Paranoid much? – Authorities in Florida said a man who awoke to the sound of his dog barking grabbed Bond Arms Snake Slayer .410 shotshell/.45 Colt derringer from beneath his pillow and accidentally shot himself in the arm!  When you’re startled awake is not the time to make assumptions!  He was taken to Halifax Health Medical Center in Daytona Beach by EVAC ambulance for treatment.  No word on what the dog was barking at. 

Naked lunch – An Illinois couple faces getting their buns toasted after they zipped into a fast-food drive thru to place an order — while both of them were buck naked. Paul Kosur and Megan Guiterrez stripped down pretty far before they even reached the Galesburg McDonald’s — the only clothing items found in their car were a coat and one pair of pants that Kosur was trying to pull on when cops arrived.  The pair kept their senses of humor: Even after being booked on indecency charges, they told officers they still thought the stunt was hilarious.

I’m not chicken! – A Florida man who was busted as part of a cock-fighting ring three years ago lost a game of chicken with authorities when he was arrested picking up a live rooster at the post office last week. Danny Pham pleaded ignorance, saying he was only transporting the bird for a friend. In the earlier bust, he insisted he didn’t know there was a cockfight at his home, despite the fact that there were more than 80 roosters caged up in his backyard. Since he’d been banned from possessing any animals, Pham was arrested for violating his probation.
