  • REDBOX USERS, PLEASE STOP USING HANDICAP PARKING SPACES _ Consumer blog Consumerist had a post on Redbox users who think handicap parking spaces are designed for them. The temptation is there -- you're just going to pull up for a minute or two to pick up or return a movie from the Redbox kiosk and the handicap parking spots are right there. It would be so much easier to pull into that spot than find one elsewhere and trek back. But, as Consumerist points out, it's illegal and rude and you just shouldn't do it.

  • On Saturday night, two pro wrestlers had a match for a small independent wrestling company in Florida.  And during the match, the wrestlers stopped cooperating . . . and one threw a REAL PUNCH at the other's eye.  After the match, the wrestler who took the punch CALLED THE COPS to report his opponent for going off the script.  The police decided not to make any arrests. 
  • Last week in Colombia, three thieves were busted robbing a shop in the middle of the night . . . when their GETAWAY DONKEY wouldn't stop HEE-HAWING.  It made so much noise that it woke up the neighbors.  The thieves ditched the stuff they'd taken and tried to run, but the cops caught up with them.
