--On Friday morning, North Albany Academy elementary school in Albany, New York was holding a school assembly. It wasn't open to parents, but 24-year-old Aydrea Meaders showed up anyway. Her kid goes to the school.
--Aydrea went up on stage, where there was some music and dancing. According to a school official, she, quote, "wasn't an expected part of the routine, but she wasn't doing anything inappropriate."
--Until she WAS. Quote, "Suddenly, she threw off her coat and stripped from the waist up." Staff members rushed her to stop her TOPLESS DANCE in front of the school and got her off the stage. Then they called the police.
--She was charged with seven counts of endangering the welfare of a child, and one count of public lewdness. No one is quite sure WHY she decided to dance topless at her kid's school . . . and she hasn't given an explanation.

Last week, 32-year-old Dan Drobac of Eagan, Minnesota recorded a University of Minnesota men's basketball game. Based on the schedule, it must've been the game last Tuesday between Minnesota and the University of Nebraska.
By Friday, he STILL hadn't gotten around to watching . . . and, somehow, he'd still avoided spoilers. Until a utility worker outside his house started listening to a sports-talk radio show, where the hosts mentioned the game's outcome. And Dan heard it.
So he responded by threatening to KILL the worker . . . then barricaded himself inside his house. A SWAT team had to be called in, and the cops eventually went inside . . . but they didn't find any guns. Dan's been charged with felony terroristic threats.
By the way, Minnesota beat Nebraska 84-to-65. Let's hope that didn't spoil it for you. And if it did, please refrain from causing a police standoff.

Police in Florida arrested a man on a theft charge after he allegedly stole an ice cream sandwich by concealing it in his pants. Fort Pierce police said an assistant manager at the Family Dollar store saw a man take something from a cooler and leave the store without paying on October 12th. As he walked "he removed an ice cream sandwich from the front of his pants and began eating it," the arrest report states. "He then entered the Dollar Tree and came out a few minutes later with a drink and then began to walk west on Georgia Avenue." Police found Robert Silva, 32, while he was walking with a beverage. He told officers he stole the ice cream treat because his car had blown a tire near the store and he was only carrying $3. Silva, who said he was "sorry," was arrested on a charge of misdemeanor theft.
Chinese ship builders, who launched a $2.6 million yacht, only to watch it sink like a block of concrete when it entered the water. During its unveiling ceremony, the SS Jiugang was launched to sea amid much fanfare. But, in a strange turn of events, the vessel immediately sank as it entered the water, becoming hopelessly submerged in the Yellow River. Officials have pulled the boat out of the water and brought it in for repair. No official word on the cause of the sinking. We're thinking someone must have left the screen door open.

Normally we ignore the pigs at the Westboro Baptist Church, since their protests at funerals are just lame publicity stunts. But this time we can all laugh in their hypocritical faces. After STEVE JOBS passed away on Wednesday, a tweet was posted by Margie Phelps, one of the leaders of the church. Her father is Fred Phelps, the group's leader.Margie announced that, quote, "Westboro will picket [Steve Jobs'] funeral. He had a huge platform, gave God no glory and taught sin."And now, for the irony . . . underneath her tweet, it shows that she posted it using TWITTER FOR iPHONE. That's right. She's protesting Jobs' funeral even though she clearly uses his products.Which just goes to show that these people don't REALLY care about anything other than getting attention. If they truly resented Jobs, they wouldn't buy Apple products. But they do. Because they're hypocrites . . . and morons.After the Internet exploded yesterday, laughing at her, Margie tweeted that the iPhone wasn't created by Jobs . . . it was created by God. Which is a pretty stupid thing to say in its own right.

Cuffed Kid Turns Self In
Police in Indiana say a teenager walked into their station with handcuffs on his wrists and told them he was wanted on a warrant. Indiana State Police at the Lowell Post said Zachary Keilman, 18, of Rensselaer, walked into the post about 2 p.m. Thursday and told Sgt. Alan Jamerson he believed there was a warrant for his arrest. Keilman rolled up the sleeves of his shirt and showed Jamerson there were handcuffs on his wrists with the middle chain cut. Keilman said he had been detained by a Newton County sheriff's deputy while attending a party with alleged underage drinking and had escaped the deputy's car while other partygoers were being questioned. He later realized he had left his identification in the deputy's car. Keilman, who was taken to jail and released on bond Friday, faces a felony count of escape and a misdemeanor count of resisting law enforcement.
Obama Fried Chicken Restaurant Opens In China
China obviously doesn't think much of President Barack Obama. Beijing has opened an Obama Fried Chicken restaurant - as in OFC. The logo looks like the President dressed in Colonel Sanders's clothes. The catchphrase underneath says: "We're so cool, aren't we?" The Obama Fried Chicken could be a response to the U.S. filing a complaint with the World Trade Organization about Chinese tariffs on American chicken exports.
