25 Straight Up Screwy Headlines That Really Polished Our Flatware
Who would've thought that Dr. Oz would stoop so low as to hire actors to play convicts in support of his Senate election opponent? Well, OK, maybe nearly everybody… anyway, exactly what happened. The good doctor's team reportedly hired a group of men to dress up as convicted felons and stand outside with signs reading “Inmates for Fetterman.” One actor even took to social media to share images from the event, saying he couldn't believe how many people actually thought he was a real ex-con. Meanwhile, in London, it was revealed that the Metropolitan police officer who wrote the force's drug strategy is a daily weed smoker. Commander Julian Bennett allegedly smoked cannabis in front of his lodger every day and later threatened to resign when asked if he'd take a drug test. Talk about being caught red-handed! And last but not least, Polish researchers made an eerie discovery while excavating a cemetery: the skeleton of a woman buried under a sickle with a triangular padlock on her foot. Yeah… turns out she may have been part of an elaborate attempt by locals back in the day to keep vampires from rising from their graves. Superstitious much?
