You want fries with that shake? - A Los Ange­les woman tried to give a whole new mean­ing to the phrase “happy meal” by approach­ing men at a McDonald’s drive-through and offer­ing sex­ual favors in exchange for some chicken McNuggets.  Khadi­jah Baseer was spot­ted open­ing car doors at ran­dom in order to pro­pose her trade, but she found no tak­ers. One cus­tomer took the time to inform cops of the fast-times for fast-food offer — and Baseer was quickly taken into custody.

Great shot, lousy idea - A farmer opened fire with a hunt­ing rifle when he heard rustling on his land, believ­ing it was a pack of coy­otes.  Unfor­tu­nately it was a 17 year old unpack­ing his paint­ball gun from his car.  Bran­don Span­gler col­lapsed and was declared dead at the scene. The farmer had given the Span­gler fam­ily per­mis­sion to use the land for a paint­ball out­ing, but didn’t know they had arrived.  But, he knew they were coming.

Look both ways and in front of you - Chicago Tri­bune reported police were noti­fied about a man pos­si­bly dri­ving drunk in an alley on the city’s North­west Side.  The man, iden­ti­fied as 24-year-old Arse­nio Gar­cia, drove the wrong way down a one-way street and crashed into a police vehi­cle that was answer­ing the call!  After the crash, Gar­cia opened his door and fell out of the car, wear­ing only skivvies and socks and it turns out he had no insur­ance.  That sounds like a night on the town.  “ I’ve been drink­ing prac­ti­cally naked in the con­fines of my own home and right now seems like the per­fect time to ride in around in my car with­out insurance.”
