Candidate falls for hoax, proposes drug-sniffing police bunnies

rabbitWhen asked about drugs at a Phoenixville mayoral forum, Republican nominee Dave Gautreau proposed that, if elected, he would look into getting drug-sniffing bunnies for the borough police department.

Though it seems like a harebrained idea, Gautreau was as serious as the killer rabbit of Caerbannog.

“I was dead-serious,” he said of the idea he presented at the Thursday forum. “I would not make a joke about a rabbit if I did not believe it to be true.”

Residents wary of the proposal did what the candidate did not do: They hopped on the internet.

A quick search clearly reveals the joke. The fuzz at the police department in Amherst, N.Y., proposed narcotics rabbits on their Facebook page as an April Fool’s joke in 2016 and a satire page called People of Lancaster posted a fake article about Lancaster police getting drug-sniffing bunnies in March 2016.  More

rockThe fiancee of the 32-year-old man who was tragically killed by a rock that smashed through his windshield has spoken out.

‘He was a good man and a good father,’ said Amy Cagle who tearfully explained how she had to tell her son, five, his dad, Kenneth Andrew White, was killed on Interstate 75 in Michigan.

‘For some senseless act, for it to be just a rock, just to take him so soon,’ she said to WBTV.

White was on his way home from a construction job when tragedy struck. He was riding in the passenger seat of a van that was traveling on Interstate 75.

Police said that 20 rocks had already been thrown before the two men made their way down the highway, hitting four cars that pulled over and alerted law enforcement.

‘I just don’t understand what a person could be thinking to even want to do something like that,’ added the man’s sister, Alicia Waskoski.  More

Posted By Staff

Category: Nutty News

mrsA former Mrs. America from Minnesota convicted of switching price tags on expensive clothes has been sentenced to two years of probation and 10 days of community service.

A jury in August convicted 51-year-old Jennifer Kline, of Wayzata, Minnesota, on one felony count of theft by swindle following a week-long trial stemming from events that took place in November 2015.

The 1989 Mrs. America Pageant-winner, 51, was found guilty of stealing more than $5,500 worth of merchandise from the department store chain.

Authorities say Kline bought items from the Southdale Macy’s and attached those tags to clothes she owned.

She returned them with the altered price tags to the Mall of America Macy’s for the large refund on her credit card.

Kline asked for leniency during Wednesday’s sentencing because…  More

Judge tosses $417M award against Johnson & Johnson where woman baby powder caused ovarian cancer

Posted By Staff

Date: October 21st, 2017

Category: Nutty News

babyA judge on Friday tossed out a $417 million jury award to a woman who claimed she developed ovarian cancer by using Johnson & Johnson talc-based baby powder for feminine hygiene.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Maren Nelson granted the company’s request for a new trial, saying there were errors and jury misconduct in the previous trial that ended with the award two months ago.

Nelson also ruled that there wasn’t convincing evidence that Johnson & Johnson acted with malice and the award for damages was excessive.

The decision will be appealed even though Eva Echeverria has died, said her attorney, Mark Robinson Jr.

‘We will continue to fight on behalf of all women who have been impacted by this dangerous product,’ he said in a statement.  More

Private jet demand soars to highest level ever

jetFed-up passengers are ditching commercial airlines and flying by private jet in the highest numbers ever, new research has revealed.

They are giving up cramped middle seats and long check-in queues for the luxury of driving straight up to their aircraft before being whisked away immediately.

According to a study by aviation specialist WingX Advance there were 78,785 private jet departures in August – a surge of 5.5 per cent compared with the same period in 2016.

Entrepreneur Jamie Waller, who has taken dozens of private jet flights, told The Times: ’Being able to go back when you like and be in the air within 20 minutes, and the flexibility of being able to send an SMS to tell the pilot that I’m going to have a later lunch and I want to leave at seven rather than five is what makes it so easy to use.  More

4 essential reasons marriage might be becoming obsolete

Posted By Staff

Date: October 21st, 2017

Category: Nutty News

marThere’s no doubt: Fewer people are making a commitment to marriage.

Barely “more than half of adults in the U.S. say they’re living with a spouse,” writes Jay Zagorsky, an economist at The Ohio State University.

“It is the lowest share on record, and down from 70 percent in 1967.”

What’s behind the trend?

“Some blame widening U.S. income and wealth inequality,” Zagorsky writes.

“Others point the finger at the fall in religious adherence or cite the increase in education and income of women, making women choosier about whom to marry.

Still others focus on rising student debt and rising housing costs, forcing people to put off marriage.

Finally some believe marriage is simply an old, outdated tradition that is no longer necessary.”

However, Zagorsky writes, none of these factors alone can explain the trend…  More

teeth teethNo matter how thoroughly you clean your teeth, you are probably still exposing yourself to tooth decay, according to one dentist speaking out about oral care.

Dr Steven Lin from Australia claims that meticulously brushing and flossing the way your childhood dentist taught you to is not enough to prevent cavities and harmful levels of tooth enamel.

The answer? Your diet, according to Dr Lin. He claims that maintaining good eating habits is the only way to stave off weak, unhealthy teeth.
