Greetings fellow Bizarros:

We've all fallen in love with purchases we have found on the Internet, but this is a little ridiculous.

A woman in the United Kingdom who fell in love with objects as a teenager announced that she plans to marry a chandelier she bought on eBay.

33-year-old Amanda Liberty of Leeds said that she had 24 chandeliers in her home (it is unknown how many cats). Liberty was in an open relationship with all her chandeliers until she found one she calls Lumiere on eBay.

Liberty said that she fell in love with Lumiere at first site. She bought the chandelier and had it shipped to her home.

Liberty loves to cuddle with Lumiere and takes it to bed. The young woman admitted that she still takes her other chandeliers to bed as they aren't jealous of one another. But Liberty plans to marry Lumiere in a public ceremony for her friends and family.

When Liberty was 14-year-old, she fell in love with a drum set. Her first love lasted just a few months. She then fell in love with the Statue of Liberty in New York and legally changed her last name.

She traveled to New York many times to gaze at her lover and filled her house with many Statue of Liberty miniatures. Eventually, Liberty moved on to chandeliers.

But this time it's serious. Liberty recently bought a diamond engagement ring and put it on Lumiere. The only thing that would make this story perfect is if Amanda changes her name once again, but this time to Amanda Chandra Lear.

*--------------- I Said 'No Ice!' ---------------*

A Southern California couple said they were shocked when a huge block of ice, suspected to have fallen from an airplane, crashed through the roof of their home. Claudell Curry, 82, said he and his wife, Odell Marie Curry, 83, were watching TV at about 9 p.m. Sunday at their San Bernardino home when there was a loud crashing noise that shook their home. "That terrible noise, I never heard a noise like that before," Claudell told local news. "It sounded like a bomb went off." Curry said he went into the master bedroom, where he found the bed and floor covered with insulation from the attic, which he could see through a hole punched in the ceiling. "And then we saw the big huge white objects on the floor," Curry said. "And I was like what is this? It was ice." He said the ice, which was the approximate size of a car engine, may have fallen from a passing plane. Gregor said the ice would have been blue if it had come from a plane's lavatory. The ice in both incidents was clear.


*-------------- That's A Good Day --------------*

A Missouri woman ended up making two trips to the state lottery office in a single day when her winnings from a $1,000 jackpot turned into $100,000. Veronica Buchanan said she went to the Missouri Lottery office in St. Louis to cash in a Monopoly Scratchers ticket that earned her a $1,000 prize. Buchanan said she stopped on her way home at the store where she had purchased the ticket -- the Bellefontaine BP in St. Louis -- and decided to try her luck a second time with a $1,000,000 Fortune Scratchers ticket. The second ticket sent her right back to the lottery office to claim a $100,000 prize.

Your headline was correct, I shouldn't have read that story about the necrophiliac. Eew! The ridiculous part is that his parents had no idea what was going on in their own basement?! I bet they know that their son is weird and creepy and chose to not know. Plausible deniability. sick! -Jerry

How bored does a person have to be to cement his head inside a microwave? And how was he planning to get it out without the help of the firefighters? -Chris
[Probably explosives.]
