This week on Weird and Wacky Wednesdays, we look at a very strange way to end an argument. Then, we examine the case of the right to bear arms, and hands, and fingers. Finally, we consider other options for stirring your coffee in the morning without stirring up trouble.
Follow the jump to read more of this week’s weirdest and wackiest legal cases from around the globe.
That’s Not Funnye
According to police, a man named Fred Funnye did something that was not very funny at all. After going out and getting drunk, the man returned to his apartment that he shares with his girlfriend. A verbal dispute ensued, which escalated when Fred picked up a bucket that he urinates in, and dumped it on her.
Look, I know what you’re thinking… Fred urinates in a bucket? Why?
The weirdest part of this story is that everyone seems to accept that this is just… how it is. There is literally no explanation for why Fred keeps a bucket of piss lying around his house.
So, that’s that.
A doctor in New York has filed a criminal complaint against a patient after he very seriously assaulted and threatened him. What was the basis of the threat, you ask? Well, apparently the patient made a gun shape with his fingers and pointed it at the doctor.
Now, I thought the USA had the right to bear arms, and hands are attached to arms, and fingers are attached to hands… so is it no constitutional to bear a finger arm?
Of course, the patient did also utter a threat to the doctor that he would come back and get him while making this motion, so it was actually criminal. But nevertheless, still, a strange way to convey the message.
Coffee Stick, Night Stick, Do Not Stick That There
Police behaving badly do not normally get fired, and certainly not frequently. But one officer is struggling to understand why he was terminated after playing what he believed was a friendly prank on a female colleague.
The prank in question involved him stirring her coffee with his penis.
Yes, you read that right. In addition to this, the misguided officer engaged in a host of other sexually offensive behaviour toward his colleague. But I still cannot get over what prompts anyone to insert their phallus into a hot cup of coffee.
