Bonehead Of The Day:

A retired guy in Pittsburgh is finally finding the time to be who he really feels that he is inside - a dog named Boomer.

He spends his days wearing his dog costume, eating dog food out of a bowl, chomping on milk bones, sleeping in his homemade dog house and barking at the mailman.

He isn't always "Boomer", he still enjoys pizza and isn't always wearing his costume.

He says he got inspiration to be a dog in his childhood but has only recently been able to be Boomer in his daily life.

Some of his friends are supportive of his dog lifestyle, but his half-sister in California thinks he's out of his dog gone mind.

New Virus Locks Your Files Forever, Unless You Pay Ransom

Some new malware called CryptoLocker has been hitting computers pretty hard over the past couple of weeks. The program latches onto your computer and encrypts your important files - holding them ransom until you pay them to be set free.

Only those that run the malware have the ability to unlock your files and they're asking $300 in order to unlock them within a few days.

The online thugs lock down your documents, your music library and your photos - what they assume to be important work documents. Your computer works normally otherwise but that huge iTunes playlist you've been creating for years now is just as good as gone unless you decide to pay up.

To protect yourself, be sure you back up your computer and also be sure your anti-virus software is up to date.

The Last Blockbuster Store Is Closing Soon

The ability to watch a classic film from your childhood that only a dusty video store would have is about to gone. Blockbuster has decided to close out their final stores across the country.

There are about 300 Blockbuster stores left. Ten years ago there were 9,000 Blockbuster stores around the US, but online streaming options and one-day rentals like Redbox destroyed their business model.

Even though Blockbuster stores will be gone, their online streaming options will still be up and running and so will the Blockbuster brand.

So This is Possible..  Man Sues His Wife After She Has Extremely Ugly Baby

A man in China divorced and then sued his ex-wife for giving birth to what he called an extremely ugly baby girl… and he won. 

The man first accused his wife of infidelity because he could never father an unattractive child.

When a DNA test proved that the baby was his, the wife revealed that before they met, she had undergone about $100,000 worth of cosmetic surgery in South Korea.

He then sued his ex-wife on the grounds of false pretenses, for not telling him about the plastic surgery and duping him into thinking she was beautiful.

A judge ruled in favor of the man and ordered his ex-wife to fork over $120,000.
