A Florida Man tried to trade a bag of marijuana for food at a McDonald’s, but was rebuffed by a drive-thru worker who called 9-1-1 to report the unorthodox barter attempt. Cops allege that 23-year-old Anthony Gallagher ordered food at a McDonald’s in Port St. Lucie around 1:30 a.m. When Gallagher pulled his Pontiac up to the drive-thru window, he allegedly “produced a clear plastic bag that contained a green leafy substance” and offered to provide “marijuana in exchange for the food that he ordered.” McDonald’s manager Ghassan Awad declined Gallagher’s request and called 9-1-1. By the time police arrived, Gallagher had left a McDonald’s parking lot. However, around 2:05 a.m., Gallagher returned to the drive-thru line, where he was pointed out to police by Awad. Gallagher’s vehicle was hard to miss since it had a surfboard “protruding through the rear window.” Police reported that Gallagher’s ride reeked of marijuana and that “loose cannabis” was found on the vehicle’s center console. In addition to a possession rap, Gallagher was charged with driving under the influence. (

Our silly constitutional amendments that never happened
A U.S. constitutional amendment was proposed in 1893 suggesting that the country be renamed “The United States of Earth.” There was another failed amendment, a few years prior, that wanted to abolish the presidency and install a “Roman-style triumvirate.” As if the United States needed any more comparisons to the doomed Roman Empire!

Forswunke (for-SWUNK)
-Exhausted after physical exertion.

Middle English past participle of forswinke, “exhausted from physical exertion,” most commonly in the performance of household chores. Terms with similar meanings included dwang and snool, “to oppress or exhaust one’s vital energies by overwork,” while tireling denoted a person who was easily fatiqued by physical exertion. The sixteenth-century toilful was used of a hardworking individual or one who was characterized by toiling, and the related verb thripple meant “to toil ceaselessly.” Titteravating was an early dialectic variant in eastern England for “tiresome.

Used in a sentence:
"I'm positively forswunke after tea with the bridge club splatherdabs."

Officials say they falsely claimed in a viral GoFundMe post in 2017 that Bobbitt, who is homeless gave his last $20 to McClure so she could get gas when stranded in Philadelphia.

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

Federal court records show a Florida man duped a Texas school district into transferring him nearly $2 million and then used the money to purchase a BMW and Rolex watches. Records show 61-year-old Donald Howard Conkright was arrested last week and charged with wire fraud. He's currently in the custody of U.S. marshals pending his transfer to Texas. A manager for the Crowley school district near Fort Worth, Texas, received an email in October saying a construction company that works as a vendor for the district needed to provide updated banking information. The district owed money to the company and later sent more than $500,000 to a new account. The next day it sent a $1.4 million payment. The district says it contacted authorities after discovering the fraud and began an internal review. (
