Well folks, are ya confused enough yet?
Then read on with these files from the Naked News Department:
Authorities in Minnesota say three would-be robbers picked the wrong time to pocket-dial 911.
Blue Earth Sheriff’s Capt. Rich Murry says a dispatcher took the call early Thursday morning and heard two voices on the other end.
Murry says what she could hear of the conversation suggested the men were involved in a theft or burglary.
Murry says officers were able to use the 34-minute call to figure out where the men were. They arrested them and a third suspect.

KTOE-AM reports Murry says officers found that a North Mankato supply business had been ransacked, with cash and other items taken
Well boys and girls, this also qualifies these two as our “Losers of the Day!”
Nearly two weeks after a winning B.C. Lottery ticket worth $50 million was finally turned in — close to a year after it was purchased — the mystery around who will get the winnings is still far from being solved.
The Lotto Max ticket, which was purchased in Langley, B.C., was turned in 12 days ago, just before the weekend deadline which would have nullified the ticket.
But far from the typical news conference — with the lottery corporation presenting a beaming winner to the media to describe their plans for the newfound wealth — the B.C. Lottery Corporation has so far declined to name the winner and is refusing to do interviews on the subject.

He added: “There’s a reason why some lotteries require the winner come forward — because it is the most effective advertising going. The media can put a face to that big check and that’s going to sell more tickets for the lottery guys,”
Adding to the mystery, a Shoppers Drug Mart employee named Gayleen Elliott filed a lawsuit last year alleging a co-worker had purchased the winning ticket for a workplace pool and was concealing it.
However, he says he simply forgot to buy tickets for the pool that week.
Now, the lawyer representing Elliott says the lawsuit is still underway and there are no plans to drop the suit now that the ticket has been handed in.
On the contrary, CTV Vancouver’s Shannon Patterson reported, the lawyer said he had been in contact with the lottery corporation and the matter is still being investigated.
Well folks, when 50 mil is involved…………….., nothing is ever simple!
A one-year-old puppy in Winnipeg is being hailed a hero after its barks drew attention to a house fire and triggered rescue efforts for the people sleeping inside.
Paige Kozak and her husband Kevin were sleeping in a St. Vital home, when their one-year-old puppy Luna let out some urgent barks in the middle of the night.
untitled“She’s not a barker, she’ll bark once a week when she gets really excited about the ball but it’s an unusual circumstance. So I definitely think she must have smelled smoke,” Kevin told CTV Winnipeg on Friday.
Three astronomical events happened Friday, and depending on whom you talk to and how superstitious they are, it was either going to be a day filled with good luck or a pretty terrible one.
imagesA rare solar eclipse/supermoon/vernal equinox combo took place, with prime eclipse viewing spots in Europe, much of northern Africa, western Asia, and parts of the Mideast and Newfoundland, reports the Guardian—which notes that “some Christian ministers have viewed the rare collision of three celestial events as the beginning of the end of the world.” Some of the other legends and superstitions regarding the event:
  • Mythology from a variety of cultures promoted the idea that an eclipse meant dinnertime for malevolently ravenous creatures. In China, a dragon was believed to eat the sun, while Hindu legend has the sun eaten by the floating head of the demon Rahu, the Christian Science Monitor notes. Other sun-eating predators: Korea’s “fire dogs,” Vietnam’s space frogs, and the Vikings’ sky wolves, per National Geographic.
  • It’s also apparently time to beware of everyday dangers: A long-standing superstition is that pregnant women are especially at risk during an eclipse and that harm may come to their unborn children, the BBC has noted. In India, meanwhile, some folks fast because they believe food prepared during an eclipse is poisoned, per the Guardian.
(Well, so far everything seems to be O.K. -Ed!)

And finally:
imagesRunning the Boston Marathon is a dream for runners all over the world. Next month, Tracy Garbutt will be among the tens of thousands to actually do it.
The 43-year-old Winnipegger is also running the world’s most prestigious race even though Garbutt is legally blind.
“It is like the holy grail of marathons and … it’s something that once you start putting that goal in mind, it’s like wow, you just want to get there now so bad,” he said.
(Garbutt was in the race last year, but had to quit when he ran into a telephone pole!)
