Our nation's policemen have to respond to crazy situations most people couldn't even dream of, unless they're the Dream Police, in which case, they're sort of constrained by that parameter. For dispatches to the fuzz so bizarre they'll live inside of your head for some time, check out Funny Police Reports.
A compendium of, well, funny police reports pulled from the web and local newspapers around the country, just-launched FPR's got the distinction of being the only humor site run by a CU prof (Dr. Peter McGraw, a Ph.D in Quantitative Psych!) and his cohorts in the Humor Research Lab (HuRL), a group "dedicated to the scientific study of humor", as they apparently found Hippocrates' findings about either phlegm or black bile inconclusive. Choice gems suggesting "a lab that studies humor should be able to put together a humor site" include:
"This Is Why I Never Call"
"A mother reported receiving annoying collect phone calls from her 28-year-old son, at 1:56am, none of which she accepted."
"Thirsty Fire Fighters"
"Charges won't be laid against several volunteer firefighters accused of stealing beer kegs from a hotel as it went up in flames."
"An officer bumped into a woman in front of the station who reported having a particular medical problem that 'only occurs when she is in Massachusetts,' at 4:43am."
"Anyone Got Some Weed Killer?"
"Report of a large bush in the middle of Tedesco Street, at 7:39pm."
If the project gets enough love/traffic, they hope to use the data in humor studies to explore what people find funny, meaning while users think they're just browsing/commenting on the site, their brains are actually being subjected to a Cheap Trick.
