Misfit News 2-14-13
Yes, I know it’s actually the 13th, but I post my blog entries a day early. I’m such a rebel.
That said, on to the first misfit story of the week!
I didn’t have to look very hard to find this gem. In fact, I just stumbled upon it while browsing my Yahoo! homepage. Here’s the headline that caught my attention:
A meth lab was found in a porta-potty in the middle of a golf course
My journalism knowledge suggests that this is a terrible headline for the sake of a headline, but hey, I went ahead and read the story, right? Anyway…
Once I started reading, I realized this story was based in Oklahoma. And honestly, the photo reminded me of the golf course in my town!
I was a little worried. Luckily, I figured out it was in a different location, so it’s not so bad.
Here’s the story by Shane Bacon:
There is absolutely nothing enjoyable about having to take a bathroom break in a porta-potty. They smell, they’re dirty and you’re either usually super hot or super cold while inside of one.
But a porta-potty meth lab on a golf course? That isn’t a thing, right?!
Wrong. In Oklahoma, investigators found a mini meth lab inside a porta-potty in the middle of a golf course, which has to be the weirdest/most creative meth lab in history.
“Under cover drug agents defuse a mini meth lab found inside a porta-potty in the middle of a golf course Tuesday in Purcell. Staffers noticed strange sports drink bottles with chemicals inside the porta-potty and called police.
Officers arrived and soon realized someone had been inside making meth using the “shake and bake” method.”
There’s also a video, so get the rest here.
I found this next story within a different story. Here’s what I read that made me search for the rest of the information:
“Monstrous” might be the best way to describe Andrew Mendoza, who admitted that he forced himself on his neighbor’s horse because he was ‘trying to make the horse have a baby,” a theoretical offspring he describes as a “horseman.”
Someone never had sex-ed.
The story on Huffingtonpost.com provided the official NSFW confession statement from Mendoza, which I’ll let you read for yourself, at your own discretion here. As for the official headline:
Andrew Mendoza Had Sex With Horse, Was ‘Trying To Make The Horse Have A Baby’: Statement
And the story:
His girlfriend was unreliable, so he went out to find a stable relationship. (Really, Huffpost? A horse pun?)
According to a signed — though undated — statement newly released by the Smoking Gun, Andrew Mendoza of Danavang, Texas, was waiting for his girlfriend to call one night and told himself that if he didn’t hear from her, he would go next door and “mess with the neighbor’s horse.” She didn’t call.
The document details the encounter in graphic detail before stating, “I was trying to make the horse have a baby. I was thinking it would have a horseman baby. I ain’t going to lie, I blew a nut in the horse.”
He later pleaded guilty to public lewdness and criminal trespassing, according to the Smoking Gun, and spent four months in jail.
Only four months? That poor horse.
