Here’s your That’s WEIRD! for January 18th, 2014…
1) An elderly Chicago man was stopped by police for using a handgun to shoot down icicles on his house. The man argued that he wasn’t hurting anybody, since he was aiming the shots upward, but police reported that the 80 year old didn’t know he wasn’t allowed to fire out of the window of his own home. Go figure.
2) An American Apparel window display is taking a cue from 70s porn with its choice of…ahem…grooming. The female mannequins are dressed in high waisted tighty whiteys, through which you can clearly see a 70s natural in all its glory. So if one of these plastic ladies goes missing, police should know to call Ron Jeremy first.
3) Toronto city staff have proposed a great idea: a “vomit fee” for passengers who throw up in cabs. This would allow cabbies to charge up to $25 dollars to pay for cleaning the vehicle. If you’re a Toronto resident, the proposed vomit fee will make you want to think twice before riding home after all that tequila and poutine. If you’re a London resident, it’s still free to throw up in cabs.
