I got lost once at the zoo when I was a kid so I recall how awful that feeling can be so I won't pick on anybody in this one. It does remind of an episode of the Simpsons when they were throwing Lisa up above the corn to try and see where they were.

A Massachusetts couple with two young kids has trouble navigating through a corn maze, so they call 911 for help. It took a police officer and his K-9 about 10 minutes to find them in Danvers, Mass. spread. (Oct. 12)

It Must Be Halloween

This Halloween display in North Carolina prompted a call to 911. Thankfully somebody else called in and let them know that it was just a Halloween display. How many times in the south would you see a man with a beer in his hand trapped underneath a riding lawnmower? Scratch that.

Her Finger Nails Are 18 Years Old

As records go, this one is a nail-biter.

A Las Vegas singer stepped out in New York yesterday as the proud owner of the longest fingernails in the world.

Chris "The Dutchess" Walton made it into the 2012 Guinness Book of World Records for the first time for having nearly 20 feet of nails on both hands.

"It's kind of like a body part that I was born with, now I don't know what I would do without them," the 45-year-old said.

"I'm pretty sure one day I will cut them, but I can't see it in my head because I'm so used to having them.

"It's like a leg, I wouldn't just chop it off so it's gonna take some thinking."

"The Duchess," a mother of six girls and grandmother of three, says she started growing her nails 18 years ago by accident.

Now the nail on her ring finger is the length of the average human arm, her left pinky nail is almost the height of a New York City fire hydrant, and the middle fingernail on her left hand is as long as two Nathan's hot dogs.

It's been awhile since I have seen a good sign spoofing. Usually you might see something to do with zombies which personally scares the hell out of me but "Rogue Panda on Rampage" would be interesting enough. This one was caught on Highway 180 in Flagstaff, Ariz. Officials want everyone to know that there is no said Panda an all is fine.

Five Hundred Year Old Vampire Attacks Woman

Another vampire story. I was beginning to think that all of the vampires have gone underground. Enter Lyle Monroe Bensley. A self proclaimed 500 year old vampire from Texas. At least he had the decency to warn police that he needed to feed and that he needed to be restrained. Isn't the sun usually up by 7 a.m.?

Texas – A 19-year-old Texas man broke into a woman's apartment and attacked her while screaming about being a vampire, police said.

Lyle Monroe Bensley, of Galveston, Tex., slipped into the woman's bedroom early Saturday and made growling and hissing noises while biting her neck and hitting her, the Houston Chronicle reported.

The tattooed freak, clad only in a pair of boxer shorts, then dragged the woman out of the apartment before she broke free and jumped into the car of a passing neighbor, police told the paper.

Cops who responded to the scene at around 7 a.m. found the gothic goon screaming and growling in the building's parking lot and arrested him, the Chronicle reported.

"He was begging us to restrain him because he didn't want to kill us," Galveston Officer Daniel Erickson said. "He said he needed to feed."

Erickson said Bensley was babbling about his bloodsucking bona fides on the way to the lockup.

"I'm a vampire, and I've been alive for over 500 years," Bensley shouted, according to Erickson.
