- Yes, Wisconsin is a strange, strange state. Case in point:
KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) Three children are safe with their mom in Illinois after their father was shot and killed during a confrontation with police in Wisconsin. Sergeant Ron Bartholomew said officers yesterday shot 31-year- old Bobby Sherrod, who was naked on a street in Kenosha. Sherrod had his three children naked with him. Officials saw him twist his five-year-old son's neck and when he tried to grab his other children officers shot him. His other children are three years and 14 months old.
Bartholomew says the five-year-old told officers his dad had an argument with his girlfriend, smoked marijuana, drank shampoo and poured water over his children before taking all three naked into the street. [CBS2 News Chicago]
- When life hands you SPAM™ and mushrooms, make stroganoff. This morning on Chicagoist:
"...[A] truck, which was carrying Spam and mushrooms (no, we're not making this up), toppled while negotiating a ramp from the inbound Stevenson to the inbound Dan Ryan Expressways. The wreckage initially blocked the ramp, but crews have cleared the truck and its delicious cargo enough for traffic to inch through.
Meanwhile, Chicagoist would like to suggest that cleanup crews consider this recipe for "Spam Stroganoff," from the recipe search function of the Spam Web site, which features both Hormel's favorite spiced ham product and mushrooms. However, we don't even want to think about the delights that could spring from the combination of Spam, mushrooms and the waste of that milk truck accident we told you about earlier this month.
