Guy jacks up a Beemer, slides under in an attempt to cut off the catalytic converter and the car falls on him.
...and whether he moved or the car just moved a little bit, that was unfortunate, the gravel substance on the ground,” Kalanj added.

When the Animal Freak Shows were at exhibitions this dog was promoted as the "Elephant Skinned Dog". Certainly wasn't a freak by any stretch of the imagination.

Yaaa....ummm I bet the groom's bank account made that tough call easier to swallow. I mean if he was broke or they were getting married because bride#1 and groom actually liked each other, the wedding would have been cancelled when bride#1 died.

I hope the surfer keeps surfacing.

Interesting a word that I can't include in Castanet Forums (it will be *bleep* 'ed) is in a Castanet headline.
