Chinese Woman Moves Into A 24-Hour KFC For A Week!


(PCM) A 26-year old Chinese woman by the name of Tan Chen recently went through quite a tragic relationship split and did what many of us only wish we could do … stuff ourselves full of delicious KFC fried chicken and escape the pain for about week.

After the break-up Chen reported in sick for her job and while walking around town trying to get her mind off the split, she decided to go into a local KFC in the train station of China’s Sichuan Peninsula. Chen ended up staying at the restaurant for an entire week!

She claims that she initially had not planned on being at the establishment for so long, as she had only wanted to grab some chicken wings. However, once she was inside and began eating, she reached the conclusion that she also needed some time to think.

It took three days before a KFC employee took notice that Chen had not left the restaurant, as they are a 24-hour establishment and work in shifts. They were unable to ask her to leave since she was technically a paying customer. The employee did check to make sure that Chen was okay, and she again told them she just needed some time to think and then proceeded to order another box of chicken wings and an extra large fries.

Once Chen began to become noticed by the local media she decided it was time to move on from the restaurant. She claims she was tiring of the taste of chicken and made the decision to leave the city and return to her parents home.

We certainly can’t argue with Chen’s reasoning for staying in the restaurant so long as she sadly admitted that her apartment in the city was full of painful reminders of the failed romantic relationship.

Woman Becomes Trapped in Chimney After Stalking Online Date

CrazyChimneyLady(PCM) Once seen as a dangerous and dubious way to try and find your soul mate, online dating has now become the norm, steadily replacing speed dating, bars, and other face-to-face approaches to dating. Yet, even with its increasing use and acceptance, some nuts still fall through the cracks and make everyone question how safe it is to date online.

One unlucky online dater found himself asking that same question after a woman he began dating after meeting her online was caught trying to enter his home through his chimney on Sunday.

Genoveva Nunez-Figueroa, a 30-year-old Southern California resident, was found in the chimney by Ventura County urban search and rescue team after the resident, who wished to remain anonymous, called the fire department at 5:45 a.m. and reported that someone had been stuck in his chimney for two hours.

After using jackhammers were used to dismantle the chimney brick by brick, firefighters had to use dish soap to lubricate the chimney flue and pull Nunez-Figueroa out by 8:22 a.m., where she was then transported to Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center for evaluation; her condition is not immediately known.

Captain Mike Lindbery, the Public Information Officer of the Ventura County Fire Department, posted pictures and gave real-time updates on twitter from the “entrapment call,” giving his over 1,000 followers a drama filled timeline.

The homeowner told local news station KTLA that he broke off his relationship with Nunez-Figueroa after he spotted her on his roof two weeks before the chimney accident. She has been arrested and charged with illegally entering a residence and providing false information to a peace officer, according to a news release from the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department.

Speaking to KTLA, the homeowner warned others about the potential dangers of online dating and letting stangers into your home saying, “Before you have somebody come in your house really check them out … really give it some time before you let somebody in, because they might want to stay.”

The Mysterious Case Of The Crisco Crook!


(PCM) An incredibly bizarre burglary recently took place in St. Petersberg, Florida where approximately 18 tons of Crisco shortening sticks were stolen from a tractor trailer.

The tractor trailer was on its’ way to a Publix supermarket distribution center in Lakeland, Fl and was reported missing on Sunday morning. The truck was eventually recovered, however all of the Crisco was missing.

The 2005 red Volvo was stolen from a lot called Coast Towing and another tractor trailer containing shipments was also burglarized. Authorities claim that a few boxes were opened but did not specify the monetary value or what items were taken.

So far there are no suspects and there has been no arrests in this case and of course the 18 tons of Crisco are still missing!

Missing Parrot Returns Home Four Years Later Speaking Spanish!


(PCM) Nigel, the African grey parrot, had been missing from his home in Torrence, CA for nearly four years, but recently returned and appears to have had quite the adventure during his time away.

Nigel was owned by a British man by the name of Darren Chick and even adopted Chicks’ British accent over time. Parrots are well known to be mimics of human speech and will often begin to sound like their owners.

Nigel went missing about four years and was only discovered to belong to Chick after a veterinarian found him while searching for her own missing bird. The veterinarian was contacted by the owner of a local dog spa who found the bird outside of her business.

She caught the bird and placed him in a cage, it was at this time that they discovered that the bird spoke a few words of Spanish and was obviously around someone named Larry during his time away. All traces of his British accent were gone.

It turns out that Nigel was microchipped and veterinarian was able to track down Nigel’s original owner, Mr. Chick. Chick recognized Nigel right away and despite the fact that Nigel gave Chick a little nip when he was first picked up, but they are happy to be reunited at home at long last.

We assume that Nigel’s little four year adventure will always remain a mystery!
