Here are a couple of ridiculous stories for you, to lighten the mood:

A federal prison inmate has filed a 23 million dollar lawsuit against NASCAR, blaming them for his criminal lifestyle.

A man in Adelaide, Australia broke into a car and was caught by police because he couldn't get out of the car. He had locked himself in.

And here's some good news:

The horrible people known as Westboro Baptist Church has been hit with a $23 million judgment in a case filed by a Maryland father of a soldier whose funeral they picketed. Go Maryland!!

And a really, really stupid story:

The L.A. County Board of Supervisors plans to rename Negrohead Mountain to honor a local pioneer named John Ballard. That's what they are claiming, however. Personally I think it's because of the "Negro-" part. It's the timing that is suspect, in my opinion.
The original name of the mountain -- the tallest in the region -- contained a racial slur in place of Negro but was changed due to federal civil rights legislation in the 1960s, Bellman said.

The goal of changing the name again is to directly honor Ballard and his family's contribution to the area, Yaroslavsky said.
Why didn't they want to directly honor Ballard before Obama was elected? They've had more than 40 years since the last renaming.
