There’s been a few crazy news stories circling the web so I decided to bring back Crazy New Stories! I can not think of a better way to end a long week than gawking at some ridiculousness. Here are a couple funny, disturbing, and crazy news stories that made headlines just this past week:
- Surprising News: Drunken Vegetarians Secretly Eat Meat
If you have any vegetarian friends, you might not want to tell them that you’re in on their secret. A recent article in the Huffington Posts revealed that more than a third of vegetarians admit to eating meat after drinking alcohol. The study was of close to 2000 vegetarians in the UK. Of the third who admitted to giving in, 26% said they indulged “often” while drunk and 22% said “rarely?” The most popular foods to cheat on were kebabs and burgers with kebabs coming in at 39% and burgers coming in at 34%. Still, post hangover regret is real. Almost 70 percent of vegetarians say they do not admit to anyone after they’ve eaten meat. How sneaky!
- Ohio Man Gets Too Stoned on Weed, Calls Police
This 22-year-old man in Austintown, Ohio was so high that he had to call police to complain about it. Police responded at about 5:20 p.m. and found him groaning on floor in fetal position. It gets better. Police report that the man was “surrounded by a plethora of Doritos, Pepperidge Farm Goldfish and Chips Ahoy cookies,” and he complained about not being able to feel his own hands.From his home, police recovered a glass pipe with marijuana residue along with two pacts of rolling paper, two roaches and a jar of marijuana. The man declined medical treatment and has not be charged for a crime as of yet.
- Man Calls Police after His Girlfriend Refuses to Have Sex with Him
Okay, so this one is a bit ridiculous and if the police got a call every time this happened, I’m pretty sure their phone systems would crash. Continuing on, a Carolina man called 911 to report that his girlfriend was refusing to have sex with him. To make matters worse, this was right when flooding from Hurricane Joaquin was going on. Patrick Dogett, 53, apparently had been drinking all day and called the police stating his woman “would not give him any a**” Later police found him feeling blue outside his home in the early morning hours Tuesday cursing loud and profusely. Dogett was arrested for public drunkenness but has since been released.
- ‘Drunk’ UConn Student Gets Arrested After Demanding ‘F–king Mac And Cheese’
There’s a viral video going around the internet of a university student getting completely irate over being denied the privilege of eating macaroni and cheese. Luke Gatti, 19, of Bayville, New York was charged for a breach of peace and criminal trespass. In the video, Gatti can be seen in the video titled “”Drunk Kid Wants Mac And Cheese,” demanding the managers at the Union Street Market to give him some mac and cheese.
“Just give me some f–king bacon, jalapeno mac and cheese,” Gatti stated. Gatti was denied entry due to underage drinking and carrying an open container of alcohol.
- Broward’s First Flakka Baby Dies after Just One Hour
This story is more sad than crazy. Unfortunately the implications of using flakka are starting to reveal themselves in newborns in an insane way. Most people know about Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome when it comes to drugs like heroin and alcohol however the effects of flakka use during pregnancy was unknown. However, now in Florida, Broward County was first to witness the youngest, most innocent victim of the street drug flakka. The baby was born premature, only weighed 3 pounds and lived only one hour. The death was ruled a, “result of prematurity and alpha-PVP (flakka) toxicity.”Reports show the mother refused prenatal care or medication during her pregnancy and was previously discharged from Broward Health Medical Center June 20 after spending a month under psychological evaluation. When will the flakka craziness stop?
So overall we have burger-eating vegetarian and a Doritos galore to wrap up our week. If your name is not on the list, that’s awesome. Let’s keep it that way! Crazy can be funny to read about but often being the one involved in the craziness is not as cracked up as you think it to be.
