It’s weird how the thought of buying a used mattress kind of freaks me out, however going to stay in a hotel and sleeping on a mattress that many other people have slept on doesn’t bother me as much. I do however like to bring my own pillow when sleeping in a hotel.


The state of Florida has been on a roll when it comes to weird news stories. Here is another one…

Police were called to a home in Lake Worth, FL after a neighbor called them to report hearing a woman screaming for help last week.

When deputies arrived they discovered that the “woman” was actually a parrot named Rambo.

The man was changing the brakes on his wife’s car and had the 40-year-old parrot on his outside perch. The bird’s owner said that Rambo sometimes yells “help, help, let me out”. The man explained that “[It’s] something I taught him when I was a kid and Rambo lived in a cage.”

The owner has introduced the neighbor to Rambo after the situation, and all had a good laugh over the incident.



Here is a video that will put a smile on your face.

There were a couple of masked bandits wandering around a home. The homeowner caught them on video…

I love the reaction from the second raccoon!
