It must be true…
I read it in the tabloids
A work of conceptual art at a Harrisburg, Pa., museum that featured a children’s swing set was destroyed when a mother and child tried to play on it. Artist Sean Matthews spent more than 60 hours welding the piece so that the chains of the swings were suspended in midair. But 10 minutes into the exhibition’s grand opening, the mom and daughter pulled the swings down so they could use them, breaking the chains and wrecking the installation. “I looked away for a moment and then, boom, it’s down,” said museum director Anne Schwab. “We were just devastated.”
A French seaside town has banned swimming at its beaches after a lonely, sexually frustrated dolphin began making passes at bathers. Wildlife experts say that the lustful male mammal, nicknamed Zafar, is in heat. But with no female dolphins around, Zafar has taken to rubbing up against swimmers and kayaks in the waters off Landévennec. Mayor Roger Lars said he had no choice but to bar swimming in the area. The amorous dolphin blocked one female swimmer from returning to shore, and “even lifted up a woman bather [out of the water] with his snout.”
A paranormal investigator in Connecticut was arrested after he opened fire in his home, telling police that he’d been aiming at a ghostly intruder. Christian Devaux called 911 to report a masked man in his house, and while on the phone with dispatchers fired two shots. When police arrived, they found bullet holes in a wall but no evidence of a break-in or an intruder. Devaux told officers “there are some things he just can’t explain, like seeing ghosts.” He was later charged with illegal discharge of a gun and reckless endangerment.
