Jail house rock - Never let it be said that if you get thrown in jail in Aca­pulco, you won’t have fun!  Mex­i­can author­i­ties con­ducted a sur­prise search of the Aca­pulco pen­i­ten­tiary yes­ter­day morn­ing and found 19 pros­ti­tutes, two sacks of mar­i­juana, 100 fight­ing cocks, dozens of tele­vi­sions, and, yes, two pea­cocks, amidst other con­tra­band, the AP reports. The pea­cocks were “pets,” accord­ing to a state spokesman, who didn’t explain how they wound up inside in the first place.

Oh brother!  Will you marry me? - A South African cou­ple got the shock of their life, when, after five years of dat­ing, they dis­cov­ered they are actu­ally brother and sis­ter!  To make mat­ters worse they are expect­ing their first child!  Their par­ents sep­a­rated when they were only 8 months old, and each par­ent took cus­tody of a child.  The cou­ple, who wish to remain anony­mous, never even knew they had a sib­ling!  It wasn’t until the first fam­ily meet­ing, to cel­e­brate their upcom­ing nup­tials, that the truth was revealed.  They have cho­sen to sep­a­rate, but have not decided how to tell the child when he grows up.  Mom, dad.  This is mom…holy ***#!

 Mix­ing his meat and veg­gies - Din­ers at an upscale Florida steak­house are prob­a­bly turn­ing a lit­tle bit green over news about the way some employ­ees were prep­ping their greens. Reg­gie Williams, a line cook at the­Boca Raton loca­tion of Morton’s Steak­house, filed a law­suit against his employer because he says he was dis­ci­plined for report­ing a fel­low chef for “plac­ing stalks of aspara­gus inside his under­wear which were then plated up for unsus­pect­ing pay­ing cus­tomers. In court papers, Williams’ lawyer called the whole scene “unques­tion­ably unhy­gienic.”  That’s it???  Unhygenic??
