Grandma's ashes given to Goodwill by mistake
The staff at a Goodwill store in Fenton, Mich., are trying to find the person who donated an urn containing grandma’s ashes. In a pile of donations, the staff recently found a box labeled “Grandma’s Urn,” and in it a sealed vase containing human remains. “It’s got to be the No. 1 or 2 weirdest item we’ve ever received,” said manager Allen Ryckman. He suspects the ashes were donated inadvertently as “part of a house clean-out.”

New Age fitness guru saves Chelsea Clinton’s marriage
Chelsea Clinton’s marriage has been saved by a New Age fitness and “tantric-sex guru,’’ says the National Enquirer. The marriage of the former First Daughter, 31, to investment banker Marc Mezvinsky ran into trouble after just a few months, with Mezvinsky quitting his job to ski in Wyoming and leaving Chelsea behind in New York. In desperation, Clinton turned to trainer Simone Ayesa, who teaches fitness, yoga, and tantric-sex techniques to A-list celebrities. “After just a few sessions, Simone was able to get Chelsea and Marc to relax,” says a source. “It was nothing short of a small miracle.”

Police nab a one-legged burglar
Australian police have caught a one-legged burglar by following a trail of one-legged footprints. David Phillips, 44, was tracked after burglarizing a series of homes. “It was not the hardest series of crimes to solve as he cuts a pretty distinctive figure with one leg,” said a police spokesman. “By the time he left a trail in the mud, even Inspector Clouseau might have managed to collar him.”
