1) The Daytona Cubs: The minor-league baseball team is giving away a funeral in September. Is there any wonder that only 12 people showed up at the team's
2) Tastes like candy: Lollipops laced with PCP and/or THC (called dro pops) are becoming popular. I imagine that they would make for a different type of jolly rancher.
3) Online dating: Welcome to the world where someone can look like Seabiscuit and come across appearing like Tom Cruise— until you meet, of course.
4) A captive audience: Recently, a pageant was held in a Lithuanian prison. Instead of Miss Congeniality, they had Miss Concurrent Life Sentences.
5) An urban fairy tale: Did you know that, in the original Pinocchio, the puppet was a thug who murdered Jiminy Cricket? What's next—Snow White as a crack whore?
6) Money: Paul McCartney lost more than $80 million in a recent stock market downturn—or, in Chicago terms, three lakefront condos.

to request a transfer to a women's prison if he's found guilty.

bustier. Now she's a Home Depot away from marching in the Gay Pride Parade.

Luckily, Jennifer Lopez won by an ass.
10) Doggin‚ her out: A Norwegian woman breast-fed a litter of puppies after the dogs‚ mother died giving birth to them. I've heard of giving 'til it hurts, but that's ridiculous.

half a gallon of vodka in 30 minutes. The good news is that he's now in the Diana Ross Hall of Fame.

16) Cold chillin': Freaky Ice pops come in flavors of tequila, vodka, and cocktail blend. Once again, the
40-ounce demographic is ignored.
17) Michael Jackson: His song "Beat It" was number one 21 years ago. If only he'd taken his own advice.
