WEIRD, BIZARRE and UNUSUAL (.1123)



FREE ISN’T ALWAYS FREE
Ryan Roche won a $50 gift card to Ruth's Chris Steak House while attending a party in Provo, Utah, by chugging-down a quart of eggnog in only 12 seconds. Sadly though, he’d aspirated the drink into his lungs causing him to spend three days in a hospital.

CONSERVATIVE CRIMINALS
Devon, England - In November 2014, Christopher Saunders, 38, pleaded guilty to possessing 0.09 grams of marijuana, valued at 14 cents. And, in that same month, a court in Letterkenny, Ireland, sentenced Keith Shannon, 44, to two years’ probation for twice being caught swiping "sampler" packets of aftershave at a Boots store, valued at 2 cents each.

A PIN-HEAD’S “ART WORK”
How complicated is your understanding of art? In November 2014, an art show, at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, provided a place for New York-based Italian artist Sven Sachsalber to display a unique “masterpiece,” where he dropped a needle into a large haystack, then gave himself two days to find it.
