There are some sick people in the world… and then there’s this guy;
Police in Boulder, Colorado are searching for a man who hid inside a portable toilet at a yoga festival.
Apparently a woman went to use the portable toilet and told police she noticed something moving inside the tank when she lifted the lid. She believed there was a person inside the toilet, so she went to get help. Sure enough. A man was seen inside the tank, seemingly covered by a tarp.
“A festival security supervisor waited outside for several minutes and then saw a suspect emerge from the portable toilet,” police said in a release. “The supervisor tried to detain the suspect, but he ran away, covered in feces.”
Now… he’s injured as police say he had several cuts on his back and legs. Police believe the suspect may be a transient.
So he’s still out there???!!! Great!

KISS Bassist Gene Simmons was recetly given a key to the city in Winnipeg, but its not sitting well with everyone.
One city councillor in Winnipeg is giving his colleagues a tongue-lashing over the decision to give Simmons the key to the city… saying it’s ridiculous to officially honour the rock legend and TV star because he is a poor role model for children.
Grant Nordman noted that Simmons has bragged for years about his quote “prowess with women.”
The mayor’s office says the award simply shows that Winnipeg is a welcoming, caring city.

Jezebel.com is out with a list of… how-to-describe-your-marriage. Which one are you?
The Semihappy Marriage: You’re bored with each other but don’t leave because it’s comfortable. You’re going to get a divorce.
The Parenting Marriage: You have kids, so you stay together for them, even though you’d like to get divorced.
Workhorse Wives: You should not have married that sculptor because sculpting doesn’t pay the bills and now the woman is going to have to do all of the work. You’re going to go insane, and then get a divorce.
Ed McMahon Syndrome: You agree with your spouse because you’re sick of arguing. You seem to agree with Johnny Carson a lot. You want a divorce.
The Semimarried: You don’t really love each other, but you don’t dislike each other enough to break up. So you don’t. You’re not ballsy enough to divorce, but you want to.

It’s official: the Atlanta Thrashers are moving to Winnipeg. The announcement was made Tuesday in Winnipeg Tuesday as True North Sports and Entertainment made the formal announcement.
NHL commissioner Gary Bettman had a ringing endorsement… “Sometimes, we simply don’t have a choice.”
The Thrashers’ owners have said in court documents that the team has lost $130 million since 2005.
Here’s a fun little fact… Atlanta is the only U.S. city to lose a sports franchise to Canada, and they’ve done it twice. The first time was when the Flames left for Calgary in 1980.
No word yet on whether or not the move will rebrand the team the “Jets,” the franchise that left Winnipeg for Phoenix to become the Coyotes in 1996.
