Just before Phedre Fitton died of ovarian cancer four years ago, she gave her husband one final instruction: to water her plants in the washroom.Intent on fulfilling his late wife’s request, Nigel Fitton dutifully watered the plants in the home they shared in Johannesburg, South Africa for years.
Antonia Nicol, the couple’s daughter, told CTVNews.ca that her father was so proud of himself for keeping his wife’s plants alive for so long.
That is, until he discovered his wife had managed to prank him one last time.
A German man feared a monster courgette he found in his garden was an unexploded World War Two bomb and called the police.
The 5kg (11-pound) courgette had probably been thrown over a hedge into the 81 year old’s garden, police said.
Luckily no evacuation was required in Bretten, a town near Karlsruhe in south-west Germany.
Once police had reassured him following the early morning call-out, the pensioner disposed of the courgette himself.
It’s still a terrible idea, but it may no longer run you the risk of having your driver’s licence suspended and car impounded
And that’s as it ought to be. Not everything that’s a ‘bad idea’ needs to be outlawed. We can live with bad ideas, even if a drunk canoeist doesn’t always, if they drown after going over rapids or whatever. 😉
A California burglary suspect has been arrested after police say he left a key piece of evidence at the crime scene when he forgot to flush the toilet.
Investigators say Andrew Jensen’s sample in the toilet bowl at the home in Los Angeles suburb of Thousand Oaks matched DNA on an FBI database.
The 42-year-old was arrested on 28 July nearly a year after the residential burglary in October 2016.
Police said they collect any type of evidence left behind at crime scenes.
Let that be a lesson to us all. 😉
