Bonehead Of The Day:
A 56-year-old Polish man was found passed out on a bench without a pulse, and he woke up trapped in a body bag at the morgue!
It turns out that concerned people called an ambulance and he ended up being declared dead.
When the man woke up inside the bag and screamed for help, nobody heard him.
He then rolled the bag off the table and fell out of the sleeping bag to find himself in the morgue.
He now intends to file a lawsuit against the hospital for the error.
Toronto's Crack Smoking Mayor Strikes Again!
A new video has surfaced showing Toronto Mayor Rob Ford acting wildly and making threats to someone. On the video, he says, "I need f---ing 10 minutes to make sure he's dead."
The threat was referring to an unidentified person, and the video is being shopped around by someone looking to make thousands of dollars.
An anonymous person sent two short clips from the video to a newspaper, and the clips showed the mayor drunk and in an apparent rage.
He also reportedly said, "When he's down, I'll rip his f..ing throat out" and "I'll poke his eyes out" and "I'll make sure that motherf....'s dead."
Ford has responded to newsof the video, saying he was "extremely, extremely inebriated" when the video was recorded.
Bonehead Of The Day #2
The North Carolina Department of Transportation sent out a traffic alert, warning people of female drivers, rain and Obamacare.
The department usually sends out routine alerts to drivers about accidents and road work using email and Twitter messages.
But earlier this week, the traffic alert read: "Vehicle Accident: Women Drivers, Rain, Obama Care," followed by advice to "Stay Home."
Officials who said the incorrect message occurred due to a botched test of the system, adding that the message was only supposed to be sent internally.
They also said that the IT contractor who allowed the message to be seen by the public has been fired.
What The World Needed.. Bacon Scented Deodorant
A Seattle-based company has created "Power Bacon," a bacon-scented deodorant.
This is another invention from J&D Foods, the guys who started a business with bacon-flavored seasoning salt, a zero calorie, zero fat, low sodium seasoning that makes everything taste like bacon.
Since then, they have launched BaconPop, Baconnaise, Bacon Lip Balm, BaconLube, Bacon Sunscreen, Bacon Croutons, and they've even created a Bacon Coffin for those who simply, love bacon to death.
This year, the item that will make your stocking dance for the holidays is Bacon Deodorant. The product went on sale yesterday and is available to anyone looking to add a little spice to their underarms.
Chess, Rubber Duck Enter Toy Hall Of Fame
The rubber duck is now in the National Toy Hall of Fame, joining the ancient game of chess, which also made the 2013 class.
The pair beat out 10 other finalists that included bubbles, the board game Clue, Fisher-Price Little People, little green Army men, the Magic 8 Ball, My Little Pony, Nerf toys, the Pac-Man video game, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the scooter.
Online polls had Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and My Little Pony running strong, but in the end a national selection committee made up of 23 experts voted in the winners.
A statement said: "The two inductees are fantastic examples of the two extremes in the world of play. One is so strategic. It's rule-driven. It's something that adults play and puzzle over and at the other extreme is a toy that's pure fun. It has no rules. No one wins or loses. You squeeze it. You float it. It's so silly, so fun."
Chess can be traced back centuries to an ancient Indian war game, but evolved into the game it is today by 1475. The rubber duck has been a fixture in pop culture for decades. Rubber toys first appeared in the late 1880s, but no one knows exactly who created the idea of the rubber duck.
Would You Believe Beer Is As Good As Therapy For Some People
According to a health expert, alcohol could be good therapy for some people.
The conversation was over the need for psychotherapy. The health official said in the debate that instead of more psychotherapists some people just need a beer.
The comment was recorded and publicized and it caused some uproar for coming across as insensitive.
He later said his comment was "unfortunate", though he still stands by his feeling that some people just need a warm bottle of beer to treat their issues, like not being able to sleep.

Man's New Best Friend.. A Car?
Toyota is going to unveil a single occupancy concept car that reads a driver's emotions-- and bonds with the person.
The FV2 has technology that allows the driver and car to develop a relationship of trust and understanding similar to that between a rider and a horse.
The car uses voice and image recognition to determine the driver's mood and can check driving history to suggest destinations.
Drivers will operate it by standing up and shifting their body intuitively to move the vehicle forwards and backwards, as well as left and right, because the car does not have a steering wheel.
