Stripped of our youth

bananaBoy, they sure do cel­e­brate their youth dif­fer­ently in Rus­sia than we do!  Appar­ently, male strip­pers per­formed at their Day of Youth fes­tiv­i­ties!  The eight strip­pers per­formed dur­ing cel­e­bra­tions at a pub­lic park attended by sev­eral thou­sand peo­ple. “You are our hope, our tower of strength, the future of our region,” some­one said dur­ing the  ded­i­ca­tion per­for­mance to the young peo­ple. The strip­pers then took the stage and dis­robed before feed­ing bananas to girls and women in the assem­bled crowd.

Police announced they seized 22 tons of expired meat from a Viet­namese smug­gling net­work includ­ing expired chicken feet, tripe and throat that were des­tined for the Chi­nese food mar­ket.  Inves­ti­ga­tors told a state-run News Agency the expired prod­ucts included chicken feet dat­ing back to 1967.  Li Jian­min, a local secu­rity chief, said the decades-old chicken feet had been treated with chem­i­cals “to kill bac­te­ria, pro­long the expiry date” and make the prod­ucts “look white and big.”

Cops ini­tially went to the home of Jef­frey John Pollock’s girl­friend to cuff him for refus­ing to leave the premises despite a court order keep­ing him away. As he was being placed in the back of the patrol car, Pol­lock asked one of the deputies to fetch the brief­case he’d left inside, which he did. After retriev­ing the brief­case, the deputy asked Pol­lock to give him the code to open it, but the man ini­tially refused. When the cop said he was pre­pared to bust it open, Pol­lock changed his mind and popped the lock, reveal­ing more than $9,000 in cash and a large amount of mar­i­juana – lead­ing to a slew of other charges.
