Rude? I'll show you RUDE!
Independent Online | Submitted by: Alaska Freegold
"A public transit bus driver in the Portuguese capital Lisbon punched and kicked passengers after they complained that he was rude, the daily newspaper 24Horas reported on Saturday. The driver stopped the packed bus at a red light in the middle of rush-hour traffic in Lisbon on Friday afternoon and repeatedly punched one passenger in the face, breaking the man's glasses."

Better hockey stripper picture
Wire Services | Submitted by: Deth Vegetable
A better picture than the one we posted yesterday from the Flames-Bruins game in Calgary, in which a man attempted to streak across the ice, ending in unconsciousness. Nice photographic angle.

Only 199 kids still missing, way to go Florida!
Miami Herald | Submitted by: wingnut
Thirteen of 199 Florida children who have been missing from state supervision for months are believed by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to be in ''immediate danger,'' The other 184 missing kids -- identified as teenage runaways or children abducted by nonabusive parents in violation of custody decrees -- may be in some danger, FDLE believes, but their circumstances make their immediate safety less of a concern. DCF administrators and investigators have said the Rilya Wilson case is an anomaly. "You weren't supposed to know about it"

Lung man may lose much needed sympathy
Dayton Daily News | Submitted by: Idle Hands
Man sees wife drive by with another guy. Man follows wife with a loaded gun. Man is arrested. The kicker: Man is somewhat of a local human interest hero in dire need of a lung transplant. "Steele, the father of two young children, has no health insurance. Community members have donated thousands to the Kevin Steele NTFA Lung Transplant Fund." Will his community will continue to be so generous?

Monkey business at abandoned warehouse
Stuff NZ | Submitted by: wingnut
"There it lay, just inside a back door, still wearing the tattered sleeve of an orange business shirt. Wrenched from the shoulder socket with the ball joint showing, was the dry, crusty and mummified arm of a long dead human. The point of entry to the crime scene was obvious, through a broken window. Well, on first glance that's what it looked like."

Phil Gramm equates taxation with Nazism
New York Times | Submitted by: Louth Slab
Evidently, anyone opposed to tax loopholes is a fascist. During a September debate on whether to penalize Americans who avoid paying taxes by renouncing their U.S. citizenship, Senator Phil Gramm, R-Texas, declared that the proposal was "right out of Nazi Germany." [The Rotten staff have undertaken an exhaustive review of Reichstadt legal statutes, but so far have been unable to corroborate Gramm's assertion.]

Hands off these bras!
Stuff NZ | Submitted by: wingnut
A followup from two previous Daily Rottens: "Mr.Lee said since the second bra cleanout women from all over the world had posted him their underwear. A parcel containing bras would arrive with just a first name on it and no address, he said. To his amusement recently a car load of women stripped off their bras in broad daylight and placed them on the fence. "By God they are going to have to work hard to get these bras off"

Batty boys not welcome, mon
Observer | Submitted by: Son of Benway
"Every one of David's scars tells a terrifying story. There is the one where his throat was slashed by a mob that chased him through the streets of downtown Kingston, the incident in which his arm was broken in two places, the horrific ordeal during which his right hand was almost severed at the wrist by a blow from a machete. Then there are the marks on his feet where he was beaten with sticks, the eardrum perforated by a blow from a baton and the emotional scars of the time he was forced to run into the sea close to Norman Manley airport and swim against the tide for four exhausting hours to escape certain death."

Pennsylvania inmates punished with superbug
Courier Times | Submitted by: Son of Benway
"I had nice skin at one time. I had no problems before I went into the jail. Now, nothing takes it away." The 39-year-old woman from Upper Southampton entered Bucks County's prison June 21, 2000, after pleading guilty to taking her boyfriend's car without permission. Within a little more than two weeks, she would be covered from scalp to feet with red, swollen bumps."
