Finding a product called Gun Oil on a Walmart gun counter doesn't sound like anything out of the ordinary, but one Florence man got a surprise when he stopped to read the label.
"It says water-based lubricant for your gun," Jamie Lee Bracey said of his hilarious encounter in a video posted on his Facebook page. "I was like, water-based? That could rust, right?"
He continued to read the back of the bullet-shaped bottle: "Long-lasting lubrication with easy cleanup. Glycerin and paraben free. Wetter, lighter feel than silicone.
"Oh that sounds good," Bracey said recounting his first glance at the bottle. "That sounds really good. I think my gun would work really good, wetter and lighter. Then I see the 'Ginseng and guarana to promote blood flow,' and I'm like, 'What?' For topical use, apply desired amount to genital areas. Boom!
"They don't know what they are selling," Bracey said of Walmart. "It's crazy."
Walmart spokesman Brian Nick confirmed Gun Oil is a lubricant sold in the store's pharmacy area. He didn't know how the product entered up on the gun counter of the Florence. He assumed customers may have relocated a few bottles there.
"We are not sure how an individual product ended up in another part of the store," he said.

A Massachusetts woman won the right to wear a metal pasta strainer on her head in her driver's license photo after claiming the headgear was a symbol of her religious beliefs.
Lindsay Miller of Lowell, Massachusetts is a follower of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, a social movement started by Bobby Henderson during a 2005 protest against the Kansas State Board of Education's decision to allow alternative theories to evolution be taught in the classroom. The church, which refers to its followers as "Pastafarians," maintains that the existence of a Flying Spaghetti Monster is just as probable as the existence of the God.
Miller had been previously been denied a license renewal in August under a Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles' policy that prevents people from wearing hats or head coverings in photos except for religious reasons. After protesting the policy, Miller was later told she could wear the silver colander on her head in her photo.

"As a member of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, I feel delighted that my Pastafarianism has been respected by the Massachusetts RMV. While I don't think the government can involve itself in matters of religion, I do hope this decision encourages my fellow Pastafarian Atheists to come out and express themselves as I have," Miller said in a statement issued by the American Humanist Association's Appignani Humanist Legal Center, which was assisting her in her efforts.
Patty DeJuneas, a member of the Secular Legal Society working with Miller, said while she appreciates the RMV's reversal, she hopes the agency will include diversity training in the future.
"The First Amendment applies to every person and every religion, so I was dismayed to hear that Lindsay had been ridiculed for simply seeking the same freedoms and protections afforded to people who belong to more traditional or theistic religions," she said.
The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster opposes the teaching of creationism and intelligent design. It maintains Fridays are holy days and reveres pirates as the original Pastafarians.

Authorities say a suspected burglar has died after getting stuck in a chimney in Central California.
Fresno County Sheriff's Lt. Brandon Pursell said a homeowner in the rural town of Huron heard someone yell after lighting a fire in his fireplace Saturday afternoon and alerted authorities.
Pursell said the homeowner tried to put out the fire as his house began to fill with smoke. Firefighters who rushed to the house used jackhammers to break open the brick chimney, but when they got to the man he died.
Pursell said the man was responsive during the rescue.
Investigators will conduct an autopsy Sunday to determine the man's identity and the cause of his death.
Blast Debris Kills Man in Bungled Condom Machine Robbery
A man died after he was hit in the head by a flying piece of metal from a condom machine that he and two accomplices blew up in an apparent robbery attempt, police in Germany said Monday.
The 29-year-old man was taken to hospital on Christmas Day in the western town of Schoeppingen, near the Dutch border, by the two other men.
All three had fled the scene of the explosion in a car, leaving behind condoms and money scattered around the gutted vending machine.

