Back From The Dead! Lifeless Dog Beats The Odds

Every dog has his day and today luck was on Nalu’s side.

Santa Monica firefighters brought the 10-year-old Bichon Frise/Shih Tzu back to life after rescuing Nalu from a burning apartment building.

Firefighter Andrew Klein spent 20 minutes performing mouth-to-snout on the dog, as her owner watched on in desperation.

Today the pooch is recovering after spending 24-hours in an oxygen chamber.

Toe-tally Gross! Bar Patron Swallows Human Toe

TOE

(CNN) — Even in the best of circumstances, Dawson City’s famed Sourtoe Cocktail doesn’t go down smoothly.

On Saturday night, however, the cocktail’s marquee ingredient — an actual human toe — went down a way it was never meant to.

Served by the Sourtoe Cocktail club at Dawson City’s Downtown Hotel, the Sourtoe can be any drink — what makes it a Sourtoe Cocktail is the addition of a real, preserved amputated toe, which is dropped into the glass.

As reported by CBC News, on Saturday, an American visiting the town in Yukon, for the summer downed his Sourtoe Cocktail, toe and all.

The mixer of choice was reportedly a shot of whiskey.

The apparently satisfied boozer immediately paid the requisite $500, the bar’s posted fine for swallowing the toe.

This isn’t the first time the toe has been swallowed, but Terry Lee, the bartender on duty Saturday night, thinks it’s the first time the toe has been swallowed deliberately.

“Lee says the tradition will continue, as the bar has a backup toe,” reported the CBC.

‘If you have a spare toe, we need one’

In addition, according to the CBC, the fine for swallowing the toe has been bumped to $2,500.

A donated toe is being sought as a replacement.

“We like to have two toes — we switch them off once a week … and now we can’t do that … we need toes. We’re putting it out there, if you have a spare toe, hey we need one,” Lee told the CBC.

Although nobody seems sure of the origins of the drink, it first appeared in 1973 when drinkers who consumed a glass of Champagne or beer that contained the toe could then declare themselves true “sourtoers.”

The name is a play on “sourdough,” a term for longtime residents of the Yukon and neighboring Alaska.

Today, the toe can be placed in any drink but one rule still applies: “You can drink it fast, you can drink it slow — but the lips have gotta touch the toe.”

Some 60,000 people have reportedly tried the Sourtoe cocktail to date.Sourtoe Cocktail Club, Downtown Hotel, Dawson City, Yukon; Sourtoe Cocktail: $5.80

Family of 13-year-old autistic boy receives hate-filled letter urging them to ‘euthanize’ their son for being a neighborhood nuisance

austistic

CNN — An Ontario family is in shock after receiving an anonymous letter — purportedly from a neighbor — imploring them to euthanize their autistic son or move out of the neighborhood because of the “nuisance” the teen poses to the community.

“That noise he makes when he is outside is DREADFUL! It scares the hell out of my normal children!!!!!” said the letter aimed at 13-year-old Max Begley. “They should take whatever non retarded body parts he possesses and donate it to science.”

The letter, signed “One pissed off mother,” told the family to “go live in a trailer in the woods with your wild animal kid” and to “(do) the right thing and move or euthanize him!”

“Either way we are all better off.”

“Disgusting” is the word Max’s father, James Begley, said comes to mind when he thinks about the letter. “I cannot believe that someone would think that in this day and age.”

Begley said the letter was delivered to Max’s grandmother’s house, about 15 minutes from the Begley home in Oshawa, a town 40 miles from Toronto.

“I work and my wife has (multiple sclerosis),” Begley said. “So Max’s grandmother helps us out a lot. He is over there three to four times a week.”

Durham Regional Police said the incident is being investigated, and police have asked the Crown Attorney’s Office whether the letter constitutes a crime.

Crime or not, Begley is concerned.

“If someone is sick enough to not only have those thoughts, but to write those thoughts out and then to mail them” he said, then “they should be considered dangerous. We are all concerned.”

Despite the “one bad apple” as Begley described the letter’s author, his spirit has been buoyed by others who have rallied around Max. “The neighbors have been wonderful” he said.Max is going into the eighth grade this year and his dad said he is not aware exactly of what has happened, “but he sure is getting a kick out of all of the attention.”

It’s not that unusual for dogs to chew on a kid’s toy… or even a piece of clothing.

But for a 7-year old golden retriever in minnesota… its appetite ended with emergency surgery.

The Moment A Drunk Driver Flees Police, Crashes, Runs, And Is Stopped By A TASER

Laurel, MD — The Laurel Police Department in Maryland had their hands full with this genius.

They responded to a call about a woman on the wrong side of the road. Turns out she was intoxicated (shocker), but then things really get interesting.

As any dumb criminal would, she speeds away from Police, on the wrong side of the road and into a telephone pole.

After that, she runs from the scene and then Police taser her!

The video was captured using an AXON on-officer video camera and released by TASER.com

CAUGHT ON TAPE: Man On Crusade To Catch Woman Stealing Amazon Package From Porch

Phoenix, AZ — It’s not quite the crime of the century, but one man is getting creative when it comes to catching a woman caught on tape stealing a package from his porch.

At first, Tim Lake thought the video was a new neighbor stopping by to say hello. But then he saw the blonde-haired woman grab the Amazon package and run off.

To try to catch the person, Lake created a very tongue-in-cheek poster and plastered it around his neighborhood.

SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO

The poster makes light of what happened, in both its description of the suspect and the circumstances surrounding the theft.

It also describes the woman as having eyes “lacking a soul” and her height as “about yay” high.

Lake even created an email account, heatherbraedrivejustice@aol.com, for tips leading to her arrest.

He said he’s making light of the situation since the package only contained some K-cup coffee pods and an ice cube tray.

However, he knows it could have been something more expensive, which is why he’s trying to spread the word about the theft in a creative way.

In addition to the posters, Lake filed a report with Phoenix police.
