Greetings fellow Bizarros:
You just don't see this kind of thing happening very often in many other states, but in Florida it seems to be fairly common. With spring temperatures in the upper seventies to the lower eighties, and a certain relaxed attitude toward decorum, I am not surprised to read about three teenage girls showering naked together at a roadside rest area. But I was a little surprised at the high speed car chase that followed. You would think a ticket, or even a stern warning would be enough, but it did not end that well for these three, free-spirited young ladies.
Police say a witness reported that three naked women were at an Interstate 75 rest stop Wednesday morning, and that "all three of them" were "standing in the nude putting on suntan lotion."
When a Florida Highway Patrol trooper arrived at the rest stop, the naked women explained that they had simply been "air drying" in the nude after showering. One woman said that the trio had spent the night at the rest area after leaving a local residence "due to an altercation."
With no bathing facilities available, they opted for a shower on a lawn. A trooper noted that a case of water and a bottle of soap was on the ground next to the suspects.
Before the officer could complete her investigation, however, the trio jumped into their Nissan Sentra and drove off on the highway.
The car was subsequently tracked to the parking lot of a convenience store that the trio--now apparently clothed--had entered. When a trooper sought to arrest one of the women leaving the store, the driver of the Nissan allegedly tried to strike him with the vehicle.
At that point, another woman exited the car with a pink baseball bat and approached the trooper, prompting another officer to ram the Nissan. The car drove away, prompting another police chase.
The Nissan was finally brought to a stop using road spike strips. But the women still refused to exit the vehicle. Police had to break a window and taser the girls before they were taken into custody.
Investigators identified the car's driver as Oasis Shakira McLeod, 18, and the passengers as Jeniyah McLeod and Cecilia Eunique Young, both 19. The women were charged with fleeing to elude, resisting arrest, aggravated assault, indecent exposure, and marijuana possession. The younger McLeod was also hit with a DUI count.

The Mississippi Mashed Potato Mystery
Residents of a Mississippi neighborhood are trying to get to the bottom of an unusual mystery -- someone has been leaving mashed potatoes in various locations. Neighbors in the Belhaven area of Jackson said they been finding plates of mashed potatoes in locations including porches, mailboxes and on top of vehicles. "This neighborhood does a lot of quirky things, we decorate road signs we put Christmas trees in our potholes, so it's not surprising at all, that's why I love this neighborhood, because they do so many strange things, but it's definitely one of the weirdest things I've seen since living in Jackson," resident Jordan Lewis, who found mashed potatoes on her car, told local news. Residents said they have yet to uncover the motive behind the apparent prank. "Some people were thinking maybe the mashed potatoes were poisoned to kill animals. I didn't taste it, I have a 3-second rule, so I didn't touch it but some people were worried," said Sebastian Bjernegard, who found a plate of potatoes on his doorstep. Neighbors said they have not involved the police since the prank appears to be harmless.
Doctors Find Bees Living In Woman's Eyelid
A Taiwan woman suffering from a swollen eye went to a hospital where doctors found four minuscule bees living under her eyelid. Hung Chi-ting, the head of the ophthalmology department at Taiwan's Fooyin University Hospital, said he noticed what looked like insect legs under the woman's left eyelid and used a microscope to discover she had sweat bees, also known as halictidae, living next to her eye. The woman, identified by the surname He, said she thinks the insects blew into her eye while visiting a relative's grave. Sweat bees are known to nest near graves and fallen trees. Hung said the woman was found to be suffering from bacterial skin infection cellulitis and severe corneal erosion. Doctors said the insects were still alive and apparently survived by feeding on the woman's tears.
That story reminds me of the golden goose fairy tale. Why would you kill the goose that lays the golden eggs? Or buys you a free breakfast?
[Because people are petty, jealous and vindictive. Not that I'm a misanthrope, or anything.]
