Out-of-the-Ordinary NewsFor the Week of January 30

Out-of-the-ordinary news from the folks at "Studio B"...

Cut-Off Date

Some people wait a long time to get a haircut. Maybe a month, two months. But one Ohio woman waited a lot longer than that. Try 20 years.

Cathy Collins hair reached all the way down to her thighs. She finally decided it was time for a little trim after her long hair got caught in a car door.

Collins is now donating her 21-inch braid to a charity that makes wigs for sick children.

'Premium' Ham

The package said it was premium ham. That usually means only the finest quality meats were used. But this ham almost left a really bad taste in one guy's mouth.

He tells a British newspaper that the list of ingredients included dog excrement, or another word for such excrement. Turns out that it was just a filthy prank pulled off by a meat processing company employee who was fired.

The guy says he and his wife had a good laugh at the label, but didn't eat any of the ham. The company is scrambling to recall every package with the "extra ingredient" before it gets to consumers.

Call Me God

You're supposed to keep separate church and state in America. But what happens when "God" wants to cast his vote? Well one local board of elections in Pennsylvania says he can't.

You see, one man signed his voter registration form as "God." His real name is Paul Sewell but a county official says he uses "God" as a legal mark.

"God," who is really a bail enforcement officer, says people call him that all the time, fugitives saying, "Oh God, please give me another chance." He even has it on his driver's license.
