Police Arrest a Man Who Tried To Hide His Gun Under a Plant at the Airport

So you get to the airport and realize you brought your GUN.  You don't want the TSA to confiscate it but you don't have time to take it home or you'll miss your flight.  WHAT DO YOU DO?  The answer is . . . not this.


On June 24th, 69-year-old Soren Muir Johnson of Eagle Point, Oregon was flying out of Portland and realized he had his loaded gun with him.


So he came up with a plan:  He'd hide the gun underneath a PLANTER BOX in the airport.  That way, he could just grab it when he got back from his trip.


But security watched him hide the gun . . . and he was arrested for reckless endangerment.  By the way, if you find yourself in this situation, you ARE allowed to put a gun in your checked luggage.  You have to declare it when you check in, the gun can't be loaded, and it has to be in a hard, locked container.

Mount Si wildfire inches closer to homes
The wild fire on Mt. Si continues in North Bend!  This is a few miles from my home in Snoqualmie, and one of the most beautiful areas in the world!  Say a prayer for the fire fighters and people who live in the area.

What are You Kidding Me Story: He did what to impress his girlfriend?

Out of the land of Ellen Tailor & her beautiful family, out of Greece … Not very Impressive

Police were called to the scene of a shooting…it was a 16 year-old boy who claimed to have accidently shot himself in the foot.  And he had…had indeed shot himself right in the foot, but after more questioning the young man began to panic and admitted that he had actually shot himself in the foot on PURPOSE.  Why?  Because he said he was trying to impress a girl so he made up the story.  Because apparently the women in Greece are impressed with men who can’t handle a gun???

What are You Kidding Me Story: He Called 9-1-1 eighty different times because..

Out of Florida … Special Delivery

Jarvis Sutton is a moron..Serious…this is almost too stupid for the What are You Kidding Me Story!  Jarvis called 9-1-1 and said he was in dire need of three things…apparently he had to have three things to survive and he made this request of 9-1-1 eighty different times on Sunday.  What did he want?  He called and asked 9-1-1 to have someone bring him burgers, weed (yes he wanted some happy salad), and of course he wanted to wash it all down with Cherry Kool Aid.

What are You Kidding Me Story: Darth Vader get's punched!

Out of England … The Force was with him

Ikbal Hare went to the dark side over the weekend when he punched…yes punched a woman.  But you should know it was sort of an accident, because he was actually trying to punch the woman’s husband, but that dude ducked and powie…Ikbal hit her right in the kisser knocking her out. 

And while all of that is somewhat interesting…the only reason this is a what are you kidding me story is because of the hubby’s name.  The guy that Ikbal was trying to punch…that guy’s name is Darth Vader.  Yep, his real name is Darth Vader and Ikbal says Darth was flirting with is wife.

What are You Kidding Me Story: Stripped

Out of England … The Bare Facts

20 year-old Maria Badea is not a bad looking stripper…she looks like most strippers with the weird piercings, the juicy tramp stamp, and sure the light is on but no one is home…but she looks great.  So she was getting frustrated with another stripper she worked with there at the French Pussycat Club. 

She was upset with Gina who had just gotten herself some new breasts and a nose job.  Gina “the pole spinning” diva was stealing all of Maria’s lap dancing clients so she confronted her and Gina told her to…well…to shove it.  So Maria began to use her new boobies as speed bags….yep…she boxed her boobies and then finished her off with a head butt to that new nose.  Maria won the fight, but she will likely lose her job and be in jail.

What are You Kidding Me Story: The FBI uses Twitter!

What are You Kidding Me ... Catch Me if You Can

In January, 60-year-old Wanda Lee Ann Podgurski of Manhattan Beach, California was convicted of 29 felony counts of insurance and disability fraud.  
She'd worked as an Amtrak clerk, and ended up faking a disability on the job.  She collected more than $650,000 and used it to travel the world.  But when she was due to be sentenced to 20 years in prison . . . she never showed up.



U.S. marshals have been trying to track her down ever since.  And they got a BIG break on June 5th . . . when Wanda decided to TAUNT them on Twitter.  She tweeted, quote, "Catch me if you can."


And thanks to that tweet . . . they COULD.  They were able to trace it to Rosarito, Mexico, where Wanda was arrested last week.  On Monday, she was back in court for jumping bail.  Whatever sentence she gets from that will be tacked on to her 20 years.

What are You Kidding Me Story: She flashed who with what?

Out of California … Flash Dancing

This story is both creepy and funny…it is creepy because 61 year old Nick Bowen has a girlfriend by the name of Wenyi Xu, and Wenyi is only 30.  Creepy!  And the funny and perverted part is that they went to a park and Nick was filming people’s reaction to being flashed by Wenyi.  And it was all going down with out much incident until one young boy was so mesmerized by Wenyi’s “who whos” that he literally fell off of his bicycle! The cops were called and arrests were made.   

Let's be friends on Facebook!

What are You Kidding Me: A 600 pound chicken?

Out of Florida … Cluck Cluck

Ben Smith called the police and reported that he had just heard “screaming and hollering” in his backyard.  And when he rushed outside he was horrified to see three young men stealing…I said stealing his 600 pound purple chicken!  And they did it with style because they hooked a chain around the huge aluminum chicken, and then one of the kids jumped on it’s back as they pulled the big bird down the road with a truck!  This went on for over a mile before they were easily arrested.

The 10 Most Annoying Things kids Do on a Play Date

Found this on a mom blog.  What do you think of these?

