LINCOLN, Neb. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Name-calling sure makes a girl hungry. Anna Godfrey of Lincoln, Nebraska, was arrested this past Wednesday (Apr. 28) after biting off a chunk of a man’s ear. The dude called her fat, so she struck back by having him for a snack.

ROGERSVILLE, Tenn. – A man in Tennessee may have to do hard time after a bizarre burglary. Matthew William Messina was clearly looking for a little stimulation when he robbed a gas station for 20 packs of male enhancement products, 42 containers of energy drinks, and 82 chocolate bars. He also took 23 packs of gum and 80 lighters.

LONDON – Whatever they’re speaking over in Brooklyn sounds like a foreign language. A London-based translation firm is looking for folks to help translate “Brooklynese” for Europeans. They’ve taken out a Craigslist ad offering $210 a day to whoever can decipher Brooklyn slang like “cawfee,” “fuhgeddaboutit,” and “whatyagonna do?”

AHMEDABAD, India – Scientists in India are studying an 82- year-old man who claims he hasn’t eaten or drank anything in 70 years. Prahlad Jani is a “breatharian” who believes a religious “elixir” is all he needs to survive. He doesn’t eat or drink anything, yet his body shows no signs of hunger or dehydration. If Jani’s fasting method really does work, scientists believe it’ll be a breakthrough for human survival techniques in extreme situations.
