Motorized Cart

We've all seen those motorized carts at the stores.  They're supposed to be used by people who have a hard time walking around the aisles while shopping.  They've got a small basket by the handlebars and move about 2 miles per hour.  A man in Fairbanks, Alaska, tried to drive one home.  At such a low rate of speed, it didn't take police long to catch him.  Source: Yahoo News

Voting

A man in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, wanted to do his civic duty so he drove to an elementary school to vote.  He arrived a day early and drunk.  Not a good combination especially at a school.  Instead of voting, he was given a ride to the jail.  Source: Yahoo News

Dog and Duck in Minnesota

Max the dog lost his canine companion and had been very lonely for a couple of years until he met Quackers the duck.  Max would sit next to Quackers' pen and they became great friends.  Now they're inseparable.  The neighbors even look forward to seeing the two together.  Source: UPI

Water Gun

A man used a water gun to rob a couple of banks.  He painted it to look like a real gun and temporarily got away with it.  But crime doesn't pay; he's going away for a very long time.  The lesson...don't rob a bank and don't use a gun even a fake one.  Prison is on the other end of that.  Source: Yahoo News
