Burglar Gets His Pants Pulled Down By A Fence During His Escape

A man in Arizona learned a valuable lesson about jumping spiked fences in baggy pants. Michelle Valenzuela, with the communications department of the Tucson Unified School District, said the incident happened around 10:30 a.m. Friday at Miles-Exploratory Learning Center on East Broadway Boulevard. According to a safety report, a locksmith working at the school spotted a man trying to get into a couple of rooms. When the man saw the locksmith he ran and tried to jump back over the school’s spiked fence. The suspect didn’t quite make the leap, his pants got caught and he was left hanging upside down with his underwear showing. That’s when Jesse Sensibar and Kristin Woodall were passing by. They snapped a photo and shared the story on Facebook.

March 27th, 1979 - Eric Clapton

Eric Clapton married George Harrison's ex-wife, Patti Boyd in Tucson, Arizona. George attended the wedding as did Ringo and Paul. BTW, she must have really have had some magic because George Harrison wrote the song “Something” for her, and Clapton wrote the song “Layla” for her !!

This might be the greatest all-star collection of talent to ever jam on a song. Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Joe Cocker singing back up, and what looks like Vladimir Putin rockin’ the tambourine.

Bull Gores 11-Inch Horn Up Matador’s Butt

This past Monday, Antonio Romero was horrifically gored during a bout with the furious beast in Mexico City. The matador ended up with the bull’s horn some 11 inches up his rectum, causing “severe” injuries. At first Romero appeared to be in control as he goads the animal with a red cloth, called a muleta. But something goes wrong as he tries to get the bull to pivot around him. The angry beast rears up, catching him on the arm and knocking him off balance. As Romero stumbles back in an effort to avoid the bull’s deadly horns, the animal throws off the muleta and homes in on its helpless target. Now, with its tormentor in its sights, the bull takes its terrible revenge. It mercilessly attacks him, digging in its horns and rolling him across the ground. The goring only ends when other bullfighters come to their colleague’s aid and distract the animal. Romero reportedly was rushed to the hospital for urgent treatment of horrific injuries to his rectal area. It is not known if he has been discharged yet.
