The dis­ap­pear­ance of $4000 from inside the couch was first spot­ted by a 9 year old Ukrain­ian boy’s father. He opened the stash and saw it was empty. After an argu­ment, the son admit­ted tak­ing the money dur­ing his autumn school hol­i­day, $3,300 in U.S. cash and about 600 euros ($635), and spend­ing it on candy, which he shared with friends!  At least he knows how to share….

A Florida man showed a dis­tinct lack of horse sense after he was thrown from his horse on a drunken late night ride – only to try to get even by shoot­ing the ani­mal in retal­i­a­tion for the embar­rass­ment. Lon­nie Wilk­er­son had report­edly knocked back sev­eral shots of vodka over the course of his evening out, then climbed aboard his horse for the trek home. When he was tossed from his mount, Wilk­er­son saw red and drew his gun, fir­ing sev­eral shots, none of which came close to hit­ting the ani­mal. He was arrested on charges of using a firearm while under the influ­ence of alcohol.

Bunty Verma used to have a sharp tongue. The 32-year-old TV repair­man from India report­edly insulted his wife, Hema, so fre­quently and severely that she recently left him, tak­ing their daugh­ter with her. The man was so dis­traught that he cut off his tongue! Verma tried to reach out to his estranged wife with a note explain­ing that since it was his tongue that was respon­si­ble for his cruel words, he sliced it off.  No word on whether his wife believed the rec­on­cil­i­a­tion attempt was any­thing more than lip ser­vice, but Verma was admit­ted to a gov­ern­ment hos­pi­tal for treat­ment, and the med­ical offi­cer informed local police offi­cials about his per­sonal dismemberment.
