What a crappy exhibit

MILWAUKEE - An exhibit traveling to the Milwaukee Public Museum this fall concentrates on something few like to talk in depth about: poop. 

The exhibit is called 'Scoop on Poop' and it's based on a popular children's book by the same name. 

It gives visitors an idea of what poop is and how animals and humans use it. It features artifacts, models and interactive exhibits. 

Visitors can listen to an animal's digestive system, learn the language of poop in countries around the world, examine fecal samples in a veterinarian's lab and compete in dung beetle races. 

It will run from September 28 through January 5, 2014. 

TME That museum is a dump anyway.

Yippie yi yo

LONDON, Ky. - Who let the dogs out? An eastern Kentucky sheriff says it was an intoxicated neighbor. 

Laurel County Sheriff John Root says in a statement that a 47-year-old London woman told deputies she used a blanket to break the glass on her neighbor's front door so she could let two small dogs out of the residence. 

The statement says Regina Napier was 'highly intoxicated on controlled substances' on Friday evening when the incident occurred. Jail records show she is charged with burglary and public intoxication, but they don't indicate whether she has an attorney. 

There was no word on why someone let the dogs out.

Long-distance loving

GREENWICH, Conn. - An anteater has given birth at a Connecticut conservation center, prompting officials there to wonder how the mother conceived. 

Officials at the LEO Zoological Conservation Center tell the Greenwich Time they had removed the only male anteater from the enclosure in August, long before the six-month gestation period for baby Archie would have begun. 

They feared that male, Alf, would kill another baby in the pen. 

That left the mother Armani, and the young female, Alice, in the enclosure. 

But little Archie was born in April anyway. 

Marcella Leone, founder and director of the conservation center, suspects this might be a rare case of delayed implantation, when fertilized eggs remain dormant in the uterus for a period of time. 

TME We will never question an anteater's manhood again.

Aerial assault

DULUTH, Minn. - Two bald eagles locked together by their talons in a midair battle survived a crash landing onto a runway at a northeastern Minnesota airport. 

Minnesota Department of Natural Resources conservation officer Randy Hanzal says the adult eagles couldn't separate Sunday before slamming into the tarmac at the Duluth International Airport. 

Hanzal tried to take the birds to a Duluth wildlife rehabilitation center. He covered them with blankets and jackets on the back of his pickup and held them down with webbing straps. En route, Hanzal says, he heard a ruckus and saw one bird jump out and fly away. 

The Duluth News Tribune says the other eagle made it to the rehab center and is now being cared for by the University of Minnesota in St. Paul's Raptor Center. 

TME There has never been a more metal flight delay.

Hold the picklesor else!

QUINCY, Mass. - Police say a Quincy woman is facing charges for allegedly punching a restaurant worker who put 'too many pickles' on her steak and cheese sandwich. 

Transit police say 49-year-old Tina Drouin ordered the sub from Nathan's Famous Hot Dogs in the Quincy Center subway/commuter rail station on Saturday afternoon. 

Police say Drouin started loudly complaining, used a profanity, and demanded a refund. 

When she was refused, she allegedly punched the worker in the face and pushed two large jars filled with pickles at the woman, knocking her over and shattering the jars. 

She fled, but was followed by the worker, who held her until police arrived. 

Drouin told police the worker put 'too many pickles' on her sub. 

She'll be summoned to court to face an assault charge. 

TME God help you if you forget the mustard.

Up a tree

NEW YORK - Authorities say a New York police officer who tried to rescue a cat stuck in a tree got caught himself and needed a little help getting back down to the ground. 

The Fire Department of New York says it happened Monday afternoon in the borough of Queens. 

A call came in that a man attempting to get a cat out of a tree had gotten stuck. Fire department personnel used a bucket ladder to get the man and the cat down. 

The fire department says the man is a police officer. 

The New York Police Department has no comment. 

TME That's what he gets for going out on a limb like that.
