Is that weed, son? No officer, it's just a moldy fry...
Somerville Police are cracking down on drivers who don't stop for pedestrians in the crosswalk. Some say it's entrapment. The police say they are just enforcing the law. What do YOU think? (PS - the commentary is the BEST part of this whole video.)

FYI - in case you want to read up on them, you can find Mass General Laws regarding pedestrians here.
On Monday, a Frontier Airlines flight from Washington D.C. to Denver got diverted to Cheyenne, Wyoming because of a storm in Colorado. And while they waited for the weather to clear up, they had to sit on the tarmac for two-and-a-half hours. There wasn't any food on the plane, but the pilot realized people were probably hungry, and decided to do something about it. His name is Gerhard Brandner, and this is what he did. He got on the P.A. system, and said, quote, "Frontier Airlines is known for being one of the cheapest airlines in the U.S., but your captain is NOT cheap . . . I just ordered PIZZA for the entire plane." Then everyone on the plane went NUTS. That was around 10:00 P.M. And within 30 minutes, delivery guys from a nearby Domino's showed up with 35 pizzas to feed all 160 passengers. It cost several hundred dollars, and Gerhard paid for the whole thing. To get through security, they went to the front desk first. Then TSA agents brought them to meet the flight attendants, who handled it from there. It's not clear if the pizzas had to be X-rayed or anything. But according to the FDA, X-rayed food IS safe to eat. And it's lucky Dominos was able to stick to their 30-minutes-or-less thing. Because right after the pizzas got there, the plane took off. It got to Denver about five hours late.
If you ask me, the best way to avoid getting gored during the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain is . . . NOT ATTEND the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain. Anyone who does is just asking for it. But a 32-year-old author from Chicago named Bill Hillman actually co-authored a BOOK on the subject. It's called, "Fiesta: How to Survive the Bulls of Pamplona", and it came out last month. But we're thinking sales MIGHT take a hit after this. Bill is in Spain right now, attending the festival for his tenth year in a row. And yesterday . . . HE GOT GORED BY A BULL. A 1,300-pound bull got him twice in the right thigh. He was listed in serious condition and had to have surgery. Technically, his advice on how to survive the event is still valid. His doctors say the bull JUST missed an artery, and they expect Bill to make a full recovery.
If God wants to get our attention in the form of food, he should appear on a pizza or floating in gravy. I'm not sure how many people he can reach with vegetables. Especially BAD vegetables. Jermarcus Brady of Baton Rouge, Louisiana works as a chef at an Italian restaurant called Gino's. And he was cutting an EGGPLANT in half on Monday and was shocked . . . when he found God inside. Literally. The seeds inside spelled the word "God" in capital letters. And while we're usually cynical, it's really true . . . in the photo of the eggplant, it 100% says "GOD" inside. Jermarcus says, quote, "I don't know what it means. All I know is it tells me, 'Hey, he's real,' and there's nothing that can change my mind about that."
We also went inside the warped female brain to find out why women hate when their men buy them lingerie!
