Odds and Weak Ends

So, in Bay City, Michigan, police went to the home of a 50-year old woman to serve her with a petition for a mental health examination. The woman responded by hitting the serving officer over the head with a shovel. Why, oh, why could someone have wanted to do a mental health examination on someone like that, I wonder? Puzzling, indeed.

The fine folks over there at thesun.co.uk would get along just great with the guys from the New York Post. With the way that the Post guys write headlines and the way that the Sun guys write their articles, it's a match made in heaven, I'll tell you that. The Sun, reporting on the possibility that Lindsay Lohan might have hooked up with her gay DJ pal Samantha Ronson, lead off their article with this "tongue in cheek" sentence, "LINDSAY LOHAN has got tongues wagging over a possible new relationship." Lesbians, tongues wagging, Lindsay...it's all the stuff mid-morning fantasies are made of.

In Australia, an 81-year old man died after eating fish with an asparagus cream based sauce at a restaurant. Tests were performed on the sauce after the death and found that there was a large amount of bacteria present. The large amount of bacteria could have grown in the sauce from the sauce being left out for up to seven hours on some sort of a bench in the kitchen where the temperature was around 30C. The sauce had also possibly been reheated and re-refrigerated several times during a 48 hour hour period as well.

Now, these things don't turnip often, but when they do, they don't leave mushroom for optimism. Lettuce artichoke back the tears, endive into more pressing matters.

And, just so I don't end on THAT note, let's top things off with a little mugshot goodness from the week that was.

I cannot even begin to fathom the story behind this one.
Now, to be fair, while I don't advocate tattooing anything on the front of one's dome, at least it doesn't say "Psycho" or "Git-R-Dun" and he kind of looks embarrassed about it all.




This is obviously some sort of "Before and After" or "With and Without" mugshot (that I did not know existed). I just don't know which is "before" and which is "after".

And finally, we have "Mugshot - The Flashdance Years."
