Greetings fellow Bizarros:

Shoppers and employees at a Walmart store in Texas, were shocked to see Batman detaining a shoplifter and giving him a citation.

Fort Worth Police officer Damon Cole said that he was outside the Walmart store for a kids fair and was dressed as Batman.

At some point, Cole received an alert that a man was attempting to steal 4 DVDs from the Walmart store. Cole, who was dressed as Batman, located the suspect and he identified himself as an off-duty police officer.

When Cole saw that one of the DVDs was a Batman movie, he told the suspect that he cannot steal his videos. Since the four DVDs were valued at less than $100, the suspect received a citation for shoplifting.

"I was at Wal-Mart as Batman for kids day. This male attempted to steal 4 DVD's. I stopped him as Batman. He asked me for a selfie as Batman," Officer Cole reported later.

Before leaving the scene, the suspect asked to take a selfie with Batman, and Cole agreed.

Bizarrely,
Lewis

*------------- 'Balls, Las Vegas' -------------*

Visitors to the Las Vegas strip took note of an unintentionally hilarious sign resulting from Bally's temporarily losing its letter Y. Weekend visitors outside Bally's snapped photos of the sign, which was missing the 10-foot-tall letter Y, causing the sign to read "Balls, Las Vegas." Bally's owner Caesars Entertainment said the 300-pound Y was removed Friday when officials became concerned that it was leaning and could fall over in the wind. The company said it expects the Y to be back in place by Wednesday.

*-------- You've Got To Hand It To Him --------*

A Florida man walked more than 3 miles on his hands in hopes of breaking a world record and raising funds for charity. Ashwin Kalyandurg, 22, walked 3.17 miles on his hands, surpassing a 2002 Guinness World Record by 100 meters, during an event to raise funds for four charitable organizations. "Everything is in pain," Kalyandurg said after completing the record-breaking feat. Kalyandurg, a senior medical student at Nova Southeastern University, performed the world record attempt at the Pledge-Per-Step Challenge in Boca Raton. He took breaks throughout the 3-mile journey, which took about eight hours, and has submitted his record attempt to Guinness for approval. For two months leading up to the event, Kalyandurg trained his body by climbing palm trees, doing push-ups and walking up and down parking garage ramps on his hands. Kalyandurg had walked on his hands for charity in the past, walking for about 12 hours to benefit the American Cancer Society at his university.

Dear Lewis, Re: mummified toe used in a Canadian hotel's signature cocktail, cured in salt for six months after it was recently donated by a man who had it surgically removed. I've been reading BN for years. But this story is SICK and DISGUSTING. -Lisa J
[So the TZ and the Las Vegas tranny story is fine, but this is over the line, is it?]


Lewis, I've had a rusty nail but never a rusty toenail. -Joe


Hey! If you're the kind of Nazi who refuses to add both carne asada AND chicken to nachos, you probably deserve a little stabbin'. That's just downright unAmerican.


If you want all the taste of a 'pickled toe' cocktail, but without the pickled toe, you could always just drink Malort.
