Did you hear the one about the guy who groped Minnie Mouse at Disney World in Orlando, Fla.?
No, this is not a lead-in to a joke. It actually happened. The 60-year-old grandfather was sentenced to community service and fined $1,000.
Does this ick anyone else out? Is nothing sacred?
He says he was just having fun with his family and it was an accident. But the story said the woman inside the Minnie suit had to pull the guy off of her. To make matters worse, the poor woman was afraid that she would be fired for breaking character if she screamed for help.
This is not my first editorial on weird news, but it has been a banner week.
A woman in Oregon is wandering around naked because no one can find the ordinance that says she can’t. Chances are they’ll come up with one in a hurry. A co-worker believes the ordinance should simply read: “KEEP YOUR CLOTHES ON!”
In other naked news, a 6-foot-7-inch, 250-pound man was arrested elsewhere for ringing doorbells naked. That’s a lot of naked.
Look through the peephole before you answer your doorbells from now on. Even money says it ain’t the Girl Scouts selling cookies.
A man in Florida was angry when his doctor wouldn’t prescribe the medication he wanted so he bit the tip of the doctor’s finger off. Yes, bit it OFF! The doctor found it and it was re-attached at the emergency room, but yuck!
A Lincoln, Neb., woman was busted twice the same night for drunk driving. The first time, the cop just took her to a local detox to dry out. The second time, a mere two hours later, he took her to jail.
Sure these are funny, but they are all preventable, unnecessary, illegal acts (except for the naked woman in Oregon). What is the point of them? What’s wrong with people?
Oh well. I guess I’ll just keep reading the Daily Dumb on CNN’s Web site to see what other craziness pops up in the world. But I won’t be going to Florida anytime soon. Half of the incidents on the Daily Dumb are out of the Sunshine State.
Your tip for the day: Watch out for the guys on bicycles carrying three-foot alligators. And yes, that’s a true story out of Louisiana. No word on where he got the alligator or what he was doing with it.
