Things that make you go WTF?!

From Chuck Shepherd's column that, sadly, my local newspaper no longer carries, comes this little tidbit:

According to prosecutors, Irenia "Lamb" Cotner, 34, managed to enlist four adults in rural Claremont, Ill., to help her murder a pregnant 16-year-old girl, by convincing them they all had hexes on them that could only be lifted by killing the girl before a candle with her name on it melted down. (They failed, but a man died fighting off the attackers.) One defendant said the hex was real because she got migraines every time Cotner came by. Another defendant said he learned about hexes and spells so that people would like him and said Cotner planned the murder for a remote location so that the gates of hell could open for the mother's and fetus's souls. In December, Cotner was sentenced to 57 years in prison, and two others go on trial soon.

Other bizarre crap:

I don't know what the class was about. but a student handed in a disc containing kiddie porn as his final examination.

If he ate the soup, then I want the special.

Today, January 12, is Feast of Fabulous Men Day. Apparently crack has become more ubiquitous than I thought.

The Restaurant At the End of the Universe is one step closer to reality.

No word on whether Cop Rock was on the air at the time.

A blowtorch is not an FDA approved insecticide.

When asked by reporters if Governor Crist found the typo embarrassing, he replied "Not at all" and then proceeded to feed the entire press corp with a pack of M&Ms and a can of Diet Coke.

And let me finish with this thought.

Hey, how did that get in here? More to the point, how can more get in here?

I dunno, but my wife might get a tad angry when I pre-order 7 of them, one for each day of the week.
