Greetings fellow Bizarros:

If you rob a road side wiener stand at gun-point, what is the most 'poetic' form of justice you could think of?

A 19-year-old man who allegedly held up a South Side Chicago hot dog stand shot himself in the weenie while running away.

Terrion Pouncy was arrested at the Oak Lawn hospital not long after he was found slumped on the steps of a home across the street from a West Pullman restaurant that Chicago Police say he robbed at gunpoint about 6 a.m. on Halloween.

Pouncy was unable to run further because of the pain of a self-inflicted gunshot wound suffered when tried to adjust the .38-caliber pistol in his waistband as he ran off.

Pouncy had pulled out the gun and demanded cash from two employees, pressing the gun to the head of a 39-year-old worker. Still pointing the gun at the workers, Pouncy stooped over to collect the cash. Shifting the gun in his waistband as he ran out, he apparently pulled the trigger, firing a bullet that struck him in the penis.

Surveillance cameras captured video and audio of the robbery, and showed Pouncy struggling to make it across the street, stop on a bench, and make his way to the steps of a nearby house before collapsing.

A kung fu master in China broke a Guinness World Record when he used his bare hands to smash 302 walnuts in 55 seconds. A video recorded in Foshan City, Guangdong Province, shows kung fu expert Li Weijun using his bare hands to break 302 walnuts in 55 seconds. The martial artist's feat bested the previous record of 212 walnuts in one minute, which a man in India set weeks earlier. The accomplishment has been submitted to Guinness for official recognition.

I called shotgun one night leaving the bar. The officer put me in the backseat anyway.

LEWIS; OFGS the store locked this man overnight in the store's beer cooler and then have him arrested for several cans and bottles of beer and malt beverage unpaid. Although I'm against nuisance lawsuits this man would be 100% correct to get a lawyer and sue the store for locking him overnight in that cooler. I'd bet the store owner would gladly drop all charges and possibly give the man a nice out of court settlement to avoid that law suit. -R.S.

That guy was trapped in a beer cooler over-night and he only drank four beers? Amateur.
