A Washington state man went the extra mile to deliver an unusual marriage proposal, but that almost didn’t cut it. Loren Lentz used his tractor to carve the romantic request into his land, using letters that were a good 150 yards long. He then took his ladyfriend Jody up in a small plane to survey the scene, only to find that he’d carved the “J” in her name pointing in the wrong direction — even though he wasn’t even plowed behind the plow. Jody took the bull by the horns and accepted — on the condition she remain in charge of plowing the wedding invitations.

An Austrian museum says a man took the concept of life imitating art to an extreme when he suddenly stripped at an exhibition of pictures and sculptures portraying nude men through the ages. Vienna’s Leopold Museum says that after taking his clothes off, the man calmly sauntered through the exhibition, dressing again only after a security guard asked him to do so. Museum spokesman Klaus Pokorny said other visitors did not appear disturbed. The “Nude Men” exhibition had attracted more than 65,000 visitors — all of them dressed except for one.
