Copy-a-cat dog gets caught in a tight spot

This dog had to be freed by firefighters after getting, quite literally, caught in a flap.
The paw dog – who measures more than 5ft tall on his hind legs – was having a good time trying to imitate his owner's pet kittens.
The 14-month-old mutt, named Moses Chan, was playing with the four cats in the garden while his owner went to the shops.
The pusses passed easily through the cat-flap, coming and going as they pleased.
Big Mo couldn't get a handle on the situation, and plunged himself through the door – getting his head stuck.
Owner Lisa Saberi, 29, said: "He seems to think he's a cat.
"He's always playing with them and tries to eat their food if I’m not watching."
It took 45 minutes for the firemen to rescue Moses by drilling holes around the plastic flap.
Talk about being a copycat!

Groundskeeper finds face in log

A sawed-off tree limb at a Maryville cemetery turned out to have a mysterious image. The short log has a cut end bearing an uncanny resemblance to a human face.
Ernest Ward, a groundskeeper at Magnolia Cemetery, said it was found Monday as he and co-workers cleaned up debris from a weekend storm.
He said a former worker at the cemetery believes the face is a spirit. "Who he is, I don't know," Ward said.

How stupid they think I am if this true why is it flat on the bottom with a perfect portion face placed in the center.

Cow collect its farts in a plastic tank

Scientists are examining cow farts and burps in a novel bid to combat global warming. Experts said the slow digestive system of cows makes them a key producer of methane, a potent greenhouse gas that gets far less public attention than carbon dioxide. To understand the impact of the gas produced by cows on global warming, scientists collected gas from their stomachs in plastic tanks attached to their backs.

Small Bits of News You Didn’t Know you Needed

When you go to jail you shouldn’t get feed quality foods
Inmates at one central Florida jail won't be eating quite as well thanks to budget cuts. Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd announced Wednesday that inmates will no longer get chocolate milk, coffee and juice as he strives to cut $200,000 from the jail budget.
Guests of the county will also get frozen egg patties for breakfast instead of fresh eggs and just one piece of bread instead of two. Peanut butter-and-jelly sandwiches are also off the menu and fresh milk will give way to the powdered stuff. The jail has already substituted crackers for cornbread. Jail officials made the changes with the help of a dietitian. Judd says if inmates want fancier fare, "they need to behave, quit violating the law, and stay out of the county jail."

Ark. suspect leaves behind cell phone for police
Forrest City police weren't able to catch their man after a high-speed chase through town, but the cell phone he left behind gave away his identity.
The chase started just before 11 p.m. Monday after officers received a call about people "fighting in the street with guns," police said. When police arrived, they managed to block one car from getting away. The man in that car spoke briefly with officers before speeding away - and the chase was on.
The man crashed his Toyota Camry into a house and ran away, police said. But as officers searched the car, the man's cell phone rang and the caller asked for the suspect by name.
Officers said a search of the car uncovered a set of scales and two plastic bags, one containing marijuana and the other containing crack cocaine.
Police declined to name the man Tuesday but said they were still searching for him.
