A lawsuit over photos at Walgreens is growing larger and more serious. A suit filed in district court Monday claims Walgreens photo lab employees copied and distributed at least 150 private photos from a customer. The suit targets three employees from the photo lab at the Walgreens on Research Boulevard. It also claims the employees routinely made extra copies of provocative pictures and gave some to other employees, including supervisors at other Walgreens. The woman and man in the photos originally sued the drugstore in March, claiming lab employees copied and distributed their private pictures. But at the time the suit didn’t specify how many photos were involved.
Hey folks, guess what! They have these really nifty things called digital cameras now. They’re really cool because you can take all the erotic pics you want of your bedroom antics and you never have to get them developed! Isn’t that cool? Welcome to the 21st century you morons.

Better hurry while it’s there. A warning too – it’s not exactly kid safe, but it’s funny as hell. I always knew fox news was cool!

A Handcuffed man who escaped from the back of a police car lived at his own home for five months before he was recaptured. It was the second time 20-year-old Anthony Jones had fled in shackles, Swansea Crown Court was told. Now an investigation has been launched into how he was able to do it. Jones, of Maes y Parc, Ravenhill, Swansea, was jailed for nine months after pleading guilty to possessing cannabis resin and breaching a community rehabilitation order imposed last September for burglary at a house in Swansea Road, Llangyfelach. Mark Spackman, prosecuting, said that at 10pm on December 4 police sped to Middle Road, Ravenhill, after receiving reports about an abandoned car. Jones, of nearby Maes y Parc, was one of four men said to have been travelling in the car a short time earlier. When he was searched a small amount of cannabis resin, 2.3 grams, was found in his pocket. As a result, said Mr Spackman, rigid handcuffs were put on Jones and he was left in the back of a police car while officers carried out a general search of the area. A short time later a girl could be heard shouting, “run”, and Jones was seen fleeing from the vehicle. Later, the handcuffs were found damaged, having been cut off. Jones remained at large until he was re-arrested five months later. The court heard that in August, 2002, he had escaped from another police vehicle in the same way. Paul Hobson, in mitigation, said it was surprising Jones had been able to remain at large for so long, because after he escaped he returned to his home.
I bet after this story broke the 911 phones in that town went dead. People probably figured, “Hey, what’s the point?” I’m inclined to agree. These guys couldn’t find nuts if they were standing in a nutsack. Idiots. Actually, it sounds to me like maybe they were embarrassed after having lost him twice and tried to sweep it under the rug. I bet that’s what happened.

MADISON, Wis. – This is one passenger no one wants in their rental car. A man found a slithery surprise Sunday when a ball python stuck its head out from between his legs while he was driving a rental car Sunday. “He was completely in shock,” said Officer Laura Walker, who responded to the scene. “I mean he said he was lucky he didn’t crash the car.” When Walker and animal control officer Tim Frank arrived at about 4:30 p.m., the 2 1/2-foot constrictor snake was coiled around the seat’s base, Walker said. With some effort, Frank removed the black and gold snake and took it to the Dane County Humane Society, which will put it up for adoption after seven days if no one claims it, Frank said. The man had rented the car the night before and had driven it to Milwaukee and back and around Madison Sunday, Walker said. The snake was slightly dehydrated and was probably there for at least a week, Frank said. The snake was tame and likely hand-reared, Frank said, adding that ball snakes are very common pets. Sgt. John Radovan said the driver had no idea how or when the snake got into the car. “Before he left he told the officer that he was going to expect a free car rental,” Radovan said.
Screw a free rental. They should give him the whole damn car for that one! Who the hell was supposed to be prepping and checking those cars between rentals? Whoever it is wasn’t doing their job. Can you imagine how freaky it would be to be driving down the road and have a python head come up between your legs? That’s an accident waiting to happen.

