The first story is odd an sad at the same time. It involves a woman who refused to leave her boyfriend's bathroom for two years. Here is a little bit of the article:
WICHITA, Kansas (AP) -- A 35-year-old woman who sat on her boyfriend's toilet for so long that her body was stuck to the seat had a phobia about leaving the bathroom, the boyfriend said. The case drew nationwide attention after Ness County Sheriff Bryan Whipple said it appeared the Ness City woman's skin had grown around the seat in the two years she apparently was in the bathroom.
"We pried the toilet seat off with a pry bar and the seat went with her to the hospital," Whipple said. "The hospital removed it."
As sad as this story is the part that had me was the irony that the Sheriff who handled this case was named Whipple...as in Mr. Whipple who was also famous for bathroom related reasons. You just can't make this stuff up !!
The second story is kind of creepy too. It involves the police discovering a woman's body preserved on dry ice while they were conducting a drug raid. Here is a little bit of the story. See if you can spot the ironic name:
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. --Police thought they were handling a routine drug bust at a ritzy hotel until they opened a large container and found a woman's body preserved on a bed of dry ice. In the days since the macabre discovery, the tale has only gotten more bizarre.
Acquaintances said Monique Trepp, a 33-year-old aspiring model, died a year ago and that her boyfriend, a convicted drug dealer, held a wake for her at the hotel where he lived for three years. Authorities said she had been dead "a while," but released few other details.
The person who likely knows more, Trepp's 46-year-old boyfriend, Stephen David Royds, made a cryptic statement from jail, where he's being held on $1 million bail on felony drug charges. Police had been tailing Royds for some time when they arrested him last week. An informant said he was selling cocaine on the beach, Sgt. Evan Sailor said.
Trepp's body was found stuffed in a giant Rubbermaid container packed with dry ice in Royds' executive suite, which goes for up to $400 per night.
Ok so besides being incredibly creepy my point is that the name of the boyfriend is terribly ironic ... Who would have figured that someone whose last name is Royds would end up being a drug dealer? Go figure right? LOL!
What's in a name? Apparently the answer is irony.
