SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

Mother’s Day... will you get your mom or wife a gift even if she says, “Don’t get me anything?” What about her birthday, or Valentine’s Day? A survey finds that even if a wife or girlfriend says, “Don’t get me anything,” 88 percent of men will ignore her wishes and get her something. Good idea, since women in the survey said even if the say they don’t want anything, 63 percent still expect a small gift.

There are places where it may be appropriate to strip down to your undies and start dancing. The middle of a street just west of U.S. 1 is not one of them. But that’s where Indian River County, Florida sheriff’s investigators went shortly after 6:00 p.m. on March 26th. Investigators arrived at a specific address after a report of an “intoxicated subject.” They were told of a woman who “appeared to be under the influence of an unknown drug, as she actively took her clothes off on the roadway.” The woman, later identified as a 25-year-old Vero Beach resident, arrived in a red pickup. “After the female stripped herself down to her underclothes, she began swinging a golf club and dancing in the middle of the roadway,” the affidavit states. She was jailed on a disorderly intoxication charge. (

FUN FACT FOR YOU:Share this with your friends... they'll think you're really smart!

Dogs like squeaky toys for a dark reason. Ever wonder why your little puppy obsesses over those squeaky toys? Because dogs are descendants of wolves whose instincts include hunting smaller animals. The sound a squeaky toy makes is very similar to the sound a small animal makes when being hunted. When Ol' Lassie hears that, she gets excited because of these killer survival skills.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

A Florida Woman is facing a felony domestic battery charge after allegedly clobbering a man with a can of SpaghettiOs, a blow that left the victim with a large laceration on his head. According to an arrest affidavit, the victim told police that after arriving “home from the hospital” Saturday afternoon he got into a verbal argument with 30-year-old Shadae Miranda. The victim and Miranda were sharing a room at a Travel Inn motel in Fort Pierce. The man told cops that he sought to deescalate the situation by gathering some of his belongings and stepping outside the room, where he ended up sitting in a lawn chair. Miranda, cops allege, began striking the victim while he was still inside the room. As the man lounged outside, Miranda allegedly struck him in the head with a “15.6 ounce metal can of Spaghettio’s that was in a plastic bag.” While speaking with the victim, an officer “observed a large laceration on the top of his head consistent with being struck with the can.” She was arrested for aggravated battery, a felony.

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

A Florida man working at a hospital as a physician assistant is accused of doing something unthinkable during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office says 46-year-old Rhoderick Manhattan stole emergency equipment from a hospital. Manhattan is accused of loading 54 boot covers, 26 protective over-all suits, 12 scrub jackets, 11 headcover hoods, a box of gloves, and a pair of scrubs into a silver Jaguar. Two hospital workers told investigators they saw him do it. The total cost of everything he was trying to take is about $500. The sheriff's office said the theft of medical equipment over $300 a second-degree felony-- but since the county is in a state of emergency, that makes it a first-degree felony. Manhattan was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on larceny of emergency equipment and grand theft of equipment during a state of emergency. (
