Must’ve been the chow mein. Ohio resident Tracey McCloud says that she ordered some Chinese food this week, but quickly found that it was “not [up] to par” and asked for a refund. According to her, the restaurant then took her food back but refused to return the money, which is when she decided to call in the authorities. “…I asked to get my money back, and they acting like they don’t understand me…” McCloud told the dispatcher. She was later charged with a misdemeanor for misuse of 911.
Get your chainsaws ready, it’s a real-life Sharknado! Just in time for Discovery’s Shark Week, a mom in Virginia was pretty shocked when her kids found a 13-incher just laying near a pond in her backyard. The animal was already dead and appeared to be covered in talon marks when they found it, which might help explain how it became airborne. A scientist at the Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center Foundation later explained that it’s likely an osprey or other large bird dropped the shark while flying overhead. Strangely, the family now keeps it in their freezer to show curious neighbours.
So that’s where they went! Tiki the black Labrador was taken to a veterinarian after she began vomiting and not responding to medication. But once there, the pooch was sent for a series of X-rays that revealed the problem: a large mass sitting in her stomach. Basically, they found their entire closet in there. “Four rubber bands, a Band-Aid, eight pairs of underwear and 62 hair bands is a lot to be in a dog’s stomach, especially of Tiki’s size,” the head vet on the case said. Fortunately, the pooch is expected to make a full recovery.
That should help smooth out their relationship! Three siblings in Michigan were literally ordered to have a “healthy relationship” with their father following their parents’ divorce. But when the kids continued to defy those orders, the judge followed through on her promises to send them to a juvenile detention facility. Even though the oldest child argued he didn’t want to have a relationship with his father because he’s “violent,” the three siblings were still ordered to spend the summer in the facility.
“Dude, where’s my pond?” That’s probably what a woman in the U.K. was saying after she lost her backyard pond to a tornado. Celia Marker didn’t actually see the cyclone suck the water out, but she knows it was still there when she went inside to wait out what forecasters were saying was going to be a nasty storm. But when Marker returned, her prized collection of koi carp were flopping around, gasping for breath in the shallow water that remained. The good news? The pond itself was fine, all Marker had to do was restore the water supply.
