Y SO SRS?

Drunk driver crashes truck into parked car. Passenger takes over, crashes truck into another parked car. On the same street.

Police say two drunken friends crashed their pickup truck into a parked car in New York City's northern suburbs and then drove down the street and crashed it again. Peekskill Detective Sgt. Eric Johansen said he's "never seen anything like it."

The crashes happened over the weekend. Police said one of the men couldn't pull the truck free of the parked car he had hit so his friend hopped behind the steering wheel. They say the friend freed the truck but then drove it into another car parked down the block. The men have been charged with driving while intoxicated and leaving the scene of a property damage accident.

Just the right angle.

This photo can't be explained. WTF!

Passenger decapitated on Greyhound bus.

A 40-year-old man is in custody in Manitoba after a young man was stabbed — and, witnesses said, decapitated — aboard a Greyhound bus travelling through the province overnight.

Thirty-seven people were aboard the bus en route to Winnipeg from Edmonton. Colwell said the "brave" behaviour of the passengers and driver probably prevented anyone else from being hurt.

Garnet Caton, who was sitting in the seat in front of the victim, said he saw the attacker stab his seatmate, a young man sleeping with his headphones on. Caton said he heard a "blood-curdling scream" and turned around to see the attacker holding a large "Rambo" hunting knife above the victim, "continually stabbing him in the chest area."

"He must have stabbed him 50 times or 60 times," said Caton. "Like, just everywhere, arms, legs, neck, chest, guts, wherever he could swing it, he got it," said Olmstead.

Don't worry -- it's a hybrid.

Don't watch this. Seriously -- it's really gross.

Wife cheats on husband. Husband gets revenge by selling her wedding dress to pay for divorce.

A Pennsylvania man whose wife left him for a younger man is selling her wedding dress on eBay to help pay for his divorce lawyer.

The dress is pretty much all he has left to show of his 11-year marriage and the headline on eBay sums it up: "Selling dress to pay for divorce! Wife cheated." The bidding starts at only $50 and the man, he only wishes to be known as "Jimmy,"says it's a good price considering the dress has never been worn. Well, except by Jimmy, who is pictured in it on eBay.

"I figured, what the heck, a little humor can't hurt." Jimmy, a hard working member of the U.S. military, said he bought the dress for his former wife so they could renew their vows since they never had a traditional ceremony. Jimmy says after he paid for his wife to undergo gastric bypass surgery their marriage started to crumble: "Bottom line, wife got skinny, wife cheated."

Then he says she walked out with everything the couple owned, including their children and left him with credit card debt and the dress. So what's a man to do?

Sell the dress to make some money to get out of debt and get a divorce.

Come on, throw me higher!

Casino asks smelly 440-pound gambler to leave after 17 hours

A 440-pound Brooklyn man said he was playing poker in an Atlantic City casino for 17 hours Tuesday and didn't have time to clean up. He understands why grossed-out gamblers complained about his body odor, but said he didn't deserve stinky treatment from the casino that asked him to leave.

Dave Coskey, a spokesman for the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, said it is company policy not to comment on matters involving their customers.

Wax said he told casino officials: "There's no question I stink. I'm not denying it. I do have an odor. I've been playing for 17 hours." The 54-year-old limousine company owner, who says he is a frequent gambler at the Borgata, said a poker room manager followed him into the restroom and informed him that patrons at his table were complaining about his body odor.

When he tried to re-take his seat at the table, he said a manager told him he couldn't play anymore and to leave. He said he asked for a free room to freshen up, and the casino refused.

He promptly filed a complaint about his treatment with the Casino Control Commission. His complaint will be reviewed to determine whether any state gambling laws or regulations were violated, a commission spokesman said Wednesday.

I would disagree.

I wish I was a man? WTF.

Dude puts aviation fuel into car.

A 20-year-old man is accused of breaking into a small airport and trying to fill up his car's gas tank with aviation gasoline.

"We've had people try and steal gas here in the past," said Jim Meide, who works at Reid-Hillview Airport. "It's really stupid. Put aviation gas in your car and it's so heavily leaded that eventually your valves warp and you'll end up with some very expensive repairs."

The suspect was arrested Sunday night on suspicion of driving while intoxicated and attempted theft. But he probably wasn't trying to save money. The aviation fuel in the pumps used for aircraft and race cars was going for $5.97 a gallon, accessed only by a credit card, authorities said.

"Sometimes," Meide said, "these people have the notion that since it's racing fuel it'll make their car go faster."
