    The weird news thread

    This is "the weird news thread." To clarify, it is not a news thread that it weird. Rather, it is a thread devoted to weird news. For starters:

    Massachusetts police stop driver for pizza box license plate
    The Associated Press, Nov 15 2017

    Police officers in a Massachusetts town jokingly recommend drivers get a little more creative if they make their own illegal license plates. The Hopkinton Police Department said a driver was stopped Sunday with a license plate made from a pizza box. The department discourages people from making their own plates. But if someone does, the department says not to use a cardboard box and felt tip pens. Hopkinton police say the driver is facing charges that include operating an uninsured and unregistered vehicle and attaching "fake homemade" plates.

    Man gets his dying wish: To be buried with cheesesteaks
    The Associated Press, Nov 17 2017

    Richard Lussi, a 76-year-old father of four in Plains, Pennsylvania, always joked that he didn't want to venture into the afterlife hungry got his wish when he was buried with two cheesesteaks from his favorite sandwich shop — Pat's King of Steaks in Philadelphia. According to his grandson, Dominic Lussi, when asked what he wanted to take with him when he died, Richard Lussi replied, "What do you think? Pat's cheesesteak! No onions because they'll come back to haunt me."

    Lussi died of heart complications on October 10. He loved the sandwiches even though he had a bad heart and his doctor had warned him to watch what he ate. Pat's owner, Frank Olivieri Jr., said he was flattered and bewildered by someone choosing to be buried with his sandwiches. As for what the second cheesesteak might be for, he speculated: "Maybe it's a bribe for Saint Peter."

    A very high percentage of weird new stories originate in Florida. I said that above and I'm saying it again. This schmuck had a case of Budweiser on the lawn mower and his blood alcohol level was three times the legal limit.
