BBQ Potato Chips, Mouse Included

In Havre, Montana, a man claims that a deep fried mouse was part of his crunchy and salty snack. While reaching into the bag to grab a few more BBQ potato chips, he grabbed some BBQ'd fur, instead. (Or so he says).

His claim may or may not be true, the results are yet to be determined. However, the man says that when he felt fur, he briefly glanced at it and then tossed it over his shoulder, without giving it too much thought.

Frito-Lay is sending a representative out this weekend to bag the mouse and run a few tests on it. However, they do mention that it is highly unlikely that something like that be found, much less put, in one of their bags as they are conscious of foreign objects in their bags.

The Weirdest Road Signs You'll Ever See

The title says it all...... Enjoy...

Truck Turns Cheesy, Fast.

Cheddar, Provelone, American, Gouda, Goat.... yum. A few of these delicious types of cheese are now a bit runny on a highway in California.

In Sacremento, California a truck carrying hundreds of pounds of cheese burst into flames causing cheese to flow freely down the, well, freeway.

The driver tried, nobly, to extinguish the fire as soon as he noticed it, but it spread too far, too fast. After trying to fight the fire for a bit, the driver realized it was too much to handle, and got his dog out of the truck. His faithful companion was traveling from Salt Lake City, Utah, to San Francisco, California with him.

Really wish we had a photo for this one....

Amazing Lego Sculptures!

Here are a few of the coolest (and probably most time consuming) sculptures out there--made from Lego's! Some of these are made by professional sculptors and some of them are from the very unique LegoLand in California. If you're in the area, you should visit. It's extremely unique.

Japanese Fashion: Unique

Japanese fashion, as I'm sure you know, is really quite different. A lot of days are dress-up days, but..not really. They're "normal days" there. Although it's weird for us, it's normal for them--and pretty inspirational for a lot of American fashions. Below are a few pictures of some of their unique and colorful combinations.

Smelly Socks Or Dead Body? Eh, Same Thing...

Apparently, old socks CAN smell like dead bodies (for those of you who were wondering-and I'm sure we all were...).

Police in Germany responded to a call from some people living in Kaiserslautern, a city in Southwest Germany, and were er, surprised to say the least, at what they found.

The people they got the call from said that their neighbor had not been home (so it seemed) in awhile, mail was piling up, no noise was coming from the apartment, things like that. The thing that WAS coming out of the apartment was a horrible smell. So potent, it was wafting under the door, across the shared staircase, and into the other people's apartment home.

When police got there, they very much expected to find a dead body. Wrong. They found a very alive body sleeping next to a very foul smelling pile of socks.

Some Of The Weirdest Excuses You've Ever Heard

We've all done it, the "excuses" thing. You know, "I didn't mean too", "I didn't know you were right there", "I was sick, not skipping, I promise!"

Well, listed are some of the weirdest excuses I've ever heard, and I'm guessing the weirdest you've ever heard.

In no particular order....

1.) When a woman went to the police claiming to be raped (and singled out who had done it), the police confronted the man. The man, seemingly calm, stated that he had merely bumped into her and become so entangled in her that it was hard to know what had really gone on. They were apparently SO entangled that he couldn't free himself for 45 minutes. Turns out, his semen WAS inside her...and he HAD raped her. But nice excuse.

2.) In Japan, sometime earlier in the year, a man was detained for firing several rounds into a building next door to his apartment. When he was brought in, he explained that he was merely very angry at the building for blocking the sunlight he had enjoyed before the building had been built.

3.) In Carlisle, PA a woman found a tape, in her apartment, of two girls undressing. When she confronted her husband (and the police were called for an invasion of privacy), he claimed that he thought there were ghosts in the house, so he set up some cameras for surveillance.

4.) In Brussels, Belgium, there is a charming little wrought-iron shop that has been run by the same owner for quite awhile (so I'm guessing). When a Nigerian applied for a job and was turned down, the owner (after investigation) claimed, "My dog is racist, not me!"

Collected excuses from here.

8-Foot-Long Boa Constrictor Found (After Being Lost).

In the quiet (and tiny) town of Rayville, LA, traffic came to stop on one of the main streets of the city. The reason? An 8-foot-long Boa Constrictor was holding up traffic.

The picture posted isn't the actual picture of the snake, but you get the general idea. Except that this snake had one eye..and had been missing since his owner moved in a few months earlier. Well, they're back together now.

AFTER the townspeople were threatening to run it over a few times so they could get their normal routine back....
