  • Holy cr@p! This zombie attack bike is powered by a chainsaw

    Holy cr@p! This zombie attack bike is powered by a chainsaw I'm sorry, did you think I meant a chainsaw motor? I suppose that's understandable (after all, two-stroke chainsaw engines are often used to convert bicycles into rear-wheel-drive motorbikes), but I didn't say chainsaw motor, did I? I said chainsaw. Because whoever pieced together this unholy death machine has clearly left the power source attached to a number of other components. They've even opted for a FWD conversion so that the saw's guide blade and cutting chain could be front-mounted. 100% terrifying, 100% brilliant. Perfect for plowing through hordes of...
  • Man sings ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ in police car after being arrested for public intoxication

    In this hilarious video, a Canadian man arrested for being drunk in public is seen arguing (gently) in front of a squad car police camera. At first, the man denies "having been sort of intoxicated, as you proclaim." After stumbling over his words, he segues into a rendition of Queen's 1975 hit "Bohemian Rhapsody." As in singing the entire song. (He does get a few of the lyrics wrong.) He even attempts an a capella rendition of the song's musical breakdown
  • Man caught at Texas-Mexico border smuggling birds in pants

    DEL RIO — A Texas man caught trying to smuggle baby parrots back from Mexico by putting the birds in his pants has been fined more than $2,600. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials said Thursday that agents in Del Rio also confiscated 56 blades that are used for cockfighting. Authorities said the 33-year-old man is from the West Texas town of Comanche but did not release his name. Birds cannot be brought across the border due to concerns of spreading disease. The small, green parrots were found Sunday in the man's pockets and in his backpack.

    A self-described Lady Gaga impersonator wore a crime-scene inspired outfit last weekend – even before police accused her of drunk driving. Brittney Kay Harland's attire for the night included yellow-caution tape that was wrapped around her neck, inner thighs and buttocks and glued to her skin. Harland, 27, faces a charge of DUI involving property damage after she was involved in a two-car crash on the Orange Blossom Trail at Long Street in Orlando about 2:45 a.m. Sunday. Harland told officers the other car ran a red light, but a witness said it was Harland who ran the light, according...

    In the ER we occasionally see transgender patients.  Usually it is fairly obvious that a “woman” is really a “gurl”.  Ranging from bad drag to stuffed bras, to stubble on the face, to a deep voice, it’s usually not hard to tell what genotype the person was born as.Anyway, occasionally we are stumped.  Sometimes you are just not sure.  Sadly its rarely where you confuse a man for a beautiful woman.  Men simply look better as men – unless you have extremely fair skin, slight features, hormones, and surgery.  So usually in the cases where one is not sure, it’s...

    What goes around comes around. And if claims that disgraced senator John Edwards was a client of 'Manhattan Madam' Anna Gristina are true, then his mistress Rielle Hunter just got a taste of her own medicine. .................................................... A source told the National Enquirer: 'The news reports hit Rielle like a ton of bricks. She's been trying to have a second child with John - and now this. It's caused a major blowout!'

    A Paradise man says he is lucky to be alive after an attack by a mountain lion Monday morning. Robert Biggs, 69, often hikes in the Bean Soup Flat area, which is about a mile and a half above Whisky Flats. He came across a mother bear, a yearling and a newborn, which were about 40 feet from where he was standing. After watching the bear family for a few minutes he decided to leave them be and turned to walk back up the trail. As he turned, a mountain lion pounced on him grabbing hold of his backpack with...

    I'M sitting at a sushi bar in Sapporo, the main city on the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido, and staring at a strange, small, raw and salmon-coloured object on my plate. "Er, is it the brain of a fish?", I asked my dining companion, who happens to be Tetsuya Wakuda, the celebrated Sydney-based Japanese-Australian chef with whom I’m travelling for a magazine article. “No,” he replies. “It’s fish’s semen sac.” Sometimes it’s best not to ask. But there were ever weirder dishes to come (see below) at this lunch. There are the adventurous types who actively seek out weird food...

    The co-owner of a Palm Springs nudist resort today defended the facility's policy banning children, saying it is not discriminatory -- despite claims to the contrary by an anonymous group of detractors. Desert Sun Resort owners John and Elizabeth Young, who live in Orange County, filed a lawsuit March 16 in Orange County Superior Court against 500 unnamed defendants, asking a judge to rule that the clothing-optional resort's policy against children does not violate state law. According to Elizabeth Young, the lawsuit was filed in response to a letter she received Feb. 17 from Palm Springs attorney David Baron. The...

    An explosion on Monday rocked the suburban Atlanta home of a man known for his fight to keep chickens on his property, and emergency officials say a body was found inside.

Minutes before the explosion, Wordes told them to leave the property that was in foreclosure. Other than the body found inside the house, which officials did not immediately identify, no one was...

    We've shown before how nightmarish and cruel good intentions can be when parenting. You don't want to be your old-fashioned, neglectful parents; no, you're the wave of the future, and your kids are the waviest of the future, and you know it. And then that entire line of thinking gets completely out of hand and ridiculous stuff like this starts happening.
