Feel Free to Write Your Own Headlines

Sometimes stuff just happens. The hammer hits your thumb. Your daughter backs into the light pole. The toilet backs up. A naked guy shows up at your desk.

As a performance shop in Oklahoma City learned the other day, this kind of thing happens all the time.

Seems the owner of said shop stepped out to grab lunch, and when he came back there was a stark naked man seated at his computer. Enjoying a recently obtained adult publication.

The man, a 47-year-old “transient” (as he was described), was apparently trying to earn some money by helping clean up around the shop.

Except he was minus a uniform (of any kind) and was, as they say, a bit preoccupied.

Captain Obvious of the local police department stated flatly, “It is an unusual occurrence and one we don’t see everyday here where somebody comes in and just finds someone sitting nude at his desk.”

Meanwhile, the store owner, besides never being able to sleep again, is looking for a new desk chair. The used one will probably be thrown away, if not burned.

So go ahead and craft your best headline for this tale and post it in the Comments area below.

Speaking of weirdness, seems Diamond Bar, Calif., has some strange laws. At least some which haven’t been well-communicated to local residents.

A local man has racked up $8,000 in bail bonds, legal fees and fines for having a flat tire. In his own driveway. He faces another arrest now because he has failed to have the offending tire fixed, even after numerous citations and a previous arrest for failing to appear in court after he was allegedly sent previous citations.

The man claims he didn’t know having a flat tire in one’s own driveway was a violation until a pair of deputies showed up one day. With a warrant for his arrest.

The vehicle, a 1979 Mercedes SL, has a flat tire, which the city says make the vehicle inoperable, and, as such, some type of illegal public nuisance.

The city claims it had issued the man, a laid off pharmacist, numerous citations. The man, struggling to make mortgage payments on his meager unemployment checks, claims otherwise.

“We were doing OK until this happened,” the man told local media.

His attorney thinks the city’s overly aggressive approach is unwarranted. The man was not running a chop shop and wanted to get the vehicle back on the road, the lawyer said.

Guess he had choose between feeding his family or fixing a tire.

Meanwhile, the offending Mercedes has been towed to storage, at the man’s expense.

Again, have at this one, gang. Post your headline ideas in the Comments section below!
