BANANA ATTACKS GORILLA THEN SPLITS!
I'm just going to report this the way I found it.
By Melissa Reid Fox 8 News Reporter
STRONGSVILLE, Ohio — There is a banana at large in Strongsville.
Police say that someone dressed up as a banana and attacked the Wireless Center's mascot, a gorilla, last week.
"I noticed a kid in the bushes. Then he just emerged, dressed up as a banana, and sprinted as fast as he could at our gorilla," said Brandon Parham, the manager. "The kid just speared our gorilla."
Parham and another employee witnessed the attack. "The kid was in mid-air, flying. He just looked like a Spartan from that movie '300,' except he was a banana," added Parham.
The Wireless Center uses the gorilla as an advertising tool on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays.
"After he got tackled, the gorilla just got back up and adjusted his head. He kept on waving his sign around," said Parham.
Police say the person dressed up as a banana split and headed south on Pearl Road.
According to Parham, the person who was wearing the gorilla costume will recover.
"This is just bizarre. It's really not normal of the food chain. That's not really how this works. The gorilla should have won," said Parham.
Police were unable to locate the banana. They believe it was prank.
"It does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brush-fires of freedom in the minds of men."
Investigators say a Massachusetts woman who was trying to perform repairs on her house ended up blowing it up instead.
The homeowner, identified as 52-year-old Laurie Beliveau of Taunton, got out of the house before the Sunday afternoon explosion and fire and no one was hurt.
State Fire Marshal Stephen Coan and Fire Chief Timothy Bradshaw said Monday that the woman was trying to repair her gas-fueled hot water heater and inadvertently removed the gas shut-off valve. This allowed gas to pour into the basement, where it ignited.
The blaze destroyed the single-family home after firefighters arrived.
(Of course what happened before they arrived helped)

Car-jacker nabbed after senior-moment - A 64-year-old man in Geelong, Australia was arrested after the owner of the car he tried to steal called police. The ride stealing wannabe couldn't make a fast getaway because it took too much time to load his walker into the car! I'm not kidding.
"Fathom the odd hypocrisy that the government wants every citizen to prove that they are insured, but people don't have to prove they are citizens."
Gas or Petrol
'Petrol' is used in most of the Commonwealth Countries while the term 'Gasoline' is basically used in North American Countries. Etymology of petrol is also quite interesting. The word 'gasolene' first came into existence in 1865 which was modified to the modern spelling 'gasoline' in 1871. Initially any other fuel other than diesel or liquefied gas which could be used in engines was termed as gasoline. The word 'petrol' came into existence in early 1892. Carless-Capel & Leonard, a German wholesaler, was the first company to register 'petrol' as a trade name.
