A Chicago man couldn't bottle up his emotions, or some of his more physical outpourings last weekend when he waded into a bar fight to stab a stranger with a broken bottle, then decorated the police station he was hauled to with his own feces.
Greg Greaves leapt out of a bathroom stall at a tavern and began to slash the other man with a the business end of a beer bottle, opening gashes on his face, neck and upper body. Another patron got involved, subduing Greaves until cops could arrive and take the man to the police station where he had another, shall we say, "outburst."
While being booked, the 20-something drunk defecated into his hands and began decking the halls in perhaps the least delightful way possible. He's being held on $500,000 bail. (Chicago Tribune)
Small Unmarked Brain
A South Carolina woman attempted to negotiate with cops at the site of a crime scene, but failed miserably, when they refused to give her $300,000 to pull over her speeding car.
Jennifer Herring was moving at a high rate of speed near Myrtle Beach when cops tried to get her attention, to no avail. She ended up engaging in several calls to 911 dispatchers during the course of her run, and informed them that there was no emergency, but she would be willing to pull over if handed a big sack of bills.
Herring was hooked after she pulled into a driveway, where she was charged with DUI, felony evasion and a number of other counts. (UPI)
A Meow-Seum Piece!
Every "litter" bit helps in the craft of a Big Apple-based artist who uses an all-natural and mostly-gross medium to ensure that they're purr-fect: She packs her paintings with cat poop!
The avant-garde artist, who goes by the name of Siobhan Meow, shares a small apartment with 20 furry friends who are always pitching in on her paintings, which sell for upwards of $1500 a pop.
She recalls the first cat poop painting, saying, "I put a canvas down where [one of my cats] was going outside of the litter box, and he took to it, and started pooping and peeing on different parts of it. I threw some cat hair that I had swept up off the floor on it, and he pushed that around into different patterns."
She's just a whisker a way from becoming the next Picass-Meow. (Huffington Post)
