Coffee, tea or pee?

The future of breast enlargement

I don't know what's more odd about this story... The fact that she stole a bird to cash it in for a car, the car she wanted to buy was owned by a friend of the bird's owner or that she put the poor creature in her bra!

Woman arrested for stuffing bird into bra


FORT MYERS (AP) - A Florida woman has been arrested for padding her bra - with a stolen parrot.
Jill Knispel, 35, is facing felony charges after hiding a rare Greenwing parrot in her bra and stealing it from her employer, Baby Exotic Birds, police said.
Knispel allegedly stole the bird so she could trade it for a vintage 1964 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia automobile. She couldn't resist telling the car's owner how she got the animal, according to the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Turns out the car's owner is friends with the man who owns the $2,000 bird.
DNA tests confirmed the bird's identity and Knispel was charged Saturday with grand theft.
"The circumstances of the case are the most bizarre I've ever encountered," said veteran wildlife investigator Lenny Barshinger.

This guy's rappin' name should be 25 cent

This story begs the question....Is that $1,500 in quarters in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

SPRING HILL -- A man is charged with stealing $1,500 -- in quarters. Michael Ray Ross, 25, of Spring Hill, took the money -- which weighed about 75 pounds -- from his girlfriend's grandfather's closet, the Hernando County Sheriff's Office said. Ross attempted to cash in more than $600 in quarters Tuesday at a local grocery store, according to a Hernando County sheriff's report. He was arrested after he began "acting suspiciously." He told deputies he knew the man kept the quarters in his closet, and took the change on two separate occasions in the past month, authorities said.
