This week on Weird and Wacky Wednesdays, we have some truly bizarre cases. First we find out about another scheme to jump the Covid-19 vaccine line. Then we examine a gruesome story from Scotland. Finally, a bomb squad made an unexpected discovery when they were called to a suspicious package.
Follow the jump and learn more about this week’s weirdest and wackiest legal cases from around the globe.
Get in line
Recently on WWW we witnessed the case of a Vancouver couple who tried to get Covid-19 vaccines intended for vulnerable First Nations members by flying to the Yukon. This week there’s another example of people shamelessly trying to get vaccinated ahead of schedule, this time in Florida.
A pair of Florida women posed as elderly grandmas by wearing bonnets and gloves in attempt to secure coronavirus jabs. Infuriatingly, they apparently had valid vaccine cards after already having their first shots. Luckily they were caught before they could get their second ones.
The two women were turned over to police who issued trespass warnings and no other action was taken.
Seagulls. They’re flying pests known for swooping down from the air and stealing food out of people’s hands at the beach. They usually steal fries but the gulls in Scotland are apparently a little different.
An argument broke out between a man and woman in a street in Edinburgh. The woman bit off a piece of the man’s tongue and spat it out. Cue a seagull which flew down, picked up the fleshy chunk and flew off with it before injured man could get it back.
The gruesome incident left the man permanently scarred and the seagull with terrible indigestion.
Kitten time bomb
And now a slightly more upbeat story. Officers in Ohio were called to a suspicious bag found outside a church.
When a bomb unit arrived at the scene they discovered the unidentified bag did not contain a bomb but actually a cat and her six newborn kittens.
A handwritten note written attached to the bag said that “Sprinkles” went into labor the day before.
