Bonehead Of The Day:

An out-of-shape crook got caught stealing seafood when he couldn't start his DUI interlock device in Thibodaux, LA.

The 48-year-old waltzed into the store, grabbed a couple of bags of crawfish tails, and then took off running.

By the time he got to his car he was out of breath and couldn't blow enough air into the interlock device to get his car started.

Employees from the store stood outside his car taking pictures and laughing and kept trying to get him to come back inside.

He eventually got the car started and took off. Cops caught up with him a short time later.

He told them he had been at work until 4:30….and cops arrested him ‘after telling him it was not yet 4:30.'

Foodies Nowadays Are Eating Crickets

Eating crickets is the new trend at some restaurants in New York City. 

At one restaurant the bugs were served up in every style… sprinkled on toffee, spread into pate, and skewered on toothpicks to dip in cocktail sauce.

According to one food writer, not only do crickets make for deliciously crunchy treats, but they are also a nutritional source of protein and may well replace meat in our diets in the future.

The Three Day Sugar Detox Will Help You Lose Weight And Look Younger

If you can't get going in the morning without a sugary coffee, need a sweet treat for energy in the afternoon and have tried and failed to cut down on carbs, then you could be a sugar addict. 

Now there's a new book called The Sugar Detox that promises to cure you of that addiction in just three days.

The authors write: 'Sugar truly is addictive: Your body reacts to it like a drug and craves it constantly. What we're asking you to do is to quit - cold turkey.' 

The numerous benefits of cutting down on sugar include losing weight, having more energy and looking younger - because of the adverse effect too much sugar can have on the skin.

The Three-Day Sugar Fix involves no dairy, no fruit aside from lemon or lime, no wheat or starches, and no added sugars.

This means for the first three days, breakfast consists of scrambled or poached eggs, lunch is salads with tuna or chicken, and dinner comes in the form of protein, such as grilled fish, chicken or Tofu, with vegetables. 

The only snacks allowed over the three days include nuts and pepper sticks with hummus and you can only drink green/herbal tea and one black coffee.

Say Goodbye To That Hangover..  New Beer Created Has Electrolytes

Researchers (in Australia) say they have made a beer that will keep people from getting dehydrated while drinking it.  

Electrolytes are minerals in the body that are lost during dehydration.

Testers drank four different kinds of beer. The beer with added electrolytes was a third more effective keeping people hydrated compared to normal beers. (Allegedly), adding electrolytes to the beer did not change the taste.

To make the new beer, researchers had to lower the alcohol content.

Cops Run Out Of Doritos At Pot Festival

The Seattle Police Department was on hand for the city's annual Hempfest to put into action a plan called "Operation Orange Fingers."

Officers handed out free Doritos with stickers about pot laws stuck on the bags.

AND... They gave out the entire stash of free Doritos in about 10 minutes.

Still, the department feels they satisfied the needs of "pretty much everyone who showed up for the morning gate-opening."

Each bag displayed a sticker of do's and don'ts of I-502, Washington's ballot measure that legalized the possession of marijuana in November. The stickers instructed Washingtonians to remember to avoid driving while high, giving or selling weed to people under the age of 21, as well as forgoing pot use in public.

The sticker also said to "Listen to the Dark Side of the Moon at a reasonable volume." The bags also gave munchy lovers a website with more information on state laws, which it calls "marijuwhatnow literature."

Video Of The Day:

Gotta love this.. A woman found herself on the line with a scammer, who she realized wasn't actually someone calling to give her money she had won (it never is), when they asked for her personal information. After realizing she was getting scammed, instead of hanging up on the person on the other end, she decided to play along and prank them - and then post the entire conversation on youtube.
