Dawn's Plot Swap
Have a plot? Leave one.
Need a plot ? Take one.
Here is what I have for you this week. 
Just general weirdness.

AMERICAN narcotics agents have intercepted two parcels of marijuana valued at $70,000 en route to one of the nation's biggest publishers, St Martin's Press
I bet if they dug to the bottom they would find a query letter and manuscript. Just a hopeful author trying to stand out in the slush pile. 
This gives new meaning to "things that go bump in the night". 
A Malaysian shoe store has launched a promotion that is too bizarre to make up: "Get a pair of shoes from Shoes Shoes Shoes and get a free man."

There are just so many ways this one could go. It is actually an online dating site...kind of. 

So, swap with me! What kind of weirdness is going on in your world these days? 
Need more weirdness?

This week, we are entering the World of Weirdness. Some of these stories have interesting characters to inspire you. Some of them have plots that will make you shake your head and said, "Huh?".  Some of them have both. 
Like this one:
An Upper East Side couple grieving over the loss of a stuffed toy monkey they’ve raised like a son the past decade went bananas with joy Saturday night after being reunited with their beloved Beanie Baby. 
(Really, you need to read the whole story to grasp the, um, originality of these people)
Three people in Beatrice, Neb., were charged after a woman allegedly asked her friends to stab her so she could avoid a probation hearing, 
(I have some great friends. Amazingly enough, I don't see any of them doing this for me.)

Doctors were baffled when a British man told them, "I can hear my eyeballs moving." But they finally diagnosed that Stephen Mabbutt had a rare ear condition in which sounds inside the body are heard very loudly, 
(I have no comment on this one.)

So, swap with me! What kind of weirdness is going on in your world *real or imaginary*?
