Mounted buffalo head falls off wall and traps ownerA Florida man had to be rescued by emergency services after a mounted buffalo head fell off his wall and trapped him in his recliner. Jim Harris, 56, says he was “just sitting there watching the news” when—“kabbam”—everything went dark. Unable to lift the several-hundred-pound head off him, Harris called 911 on his cell phone and was eventually freed by sheriff’s deputies. “This is karma,” said Harris. “Someone shot this thing and now it’s payback. But he got the wrong fella. I didn’t shoot him.”

Balinese man claims cow was a reincarnated womanA young Balinese man caught in a compromising position with a local cow has been forced to marry the animal. Ngurah Alit, 18, claims the cow was actually a reincarnated woman and had flirted with him. Village chieftain Ida Bagus Legawa, however, insisted that Alit marry the cow to cleanse the village of “defilement from the incident.” Alit’s mother screamed throughout the ceremony, and Alit himself fainted. “Poor kid,” said one villager. “He’s actually a quiet kid.”
