A religious radio station in Washington was off the air for parts of Sunday after thieves pulled the copper wiring from its transmission tower.

Employees showed up and noticed the monitor for the tower was out and the station was off the air.  It cost several thousand dollars to rewire the tower.

Bonehead Of The Day 2... Toronto Mayor.."I Smoked Crack In A Drunken Stupor

Yesterday, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford admitted that he'd used crack.

He was talking with the media when he admitted, "Yes, I have smoked crack cocaine. Am I an addict? No. Have I tried it? Um, probably in one of my drunken stupors, probably approximately a year ago."

There have been calls for his resignation.

But, hours after the crack admission, Mayor Rob Ford went before the cameras and said, "I embarrassed everyone in this city and I will be forever sorry." But he won't be resigning. He said he'll let the voters decide his fate in next October's election.

Nothing Says Relaxing Like A 6 Foot Python Slithering All Over Your Body

Massages involving three 6-foot long pythons are now available in Indonesia.

The snakes are cleaned with anti-septic, have their mouths taped shut and slither over the person's body instead of a masseuse's hands. There are also two trained masseuses on hand for safety.

The massages last 90 minutes and cost $43. One of the clients said the massage has helped him get over his fear of snakes. Most of the clients have come from Europe, Asia and South Korea.

The workers said they take good care of the snakes and even hug and kiss them.
