No more quaffing for French cops

Speaking of drinking, officials with France's CRS riot police said officers will no longer be able to drink wine or beer with their lunches while on duty. Hubert Weigel, head of the CRS, said a 1989 directive had entitled officers to a "beer or a quarter liter (about 1 cup) of wine" with lunch, France 24 reported Thursday. Didier Mangione, a representative of the CRS trade union, said pictures of officers drinking at lunch "upset the management of the CRS far more than public opinion." He added: "Decisions like these should be based on studies of the actual negative effects. There are none."

Dentists protest no-sex rule

Some Ontario dentists have discovered to their dismay that they fall under the same "no sex with patients" decree crafted to address inappropriate relationships of patients and psychiatrists and psychologists. But the rule also makes it an offense for a dentist to have sex with a spouse if he or she is their patient. Orthodontist Randy Lang wryly suggests in the Oral Health Journal that dentists "have your spouse wear a disguise, like a moustache and beard, when she or he enters and exits your dental office," the Toronto Star reports.

She looks so sweet in that prom dress

A River Falls, Wis., woman said she spent six years weaving her daughter's prom dress out of Starburst candy wrappers. Kerrin Frey said she started work on the dress for daughter Tara, now a senior at River Falls High, after seeing moms weaving gum wrappers at a hockey game, KARE-TV of Minneapolis-St. Paul reports. Frey said she lost track of the number of wrappers she put into the project, which also included a matching vest for Tara's date. "Our theme for the prom is 'Candyland,'" Tara Frey said, "so we kind of lucked out on that one."
