Managers at a Michigan Applebee’s restaurant have apologized for serving a toddler tequila rather than apple juice.

Toddler gets tequila by mistake Managers at a Michigan Applebee’s restaurant have apologized for serving a toddler tequila rather than apple juice. Mother Taylor Dill-Reese says she knew something was amiss when her 15-month-old son “started saying ‘Hi’ and ‘Bye’ to the walls,” and that he “eventually laid his head down on the table.” The boy was later found to have a blood alcohol level of 0.10, which would make him legally drunk if he were driving. Applebee’s has promised a full investigation.

Making do with a cowA German teenager whose parents wouldn’t buy her a horse is making do with a cow. Regina Mayer, 15, who lives on a farm, rides the 2-year-old heifer, named Luna, every day, and has trained her to execute jumps as well as follow simple commands such as “stand” and “gallop.” At first, says Mayer, Luna “got a bit peeved” at having a human being on her back, but she has since come to enjoy the experience. “She thinks she’s a horse,” says Mayer.

Driver thought dead passenger was asleepA New Mexico man drove around for three days without realizing that his friend in the passenger seat had died. Jerry Maestas, 64, says he thought Amy Marquez, 33, was merely asleep, but he grew concerned when her skin acquired a bluish pallor and drove to the emergency room. The staff realized immediately that Marquez was dead and alerted police. “There were flies all over, I don’t know how he didn’t know,” said Lt. Christian Lopez. “This guy isn’t running on all cylinders.”
