British lottery winners may soon find their cups runneth over.
Europa International of London is running the world's first lottery for cosmetic surgery, Reuters reports.
Britons can enter the monthly drawing for a $2.90 phone call and win a top prize of around $11,600 to put toward a breast enlargement, tummy tuck or face lift.
Europa International co-founder John Babbage likens the drawing to a reality television show.
But local surgeons disagree. They call the cosmetic surgery "superdraw" a dangerous and unscrupulous marketing gimmick.
You win some, then lose some.
Here Comes the Bride, but Where Are the Guests?
One bride in New Orleans is learning the hard way that when your team finally makes the playoffs, you are going to walk down the aisle in an empty church.
A dozen guests have cancelled on Tara Chauffe's Saturday nuptials because the Saints will be playing the Philadelphia Eagles in the Superdome, the Associated Press reports.
Two bridesmaids and a groomsman have shown their true colors, offering to give up their seats to stand up for the bride and groom.
The bride and her husband-to-be plan to set up a TV at the reception so the rest of the guests can tune in to watch the big game.
You Can Steal, But You Can't Kill, the Rooster
GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) — Authorities are on the lookout for a missing 4-foot statue of a caped crusading rooster the was ripped from his concrete moorings on the downtown square.
The fiberglass fowl, known as "Super Rooster," was stolen over the weekend. It was one of 14 themed poultry sculptures in a countywide outdoor art exhibit.
"I'm just terribly disappointed that there are people in this community who think they can come along and steal him," said Brenda Martin, a member of the Phoenix Society, the women's group that organized the rooster project.
The project raised money for local service groups and is modeled after the Town Turtles of Sandy Springs and a painted bulldog project in Athens, Georgia. Carol Daniel Construction paid $2,500 to sponsor Super Rooster.
Gainesville, known for its chicken processing plants, has been nicknamed "Poultry Capital of the World."
Tandy Ray, the Gainesville Elementary School art teacher who painted Super Rooster, said she was "really heartbroken" by the theft. The lightweight, molded sculpture spent 18 months in her basement before it made its debut on the square in November.
"I'm also flattered to a certain extent that mine was the first stolen," Ray joked.
Lt. Brian Kelly said Gainesville police have no leads.
"It's like he put his cape into action and flew away," Kelly said.
Well James Brown's Pompadour Did Add 2 Inches
ATMORE, Ala. (AP) — A man shot a friend when the two got into an argument over James Brown's height, police said.
Dan Gulley Jr. was charged with assault in the shooting of David James Brooks Jr., police said.
Officers said the men were at a friend's home on Monday when, according to witnesses, the argument over the height of "The Godfather of Soul" escalated, with Gulley shooting Brooks twice in the abdomen. Brooks went to his car, got a gun and shot at Gulley but missed, then went to the police station, officers said.

Thieves Have Their Cake and Leave It Too
SYLVA, N.C. (AP) — A trail of cake crumbs helped police find two suspects accused of trying to break into the town of Sylva's police department.
Zachary Hughes, 24, and Shawn Bubacz, 34, were arrested after police discovered Saturday the glass front door for the department was broken, Detective Aimee Sumner said Wednesday.
An American flag and an orange "Authorized Vehicles Only" sign were missing. Damage was estimated at $942.
Cake was smeared on the building and a trail of cake crumbs led officers to a cake box lid a few blocks away. Officers found out two men had taken a cake with them from a birthday party at a nearby restaurant.
Hughes and Bubacz were found at a house two blocks from the police department.
"Both the males had cake icing on them that matched the icing on the door here at the police department," Sumner said. "Both subjects had been drinking."
Hughes was charged with misdemeanor possession of stolen goods and property, misdemeanor larceny, injury to real property, misdemeanor conspiracy and misdemeanor attempted breaking and entering.
Bubacz was charged with misdemeanor conspiracy and attempted breaking and entering.
