Happy Tuesday! July 22, 2014
So today, we're going to step back from the negativity and look as some funny and heartwarming news.
First, the funny. Last week, some police in Kentucky arrested a 29-year-old man for shoplifting $35 worth of beer. The intoxicated suspect went into the holding cell when he (allegedly) conned the police into making a phone call. Using his cell phone, the man contacted the local pizza delivery service and prank ordered food for the police officers, under his own arresting officer's name. The pizza arrived, the police paid for the order (not realizing it was a prank), and then someone figured out what happened.
Oops. To put it mildly, they were not amused.
So the now-sober 29-year-old man faces more charges from his prank call; charges that are worse that what he was originally arrested for. Maybe this guy can get a clue on how to prank from seniors at a Santa Barbara High School in California. They hired a four person mariachi band to follow their principal around as a farewell gift (prank). The principal took it in stride, enjoying the bank as they played for an hour and a half.
On to a bit of Internet helpfulness...
Eight days ago, a man asked reddit users for help. You see, his wife gave birth to their daughter several weeks earlier, but the baby girl never left the NICU, dying before seeing the light of day. The father only has pictures of his daughter with tubes and such. He asked for help photoshopping or otherwise removing the tubes from the picture, so he and his wife would have one picture of her without medical trappings.
Here is the picture of the baby girl that the man posted:
