It’s Monday and that means it’s time for Mystifying Monday! Mystifying Monday means that it’s time for me to present some of the oddest news stories or happenings that just may mystify you! I know they can mystify me!
Drunks Spontaneously Combust?
Police in Harriman, TX are trying to figure out how a couple ended up on fire. When police reported to the scene, the woman kept insisting that the lawn mower had exploded, but no lawn mower was in sight. Police had reported to the scene because a neighbor called and at first said that a couple doused each other in gasoline and set each other on fire, but then recanted and said he just saw a fire, called the police, and ran to help the couple.
Even After Sitting on a Dog, It’ll Give You Unconditional Love
Firefighters in Naperville, Illinois had to cut open a recliner in a nursing home because a dog got stuck inside the chair. The electric mechanisms stopped working once the dog was inside the folding part of the chair and a nurse had to help the dog be able to breathe by holding the chair open. The dog was rescued in about five minutes and is doing fine.
Prison Is Where You Go to Steal Things, Right?
It seems some thieves in Hoorn, Amsterdam got confused and thought that prison was where you go to steal things and not where you go if you steal things. They broke into a minimum security prison (one where inmates are transitioning back into living in society) when the inmates were allowed to be gone for the weekend to try to steal televisions there. The odd part is, it didn’t happen just once. It happened twice within six weeks!
And the Hag Is . . .
Oh, I’m sorry, that’s haggis. Perhaps it should not be a national dish, and that’s not only because many people find it to be gross. It’s because Briton actually do not know what Haggis is! The majority thought haggis was an animal the roams the highlands! Other guesses were a musical instrument, and a character from Harry Potter!
If You Are European, Don’t Try to Get a Job as a Police Officer in Indonesia
I actually don’t know about the European thing and being well endowed, but there are people that claim that Europeans are well endowed. The problem is that people applying to be a police officer in Papua Indonesia will not be allowed to be a police officer if they have had their penises endowed in any way. Officials in Papua insist that this gets in the way of training. There’s no word about people who are naturally endowed.
