Weird News or Not Weird News

– A New York City police officer says a scalper arrested for selling fake World Series tickets outside Yankee Stadium tried to convince him to be freed by bribing an officer with seats.  Considering these seats were probably worth $500 a piece I would say he was crafty, not weird.

– A woman in South Korea who tried to pass the written exam for a driver’s license with near-daily attempts since April 2005 has finally succeeded on her 950th time.  That is scary, she is probably gonna kill someone on the road.

– The biggest meatball and one of the dumbest records has landed in the East Coast.  Matthew Mitnitsky, owner of Nonni’s Italian Eatery in Concord, said Sunday that a 222.5-pound (101-kilogram) meatball was authenticated as the world’s largest after being weighed by state weights and measures officials. Ummm, so what?

  1. I wonder what the Concord taxpayer thinks about government officials spending their time & tax dollars weighing meatballs…
