In an incident that a Kentucky man blames on methamphetamine, the man’s cousin allegedly tried to steal seemingly random items, including a cheese grater, an empty bottle of Lysol, and soap. Neighbors informed Mason Tackett that his cousin Phillip Hagans had been seen carrying items out of his house, but the items weren't the typical targets of a would-be burglar. Tackett was quoted as saying “Who steals a cheese grater? He's got the works. Lysol – he stole the empty bottle of spray. What got me the most was my soap. He stole my soap. Who steals soap?” He also said, “Must have been a bad batch [of methamphetamine] around here 'cause Floyd County has gone crazy in the last four days.” Hagans is being held on a $25,000 bond. He is charged with receiving stolen property and being a convicted felon with a firearm. (

The Grandiloquent Word of the Day

LINK TO TODAY'S WORD - Grandiloquent Words

Imberb (ihm-BURB)
-Beardless; cleanly shaven.

From French imberbe, from Latin imberbis.

Used in a sentence:
“Women once preferred the imberb gent, but these days, practitioners of pogonotrophy are the superstars of swoon.” 


Oklahoma’s eccentric big cat breeder Joe Exotic has been charged with hiring hitmen to kill the operator of a Florida animal sanctuary. An Oklahoma indictment charges that one of the “hitmen” was an undercover FBI agent. 55-year-old Exotic was arrested last week in Gulf Breeze, Florida. The intended victim, Carole Baskin, said “I was surprised he didn't want to do it himself, but I wasn't surprised he would try and follow through.” Baskin runs Big Cat Rescue in Tampa. Exotic blames Baskin for judgments totaling more than $1 million against him. He has reportedly threatened violence against Baskin in online videos. Exotic is known best for founding a private zoo in Wynnewood, Oklahoma, that he ran until early this year and for clashing with animal rights groups who accused him of abuse. (
