Surprise!

What is UP with our crazy world?! I have an odd fascination for news of the weird and wacky, which makes me all the more aware of how nuts everyone but me [and you, of course!] is. ;o)

Here's one of my favorite sites for weird-but-true news pieces. This guy even has a free [or premium subscription] weekly newsletter, so the fun never stops.

Don't believe me? Here's a sample item from one of his newsletters:

"Sent Packing - Charles D. McKinley, 25, of Brooklyn, N.Y., had four weeks of vacation coming, so he decided to visit his parents in DeSoto, Texas. Rather than buy a plane ticket for $320, McKinley, a shipping clerk, packed himself into a shipping crate and air-expressed himself home, charging the fees to his employer. When the crate was delivered to his parents' front step, McKinley pushed out of the box and shook hands with the "shaken and frightened" delivery driver. The driver called the police. After an investigation by the FBI, the U.S. attorney, postal inspectors, the Federal Aviation Administration and the Transportation Security Administration, McKinley was charged as a stowaway, a federal misdemeanor. (Dallas Morning News) ...If he had only waited for the driver to leave, he would have been home free."

Hee-larious stuff, and totally decent, since his pastor is on his mailing list, and it'd be like cussing in a church to send your pastor naughty news items.
