La Cucaracha Corn


Joes apt roachesAt least one mil­lion cock­roaches have report­edly escaped from a farm in China where they were being bred for use in tra­di­tional med­i­cine.  The cock­roaches fled the facil­ity for sur­round­ing corn­fields after an “unknown per­pe­tra­tor” destroyed the plas­tic green­house where they were raised. Yikes, we’ll I won’t be eat­ing any corn from China soon.

A Con­necti­cut man, James Pace Sr., 81, of New Haven told police who responded to Yale-New Haven Hos­pi­tal Sat­ur­day evening he was armed with a .22 cal­iber rifle as he waited for a wild rac­coon who con­tin­u­ally scratched at his back door.  While wait­ing he sneezed, fell out of his chair and acci­den­tally shot him­self in the shin hence his hos­pi­tal visit.  Police said his injuries are not life-threatening.

 Author­i­ties said Ken­neth Web­ster Enlow was caught hid­ing in the sep­tic tank of a park out­house and peep­ing at a 7-year-old girl and her mother.  Fire­fight­ers pulled Enlow from the tank and cleaned him off with a fire hose. He told police his girl­friend hit him in the head with a tire iron and pushed him into the tank, but did not have any injuries con­sis­tent with the story.  He’s been sen­tenced to 1 year in jail.  No word if he’s on toi­let detail.
