'Boom' goes the dynamite.
January 20, 2021
Greetings fellow Bizarros:
Okay, so you are driving around with a large quantity of loose gunpowder in your front seat (for some reason). If you get the urge to spark up a smoke, don't! That is unless you are planning on making a homemade bomb, in which case go ahead and light up.
It is unclear whether Joseph Brennan of Massachusetts was planning to make a bomb. What is clear is that he blew himself clean out of the driver's door of his Toyota Camry when he lit a smoke.
A bystander heard the explosion from a block away and came running. He found Brennan with singed hair and burns on his face, lying in the street next to his burning vehicle.
"I'm an idiot," was the first thing Brennan allegedly told the bystander. "I lit a cigarette with gunpowder in the front seat."
Once again, what Brennan was doing with loose gunpowder is unclear, but according to the bystander he risked his life to go back to his wrecked vehicle where he allegedly removed multiple items and put them in the trunk.
This, of course, did not deter the police who searched Brennan's car, where they removed 14 liquids and powders, some of which when combined could create what they called a destructive device.
Sounds like 'bomb' to me.
Brennan allegedly told police he had gotten various materials from a friend to tinker with. "I wasn't going to do anything malicious," he said, according to the report.
Police Chief Theodore Ross said in a statement that law enforcement searched Brennan's house and found "precursor components, detonators, and one completed incendiary device." Although Brennan's Facebook page shows an interest in rocket propellants, so it is probably harmless tinkering.
Bomb or amateur rocketry, he certainly found a quick way to remove a lot of body hair.

Swan crashes into woman's bathroom
Animal rescuers in Britain said a swan crashed through a window into a woman's bathroom just moments after she had left for another room. Animal rescue inspector Keith Ellis, who responded to the scene to collect the swan, said it was a highly unusual incident. "I have seen them crash-land on to busy roads thinking they are rivers but nothing like this. It is so bizarre," Ellis said. He said the swan underwent surgery at a local veterinary practice and is now recovering Ellis said the swan will be released back into the wild once it is back to full health. Ellis said it was lucky that the bathroom was unoccupied. "The lady was so lucky when this happened as she had just been in the bathroom," he said. "Had she still been there when this swan crashed through the window, I am sure the glass shattering and the impact of the bird hitting her would have caused serious injury." P.I. Staker was unavailable for comment.
Lewis, it was a little irresponsible to write that sometimes you "have" to drive drunk. You never HAVE to risk your safety and others' like that.
[Hey, like David Attell said, sometimes those kids got to get to school.]
