    Street Signs For Mullet Place Keep Disappearing

    The hairstyle is short on the top and long in the back, and in Green Bay the mullet has its very own street signs _ at least when the signs haven’t been stolen.

    This is definitely “Only in Wisconsin.” According to Google Maps, the one and only Mullet Place is in Green Bay. I expected to find one in Grand Forks.

                Meet Marijuana Pepsi Sawyer

                BELOIT, Wis. – Police years ago pulled over a young woman who rushed through an amber traffic light. “I’m about to arrest this person right now,” the irritated officer radioed to a dispatcher. “She’s telling me her name is Marijuana Pepsi Jackson.”

                      Ya hey dere…you know it’d be pretty cool if I shot this here bow and arrow thing during our church service…

                      Pastor and church member cited for shooting bow during service

                      A Sheboygan Falls pastor and parishioner were issued municipal citations Thursday for firing an arrow during Sunday’s service as part of a sermon illustration.

                      About 120 people were attending the evening service at Pentecostals of Sheboygan County, 621 Broadway, when the Rev. John Putnam had Jason Wilke, 26, draw and fire a steel-tipped practice arrow across the front of the church.

                      Putnam called it a “teaching tool.”

                      Police call it illegal.

                          How do you prevent underage drinking parties? By telling everyone where the parties are taking place.

                          The West Allis Police Department plans to fight off underage drinking parties by putting up a yard sign where the party is taking place.

                          Appleton arson suspect tells police smoking, cleaning with gasoline don’t mix

                          CHILTON — A 47-year-old Appleton man charged with arson for starting a fire in his apartment that forced 11 neighbors from their homes told police he was just cleaning his apartment.

                          With gasoline. While smoking.

                          Ernest D. Krajniak said the fire started when he tossed his lit cigarette into a pile of gas-soaked clothes and cushions at the building on Appleton’s southeast side.

                          Instead of pulling the building’s fire alarm, he yelled “fire” a couple times before walking to the Menasha Police Department to ask for an ambulance to take him to be treated for burns to his face, arms and back.

                          “Krajniak stated that he wasn’t thinking,” according to a criminal complaint filed Monday by Calumet County Dist. Atty. Ken Kratz.

                              Wisconsin gorilla found in Minnesota

                              :confused2:

                              John Bray is looking for the person who lost a massive gorilla on Blatnik Bridge in Duluth.

                              Bray says he was driving across the bridge Thursday afternoon when a huge stuffed brown stuffed animal flew off the truck in front of him. Bray says it flew up 50 feet and came down in the middle of the road.

                                It missed some gems that this review picked up. My personal favorite is:

                                “College is so not fun because you have to study, like, every five seconds,” she says.

                                  Protip: Don’t chew tobacco while doing a robbery, some of that CSI stuff is actually true

                                  Link

                                  A tobacco chewing habit led to charges against two La Crosse men accused of stealing a safe that was bolted to the floor of a town of Campbell tavern.

                                  A criminal complaint said a DNA profile was developed from a sample taken from the trail of chewing tobacco spit leading away from the Sher-Bear Tavern after the theft Feb. 5.

                                    An apartment rental company wants $2,060 in unpaid rent, late fees and early termination fees from a man. One problem. He can’t pay it because he was murdered…

                                    link

                                    Danielle Eckert’s son Colin Byars was murdered in February. Now the property manager at his old apartment is demanding rent for March and April….saying Colin didn’t give 30 days notice that he would be leaving.

                                    Danielle can’t believe it.

                                    “I said, ‘How is he supposed to send a 30 days notice, when he didn’t even know he was going to get killed?’ ” said Danielle.

                                                    As much as I hate Becky, that’s just effed up. I hope the kid finds his ring sooner rather than later!

                                                        Conan had a great WI joke earlier in the week.

                                                        I’m paraphrasing:

                                                        “President Obama spoke in Green Bay, WI about his plans for health care reform It was an interesting reaction. Half the crowd had never seen a black person before and the other half had never seen a skinny person.”

                                                        :D

                                                            He hit two houses, three vehicles and some small trees as he zigzagged the truck through a neighborhood.

                                                            Officer David Prokopinski ran along side the truck and jumped in the driver’s door, which was partially opened. Prokopinski says the driver tried pushing him out and started speeding up.

                                                              The man, whose age and identity were not available, was taken to an area hospital with burns to his hands and face and his hair was singed, said Shift Commander Joel Daum of the Sheboygan Fire Department.

                                                              The fire was reported about 7 p.m. and when crews arrived they found the garage, behind a house at 2325 S. 14th St. fully in flames. Smoke could be seen for several miles.

                                                              Daum said the man was in the garage and was trying to use a shop vacuum to siphon gasoline from a boat gas tank, “and it must have ignited from a spark.”

They subpoenaed the IP address of the computer from where the mean-spirited emails originated. And they discovered the source of those emails was not a registered sex offender, but in fact came from an internet address registered to her partner on WXOW’s morning news program, Zach Brown. AWKWARD!

Donald Wiessinger, 50, claimed he was not driving drunk on Oct. 14 when he slammed into several parked vehicles, drove over yards and tried to flee from a police officer before crashing into a tree on Madison’s East Side. While it is Wiessinger’s ninth official conviction, it is his 15th conviction overall. State law only counts offenses that occurred in 1989 or after.

                                                                        Link

                                                                        Mayor Ryan McCue said a state of emergency has been declared as fire officials continue to battle a blaze at the Patrick Cudahy meatpacking plant.

                                                                        Fire Chief Dan Mayer said ammonia in the plant that has caused concern throughout the day appears to be contained.

                                                                        “We believe that’s safe now inside,” Mayer said. “From the ammonia standpoint, I’m cautiously optimistic that we have crossed the dangerous period.”

                                                                        Despite the chief’s comments, McCue stressed that the area could still be in danger, and that a mandatory evacuation of area residents was still necessary as the fire raged on for its 14th hour. McCue said he and other officials would re-evaluate the evacuation at 3 p.m.

                                                                        Ammonia can be extremely toxic and may be fatal if inhaled. The federal Emergency Respond Guidebook says ammonia vapors are irritating and corrosive and exposure can cause respiratory difficulties.

                                                                        The city has been evacuating residents from within a one-mile radius of the plant since early Monday, but McCue noted that winds have shifted and more Cudahy residences are being covered with smoke from the large plant. The city’s population is about 19,000.
