And hilarious at the same time.

The only thing that puzzles me is how come white trash can afford a house worth 300 thousand pounds?

From my local newspaper..

Quote:
A Pennsylvania man says he stole two goats to make his girlfriend happy but shot and killed the animals after they butted his pickup truck.

Calvin Flahart pleaded guilty to cruelty to animals on Thursday in Lancaster County Court.

A prosecutor says Flahart stole the goats and some farm equipment from a barn in Martic Township in January 2009. The foreclosed property belonged to his girlfriend's grandfather, and its contents were about to be auctioned.

Flahart told a judge he killed the animals a couple of days later because "they were not nice goats. They head-butted my truck."

Flahart said he didn't return the goats because he was afraid of getting caught.

He was sentenced to 67 days to 23 months in prison.
Kinda freaky.. just a lil'

Quote:
A Philadelphia woman, Jean Stevens, had the embalmed bodies of her twin sister and her husband dug-up. She took them home to live with her.

Mrs. Stevens, 91, has cared for James, her husband of 60 years, dead now for more than a decade. She placed him on a couch in her garage.

Her twin sister died of cancer in October. Jean buried her twin in the twin's own backyard, then had her 'retrieved' and moved to her own house.

June Stevens was dug-up just a couple of days after burial. She has laid in a spare room and received tender care from twin sister. Jean dressed her in her best housecoat, put her glasses back on and treated her loved one to her favorite perfume. Jean and June married twin brothers.
And lastly

Quote:
BOSTON -- Five Massachusetts residents have been charged with leaving an 80-year-old family matriarch to lie for more than a month in a reclining chair in her own urine and feces.

The Fall River woman is in critical condition. Prosecutors said Wednesday she had a blood infection and severe bedsores, including one so deep that tendons could be seen through her decomposing skin.

Police found the woman Saturday after a family member called 911. A spokesman for Bristol District Attorney Sam Sutter says paramedics found the woman drifting in and out of consciousness in the recliner.

The victim's daughter, son-in-law and three grandchildren were arrested Monday on charges of permitting injury to an elderly or disabled person.

Their lawyers did not return calls seeking comment.

Here's one I read today that made me laugh.

Man with dead weasel accused of assault - Yahoo! News

Quote:
HOQUIAM, Wash. – Police say a man was carrying a dead weasel when he burst into an apartment and assaulted a man in Washington state.
The victim asked, "Why are you carrying a weasel?" Police said the attacker answered, "It's not a weasel, it's a marten," then punched him in the nose and fled.
The attacker was apparently looking for his girlfriend and had gone to her former boyfriend's apartment Monday where the victim was a guest.
KXRO reports he left the carcass behind.
Police later found the 33-year-old Hoquiam man arguing with his girlfriend at another location and arrested him after a fight.
He said he had found the marten dead near Hoquiam, but police don't know why he carried it with him.
A marten is a member of the weasel family.

I heard this on a radio station a while ago. Apparently they were found in water only a few feet deep.

Father, son drown in Lakewood pond while operating toy boat | NJ.com

Quote:
LAKEWOOD -- Investigators said a man and his teenage son apparently drowned while playing with a remote control boat at an Ocean County fishing pond.

But it's still not clear how Mark Volz and his 17-year-old son, Mark Jr., ended up in the water on Monday afternoon.

The Toms River residents were last seen operating the four- to five-foot boat around 4:30 p.m. at the edge of the pond here.

Nearly two hours later, a passer-by saw the boat bobbing in the water and noticed an empty pickup truck nearby, along with a fishing pole, boats, wallet and keys in the grass. The passer-by called the police, and the bodies were found a short time later.

Family members declined to comment on the accident.

that sounds suspicious like there is more to the story that was omitted.
