London's M&M Hair Academy has caused an international incident! Inspired by the story that North Korean men are only allowed one haircut, the salon put up posters offering said hairstyle, accompanied by a photo of Kim Jong Un and the phrase, "Bad Hair Day?" As fate would have it, the North Korean embassy is a 10-minute walk from the salon and the next day officials stopped by to speak to the manager to request that the poster of their leader be removed. To his credit, the manager told the officials, "This isn't North Korea, this is England. We live in a democracy so I'm afraid you're going to have to get out of my salon." Incidentally, no one has yet to request the Kim Jong Un haircut at the salon.

Christina Hines accidently left a $50 bill on a gas station counter in Casselberry, Florida, but even though a clerk ran after Christina, she drove off without the cash. Luckily, a deputy was there and he tried to help by chasing after Christina to return the money. Thinking police were after her, Christina hit the gas and the chase was on until she was done in by a spike strip. Christina had good reason to suspect the cops might be after her since she had heroin and hypodermic needles in her car and was driving on a suspended license. That $50 may now come in handy for bail.
