The Morning Brain Buster:

Q: Over 1/2 of the people surveyed said they would definitely re-gift THIS if they were given it this year.

A: Candles

 

Bonehead Of The Day:

A man accidentally shot a woman while hunting deer in the woods of LaFayette, Georgia, and now they are officially in love.

The two friends were spending time together when the guy saw a pack of deer across the street and decided to hunt them down.

The young woman stayed behind but later went to find him after she thought she heard him calling her name.

He heard rustling and saw some movement behind the trees, and that's when he shot her in the leg.

He wrapped her wound with his jacket and waited for days for her to wake up in the hospital.

When she woke up, he read a letter that explained how much he cared for her, and they officially became a couple.

In spite of their happy ending, the man was arrested for firing a gun within 150 feet of road and she may have to have her leg amputated if it becomes infected.

The Worlds Most Popular Liqour Is?

Vodka and tequila have nothing on the world's most popular liquor, which you may have never tried, or heard of. It's a South Korean booze called soju, which has topped a best-selling-drink list for years and sold 65 million cases this year alone.

It's popular because its alcohol content is usually around 25%, which is perfect for a few refills without passing out.

Bars from London to New York to San Francisco are hawking soju drinks, often with sweet fruit flavors to make them go down easy.

Dentist Buys John Lennon Tooth Says He'll Produce A Clone Of The Late Singer By 2040.. Bonus Elvis Too!

A Canadian dentist believes that he can clone the late Elvis Presley and Beatles' singer, John Lennon, using DNA from their teeth.

Dr. Michael Zuk paid $30,000 for Lennon's tooth and claims that a Lennon clone could be walking the planet as early as 2040, which would be Lennon's 100th birthday.

Zuk claims the same process used to clone Dolly the Sheep in 1996 could also be used to bring Lennon and Presley back to life, adding that there's no legal problem with his plans.

He added that we could soon see clones of other famous people in history including JFK, Martin Luther King, and Marilyn Monroe.

For Sale Wife And/Or Harley

A Virginia man whose wife told him to choose between her and his Harley Davidson motorcycle is inviting offers for either online.

The man posted an ad on Craigslist that said, "Wife says: 'Harley goes or she goes'... Your choice. Both in excellent condition: $5,900."

He says he will consider best offers under his target price and also trade-ins, and he is also offering either a pick-up or delivery service.

The funny ad reads, "Sportster: 2006 XL1200L Sportster in excellent condition. Wife: 1959 model year in excellent condition, considering."

He added, "Sportster: Well maintained... and it shows - see the pictures. Wife: High maintenance - and it shows - see the pictures."

No word on whether or not he had any takers.
