Racist Chicken – School officials in a Massachusetts town are apologizing for sending home a lunch menu that listed KKK Chicken Tenders as an option. Superintendent Judith Scannell says the menu was supposed to list KK Chicken Tenders, with the KK standing for a creatively spelled “Krispy, Krunchy,” but an employee mistakenly hit the “K” key one too many times.  A student pointed out to WCVB-TV that it there would’ve been no issue if officials just spelled the words correctly, with the letter C.

Takeing a bite out of crime or at least a patrol car- Deputies tried to subdue a FL man after a homeowner reported that he was going door to door, waving a flashlight and asking that they call 911. When they arrived on the scene, he tossed the flashlight in their direction and began cursing and issuing threats. As cops tried to restrain him, the guy began biting the hood of the cruiser, scraping the paint down to the bare metal in several places. He then asked the officers to kill him, which they declined to do, taking him to a hospital for a psychiatric hold instead.

No one rides for free – Georgia man Trevor Gladston entered the bank and handed the teller a note saying, “Hand over all the money or we start shooting.” That didn’t work, so he fled, hailing a cab and high-tailing it to a local bus station — only to discover he had no cab fare. When the driver insisted he pay, Gladston asked her to take him back to the branch he tried to stick up — and while he was trying to make a legal withdrawal, cops arrived to arrest him.
