Jealous Nun Accused of Attacking Priest

ROCCALUMERA, Sicily (UPI) -- A jealous nun allegedly torched a priest's Sicily home and threatened to kill him after allegedly finding him in bed with another woman, police say.

Sister Silvia Gomes De Sousa, 39, was accused of attacking the Rev. Carmelo Mantarro, 70, at his home in the sleepy village of Roccalumera, the London Mirror said. She was charged with arson and making threats to kill.

"I just flipped when I came to the house and found him in bed with another woman who is married," De Sousa, who is also Carmelo's cleaner, said in the Mirror report.

She was freed on bail.

Cops probe glowing gnome in front of home

TRURO, England (UPI) -- British police have threatened to arrest a man whose glowing gnome in his front yard disturbs his next-door neighbor.

The gnome, which looks like a policeman, is in an "annoying position," says neighbor John McLean, a former policeman. It also intimidates potential buyers of his $390,000 home in Treovis, near Liskeard, Cornwall, McLean says.

Police served gnome owner Gordon MacKillop, 46, with a notice for "placing a garden gnome with intent to cause harassment," the BBC reports.

The notice also accuses MacKillop of intimidating potential buyers of McLean's home.

MacKillop, a marine surveyor, denies harassing anyone. He says he bought the gnome to deter criminals after his motorcycle was stolen from his driveway.

"It just happened that it had a police uniform on," he says. "I'm not having the police telling me what type of garden gnome I can have."

Nude Driving

The Yeetle Box

Why is driving in the nude illegal? After all, it doesn't hurt anyone, does it? I have never driven nude, but I'd like to think that I had the option - especially if I'm in a hurry.

Early morning. Late for work. No time to shower or dress.

Hey! I can drive nude!

Works for me.
