I couldn't make this up if I tried. . .'Sexy' felon Jeremy Meeks could reportedly receive modeling contract
-Jeremy Meeks, the felon who had his "sexy" mugshot go viral last week, may be able to enter the world of modeling upon his release. Blaze Modelz reportedly told TMZ that "gangster models" are currently in vogue and they could get him $15,000 to $30,000 a month contracts with top fashion houses like Versace and Armani. Another unnamed modeling agency said they are also interested in working with Meeks when he gets out of prison. The numerous tattoos don't seem to be a problem for either agency. Blaze said it even likes the teardrop tattoo below his right eye -- a symbol associated with gangs. Meeks is being held on $900,000 bail under serious weapons charges.

I couldn't make this up if I tried. . .Tennessee park ranger fired for dancing on the job
A Tennessee park ranger says he was fired for dancing on the job after a visitor to Coolidge Park in Chattanooga posted a video of him busting a move on Facebook.

According to Deryl Nelson, his supervisors were not impressed with the video and he was terminated for "conduct unbecoming of a public employee."

Melissa Parsons posted the video online after capturing it on her cellphone because she didn't think Nelson's moves were appropriate for children to see.

"As a parent and seeing all the parents that were covering their kids eyes and turning their heads away, it wasn't something you would expect to see in Coolidge Park or anywhere from a grown man, especially a man in uniform," Parsons told NewChannel 9 WTVC.

"He went all the way to the grou…

Lost A Part of Me

When my late husband asked me to marry him, he didn't have a ring in his pocket. He wanted me to help him pick out what *I* wanted. So we went to DeMontigny Jewelers in Nashua, NH (a client of mine at the time) and created a special ring. Just under a half carat pear brilliant diamond flanked by a diamond and emerald on either side of the setting. It was beautiful. When he died in 2006 at the age of 40, I was devastated. I wanted to something with the ring and ended up having the pear diamond made into a pendant and got a 20" yellow gold chain with a lobster clasp made to wear. The rest of the ring was made into earrings. I wore that necklace every day, never taking it off except for once when I was in the emergency room earlier this year for x-rays for bronchitis. I was in Portsmouth, NH this past Saturday (June 21st, the first day of Spring) to attend a book signing of a dear friend, the retired chief of police of Portsmouth, NH, David "Lou" Ferland. I met a frie…

Anyone with $15 and access to the Internet can go on the web and purchase Matthew McConaughey's soul, providing they have an extra $5 to cover the shipping costs. The star's soul is being sold by SoulsRUs, an online Etsy shop which specializes in selling celebrity souls. The store is running low on inventory right now -- although Drake's eternal spirit is still available -- but SoulsRUs has previously sold the souls of celebs like Justin Bieber, Ryan Gosling and Jennifer Lawrence. The owner of the store, Molly "The Happy Reaper" Gates, is happy to provide fans with the ultimate souvenir.

I couldn't make this up if I tried. . .Google Street View cameras capture fake murder
A pair of pranksters who mocked up a murder scene, knowing their stunt would be captured by Google Street View cameras, have had a visit from police in Edinburgh after the images were spotted online. Garage owner Dan Thompson said he came up with the idea after spotting a Street View van. He told the BBC that officers who visited his garage knew it was a wind-up as one of his customers was a police officer who was already aware of the incident.
