I grew up in South Haven, Michigan.  Gotta love the lakeshore. Still feel a yearning for the beach, pretty much daily.  Moved to Grand Rapids to go to Calvin College. Fell in love with GR and have been here since! (Go Beer City USA!)   Big fan of crime TV, the '90s (scrunchies! Saved By the Bell!), my own rude and feisty cat, the beach (you may have thought I covered that already, but I really really love it, OK?), reading,  people watching, drinking on patios, playing the most inappropriate cards in Cards Against Humanity, and my dear dear family.

Two Michigan Teens Banned From Showing Baby Bumps in Yearbook Photos

Yearbook-- it was a huge deal when I was in high school. You wanted to get the most people to sign your yours. There were the classic "Stay cool!" and "Have fun over summer break!" messages. You also hoped your crush wrote something really sweet like "Had fun sitting next to you in Chemistry"-- right? Not to mention the photos! You wanted to look super awesome, with perfect hair and a great smile. (So your crush could totally be like "Wow, great pic." Haha!) Well, two teens from Whitecloud Michigan won't have pics in their yearbook this year. Why? Their photos were banned for showing their pregnant bellies.

Kung Fu Grandpa Practices Nunchuck Skills in Grocery Store Parking Lot

Sometimes when you have an awesome skill, you just gotta show it off-- wherever you might be, like say, in a Food Lion parking lot in Richmond, Virginia. An older gentleman decided that was the perfect place to demonstrate his skill. Which is? "Nunchucking". (Not sure if that's the proper term, but what he's doing I certainly wouldn't call "karate".)

21-Year-Old Michigan Man Fakes Documents to Play High School Football

Taking a page right out of the "Never Been Kissed" playbook (Drew Barrymore? "Josie Grossie"? C'mon! You know you saw that movie.)  a 21-year-old Lansing man forged documents to pose as a high school student. James Nash transferred to Mount Pleasant High School during the first week of school, claiming to be 17-year-old Javier Jones. Now why would anyone ever want to go back to high school? Cafeteria food? Book reports? To scam on underage, naive high school girls? Well maybe, but mostly James Nash wanted to play high school football.

Petoskey Batman Busted Again– Girlfriend Petoskey Batgirl Shows Support on Facebook

 

The last we'd heard of Petoskey Batman (Harbor Springs man, Mark Wayne Williams), he was auctioning off his Batman suit to cover the legal fees he acquired after his arrest for scaling a building in downtown Petoskey. Apparently the Ebay route isn't working out for him. That, or the lure or crime fighting is just too strong,  because Petoskey Batman has been busted again. State troopers arrested the 33-year-old Saturday night after he refused to leave a crime scene.  He was wearing the Batman suit, of course.

Cats Do Not Like ‘Gangnam Style’ … In Case You Were Wondering

Here I thought I was the only one unimpressed with Korean pop sensation Psy's "Gangnam Style". Oh no, turns out kitties are not fans either. Now I can't tell you why a video exists of cats listening to "Gangnam Style", but I can tell you I thoroughly enjoyed it. Well, aside from having to listen to the song again... but it's totally worth it to watch these adorable cats writhe and grimace and generally show their disdain for it.
