That’s a lot of D’oh! –  A London man is about to have a cow — because he created a ball of glue that looks like Homer Simpson, and has found someone willing to spend 300 grand on it!  Christopher Herbert says he came across the sticky blob while cleaning out a cupboard, and was set to toss it when his girlfriend noticed it looked likeSpringfield’s most famous resident. He then decided to list it for sale “as a joke” — one that quickly turned into a potentially huge financial transaction. Herbert admits, “I didn’t think anyone would actually bid for an old bit of dried glue, even one that looks like Homer Simpson.”  

 A warming tail – A Swedish man had quite a “tail” to tell his pals after he went to withdraw some cash from an ATM and ended up with a little something extra.  Gholam Hafezi says he had just about completed his transaction and was waiting for his receipt when something that “looked like a shoelace” popped out instead. He tugged, and soon found he was holding a rodent’s tail!  When he went for help, a worker disassembled the machine’s gears and found the mouse stuck in the gears. Hafezi says he’s not sure if the rodent survived, but says “it was still warm” when he left.

 fb status “dumb & busted” – Atlanta police spokeswoman Kim Jones said CNN security contacted police around 3:30 a.m. Friday to report there was “someone in their secure area newsroom” on the fifth floor of CNN Center. Jones said Aldayne Fearon, And Francis Mutemwa, were arrested and charged with criminal trespass. The spokeswoman said the teenagers gained access to the newsroom by climbing over a ledge from the Omni Hotel. Jones said the teenagers “started working on two computers and at the time of their arrest, they were checking their Facebook pages on those computers,” she said.   Well, facebook may be a time sucker but who knew the time it was sucking was just enough to bust stupid people breaking the law!
