Around The Weird: Bizarre News Briefs

OXON HILL, Md. (Wireless Flash) -- These questions won't end up on a SAT test. The Associated Press reports that a 10th grade geometry teacher in Maryland was reprimanded for giving tests to high school students that included questions about drugs, crime and weapons. Some of the questions began with phrases like "Jose has two ounces of cocaine," and "Willie gets $200 for a stolen BMW."

MUNICH -- If you stare at boobies, you might get your wallet stolen. That's what people at this year's Oktoberfest in Munich have found out after having their money stolen by the "boob bandits." According to the "Daily Times," the gang singles out drunken festival guests and while one of the busty women flashes her boobs, the others relieve drunken onlookers of their wallet. Police are warning male festival-goers to beware of women flashing their breasts.

PROVO, Utah -- The student newspaper at Brigham Young University has pulled advertisements for a T-shirt that says "I can't... I'm Mormon." "Deseret News "reports the paper received numerous complaints from students and faculty saying the slogan implied wearers wished they could drink, smoke or have casual sex, but were prevented from doing these things because of their religion. Many at the university also felt the female modeling the shirt in the ad struck an overly provocative pose.

NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- A helicopter pilot who wanted to shave some time off his commute wound up with a ticket for landing in his backyard. John Kjekstad who runs two helicopter and airplane charter companies was piloting his chopper into Teterboro, New Jersey, when he spotted bumper-to-bumper traffic on his way home to New Canaan, Connecticut. He decided to land directly at home. That's when his neighbor called police, who ticketed him $75 for violating a town ordinance prohibiting landing aircraft on residential property.
