A Utah woman who found out her daughter was teasing a schoolmate about her clothes said she taught the girl a lesson using clothing from a thrift shop.

The Murray woman, identified only as Ally to protect the identity of the girl, Kaylee, said she devised the punishment for the elementary school student after receiving an email from the girl's teacher saying Kaylee had been bullying another girl, KSTU-TV, Salt Lake City, reported Tuesday.

"She would take her out on the playground and call her names, and tell her she was a slob and tell her she dressed like a sleaze," Ally said. "Someone not wanting to go to school anymore based off of something that one other little person said to them -- I mean, that's huge, that's damaging."

U.S. software giant Microsoft has added "Klingon" to its Bing translator to celebrate this week's release of "Star Trek: Into Darkness."

The search engine partnered with Marc Okrand, the creator of the fictional language, to add the alien tongue to the translation tool, The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.

Selecting Klingon on Bing causes a line to pop up indicating partnerships with Paramount and the non-profit Klingon Language Institute.

A Canadian farm owner says horse-riding goats are a common sight on her farm.

Angie Power's horse-riding pygmy goats were recently featured riding her Arabian horse in a video put out by Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism, CBC News reported.

"The goats like to always, of course, be close to the horse, and when she lies down, they lie down on her back," Power said. "And, of course, goats being goats -- you know, they're pretty sure-footed little things -- [the horse] gets up and most of the time they'll just stay on and go for a ride around the farm."

Power said people from the tourism department happened to be driving by her farm and see one of the goats on the horse.

"They thought it was remarkable -- they had never seen anything like it," she said. &quo…

Police in Florida said they arrested a man accused of calling 911 about 80 times because he wanted "Kool-Aid, burgers and weed" brought to his home.

St. Petersburg police said Jarvis Sutton, 34, allegedly called the emergency number about 80 times Sunday and the arrest report said he told officers he "wanted Kool-Aid, burgers and weed to be delivered to him," the Tampa Bay (Fla.) Times reported Wednesday.

Sutton, who was arrested on a charge of misusing the 911 system, allegedly chewed foam attached to the metal caging in the back of a police cruiser during his arrest.

Sutton was jailed in lieu of $150 bail.
