Rich's Joke Of The Day:

The drill sergeant making his morning announcements to a group of newcomers in a training camp, stated: "Today, gentlemen, I have some good news and some bad news. First, the good news Private Peters will be setting the pace on our morning run.”

With this the platoon was overjoyed, as Private Peters was overweight and terribly slow. But then the drill sergeant finished his statement: "Now for the bad news. Private Peters will be driving a truck."

Rich's Crazy News Story Of The Day:
A pair of German artists are allowing visitors to their Web site to vote on whether or not they will use a guillotine to behead a sheep. The two Berlin artists created a fully functioning guillotine and pictured it on their Web site alongside its possible victim, a live sheep. The artists said their "experiment" is a "reflection on our society" and "represents the current state of democracy." Authorities said the pair could face animal cruelty charges if they harm the sheep.

The Wacky World of Crime With Officer Hancock's police blotter:

An employee, who works at the Columbus, Ohio water-treatment plant, was walking near a local river when he stepped on a shoe that appeared to be full and had a bone visibly sticking out of it. When police took a closer look at the shoe, they found it was full of sticks and dirt, and the bone appeared to be from a steak, not a human skeleton.

This is Officer Hancock. Be careful. There are a lot of wackos out there!

The latest news from the Hancock News Service - odd news fair and balanced!

What did the dairy cow order when she got to the drive-thru window at McDonalds? Nothing - she just wanted a little attention. That's what Sandy Winn says was the reason her cow, Darcy, wandered from her pen and ended up at takeout window of the fast-food restaurant near Brush, Colorado. Winn said that Darcy is a good cow until she's bored - and then she goes looking for attention. The cow didn't get a burger and was taken home.
