Yes Virgina...that is the "Moon" you see!
Sometimes the moon isn't too bright.
Lisa Grant, a Virginia mom, will spend her upcoming weekends behind bars because she mooned a school bus full of 45 children in Suffolk, Fox News reports.
The 34-year-old admits that she had a heated exchange with the bus driver, who sent a note home saying that Grant's son was misbehaving. A school spokesperson said the note was a warning.
Grant wasn't going to take that from the bus driver -- no ifs, ands, or butts about it. She was accused of showing skin in the school bus' general direction last November, though she still denies she mooned the driver.
"I did not moon the bus. I did not flash," she told WAVY. "I take full responsibility for my actions, for my disorderly conduct, for my arguing with her. I take full responsibility for that, but she also deserves the same thing I got."
The Associated Press reports that she was convicted this week of disorderly conduct and sentenced to six months in jail, with five months of her sentence suspended. She'll be serving her time on the weekends only.
A+ For effort...But don't go off half "Cocked!"
A Florida woman allegedly came up with a half-cocked plan to take the law into her own hands.
Officials say Natasha Myers, 23, used her car keys to etch a penis onto the hood of a silver Kia in the parking lot of a grocery store in Wesley Chapel on April 17, the Tampa Bay Times reported.
The rude rendering was complete with a note, which read:
"Hey I keyed your car. You didn't stop for pedestrians as is law. Since no cop to enforce a ticket, this should cover the cost of your fine. Have a good day. P.S. Don't be a dick."
Surveillance footage led to Myers' arrest earlier this week.
Myers admitted to deputies she vandalized the SUV because the driver failed to yield to pedestrians, according to a police report obtained by The Smoking Gun.
The owner of the Kia, Debra Streets, told investigators she did not remember seeing any pedestrians in the parking lot.
Myers was charged with criminal mischief and booked into the Pasco County Jail Tuesday, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office. She was released Wednesday on $5,000 bond.
This man is just crazy...
Almost two dozen dead cats were discovered in a Tampa home, including some stored in freezers by police evicting a man last week.
While authorities tried to kick James Hopkins, 66, out of his home on Thursday, police claim he also allegedly crammed more than 30 other living cats into four pet carriers. Police found the felines gasping for air in the cages on neighboring properties, the Tampa Tribune wrote.
Inside the home, there were 22 dead cats in all, including 15 in the fridge, WTSP reported.
The confines were so packed that the cats were "unable to stand or turn around," according to an affidavit cited by the Tampa Bay Times. The rescued pets are being cared for by animal protective services, WTSP said.
Hopkins was charged with one count of cruelty to animals and 20 counts of unlawful confinement of an animal, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's office. Bond was set at $2,000, according to the sheriff's website.

'Day Of Nude On Facebook': French Users Protest Censorship With Bare-Skinned Photos a French protest aimed at challenging Facebook's unnecessary censorship of photos -- backfired when the social media site took down the event page and suspended the accounts of some involved in the online demonstration.
Launched by French photographer Alain Bachellier, the Facebook event asked its 8,000-plus participants to publish a nude picture on Monday, Le Huffington Post reports. While some chose to post of a photo of their own creation, most instead shared copies of famous works of art that feature human figures, au naturel.
Coinciding with the final day of the European Festival of Nude Photography, the Facebook event sought to fight against "the ridiculous censorship that flouts the basic rules of our freedom of expression in the name of Puritanism or the moral rules of another age," Bachellier explained on the Facebook page (which has seen been taken down), according to Metro France.
A spokesman for Facebook France told the Agence France-Presse that page was closed in the early afternoon.
"Facebook authorizes users to mobilize around common causes, included cultural ones, but it can’t authorize the cause itself to encourage users to disrespect their conditions of use," the spokesman told AFP, adding that nudity is a condition of use. "Certain publications do not fall into the artistic category and fall under pornography."
The line between art and pornography has been a point of contention between Facebook and its artistic users.

Aw....a Panda Burger!
Remember Japanese burger chain Lotteria? It previously made headlines for its crazy five-patty burger. Now it's back with another burger creation -- the Napoli Panda Burger. Don't worry -- there's no actual panda meat.
Instead, this burger features a pile of spaghetti with tomato sauce on the patty. And the bun is stamped with the image of two pandas (mama and baby?). Why, you may ask, does this burger exist? It's not immediately clear. But hey, look, it's a panda! On a burger!The burger is available with spaghetti and cheese for about $3.39 or spaghetti and an egg for about $3.59.
Dude...Your phone sucks!
Two alleged thieves might have gotten away with a stolen car, BUTT one of their cellphones helped cops CRACK the case.
Two burglary suspects in Fresno, Calif. were busted when one of them accidentally pocket-dialed 911, ABC News reported.
Nathan Teklemariam and Carson Rinehart, both 20, were allegedly just about to break into a car when a cell phone in one of their pockets called an emergency line.
The dispatcher asked, "What is your emergency," and received no response, but she could hear other voices on the lines. The operator listened for about a half an hour, and heard two male voices talking about finding drugs, then discussing breaking into a car, according to Fox 25.
On the recorded call, one voice can be heard saying "Get the bolt and give me the hammer just in case," followed by the sound of glass smashing.
The suspects then left the scene, but the dispatcher was able to figure out where the call was coming from and sent police after the pair, CBS 47 reported.
Cops say they pulled the men over and found items in their vehicle that had been stolen from the burglarized car.
The dispatcher remained on the line until Teklemariam and Rinehart were arrested. When officers told the men how they had been caught, one of the suspects allegedly stated, "This phone really called 911? Damn."
Mom...Dad...I've been taken....by stupidity!
A college student in suburban Atlanta is accused of faking his own kidnapping to avoid telling his parents he was failing a class.
John's Creek city spokesman Doug Nurse says 19-year-old Aftab Aslam bought a cellphone and texted his parents a story about being kidnapped April 27. Nurse says Aslam camped for about a week in an undeveloped area in Forsyth County, but the weather turned cold and rainy and he went home.
Nurse says Aslam left home because he didn't want to tell his parents he was failing an English class at Georgia Gwinnett College.
Aslam is charged with making a false report, false statements, tampering with evidence and terroristic threats. It's unclear if he has an attorney. He was being held without bail Friday.
A man in upstate New York got a taste of jail after being arrested for allegedly exposing his penis in a grocery store and rubbing it with a stick of pepperoni. Police arrested John Allison, 41, Wednesday night after a loss prevention officer allegedly noticed the suspect's saucy behavior on security video. “I watched him go to the back of the store near the beer and the bakery sections. The guy was standing in a corner ... I thought he was going to steal some merchandise. Instead, he undid what I thought might be his belt. I then saw him unzip his pants,” the unidentified store worker said according to the Watertown Daily Times.
Allison then rubbed a packaged stick of pepperoni on his exposed package before putting the now-tainted deli meat back on the store shelf, WWNYTV.com reported. Allison was charged with public lewdness and fourth-degree criminal mischief since the store was unable to sell the penis-rubbed pepperoni. He was taken to the Lawrence County Jail, but has since been released on a $2,000 bond, according to the International Business Times. As gross as Allison's alleged acts may sound, he's not the only person who's gotten touchy in public recently.Jared Weston Walter, 26, was arrested last week for allegedly masturbating and ejaculating on the heads of bus passengers in Portland, Oregon.
