He’s howl­ing Mad! - Cops swung by a Geor­gia man’s house to give him a ticket for vio­lat­ing his town’s noise laws — by bark­ing loud enough to dis­turb a neigh­bor more than 100 yards away. The man, who was intox­i­cated when cops arrived, denied that he was mak­ing any noise at all, and when asked to present iden­ti­fi­ca­tion so that a cita­tion could be writ­ten, he replied that some peo­ple called him The Holy Lamb of God. The man refused to sign the cita­tion because God needs no signature!

That’s quacked up! - Author­i­ties in North Car­olina say a bus­load of ele­men­tary stu­dents was late get­ting to school after a duck crashed through the wind­shield of their bus!  Offi­cials said the duck smashed into the bus’ wind­shield on Wilm­ing­ton High­way while it was car­ry­ing 10 stu­dents to Eliz­a­beth Cash­well Ele­men­tary School in Fayet­teville. The bus dri­ver suf­fered a few scratches and none of the chil­dren were injured. The duck, which sur­vived the ordeal, was taken by a N.C. Wildlife Resources officer.

I smell gas - A Ken­tucky man is prob­a­bly bat­tling a severe case of indi­ges­tion after get­ting arrested over a Face­book photo that shows him get­ting gas — by siphon­ing it out of a police cruiser. Michael Baker and his girl­friend posted the pic­ture, which shows him sit­ting next to the car with a siphon in one hand and a mid­dle fin­ger flip­ping from the other one. While his girl­friend said the whole thing was just staged for a laugh, Baker admits, “I got a lit­tle bit of gas. I ain’t gonna lie but not much. I couldn’t get much. I tried but there wasn’t much in it.”  Baker, who faces a hefty fine, says he’s “not really” sorry for the theft.  Way to keep your sto­ries strait!