The two men told hospital officials that their friend had fallen down the stairs, injuring his head. Suspicious of their story, the officials called the police.
During questioning, police said, one of them admitted that the three had blown up the condom machine, and that their cohort was hit in the head by metal as he tried to take cover from the explosion.
Here's the videoNew Zealand Official Hit With Dildo During Interview
A protester in New Zealand threw a sex toy at the country's economic development minister on Friday, hitting him in the face during a televised interview. The female heckler reportedly threw the penis-shaped item at Steven Joyce and shouted “That’s for raping our sovereignty,” referencing the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement, before she was hauled off by police. “It would be unfortunate for being known for this incident,” Joyce said.
University of Texas Students Prepare New Fight Against Guns—With Dildos
Next August, Texans will be allowed to carry concealed weapons on public university campuses. In the wake of a spate of shootings on campus, a new group is planning a unique protest.
Texans will soon be able to carry concealed firearms into public universities. But some will come out swinging with other weapons: dildos.
On the first day of next fall’s semester, University of Texas at Austin students and supporters are planning to strap on sex toys in protest of the state’s new campus carry law, which goes into effect August 1, 2016.
The movement’s rallying cry, Cocks Not Glocks, went viral Sunday, and gun nuts are already getting heated on social media. The protest organizer, Jessica Jin, said she’s received death threats over the event and has alerted Austin police.
But Jin and her plastic willy-wielding allies see the spectacle of shaft as an effective way to show that more guns do not necessarily make for a safer campus.
“I need this proliferation of dildos to offer people a visual representation of what it would be like if we all carried guns,” Jin told the Houston Chronicle. “It should look ridiculous to you. That is the point. This is America. If guns and bloodshed don’t wake people up, a public celebration of sexuality may just do the trick.”
Jin said she came up with the strap-on idea while listening to a public radio discussion on America’s terrifying wave of school shootings. “I felt a lot of frustration at those who were still trying to explain away or make excuses for this repeated pattern of violence and said to myself, ‘Man, these people are such dildos,’” she said.
One joke led to another, and later to Jin’s discovery that rubber penises are indeed banned from classrooms. That’s when she took matters into her own hands, launching the Facebook event, Campus (DILDO) Carry, which as of Sunday night had more than 2,800 supporters.
“The State of Texas has decided that it is not at all obnoxious to allow deadly concealed weapons in classrooms, however it DOES have strict rules about free sexual expression, to protect your innocence,” Jin wrote on the page. “You would receive a citation for taking a DILDO to class before you would get in trouble for taking a gun to class. Heaven forbid the penis.”
The 24-year-old UT alumna added, “You’re carrying a gun to class? Yeah well I’m carrying a HUGE DILDO… Just about as effective at protecting us from sociopathic shooters, but much safer for recreational play.”
The campus-wide dildo carry was created Friday after one student was fatally shot and another wounded at a Texas Southern University student housing complex.
The protest announcement also comes just days after a student gunman killed nine people at a community college in Roseburg, Oregon, and a freshman at Northern Arizona University shot and killed one student and wounded three others.
On Sunday, police arrested a University of South Florida football player they believe was firing shots at a residence hall building around 4 a.m. Cops found his parked car with an open gun case and box of ammo in plain sight, according to WFLA.
It’s incidents like these that have some Texas students and faculty on edge about the future weapons policy.
Last week, a UT professor emeritus of economics resigned as a result of the impending campus carry law. In a letter to UT’s president, Daniel Hamermesh wrote, “The risk that a disgruntled student might bring a gun into the classroom and start shooting at me has been substantially enhanced by the concealed carry law.”
He added: “The issue is not people like me, I’m small potatoes, the real issue is that for Texas, for people who are thinking about coming here, they have lots of alternatives. The ones we want to hire here do have alternatives.”
The campus carry law, passed in June, made Texas one of eight states to allow concealed weapons at public universities, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.
Under the statute, only faculty, students, and visitors who are concealed handgun license holders—who must be over age 21—can carry weapons.
Claudia Garate, 27, a graduate student at UT Austin, told The Daily Beast she remembers when her campus was locked down in 2010 after a 19-year-old math major fired shots from an AK-47 before killing himself.
The arguments of gun-rights advocates, who have been trolling the Campus (DILDO) Carry Facebook page, do little to quell Garate’s fears about the law.
“The arguments that are pro-gun carrying... so many are centered around hate, misogyny, and racism,” she said. “It’s a lot of hate from these people trying to defend this law, and that’s the scariest part.”
“Because on one hand, they say they want to defend people and are obsessed with this idea of being a vigilante,” she added. “[On the other], the young woman who organized this is receiving death threats.”
Indeed, the sex-toy brigade’s social media has been inundated with abuse. “I’m guessing that the organizer of this event is a huge slut. Should be funny to watch!” wrote Ron Cox, a Facebook commenter from Mississippi.
“I’m going to post all of your pictures on Facebook so your fathers can see how their daughters act at a liberal college,” a Texan named C.W. Cooper wrote.
“Skanks all of them,” a commenter named A.J. Hands wrote. “I think the guys should all walk around with rubber boobs on and crying everywhere, no problems with that huh ladies?”
Garate, for her part, was one of many people who chimed in from Texas and abroad to embrace the event. She told The Daily Beast her pals are already talking about buying burnt orange dildos in support of the campus’s colors.
“It’s really telling about our society and the way we glorify violence but then vilify sex and sexuality,” Garate said. “How can you be outraged about the idea of people carrying dildos, but not all the people getting gunned down and the violence we see day in and day out? I thought [the protest] was a pretty brilliant move.”
Man forges boarding passes, spends 18 days in airport
A Malaysian man recently spent 18 days in a Singapore Airport, spending most of his time in plush airline lounges.
Raejali Buntu was returning from a trip abroad when he overslept in the Changi Airport lounge in China and missed his flight home. For some reason, Buntu then decided to use his computer to forge boarding passes for different airlines so he could access their lounges. He ended up spending 18 days – from Aug. 21 to Sept. 7 – living in the airport.
Buntu was arrested after an airline employee noticed he had come into the lounge for the fourth time in 10 days.

OMAHA, NE (WCMH) — Three high school freshmen are facing charges after allegedly tricking their home economics teacher into eating semen.
According to the Omaha World Herald, the boys went to the bathroom last Thursday, masturbated into containers, then mixed the semen into some frosting. They put the frosting on top of some turnovers they were making in class at Westside High School.
The teacher, a woman, tasted one of the turnovers the boys had made and noticed a strange taste. A fellow student told the teacher he had heard the boys, aged 14 and 15, talking about the plot.
School administrators interviewed the boys. Two of them confessed and one said he didn’t have the nerve to do it, according to the World Herald. Police were called and seized each boy’s frosting container.
A law enforcement official said police hoped to arrest the boys on felony charges, but could not find any state law that would make their actions felonious. They face misdemeanor disturbing the peace charges.
One student has started a petition calling for the boys’ expulsion.
The Heiress Who Buzz Sawed Her Boyfriend
Gabi P’s defense says she was a victim of her boyfriend’s sex games. He was a victim of her circular saw.
02.18.17 12:03 AM ET
MUNICH, Germany—After sawing off the head of her bound and blind-folded boyfriend in the midst of a sex game, Gabi P. just pulled a blanket over the body, closed the door and didn’t enter the room for the next few months. It was only when she went on holiday half a year later that her new boyfriend, Christian K, an aspiring techno DJ who was freshly in love with her, accidently discovered the rotting remains when dropping by to feed her cat. (German privacy laws do not allow the publication of last names ongoing court cases.)
A friend of Christian’s remembers how, several years later, Christian once broke down sobbing in the street. Christian confessed: Gabi murdered her ex-boyfriend and he’s buried in our garden.
“And you didn’t ask him any further questions?” the judge, incredulous, asked Christian’s friend in a Munich courtroom Thursday.
Last week, 32-year-old Gabi P. was on trial here for murdering Alexander H. with an electric circular saw after a fight in 2008. But what looks like coldly premeditated slaughter (Hey, let me blindfold you and get out my saw!) may have been an “act of desperation” brought on by Alexander’s insistence on degrading sex in their relationship.
At least, that’s what the defense is arguing. Most of Gabi’s own testimony is closed to the public. But from other witnesses the judge wants to know: Was Alexander very dominant with Gabi? Did he beat her up? Did he demand and pressure her into BDSM sex?
By the time police officers got around to unearthing Alexander’s remains from Gabi’s yard last year, his parents had long given up the search for their adoptive son. Yet on the fourth morning of the trial, Alexander’s mother walked up to her son’s alleged killer and shook her hand. “They’ve made up!“ an old lady in the audience whispered excitedly.
“I don’t have any hate,” Alexander’s mother told the court on Tuesday, while fighting back tears. “This is terrible for all of us.”
In court, Gabi speaks very quietly. She keeps her face covered and only looks at the judge. Her red hair dye is growing out, revealing roots that have already gone grey.
She’d started dating Alexander (whom she only refers to as “Herr H.”—Mr. H) when she was 16 years old. He, five years older, had made the moves on her. Back then, she thought it was cool “that he made such an effort.”
Once she turned 18, the childhood sweethearts moved into a cosy one-family house that Gaby had inherited, located in Haar, one of Munich’s classier suburbs. They kept bunnies and chickens in the garden. They took in lodgers. They started studying a bit (Montessori-type education for her; Japanese studies for him). Some of the German press has described them as “hippies,” but a better word might be Hänger, deadbeats. They killed time together, smoking a lot of weed and drinking a lot of wine—until she killed him.
Because, behind the free-spirited commune façade, her ex-boyfriend Alex had been “a crazy psychopath who used to build explosives,” Gabi reportedly told one of her later tenants. Testifying in court, the lodger recalled finding parts of a love swing, and other paraphernalia in the basement of what is now being called the “Haarer Mordhaus,” the death house of Haar. Alexander smoked five grams of weed a day, and Gabi smoked, too, but mainly, she said, “to numb myself.”
After a fight in December 2008, she kicked Alex out of the house. But when he tried to come back hours later, she opened the door for him.
Later in the evening, the couple went up to the attic, where they had their bed. Alexander grabbed his pair of swim goggles, taped over so that he couldn’t see, and ordered Gabi to tie him up. She did just that, and then, grabbing a circular saw, which just so happened to be lying nearby (“for renovation purposes,” according to Gabi’s defense). As the saw whirred to life, she cut into her boyfriend’s chest and through his collarbones—most likely he was dead by the time she moved the saw upwards to saw off his head.
An early photograph of the couple shows a delicate looking, bespectacled Alexander looming behind Gabi, who is confidently grinning into the camera. Perhaps Alexander really was a “sleeping pill,” completely boring, as one of his friends described him to investigators, adding that, in fact, Gabi was the one with the hot temper.
When the police showed up at her door at six in the morning in January last year, Gabi was, according to the head investigator, “considerably impressed and surprised.” No wonder— she’d gotten away with the killing for the better part of a decade.
At that point, Alexander’s parents weren’t looking for him anymore. After initially going to the police and hiring a detective, they sought comfort in a lie told to them by Gabi: that Alexander wanted to break off all contact to home and had run away to Romania with a new girlfriend.
Since the killing, Gabi continued to drift from unfinished degree to unfinished degree and to live in the attic of the Mordhaus with Christian. Her lodger said that they’d attempt various creative projects, making music or planning to build a greenhouse in the garden, but not much came of them.
Gabi and Christian had a Buddhist wedding in the back yard in 2015 (presumably not far from Alexander’s unmarked grave) and then went on their honeymoon to India. After that, according to the lodger, Gabi “came out of her shell.” She used to dye her hair black or pink and she wore pantaloons on which she’d sewn little bells.
In court, Gabi looks older than 32, although her face is round and her expression childlike. She is quite chubby, wearing a gray blazer that’s too tight and a pair of practical glasses like the ones you get at the supermarket.
Christian has a powerful build and a lot of piercings. According to the testimony of neighbors he used to practice throwing knives in the garden. Some mean-spirited court observers have said he resembles “a human bulldog.” He has already been sentenced to two years and eight months in prison for wrapping Alexander’s remains in foil and burying them in the yard.
“She was more in the background and let Christian make the decisions,” is how one friend has described their relationship. Indeed, it was Christian who, more than once, tried to creep out acquaintances with the tale of how Gabi sawed up her ex.
“We are murderers,” Christian drunkenly confessed to the couple’s lodger—the latter was less drunk, too intimidated to ask further questions (he was, he told the judge, also worried that his friendship was being “tested“), but he was shocked enough to tell his girlfriend, who told a friend, who went straight to the police.
Upon entering the house last January, cops had noted the scent of burning incense sticks failing to flush out the overriding smell of mold.
Gabi confessed to everything on the spot. She motioned vaguely at the overgrown garden and said quietly that Alexander was somewhere “outside by the compost.”

It's not yet clear whether the owner wants it back, but Limestone County authorities recovered a stolen gun when it fell from an inmate's body cavity during a search at the jail.
Jesse O'Neal Roberts, 23, of Elkmont, was being booked into the Limestone County Jail on a misdemeanor charge of public intoxication when the weapon fell from his body, said sheriff's spokesman Stephen Young.
This is a stock photo of the Jimenez .380-caliber pistol, like the one that fell from an inmate's body cavity in Limestone County.
Limestone County Sheriff's Office
"I immediately considered that he defecated on himself before noticing a familiar shape in the form of a pistol in his boxers," a corrections officer said in a report.
Roberts was arrested after midnight when deputies responded to a call about a prowler on Esten Lane. The caller found Roberts around his garage and held the suspect at gunpoint until deputies arrived, Young said in a news release.
Deputy Chad Harbin found Roberts, who was showing signs of impairment, and arrested him for public intoxication, Young said.
When they arrived at the jail, corrections officers noticed Roberts appeared to be walking "strangely," Young said.
While being searched, Roberts stumbled and the pistol fell from his body cavity, Young said.
The weapon, which was reported stolen from Florence, was not loaded. It is a Jimenez .380-cailber pistol valued at $100.
In addition to public intoxication, Roberts is charged with first-degree promoting prison contraband, carrying a concealed weapon without a permit and fourth-degree receiving stolen property. Bail is set at $7,250.
Asked about the incident, Sheriff Mike Blakely said, " 'It' happens," according to the news release.
It's not yet clear whether the owner wants the gun back, authorities said.

WACO, Texas (AP) — Police in Central Texas say a woman fell into a foul mood when a fast-food restaurant took too long in delivering her chicken nuggets and she called 911 to complain.
Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said Monday the woman wanted the nuggets given to her for free because of the delay.
Swanton says the woman was parked in the drive-thru lane at McDonald’s refusing to budge and being confrontational with employees, as vehicles lined up behind her.
A restaurant employee called 911 on Friday night to have police move the woman along and officers were responding when the woman also made her call to 911 to complain.
The unidentified woman was given her money back and told to leave, without her nuggets.
