Man sentenced to jail for sucking woman's toes

60 days seems a little harsh. She had to know something was fishy when a total stranger asked her to model shoes. In Walmart, no less...

Child welfare official accused of nudity

[quote][b]nowheregirl[/b] - If they were adults, it would have been funny.[/quote]
