MIR­A­CLES do hap­pen! Paula Stan­ton, 60, lost her wed­ding band while clean­ing a toi­let at her Somers Point, N.J., home nine years ago — and got it back when lo­cal san­i­ta­tion worker Ted Gogol found it in a sewer line while in­spect­ing a man­hole 400 feet away from her house!

GREG PHILLPOTTS ru­ined a hol­i­day cel­e­bra­tion when fluid from his nose dripped into a turkey din­ner he was pre­par­ing. De­cid­ing enough was enough af­ter suf­fer­ing a runny nose for five years, Greg saw a doc­tor, which saved his life. Turns out the snot was fluid leak­ing from his brain! Sur­geons closed the hole and all is well!

KRIS­TEN YAL­DOR’S dream African sa­fari turned into a night­mare when her ca­noe was at­tacked — and cap­sized — by a mother hippo in Zim­babwe! Once Kris­ten hit the wa­ter, the en­raged 3,000-pound beast grabbed her right leg and pulled the Florida tourist into the river’s depths. She man­aged to es­cape and swim to safety with a bro­ken fe­mur.

THE Ohio Pork Coun­cil went whole hog by in­stalling a ba­con vend­ing ma­chine at Ohio State Univer­sity’s Col­lege of Food, Agri­cul­tural, and En­vi­ron­men­tal Sciences. The con­trap­tion sells ready-to-eat strips for $1 each. The pro­ceeds are go­ing to the school’s meat sci­ence pro­gram.
