Bun in the oven?  Not even close - The saints who work in emer­gency rooms bear wit­ness to things that most of could never even dream up. For exam­ple, one woman was admit­ted to the ER com­plain­ing of abdom­i­nal pain. When doc­tors took a closer look they dis­cov­ered an entire chicken…not in her stomach….She explained that she was not able to have chil­dren and was hop­ing the chicken would turn into a baby. Maybe she just wasn’t cook­ing her chicken/baby at the proper temperature.

Lit­tle Miss Make a Mess - Car­ole Green was fined $1,000 in July by a court inLeav­en­worth County,Kan., for lit­ter­ing the prop­erty of the same Bon­ner Springs res­i­dent “most after­noons” for the past two years. Green apol­o­gized and said the charge was a com­plete sur­prise. She said when she starts out in her SUV every day, and drinks a bot­tle of tea, it just hap­pens that she fin­ishes it at about the same spot on her jour­ney — in front of Gary Bukaty’s prop­erty — and that’s where she tosses the bottle.

Hog n Jog & back again - The 21-year-old Cana­dian guy had a burger and at least two mugs of beer before sneak­ing out of a restau­rant inVan­cou­ver. When his con­science got the best of them, he wan­dered into the gas sta­tion next door and held a screw­driver to the neck of the atten­dant until he got some cash — some of which he used to pay his tab. While he got away, he returned to the eatery less than an hour later for another brewski, at which point he was arrested on bur­glary charges.
