Man Run Over By Deer In McDonald’s Parking Lot 

McDonald’s has provided surveillance video from a store in North Carolina that shows a man being run over by a deer in their parking lot. 

Yes, that’s right. The deer ran over the man, knocking him to the ground. 

The man has shared the video, getting thousands of views. “We were walking out with our Cokes,” he said. “He collided with me, I was down and then back up.” He stated that he was unharmed and he was happy the deer collided with him rather than a child leaving the fast-food restaurant. 

55,000 Duplicate Letters Sent To Cleveland Family 

When an Ohio man was told by his mailman that the letters that were being delivered wouldn’t fit in his mailbox, he was surprised. But he was even more surprised when he learned that he had been sent 79 full bins of letters from a student loan company – the same letter, printed 55,000 times. 

The company has apologized and is working to determine what caused the duplication to occur – and why no one caught the issue as the letters were being printed. 

As for the recipient, he’s had to fit the letters into his garage and is trying to decide how to deal with all of the paper. 

Florida Issues Weather Service Alert For Falling Iguanas 

When the weather gets cold in Florida, residents have more to worry about than being chilly. Local wildlife, specifically iguanas, begin to fall from the trees. 

Iguanas, a cold-blooded creature, literally slow down and stop when they get cold. They lose the ability to hang on so if they are in a tree, they fall, sometimes on unsuspecting pedestrians and cars!

Doctors Find Huge Hairball On Woman’s Ovaries 

A Russian woman surprised her surgeons who discovered that the cysts on her ovaries contained growing hair. 

The 30-year-old woman sought medical care for abdominal pain and doctors diagnosed her with cysts on her ovaries. She underwent surgery and doctors discovered dermoid cysts – which contained hair, skin, bone, and teeth. 

Some of the hair was up to five inches long. 

The surgery was successful and the woman’s reproductive system was left intact. 

Man Burns $1 Million In Cash To Spite Ex-Wife 

A Canadian man has been put in prison for 30 days after he informed a judge that he burned over $1 million Canadian dollars in cash. Why? To get out of paying his ex-wife spousal support and child support. 

The man stated that he started two separate bonfires and burned all of the money. Although he has evidence showing that he withdrew the money from the bank, he does not have proof that he actually burned the money. The judge told the man that he didn’t believe he burned that much money and punished him with jail time for violating court orders. 

He has also been ordered to pay his ex-wife $2,000 a day until he discloses his finances to the court. 

Spotify Releases Playlists For Dogs 

Man’s best friend clearly loves to be around humans – so what is a pup to do when Mom or Dad leaves home and they are left alone? 

Spotify has an answer. 

The music streaming service has launched playlists specifically designed for dogs that are home alone after learning that around 75% of UK pet owners play music for their pets when they leave. The playlists that are being offered are intended to match a pet’s energy level – such as energetic or lazy. Additionally, a podcast has been created with soothing music, “dog-directed praise”, stories, and messages of affirmation and reassurance narrated by actors to alleviate stress for dogs who are home alone.
