Rich's Joke Of The Day:

A patient underwent intense therapy to rid him of the delusion that a huge fortune awaited him. He was expecting two letters: one would give him sole title to a huge Spanish treasure lost by Francisco Orellena in the Amazon River; the other, of course, from Publisher’s Clearing House awarding him 11.7 million dollars.

Just when the psychiatrist was making real progress in curing the man, both letters arrived.

Rich's Crazy News Story Of The Day:
A Russian man guzzled around $5,000 worth of luxury black caviar in just 86 seconds in what is believed to be the world's first speed-eating contest centered around the expensive fish eggs. Alexander Lavrov won 10,000 rubles ($340) -- and more caviar -- for being the first of 12 contestants to demolish a pound of the delicacy.

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

Chicago police attempted to pull over a minivan after it ran a stop sign on the city's South Side and discovered the van, which did not stop, had been reported stolen. Police said a man allegedly abandoned the vehicle in a vacant lot and ran to his house where he jumped through the open front window and ran to a bedroom, then pretended to be asleep. He was arrested.

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

British insurance company Aviva accidentally fired all 1,300 staff of its asset management division Friday, before quickly realizing the gaffe and reassuring them the bluntly-worded email was intended only for one worker. The email from human resources told staff to surrender any company property as they left the building and reminded them that they were prevented from sharing any company secrets.
