‘Customised’ Jaguar
If you’re immensely proud of your car, and your co-workers are fond of pranks, you may end up with something like this: the workers at InPhonic covered the Jaguar S-Type with 14,000 Post-It notes.

Authorities Prank Hoax Caller
15 fake 911 calls had been made by the same cell phone number in Knoxville, Tennessee. So they phoned the number and left a message telling the owner that he’d won a gift card.

False Limb for Three-Legged Cow
The cow, who lives in northern Tasmania, fell down an embankment two months ago and had to have a leg amputated. Her owner is seeking someone to make a prosthetic limb for the heifer, who is valuable breeding stock.

Oh come on! People aare STILL falling for the old "pick up your prize" trick? I guess since people are still falling for the Nigerian scams, this can't be too far behind. What would that guy have done if someone had died while the firefighters were out on one of his fake calls? I hope the fifteen felony sentences are run consecutively. There are days when I wonder about the stupidity of the human race. Other days, I don't wonder - I know!

The note about the Inphonic Post-It Note Jaguar is terrific, and I just love the haiku!
