Man Visiting A Grave Site Is Killed By A Falling Tombstone

Grave1

(PCM) The headline above may sound like some sort of April Fool’s prank, however it is no joke and a Pennsylvania woman is mourning the loss of her beloved husband of 46 years.

74-year old minister Stephen Woytack was kneeling down to place some flowers on the grave of his mother-in-law located in St. Joseph’s Cemetery in Thoop, PA, when suddenly her 300 + lb headstone came toppling down on top of him.

Woytack was pinned fatally beneath the extremely heavy granite slab. Woytack’s wife Lucy, who is still understandably in shock, said that everything happened very quickly. She sought assistance from the cemetery caretaker, but by the time help arrived it was already too late.

The caretaker called the accident “heartbreaking” and claims it was freak occurrence. The coroner goes on to explain that warmer weather in the area may have made the grounds, monument and it’s base unstable causing it to come crashing down.

Woytack was said to have hung a cross on the on the headstone in preparation for Easter just before it toppled over, killing him in the process.

Such a tragic accident and our sincere condolences go out to the Woytack family.

Richard Branson Pranks The Folks Of Branson, Missouri

Branson1

(PCM) April Fools Day may not be for another day, but that did not stop Richard Branson, founder and CEO of Virgin America, from pranking the city of Branson, Missouri. Branson made a post via social media with an announcement that the company would be moving their headquarters to Branson, MO.

The post included a short video that explained the reasons behind the company’s move to the small Missouri town. CNN has since officially confirmed that the move is indeed a joke, however Branson did reveal earlier this month that he had traced his roots back to the town founder Rueben S. Branson and said that he plans to have Virgin offer a flight from San Francisco to Branson, MO.

Even the Branson airport executive got in on the joke and said in a tweet that they are flattered that Richard Branson wants to bring Virgin America to Branson, MO.

The joke continued with Branson claiming that Virgin Hotels was looking to develop a luxury property in the area and they would even begin to offer “exclusive wagon trails”.  He also went on to say a film from Virgin Produced was in the works, as well as, expanded phone coverage in the area through Virgin Mobile and that the water in the town would be filtered using Virgin Pure technology so that he can always have the perfect cup of tea when he is in town.

Branson claimed he spoke with the mayor of Branson and she is “whole-heartedly” behind the plan and even country music superstar Dolly Parton planned to set up camp in the area and they would name one of the planes “Jolene” after her mega-hit single.

Gotcha, Branson, MO!  Wonder if they could find a way to prank him back?

Haven’t You Always Wanted To Wear A Big Mac?

Big-Mac-clothes

(PCM) I think we have discovered the most bizarre fashion line ever created now that McDonald’s has revealed their line of wearable high fashion Big Macs.

At first we assumed this had to be some kind of joke, but trust us, it is absolutely legit. The new clothing and lifestyle line features everything from raincoats and thermals to bed sheets and wallpaper printed with a recurring image of a Big Mac sandwich on an all-white background. It is definitely a bit on the odd side.

The new line of products made their debut in Sweden last week and all profits with benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities. The items are currently not offered outside of Sweden at this time, but there are plans to open up the items to more countries soon. You can check out the clothing line here!

According to the NY Daily News, the new and somewhat strange items are part of McDonald’s new “imlovinit 24″ campaign.   The campaign features 24-McDonald’s themed stunts that take place in 24 different cities around the globe in a 24 hour time period.

Allegedly Drunk Florida Men Post Video With Endangered Owl And Claim They’re Going To Eat It

Owl-drunk

(PCM) After a video surfaced online with two men driving through West Palm Beach, Florida holding a federally protected owl on their laps, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission has launched an investigation into the incident.

In the video, a Great-Horned Owl can be seen in the vehicle with the two men. It was posted to Facebook on March 16th and the comment attached to the video read “3am in the morning we are drunk and we are high. We bout to take this thing home and eat it up just found it on the road.”

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission are investigating the video and claim that also in the video you can see one of the two men pick up a bottle, presumably alcohol, drink it while they talk about being drunk or high. The Commission says that the type of owl is actually extremely dangerous and is protected by both Federal and State law.

The two men, if caught, could be facing felony charges for even having the owl in their possession, let alone if any harm actually came to the animal. Everyone wants to know where the owl is now and that it is safe. State officials claim they were able to make contact with the man in the video and he informed them that he and his friend had let the owl go the next day.

The owl may have been injured initially after being hit by a car and official still worry that it could be out there somewhere wandering around still injured.

Utah Bill Permits Execution By Firing Squad

Firing-squad1

(PCM) Execution by firing squad is a cause of death that one would have assumed has not been practiced in a good number of years, however there is still an active bill in the state of Utah that permits this particular style of execution.

The state of Utah previously banned firing squad executions back in 2004, however the last one that occurred on record in the state was only back in 2010. Utah Governor Gary R. Herbert just recently approved a bill to bring back execution by firing squad only in the event that proper drugs for a lethal injection can not be obtained.

In a statement, a spokesperson for Herbert explains the decision by saying “We regret anyone ever commits the heinous crime of aggravated murder to merit the death penalty and we prefer to use our primary method of lethal injection when such a sentence is issued. However, when a jury makes the decision and a judge signs a death warrant, enforcing that lawful decision is the obligation of the executive branch.”

It seems that there is currently a nationwide shortage of lethal injection drugs, so that is another reason why Gov. Herbert has approved the firing squad bill despite it being a both outdated and quite gruesome. The firing squad execution would only come into play if the prison could not obtain the lethal injection drugs 30 days prior to the scheduled execution date for the inmate.

Fake Gun Store Set Up As A Way To Prevent Gun Violence

Guns-PSA1

(PCM) A fake gun shop was set up in New York City last week by a group called States United to Prevent Gun Violence. The group feels very strongly about their stance on the importance of teaching people gun safety and filmed a PSA inside the fake gun shop with unsuspecting customers.

The fake shop was stocked to the brim with over 100 realistic looking prop guns, as well as, hidden camera and an actor playing the salesman. The actor who portrayed the salesman told the would-be gun buyers so pretty horrific stories about specific crimes that each of the certain types of guns had be involved with in the past. The actor/salesman included stories about homicides, suicides, accidental shootings and more.

The fake stores main target was first time gun buyer and it was set up for two days while the social experiment was conducted. The group sales that they felt there was a need to film the PSA, as many people in this country feel that keeping a firearm in the home somehow makes that home a safer place. However, studies contradict those opinions and show that there is more increased risk of death or injury by actually having the firearm in the house.

You can watch the States United to Prevent Gun Violence PSA below, which now has over 3 million views on YouTube:
