Free Ice-Cream For Pothole Problems

Sometimes driving over potholes can also earn you a benefit – an ice cream for free, says a report.

A suburban Detroit business is offering a treat for those who have had their driving disrupted by potholes in recent weeks.

The Detroit Free Press reports Farmhouse Coffee & Ice Cream in Franklin is offering a free scoop of Ashby Sterling Ice Cream’s “Michigan Pothole” for those who have replaced a tyre or fixed other damage due to a pothole, according to the Associated Press.

The newspaper says to get a scoop a receipt detailing the repair. The promotion runs until March 25. The ice cream flavour is described as “thick black tar fudge and chocolate ice cream with chunky chocolate cookie asphalt pieces.”

Expensive Mistake For Driver

Don’t trust your judgement while driving because sometimes you may end up paying big time, according to a report.

A tractor-trailer driver transporting privately owned luxury cars in the US may have made an expensive mistake when he got trapped under a Delaware overpass, according to AP.

The News Journal cites a Wilmington police report that says the driver erroneously thought he could clear the bridge, but got stuck. The damage extended to several of the Porsches, Maseratis, Bentleys and other cars that were being transported in an enclosed, climate-controlled environment from Florida to Delaware. The driver was cited for inattentive driving.

Snake Eats Entire Deer As Meal

Oh Dear! A python had actually consumed an entire deer in one go, says a report.

Researchers studying invasive Burmese pythons in Florida came upon something they’d never seen before – an 11-foot-long python had consumed an entire deer that weighed more than the snake itself.

The wildlife biologists tracking the slithery creatures stumbled upon a bloated snake in Collier Seminole State Park, and when they moved the creature it began regurgitating a white-tailed deer fawn, according to AP.

Biologist Ian Bartoszek told the Naples Daily News that the fawn weighed 16 kg; the snake 14 kg. Bartoszek said it was the largest python-to-prey weight difference he had measured.

Holy Snakes! Python Plays With Toddler

A 13ft python wrapped itself around a toddler’s head and her father just watched on, according to a report.

Snake enthusiast Jamie Guarino, from Walled Lake, Detroit, US, insisted that his 14-month-old daughter Alyssa was in no danger from their giant 10-year-old pet snake Nay-Nay at the time, according to the report in Mirror.

The video was shot six years ago but was re-released recently, raising a controversy. Guarino said that he released the video to challenge people’s perceptions around snakes and to prove that human fears of them are often irrational.

Jumping Into The Lion’s Den

It always pays to know your bearings as a couple of shoplifters found out to their horror, says a report.

Two shoplifting suspects running from police scaled a fence to get away from officers and landed in a secure parking lot of a police station — and in custody, according to an AP report.

Officials said that officers were called to a petrol station for possible shoplifting. Authorities say as officers arrived, the suspects, 28-year-old Marwan Al Ebadi and 29-year-old Salma Hourieh, took off running. The pair ran along the side of a building and jumped a fence, despite a sign for “Peoria Police” above the door.

Security video shows Hourieh trying to hide under a bench before being placed in custody. Al Ebadi climbed back over the fence and was arrested on the street.
