The skinny: Where intimacy is available in an artsy truck

Only in San Francisco

Where intimacy is available in an artsy truck

The hookup truck is ready for business in San Francisco. The art installation on wheels will offer couples the chance to convene in a room that is designed to accommodate "intimate relations," artist and owner Spy Emerson told CBS San Francisco. In other words, sex. The website says the box truck is a car service, like a mobile hotel room, available for short-term rentals. "This is a game for adults who want to play with sex," Emerson said. "You have to be nice, and cool. No drunks." In case you were wondering, Emerson said her lawyer has checked and the hookup truck is legal.

A taste for cash

That fork appears too big for waffles

When a man walked into a Waffle House northeast of Atlanta, he carried a rather big fork, a pitchfork to be exact. And, no surprise, he was not much interested in waffles. Police in Norcross say Jeffery Wooten, 50, entered the diner Thursday night and forced people toward a back room. He then grabbed the cash register. WSB-TV reported that he dropped the pitchfork while carrying the cash register back to his truck.
