(KSL Staff) SEXY DEERE

There's nothing like a Deere...and apparently one North Dakota high school senior took that to heart and it landed him on our Cutting Room Floor... because he picked up his prom date in a 1992 John Deere 8760 tractor.

Apparently a few people made some wagers that Levi Rue wouldn't follow through... and they lost.

Rue suggested the idea to his date two days before the prom... and as you can imagine she expressed some concerns... mostly about her dress getting dirty.

But after Rue showed her pictures of the tractor and promised it would be immaculate she agreed.

In fact, she wore a lime green prom dress that nearly matched the tractor.

BIBLE QUIZ

If you ever find yourself before a judge and decide to claim to be a church-goer... you'd better be well versed.

A Cincinnati man was arrested this week for using a stolen credit card.

His attorney described him as a church-goer, hoping the judge would set a low bond.

Being a little skeptical, the judge asked the defendant to recite the 23rd Psalm.

He did... all six verses.

In fact, some in the courtroom applauded.

The judge was apparently satisfied and released the defendant on a 10-thousand- dollar bond.

TOOTH SHOP

If you show up for your dentist appointment and find the dentist's office is in a garage... that's a pretty good sign that something's not right.

60 year old Roger Bean was arrested in West Palm Beach, Florida for performing dental work without a license.

He performed denture fittings and made false teeth in his garage, charging just 200- dollars for a full set of dentures, which typically costs more than 2,000-dollars.

And while police weren't amused...neighbors and clients praised Bean for saving them thousands of dollars.

The head of the neighborhood crime watch said Bean's no criminal, saying... "He's helping the old people who don't have a few dollars. I think the world of him."

GERE SMOOCH

An Indian court has ordered the arrest of Hollywood star Richard Gere for kissing Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty at an AIDS campaign event... saying it was an obscene act committed in public.

In fact, Gere's repeated kisses sparked protests throughout India.

Gere could be sent to jail for up to three months, fined or both.

Shetty said the kiss may have gone a "little overboard", but it was not obscene and the protests made India look regressive.

She said Gere was only re-enacting his moves from the film "Shall We Dance" to entertain the audience.
