Doing the leg work – A Minnesota woman was kicking up her heels after she felt a mighty tug on her fishing line — until she reeled in.  Beth Krohn was at her vacation home when she made the catch, and initially thought she’d found part of a dead body. When she found the leg was artificial, she started doing some detective work and found the original owner — a woman who’d lost the limb while swimming in the same lake three years ago.  Krohn called Pam Riley to tell her of the find and returned the prosthetic.

 Let it alllll hang out – Vero Beach police said a couple and their teenage daughters flagged down an officer and reported a man exposing himself in the shower area of the HumistonPark beach. The officer arrived to find Robert Johnson, 57, standing nude in view of about 15 to 20 people with his twig and berries “plainly visible. When asked for identification he said, “You can’t take me to jail for this, I’m just out here helping people,” Johnson was arrested and charged with indecent exposure and resisting an officer without violence. It was not clear what sort of help Johnson was offering his fellow beachgoers.

Attention women! A who-who is not a hiding spot.  For anything. – A woman checked into the ER with pelvic pain. Doctors removed a set of car keys from down yonder way. She didn’t want her boyfriend taking the car so she hid them in a place where “he never goes.”  Obviously this is NOT a healthy relationship but what happened to hiding stuff under the bed??
