Bonehead Of The Day:

A drunken Iowa City man was pulled from a creek while claiming to be "Peggy Hill" in search of four Girl Scouts he had lost.

Cops were called after people heard him crying for help from the creek. When they got there, he told them his name was "Peggy Hill, from Arlington Texas."

He told cops he had lost four Girl Scouts and begged for help finding them. He said he wanted to help them earn a merit badge.

Cops arrested him for public intoxication and sent him to the hospital to get checked out first.

Some Good News..  Gas Prices Going Down!

The national average price of gasoline fell almost 14 cents to $3.38. That's the biggest drop since last November.

The average price fell in the last two weeks as refiners continued to pass on lower crude oil prices. The average price of just over $3.38 per gallon was down about 45 cents from a year ago and the two-week drop of almost 14 cents a gallon was the largest since November of last year.

But drivers should enjoy it while they can because "the price declines might be coming to an end right now."

It would take another big decline in crude oil prices to let price decreases at the pump continue.

St. Louis had the least expensive gasoline in the country at $3.01 per gallon. Drivers in San Francisco paid the most at $3.88 per gallon.

The Wussification Of America..  Middle School Bans Baseballs, Footballs & Other Athletic Equipment

 A Long Island school has banned sports equipment to protect students from getting injured during recess.

The list of banned items includes footballs, baseballs, lacrosse balls, or anything that might hurt someone on school grounds.

Use of any of the banned items, as well as permission to do cartwheels, can only be approved under the supervision of a coach.

The ban could soon become a trend, with several districts outside of the area contacting the district for more information.

Would You Want To Know When You'll Die?  You Can With This Watch

A new watch can now determine when you're going to die... down to the second.

You fill out a survery and answer questions about your medical history, then the watch, called the Tikker, calculates when your time here on Earth is going to run out.

The watch starts counting down to the exact second when it guesstimates you'll be dead.

Instead of being morbid, the creator says the watch is actually a way for us to enjoy the time that we have left on Earth; to be aware of our mortality in order to not waste our time.

Woman Keeps 50 Skunks In Her Home As Pets

An Ohio woman runs America's only rescue center for skunks, and keeps 50 of the animals in her own home.

The skunks are given free reign of the five-bedroom house, even sleeping on her bed.

She said, 'A lot of people think we're weird to like pet skunks and they always say, "Why do you want a pet skunk" and I ask them, "Why do you want a pet dog?"

She added, 'It's the same reason - skunks can be loveable, devoted animals.'


The woman says the skunks have different personalities, and that she spends three hours every morning and evening cleaning the smelly creatures.

She also has a long-time boyfriend who tolerates her love for skunks.

Embarracing..  Man Has To Be Rescued By Firefighters From His Toaster..  Guess What Was Stuck...

Firefighters (in London) came to the rescue of a man who got his penis stuck in a toaster.

It is unclear exactly what the guy had been up to, but the authorities were able to successfully free his manhood from the electrical device.

This isn't the first time that emergency responders had to rescue a guy's manhood from a strange place- another man stuck his penis in a vaccuum.

In the last three years the capital's fire crews have also been called out to 79 incidents involving people being trapped in handcuffs, 9 instances of men with rings stuck on their penises, and 4 incidents where people had their hands stuck in blenders.
