Drag Queen Robbery

August 22nd, 2005

COLUMBIA, S.C. – It didn’t take long for deputies to realize they had the right man in a bank robbery. The black dress with red flowers, red straw hat, and little black mustache gave him away.
Booker Boyd, 49, chose to disguise himself in drag to rob a bank in a Columbia suburb Wednesday afternoon, Richland County sheriff’s Lt. Chris Cowan said.
Boyd hadn’t changed his clothes when he was caught a few minutes later driving a stolen Ford Expedition, Cowan said.
He was charged with two counts of entering a bank with intent to steal, Cowan said.
Investigators suspect Boyd in two other bank robberies in the past two weeks, but his disguises were much less flashy, authorities said.
FBI spokesman Tom O’Neill said he doesn’t know why Boyd decided to dress up Wednesday.
“We don’t speculate on what motivates these people – or their choice of wardrobe,” O’Neill said.

Woman Collapses in Supermarket

August 11th, 2005

A woman collapsed in a supermarket when her vibrating panties made her faint with pleasure. The kinky 33-year-old housewife was wearing a pair of battery-operated Passion Pants, bought from a sex ship, while she did her shopping, according to the British tabloid The Sun. But she got so stimulated by the 6cm vibrating bullet in the panties that she lost consciousness.
She fell and hit her head in the crowded supermarket in Swansea, Wales. When paramedics arrived, they found her black imitation leather knikcers still buzzing. They took them off before an ambulance took her to the hospital. The woman, who’s identity has been kept private, suffered no long-lasting ill effects. And as she left the hospital a paramedic gave her back the Passion Pants in a plastic bag.

Barbecue Chain Buys Porn Web Site

August 10th, 2005

COLUMBIA, S.C. – Surfers trying to find the barbecue chain Sticky Fingers on the Internet no longer face the possibility of ending up at a much saucier Web site.
The Charleston company spent $6,000 to buy the address from a site offering pornography.
“Now we don’t have to talk to angry customers calling, thinking we’re perverts,” said Jeff Goldstein, one of three men who own the 15-restaurant chain in the Carolinas, Florida and Tennessee.
During the 10 years the restaurant tried to buy the domain name, the company received a couple of calls a day from upset people who found porn instead of ribs and sauce, Goldstein said.
Since taking over the address, site visits have more than quadrupled and online sales have doubled, co-owner Chad Walldorf said.
