McGross – 17-year-old Stacey Irvine has eaten McNuggets every day for the past 15 years, and admits she’s never touched fruit or greens. A diet that resulted in her developing anemia and swollen veins in her tongue causeing her to pass out during school. Despite the fact that she needed to be held in intensive care and given intravenous vitamins to counteract the damage, she’s not about to nix the nuggets. Stacey says, “I first tasted chicken nuggets when I was two. I loved them so much I just couldn’t face even trying other foods. Mum gave up giving me anything else years ago.”

A pole that voters will love – A mayoral election in Italy will be decided by the poles, and not the polls — because the two main candidates are planning a pole-dancing contest as part of the campaign. Amandha Fox and Luana Borgia, both of whom have worked in the adult film industry, are vying to be mayor of the town ofTaranto. While the pair faces other opposition, they’re the only ones to accept the offer to reveal their positions in public. Ms. Fox says she’s happy to take part, noting, “I want voters to see the real me.”  She’d better hope there’s more men than women voters!

When the owner of the merchandise called the stolen phone, Jones answered and offered to set up a meeting to return the stuff “for a price,” and even offered to throw in the pot as a bonus. They agreed, but instead of going to the ATM, they headed to police, who arrested Jones on charges of breaking and entering a motor vehicle, larceny and misdemeanor marijuana possession
