Please note whilst I endeavour to keep Media Monday family friendly some of the articles featured do have links to articles of a more adult nature. TT

A cat named 'Kleptokitty' who has developed a habit of stealing everything from my Little Pony toys to underwear and, even, marijuana before bringing it home .. to his police officer owner.

Hmm, puts me in mind of Little Kitty The Cat Burglar. TT

Bemused passengers looked on as tens of crustaceans invaded the Tyne & Wear Metro where, crawling along the platform, they attempted to catch a train back to the coast.

Bee experts at the University of Sussex have discovered that for one in eight bees the prospect of a hard day flitting from flower to flower was too much. Instead of which they simply flew to nearby nests and pilfered the nectar and pollen.

I've come across many articles featuring thieves that were hardly the 'fizziest drinks in the fridge' but this would-be bank robber surely 'takes the biscuit' ...

A sixty-one year old bank robber walked into a bank in Kent where he asked the cashier to transfer the money in to his own account before (and this is what really made me laugh) he fled to a second bank 400ft away which he also tried to hold up, the cashier in the first bank having managed to hit the panic button.

A Toy Story fanatic from Devon who officially changed his name to Buzz Lightyear has been forced to revert to his original given name after the DVLA (Driving and Vehicle Licensing Agency) refused to give him a driving licence for fear of bringing the agency into disrepute. 

And as for Mr T's favourite article?

Etsy selling pills that will let you poop glitter.

Oh and just in case the world does come to an end as the Blood Moon prophecy predicts before I can post Media Monday next week (Monday 28th Of September) may I just say its been my pleasure knowing you all.

Kleptokitty could get his owner into all kinds of trouble, can you imagine the policeman telling his superior “it was the cat wot done it”. Good segway to Little Kitty the Cat Burglar btw.
I feel sorry for those poor crabs, fancy dropping them and not picking them up.
You have to feel sorry for that bank robber too – what on earth did he think was going to happen? Hi, my name is ‘Fred smith’ put all the money into my account. Duh

Brian Joseph said...

I am usually skeptical about such things, but Walmart's plumbing catastrophe seems to be incontrovertible proof that the Blood moon Prophecy is real.

I want to be hanging out with Kleptokitty when it all ends.

Very hilarious post. I enjoyed it tremendously.

Best wishes

Okay so while it wasn't the point of the post, your cat burglar pic has me thinking if the INSPECTOR DEWEY book feat on my site today. ^-^

Tracy Terry said...

Fifty percent of the profits from the sale of the book Gina mentions will fund veterinary care for pets whose families are in financial need, so that the animals can remain in their homes and out of the shelter system.

Love these posts Tracy, there's always something interesting to see! The one about the cat reminds me of a similar story I came across a few years back. He was a ginger tabby and just used to go from house to house taking things to give to his neighbours, haha! - Tasha

Kelly said...

Wow. I'm still trying to wrap my mind around that whole glittery poop business!

Had to laugh (and feel a bit sad) at the mass exodus of crabs trying to get back to the coast. Reminds me of a story of a "pet" crab we had once. It escaped and made an unsuccessful attempt at freedom.

'fizziest drinks in the fridge' I love that! I so need to start saying that. :D

I also saw the glitter stuff last year.

Shooting Stars Mag said...

hahah a cat that steals and is owned by a police officer. You just can't make these things up!

Karen said...

If Kleptokitty could trace the drugs back to the owner he might be useful to his owner lol

Tracy, you have outdone yourself! These stories are too funny for words. Kleptokitty has "stolen my heart", although the glitter from Etsy is rather dazzling. I will keep my fingers crossed until I see your Blood Moon post!

The crustaceans enmasse at the station may signify something natural too.
Well the cat who is a wise pilferer outsmarts the and the silly Bank robber , I suppose.
Thanks again for the Monday snippets. Though I came in late here .
