A Little Friday File Fun

And now it's time for FRIDAY FILES!

In Kansas City, Missouri, a woman woke up feeling discomfort in her ear. She told local station WDAF-TV she went to her doctor to find out what was wrong. A medical assistant looked into her ear and thought there was an insect in it. It turns out it was a brown recluse spider, a species with a bite that can cause stinging pain and severe lesions that require medical attention. Fortunately, a doctor was able to remove it, and it did not bite the woman. However, she says she now puts cotton balls in her ears at night.


In Hudson, Florida, a man called 911, and when police arrived on to his residence, they found a machete in the yard that reportedly belonged to his friend, according to local station WTVT. The friend reportedly took a BM in the man’s toilet and didn’t appreciate it when the resident had to remind him to flush it. The “friend” threatened to chop the man with a machete. Pasco County sheriff’s deputies arrested the suspect on a felony aggravated assault charge.


In Rochester, New Hampshire, a woman is fighting the state Department of Motor Vehicles over her 15-year-old vanity license plate showing a common parental phrase. Seacoastonline.com reports the woman has been asked to surrender the plate, which reads “PB4WEGO.” The state says phrases related to excretory acts aren’t permitted.
