Heart attack in a truck – Black Hawk County sheriff’s deputies said the trailer, which was loaded with about $50,000 worth of margarine, was parked overnight at an Elk Run facility to wait until the Cedar Falls Target warehouse had enough space for the spread. The driver discovered Sunday morning that the trailer had been hooked up to another vehicle and driven away.  Now what are the odds that the same people who stole the 5000 tons of corn off that train a few days ago were sitting around thinking, “what the hell are we gonna do with all this corn?” and someone came up with this brilliant idea.

That rug is breathin – A cable TV repairman got quite a surprise when he walked into the basement of a New Jersey home.  There was a 500-pound bear sound asleep on the floor.  The bear had been spotted wandering in the neighborhood but It’s not clear how it got into the home. The bear ambled out of the house before state Fish and Game officials arrived..

 Peeping Tom gets peeped! – A cop in Ohiois facing a pantload of charges after being caught wandering through a hotel parking lot trying to peep into the windows of strangers’ rooms.  A surveillance camera caught Justin Lunsford trying to get an eyeful while giving passersby quite a show of his own. Not satisfied with merely parading around bottomless, the officer also turned the parking lot into his personal litter box, defecating and urinating at various spots to mark his territory. Lunsford has since resigned from the force.
