Bonehead Of The Day:
The internet is abuzz about a story in a recent episode of Untold Stories of the ER. In it a Florida pageant mom gives her daughter tapeworms to help her lose weight before a competition.
The nurse on the show claims the girl came into the ER complaining of stomach pains. The tapeworms were discovered after she used the bathroom.
The girl's mother later confessed to buying tapeworm eggs in Mexico and feeding them to her daughter.
Bigfoot At Mississippi Playground
A pair of Mississippi men said they had close encounters with a Bigfoot-like creature on separate occasions near the same playground.
Vicksburg resident Peyton Lassiter told The (Jackson, Miss.) Clarion-Ledger he discovered a footprint and some mysterious gray hair near a local playground Aug. 12, and David Childers, a paranormal investigator who has been featured on cable network A&E, said he caught a glimpse of a 6-foot-tall "creature" with "grayish-brown" hair at the playground in November of last year.
Lassiter said the footprint is about 9 inches long and about 6 inches wide at the toes. He said the shape of the footprint raised his curiosity.
Lassiter said his research has uncovered human-like "wood ape" sightings in the region dating back to 1721.

CHICOPEE, Mass., Sept. 3 (UPI) -- A Massachusetts woman received a traffic citation after trying to fool state police into thinking her cardboard license plate was real.
Springfield resident Johanna Baez-Rodriguez drew "Massachusetts" and "The Spirit of America" in blue and red lettering on a piece of cardboard and attached it to her 1991 Honda Accord. Trooper Nicole Morrell noticed the fake license plate and that Baez-Rodriguez, 20, drew everything accurately, except she forgot the inspection sticker.
Morrell cited her for multiple violations including operating with a suspended license and revoked registration.
"It's illegal," said Morrell. "To be on the road you need to have a registered vehicle and a proper registration sticker or you will get a citation."
