Bonehead Of The Day:

 

An 18-year-old in West Lafayette, IN tried to imitate the "Grand Theft Auto" video game by stealing a mini-van and running into cars.

The guy climbed behind the wheel of his mom's mini-van and started playing a real-life version of the game.  He hit six cars and ran into a pedestrian. The woman was seriously injured.

He told cops he did it on purpose because he wanted to act out a real-life version of his favorite video game.

He was arrested and thrown in jail on a host of charges.

No Go.. Fight Between DMX & George Zimmerman Has Been Called Off

 

The celebrity boxing match between DMX and George Zimmerman was called off by its promoter.

The reason: threats were made against him.

The three-round match would have put Zimmerman up against X, who is known more for his history of arrests than his music.

Zimmerman was found not guilty in the shooting death of black teenager Trayvon Martin.

Damon Feldman said on Twitter that the match was off after generating a public outcry.

He wrote: "Done with George Zimmerman if you had a major payday sitting in front of you, I know no one else would walk away like I did ***Next!!"

Feldman was dealing with a ton of criticism after the fight between Zimmerman and DMX was announced last Wednesday, which was also Trayvon Martin's birthday.

Civil rights leader Reverend Al Sharpton warned people against glorifying Zimmerman and a "Cancel George Zimmerman's 'Celebrity' Boxing Match" Facebook page got 315,000 "likes."

The fight had been first set for March 1st and was then switched to March 15th.

A spokesman for DMX released a statement saying X never agreed to the fight and it wouldn't affect his concert schedule.

Best Gift For Your Valentine?  A Kiss!

 

Women would rather have gestures like a goodbye kiss for Valentine's Day than expensive gifts.

Researchers found only 34% of women said they wanted underwear as a gift, while twice as many, 65% liked flowers.

But many women just wanted gestures like a romantic walk or a goodbye kiss in the morning.

Men also like gestures with many saying they would like a homemade meal cooked for them or a flirtatious text or phone message. But some say a romantic weekend away would be nice.
