It must be true…
I read it in the tabloids
A tanker truck carrying 12 tons of liquid chocolate overturned and spilled its sweet load across a Polish highway last week, snarling traffic and creating headaches for cleanup crews. The milk chocolate coated six lanes and soon began to harden, slowing efforts to scrape the congealed candy off the blacktop. “The cooling chocolate is worse than snow,” said firefighter Bogdan Kowalski. Amused cleanup crews eventually melted the chocolate with lots of hot water. “It’s been a long time since I’ve seen so many smiles on the faces of emergency rescue folks,” said a police spokeswoman.
Three well-meaning Texans suffered painful bites after the two feisty kittens they rescued turned out to be wild bobcats. A San Antonio resident said she found the cats in an alley and, not seeing their mother around, brought the animals home. She and two friends fed the felines milk from plastic bottles, but got bitten. The would-be rescuers then realized that the unusually large kittens didn’t “look like your standard house cat—maybe we should call somebody,” said animal welfare worker Lisa Norwood. The bobcats were turned over to a wildlife rescue organization.
A Miami neighborhood is being terrorized by a rooster that attacks dogs, cats, and even people. The bird, named Payo, was rescued from a Santería blood ceremony, and now fiercely defends his new home, charging any creature that passes by; frightened neighbors call him El Terrorista. “Alfred Hitchcock could make a scary movie about him,” one neighbor said. Payo’s owner, Harry Zamora, says the rooster is just protecting his turf. “He’s really a nice guy.” ■
