Bonehead Of The Day
today’s story of a bozo whose heart was in the right place but ended up getting arrested anyway. From Harrison, Arkansas, comes the story of bozo Cory Patterson who broke into a residence and stole prescription medication. When the woman made a post on her Facebook a couple of days later saying that her home had been burglarized, our bozo read it, and apparently had a change of heart. He sent her a message apologizing for the break-in. Apology accepted, but she told the cops about the message anyway. He’s busted!
Train Crash Leads To Lasagna Disaster
PASTAMONIUM! Train Crash Leads To Lasagna Disaster Huff Post: This is the worst frozen lasagna disaster to ever hit America (probably).
Last Wednesday, two men in a tractor-trailer carrying a payload of lasagna got stuck on train tracks in Gaffney, South Carolina, the Gaffney Ledger reported.
As the driver of the truck attempted to drive off the tracks, he and his partner noticed a train barreling towards them.
"[The head driver] looked up and here comes a train," Police Chief Rick Turner said.
While the workers were able to safely exit the vehicle and get off the tracks, the lasagna was not so lucky. According to The Ledger:
The train, which was traveling at approximately 32 mph, sliced through the trailer, carrying a portion of it with it as it continued down the tracks. Cartons and boxes of frozen food spilled all over the tracks.
The crash delayed traffic for about two hours while crews worked to clean up the mess, according to Fox Carolina.
While damage to the tractor-trailer was estimated to total $150,000, there's been no word yet on how much delicious frozen lasagna was lost in the tragedy.
3 Year Old Knows How He Was Killed In A Past Life
A three-year-old boy born in the Golan Heights region near the border of Syria and Israel is throwing his village for quite a loop because he reprtedly knows how he was killed in his past life, and can show proof.
According to TheEpochTimes, since the boy was able to talk, he would tell people he was killed by an axe in his past life. He is part of the Druse ethnic group who believe in the past life experience and point out that the boy was born with a long red birthmark on his head, which they believe adds to his story.
Now here's where it gets eerie. The little guy also knew the full name of his former killer and when he confronted the man, his face "went white" but denied the crime. That's not all. The boy pointed villagers to the scene of his supposed death, and they found a skeleton there. But wait, there's more. He also brought people to where the murder weapon was, and the axe was found buried. After being presented with all the evidence, the man accused of the crime confessed.

4th Graders Don't Give Romantic Advice
If you're looking for romantic advice, 10-year-olds are probably not the way to go. Nevertheless, that's apparently what 45-year-old substitute teacher Cassandre Fiering did. The Bronx, New York teacher was reportedly fired back in December after accused of talking to clas of fourth graders about her love life, asking them for advice on who she should pick out of the two men she was seeing.
As Gothamist reports, Fiering fancies herself an actress and may have even had her five-student class act out scenarios between her and her boyfriends. That's not what Fiering is saying. "The kids were saying, ‘Oh, we’re your counselor,’” Fiering said. “They were excited to have me listen to their advice. They were saying all kinds of things, trying to help me because this guy was being a jerk to me...I certainly wasn’t talking about sex or anything.”
She spoke with the site about her current debacle and says its all wrong. She says it started when a 13-year-old starting speaking about her poetry. "The aide came back the next day, and they told her, 'Oh, we were giving her love advice,' because I was interested in what they were saying. Because I was letting them speak and they're probably not used to that." she said. "And because it was going so nicely, I allowed them to say whatever they thought." The aide then reported it to the principal who she had never met. Fiering is appealing her case.
