Does your naked wife want fries with that?

Mcdonalds1 Pity Phillip Sherman.

The Fayetteville, Ark., man and Big Mac enthusiast left his cellphone at a McDonald's recently.

So now the guy's got a stomachache AND he's out a cellphone. But wait, it gets worse.

Turns out, Sherms had several pics of his wife -- buck nekkid -- on that camera phone. Someone at the Mickey D's found the shots and uploaded them to the Internets.

(Er, speaking of embarrassment, looks like JLeb and I double-blogged this item. Apologies.)

Jail sex gets inmates charged

Bars A group of inmates in an Indiana jail waited until midnight and then crawled through the ceiling.

But officials say they weren't planning an escape.

Instead, the three men and three women were sneaking back and forth to have sex, drink homemade alcohol and play cards, according to the AP story.

They used a shower drain to pry at the metal ceiling tiles, which were in a spot out of view of cameras.

Sheriff Terry Pierce called the activities "embarrassing. ... If your facility has a flaw, if you house prisoners in it, they will show you. They will find it. We're going to have to find a way to have a better security system."

The nightly romps left the inmates, who range in age from 44 to 17, facing escape charges.

Hometown herpes

Goodrichwrestling York, Pa. You may have heard of it from such things as the rock band Live, delicious chocolate-covered chewy mint candy, your air conditioner, and yours truly.

Add one more to the list: A gnarly outbreak of herpes gladitorum on the York College of Pennsylvania's wrestling mat.

(Disclosure: During my high school years, I swam in the YCP pool. I've never wrestled anyone.)

Three college wrestlers filed a lawsuit against their coaches and the school, alleging the team violated NCAA rules by knowingly letting guys with herpes engage in full-contact practices. The virus spread to the three plaintiffs, and now they want at least $50,000 in damages.

Greasy print does burglar in

MugHere's one more reason to wipe your hands after eating.

A Virginia man was sentenced to six years in prison on Friday for a string of burglaries.

Bernard Wood (left) polished off some chicken before leaving his greasy fingerprints on an orange juice container at a home he burglarized.

He'd steal appliances, tools and jewelry from the homes and then a little something extra for his appetite.

He took nearly 80 bags of popcorn from one home.

Read the full story here.

'Toe-curling pleasure?' Not quite, man says

Nut001 A West Palm Beach sex-drug manufacturer is being sued by a New Jersey lawyer who claims he spent $106 on Vazopren capsules and they didn't live up to the company's promises.

The lawsuit, a copy of which is posted here by Courthouse News Service, alleges Nutrasci Inc. advertised that its pills would create the "ultimate sexual experience," provide its customers with 36 hours of "toe-curling pleasure" and give them the ability to "please their parteners [sic] 2, 3 and even 4 times in a night."

But pro se attorney Harold Hoffman says not exactly.

"Vazopren does not, and lacks capacity to, induce the results promised, advertised and represented," the lawsuit states.

A funky blog color war

Twannahines_021608141edit The Courthouse News Service came through with a nice find in the nation's court dockets today: A New York blogger (FunkyBrownChick.com) is suing a Maryland blogger (FunkyBlackChick.com) over alleged trademark infringement and unfair competition.

"Brown" is run by Twanna Hines (left), who describes herself as a writer and aspiring comedienne who riffs on sex, dating and relationships.

"Black" is written by Yesha Callahan, whose topics range from mundane details about car rides with her son to more personal descriptions of her more sizeable body parts

Both sites are fairly tame (although the Herald's IT filters warned me of mature content on FunkyBrownChick.com), but Hines isn't amused. In her lawsuit, she says the "public confusion has and will continue to cause irreparable harm."

Man too fat for slammer

A Canadian man has an interesting get out of jail card.

Michel Lapointe - a 450-pound drug gang member known as Big Mike - was apparently released before the end of his five year sentence because he was too big for the cell, according to a Reuters story.

(Well, the bed and chair to be exact.)

He didn't get off the hook that easily - it appears she's been in jail since 2006.

The letter discussing his release said: "You have been detained for more than 25 months and your prison conditions are difficult because of your health."
