Greetings fellow Bizarros:
A man managed to record a video of the moment a young woman got her head stuck in the tailpipe of a truck.
The video shows rescue workers trying to free the woman from the tailpipe of a red pickup truck.
Billy Little posted the video to Facebook with the caption: "How much alcohol does it take to get your head stuck in a diesel pickup exhaust tip?"
After the video went viral, the woman came forward and shared her side of the story. 19-year-old Kaitlyn Strom said that she was at the Winstock Music Festival in Minnesota, where she drank alcohol.
She explained that she was having fun with her friends when she spotted the big exhaust pipe and thought: "Hey, my head could probably fit into that."
[Yeah, that sounds like alcohol, alright.]
Her head did go in but it became stuck and she was unable to get out. Firefighters cut the tailpipe, and after 45 minutes, she was finally freed.
She immediately apologized to the owner of the truck, Tom Wold, who she did not know. The man told her he was glad she was okay. According to Storm, the truck owner did not ask her to pay for the damages "because he was absolutely wonderful."
However, the police were not so forgiving. The McLeod County Sheriff's Office cited the 19-year-old woman for underage drinking.
The now-famous sawed off tailpipe is now on display in a bar.

The saga of a raccoon that spent hours climbing the side of a 25-story Minnesota building culminated with the animal reaching the roof. The story of the raccoon, which was dubbed the MPR raccoon after first being spotted by Minnesota Public Radio workers, began when it was spotted spending more than a day apparently trapped in a niche over the first floor of the Town Square building in St. Paul. Workers attempted to rescue the raccoon by leaning a 20-foot length of lumber against the building, but the raccoon fled to the roof of the building and made its way to the neighboring UBS Tower. The raccoon captivated social media users as it began to climb the tower, one of the tallest buildings in St. Paul. The raccoon was spotted by employees of the Paige Donnelly Law Firm, located on the 23rd floor, taking a nap outside an office window as afternoon turned into evening. The raccoon was caught on video reaching the roof of the UBS Tower, where city animal control had placed live traps. MPR reporter Tim Nelson confirmed the traps succeeded in capturing the raccoon.
*----- World Record-Breaking Paper Airplane -----*
A Massachusetts museum is hoisting a 64-foot-long paper airplane into the air to break a Guinness World Record. The Revolving Museum in Fitchburg announced the paper plane, created under the supervision of "Project Soar" leader and local artist Jerry Beck, will be lifted by a crane at the Fitchburg Municipal Airport. A Guinness World Records adjudicator will be on hand to verify whether the 1,500-pound plane beats the previous record for a paper airplane, which was created by students and faculty at Germany's Braunschweig Institute of Technology in 2013. Beck said the project has been four years in the making and involved contributions from more than 4,500 people. "We're doing something that's never been done in the world before," Beck told the Boston Globe. "It's a beautiful montage of artwork from all ages, from a 2-year-old to a 92-year-old."

You wrote: "All three women gave the officer a similar description of the suspect." Yeah, let me guess: He was about 6 inches long, bulbous tip, ruddy in color, pruney orb filled sac hung down behind. -Jerry

[Are you speaking from experience?]
The lead story in Wednesday's edition reminds me of the joke of the sick boy returning to class from the nurses office with his genitals out because the nurse said if he stuck it out until lunch he could go home. -Rich
