Fight Against Maturity

His girlfriend left him behind. What’s a guy to do?

A drunk German sparked a slow-speed police chase after stealing a tractor to get home from a nightclub after his girlfriend left without him, said police, who used pepper spray to try to stop the vehicle.

It took six police cars, pepper spray, a nail strip,  bullet holes in the tires, and 40 minutes  to stop him.

Oh, and did I mention he rammed a police car and hit another vehicle along the way? He’s going to have more than a headache and hangover to contend with when he sobers up.

A man and his lawnmowers…it’s a beautiful thing

Picture 15

Mr. Stan Hardwick, a retired greenskeeper who worked 40 years for the Filey Golf Links, has a somewhat unusual hooby. He collects old lawnmowers and now has 365 of them.

Does his wife object to having lawnmowers all over the house? According to Mr Hardwick she is tolerant of his collection but does occasionally “play up a bit sometimes.”

The oldest one he has is from 1862 and still works.

The doctors were “shocked”? I bet she was too.
