NSFW as it contains 5 billion curses. God bless this guy. I keep playing this in the background and can’t stop giggling.

[…]Then, right at the height of his popularity, the Noid endured perhaps the worst mascot PR in history.
On January 30, 1989, a man wielding a .357 magnum revolver stormed into a Domino’s in Atlanta, Georgia and took two employees hostage. For five hours, he engaged in a standoff with police, all the while ordering his hostages to make him pizzas. Before the police could negotiate with his demands ($100,000, a getaway car, and a copy of The Widow’s Son – a novel about Freemasons), the two employees escaped. In the ensuing chaos, the captor fired two gunshots into the establishment’s ceiling, was forcefully apprehended, and received charges of kidnapping, aggravated assault, and theft by extortion.
The assailant, a 22-year-old named Kenneth Lamar Noid, was apparently upset about the chain’s new mascot. A police officer on the scene later revealed that Noid had “an ongoing feud in his mind with the owner of Domino’s Pizza about the Noid commercials,” and thought the advertisements had specifically made fun of him. A headline the following morning in the Boca Raton News sparked a talk show frenzy: “Domino’s Hostages Couldn’t Avoid the Noid This Time.”

It totally was not worth it.
Woman claims she keeps seeing cleaning women: North Royalton Police Blotter
SUSPICIOUS PERSON, ROYALTON ROAD: A woman reported about 10 a.m. June 2 that three or four women, ages 25-30, came to her house the day before to clean.
The problem was that they never left. In fact, they were coming and going to the house as if they lived there.
To make matters worse, the woman said, when she tried to touch the cleaning women, they would disappear.
You guys, listen.
Who ya gonna call? GHOST DUSTERS.
A Polish man has been left critically injured after he allegedly blew up his house when he realised his wife and children had gone on a picnic without him.
Czeslaw Kaminski, 69, was believed to have been so incensed when he woke to find a note from his wife to say that she had gone away for the day with the children that he decided to destroy the family home to teach her a lesson.
He allegedly started a fire in the basement of his home and threw two gas cylinders on top of the property in the village of Chechlo Drugie, near Lodz, in central Poland.
Thank god it wasn’t a BBQ. Also, it MAY have an anger problem. Not sure though.

I bolded some of my favorites. I wish I could have triple bolded #12. A Juggalo/vegetarian combo? Amazing. Also, Juggalo rhymes with wallaroo (okay, not really at all, but get over it), and I have no idea what these critters look like.
TELL ME GOOGLE IMAGES..
& BRB, gotta go to Amazon & get a copy of that book from #7…
What the hell. They only have Ice by Ice: The Vanilla Ice Story in His Own Words. THIS IS A TRAVESTY (although now I kind of want that one too, but still). I can’t believe my most beloved Amazon failed me. Hmm, maybe they have some wallaroos I can buy.
At least I found some Ice + TMNT action:
STEPHEN COLBERT’S TOUCHING TRIBUTE TO BOSTON
Before we begin, I just want to take a moment to talk about the attack in Boston yesterday.’
Obviously our thoughts and our prayers are with everybody there and as the president said, we don’t know who did this but they will be found and they will be brought to justice.’
But whoever did this did obviously did not know s about the people of Boston, because nothing these terrorists do is going to shake them.
‘For Pete’s sake, Boston was founded by the pilgrims – a people so tough they had to buckle their goddamn hats on. It is the cradle of the American revolution. A city that withstood a 86 year losing streak [picture of the Boston Red Sox]. A city that made it through the Big Dig, a construction project that backed up traffic for 16 years. I mean, there are commuters just getting home now.’
Even their bands are tough. It’s the hometown of Aerosmith who, in their fifth decade, are still going strong. Even Steven Tyler looks fantastic – for a 73-year-old woman.’
But here’s what these cowards really don’t get, they attacked the Boston marathon, an event celebrating people who run 26 miles on their day off until their nipples are raw – for fun. And they have been holding it in Boston since 1897. And do you know how tough you have to be to run in a whalebone corset?’
And when those bombs went off there were runners who after finishing a marathon kept running for another two miles to the hospital to donate blood.’
So here’s what I know. These maniacs may have tried to make life bad for the people of Boston. But all they can ever do is show just how good those people are.’
Perfectly done, Colbert.
Early yesterday morning, a man broke into Paris’s Museum of Natural History and used a chainsaw to cut off the tusk of a 325-year-old elephant skeleton before being caught shortly afterward by police.
Neighbors of the museum called police after hearing a “a strange sawing sound at around 3am” (that would be the chainsaw). When police arrived, they found the thief, who was in his 20s, desperately trying to scale a wall while carrying a tusk, having left the still-whirring chainsaw next to the elephant skeleton. The thief fractured his ankle during his would-be escape.
