The Morning Brain Buster:
Q: 14% of adult men say they still have their mom do THIS.
Two University of Georgia students were driven desperate enough by their finals that they took to Craigslist to hire a hit man.
According to an advertisement posted on the classifieds website, two female UGA students requested a hit man to run them over with a car. They explicitly said they did not want to die, just simply be “injured enough to get out of taking our finals here at UGA.”
The two girls added that the compensation would be “hitting two lovely ladies by vehicle w/ permission.”
The ad has since been flagged for removal from Craigslist.
High School Is Crappy
One Maryland high school senior really, really doesn't like his vice principal. An unnamed student at Stephen Decatur High School was arrested after he sent three packages containing animal feces to the VP, Mark Flynn.
DelmarvaNow.com is reporting after the first package was delivered, Flynn alerted a school security official who in turn alerted the post office. Employees there noticed two more similar packages when the suspect brought them in for delivery and discovered they both also contained animal poop.
One postal inspector took down the teen's licenses plate number and informed police. Not so surprisingly, they found a "large quantity" of alcohol in the suspect's car. The student was suspended for 10-days, the maximum suspension at the school.
A Political Smear Campaign Wants Voters To Let It Go
With all the political smear ads, it's time to get creative. In case you missed it, sitting Texas Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst has released quite possibly the only attack ad featuring a Disney song.
The minute and a half long clip features a parody of "Let it Go" from "Frozen." The song attacks Dewhurst's opponent, Dan Patrick, and all the lies he's apparently told. He changed his name from Dannie Goeb to Dan Patrick and has filed for bankruptcy, at least according to this video. It includes plenty of shoddy computer animation and embarrassing video of the candidate.
The next election for these two is on May 27th and Dewhurst is hoping this bumps up his numbers. As it stands, there's a chance Patrick will win and Dewhurst will have to let it go, after all. Check out the clip below.
