Bit later than usual to this, but I did it for January, and I did it for February, and I did it for March, and I did it for April, and I did it for May, and I did it for June, and so I pretty much had to do it for July, too, right?

2. A man who was arrested for DUI said his dog was driving.

8. A man sued a hospital saying doctors mistakenly amputated his penis.
