End times have come to a parking lot in Naugatuck, Conn.
Jesus and Satan are facing off in a horn-honking version of Armageddon, the Waterbury Republican-American reports.
It began late last month when small-business owner Claudette Soden put up a hand-painted sign soliciting honks for Christ in front of a parking lot she shares with a tattoo parlor on Rubber Avenue in Naugatuck.
Her white "Easter: Beep for Christ" sign prompted Phil Young of No Regrets tattoos to put up a sign of his own. His black placard asked drivers to "Honk twice for ..." followed by a cartoon of a red devil, the paper said.
"His sign is not bothering me, but I know it's bothering Jesus," Soden, who runs Photos Onto DVD, told the Republican-American. "And children are going to pass by that sign and say, 'What is that? It looks like a devil.' And what are parents going to say to that?"
Young sees his addition as a complement to Christ.
"More people have been killed in the name of God than over anything else, and so I don't think people should fight about religion," he said. "Satan is part of the same religion as Christ, so it's a contrast, not a competing religion."
Honks and beeps have filled the air since God and Satan took their stands on Rubber Avenue. And it looks like it isn't going to end anytime soon.
Florida Sign Vanishes in a Puff
A Pensacola businessman is wondering who on earth would want to steal at 10-foot-long cigarette.
Last week, someone swiped the 2-foot-wide smoke from the roof of Tobacco Depot Discount Superstore, the Pensacola News Journal reports.
"I'm thinking it was some kids on spring break playing a prank," said Roderick Lowd, the manager of the store, who is offering a $50 reward for the cigarette's recovery.
The sheet-metal cigarette, which billows smoke from its tip, weighs about 50 pounds and is worth $1,200, according to the paper.
"We had a good laugh about it," Lowd said. "I couldn't believe someone would want to steal a 10-foot cigarette."
Drunk Zamboni Driving OK by New Jersey Courts
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — You can't be charged with drunken driving on a Zamboni in New Jersey.
A judge ruled the four-ton ice-cleaning machine isn't a motor vehicle, in part because it's not useable on a highway and can't carry passengers.
The judge Monday overturned the license revocation and penalties imposed against Zamboni operator John Peragallo last year.
Peragallo was charged in 2005 with drunken driving after a fellow employee at the Mennen Sports Arena in Morristown told police the machine was speeding and nearly crashed into the boards.
Police said Peragallo's blood alcohol level was 0.12. Levels of 0.08 are considered legally drunk.
At his trial, the 64-year-old testified he drank beer and vodka on the job after he had groomed the ice.
Peragallo, who worked for the Morris County park system since 1994, plans to sue his former employer.
Going From Green Jackets to Prison Stripes
AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — A freelance editor from Alabama who was hired by CBS to help cover the Masters golf tournament this week was one of three people arrested Monday and charged in a bank robbery, authorities said.
A man wearing a white T-shirt, blue jeans and an Atlanta Braves sun visor entered a Wachovia bank branch on Gordon Highway shortly after 9 a.m. and handed a teller a note demanding money, said Sgt. Richard Roundtree of the Richmond County Sheriff's Department.
A red dye pack mixed in the money exploded in the parking lot, he said.
After an anonymous tip, investigators arrested Michael Alan Crane, 31, at a nearby Holiday Inn and found clothing stained with red dye in his room, along with an undisclosed amount of money taken in the robbery, Roundtree said in a news release.
Two alleged accomplices from the area, Jawone Reginald Bennett, 31, and Shelby Lee Wills, 28, were arrested a short time later at a lounge, he said. All three were charged with robbery by intimidation and held in the Richmond County Jail.
Roundtree said both Crane's hotel room and the rental car used in the robbery were registered to CBS.
Leslie Anne Wade, vice president of communications for CBS Sports, confirmed Crane's employment.
"He was hired as a freelance technician for this event," Wade told The Augusta Chronicle.
It's Official: Ynot Is Just Another Bubba
LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) — Las Cruces trucker Justin Brady wanted a new name, and state District Court Judge Jerald Valentine has granted his request.
Brady's new moniker is Ynot Bubba.
He has no celebration plans, Bubba said after Monday's court proceeding.
Bubba, who is 43, asked to change his name because he no longer has a relationship with his adoptive parents, the Bradys.
His chosen first name, Ynot, comes from communities around the country named Wynot and Whynot.
His last name is courtesy of the people he now considers family.
They nicknamed him Bubba for no particular reason.
