Dis­pen­sary Cor­ner

ARE you one of those men who has dis­cov­ered a grow­ing bald­ing patch on the top of your head?

You may have just self-iden­ti­fied as a can­di­date for a hearty Mc­Don­ald’s French fries feast.

Re­searchers from Ja­pan have named a chem­i­cal that can re­grow hair, at least in mice so far, and it’s the very one that is added to the fries in or­der to keep the cook­ing oil from froth­ing up when mak­ing those crunchy caloric catas­tro­phes.

Sci­en­tists said the next step is to try it on hu­man skin.

Mc­Don­ald’s wisely chose not to com­ment - maybe not every­one wants to be overly hir­sute.

SERV­ING jail time is meant to be re­ha­bil­i­ta­tive, right?

Per­haps some are just slow learn­ers - one 36 year-old in­mate of West­more­land County Prison, Penn­syl­va­nia, re­port­edly proved he should get back into cus­tody to get his “free” three meals a day and a roof over his head.

Mo­ments after Thomas Lee Wil­liams was re­leased on Tue, he at­tacked a woman in the prison park­ing and stole her car, com­plete with the vic­tim’s oneyear-old in the back seat.

The Tri­bune-Re­view re­ports Wil­liams crashed about 15 min­utes later and ran into the woods, where he was soon ap­pre­hended. He’s back in the clink, and vic­tim and baby are OK.
