INSTANT KARMA: WALLET THIEF'S WALLET.... MISSING

 

An Idaho man suspected of stealing a wallet from the desk of a prospective employer has been arrested after calling police to report that his wallet was missing.

 

Boise police realized the man who reported the missing wallet matched the description of the suspected wallet thief, so they arrested the 25-year-old on suspicion of burglary and grand theft.

 

Police believe he tossed the stolen wallet, but used a credit card to buy tobacco at two stores. It was when he was leaving the second store that he thought he may have dropped his own wallet.

 

Police recovered the credit card and the stolen wallet.

 

Officers suspect someone else found his wallet. It has not been recovered.

 

Mayan relic sold for $4 million is a fake?

 

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – A sculpture of a Mayan warrior that sold for more than $4 million at a Paris auction house this week is a fake, Mexico's National Institute of Anthropology and History said.

 

The masked, stone figure, sold by a private collector, was billed as an impressive piece of Pre-Columbian art and was believed to be a unique work dating from around 550 to 950 A.D. It sold for 2.9 million euros ($4.1 million) on Monday.

 

But Mexican experts at the institute who studied the auction catalog said the piece, a warrior holding a shield and weapon and wearing a turban-like hat, had been made recently and was carefully carved to give an ancient appearance. Another 66 pieces in the auction also were fakes, they said.

 

"The figure tries to recreate the Pre-Columbian features of the Maya region in southeastern Mexico but the height, the posture of the flexed legs and the boot straps are not characteristic of this culture," the institute said in a statement.

 

Mexico's Foreign Ministry said it had contacted the French government prior to the auction to alert it to the fraud.

 

HORRIBLE MOM/ROLE MODEL)... WOMAN GIVES HER 8-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER BOTOX INJECTIONS

 

 

A mom in San Francisco injects her 8-year-old daughter with Botox to give her an edge in beauty pageants.

 

The 34-year-old mother of the year buys the Botox online, and injects it into her little girl's forehead, lips, and around her eyes.

 

She also takes her to get waxed so she can keep her from growing hair when she hits puberty.

 

Mom says what she's doing for her daughter now "will help her become a star." She's proud that she's one of the youngest people in the world to get Botox.

 

Her daughter is so used to it she now looks for wrinkles and complains when she sees them.

 

FYI, it's not illegal for the girl to get Botox.
