Lon­don bar has solved that prob­lem by installing the world’s first urine-controlled video games in its bath­room. Only male patrons can play so far, as the games are over the uri­nals in the Exhibit Bar. After you play, you can—of course!—tweet your score.   Good God, one more rea­son for men to spend ½ their day in the crapper!

Trade you a rain­bow - Speak­ing of gaming…Alyse Bad­dley ofLogan,Utah, was so sick of hus­band Kyle’s con­stant Inter­net gam­ing that she put him up for sale on Craigslist, say­ing he’s “easy to main­tain, just feed and water every three to five hours. “Bad­dley joked that the price was nego­tiable, but she says she didn’t think she’d get any offers. And then, “Some­one even offered a blue bag of Skittles.”

Mower trou­ble - A Louisiana man Bobby Punch was nabbed after a wit­ness reported see­ing him weav­ing back and forth over a highway’s cen­ter line at a very low speed. He’s also sus­pected of some unau­tho­rized land­scap­ing — for cut­ting down neigh­bor­hood shrubs with his get­away vehi­cle which hap­pened to be a lawn­mower.  Plus, he was 4 times over the legal drink­ing limit.  Punch was hauled in for DUI and dam­ag­ing property.
