Greetings fellow Bizarros:

NEW BestSellersThere is a song that goes, 'All my ex's live in Texas, And that's why I hang my hat in Tennessee.' That might lead a person to believe that divorcees in Texas are bitter and vindictive. And today's story does nothing to dispel this belief. While there is no background provided as to why this Texas woman got a divorce, so we cannot speculate as to what led to her dramatic actions, I think you will agree that her response was over-the-top to say the least.

When 43-year-old Kimberly Santleben-Stiteler got a divorce after 14 years of marriage she decided to have a divorce party at her father's farm, about 25 miles west of San Antonio. This is not a completely unusual thing to do. People who were in particularly stressful marriages sometimes like to celebrate their newfound freedom.

At this party Kimberly wanted to destroy some things that reminded her of her old life; primarily her wedding dress. But Kimberly was not content with simply throwing it on a bonfire. With the help of a demolitions expert she rigged her dress with 20 pounds of Tannerite, which is the explosive component of those explosive targets used for longer range firearms training.

She honed her shooting skills with some practice before the party - because with that much Tannerite, the family wasn't sure that shooting the dress from 100 yards away would be safe enough. But Kimberly hit the bullseye on her first shot.

The resulting fireball was the size of a garage.

"We were all getting messages asking if that was our explosion people were feeling and hearing around the county, up to at least 15 miles away," Kimberly's sister Carla said. "It was like, 'Uh, is everything okay over there'?"

The explosion she says was felt through parts of Medina County. She had about 40 guests, who all cheered when the dress was no more.

"On the one hand, it was like being on set of some action movie. The explosion was huge," Kimberly said. "It was liberating pulling that trigger. It was closure for all of us."

I don't know what her husband, sorry, EX-husband did to piss her off, but I hope for his sake he doesn't try to reconcile.

Bizarrely,
Lewis

Chinese Man Breaks 100 Bricks in 37 seconds

Speaking of people you don't want to piss off; a Chinese kung fu master showed off his skills by using his bare hands to break 100 bricks in only 37 seconds. Wang Hua, a kung fu master who said he has been studying various martial arts disciplines since he was a child, was filmed using his bare hands to chop the 100 bricks in half. The video shows the Wang chopping through bricks, mostly two at a time. Wang said his stunt bested his own previous record of smashing 50 bricks in 40 seconds.

A gathering of women dressed as Rosie the Riveter set a Guinness World Record in Michigan when a total 3,734 women were counted. The event, organized by the Yankee Air Museum in Ypsilanti, drew a total 3,734 women who donned the clothes of the World War II-era female factory worker icon, and they were photographed striking the "We can do it!" poster pose in unison. Guinness World Records confirmed the count and said it was a new world record. The gathering included several "original Rosies," including Stella Haener, 101, and Lottie Kucab, who celebrated her 100th birthday on the day of the record attempt. The world record attempt was organized to raise funds and awareness for a campaign to save the Willow Run bomber plant, where "real Rosie" Rose Will Monrow made bomber plane wings during World War II.

Lewis, gators can survive freezing, just google "Frozen Alligators North Carolina" and check out the images of snouts sticking out of the ice. I don't think they are surviving in New York sewers because of New Yorker sh*t.


Yes, giant lizards and snakes roaming around Florida is bizarre, but how many of Florida's residents have you ever met? There is the real source of the bizarre.


Planting trees in the middle of the streets sounds like a whole bunch a lawsuits waiting to happen. That city is going to go broke after the first guy who smashes his head against the windshield sues.
