At least the goat pooped before getting into the cop car

It's been a while since I've shared a chuckle. But, I just found this gem that brought a much-needed belly-laugh. It feels a little wrong to post it right after a tribute to Lucille Ball, but I think she'd get a kick out of it.

According to MSNBC, Portland police butted into a kidnapping and kept the crooks from getting someone's goat. The goat-grabbers got away, but the kid's all good.

Bonus quotes:
"We come out and there's one guy inside the fence handing over this little goat right here to two other men on the other side of the fence."

"They're like 'oh, we're just gonna take it to a party - we'll bring it back by the morning' and we're just like, 'no you aren't.'"

Don't worry, the goat used the dime from her nanny to call the cops. She's no longer on the lam.

Believe it or don't. Read to the bottom line of the story for the punchline.

Here's the linky-thing: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/44243081/ns/local_news-portland_or/

You got some 'splainin' to do!

The late, great Lucille Ball would have turned 100 Saturday. I know this isn't odd news, but we at "Stranger Than Fiction" think it's a good time to pay tribute to one of the great talents of our time.

From the Vitameatavegimin foibles to the cow in the boiler and hawking beef out of a baby carriage, she defined physical comedy and wore it with grace - on and off the screen.

So, here is a collection of previously unpublished photos of Lucy, courtesy of life.com.


Thanks for the laughs, Red.
