Upon discovering that her purchase turned out to be sugar, she called the local police and demanded that they arrest her drug dealer and get her a refund.
Police discovered that Ms. Besham had a crack pipe, and she was arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia.
The “You Can Get Into Big Trouble If You Break This Law” Sammy goes to:
Giulio Cesare Fava, mayor of Falciano del Massico, in Italy.
Newscore reported in March that Signor Fava had forbidden any of the town’s residents to die.
“It is forbidden for residents,” the mayor said, “to go beyond the boundaries of early life, to go into the afterlife.”
It seems Falciano del Massico’s 4,000 residents are building a new cemetery, and until Mayor Fava gained the right permits, the townsfolk had to stay above ground or risk breaking the law.
The “Parents Of The Year” Sammy goes to:
An Egyptian couple with a flighty idea.
Overwhelming the fierce competition in this category were an unidentified mom and dad who tried to smuggle their 5-month-old baby in their luggage at the Sharjah International Airport in the United Arab Emirates in July.
“When customs officials saw the baby inside the bag at the X-ray scanner, they were stunned,” police officials told Gulf News. “This machine is very dangerous for anyone, let alone a baby in a bag, to pass through.”
Police said the couple resorted to the dangerous subterfuge because the infant didn’t have a passport or visa, and “they wanted to have him with them in the UAE.”
Authorities said the baby could have died after being put into the luggage.
A truly scary thought: How did the visa-less baby and his parents get through airport security in Egypt on their way to the UAE?
