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.

A Pol­ish man said he was dis­tracted by box­ing on TV and mis­took a hot iron for the tele­phone, burn­ing the side of his head! Tomasz Paczkowski, said he was help­ing his wife with house­work while he was off work and he turned on the box­ing chan­nel on the TV, opened a beer and started iron­ing,” he said.“I was really get­ting involved in the box­ing and sud­denly the phone rang and instead of grab­bing the receiver I picked up the iron and put it to my ear.” Paczkowski said he was fur­ther injured when his head struck the door­frame of the bath­room while he was run­ning to pour cold water in his head.The man said he will con­tinue to help his wife with the iron­ing, but not while watch­ing box­ing on TV.
