Woman Tows Kids In Wagon Behind Her Car
Another 'Mom of the Year' candidate is among us. Here's your 'Crappy News' for Monday, July 17th.
Springfield, OR- A woman was arrested Wednesday after motorists noticed her towing three children...behind her car...in rush hour traffic.
27-year-old Alana Donahue admitted to police that she pulled her 2-year-old daughter, 4-year-old son and 8-year-old nephew -- in a small, plastic red wagon going around a busy roundabout multiple times. Donahue told officers that it was no big deal--that she was just "showing the kids a good time" and only driving about five miles per hour.
Witnesses told police that Donahue was holding up traffic and then yelling at motorists to get out of her way and mind their own business. She's been charged with reckless endangerment. [The Oregonian]

Solihull, England- You know the feeling of going bed without taking out your contact lenses? This is about 100 times worse than that...
A 67-year-old woman went in for cataract surgery in November. She'd been complaining of dry eyes, and the ophthalmologist soon discovered why. Her doctor found 27 missing contact lenses (!) in the woman's eye socket.
The patient had been wearing monthly disposable contact lenses for the past 35 years but did not attend regular optometrist appointments. After removing the lenses, the woman said she felt a lot better (ya think?). [AOP.org]
Blue Springs, MO- A man remains on the loose after stealing sex toys.
The suspect, described as a white male with a shaved head and a tattoos, went into an adult novelty store Wednesday night and walked out with about $90 in merchandise.
I'm not sure what kind of party this guy's planning but I don't want ANY part of it...
