Just When You Thought You Heard It All News (11-23-2013)

I think everybody has at least 1 crazy ex. Some are crazier than others. A friend of mine once told me a story about an ex-girlfriend who tattooed his name on her forehead in capital letters "SHAWN". But the thing is, he spells it SEAN. Let that be a lesson to all of you stalkers. If you absolutely have to have a forehead tat, make sure you spell the name right. The following story is about another scorned, crazy, nut ball.
After her boyfriend of three years, Ryan Boyd, broke up with her, this 22-year-old from Austin allegedly didn't waste any time unleashing her inner crazy. Boyd's phone records show McClain called him up to 750 times a day and sent between 20 - 100 daily text messages, threatening to make his life miserable.
She also sent him some blank text messages. You know, just to show that she was thinking about him.
It wasn't until three months after the break-up, though, that police say McClain really took things to the next level. In November 2012, she allegedly drove to the home of Boyd's mother and ran over the woman with her car. Thankfully she survived.

Ordinarily I'd make a clever comment about this woman having a prison named after her because she spends so much time behind bars. Or having a custom made cell with a revolving door made just for her. But this time I'll take the high road, and I will not write that if ugly was a felony she would have been locked up twice as many times. Oops!!

Shermain Miles has seen the inside of a prison cell a total of 396 times! Now after her latest release from prison, where she served a year for assaulting a city alderman, Miles has taken a vow that she plans on sticking to: no drinking, drugging, and — hands-down — no more arrests! Miles swears she is on a new path toward making positive life changes, so that she is never arrested again.

Over the years, Shermain Miles, 51, was arrested 65 times for disorderly conduct and 59 times for crimes related to prostitution, among other things. She has used at least 83 different aliases and is well known among merchants and residents in several neighborhoods on Chicago’s North Side. One florist called police about her 25 times last summer.

Miles’ rap sheet roots were established in 1978, and according to her, drinking was the cause of all her arrests. The 52-year-old says that the drinking transformed her into a “monster,” fueling her spirit in a bad way and resulting in her committing crimes. WOW!

My Grandmother once told me that it takes all kinds of people to make a world. But some how I don't think that Grandma had any idea how many different kinds of crazy people there really are.

 A South Carolina man who stored his severed leg in a barbecue smoker, (what a genius!) that was later auctioned off is locked in a custody dispute with the North Carolina man who found it. 

John Wood's leg was amputated near the knee after a 2004 airplane crash. He asked doctors to give it to him so he could be buried as a whole man when he died.

The limb, which Wood had kept in the smoker in a storage facility after he lost his home, was bought by Shannon Whisnant last Tuesday in an auction held by the storage company because Wood had missed his monthly payments 

Whisnant initially gave it to police, who subsequently turned it over to a funeral home when it became clear it was not the result of foul play.

But Whisnant, who put a sign on the empty smoker charging adults $3 and children $1 for a look, now wants the leg back.

"He's making a freak show out of it," Wood told the local media. "He wants to put money in his pocket with this thing."

In my opinion only a freak would keep his severed leg in a smoker. Or keep his severed leg at all. It's a good thing that nobody decided to smoke anything.

Whisnant, who was unsuccessful in his bid to get the leg from the funeral home, consulted with a lawyer and decided his best move was to persuade Wood to share custody and profits.

"It's a strange incident, and Halloween's just around the corner," Whisnant said. "The price will be going up if I get (a stake in) the leg."

Wood, who is heading to Maiden to pick up his leg, said the two men can meet, but he is not interested in using the leg to make money.

"I just think it's despicable," he said. "I don't mind having the 15 minutes of fame, but I'm not looking to really profit off this thing."
