Bonehead Of The Day:

A woman in Florida stabbed her fiancé because he wouldn't drive her to the liquor store.

The woman's fiancé called 911 to report that his woman stabbed him in the stomach. He then told police the woman asked him to take her to the store to buy some liquor, but he refused because he didn't want to drive intoxicated.

The woman got upset and stabbed him with what the man called "a big knife." He was taken to a hospital and he's going to be okay.

The couple was engaged to be married next week but that has changed. The woman will be in court soon.

Starbucks Responds To Dumb Starbucks Store..  A Comedy Central Stunt

A parody coffee shop opened over the weekend in L.A. called Dumb Starbucks.

It mimicked the real Starbucks but puts the word "dumb" in front of everything on the menu.

Starbucks responded by saying, "We appreciate the humor, but they can't use our name." Starbucks is a protected trademark.

At a news conference the people behind the shop admitted the entire thing was a publicity stunt for a Comedy Central program. Nathan Fielder is the guy behind the gag. Fielder is the star of the Comedy Central reality show, "Nathan For You" and he's known for pranks.

The health department ended up shutting the shop down over lack of permits.

Fielder says he can't be sued for using the Starbucks name since he was doing a 'parody' of their brand. Apparently, that protects him from a lawsuit. 

Starbucks wouldn't say if they're planning to sue or not saying, "We're evaluating our options."

Boy With No Birthday Party Guests Now Has Over 13,000 Friends After Story On Facebook

 

 

 

The mother of a young Michigan boy who had no friends to invite to his 11th birthday party created a Facebook page that NOW has over 13,000 likes.

His mom created the page so family friends could wish him happy birthday, because she was heartbroken when he told her he didn't want to have a party because he had no friends to invite.

She was hoping to get about 50 responses, but ended up receiving an outpouring of love and support for her son from around the world.

The boy was diagnosed with sensory processing disorders last year, which are similar to autism and Asbergers syndrome and make it hard for him to socialize.

Mom is planning to keep the secret for almost another month until Colin's birthday and will record his reaction to post on the Facebook page.

Somebody Goofed.. Gas Stations Started Selling Gas For A Penny Per Gallon.. Cue The Chaos

A Shell station in Illinois was the place to be the other day when gasoline that normally sells for about $3.50 a gallon was selling for a penny a gallon.

Word spread. Cars piled up. Police showed up.

It turned out to be  a glitch in the system. The price was back to normal a few hours later.

Nobody knows how many people took advantage of the price error or how much money was lost.
