...because having just one beer isn't enough

Woman tries to strip for money at airport

A nude tourist was arrested at the international airport in Cancun, Mexico as she tried to raise funds for her return airline ticket by stripping in the terminal and asking for money from other tourists.

The woman was identified by Mexican officials as 22 year-old Vera Tulukasova, a Lithuanian national.

A portion of the airport was closed off while police arrested the disrobed woman. "She stripped in front of several dozen confused travelers who were waiting for their flights," according to an airport janitor who witnessed the incident.

Police suspect the woman was under the influence of an unspecified drug.

Police suspect she was on drugs? Come one people- it's freakin' Cancun! Of course she was on drugs. Article here.

Cars run over man on highway, and keep driving!

As many as eight cars hit a man who apparently jumped off the Lake Mary Boulevard overpass onto Interstate 4 during rush hour Monday, according to a Local 6 News report.

Witnesses said several cars were not able to avoid a body in the westbound lanes of I-4 at about 5:45 a.m. near Lake Mary Boulevard.

"He was literally torn apart by the vehicles who ran over him," Local 6 reporter Jessica Sanchez said. Witnesses said some of the drivers pulled over to the side of the road after hitting the body.

"At the time I hit it, my truck lifted off the ground," motorist Danny Bower said. "That's when I realized it was something more than a dog."

Many other vehicles continued driving on I-4 after hitting the man, witnesses told Local 6 News.

"We stood there after calling police and I think at least three or four more vehicles hit it," Bower said. "And kept driving?" Sanchez asked. "Yeah," Bower said.

After an initial investigation, it was determined that the man likely parked his GMC truck on the overpass and either jumped or fell onto the interstate.

There was blood found on the overpass but police are not certain where the man was bleeding from.

Wow, I don't even know what to say. I know all of America is in a hurry to get everywhere right away... but you could atleast take the time to swerve... or better yet stop for a dead man on the highway? Article here.

A Parrot spills the beans about cheating girlfriend

"Hiya, Gary!" the parrot trilled flirtatiously whenever Chris Taylor's girlfriend answered her cell phone.

But Taylor, the owner of the parrot, did not know anyone named Gary. And his girlfriend, Suzy Collins, who had moved into his apartment a year earlier, swore that she didn't, either. She stuck to her story even after the parrot, Ziggy, began making lovey-dovey, smooching noises when it heard the name Gary on television.

And so it went until the fateful day just before Christmas when, as Taylor and Collins snuggled together on the sofa, Ziggy blurted out, "I love you, Gary," his voice a dead ringer for Collins'.

"It sent a chill down my spine," Taylor, a 30-year-old computer programmer from Leeds, told British reporters on Monday. "I started laughing, but when I looked at Suzy I could tell something was up. Her face was like beet root, and she started to cry."

Gary, it turned out, was Collins' former colleague and current secret lover. And not only had Collins, a 25-year-old call-center worker, been cheating on Taylor, but she had been doing it in front of the bird.

"It makes my stomach churn to think about what he might have seen or heard them doing," Taylor said of Ziggy, as reported in the Daily Telegraph and other newspapers.

He had owned Ziggy, named after the David Bowie character, since Ziggy was a chick, eight years ago, and watched with pride as Ziggy began mimicking everything he heard -- the television, people's voices, the vacuum cleaner, the doorbell. But when it became clear that Ziggy could not be taught to stop saying "Gary," Taylor found a new home for the bird through a dealer.

"I felt like I'd been stabbed through the heart every time my phone rang or he heard the name on the telly," he said.

As for Collins, she and Taylor split up the evening of the "I love you, Gary" incident.

Tracked down by the newspapers at the home of friends, Collins (who has since split up with Gary, too) said that although she was not proud of what had happened, she and Taylor had been having problems and would have broken up anyway. Nor, she said, had she ever taken to the bird, resenting Taylor for preferring to stay home with Ziggy rather than go out with her.

"I'm surprised to hear he's got rid of that bloody bird," Collins was quoted as saying. "He spent more time talking to it than he did to me." She added, speaking of Ziggy: "I couldn't stand him, and it looks now like the feeling was mutual."

Interesting. Maybe I’ll get my girlfriend a parrot for Valentines day…hmmmm. Think about it. It’s like having hiring private eye detective to keep watch at your girlfriends crib 24/7. Now I wonder how much Parrot’s are? My roommate claims they are two-grand for just one parrot. Horse-ka-ka if you ask me. Article here.

Two dudes win beer pong championship

A pair of recent University of Michigan graduates won $5,000 for being the best at a national beer pong tournament.

Jason Coben and Nick Velissaris are the champions of the "World Series of Beer Pong," which took place earlier this month near Las Vegas. The two beat out more than 160 other competitors to split the $10,000 grand prize.

Beer pong is played this way: While standing, players attempt to toss a Ping Pong ball into cups that are partially filled with beer at the other end of the table. If the players succeed, their opponents are forced to drink the beer in the cup.

Critics say the game encourages binge drinking, but Coben and Velissaris say it's not about irresponsible drinking. They say it's a way to have a good time with friends.

It promotes binge drinking? No way. I don't believe it. The rules state that the opposing player has to drink the beer in the cup that the ping-pong lands in. In no way does it emphasize drinking the beer quickly. In fact, drinking the beer quickly is not part of the ‘design/rules/architecture’ of the game. The binge drinking is induced by your best friend, who is across the table yelling at you to ‘f*ckin down that beer Sally!’ Beer pong. It may be just a fad for now, but it is a great American college tradition. Article here.
