A Man Fakes a Robbery So His Wife Won't Find Out He Spent Their $1,000 Tax Refund at a Strip Club:
Last week, 21-year-old Jesus Mata Junior of La Feria, Texas got his $1,000 tax refund. And he did what any red-blooded American man would do . . . he cashed the check and immediately blew the entire grand at a STRIP CLUB.
There's only one problem. Jesus is married. So he didn't blow his personal refund at a strip club . . . that refund also belonged to his WIFE.
So Jesus came up with an excuse. He called the police and told them that he'd been ROBBED at gunpoint by SIX MEN.
The police searched the area, followed leads, tried to hunt down the robbers . . . and naturally, didn't turn up anything. They talked to Jesus again, noticed some inconsistencies in his story . . . and he admitted everything.
He was arrested for filing a false report. There's no word on his wife's reaction.
Hundreds of People Show Up at the Funeral For a Veteran With No Family, After the Invitation Goes Viral on Facebook:
James McConnell of Southsea, Hampshire, England is a veteran of the British Royal Marines. He died last month at age 70, in a nursing home. And James didn't have any known family members.
The nursing home's vicar was worried that no one would be at James's funeral. So he asked the Royal Marines Association to try to publicize it a little bit.
They put a post up on Facebook asking people to come to James's funeral. And it went viral.
So last Thursday . . . at least TWO HUNDRED PEOPLE came to pay tribute to James at his funeral.
