RICHFIELD, Wis., June 23 (UPI) -- Police in Wisconsin said they arrested a man who drunkenly tried to drive 40 miles home in a pilfered golf cart after being ditched by a group of "uncles."
Al Gore has rushed to Wisconsin to give this man his fuel-efficient driver of the year award.
LONDON (Reuters) - Portuguese teen-ager Michelle Larcher De Brito swept silently into the second round at Wimbledon Monday and then defiantly refused to stop screeching if her matches get tougher. The 16-year-old made headlines at the French Open when she wailed and screeched so loudly on court that her opponent complained to the umpire.
Watch. They'll give her a record contract.

WAIPOPO, New Zealand, June 22 (UPI) -- New Zealand authorities said they freed a man stuck like "Winnie-the-Pooh" in his electric dryer while trying to retrieve a pair of underpants. Senior Constable Greg Sutherland of the Temuka police said a police officer, an ambulance and two fire crews were sent to the Waipopo home about 6:30 p.m. Sunday after the 42-year-old man's head, arms and shoulders became stuck in the dryer while he was trying to retrieve a pair of underwear from the back of the appliance, The Timaru (New Zealand) Herald reported Monday.
The question before the house is, how did he get his shoulders in, but not get them out? We will read all theories.
