300-Pound Ariz. Inmate Sues Over Jailhouse Menu
An inmate awaiting trial on a murder charge is suing a county in Arizona, complaining he has lost more than 100 pounds because of the jailhouse menu. Broderick Lloyd Laswell says he isn't happy that he's down to 308 pounds after eight months in the Benton County jail. He has filed a federal lawsuit complaining the jail doesn't provide inmates with enough food. I am surprised ! he should be thankful he didn't have to spend money for weight watchers !

Sex Club Selling Used Beds, Furniture

Honey-stealing bear costs Macedonian state $3,500
A court in Macedonia has ordered the government to pay a $3,500 fine to a local bee-keeper over a bear that had been stealing his honey, national media said on Friday.
The case came about after a man from the village of Krivogastani, near the town of Bitola, appealed to a local court, claiming damage to his property. Our government will be happy ! we only have bears in a zoo and they are fed anyway by them.

The world is a mad place, lol!! I didn't have a Barbie and look what happened :)

You are right about the slimming inmate: some people pay lots of money to get rid of a few pounds.

I have never seen such a bed, Gattina, wonder who would buy it, together with the used matresses and the oh, so purple wall covering!!
Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Well, I certainly AGREE with the Iranian official! But even MORE than Barbie, he should be wary of Happy Meal Toys!!!
