the chicken dance with an extra side of funky

Florida felon Mark Cruz, was car­ry­ing an unreg­is­tered .22-caliber pis­tol and it fell out of his pocket.  Unfor­tu­nately it went off when it hit the ground and he shot him­self in the leg.  Cruz then turned up at an area hos­pi­tal where he was unco­op­er­a­tive with police inves­ti­gat­ing the inci­dent. Cruz refused to say where the gun was — telling police he threw it in an undis­closed lake. Cruz was charged with being a felon in pos­ses­sion of a firearm, car­ry­ing a con­cealed firearm and destroy­ing phys­i­cal evidence.

A woman in the for­mer Soviet repub­lic of Geor­gia is so close to her son that she shares a bot­tle of vodka with him every day — even though he’s been dead for 18 years. Joni Bakaradze died at age 22, and his mom decided imme­di­ately that she didn’t want to bury or cre­mate his body, because she wanted his infant son to grow up and “see what kind of father he had.” So, she placed Joni’s corpse into a cof­fin equipped with a glass view­ing win­dow and tried a num­ber of preser­va­tion meth­ods.  She says, “I had a dream once. Some­body was telling me to wake up and start using vodka to care for the body. I have been using…spirit liq­uid poul­tices since then. You must not leave the body with­out them dur­ing [the] night, because it will turn black.”

Chicken danceA per­for­mance artist was arrested after putting an extra saucy spin on the chicken dance — by show­ing up at the Eif­fel Tower to boo­gie down with a live rooster tied to his…er…McNugget?  South African native Steven Cohen then treated tourists to a 10-minute dance rou­tine.  Police showed up at the scene to arrest him, lead­ing his lawyer to say, “It’s a dis­grace. With this per­for­mance, Steven Cohen wanted to evoke his sit­u­a­tion, split between two coun­tries.”  Like which came 1st the chicken or the egg-head?
