When a “very large bag of marijuana” tumbles out of your shirt after the handcuffs have been applied, do not be surprised when the cops ignore your disavowal of ownership of said weed. Police responding to calls about a disturbance at an Iowa apartment building discovered 19-year-old Kyle Clark and another man “face to face yelling at each other.” Upon spotting the Iowa City Police Department officers, Clark tried to walk away from cops, who noticed he “had a very large bulge under his shirt near the waist line like he was trying to hide something.” When a cop asked if the protuberance was “a bag of weed,” Clark reportedly “tried to walk down the stairs which was a dead end.” After Clark was handcuffed around 3:00 a.m., “a very large bag of marijuana fell from under his shirt. He claimed it wasn’t his,” reported Officer Tyler Lakose. The complaint does not indicate whether Clark explained why he had someone else’s stash--which weighed about four ounces--nestled against his belly. Clark was charged with felony and misdemeanor drug counts and booked into the Johnson County jail. (https://bit.ly/3khRoE7)

The Silverback gorilla can lift almost a literal ton. The Silverback gorilla can lift up to 10 times its body weight on average: a total of about 1,800 pounds, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. This makes them one of the strongest living animal species on Earth. Though they are feared, the Silverback gorillas will only use their strength when they feel threatened.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by WeirdGiftOfTheDay.com
Over in central Glasgow, a landlord is trying to let what’s being billed as an office set up, though it appears to just be their bathroom with a desk and kettle added in. This ‘office space’ can be anyone’s for £50 pounds a week. Summing up the listing, someone wrote on Twitter: “Someone in Partick is renting their sh***er out as an office.” The “property” has a toilet, a window above it, a mini fridge, kettle, books, a desk, lamps, a chair and instant coffee. Never have a make-shift kitchen and loo been in such close proximity. The listing, which also boasts of fiber broadband, made it online 43 days ago, seemingly with little interest unless to mock it. The landlord wrote on Gumtree: “Small and compact space ideal for solo working.” The listing also states, “Located on the 1st floor of a tenement building in Partick, the space has its own private entrance. Included is fiber broadband connection, 2 x desks, mini fridge, toilet and sink, underfloor heating, lamps, mains supply, and kettle.” One person commented on Twitter: “Zoom calls on the throne.” Another said: “Okay, where is the shower? What about wet paperwork?” (https://bit.ly/2Wj2CA7)
MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by BetterResultsAdvertising.com
California Chevrolet dealer whose technician was caught street racing
a Dodge Charger in a customer's C8 Corvette has made good by allowing
the owner to trade in his car on a replacement at the dealer's
expense – taxes and all. Earlier this summer, the customer brought
his 2021 Corvette in to Fremont Chevrolet to diagnose an engine tick,
which turned out to be nothing more than a loose spark plug. When the
customer got the car back, he discovered that the car's Performance
Data Recorder (PDR) valet mode had recorded one of the dealer's techs
taking the car for a spin after completing the work. The Drive, which
also reported the initial incident, caught up with the owner and
dealer this week, both of whom expressed satisfaction at the outcome.
The customer will be taking home a 2022 Corvette leaving only his
2021 model in trade. A shakedown drive to validate a fix is not
unusual, and we'd even expect techs to explore an engine's rev range
if the powertrain is at the center of the issue. But an impromptu,
148-mph street race is not what we – or the C8 owner, for that
matter – had in mind. (https://bit.ly/3Bd6wcR)
