In front of a hardware store, Jack Vale stands with his wife, a petite brunette who is noticeably pregnant--as in, baby's-hand-hanging-out pregnant. A bundle of lumber rests on the ground; they stare at it. The dilemma: How are they going to carry it to their truck?

A bespectacled, middle-aged man walks up to them and stops. "Where you going with that?" he asks. Vale points to his vehicle in the parking lot.

The man offers to help, bending down to lift one end of the pile. Vale then takes a step back and motions to Sherry, clutching her round, round belly. "Honey," he says to her, "you can grab the other end here." The man freezes.

Live on the 55!
There's a video lighting up the interwebs of a fellow who may be the drunkest drunken driver ever witnessed. How blotto is he? He lies down in a lane of the northbound (and active) Costa Mesa (55) Freeway at what appears to be near the 5 Freeway interchange in Santa Ana/Tustin-ish--in broad daylight! He has to be dragged away from harm by a California Highway Patrol officer. And after being ordered to stand up, he quickly, well, check it out for yourself ...

You are not seeing this ...
My children stopped believing everything thing I told them once they learned Santa Claus is (spoiler alert) not real. Or was it when they discovered there were no giant ants living in the garage? Whichever the case, give it up to former Anaheim residents Chad and Jessica Collins, whose Christmas morning prank created a double negative of believability (unbelivability?) that should have their kids lapping up whatever they tell them going forward.
