One day after his release from a county lockup, a California man was arrested after police spotted him wearing a jail-issued t-shirt with the word "PRISONER" printed on its back. When confronted by a cop, Israel Ramirez, 20, said that as he was being released last Wednesday from the Fresno County Jail, he put a Southpole shirt over the jail t-shirt and walked out with the hot threads. "Israel said that he knew the t-shirt belonged to the Fresno County Jail but wanted to take one home because it looked 'cool,'" according to a Fresno County Sheriff's Department report, a copy of which you'll find here. Ramirez, who had previously been locked up on marijuana and child abuse charges, was jailed for possession of stolen property. Ramirez, pictured in the mug shot at right, can be seen below in a police evidence photo snapped after he was pulled over while riding a "chrome 20" bicycle."

If you were Brett Favre would you play football for a coach that looks like "Mr. Noodle" from Sesame Street's Elmo's World?
Then again Favre did for a coach that looked a lot like golfer Craig "The Walrus" Stadler (Holmgren) so who's to judge right? Maybe actor Michael Jeter from "Evening Shade" fame.

You're looking at an official photo of some dumbass named Sony Dong who tried to smuggle 14 songbirds into LAX on a commercial flight from Vietnam. Feds moved in on the guy when they noticed bird feathers and droppings on his socks. When they rolled up his pant legs, feds could barely believe what they saw...
But here's where it gets really sad -- feds had been tracking the guy since December, when they found an abandoned suitcase at LAX, checked by Dong, which contained 18 birds ... five of which were dead.
When they saw that Dong was scheduled to travel to Vietnam in April, they waited for him when he got off the plane -- and swooped in for the bust.
Dong has been charged with three counts of illegally importing wildlife, three counts of importing goods by means of false statement and conspiracy. If convicted, Dong could do up to ten years in a cage of his own.

If you happen to be an exhibitionist, the Happiest Place on Earth just got a little happier -- 'cause Disney is dropping their last line of defense against roller-coaster boobie flashers.
It's all over rides like Splash Mountain -- aka Flash Mountain -- where some people would whip out certain body parts in the hopes that the park camera would catch the nudity ... and then display the naked shot on the photo preview screens for all to see.
Disney had created "image screening positions" to prevent the XXX shots from going public. But now, execs have told the OC Register the screeners have been "redeployed" -- and that they no longer need to monitor the rides because "actual inappropriate behaviors by guests are rare."
But before you run out and bare all, Disney claims they're still going to patrol the park for flashers ... and anyone who tries to turn the place into their own adult Fantasyland will still get a taste of Mickey's size 24.
For the record, Donald still doesn't wear pants.
FOR THOSE OVER 18

A new edition of the Barbie doll is going to come with tattoos that your daughter
(or son... I don't judge) can afix to her.
dolls are part of Mattel’s “Totally Tattoos” range, and include tattoos of hearts, flowers, stars, rabbits, butterflies, and a Barbie silhouette. One tattoo though includes a heart and Ken’s name, and is perfectly sized as a tramp stamp on the lower back.
Not everyone is happy with the move, with one expert claiming that it further sexualizes children’s play. Mattel argues that “This type of open-ended, creative play is a healthy form of self expression that Barbie brings to girls.”
Maybe Barbie is upside down on the mortgage payments for the dream house? Maybe she'll get the Corvette repossessed. Maybe she'll get into an "alternative lifestyle" relationship with Skipper. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