The key to a bad playdate is a monster kid, and if they do anything on this list, they're not going to be invited back:

1. Eating out of my fridge without asking. I always make sure I have plenty of snacks on hand when there are kids over, and chances are you COULD have that yogurt or popsicle. But I might have been saving it for something special (you know, like my lunch). All you had to do was ask.

2. Being mean to my dog. This is HER house, and she deserves to be safe here (that's why I rescued her in the first place!).

3. Leaving dirty socks in the middle of my living room floor. We're a barefoot family, and whipping your socks off to run outside is pretty common. But trust me, smelling my own kid's stinky ones is enough for me. It may not be a dealbreaker, but it's not exactly endearing.

4. Treating my furniture like a jungle gym. I give the really little ones a pass (my friend's 4-year-old is still a bit of a climber, and she is also very good about lecturing him about not climbing my furniture). But if you're 8 years old, you're old enough to know better than to stand on the back of my couch or throw yourself into my dining room chairs.

5. Ignoring me when I talk to you. I don't care how shy you are. When you are in my house, and I ask you whether you want a PB&J or a ham sandwich, you answer me! 

6. Encouraging my daughter to be naughty. My kid is not an angel. I know she'll get up to hijinx all by herself, but when I can hear you in her bedroom trying to convince her to disobey me, you are reminding me to lose your phone number.

7. Wasting food. If you don't like the way I make mac and cheese, that's fine. But don't go for seconds when you didn't even finish your first helping ... and then leave it all on the plate.

8. Not taking "no" for an answer. I'm a pretty easygoing mom, and when my daughter has a friend over, I don't hover. When I say "no," I have a very good reason. If you can't listen to my rules, I can't guarantee to your mom that you'll be safe at my house.

9. Being mean to my kid. I expect her to be nice to you, and I will discipline her if she isn't. I expect the same from you.

10. Demanding electronics. You're here to play with my kid, not use our XBox or watch TV. Get your butt outside!

What are You Kidding Me Story: Darth Vader can run how fast?

Out of California ... Hot, Hot, Hot

If you think it's hot out, try THIS:  Every year in Death Valley, California, there's something called the Badwater Ultramarathon, where a bunch of crazy people run 135 MILES in temperatures that top 120 DEGREES.  (Read more about it here.  This year's event starts July 15th.)

It's an extreme sport called "heat running."  But apparently running in extreme heat gets boring after a while.  So a guy named Jonathan Rice added a new element.  For the past few years, he's been going to Death Valley and running one-mile sprints in a full DARTH VADER costume.  He calls it the "Darth Valley Challenge," and it's actually becoming POPULAR.  Now other runners are showing up dressed as "Star Wars" characters . . . including Princess Leia, R2-D2, Chewbacca, and Yoda.  This year, Rice did it in 129-degree heat, and clocked in at six minutes, thirty-six seconds.  That's about 20 seconds shy of his personal record.  But he was specifically trying to set a world record for the "hottest verified run."  The official temperature when he started his run was 129 degrees.  He's still waiting to hear back from Guinness.

Just Keep Swiming

() There are few things that strike panic into the hearts of parents like seeing a baby fall into the open water.

But a video uploaded to YouTube in August of 2012, which just recently went viral, shows one baby who appears to be a remarkable exception.  The 16-month old baby girl is recorded jumping into a 3-foot deep pool and swimming from one to the other face-down, rolling onto her back only when she’s tired or needs air, her parents say.

“Just so everyone knows, I am a registered nurse and my wife was a life guard for six years and taught swimming for three,” the video’s description says. “[Not] only are we both professionally trained in CPR and water safety I am certified in advanced pediatric life support. [The] child in the video (Elizabeth) has been trained properly by ISR certified instructors.”

ISR is a program designed to teach infants to swim.

The description proceeds to describe Elizabeth as “a very determined little girl,” adding that at no point was she forced to do anything she was “unwilling to try.”

“I was 100% prepared to jump in at first sign of distress.”

The video has been viewed nearly 892,000 times as of this article’s writing.

What are You Kidding Me Story: Foiled

Out of New Zealand … Stupid is and stupid does

Here is a quick one for you….we don’t have a name for these two lovely ladies so we will call them Laverne and Shirley.  And we know that Laverne and Shirley are in their 50s and don’t have a clue how to smuggle the happy salad through an airport.  We know that because they just got busted trying to smuggle marijuana through airport by stuffing, and I do mean stuffing their bra’s with the Loony leaf.  And that isn’t really the WHAT ARE YOU KIDDING ME part…the WHAT ARE YOU KIDDING ME part is the fact that before covering the weed with their bras they covered it with TIN FOIL!  Yeah, they aren’t quite clear on the whole medal detector thing.

What are You Kidding Me Story: She uses her wheelchair to do what??

Out of Indiana … Ringing the Bell

Amber Harvey got the late night craving that does not stop…I’m talking about that craving for Taco Bell.  It was almost 2 in the morning but that did not stop Amber for getting on her motorized wheelchair and heading to the border, and since she was in a wheel chair she decided to just go through the drive-thru, but the drive thru worker refused to serve her.  Apparently there is a policy that says they can’t serve anyone not in a car.  Well then little Amber rolled around to the front door which was locked.  Well that was unacceptable to her so she backed up her wheel chair and took a run…a roll at it!  And she did this repeatedly until the door shattered.  And then she rolled across the street and got herself a meal at a bar and grill where she ended up being arrested for doing almost $2,000 in damage to the Bell.
