Hmmm. Well that's -- different.

Dude dies after downing 23 shots of vodka at strip club

Sheriff's deputies believe a Seffner man may have drunk himself to death, by downing 23 shots of vodka in 30 minutes. Deputies discovered the body of Eric Morris at a bar on US 92 in Tampa Tuesday night. Morris was 26 years old.

According to a sheriff's spokesman, Morris went to "The Angels" bar, which is a topless bar, and began ordering shots of Burnett's Cherry Vodka. He was playing a drinking game with a friend. The police report says his friend told Morris he was too old to keep playing the game, but Morris continued.

He drank 23 shots in 30 minutes before passing out. His friend dragged him to the club's champagne room where Morris died. The medical examiner's office says the cause of death is pending and it may take four to six weeks before they have blood tests back to show Morris' blood alcohol level.

This is one damn smart goat.

Dude clubs woman on the head with 10-pound frozen chicken.

An Ypsilanti man is accused of stabbing his mother in the back with a dinner fork and clubbing another woman over the head with 10 pounds of frozen chicken.

Frederick McKaney, 40, also faces a charge of resisting Jackson police officers. "He stabbed his mother in the back of the neck when she refused to give him money, and then he attacked a neighbor woman with a chicken," Chief Assistant Prosecutor Mark Blumer said. "He said something nasty to them and they responded in kind," Blumer said.

"He jumped off his bike and hit one woman over the head with 10 pounds of chicken." The woman was treated at Foote Hospital, and had five staples in her head, Blumer said. The husband of the victim in the poultry assault trailed McKaney in a pickup truck and flagged a responding officer on Biddle Street, Deputy Chief John Holda said. The fork attack drew some blood but did not cause serious injury, Blumer said.

Someone has too much time on their hands this summer.

Sweet t-shirts.

Titanic life jacket sells for $68,500.

An unused life jacket from the doomed Titanic ship sold for $68,500 in New York on Wednesday, Christie's auction house said.

The cork-filled life preserver -- still largely intact, but stained and torn in parts -- was thought to have been found by farmer John James Dunbar on the Halifax shoreline after the passenger ship sank off Newfoundland in April, 1912.

Christie's, which estimated that the life preserver would sell for $60,000 to $80,000, sold another Titanic life jacket last year in London for $119,000.

A dog photo so cute, you'll puke.


Interesting Man of Honor Speech (jump to 1:00 min)

Drunk dude on plane throws ice on passengers, grabs attendant's butt.

A Charlotte-bound flight made a quick landing Tuesday after authorities said a man wouldn't cooperate with the flight crew, throwing ice at passengers, refusing to fasten his seat belt and grabbing a flight attendant. Jacob Kline was charged with being intoxicated and disruptive in public and resisting a public officer after the incident on American Airlines Flight 1360 from Dallas.

Soon after the flight left the Texas airport, Kline ordered a rum and Coke, the affidavit says. The 44-year-old switched seats constantly – his wife and daughter were on the plane, too, and he'd sometimes sit near them, but other times he'd sit in an entirely different section of the plane, according to the affidavit. Later he ordered two more rum and Cokes, but, according to the affidavit, when he began whistling loudly and cursing, the flight attendants refused to serve him a fourth drink.

So Kline got a cup of ice and began throwing it at other passengers, according to court documents. Flight attendants said that, when they tried to stop Kline, he grabbed a female attendant's buttocks.