PAMPA, Texas (AP) – A Texas couple who named their son ESPN after the cable sports network will soon get a visit from the toddler’s namesake. An ESPN film crew is coming to the Panhandle town of Pampa next month to interview the family of 2-year-old ESPN Malachi McCall for a feature on children around the country with the unique name. ESPN (pronounced Espen) McCall is one of at least three youngsters in the United States known to be named for the sports network. A couple in Corpus Christi named their son Espn Curiel in 2000, the same year Espen Blondeel was born in Michigan. “We don’t have viewers. We have fans,” ESPN spokesman Dave Nagle said Saturday. “And I guess there’s no better testament than when someone names their child after your product. It just shows the bond we have with people.” Nagle said the feature will air Sept. 6 as part of a two-hour special celebrating the network’s 25th anniversary. Rebecca and Michael McCall said their son’s name started as a joke after they heard on the radio about another couple naming their son “ESPEN.” He looked at me and said, ‘That’s a cool name,’” Rebecca McCall said in Saturday’s editions of the Amarillo Globe-News. Rebecca McCall said she resisted her husband’s idea at first, but the idea grew on her. “I didn’t like it until he was born,” she said, adding that by then, she couldn’t think of calling her son anything else.
Jesus when will people ever learn that saddling your kid with a stupid name is a sure fire way of ensuring beatdowns and stolen lunch money in school? Why the hell didn’t they just name him Moon Glow or something and just put the nail in his damn coffin?

I don’t know where she got it but my wife just pasted this to me. It’s from some news website.
An Iranian newspaper has reported the controversial story of a woman who claims to have given birth to a frog.
The Iranian daily Etemaad says the creature is believed to have grown from larva to an adult frog inside her body.
I just thought that was funny.

DALLAS, Texas (Reuters) — Firefighters in a Dallas suburb returned to their station to find a fire started by potatoes they left cooking on a stove, officials said Friday. The fire caused about $125,000 in damages to the station in Lancaster, a southern suburb of Dallas, said Fire Marshal Ladis Barr. The blaze was extinguished late Thursday night with the help of firefighters from other stations. It damaged the kitchen and living area. Fire officials also wanted to remind the public to make sure not to leave food cooking before stepping out.
Jeez, I know they were probably in a hurry but you’d think that if anyone would know better than to let something like this happen, firefighters would.

Managers at an upmarket restaurant accidently sent an e-mail to a complaining customer – calling him a “twat”. Paul Whydall had sent an angry message to Colwick Hall over his treatment during a night out. He said his party had to wait 20 minutes for service and a waiter spilled a drink on his shoes, ruining them. General manager Helene Key picked up the complaint and attempted to forward it to hotel owner Chek Whyte – along with the message: “Monkey, Can you please help me answer this twat. Cheers, Hx.” But she blundered by pressing the “reply” button – meaning the offensive message landed on Mr Whydall’s computer instead. Now Colwick Hall bosses have attempted to smooth over the row – by claiming the offensive word was a typing error. It is claimed “twat” should have read “twot” which stands for “total waste of time”. But Mr Whydall, a 25-year-old barman, is unimpressed. “In any case whether they called me a ‘twat’ or a ‘twot’ it doesn’t really matter, it’s still really offensive,” he said. Mr Whydall, of Belper, Derbyshire, visited the lounge bar of the 18th Century conference centre last week. During the visit he said a waiter spilt a glass of coke, soaking him and his friend Rob Lester, 26. Mr Whydall, who was celebrating his birthday, also claims the waiter ruined his travel books on Australia, which he plans to visit next year, and his suede shoes. He demanded

BEIJING – A man in south China broke both his legs and an arm when he fell to the ground after a fast-rising kite pulled him 5 meters (16 feet) into the air, the official Xinhua News Agency said Saturday. The man, identified only by his surname, Zhong, was a spectator Tuesday at a kite-flying festival on the island province of Hainan, Xinhua said. He joined a group of people flying a 10-square meter (108-square foot) hexagonal kite, it said. As the kite was lifted by strong winds, the others holding it let go, but Zhong was dragged about 5 meters (16 feet) into the air before he let loose and fell.
They have a name for kites that big. They’re called hang gliders, and when one of them’s got you up in the air, you’re not supposed to let go. What the hell were they thinking flying a kite this big anyway? They had to have know that one good strong wind would have taken them for a rather scary little trip.
