We don't have a section for the really stupid stuff. The stuff that makes you shake your head in disbelief, laugh at the workings of insta-karma or just stretch the bounds of the ridiculous. Yet we do all need a laugh.

So - post 'em here if you find one!

Man shoots himself in the balls after being caught relieving himself by police

Another day, and yet another example of karma working its wicked way once again.

A man who was caught urinating in the street accidentally shot himself in the privates while attempting to get rid of a gun he was carrying.

Javier Thomas, 26, was caught relieving himself in a Brooklyn street in the early hours of Saturday, and immediately attempted to throw away his 9-mm Glock pistol.

But he was left in agony when he accidentally pulled the trigger and shot himself in the privates, police said.

Thomas was taken to Kings County Hospital with a non-life threatening wound, and was later arrested on charges of weapon possession and reckless endangerment.

Reality is stranger than fiction... **nononono*  just look at the absurd reality of Obama elected president, makes a deal to give Iran nuclear weapons, and his opposition party instead of stopping him, drafted legislation to help him subvert the constitution's treaty provision!  :thud:

Woman runs red light and almost causes crash, begins dancing on roof of car she nearly collided with

After almost colliding with a black saloon in the middle of a busy intersection, a woman in Guangdong for reasons unknown got off her scooter and began dancing on top of the car she very nearly crashed into.

According to Chinaso, at around 7 a.m. this morning eyewitnesses reported seeing a woman running a red light at a busy junction in Meizhou city, Guangdong province. After almost colliding with the car, everyone expected the driver to emerge and begin yelling at the woman, but instead the car remained stationary in the middle of the road.

Seemingly incensed by the fact that the driver refused to reveal himself, the woman dismounted her scooter, got on top of the car and started dancing, much to the disbelief of everyone in the vicinity.

This scene apparently went on for some time, causing a large traffic jam around the intersection. Only once police had been called did the woman finally call it a day and get off the car.

After the black saloon had driven away, the woman then decided to lie down in the middle of the road, oblivious to all the cars passing through the busy junction. After a further 10 minutes police arrived and moved the woman along.

India police charge toddler with 'theft and trespassing'

Police in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh have been left red-faced after charging a toddler with theft.

Two-year-old Ravi had been named in a police complaint along with three men, one of whom was his relative.

Police attempted to arrest the toddler on Tuesday - causing his alarmed father to take Ravi to the district court, where he explained the situation to senior police officers, reports said.

Ravi's name was taken off the complaint after the senior officers intervened.

They need to start making a four-wheel drive motorized wheelchair.  I see people driving these things everywhere, like you would a car.  Came around a blind curve on a State highway one evening at dusk, at a good clip - and there, right in front of me in the middle of the lane (no reflectors or lights) was a guy in a motorized wheelchair.  I had to slam on my brakes to keep from hitting him. 

I understand that the wheelchairs give people independence and mobility - but they are not cars and should not be treated as such.  That said, glad they found the guy in time!

What was the name of that movie where a female high school gym teacher wanted to inspect the penises of all the boys in the school so she could identify who had been spying on the girl's shower? (He had exposed himself though his peep hole).

Man has six inch long dagger stuck in his rear while trying to remove piles in DIY operation

    WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT
    Patient was taken to hospital in Hangzhou, China, yesterday
    A dagger could be seen sticking out from the man's backside
    He claimed he sat on the blade by accident while trying to remove piles
    Surgeons have extracted the knife but failed to find haemorrhoids   


A Chinese man has a six-inch-long dagger removed from his rear yesterday after it got stuck there by accident.

The patient, known only by his surname of Yan, said he had tried to remove his piles with the knife in his dorm when the blade got caught in his rectum, reportedPeople's Daily Online

However, doctors from Sir Run Run Shaw Hospital in Hangzhou, eastern China, said they didn't find any haemorrhoids on Mr Yan.

Removed: Doctors successfully extracted the sharp object (pictured) yesterday from the patient's body

Mr Yan was taken to the hospital by his colleagues at around 11am on October 7.

He is reported to be in his 50s and comes from Jiangsu province. He works as a dishwasher at a restaurant in Hangzhou.

Hospital staff said the patient was in great pain when he was sent to the emergency room and the handle of a dagger could be seen sticking out from his backside.

An unnamed colleague, who sent Mr Yan to the hospital, told Zhejiang Television Station: 'A colleague of his called me and said [Mr Yan] was sleeping and couldn't come to work today.

'He said a knife is sticking out from [Mr Yan's] rear.'

Mr Yan's colleagues decided to rush him to the hospital.

Mr Yan told a local reporter that he had been suffering from haemorrhoids for more than 10 years.

The pain became unbearable yesterday morning so he decided to 'chop them off' by himself with a dagger.

He said he carried out the operation by squatting down in front of a mirror, but he lost his balance at one point and sat on the blade by accident.

After checking the patient, an emergency room doctor said: 'We need to see if the dagger has pierced the rectum or the colon. If the intestines are fine, then we will remove it directly.'
