When a headline reads, "giant rabbits invade North Korea!"...it's going to get your attention.
So we picked up this story off the cutting room floor and decided to pass it along.
Imagine cocker spaniels hopping all over the place... only they're not dogs... they're rabbits.
A German breeder believes his rabbits could be the answer to North Korea's hunger problems.
Because they can grow to weigh as much as 23 pounds.
So, North Korean diplomats personally drove out to his farm to see the behemoth bunnies for themselves.
They bought four females and two males to start a pilot program.
One rabbit produces some 15 pounds of meat.
A thief is on the loose after ripping off a masseuse.
He didn't get away with cash... instead... he's been spa hopping to more than 20 northern Illinois spas, ordering pedicures, manicures, facials...and then ditching the spa before paying.
Police say he's received thousands of dollars in services without paying.
At one stop, the 300-pound thief got a full body scrub, facial, and a manicure and pedicure treatments that lasted 3 and a half hours.
The technicians says, "I just want to look at him, like 'You jerk, you didn't even tip me. You made me rub your gross feet and listen to you for an hour and a half".
HAND ME DOWN
Giving someone a hand takes on a whole new meaning in this next story.
A doctor pleaded guilty on Thursday to stealing a severed hand, which he gave to a stripper who displayed it in her New Jersey apartment.
Ahmed Rashed, who now practices medicine in L-A, faces five years probation for stealing the hand in 2002 from a cadaver at a New Jersey medical school.
The woman kept the hand in a jar of formaldehyde where it was discovered by police during an unrelated investigation.
