WEIRD, BIZARRE and UNUSUAL (.1360)



FLOWERS? FLOURS?
When Welsh waitress Paige-Ellen Williams, 22,  asked her boyfriend, Richard Selway, 29,  for flowers, apparently she’d forgotten his “prankster side?” Soon after, a delivery driver knocking at the door tried presenting her with 12 “lovely” bags of white flour, the kind used in cooking.

MISC. NEWSPAPER MIS-WORDINGS
(1) “My mother wants to have the dog's tail operated on again, and if it doesn't heal this time, she'll have to be put away.” (2) “The bride was wearing a gorgeous old lace gown that fell to the floor as she came down the aisle.” (3) In an East African newspaper: “A new swimming pool is rapidly taking shape since the contractors have thrown in the bulk of their workers.”
REALLY DUMB TIMES TWO
Vermont police stopped Erik Polite, 35, after clocking him doing 106 mph. And, while he did a breathalyzer test, which he flunked, his passenger, Leeshawn Baker, 34, who was also later determined drunk, hopped into the driver’s seat and took off. Driving in reverse, he crossed two lanes of traffic and slammed into the median. (Found inside their car: 79 oxycodone pills, about 50 Percocet pills and marijuana.)
