In Camillus, NY, Mark and Christina Rontondo are going to Onondaga County Supreme Court to force their 30-year-old son leave home! Father Mark Rotondo wrote his son, Michael, in a letter filed with the court which read: "After a discussion with your Mother, we have decided that you must leave this house immediately." But Michael isn't going anywhere without a fight and is ignoring their demand to leave. So his parents have been left with little choice but to start a legal eviction process that has lasted three months so far and gone from local court up to Onondaga County's top court. Michael has not yet responded to his parents in court. (Syracuse.com)

They Should Have Had These in "The Birds!"
A waterfront restaurant in Perth, Australia has begun arming its customers with water guns to help them fight off flocks of seagulls that keep stealing food! Toby Evans, owner of 3 Sheets pizzeria, said it was a desperate measure, but the seagulls had become so good at stealing food, particularly off the plates of children, that it was affecting his business. He noted, "We wanted to do something humanely... so we went down to Toys R Us and bought a load of super soakers, we've got one on each of our outdoor tables. We just fill them up with water and when the seagulls get too close the customers unleash Armageddon with water on them." The idea has been greeted with enthusiasm by customers at the restaurant and Evans adds, "It's also training the seagulls to tell them 'you are not welcome here guys, go and get your own food, go to the ocean where you belong'." He said seagulls lived on the water and the spray from the weapons was no worse than getting a bit of seawater splashed over them. (ABC)
Bow to the Power of the Tattoo!
A 30-year-old mom in Sweden is legally changing her new baby's name after her tattoo artist misspelled it on her arm. Choosing your baby's name isn't easy. It seems 30-year-old Johanna Giselhäll Sandström had requested a tattoo of her children's names, Nova and Kevin. What she got was "Nova and Kelvin". So she then had three options: live with the typo, have it modified, or go down the slightly more extreme route of changing her son's name. Which is exactly what she did. The tattoo parlor gave her a full refund and offered to pay to have the tattoo removed, but that's not a simple or quick process, and in the meantime, Johanna started to come around to the name "Kelvin". She said, "We decided to rename the boy." (Mirror)
When Idiots Visit the Free Roaming Zoo
A French family barely escaped with their lives after exiting their car not once but twice to photograph the full-grown cheetahs at a safari park in the Netherlands. Of course the first thing visitors are told when visiting a drive-through safari park is to never, under any circumstances, leave their vehicles. Failing to follow this most important rule can lead to serious injury or even death from the wild predators roaming the grounds. But that risk was apparently not considerable enough to deter one family of idiots visiting the Beekse Bergen safari park. They hopped right out of their car with their small children, just so they could snap better pictures of the cheetahs roaming around. When the cheetahs decided to rush them, they barely got back in the car alive. (Sky News)
Well Done Children. Well Done!
Authorities in Wisconsin have commended a high school prank which involved a supposed car accident. Cumberland police posted images on Facebook, which seemed to show a car "smashing" into Cumberland High School. Officers wrote: "Hats off to the Cumberland High School Class of 2018 on your senior prank!" School property wasn't damaged by the stunt -- which was pulled off with black tarp, bricks, a junk car and tape - but it really did look real - like the car had crashed halfway through the side of the school. The Facebook post has been shared more than 1,700 times and people also praised the police for their take on the situation. One wrote: "Hats off to Cumberland PD for having a sense of humor! People are too serious these days . Great prank! Sometimes things are just funny! Laugh people!" (FOX News)
Not all is well in Birmingham, Alabama - especially at the New Era Baptist Church which has posted an unthinkable sign in front of the church which reads: "Black Folks Need to Stay Out of White Churches." Ironically, the message is intended for its own members - which are all African American. The other side of the sign reads: "White folks refused to be our neighbors." Pastor Michael R. Jordan is responsible for the sign but so far has refused to comment. Back in 2013, after George Zimmerman was acquitted in the Trayvon Martin case, he put up a sign that read: "George Zimmerman Jury Supported White Racism." The latest sign caught the attention of Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin who was not pleased. (FOX 19)
What the What?
In Cambodia, a woman named Ah Lin Tuch has been arrested after posting videos on YouTube of herself dressed in hot pants and crop tops and skinning and eating animals that are endangered. So far she has eaten: an endangered fishing cat, a large lizard, several protected species of birds, a king cobra, a shark, stingrays and several frogs. She and her husband Phoun Raty were tracked down by the country's Ministry of Environment and have publicly apologized for "destroying our wildlife." The couple also said they didn't realize the animals were endangered and were simply trying to make a living by producing and posting "survivalist" videos. So far they have earned $500 for Google sponsored ads being shown on the clips. (Metro)
