What do you think they talked about in the car?

I can’t even begin to imagine the mind-blowing conversation Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, and Paris Hilton would have during this car ride. World peace? Civil war in Iraq? New nail-polish color they like? Probably none of those. What do you think they talked about? Post your thoughts in the comments section below...

Woman finds 'green worms' in McDonald's burger

On March 20, Murielle Glockson got really sick. She said her fever spiked to nearly 104 degrees. She went to the emergency room and was admitted to the hospital for more than a week. She racked up more than $36,000 in medical bills while receiving treatment for a bacteria infection that threatened her kidneys and liver.

So what made her so ill? That afternoon, Glockson, 70, a retiree from Largo, ate a McDonald's hamburger infected with "little green worms," she said.

Her husband, Henry, photographed the burger and one of the caterpillar-like worms, then brought the burger back to the restaurant. A manager took the hamburger back and offered Glockson a free one. She refused.

Hours later, Glockson said, she was violently ill. She was vomiting and suffering from head and stomach pains. That's when her daughter took her to the hospital. "I thought I was a goner," Glockson said.

Earlier this month, Glockson and her husband filed a lawsuit against McDonald's, claiming the burger made her sick. Glockson's lawyer, Charles Ehrlich, acknowledged that he can't prove that Glockson ate a worm, or even part of one. She found only the one worm in the burger and it was alive, intact and wiggling.

Glockson, who said she ate nearly all the burger before her husband saw that worm dangling from her mouth, thinks other worms were in the burger and that she ate them.

But McDonald's says there is no proof the burger caused Glockson's sickness. And some experts say they have doubts about that as well. Article here.

McDonald's Fast Food Freestyle Rap

I need a double cheeseburger and hold the lettuce
Don't be frontin' son no seeds on a bun
We be up in this drive thru
Order for two
I gots a craving for a number nine like my shoe
We need some chicken up in here
In this dizzle
For rizzle my nizzle
Extra salt on the frizzle
Dr. Pepper my brother
Another for your mother
Double double super size
And don't forget the fries.

Dude takes time off work, claims he's pregnant?

A South African man was fined by a local court overnight for taking time off from work and trying to cover it with a fake gynaecologist's certificate attesting he was pregnant and needed a week off.

A magistrate's court fined 27-year-old Charles Sibindana $180 for the brazen forgery, the SAPA news agency reported.

Sibindana stole a medical certificate from a health centre used by his pregnant girlfriend, but was apparently unaware that only women consulted gynaecologists.

Magistrate Bruno Van Eeden jokingly warned Sibindana "not to walk around faking sick letters from gynaecologists". Article here.


Girlfriend smashes beer mug on boyfriends face

A woman who allegedly struck her boyfriend in the face with a beer mug then left the motel room covered in blood.

Investigators became concerned about the couple's welfare Wednesday afternoon after a maid at the Rand Ave. Motel found the walls and mattress splattered with blood and blood-soaked bedding tossed in the dumpster. Cynthia Markham had struck him the face with the mug, slicing him from his cheek to his chin.

"It was probably about a good three- to four-inch gash, but I couldn't really tell because they had Superglued the bandages to his face," Legros said. Markham had come into the convenience store early Wednesday morning to buy bandages and two tubes of Superglue. Legros said the couple then used the glue to close the wound to Martinoni's face.

Turkey flys through family's window on Thanksgiving

A wild turkey, busted through the dining-room picture window... for the second time.

"It's terrible. My house is a disaster!" Sandy Cobbs said Friday, amid window glass littered on a bloody carpet in her dining room. "Everybody thinks it's funny, but it's not. I just couldn't believe it was Thanksgiving and there was a live turkey in my house."

Sandy was in her kitchen preparing sweet potatoes and vegetables to bring to her sister's when she heard a thunderous crash. "At first I thought my buffet fell over. It was so loud and kept crashing," she said. "I went in there and said, 'Not again. Not again.' He was huge -- two or three feet tall." It looked like the big bird had landed on her now scratched-up glass dining-room table and flopped to the floor.

That turkey mishap cost the Cobbs' insurance company nearly $10,000 to make repairs and replace carpeting, windows and curtains, Sandy Cobbs said. "My insurance company doesn't think it's funny," she said. "I don't know if I can turn in another claim." Article here.
