Incredulist: Bears in the city and one massive pumpkin
Last Updated: 260 days ago
Our list of truly incredible, incredibly true stories for October 2 includes:
BEARS IN THE CITY: In Totowa, New Jersey, you’ll find people, cats, dogs, goldfish…and bears. Yes, that’s right. Bears. A group of bears descended on a pear tree and had a harvest festival of their own.
“I was in complete shock. We couldn't believe it,” said one resident. “My wife was in the car driving and she screamed as soon as we saw the bears. They found the pears and started shaking it and eating the pears one by one.”
Eventually the bears went back in the woods, leaving stunned residents to wonder -- if bears like pears, do gators like taters, do apes like grapes, do deer like beer, and do cheetahs like cheetos?
EXPENSIVE JAVA: You won’t believe the price of one coffee maker made by Blossom. It’s a whooping $11,000. It's a lot of money, but the Blossom One is state-of-the-art. It even has a WiFi connection.
HEAVY PUMPKIN: Doctors say Americans are getting bigger, but they've got nothing on pumpkins. A Rhode Island man at the Massachusetts State Fair set a new world record with the first pumpkin ever to crack the one ton mark.
For growing the giant 2,009 pound pumpkin, Ron Wallace won $15,000 -- and he'll be eating pumpkin pie till he's orange in the face.
