Wait a minute....the judge ordered the contractor to split his share with the original owner, but not the woman (who claims 60K of it was "stolen")?

On a side note....why does all this stuff happen in Ohio? Is it something in the water?

Isn't that where cobweb mad and the lugnut looney were?

meanwhile.....the ladies husband "Ralphie"while undergoing a routine vasectomy...was found to have over $66,233.00 stashed in his B-lls which he had cleverly had a "pouch" surgically installed in 1989. The startled physician, DR . Mortimer Oldtimmer found the crisp 100 dollar bills embedded in the mans scrotum and promptly applied the cash to his medical bills, thus saving the insurance company over $922.34 in processing charges and fees. The man , when fully awake and made aware of the "scrotum windfall" ...replied "I didnt remember I had all that cash stored in my scrotum"

My fiancee and I know a guy who was the executor of his grandmother's estate. When she died, he found $12,000USD in bills dating all the way back to the 1930's. My fiancee, myself and others advised him to take all the bills to a coinshop to get appraised and insured from theft and damaged.

the idiot instead turned more than $10,000 over to his late grandmother's landlord to take care of it. No surprise when the guy promptly disappeared out of country without a fowarding address.

And all his life, this moron has had the nickname of "Dumb Donald" since childhood, he never could figure out why.
