Bonehead Of The Day:

A 20-year-old man who drove his car down the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art has been charged with reckless endangerment. Those are the same steps featured in the movie "Rocky".

The incident happened last month when the man told the cops his brakes failed. Cops had the brakes checked out then filed the charge against him.

He goes to court next month for his hearing.

Hell Hath No Fury..  Man Moves Into House Next To Ex Wife, Puts Up A Giant Middle Finger Statue

A man in Michigan moved into a house right next to his ex-wife and put up a 12-foot high "middle finger" statue as a tribute to her.

The man moved into the home recently, which happens to be next to the home where his ex-wife now lives with her new lover, whom she had an affair with while she was married.

The angry ex-husband had a plan to get even with the ex-wife and the new lover, but never meant for it to go public. Unfortunately for him, his statue grabbed local attention when the ex-wife's daughter posted a picture of the statue on twitter.

The statue also includes a spotlight to keep it illuminated at all hours of the day.


** By the way, the ex-husband also owns three strip clubs in Detroit and wrote a book about his entrepreneurship, which is being turned into a TV reality series.

Cost Of Thanksgiving Dinner Down From Last Year.. Barely

The cost of a Thanksgiving dinner is down from last year, BUT.... the cost of travel is up. 

The average Turkey Day dinner will cost $49.04 or just 44 cents less this year than it did in 2012… that's mainly due to the price of turkey going down. 

The price of gas is also down about 25 cents less per gallon from a year ago-- but the average cost of a flight is up 9.5% from last year, while the average train ticket is up over 4%.

This Guy Has Over 2,000 Pez Dispensers


A Pennsylvania man collects Pez dispensers as a hobby, and so far, he has over 2,200 of them.

The man works as a writer and film critic and besides the dispensers, he also collects Pez-related posters, advertisements and other related merchandise.

He started collecting them because his wife had 8 of them when they got together, and it became his obsession from there.

He keeps track of the new ones coming out by a calendar made by the people at Pez that lists all of their releases for the year.

While most Pez dispensers are pretty cheap, vintage ones can cost up to $100 or $200 and a couple have gone for several thousand.
