Crazy Video: Best Prank Ever?

In Crazy News Crazy Video of the Week, Uncategorized on July 20, 2007 at 3:32 pm

I’ve decided to start a new weekly blog segment.

Since it’s Friday, the traditional end of the working week, I thought it would just be great to cap off the week with…

The Crazy News Crazy Video of the Week

So for our maiden segment, I spent about 15 minutes looking at random youtube videos and have narrowed one down as this weeks, Crazy News Crazy Video of the Week.

It looks to me like a crazy prank by a couple of college students on a dorm buddy who has passed out, by what is presumed to be a heavy night of drinking.

Quite hilarious indeed.

The best part is when he wakes up in the middle of the lake!

Enjoy your weekend!

Expensive tastes: Dog eats US $800!

Naughty dog!

“She’s eaten lipstick, so lipstick gets all over the carpet, ball point pens all over the carpet, toothpaste, shampoo…she’ll eat a whole box of Kleenex if she can get it.”

Ahh yes, the humble dog.

One of the greatest, most loyal companions in human history. Well, in most cases. Some people choose to eat dogs rather than be their friends, sometimes both.

Pepper Ann is an eight-year-old black Labrador-German shorthair from Wisconsin, USA. And she eats everything she can get her jaw into.

On a trip to her owner’s mother’s house, Pepper Ann decided she would get on into an unguarded purse of a family friend. Poking her nose inside, she was lucky enough to come across $500 in fresh US paper bills.

Bad Doggy!

Pepper Ann’s owner, 50-year-old Debbie Hulleman was then forced to play the waiting game and sort through the naughty dog’s faeces and vomit. Amazingly she managed to recover $700, taping up the dozens of torn pieces and taking them to the bank for a refund.

You go girl!

Just wonder if Pepper Anne’s appetite subsided after chewing down on all those dollar bills. Why would Pepper Anne lose her appetite you ask?

Well, studies of US dollar bills over the years have come up with a surprising amount of evidence to suggest that up to 2/3rds of US paper money in circulation may contain traces of the recreational drug cocaine. Source: Urban Legends Reference.

Not that there would be enough of the stuff on the bills to have an effect, or would there? Apparently, cocaine effects can include loss of appetite. Not that I would know.

Maybe I should ask all round wild child Lindsay Lohan…She’s tanking faster than Enron stock that girl.

Party time!

Man’s call to 911 emergency: ‘Help, I’m surrounded by police!’

In 2007, Crazy news, Florida, law and order, Odd News, police, Tool of the Week, United States, USA, Worlds most on July 20, 2007 at 3:03 am

 

Du’h, yeah boss!

Could this guy be the dumbest man in the world?

He was surrounded by police with guns drawn in the town of Largo, Florida in the US.

Instead of putting his hands on his head and coming out quietly, like everyone else does, he decided a call to emergency hotline 911 was in order.

Media Reports:

A 38-year-old man was arrested after he called 911 and told a dispatcher he was surrounded by police officers and needed help, authorities said.

Police officers met Dana Farrell Shelton after being called to investigate a disturbance at a bar on Sunday but had found no problems and told him to move along.

Shelton, who officers said appeared intoxicated, then called 911 to report he was “surrounded by Largo police,” according to an arrest affidavit.

It’s War, Trade War That Is! As China arrests reporter for ‘fake’ cardboard food story

It was a story that made for very interesting headlines around the world (The Crazy News didn’t report it, it sounded a little suss at the time).

A Chinese TV current affairs program ran a story last week that claimed an unlicensed food vendor in Beijing had been selling stuffed dumplings, using not fresh pork like usual but old cardboard with pork flavouring, and selling the food to unsuspecting locals.

But today authorities in the Chinese capitol have detained the China Central TV reporter behind the story, claiming that the journalist story was a fabrication aimed at securing “higher audience ratings”.

The detention of the reporter comes as China experiences a small trading war with countries like the United States, Canada, Japan, Singapore, Panama and Australia.

 A series of tainted food and drug scandals that included poison dog food, toothpaste and drugs that resulted in dead pets and humans in the case of Panama.

China even took the shocking step of executing the former head of the countries food and drug regulator after “taking bribes to approve untested medicine”, a very sick stunt by the Chinese government to say the least.

Then again, you can get executed for pretty much anything in China, undertaking more court-ordered executions than the rest of the world combined.

The detention of the reporter really makes you wonder if the fake story about cardboard in food was actually real, or if the detention was just another stunt to assure us that the slogan ‘made in China’ means quality, yeah right.

In any case we’ll probably never know.
