Some lightly salted absurdities from all over...

At the extreme left-hand of the bell curve

Gerand Ratcliff, 45, of Pleasant Grove, Alabama, decided to steal a car.  And then he took it back to his home.  Which was pretty stupid, as the car had a GPS tracking device on board.  Which led the police to the car.  And thence to Gerand.  And to Gerand's house.  And to the two kilos of cocaine and the $250,000 in cash.  

Bonus: Gerand offered the police $50,000 not to arrest him.


Things to worry about

In October, hunters who had shot two elk near Narvik, Norway were informed that they had inadvertently wandered into an area of the Polar Park zoo.

And that, thanks to them, the zoo’s rare elk population was now down to three.

Unclear on the concept

Him:  Hey, it was good to see you tonight.  Fancy meeting up again?

Her:  Sorry for the delay!  Was lovely to meet you but not sure we had that chemistry.  Hope you had a good evening, take care x

Him:  How about I cook dinner for you tomorrow and we'll see what happens?  If we don't click, we can leave it.  We communicate naturally.  Its a good start.  Let's give us a chance.

Her:  Sorry but I wouldn't go to someone's house when I barely know them.  Unfortunately I'm overly romantic and a big believer in feeling some kind of spark early on. Wish you all the best though.

Him::  Ok, fair enough.  Can you pay me back for your coffee? I don't like wasting money.  Prefer to use it on a date with someone else.

Her:  It's a shame you consider a date to be a waste when it doesn't end on your terms.  How about I donate £3.50 to a charity of your choice to give you a chance to regain some decorum?

Him:  I'd like to decide what to do with my money.  Please pay me back into my bank account: [bank details inserted].

She declined to pay.
