    If you think your Thursday was bad, just bear this in mind: someone woke up, went to their job where they pretend to be Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes‘ mascot Tony the Tiger on the internet, and had to ask people to stop sending them anthropomorphic animal porn. So three days ago Kellogg‘s started blocking the furries en masse. Even ones who weren’t posting porn. Even, it seems, ones who hadn’t even said anything to Tony on Twitter. But some stayed with Tony, and essentially ended up DDoSing the account with complaints about the blocking, requests for sex and a lot of...

    MUMBAI: Indian police successfully deployed an unusual technique to retrieve a gold chain that a thief had swallowed while officers were in hot pursuit - they force-fed him more than 40 bananas. The man denied snatching the chain from a woman in the street in Mumbai and swallowed it in a desperate bid to conceal his crime last week, but hospital X-rays suggested otherwise. Police in the western Indian city administered an enema which failed to yield the desired result. Doctors said an operation would be the best way forward, but police officers decided it would be too expensive and...

    SALEM — Witchcraft and jurisprudence are not exactly strangers in Salem. But even in a city that wears its ties to the 17th-century witch trials like an amulet, a courtroom duel between two self-proclaimed representatives of the occult is an unusual sight. But that’s what happened Wednesday in Salem District Court when a 75-year-old witch priestess and psychic asked a judge to stop a man who calls himself the “world’s best-known warlock” from placing vulgar phone calls to her in the middle of the night. “I can see into my own future. That’s why I’m here today,” said Lori Bruno-Sforza,...

Dillon will likely be put on 30-day unpaid leave after he overrode supervisors' orders to stop impersonating a machine, which the judge who presided over Dillon's hearing described as "a slow, stilted and monotonous voice."
