Recently A booze-craving brute flew into a rage and brawled with another
passenger aboard an American Airlines flight when a flight attendant refused to serve him alcohol. A local news source reported that a man named Jason Felix had apparently downed a couple of brewskies when he started screaming at flight attendants on a flight from St. Croix to Miami. One flight attendant told Felix that he would not bring him any more beers. Felix then allegedly spit blood at one passenger and told him he’d kill him. The two men then exchanged punches. The unhinged flyer then locked himself in the plane’s bathroom and used a homophobic slur at a worker trying to eject him. Felix was busted when the flight landed in Miami, and faces federal charges of interfering with a flight crew. (

The Grandiloquent Word of the Day

LINK TO TODAY'S WORD - Grandiloquent Words

Fudgel (FUH-jul)
-Pretending to work when you’re not actually doing anything at all.

Origin: I am personally unable to track down the etymology of this word, so we shall have to take the word of author Mark Forsyth, (The Horologicon, The Etymologicon & The Elements of Eloquence) who says it’s from the 18th century; I cannot find anything beyond that.

Used in a sentence:
“I need you to stop fudgeling and get those TPS reports on my desk by two o’clock!”

A Gainesville, Florida man who neighbors say is responsible for an outbreak of loose rabbits in their neighborhood has been fined by the city for a second time. The Gainesville Sun reports that 57-year-old Von “Aspen” Ruder owns about twenty-five rabbits, surpassing the city's two-bunny limit. Ruder was fined by Gainesville's code enforcement department for $521.50. In February, Ruder unsuccessfully petitioned the city to establish a medical exception that would allow him to keep the rabbits. He said the rabbits help with his Tourette's syndrome and PTSD from losing his leg more than thirty years ago in a rock-climbing accident. Ruder denies being the cause of the rabbit outbreak in the quiet community, though he admits that some breed and get loose. (

MOMENT OF DUH:By (Find Funding For College)
According to a charging document filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court, Anchorage, Alaska police rapidly solved a bank robbery after the suspect handed the teller a hold-up note with his name and birthdate on the back. Michael Gale Nash reportedly entered the bank and handed the teller a hold-up note that said, “This is a hold up. Please put the money they want in the bag. God help us!!!” The hold-up note was written on the back of a form from an organization that provides affordable housing. Nash's personal information was on the form.
Police arrived on scene “a few minutes” after getting a call from the bank. Nash was actually standing outside of the bank counting his money when the police arrived. An FBI spokesperson said, “This is probably the quickest apprehension in recent history, at least locally for Anchorage.”

Is this story "Fake News" or something that actually happened in Florida.

According to police, a Florida man sought to bring down a hovering 
drone by firing seven shots from his 9mm handgun. 39-year-old Wilmer 
Yanes spotted the drone flying above his Bradenton residence upon returning 
to the property. Yanes said the drone dropped to within a few feet of the ground 
before shooting back up into the sky. Yanes added that he waved his hands at 
the camera-equipped drone, indicating that he wanted its operator to fly the 
drone away from his home. With the drone continuing to stalk his property, 
Yanes attempted to shoot it from the sky. Aiming at the drone with a 9mm 
firearm, the homeowner squeezed off seven shots. But none of the rounds 
hit the drone. Cops determined that the drone was being flown by a neighbor, 
who was properly licensed by the Federal Aviation Administration. A patrolman 
“educated” Yanes on the “proper use of a handgun” and told the homeowner 
that “the shooting of a drone was not legal.” (
