Someone new becomes a billionaire every two days.
The Missouri Highway Patrol is reassuring the public that Batman villain ‘The Joker’ is NOT on the loose, after a staff member sent an emergency alert to mobile devices. Residents received texts warning citizens of “Gotham City” to be on the lookout for a purple and green 1978 Dodge 3700 GT with license plate number “UKIDME” — a description that matches the vehicle used by Jack Nicholson as the Joker in the 1989 film “Batman”. Later, the law enforcement agency explained on Twitter that the Joker was NOT on the loose in Missouri, which also does not have a place called “Gotham City”. The agency said the message was meant to be “a routine test of Missouri’s Blue Alert system”, but “an option was incorrectly selected, allowing the message to be disseminated to the public.”
Two LAPD officers have lost their jobs after ignoring calls about a robbery so they could continue driving around hunting Pokemon. Last week, California’s court of appeals upheld a previous decision that officers Louis Lozano and Eric Mitchell were rightfully terminated. In April 2017, the 2 were driving in their patrol car and discussing the in the augmented reality mobile game Pokemon Go, when they were asked to respond to a robbery in progress with “multiple suspects” at a Macy’s store. They chose to ignore the call, with Mitchell reportedly saying “Aw, screw it”, and choosing to hunt for a nearby pokemon called a ‘Snorlax’ instead.

A NEWS HEADLINE... FROM SOMEWHERE IN THIS WORLD!
Dateline.... HONG KONG
Many Hong Kong residents are hiring private jets for their pets. Why? Due to some of the world’s strictest COVID measures, 40% of expats say they are considering moving from the financial hub for good, and many have already left, and are now trying to have their pets relocated. This has led to online groups where desperate pet parents pool their money to cover the cost of renting a charter plane. And it’s not just dogs and cats. One private aviation company reports owners have chartered planes for hamsters, rabbits, birds and turtles.
WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by WeirdGiftOfTheDay.com
For 20 minutes, an undercover British police officer tracked a suspicious person in an area hit with a rash of burglaries. Unfortunately, the officer was chasing himself. An operator watching the street over a security camera alerted the plain-clothes officer of a suspicious person in the area — not realizing it was, in fact, the cop. The camera operator began relaying the whereabouts of the “suspect” so the officer could nab him. Every time the man darted in to another side alleyway, the officer was turning immediately into the same alleyway, but every time the camera operator asked what he could see there was no trace. The confusion ended when a police sergeant entered the camera operator’s room and figured out what was happening.

Leaving her ex, Amazon Exec Chairman Jeff Bezos, far behind in the generosity department, MacKenzie Scott, has donated $133.5 million to educational non-profit Communities in School, an organization that helps students navigate issues inside and outside of the classroom. Communities in School works in 2,900 schools in America, reaching a total of about 1.6 million kids. Their goal is to support students at risk of dropping out and provide resources to help young people be successful. Partly because of Scott’s donation, CIS says it will now be able to expand its operations. Since her divorce from Bezos, Scott has donated more than $8.5 billion to organizations focused on a range of issues. According to Forbes, Scott has given away approximately 18% of her fortune. Bezos, by comparison, has reportedly given away a measly 1%.
