Authorities said a man playing the Easter Bunny at a Florida mall is accused of removing the head of the costume and hitting a customer.
Police reports said 22-year-old Arthur McClure punched Erin Johansson when she got upset that the photo exhibit was closing 10 minutes early Saturday night. The alleged incident was witnessed by dozens of people, including 15 children, at Edison Mall.
McClure said he never punched Johansson and that he was only trying to stop a fight between his wife, exhibit manager Crystal Frechette, and Johansson.
Frechette acknowledged punching Johansson and said the woman poked her as she closed the set. Mall management issued an apology. McClure and Frechette have been fired.
Both are charged with battery and disturbing the peace. They were released from Lee County jail Sunday and plan to get an attorney for their May 2 court hearing. Article here.
A man from the Ufa region in western Russia has survived after discovering a 10-cm nail in his head. “Head traumas are often accompanied by amnesia — the victim does not remember how he was injured. Or he may not wish to speak of it for personal reasons,” said neurosurgeon Ildus Saitov, who removed the nail from the man’s head. The doctor said his patient had been very lucky — the dowel had not broken any major blood vessels or the most important parts of the brain, while strong alcoholic intoxication Saitov believes saved him from going into shock from the pain. The patient left hospital only a couple of days after the operation and is now feeling absolutely normal, he said. WTF? Seriously? How drunk was he? Article here.

Fairfield, California police arrested a Petaluma man on felony drunken-driving charges after he allegedly gave his three children a ride in a golf cart and flipped the cart, authorities said Monday.

Tom Cruise, 43, and his fiancee Katie Holmes, 27, joyously welcomed the arrival of a baby girl, Suri, yesterday. The name Suri has its origins in Hebrew meaning "princess," or in Persian meaning "red rose."
Kyle MacDonald had a red paper clip and a dream: Could he use the community power of the Internet to barter that paper clip for something better, and trade that thing for something else and so on and so on until he had a house?
While he was visiting his hometown of Vancouver, British Columbia, two women gave him a fish-shaped pen for the paper clip.
Later that day, MacDonald headed to Seattle to catch a ballgame and a flight home. Before the airport, though, he stopped to see Annie Robbins, an artist who had just stumbled upon the Craigslist barter section. She admired its anticonsumerist vibe, she said, so she answered MacDonald's posting "on a lark."
MacDonald left her home the proud owner of a small ceramic doorknob with a smiley face, made by the son of an artist Robbins knows.
Next up was Shawn Sparks, who was packing up to move from Amherst, Mass., to Alexandria, Va. Sparks, 35, is a huge fan of Craigslist barters, having acquired his 1993 Chevy Blazer in a trade for a used laptop.
Sparks offered MacDonald a Coleman camping stove. Sparks had two, and didn't want to lug both on his move. And he needed a new knob for his espresso machine.
Done. The men celebrated with a barbecue at Sparks' house.
MacDonald gave the camping stove to a Marine sergeant at Camp Pendleton, Calif., getting a generator in return.
East again. MacDonald swapped the generator for an "instant party package" an empty beer keg, a neon Budweiser sign and a promise to fill the keg proferred by a young man in Queens, New York City.
Before the trade, MacDonald left the generator in storage in his hotel. When he went to claim it, he was told it had been confiscated by the fire department because it was leaking gas.
"If there was ever a movie based on all that, that would be the closest to losing it all," he said, recalling his anguish. But more on movies later.
MacDonald reclaimed the generator by tracking it to a firehouse in lower Manhattan, where he got a Tootsie Pop from the crew and petted their Dalmatian.
The beer package went to a Montreal disc jockey, in exchange for a snowmobile. Here's where the project's grassroots purity may have gotten compromised. MacDonald's blog, http://oneredpaperclip.blogspot.com, was attracting attention, and MacDonald was invited onto Canadian television. Our wandering man was asked if there was anywhere he wouldn't go to trade the snowmobile.
MacDonald gave the van stripped of Cintas logos to a musician seeking to haul gear. In turn, the musician, who works at a Toronto recording studio, arranged a recording contract, with studio time and a promise to pitch the finished product to music executives.
MacDonald handed the contract to Jody Gnant, a singer in Phoenix who owns a duplex.
And that is how Kyle MacDonald has turned a paper clip into a year of shelter in the desert. Where it goes now, who knows. He says he has offers from Hollywood studios to turn his story into a film. But he pledges not to accept gifts or overly lopsided trades that would undermine the peer-to-peer joy that he says has animated his journey. Asked what he has learned from all this, he responded:
"If you say you're going to do something and you start to do it, and people enjoy it or respect it or are entertained by it, people will step up and help you."
The men who have sex with dolls, they think she's 'perfect' and agrees to whatever her man desires. The only thing is, she's plastic. We expose the disturbing phenomenon of men who reject real women in favour of silicone…
