A dog owner in Florida found out the hard way his pooch was a real hunting dog! Gregory Dale Lanier said that he was tooling down the road when his dog jumped onto the floor and discharged his nine-millimeter weapon, which the owner thought was unloaded. Lanier heard a loud noise, saw smoke, then felt a burning in his leg. Since he was not seriously injured, neither he nor the pup was charged in the incident.
Officials in one Chinese town decided it would be a good idea to show residents that the grass was greener on their side of the fence. So folks in Chengdu province got an early spring when they left their houses in the morning to see the grass all around them a bright shade of green…with paint. One resident, whose mood was supposed to be lifted by the act, said, “When I walked on the green grass the paint came off on my sneakers. What kind of fool tried to beat nature like this?” Town officials defended the action, saying people feel more positive when surrounded by green. Pretty sure it’s the fumes and not the actual paint that makes them happy!
Erik Brown allegedly smashed a young relative man in the face with a burrito from his local Taco Bell, leaving him, according to the police report, with “burrito cheese, sauce and meat all over his clothing and face.” Brown, who admitted to using the snack as a weapon, said that he acted after the 16-year-old victim was disrespectful to his mother and had cursed at the woman. Brown, who threatened to go after the kid again after his release, is scheduled for a hearing on March 20th. Next time it will be a gordita…with fire sauce!
