OFFER THE THIEF HALF-PRICE?
The Des Moines Police Department, responding to the burglary of a vehicle on March 8, 2015, were told by the owner somebody tried to steal his truck but instead broke into the driver’s side door and stole a sack. What was the loss? According to the complainant, it was "a bag of dog feces." The Des Moines Register reported the value of the theft to be about $1.

WELL, HE COULDN’T “BARK” A CAB
"I have had plenty of people wave me down for help, but I have never actually been flagged down by a dog in need of rescue before. It was as if he recognized my uniform and knew I was there to rescue him." That’s what RSPCA inspector Stephanie Law said after Alfie, a 7-year-old Yorkshire terrier, jumped in front of her van in Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire. A computer chip located Alfie’s owner, Kirsty Mitton, 23, some 100 miles away. (http://news.sky.com/story/1461165/stolen-yorkshire-terrier-flags-down-rspca-van)
NOW THIS DENIAL REALLY SUCKSA Vietnam War veteran, Arnold Breitenbach, of St. George, Utah, was surprised when he was forbidden to have a license plate designated CIB 69, representing the Combat Infantryman's Badge he received and the year he was awarded the Purple Heart. The Utah Division of Motor Vehicles denied his request, “citing state regulations prohibiting the use of the number 69 because of its sexual connotations.” (http://www.9news.com/story/news/local/2015/04/11/vietnam-vet-license-plate-denied-69/25648465/)
