You can't just do it in the aisle, though. You gotta find a nice, clean, bathroom.

Sean McAfee of Johnstown did a double take on his way home from work late last week.
What caught the biker’s attention was a dead raccoon in the middle of Franklin Street. Not that unusual – except that this racoon had been painted over by a road crew.
“When I saw it, I almost wrecked my motorcycle because I was laughing so hard,” McAfee said.
According to a PennDOT spokesman, the incident Thursday, while embarrassing, was unavoidable.
“They did try to stop the paint gun,” District 9 traffic engineer John Ambrosini said.
“But with the amount of congestion Thursday, the squirrelly geometry of the road and the size of equipment, they couldn’t turn around to go back and fix the mistake.”
Ambrosini said a foreman vehicle usually travels in front of or behind the painting vehicle to clean up or move any obstructions.
But that morning there was no accompanying foreman vehicle.
The paint crew saw the dead critter, he said. But it was too late to stop the double yellow lines from running up the back of the raccoon.
A two-foot break in the lines shows where the crew apparently tried to avoid the deceased animal.
“We were out the next morning to clean it up,” Ambrosini said.
An unpainted spot is all that remains of where the unfortunate animal met its demise. Ambrosini said that he is unsure when a crew will repair the less-than-perfect paint job.
He said that the problem occurs “pretty frequently.”
But, he said, paint crews takes their jobs very seriously.
“Painting the yellow lines over the existing lines is not easily done.

18-year-old ticketed for ‘wooing’

Deshawn Fields, 18, of 306 Bond St., Bridgeport, was just "being stupid for no reason" according to Stratford police when he proceeded to repeatedly yell "woo" at people along Main Street, Sept. 18. He'll have to explain his reasoning to a judge on Aug. 3.
Fields was the passenger in a vehicle traveling along Main Street where an officer in an unmarked car first noticed him.

Police said Fields "wooed" at patrons at Blue Point Grill, Acapulco's and McCoy's Pub. According to the report, "several people were disturbed over his disturbing behavior."

It wasn't until Fields burst out of the car window again, this time startling a cyclist who almost lost control that the officer pulled the vehicle over.

Fields told officers he was simply "being stupid for no reason." He apologized for his behavior and promised not to do it again.

Fields was issued an infraction for creating a public disturbance with a summons date of Aug. 3.

Lol. I work with him. The camera crew was here at work today to do the interview. He told me he had no idea it was going to blow up like it did. The Associated Press even called him. We've been laughing about it all day.

Strange and cruel:

A doctor known for his research into near-death experiences of children was in jail on Thursday on charges he disciplined his 11-year-old daughter with a simulated drowning technique known as waterboarding, Delaware State Police said.

Dr. Melvin Morse, 58, and his wife Pauline Morse, 40, were arrested at their home in Georgetown, Delaware, on Tuesday on charges of endangering the welfare of a child, reckless endangerment and conspiracy.

The pediatrician, who was held in lieu of $14,500 bail, was accused of waterboarding the girl four times over two years starting in May 2009. Police said she had so much water poured on her face that it would go up her nose.

They said Pauline Morse, who was released after arrest, saw some of the punishment but did not stop it.

During questioning by law enforcement, Morris copped to grabbing the victim’s rear end and provided an explanation, of sorts, for his behavior, according to a sheriff’s report.

“Her booty looked so good,” he noted, “I just couldn’t resist touching it.”

So he wrecked a Trans-Am while drunk and threatened the cops when he was subsequently arrested while lying totally naked on the side of the road? Not only do I believe none of those facts would cause any of Mr. Travis' fans to blink an eye—I mean, he is a country singer—but I bet that set of facts alone could be used to write a chart-topping county song. Heck, it practically writes itself.
