Officials in an Ontario city said vandals were responsible for trimming a waterfront bush into a phallic shape. They also said they were very naware of the 10-foot-tall shaped bush until officials were contacted by the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. and workers were dispatched to trim the plant into a “more traditional shrub shape.” Mayor Eddie Francis told the CBC he was not amused by the prank.
The owners of a Florida mall have a bone to pick with a man who prompted an evacuation by wandering around the premises while pouring out a suspicious white powder. The man, whose name was not released, saved the bulk of the ashes for a stop at the shopping center’s Lens Crafters location, leaving a hefty pile. Turns out the ashes were those of his deceased wife and the mall was quite a special place for them both. Lens Crafters?? No criminal charges were filed, although the Sarasota Fire Department may try to recover civil damages from the man.
Petr Svacha was having a leisurely dinner with a pal and had just gotten to the dessert course when the manager informed him that he’d have to leave, despite the fact that he’d only partly finished his chocolate pudding. Svacha reluctantly departed, but came back a short time later armed with a chainsaw – which he used to cut a hole in the door in order to retrieve the dessert! A police spokesman said, “He was overpowered by a waiter and handed over to police.” Svacha now faces up to a year behind bars. I understand…it’s hard to put down a good dessert!
