Rectum? It coulda killed him

Patrick Stapleton apparently is quite the kidder.

According to Anne Arundel County police, the 22-year-old Stapleton shot a sleeping friend in the buttocks with what he believed was a BB gun.

It turned out to be a .40-caliber handgun.

The shooting happened about 4 a.m. Wednesday in a home in Lothian.

The victim was taken to Prince George's Hospital Center, where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Stapleton, of Ashland, Va., was charged with second-degree assault and reckless endangerment.

Worst bucket list ever

Police said two long-lost friends stole items from a Walmart as part of a "bucket list."

According to the Ocala StarBanner, Andrea Mobley, 36, and Jennifer Denise Morrow, 38, were seen inside a Walmart eating beef jerky and Morrow had concealed some bathing suits in her purse.

When confronted, Morrow said she and Mobley have been friends for 30 years but were separated and had just gotten back together. She said taking the items "was a bucket list thing on our list of things to do together."

Mobley, who was wearing one of the bathing suits beneath her clothing, said putting on the suit was "an impulsive thing," as was eating the beef jerky.

Second Life

A New Zealand parolee on home detention asked to be taken back to prison because he was "sick of playing Xbox" at home.

Police said the 19-year-old man called police as bored and sick of playing video games and would rather serve the rest of his sentence behind bars, according to the New Zealand Herald.

Police said the teen had served 10 months of an 11-month home detention term and with one month to go "had run out of Xbox games to play."

The man got his wish and is now in Ngawha Prison.
