Superman not so super

superman7A Super­man cos­tumed clad Patrick Camp­bell of Wasilla, Alaska was “wav­ing at traf­fic” while stand­ing in the mid­dle of the Parks High­way.  Appar­ently cops found this less than amus­ing and pulled Camp­bell off the road.  Cops later found out the rea­son why Camp­bell was feel­ing so “super.”  Turns out he was in pos­ses­sion of an undis­closed amount of heroin, and was arrested.  Now, where exactly could a man in a full bod­ied span­dex suit hide those drugs? 

Some res­i­dents of a Swedish town said they are not amused by a 26-foot-tall sculp­ture of a male fig­ure uri­nat­ing into a river.The “Bad Bad Boy” sculp­ture, by Finnish artist Tommi Toija, was installed as part of the Ore­bro Open Art exhi­bi­tion.  A 34-year-old res­i­dent, Anna said she “really hates” the sculp­ture. How­ever, another res­i­dent, Ebba, 62, said she was slightly amused by the work.” Toi­jas said there is no cor­rect way to inter­pret his sculp­ture. “For me, it’s just a guy pee­ing in the river, no more, no less.”

A Cana­dian said he had both pride and regret after swim­ming the across Detroit River, and back, after drink­ing eight beers. John Morillo, 47, under­took the cross-border chal­lenge to show “I could do it.” His actions sparked an inter­na­tional res­cue effort after a neigh­bor, watch­ing the event, lost sight of him after about a half hour, and called police. He swam from Wind­sor to Detroit’s Renais­sance Cen­ter, left the water, and dove back in for the return trip. Just before he arrived back in Canada he was picked up by Cana­dian author­i­ties in a boat. He admit­ted it was “really stu­pid.”  Morillo was arrested for intox­i­ca­tion in a pub­lic place, and will likely be cited for swim­ming in a ship­ping chan­nel and fined up to $40,000. He added he has been barred from city water­front prop­erty, and his mother told him, “You’re just so stu­pid” before she hung up on him.
