A former middle school teacher in Kentucky has pleaded not guilty to accusations that she threatened to cut off a student’s penis and shove it down his throat during a kickball game.

Chrystal Graham was charged with second-degree disorderly conduct over the alleged incident, which occurred at Anderson County Middle School on the last day of school in 2017.

The incident began when Graham was playing kickball with a group of students, one of whom jumped on another’s back, according to court documents obtained by the Louisville Courier-Journal. A witness told police they heard the teacher tell the student to get off the other player “or I’ll cut your dick off and shove it down your throat.”

A short time later, Graham allegedly used both middle fingers to flip off the student who witnessed the earlier exchange.

not super exciting, but that's the county i lived in a few years back... could be my neighbors!... i recall once walking to my car past a group of similar-looking folk & hearing 'let's jump him'... and another discouraging the idea... that was comforting :p

LAND O’ LAKES, Fla. (AP) — A man who Florida authorities originally said accidentally shot himself in a supermarket checkout line was actually shot by his wife’s gun.

The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office told the Tampa Bay Times on Monday that deputies’ investigation shows that 69-year-old Vernon Messier was shot Sunday when his wife’s purse fell off a counter at a Land O’ Lake Publix, causing the two-shot derringer inside to fire.

The bullet struck Messier in the shin. Deputies said 67-year-old Lillian Messier has a concealed weapons permit. No charges are expected and deputies said Vernon Messier is recovering.

An Austrian government official is having a cow over a bizarre Swiss app challenge urging followers to kiss bovines to raise money for charity.

The “KuhKussChallenge,” launched earlier this week on the Castl app, urges users in Switzerland, Austria and other German-speaking countries to kiss cows – “with or without tongue” – to raise charity funds, reported Agence France Presse.

Elisabeth Köstinger, Austria’s minister for sustainability and tourism, called the challenge “dangerous mischief.” She warned that pastures are “are not petting zoos” and that trying to kiss cows could have “serious consequences.”

Köstinger said that cows could become aggressive, particularly when defending their calves.

“Negligent handling of Austrian pastures has led to serious accidents in the past,” said Köstinger, according to a translation of a tweet. “I don’t understand a challenge of this kind!”

Tim Meadows showed up on Brooklyn Nine-Nine for S6E17 (one of the newest episodes; episodes 17 and 18 both aired yesterday, May 16th, 2019). His parts were really funny (lol moments), whereas the rest of the episode was about average ;p

so Dennis Rodman & friends are accused of stealing/destroying a large amethyst geode & clothing from a yoga place

he claims they offered him the clothing as payment for removing the geode...

lengthy not very interesting video:

the apparent clerk distracted at ~0:12
geode bumbling off desk ~0:28
foreground woman stuffing clothes in bag ~0:32

but his suspect story seems extra suspect

lulz... his geode-lifting friend was either drugged out of his mind or is just super incompetent :D ... pretty much zero strategy for handling the geode.. like, “Oh, it’s falling. Maybe gravity knows what it’s doing... Hmm... guess not. Or is it good that it’s in smaller pieces now?” ;D ...

I believe the part about them being there to get the geode (they had a dolly set up already..), but waiting for a signal to start shoving clothes in her bag? Lol... life is beautiful ;D

That should probably be a death sentence.
Sounds like he was saying, "Help me! I need another kidney!"? I don't think that drop-kicking famous comedian Arnold Braunschweiger is a good way to get sponsors for that sort of thing. Probably it moves you further back on the list...

He Tweeted this:
“I only realized I was kicked when I saw the video like all of you. I’m just glad the idiot didn’t interrupt my Snapchat.”

The Washington Post ran with the “Help me! I need a Lamborghini!” line, but their explanation looks like someone on their staff just took social media jokes seriously and ran with it: “A site promoting Johannesburg tourism proudly boasts of the exotic cars of Sandton, which it calls “the richest square mile in Africa,” but according to sales figures from South Africa’s auto manufacturers’ association, Lamborghinis are the rarest brand in the country” ( http://www...says-after-guy-drop-kicks-him/ ).

..so I’m still on #TeamKidney until they interview him and find out otherwise ;)

The nicer ones at least give you a sarcastic pop-up that tells you that you're a bad person if you don't disable but still lets you see the content (Onion and KnowYourMeme both do that). If I get a news site that doesn't let me see the content then I just go to another news site :p

===========

Alabama Public Television says it won't air an episode of the children's show "Arthur" that featured a same-sex marriage.

"Mr. Ratburn and the Special Someone" aired as the premiere for the show's 22nd season on May 13. But not in Alabama.

Programming director Mike McKenzie says Alabama Public Television has no plans to broadcast the episode.

The storyline about Mr. Ratburn's marriage conveys a positive message, he said. But while many parents will find it appropriate, many others will disagree, he said -- "either because their children are too young, or because of their beliefs."

"Our broadcast would take away the choice of parents who feel it is inappropriate," McKenzie told CNN in a statement.

what a dumb comment... not broadcasting protects the choice not to watch it...

The perfect crime! Escape in a licensed vehicle! ;D

@“battery”.. lulz... and “against store policy”? That’s not even true. In most retail places, regular sales associates are told not to pursue (they’re not supposed to leave the store following thieves), not to detain, and sometimes (often?) to not even accuse someone of stealing (they’re usually trained to say things like, “Can I help ring you up for those items?”). But! Security (like the person in the video) and “asset loss prevention” people can do all of the above. Once they got in the vehicle he held back and probably called the police to follow up. Likely all supported by that store’s policy.
