Caught Lipsyncing
Amusing video on youtube of a guy caught lipsyncing. I like how he tries to pretend that nothing happened.

Live Frog in Lettuce
Yet another case of a family finding a live frog in their lettuce. The amazing thing is that instead of trying to sue someone, the family has adopted the frog as a pet. They call him "curious."

Fake Leg as Weapon
"Police said Donna Sturkie-Anthony took her elder sister's prosthetic leg and beat her with it."

They didn't really adopt the frog. They kept it for a few days, then put it up for adoption.

If an animal can live in your lettuce, then it's good for you! I've never found a frog, but I find worms all the time. It means that it wasn't sprayed with pesticides or any other junk.

Go organic!

leshka, there are many animals that can live in your lettuce and can kill you. Many prey species use poison to protect themselves from preditors. Also, most plant species have natural pesticides which are just as bad as any man-made ones.
