The story behind this odd tombstone, which is in a New Jersey cemetery, is that the young man, Raymond Tse, who died at the age of 16 always aspired to own a Mercedes-Benz.  Well his older brother, David,  made sure that he got his wish even in death.  This full-sized Mercedes-Benz was carved from a single piece of granite and has all of the details that a normal Mercedes-Benz would have except for the side mirrors.  You can see the full story as I saw it by clicking HERE.

(Thanks Steve Harvey for submitting this story to me)

Boy kidnapped by his own family to teach him a lesson – video

I saw this story today on CNN about a 6-year old boy who was “kidnapped” by his family to teach him a lesson about being too nice to strangers. Well when you put a bag over his head, pull his pants down, and show him a gun. That’s going too far! I understand that the intent was to teach him a valuable lesson, but this was too much. I’m curious to see what the punishment will be.

Auto dealer mannequin on billboard causes 911 calls – video

Deery Brothers of Burlington is a car dealership, in West Burlington, Iowa, that had the novel idea of putting a mannequin on a billboard and that move caused quite a stir in the town. Some people thought that the mannequin was a real man on the billboard who was about to jump off. In fact when the first deputies arrived on the scene it was dark outside and they tried to reason with the man for a few minutes before realizing that they were talking to a dummy. I wish I could have seen and heard that conversation. 😉

Thank you Brad Deery for sharing this information with me.

If often seems like elected officials get special treatment that us common folks don’t get.  That’s why I have to report the odd news that U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry was fined $50 for not shoveling the snow on a side street next to his Boston home.  Click HERE to see the full story as I saw it on Reuters.  I have no idea if Kerry will actually have to pay the fine.  What to you think?  😉
