Mongo
Memphis' most famous alien, Robert "Prince Mongo" Hodges, has a reason to celebrate. A two-year legal battle with Volusia County, Florida, where Mongo keeps a uniquely decorated vacation home, has ended happily for all parties. For the time being, anyway.

The terms of the settlement, according to the Daytona Beach News-Journal: Mongo can have two clotheslines, providing they are used to actually dry clothes and are "not filled with decorative bras and underpants left flapping in the breeze for weeks or months." He can also have his artificial sand dunes and as many as three small yard signs but only two permanent. Mongo can also display 10 four-foot figures for 30 days at a time four times a year.

Weird Arkansas
Prepare to wince. An Arkansas man, who sleeps naked, is paralyzed, and has no feeling from the waist down, awoke last Monday to find the stray dog he'd taken in only a week earlier eating one of his testicles. I told you you were going to wince.

KAIT-TV reported the news in graphic detail, noting that the unidentified man was awakened by a "burning" in his mid-section and looked down to see the small, white, fluffy, blood-spattered dog between his legs.
