Man Arrested For Planking Around Town

“It’s official, even the police have had enough with this planking nonsense.

Planking Man Caught and Arrested

A Wisconsin municipal court convicted 19-year-old Alexander Hart of disorderly conduct on Tuesday after the Manitowoc man used social media to post photographs of himself engaged in the stiff-bodied prank at several locations around town.

The 10 photographs presented as evidence to the court show Hart lying across an ATM machine, boxed merchandise at a Wal-Mart, several lawn mowers, a Walmart checkout counter, a Lowes department store shelf, and a police car.

Tekegraph UK Reports: “The North Yorkshire town’s Turkish Baths have offered single-sex sessions, as well as mixed sessions, since they opened back in 1897. They are one of only seven Victorian baths still in existence.

Harrogate Council announced last month that it would be ending the all-male sessions in January, blaming finances. But a councillor has now admitted covering up complaints about the antics of some bathers – saying she didn’t want to ruin the town’s good name.

Cabinet member for culture, Coun Caroline Bayliss said the authority had been forced to act following repeated allegations from members of the public, stretching back several years. We have unfortunately had complaints from other male users of the Turkish Baths.

“These are problems that are very difficult for our staff to deal with over a period of a number of years.”

Cat Inherits Millions of Euros

The Telegraphy UK reports: “Tommaso went from flea-bitten alley cat to “pussy galore” after being rescued by a lonely old lady, named only as Maria Assunta, who was married to a property tycoon but widowed at an early age. The couple had no children.

She became besotted with her pet but as her health began to fail, feared for his future.

So in November 2009 she wrote out a will in which she bequeathed her “entire estate” to the unknowing Tommaso.

“We’re convinced that Stefania is the right person to carry out the old lady’s wishes. She loves animals just like the woman she devoted herself to right up until the end.”

The nurse said she had no inkling that her charge was so rich. “I promised her that I would look after the cat when she was no longer around. She wanted to be sure that Tommaso would be loved and cuddled. But I never imagined that she had this sort of wealth. She was very discreet and quite, I knew very little of her private life. She only told me that she had suffered from loneliness a lot.”

Tommaso now lives with his new owner and another cat in a house outside Rome. The address is being kept a secret, out of fears that the newly-enriched moggy will be besieged by fortune hunters and con men.” By Nick Squires, Rome
