    A Connecticut homeowner has been busted for sending her real-estate agent to the hospital - after he unknowingly took a bite of her ginger cake made with pot, cops said.

    Adrian Prevalla, 28, was treated for dizziness and an elevated heart rate after Nancy Glass, 51, allegedly served the pot pie.

    Bob and Joanne Breiner returned to their Gaithersburg, Md., home and found a drunken Goldilocks asleep in their bed.

    A man accidentally went to the Breiners' house after getting off at a bus stop eight miles from his own home, police said, and entered through an unlocked front door.

    Cops in Fargo, ND, pulled off a rare two-for-one DUI arrest.

    While officers were giving a sobriety test to one driver, his pal slid behind the wheel of the pulled-over SUV and drove away. Both wet - and slippery - drivers were booked for DUI.

    A text-messaging elephant is all rangers in Kenya need to stop pachyderm rampages.

    Kimani, a bull elephant, has been fitted with a mobile phone card on his collar that'll keep nearby farmers safe from his raids.

    When the elephant leaves his Ol Pejeta conservancy and threatens to rampage through crops, rangers will get a text message and have enough time to send spotlight-equipped vehicles to scare Kimani away before he gets to farms.

    The US stock market plummeted last week and Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega knows who to blame: God.

    The leftist president, a longtime foe of Washington, said higher powers are punishing America.

    "It's incredible that in the most powerful country in the world, which spends billions of dollars on brutal wars . . . people do not have enough money to stay in their homes," Ortega said. "God is punishing the United States."

    Here's a perfect stress reliever during hard economic times: hurling dinnerware against a wall.

    In San Diego, Sarah's Smash Shack is doing a booming business letting patrons dressed in protective gear vent their frustration by pulverizing plates and glassware.

    It's a bargain, too, $10 for 15 minutes.

    Beautiful writing brings tears to the eyes of Ru Anting.

    The 56-year-old Chinese citizen writes calligraphy with water that he sucks through his nose and shoots through his tear ducts.

    He demonstrated his talent by spraying the Chinese characters Fu Ru Dong Hai - "fortune as vast as the sea" - on paper board.

    Clara Meadmore knows the secret of long life - never bothering with men.

    The 105-year-old Briton was never married, never had a boyfriend and claims to be a virgin.

    "I've had lot of platonic friendships with men, but never felt the need to go further," she said.

    She said she decided to stay a virgin at age 12.

    Tight pants are more than just a crime against fashion in Sudan.

    Police arrested 30 women for wearing figure-hugging pants and short skirts in a crackdown that has enraged the country's government.

    A fed-up Polish priest has gone on strike because his parishioners don't leave enough on the collection plate.

    The Rev. Pitr Lenart is refusing to talk during Mass - instead standing in silence in front of the congregation.

    His protest started after a poor reaction to a request for cash to rebuild the church parking lot.

    "It was only after a while we worked out that he had gone quiet because he was angry with us," said one parishioner.
