Greetings fellow Bizarros:

There is an old saying in business that goes, the customer is always right, but the owner of a supermarket in Oregon must have been questioning the wisdom of that philosophy when a customer drove her car through the front of the store.

The woman was angry that she was not allowed to purchase a large quantity of gift cards at a Safeway. 43-year-old Noella Fay tried to purchase $2,200 in gift cards, but when she tried to pay by check, the check did not clear.

Noella was not happy.

Fay left the store, went into the parking lot and parked her vehicle outside the front doors. When an employee told her to move the vehicle, she started screaming about wanting to buy gift cards.

She then drove her Chevrolet Tahoe through the doors and into the supermarket, down one of the aisles of the store sending shoppers fleeing, and then left the store through the back doors.

Fay was charged with reckless endangering, hit-and-run, reckless driving and criminal mischief. No one was injured as a result of the incident.

*----------------- Australia -----------------*

South Australia police said they have "ruled out the possibility of a Sharknado" in the mystery of a shark found in a roadside puddle. Police said a member of the public contacted authorities Friday morning to report finding a small shark partially submerged in a roadside puddle in the town of One Tree Hill. Fauna Rescue South Australia responded to the scene and transferred the shark, believed to be a Port Jackson shark, to a water tank. The group said the shark was alive at the time of its rescue, but later died. "How the shark came to be in the puddle is still a mystery, however, police have ruled out the possibility of a Sharknado," police said. "It is believed the shark may have been caught earlier today and dumped, or was kept as a pet but was growing too large for its tank."

An 8-pound gold nugget valued at about $190,000 was discovered by a seasoned prospector in Australia. According to metal detector manufacturing company Minelab, the anonymous prospector found the nugget while using his metal detector in a worked-over area in the far southern edge of Central Victoria's Golden Triangle. "I thought it was rubbish at first, maybe an old horseshoe," the prospector said. "About 12 inches below the ground, I could just barely make out the top of something. As I began to scrape away the clay and dig deeper, I really couldn't believe my eyes - this wasn't an old piece of steel in front of me. I had just unearthed a colossal gold nugget - a once in a lifetime find! I was in total disbelief as I didn't think nuggets of this size were still around" The man had previously made a promise to split any large finds with his prospecting friends and plans to buy a van to travel across Australia with his share of the proceeds. The nugget dubbed "Friday's Joy" was sent to a bank vault where plans to have a replica have been made as the original is prepared for auction.

Hi Lewis, "Only in America" (as we say in the real world) can it be that a boy is lucky enough to have terrific sex with his teacher (I wish I could have had the same), and is then able to sue for SIX MILLION DOLLARS, whereas the poor teacher goes to jail. WTF! -Steve

Lewis, The Ohio man is yet another case of drugs causing someone to go ape! -Joe

So your onboard with teachers having sex with any boy as long as the boy is old enough to get an erection, they can never be too young huh? It'll certainly make them "manly men". AND heaven forbid if a teacher has sex with a preteen or early teen girl. string em up! I say kids aren't in school to fulfill fantasies of grandeur or male/female sexual needs! OBTW that last article of "Deadly fumes from cow manure" isn't bizarre, that happens when some idiot climbs into a manure pit. -Kevin
