Sleepy man falls asleep near Sleepy's

An entry in the Milford police log this week just begs to be in this column. Police determined there was property damage at the business, as well as to two signs and a bush.

Take the turkey, leave the bike

A Northbridge man went to great lengths to donate a couple of items to a Hopkinton church this week. Whether the donations were his original intention is unknown. Cops and the man met again after it was reported that the man left the bike and a turkey (a dead one from the supermarket) behind a local church. The church kept the bike, but discarded the turkey, which was expired. Meanwhile, the man proceeded to Framingham, which was perhaps another stop on his tour of (sort of) goodwill through MetroWest.

If you're a kid who doesn't like food on your plate, the preferred method of handling it is to move it around a bunch and hope your parents don't notice when it goes in the trash. It's not advisable to take said food and put it in places it doesn't belong. The joke was on them when police were called, they were discovered, and forced to return with their parents to clean up the mess. It's unknown whether these culprits were also connected to an even .

The bullet in the bum one isn't funny. Totally terrifying circumstances for that poor woman and that neighborhood.

The bullet in the bum was very funny. Should have said a bum takes one in the bum.

Two guys were running and shooting at each other in the street, The poor lady who got the bullet was hiding in a car just trying to stay out of the way. It is like making fun of someone being raped or a child being kidnapped. True, the victims don't usually die, but the physical and emotional scars last for a life time. It doesn't belong here.
