Starting in February, 20 volunteers took to the streets and kept an eye out for irresponsible dog owners.

No pooping

Any time an individual would allow its canine to defecate without picking up the waste, the volunteer would engage him or her in small talk... learn the name of the animal... look it up in the local date base and - bam! - they would come up with a home address.

Swiffer is very sorry for one of the most sexist ads in recent memory.

On Monday, the Internet took notice when the company created a marketing campaign for its latest cleaning tool based around Rosie the Riveter.

Yes, the same Rosie the Riveter who has served as an symbol of female independence since World War II.

In the spot (below) Rosie is holding a Swiffer steamer, the message as clear as it is inappropriate according to critics: a woman's place is not actually in the factor, it's in the kitchen.

"It was not our intention to offend any group with the image, and we are working to make changes to where it is used as quickly as possible," the company said in a statement soon after complains poured in.

There's no truth to the rumor, however, that Erick Erickson was actually behind the ad.

A student at Central Kitsap High School in Silverdale, Washington says she was turned away from her senior prom last month due to the size of her breasts.

According to Brittany Minder, she showed up for the event in a low-cut gown and was told she wasn't permitted to come inside because it was too revealing.

"In my opinion, I feel that it is because I'm bigger chested and there is more cleavage that you can see, and there's nothing I could really do about that," Minder told KATU.

The school's dress code permits a strapless dress of this nature… as long as cleavage, midriff and lower back areas are properly covered.

So this happened in Florida over the weekend...

A llama named Scooter broke out of his yard in Tallahassee, forcing his owner to call the police and the cops to spring into action.

But it isn't easy to corral an escaped animal of this size and nature, as efforts to haul Scooter into a truck were meant with a Justin Bieber-like reaction: he spit on all who dared touch him.

On April 26, numerous deputies wrote to Menino and complained that the chief gave up control of the investigation s to federal authorities. In part, this memo read:
