Around The Weird: Bizarre News Briefs

VERNON, N.J. (Wireless Flash) -- The Boy Scouts of America are all in a twist over a lawsuit resulting from a scout's dismissal over an incident involving spaghetti. The parents of 11-year-old Vernon, New Jersey, youngster Robbie Kent say he was thrown out of his troop after he "accidentally" sprinkled a whole can of parmesan cheese on his spaghetti dinner during a camp-out. According to "The Star Ledger," the parents' suit against both the local and the national Scout groups seeks Robbie's reinstatement into the organization as well as unspecified damages.

BOZEMAN, Mont. -- A Bozeman, Montana, Dairy Queen got exactly what it asked for after running ads offering a free "Moolatte" coffee drink to any customer who came in with a live cow. Rancher Skip Houghland brought in his Scottish Highland steer -- who goes by the name Bonnie Prince Edward Stuart -- surprising employees at the ice cream shop and attracting the attention of numerous children. True to their word, the staff gave Houghland a free Moolatte.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- School kids in Palm Beach, Florida, are being offered a sweet treat for getting good grades this year. Krispy Kreme has offered free doughnuts to students for every A they receive on their report card. In one school, when children reach academic goals they decorate posters of doughnuts with "success sprinkles" and then redeem their treats at Krispy Kreme. But some school officials aren't biting at the reward system in light of rising childhood obesity rates.

BERLIN -- A German dictionary publisher says it will soon publish a German-woman-to-German-man translation guide. In the book published by the Langenscheidt publishing group, the phrase "Let's just cuddle" will be defined as "No sex tonight please!." The guide will also provide clues for reading between the lines during social situations like shopping and vacations.

If you can't get rid of someone oneway, try another. Let this be a lesson to all Scouts everywhere.

A lesson to all store owners and/or managers. Don't make what you think is a silly promotional offer, it might come back to bite you.
