CHARLESTON, S.C. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – What a hoot: A South Carolina town may soon be banning people from making annoying sounds on public streets between the hours of 11 PM and 7 AM. If the Sullivan Island Town Council passes the proposed law this July, it’ll make it illegal for people to sing, whistle, hoot, or holler on the street if it bothers others nearby. The town code already bans crying, calling, shouting, and using musical instruments in the same capacity.

DENVILLE, N.J. – People who attend the Morris Knolls High School graduation in Denville, New Jersey, today (Jun. 23) will be seeing double – eight times in a row. Eight sets of twins will be among the graduating seniors walking in the ceremony – just two sets shy of a Guinness World Record for the most duos at one given graduation.

DOUGLAS, Ariz. – The Arizona border isn’t just rejecting immigrants, they’re forbidding Mexican pinatas from crossing over too. U.S. Customs and Border Protection recently stopped a tractor-trailer carrying 108 Disney character pinatas from crossing into Arizona for further inspection. The toys were on their way to Colorado, but officers seized them as illegal merchandise.

SABINA, Ohio – A daredevil in Ohio immediately regretted a stunt that landed him on the back of a moving semi-truck. Brandon Farmer had been drinking when his friends dared him to jump onto a truck at a red light. The truck took off with him on the back and drove onto the highway for 10 miles when Farmer decided to call 911 for help because he was “holding on for dear life.” A cop was able to stop the semi and Farmer got off, much to the surprise of the unaware driver.
