ORIGINAL POST, AUG. 27, 6:31 A.M.: Rancho Santa Margarita lawyer/dentist/real-estate saleslady/Three Wishes Keks Orly Taitz is hailing a federal judge granting her motion to subpoena four Border Patrol agents to testify today in her "emergency" challenge to the U.S. government transporting undocumented immigrants from South Texas to California and other states.

But the Queen of the Birfers may have tipped off in a letter to the office of vehemently anti-immigrant Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Huntington Beach) that she "shopped" for a Brownsville jurist most sensitive to her cause.

Some headlines just write themselves. Anaheim Police fired non-lethal rounds into the windows of a red smart car before removing a despondent man with a handgun last night.

OC Deputies Union and Fallen Cops Foundation Defend Raffling Off Semiautomatics: Update

See the update at the end of this post where fallen cop foundation and Orange County deputy union officials agree raffling off semiautomatic weapons is no big whoop.

AR-15s like this once fell under the federal assault weapons ban.

ORIGINAL POST, AUG. 21, 6:39 A.M.: Cop killers can be people or they can be fictional characters in songs or they can be an AR-15 rifle and Beretta 92FS pistol, which is weird because Orange County sheriff's deputies have been helping raffle those off as prizes (not the people or song characters but the semiautomatic rifle and handgun; please keep up!)

16-Year-Old Boy Badly Burned Doing the "Fire Challenge" (a.k.a. Lighting Himself on Fire)

Play with fire and you might get crispy.
A 16-year-old Santa Ana boy was left with scars that will last a lifetime after setting himself on fire to settle an online dare, according to fire officials.

The unidentified lad is believed to be the latest victim of the "Fire Challenge" that is spreading on social media like wild you-know-what.

It involves putting an accelerant--in this case nail polish remover--on your chest, flicking your Bic, having it catch fire, recording the human fireball, dousing oneself and then posting the video online.

But in some cases, the person on fire does not get to the water or wet blanket or fire extinguisher in time to prevent major burns, which is what happened to this teen in the 900 block of South Standard Street Thursday afternoon.

Neel Kashkari, California's GOP Nominee for Governor, Gives Homelessness a Spin: VIDEO

Another homeless nutcicle on the street or California's next governor?

The last time we told you about Neel Kashkari, the Republican nominee for governor out of Irvine was marching in a gay pride parade. Now, the investment banker and former U.S. Treasury Department official says he spent a week on the streets acting as if he was homeless.

Call us when you're crossing the border with those children and we swear we'll come out and shoot it, Neel.

The Gathering of the Juggalos' Night Court Helps Wicked Clowns Bury the Hatchet (NSFW)

A young juggalo faces the punishment for his crimes.

Those in the outside world tend to view the Gathering of the Juggalos as a lawless festival of debauchery, with apparently violent clowns--"gang members," even, if you ask the U.S. government--running rampant and chaos ruling the day.

In actuality, this notion is far from the truth. Juggalos in attendance not only consistently treat one another with respect, but even have an institutionalized arbiter of disputes for when conflict does arise.

Have an issue with a fellow juggalo? Take them to Juggalo Night Court.

UPDATE: Creepy Dolls Appear on Doorsteps in San Clemente: What Does it Mean?

Orange County Sheriffs' Department
Why is this happening?! Why is this happening?!

UPDATE JAN. 26, 4:37 P.M.: Check the end of the post, they found who was doing it, and it was a false alarm.

Before reading this story you might want to lower the lights a little, and maybe even crawl into bed. Wait, no--this isn't a ghost story. This is real life! Over the last several days, 11 families in the San Clemente community of Talega opened their front doors to find a single, porcelain doll on the porch. Each family has at least one young daughter around 10 years old. Eerily, they said the doll dropped at each porch shares a resemblance with that daughter.

Justin Bieber Lookalike Wannabe, Turned Down for Surgery in Newport Beach, Can Still Get Help

Categories: Bat Shit Nuts, TV

How do you make yourself into a dead ringer for Justin Bieber? It's so EZ!

A 33-year-old songwriter who has spent more than $100,000 on surgeries to look just like Justin Bieber was--and here is the real news--turned down for more procedures by a famous Newport Beach plastic surgeon. (Honestly, walking around Lido Village and seeing over-inflated ladies with Joker smiles had me convinced cutters in town turned no one down.) But while we agree with the decision of Dr. Terry Dubrow, husband of Real Housewives of Orange County cast member Heather Dubrow, our take is based on economics, not medicine. Lissen up, Toby "True Belieber" Sheldon: You can still look just like your Canadian idol for the low, low price of $5.87.
