WASHINGTON (Wireless Flash) -- More than 81,000 pounds of corn dogs are being recalled because they fail to cut the mustard with the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The USDA is demanding that Texas-based Bryan Foods yank the corn dogs from shelves because the labels don't mention the inclusion of dried egg yolk, a potential allergen. The condemned corn dogs were mainly distributed in Alabama, Florida, Louisiana and Mississippi.

GREENSBURG, La. -- Talk about eager beavers: Police who were searching for a sack of stolen money discovered a bunch of beavers had found the bills and used them to build a dam in a Louisiana creek. Officers believe thieves tossed the cash into the creek after robbing a truck stop video poker casino north of Baton Rouge. Luckily, around $40,000 worth of bills were still whole and officers were able to return the dough to the rightful owners.

LONDON -- A couple in Birmingham, England, found a nasty housewarming gift when they walked inside their new house: A badly-decomposing body which police believe had been in the upstairs bedroom for at least two years. According to the "Daily Telegraph," police believe the dead man was a vagrant and have classified the death as "suspicious."
