EarHustle411 Funny Bone: Pups For Sale…Man Buys 2 But They Were Bears NOT Pups…D’oh!!

EarHustle411 and the writing staff can’t do anything but get our chuckle on with this one. Since when does a bear look like a puppy, well a Yunnan resident seem to not know the difference because he purchased 2 cute little bear cubs thinking they were puppies. One would have to never have seen a bear before to make this type of “mistake”. We’ve watched the video…nope…it looks like a bear but plays around like puppy.

Wang Kayui made the purchase from a man in a Vietnamese village and we guess the light bulb turned on when the pups began to grow and grow and grow but not before he noticed the “pups” ate all of his chickens that were kept outside. Kayui learned that the pups he bought were actually rare Asian Black Bears and not puppies . Welp…he learned a “beary” good lesson and thankfully he did the right thing and took the “pups” to the Yunnan Animal Rescue Center.

Truly one hilarious EarHustle411 Funny Bone story for the books!!

Officials say a drone has dropped a package of drugs into an Ohio prison yard while inmates were outside, sparking a fight.

The package was dropped July 29 at the Mansfield Correctional Institution, about 65 miles southwest of Cleveland. A spokeswoman for the Department of Rehabilitation and Correction tells the Mansfield News Journal it contained almost a quarter of an ounce of heroin, over 2 ounces of marijuana and more than 5 ounces of tobacco.

Officials say video footage shows the drone over recreation yards immediately before a fight began. An investigation determined the drone dropped a package intended for an inmate on the north recreation yard, and it was thrown over a fence to the south recreation yard.

The inmates were separated and searched. No injuries were reported.

Man From Washington D.C Kidnapped At Gun Point And Sexually Assaulted By A Group Of Men

A man was forced into a van and sexually assaulted by a group of men, D.C. police said.

The victim was walking on 14th Street in Northwest when a suspect with a gun forced him into the van. It happened before dark Friday night in the Columbia Heights area.

He was kidnapped and sexually assaulted, according to authorities.

“It represents a change in what’s going on out here on the streets that we have a group of people who are specifically looking to target, kidnap and sexually assault men. That is a very, very profound event and it’s a change in what we’re used to investigating,” said Delroy Burton, President of the D.C. Police Union.

Police are looking for seven suspects. Only one can be specifically described as a Hispanic man in his 20s, about 6-foot-1, with short black curly hair. He was wearing an orange shirt, gray sweatpants and carrying a gun.

This is the second crime with this pattern in the District in less than a year.

On December 31, 2014, a man was walking nearby businesses in Southeast at 10 a.m. when a van pulled up and four men with guns grabbed him. They drove to another location where they raped him.

“It changes the game as to who needs to be cautious — outside of the correctional facility setting — about sexual assault,” said Burton. “I think before men didn’t even think of the possibility — walking up and down the street — and had to be guarded like we teach women to be guarded, but now that is a possibility.”

Burton said investigators are likely looking at all possible motives, including gang initiations, earlier jail activity and a new breed of sexual predators on the streets of D.C.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 202-727-9099.

Detroit Woman Sues TV Show Empire For $300 Million Claiming Cookie Lyons Is Based On Her Life

A Detroit woman is suing Empire and claiming that she is the actual, real-life Cookie Lyon.

Sophia Eggleston has filed a $300 million lawsuit against the hit show and says that much of her life mirrors the character Cookie. She wrote her “early drug lifestyle” in a memoir titled The Hidden Hand, which she claims Empire borrowed liberally from to make the iconic character.

According to the copyright suit, filed in the US District Court in Michigan, Eggleston met with screenwriter Rita Miller in 2011 and gave her a copy of the memoir, which Miller said she would pitch to Lee Daniels during a phone conversation several months later.

Instead, in 2015, Empire came out, and Eggleston said the similarities were uncanny.

Eggleston said that Cookie “was similar in behavior, style of dress, and background.” She went on further to say that she was “dismayed to see the various similarities of events and characters . . . so numerous and specific, especially . . . Cookie Lyon, that independent creation was obviously impossible.”

“Cookie was a drug kingpin that went to jail. So did plaintiff Eggleston. Cookie is released from jail confinement and immediately places a hit on a certain individual. Plaintiff . . . actually was jailed for doing the actual hit on a man.”
