A 66-year old woman from Nebraska is suing all gay people, because she thinks homosexuality is a sin, and she wants the law to finally acknowledge it.
Also because she is out of her mind.
Sylvia Driskell filed the lawsuit on May 1 with U.S. District Court of Omaha, and in a handwritten, 7-page document she lists herself as the “ambassador” for the plaintiffs “God and his son, Jesus Christ.”
The defendants are listed as simply “homosexuals” – presumably, every single one of them – which would make for quite a full courtroom.

"I think in their immaturity they kind of think it's a sort of a cowboy type of thing but then to have parents that support it and feed into it and to explain that it borders on racism is really upsetting to me,"
Customs agents at JFK international airport found themselves looking at this scene during a physical search after Jamaican resident Romario Lewis acted fishy. Sticking drugs (in this case $19,000 in coke) where the sun doesn't shine just isn't in vogue these days, apparently.
From what we can tell, the hoop monster in question was a part of Seattle's May Day protests. Or at the very least, he was using the day as a chance to go all Monstars on the hoop. The Seattle Police Department had a good sense of humor about it at least:
