Another weird week just passed. Every Sunday, Mad Mike’s America shares tidbits of oddities and bizarre events we collect and bring to you.
A Mad Mike’s America article published in late September reported on a Janus cat—a feline with two heads.
Weird Lil’Bit is a Janus cat. When he was born seven months ago, he had to be fed milk with an eye-dropper. He had four eyes when he was born, but the two in the middle converged into one giant cat’s eye.
He also has two distinct noses and mouths, resulting in double the meowing when he’s hungry. Scientists believe he has two brains because when one face sleeps the other remains alert and awake. When he gets a cold, only one of his noses runs.
The anchors on this broadcast reported on this weird “ick” factor. Jerry Grant from Arizona is suffering from Clostridium difficile which can lead to diarrhea, bloating, and even colitis. He and his wife stumbled upon a cure—his ailment can be cured by transferring his wife’s fecal matter to him. About 500,000 people suffer from this ailment, which can be fatal.

Rickie La Touche—also known as Rickie Nehls—claimed that his wife, Pornpilai Srisroy, damaged the Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker memorabilia that he had built up since he was child. During a subsequent argument over the figures, he suffocated his wife then ran off sobbing to his mother who lives nearby.
A relative discovered Ms Pornpilai lying dead on the couple’s double bed covered by a duvet with a pillow over her face. La Touche later told police that his wife had smashed up his Star Wars collection as part of a campaign to make his life “hell”. He claimed his wife had once hit him with a pool cue and threatened to kill him when he was asleep and then “cut him up and eat him”.
When police arrived, La Touche stated
My wife is from Thailand and she keeps threatening to leave. We argued and she said she was going to make my life hell. She’s put me through it before. I couldn’t let that happen again. I then just remember getting up from on top of her. I think I’ve choked her. I felt faint and was sweating,” he said. “That must have been the point I just flipped. I don’t know how long I had hold of her
The baggage fees the airlines are charging these days brought out the weird in Teri Weissinger—and a baggage check clerk. She arrived at San Francisco International Airport with nothing but an airline ticket, two bags and $30. When she tried to check in with US Airways, the airline demanded a further $60 fee to check in her bags.
Not only did Weissinger sleep in the terminal for five days, US Airways charged her an addition $150 because she changed her flight.
In just three months, US Airways made $1.4 billion in checked baggage and ticket change fees.
A Hoboken man denied knowledge of a stolen cell phone before it rang in his pocket. According to police reports, a 55-year-old man reported his cell phone and charger were stolen while he was asleep at Hoboken Terminal, reports said.
He saw the man he believed stole the phone sitting inside McDonalds and reported him to the police. The police called the cell phone hidden by Antonio. The phone rang in Santiago’s right coat pocket, reports said. When the alleged thief pulled the phone and charge from his pocket, the victim made a positive identification.
