BIZARRE BUT TRUE!

Globe - - FLASH BACK -

MOD­ERN-day me­dieval knight Peter Bar­clay died in a freak ac­ci­dent dur­ing a So­ci­ety for Cre­ative Anachro­nism reen­act­ment fes­ti­val in Wil­liamstown, Ky. The 52-year-old Virginia res­i­dent was rid­ing his horse and tried to spear a pa­per plate on the ground when his lance flipped and plunged through his chest!

A FRON­TIER Air­lines flight from Or­lando to Cleve­land was de­layed for two hours af­ter a woman had to be forcibly re­moved from the plane for re­fus­ing to fly with­out her “emo­tional sup­port squir­rel!” To­tally nuts!

OOPS! Cu­ri­ous twoyear-old Leo Bel­nap shred­ded an en­ve­lope con­tain­ing $1,060 in cash while play­ing in his par­ents’ home of­fice. Hol­la­day, Utah, res­i­dents Ben and Jac­kee Bel­nap are blam­ing them­selves — not their boy — for the ac­ci­dent. They taught the kid how to use the ma­chine. But not all is lost. The feds have told the fam­ily they’ll re­place the de­stroyed bills with new notes.

A BOOK checked out in 1934 has fi­nally been re­turned to a Shreve­port, La., li­brary! A lo­cal res­i­dent found the book, Spoon River

An­thol­ogy, while clean­ing his mother’s house. She’d checked it out as an 11-year-old and kept the clas­sic for

84 years.
