snakeA Waffle House patron in Mississippi was confronted by police officers for bringing a live snake into the restaurant.

The bizarre incident was captured on video Saturday at the 24-hour chain in McComb, and was shared on social media where it has since gone viral.

Two officers are seen confronting the customer who is wearing the snake around his neck. A verbal altercation then breaks out between the men, and as the situation escalates, one of the officers pulls his gun out. Several of the other patrons flee the scene when they see the weapon.

The argument continues for the majority of the two-minute video until the customer is eventually escorted out of the restaurant.

toyAn animal rescuer called to a London home on a report of a collapsed lizard arrived to find the reptile was actually a chewed-up dog toy.

The RSPCA said Animal Collection Officer David Eckworth responded to a home in the Hackney area of London where a resident reported spotting a lizard collapsed in her garden.

“The call came in saying the lizard was unresponsive and was curled in a ball,” Eckworth said.

“But when I attended the address and ventured into the garden to locate the poorly reptile — I found a half-eaten dog’s chew toy of an elephant!” he said. “It was quite entertaining but I think the woman was a little embarrassed.”

The RSPCA said a rescuer was previously called last September on a report of a lizard under a Coventry, England, resident’s bed, but the officer arrived to discover the reported animal was actually just a dirty sock.

norRetailer Nordstrom is facing criticism online after offering a pair of $530 shoes that come pre-scuffed up and held together with tape.

The “Superstar Taped Sneaker,” created by upscale brand Golden Goose and sold on Nordstrom’s website, feature “crumply, hold-it-all-together tape” and “a grungy rubber cupsole.”

The website charitably describes the shoes as “distressed.”

The sneakers have drawn criticism online for what critics described as trying to make poverty fashionable to the affluent.

Nordstrom responded to critics on Twitter.

“We’re always looking to bring in new, different, and unique products. We realize taste is subjective and not every customer will like every product we carry,” the company said.

WD-40 enrolls armed security to move its ‘secret formula’ after 65 years

wdThe secret formula for American household staple WD-40 has a new home after 65 years thanks to the help of Brink’s, a global leader in security-related services.

“We are 65-years-old going strong,” said the company’s chief executive, Garry Ridge, to FOX Business’ Stuart Varney on Thursday. “We just moved out our secret formula yesterday to a new bank vault.”

WD-40, which stands for water displacement, 40th formula, was made in 1953 by chemists who were attempting to create a product to protect the Atlas missile from rust and corrosion.

According to Ridge, one of the things that makes the company special is being a publicly traded company on the Nasdaq for more than two decades. He attributes the company’s success to its people.

“I think our job is to create value for our shareholders through having an engaged workforce,” he said, “And if you had invested in WD-40 20 years ago, you would have had a compounded annual growth rate of total shareholder return of 50 percent over 20 years, of 20 percent over the last 10 years and 27 percent over the last five years.”

jimmyPolice officers spent two hours investigating a suspicious plastic container found behind a Missouri sandwich shop before determining it was a high school science experiment.

KMBC-TV reports that police were summoned Tuesday to a Jimmy John’s in Platte City on the northern edge of the Kansas City metropolitan area.

The plastic container they encountered was filled with blue fluid attached to other items.

Officers eventually determined it was an experiment meant to demonstrate how hydrogen can be used as power.

The student who built the project demonstrated it to friends inside the Jimmy John’s then left it behind the store so other friends could see it.

But a worker at a nearby convenience store spotted the gadget and called 911.

Owner of Chinese restaurant in Louisiana found with roadkill in cooler

roadThe owner of a Chinese restaurant in Louisiana is facing possible jail time after a spotted fawn was found in a cooler inside the eatery, authorities said.

Somchanh Chanthapanya, 61, of Winnsboro, was cited for possession of a spotted fawn after a Franklin Parish sheriff’s deputy found the animal during a security check at the Golden Hen restaurant in Winnsboro.

“The deputy discovered an open door and proceeded inside to clear the building when he found a dead spotted fawn in the cooler,” the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries said in a news release Wednesday.

State wildlife agents were dispatched and found Chanthapanya — the owner of the restaurant — later at his home, where he was butchering the fawn.

Chanthapanya told the agents he found the animal dead on the side of Highway 17 and took the roadkill to his restaurant, where he stored it in his cooler. Chanthapanya said he took the fawn to his house after learning that the deputy may have seen the dead animal in his cooler, wildlife officials said.

Possession of a spotted fawn is punishable by fines up to $750 and between 15 and 30 days in jail.

Chanthapanya could not be reached for comment early Thursday, but his wife told the Times-Picayune that he found the dead animal along the highway and didn’t realize taking it was illegal.

poolA driving lesson went off the deep end in Maryland when authorities say the car jumped a curb, crashed through a fence and landed in a swimming pool.

Montgomery County Fire and Rescue spokesman Pete Piringer tells The Washington Post the driver and passenger were uninjured Saturday, albeit soaking wet. He says the occupants were a man and a woman in their 50s or 60s, but it’s unclear who was behind the wheel when the drive turned into a dive.

He says one was teaching the other to drive that afternoon.

The car landed in the North Creek Community Center Pool, which was closed for the season.

Piringer says the man and woman were standing poolside, having extricated themselves, by the time rescuers arrived.

wanderingUtility officials in New Orleans said 7,556 people were without power Monday due to a cat that wandered into a substation.

Entergy New Orleans said 7,556 customers lost power after a cat wandered into the substation about 8:30 a.m. and caused a flash by touching equipment.

The company said protective devices installed at substations make it unusual for a cat to find its way inside.

“When this happens, the animals, unfortunately, do not survive the high-voltage contact,” the company tweeted.
