Woman’s Face-Down Halloween Dummy Gets Repeated 911 Calls
Some passers-by have attempted CPR only to find out it’s a dummy.
DETROIT (AP) — A dummy placed face down in a Detroit woman’s front yard as a Halloween prank has prompted repeated visits by police.
Larethia Haddon says police showed up three times Tuesday, the first day she put the dummy out. The Detroit News reports (http://detne.ws/1LlSWGC ) that police arrived again Wednesday and Haddon notes, “for some reason, it’s getting a lot of attention” this year.
Detroit police Officer Shanelle Williams says officers were called to the home again Thursday, but they determined that it was “just a dummy.”
Haddon says she puts the dummy face down in a different location in her yard every morning and watches the reactions from passers-by as she sips coffee. She says some have attempted CPR and “once they find out it’s a dummy, it’s so hilarious.”
T-Rex Tries American Ninja Course, Is Less Than Dino-mite
Barney could give him a run for his money.
Being extinct didn’t stop a Tyrannosaurus Rex from trying an “American Ninja Warrior”-style obstacle course in Florida, recently.
We knew those short, scrawny arms would hinder him. Dude, you have to evolve.
The man inside the T-Rex (yes, it’s a costume) is Reko Rivera, a human “American Ninja Warrior” contestant.
Burger King’s Halloween Black Whopper Is Causing Green Poop
You might be done with the burger, but the burger’s not done with you.
Burger King is a rainbow of surprises these days.
The company recently unveiled a black Whopper for Halloween, a version of the chain’s signature sandwich served on a dark bun. But people who eat the A.1. Halloween Whopper say it goes in one color… and comes out another.
The company told ABC News that the black bun contains less than 1 percent food dye, and writes in its nutrition facts that the flavorings and food colorings in the bun “are commonly used in the industry and within the safe and Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).”
It does not specify which colors are used, but Medical Daily reports that green dyes are often used in black food coloring.
Whatever the reason, the emerald-hued number twos have unleashed the #GreenPoophashtag:
Not everyone is put off by the goblin-green Halloween side effect. In fact, several customers seem to be looking forward to it:
One note of caution: Use care when scrolling through the #GreenPoop hashtag as some people are posting visual evidence.
