Aliens and anal probes:
Warning --note scatological content:
A 27-year-old man is full of it... literally. The Chinese man has been suffering from constipation for the last 10 years. Recently he went to the hospital with severe stomach pains and had to have surgery to remove what doctors say was an 11 pound stool from his colon.
X-rays showed his heart had shifted to the right because his colon had swelled to twice it's normal size. Doctors referred to it as a condition called "congenital megacolon." The patient is now resting comfortably. (Myers)
DONALD TRUMP was reportedly followed around by a UFO earlier this month.
When Trump made an appearance at the Iowa State Fair on August 15th, witnesses noticed a strange object watching him from the skies. As the presidential hopeful left the area in his helicopter, someone even managed to snap a photo of the unidentified flying object in hot pursuit.
Trump's camp isn't commenting on the possible alien encounter. But, the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) has launched an official investigation. (Still)
Another addition to "Dancing with the Stars" --the show's Twitter account posted a video with "Honey, I'm Good" singer ANDY GRAMMER noting the rumors were true and he'd be competing on the upcoming season beginning Sep 14. He'll be paired with pro PETA MURGATROYD on the show.
Just milk in the school lunch, thanks:
School begins today in Lithuania, and for the ninth year in a row, no retailers may sell alcohol during the 24 hours of September 1. The nation-wide ban includes not only shops, but also restaurants, cafes and clubs and was passed in 2006 as an effort to fight drinking among minors. At the time, the sponsoring MP told Parliament, "[The first day of school] must be sober. We should have at least one day in a year in Lithuania free of alcohol."
Cash registers across the country are programmed to reject inputs of alcohol stock numbers for the time period.
Video Music Awards fashion fallout:
"Kanye for President" shirts are already selling after KANYE WEST announced he'd run for President in 2020 during his Video Vanguard Award acceptance speech Sunday night. The Hollywood Reporter says do-it-yourselfers are selling shirts online that range from the basic "Kanye West '20" to the more inventive "Yeezus for President, Bruh!" (Bartha)
