But but but but but I mean DANG this is too good

I know a couple of people have commented that they’d rather I write what’s going on in my own life than recycled news reports but sometimes — I mean it’s just tooooo good to pass up.

Two stories from Reuters Oddly Enough

Bird dog steps on gun, kills hunter

Wed Jan 9, 2008 9:10am EST

HOUSTON (Reuters) – A Houston-area man was killed in a hunting accident after his dog stepped on a loaded shotgun in the back of a pick-up truck, triggering a blast that pierced the vehicle and the hunter’s leg, a local sheriff said.

Perry Price, a 46-year-old math teacher, shot a goose on Saturday then put his gun in the back of the truck where the dog was waiting to retrieve the bird.

“I’ve been in law enforcement 20 years and this is probably the strangest one I’ve had,” said Chambers County Sheriff Joe LaRive.

Investigators found paw prints and mud from the dog, a chocolate Labrador retriever named Arthur, on the shotgun, LaRive said.

Price was taken to a local hospital, but died from a loss of blood after doctors were unable to revive him.

Questions not addressed in the article.  What happened to the dog?   Other questions enter my mind — but they’d probably be considered in bad taste (meaning you need to buy me a Guinness to hear more)

What are you doing here? – man asks wife at brothel

Wed Jan 9, 2008 12:29pm EST

WARSAW (Reuters) – A Polish man got the shock of his life when he visited a brothel and spotted his wife among the establishment’s employees. Polish tabloid Super Express said the woman had been making some extra money on the side while telling her husband she worked at a store in a nearby town.

“I was dumfounded. I thought I was dreaming,” the husband told the newspaper Wednesday.

The couple, married for 14 years, are now divorcing, the newspaper reported.

Question to be answered?  So is he suing her for divorce for her choice of career?  Or is she suing him for divorce for using that type of service.  HEY it is a “store” so to speak?  People go in, they spend money, they get something for the money they spend.   (Sounds like the couple had a general lack of communication).

One response to “But but but but but I mean DANG this is too good

  1. I enjoy the funny news stories. I found the hunting accident story in my search for a suitable story for my 3rd grade son to report on for current events on Friday. I found one about a 10 year old boy in Mexico who did not want to go back to school after the Chirsmas break (I guess you cn call it that in Mexico). He glued himself to his bed. It didn’t work, the paramedics got him unglued in time for school
