BEST OF 2021) After thorough investigation, Turkish police found no actual criminal activity involved here, but the bozo level is high enough to merit mention. From Cayakka, Turkey, comes the story of a man who was reported missing by his friends. Our bozo, who was in town for a construction project, went out for a night of drinking with his co-workers. The next morning his friends thought he had drunkenly wandered off into the woods and a search party was quickly organized. Meanwhile, our bozo, who had gone to a friends villa to sleep it off, awoke and noticed all the activity outside. The searchers told him they were looking for a missing man, and our bozo, being a good citizen, joined in the search. It was not until he heard other searchers calling his name that he realized “Oh, that’s me.” Police interviewed him and released him with no charges being filed.

LOOK WHAT I FOUND ON CRAIGSLIST “I’m selling a new, 5-pounds canister of coca-butter lotion. Over the last year I used another 5-pound canister just like it and really enjoyed the comfort it provided. There is nothing wrong with the canister I’m selling, I just feel it’s time to try a new brand. If there’s an emptiness in your life, or just need the occasional pick-me-up, this cocoa-butter lotion will do the trick. I will also include a free electric heating pad, which is used but in very good condition.”

He’s making a splash! An ex-model is crediting his youthful appearance to drinking his own urine, flushing it into his rectum, and rubbing it onto his skin. Troy Casey traveled the world posing for high-fashion labels, including Versace, back in the 1980s and 1990s before becoming a life coach. The 55-year-old says he’s been able to maintain his model looks and physique thanks to a daily dose of his own pee. “I drink my own urine every morning — I call it hair of the dog!” Casey proclaimed in an interview with News Dog Media. “The feeling is electric.” The former fashion darling first heard about urine therapy — known as Shivambu in Ayurvedic medicine — back in 2004. Soon after, he decided to sample his own pee and was pleasantly surprised. The resourceful health guru now uses his urine in other ways as well. Casey claimed he bottles his pee, lets it “ferment” and uses it in an enema. The former model also uses his urine as a moisturizer, which he believes helps maintain his appearance. Casey — who previously hit headlines for claiming there were health benefits to sunning his anus — has more than 120,000 Instagram followers who look to him for unorthodox wellness advice. (
