Greetings fellow Bizarros:

Pennsylvania woman steers car with her feet while texting

A couple traveling on a stretch of Pennsylvania freeway captured video of a woman steering her car with her feet while using both hands to text.

Sarah and Shawn Delong captured video of the woman using her feet to steady the steering wheel while traveling on the Schuylkill Expressway in Center City.

"Someone is going to get killed, that's why I was so mad. You see people on their phones all the time, but that took the cake," Sarah Delong told local TV. "For a good 20 minutes we were in her vicinity whether it was beside her or behind her."

The Delongs said they tried to get the woman's attention.

"At one point we beeped at her and I yelled 'get off your phone!' And she looked and smirked at me and went right back to doing whatever it was on her phone," Sarah Delong said.

Shawn Delong said he was baffled by the spectacle.

"I've seen people reading and writing with their documents, but not driving with your feet!" Shawn said.

The video emerged just days after a woman driving on a stretch of Colorado interstate was recorded focusing on her phone behind the wheel while resting a leg on the dashboard.

Love Means Never Having to Call in a Bomb Threat

A jealous boyfriend was arrested after allegedly calling the police to report that his girlfriend was carrying a bomb and drugs on a plane, according to police in New York. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) said that they have arrested 33-year-old Danesh Gomanie of Queens, after being accused of trying to prevent his girlfriend from flying to Guyana, in order to stop her from meeting her former husband. According to the criminal complaint, Gomanie called 911 on Wednesday, and told the dispatcher that there was a woman on Caribbean Airlines flight 527 who was carrying a bomb and drugs. Gomanie admitted that made the call because he was upset with his girlfriend for flying to Guyana, and was afraid she would meet her former husband who lives there. The girlfriend laughed at the idea of hooking up with her former husband, saying that they have been separated for 10 years. The girlfriend forgave Gomanie for making the prank call to police. Gomanie was booked into jail, and his bail was set $20,000.


*---------- The Most Canadian Crime Ever ----------*

Thieves in Canada made off with more than 5,000 gallons of maple syrup from trucks stored at a local warehouse. The shipment was meant to be sent to Japan before delays forced it to be locked away temporarily. Vice president of Mexuscan Cargo shipping company Alfredo Monaco said thieves broke into the warehouse and stole a shipping container carrying 20 pallets with a total of about 5,283 gallons of the syrup. According to the CBC, the shipping company is offering a $10,000 reward for the load's return. Monaco said insurance will not cover the total of the missing goods and the company would lose about $60,000, making the decision to offer a reward an easy one. "$10,000 is not much compared to the value of the goods," Monaco said.

Great! Another story about a stone cold moron claiming to be a victim of his own stupidity. Some goober brings a gun to a club to show he's a "bad-ass" ends up being a "dumb-ass" when he shoots himself in the leg. He should use his good leg to kick himself in the ass for being a clod. If I knew your parents I'd slap 'em each with a phonebook. --Bert

I find it amazing that people are willing to kill for such frivolous reasons. So now some poor, dumb woman's life is forfeit over 30 bucks worth of folding chairs. How stupid and pathetic. And bizarre, I guess.
