You're crazy, man. You're crazy. I like you, but you're crazy. Vol. 2 (1/7/07)

By Art Shimko

-- Below is a collection of the oddest, funniest, wackiest shit you'll see reported by the AP, Reuters and other press outlets.

-- I'm not shitting you, this is someone's high school yearbook photo. This kid, partakes in mock medieval battles, sword fights and feasts on roasted swine and vulture on a spit with other kindred spirits who all belong to the Society for Creative Anachronism. And yes, chain mail is mandatory dress code~!

-- Oh that damn Myspace! We would've gotten away if it weren't for those meddling kids! Parents of a twelve-year old girl were arrested on child abuse charges on Friday. The girl, who lives in Florida, posted on her Myspace page that while visiting her father and stepmother in Kent County, Maryland during the holidays they gave her coke and pot several times. Real nice, nothing like being twelve and high on Christmas.

The girl's mother read what her daughter wrote on Myspace, which she confirmed was true, leading to a call to the Maryland State Police and the arrest of her father and stepmother. That is the most irresponsible thing I've read today. Those two are some real pieces of trash.

-- The U.S. Army is so desperate to recruiting even more soldiers that they're recruiting dead and wounded soldiers. The Army apologized to over 200 families of wounded and dead soldiers who mistakenly received letters urging them to return to active duty, just days after Christmas which I'm sure struck a nerve in just about everyone who got one of those letters.

-- Bank issues credit card to cat

-- U.S. woman settles case over flour-filled condoms

-- Bride's joke breaks off Austrian wedding

-- Self-cleaning underwear needs no washing for weeks
