They call him speedo – Some cops in Florida won’t have a leg to stand on when trying to explain the escape of a cocaine dealer who managed to briefly elude them even on only 1 leg!  Apparently, he opened the door of his car and hopped down the sidewalk at a high rate of speed. Deputies stayed behind and searched his car and found a large bag of marijuana.  The officers ultimately captured Ariosto Ryman and when taken into the station for processing, they also found approximately five ounces of the white powder in his bungholio.

Jesus or George? – A Nebraska woman is selling a Chicken McNugget she says bears a resemblance to President George Washington. Rebekah Speights of Dakota City said she received the item from a Sioux City McDonald’s three years ago and had kept it frozen until Sunday, when a sermon at the Family Worship Center inspired her to sell the item on eBay to benefit the church. The Washington McNugget was listed on eBay Monday and soon received its first bid of $100. The McNugget had a high bid of $321 yesterday.  Jesus on French toast brought in a whopping $894

Gambled and lost – A Pennsylvania man wanted on drug charges had his luck run out after he won $2,500 playing blackjack at a casino near Philadelphia. 34-year-old Mateen Johnson had to produce ID to cash out his winnings — and that’s when he went bust. Casino officials swiped the card and discovered there was a warrant out for his arrest.  Johnson reportedly told police he knew he was going to be arrested soon and was trying to win enough to make bail.
