Fake Zebras
A zoo in China is charging a small fee for posing beside horses painted with zebra stripes. The zoo assures the customers that it is 'just for fun'.

Dressed Up Dead Fawn Left By Theatre
"The police log entry said it all: "Deceased fawn was dressed up like an infant and abandoned at the Pantages Theater."
The police have no idea who left the fawn or why, but they believe that the fawn had been stillborn and had died some time previously.

Woman Pretends to be Pregnant - Wastes Police Time
A Rhode Island woman has been given probation for a year after claiming her boyfriend had taken their child. Several months previously, Roxann Lacey falsely told her boyfriend that she was pregnant.
At the beginning of this month, she contacted the police, telling them that she had given birth at home, but her boyfriend had taken the child after an argument.
Medical examination found that she had not given birth, and she pleaded no contest to filing a false police report.

Now I just got all kinds of weird looks for laughing out loud at the story with the fawn.

"The outfit included an infant sleeper and a bib that read, "You think I'm cute? You should see my aunt," Sayre added."


Thank you for making my day, Boo.

I don't get why women think telling their boyfriends they are pregnant is going to convince someone to stay. If they don't like you...why continue to put up with them??

And then there's the chick I know who went off her birth control on purpose...so her boyfriend wouldn't go to college in another state. Yeah...that worked out well. Now you have an UNEDUCATED SPOUSE, ya retard.

The "I'm pregnant so you can't leave me now" idea relies on the principle of the honour of the man involved. If the man has no problem with legging it, then the plan leads to a triple whammy of problem-

1) You are pregnant
2) The guy has been driven away by the baby
3) You now have no husband to help care for the baby, you imbecile.


A security guard in my work had this happen. He just went AWOL one day and disappeared off the map. We later found out he just found out he had a kid somewhere and some girl told him she was pregnant, so he upped sticks and ran as fast as he could.

Aw. No pictures of the fake zebras. I guess the press didn't want to pay the fee to take the pictrure. downer

The Chinese zebras reminded me of the Tijuana zebras I posted about a while ago.

I was wondering if you were going to mention the Tijuana zebras. Especially since you live just up the road in San Diego ...
