2008 Stories of the Year

Rolling Stone recently issued their 2008 A Year In Review issue with Brad Pitt on the cover. They go through many lists: Albums of the Year, Singles of the Year, Movies of the Year, Stories of the Year, etc. My favorite section to browse is the stories of 2008. They really find some psycho stories.

These are some of the top stories Rolling Stone published in their magazine. These are all taken verbatim from the magazine:

An Israeli researcher theorizes that Moses may have been under the influence of psychadelic drugs when he saw the "burning bush."

When Brett Favre announced his retirement from the Green Bay Packers, a Connecticut boy finally removed the Favre jersey he'd worn every day for four years.

Arkansas lawmakers close a loophole in a marriage law that allowed toddlers to marry so long as they had parental permission.

Two men and a juvenile in Humble, Texas are accused of digging up a corpse and using the head to smoke marijana.

A group of third graders in Waycross, Georgia are caught plotting to attack their teacher with a broken steak knife, handcuffs and duct tape.

British coast guard is forced to postpone the rescue of a group of stranded teenagers when the teens are too drunk to get in the lifeboat.

A Tampa, Florida man is arrested for calling 911 to report that a casino slot machine stole his money.

A Jacksonville, Florida man calls 911 to report that Subway improperly left the sauce off his Spicy Italian sub.

A British man awakens from a coma after his relatives play the Rolling Stones' "I Can't Get No Satisfaction."

Pretty bizarre stories. What do you think?
