MORNING HEADLINES: A day full of "oopsies"

Posted on Fri, Nov 12, 2010 at 9:49 AM

And you thought you were having a bad day — A CdA demolition firm was supposed to topple a smokestack in Ohio. Well, they actually did manage to knock it over, it just fell over the wrong way, breaking stuff and knocking out power to 4,000 people. (AP)

Idaho admits it's part of the U.S. — Idaho officials say too many of its citizens are obese. Nobody tell that dude that's eating nothing but potatoes for two months. (Magic Valley Times-News)

Attack of the killer bedbugs — Idaho residents are now cohabiting with bedbugs, so prepare yourselves, Spokanites. Also, I totally call dibs on the movie rights to Attack of the Killer Bedbugs. (KHQ)

Almost as old as John McCain — Willie Earthman is a mind-boggling 102 years old. She's older than the refrigerator. And zippers. (Spokesman)

That's one way to do it — A Spokane Valley man foiled an attempted robbery by shutting the door on the would-be bandits. Though, to be fair to the (pathetic) attempted thieves, the guy did set the dead bolt. And windows are made of glass. What else could they have done but run away? (KREM)

It's nice to see a valiant effort at a fun headline — After you rob a motel, it really doesn't matter what the name of the bar is that you try to hide in. The important thing is to not go to the bar next door to the motel you just robbed. (KLEW)
