Sheyla Hershey, a model in Brazil, is trying to set the world record for largest breast implants.

The last Straw: Darryl Strawberry is penning a memoir, slated for release in 2009. Let’s hope it’s not scratch and sniff.
Tastycrooks: An Ohio judge could send a man back to prison for sharing a snack cake with an inmate sans permission. That would put the ‘treat’ in “unfair treatment.”

Keep the change: A man in Illinois has asked the courts permission to legally alter his name to “In God We Trust.” That’d be so money (though he’d know it).
Barre all: Performing his own “March of the Penguins,” Nathan Smith of the AHL’s Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins was charged with indecent exposure after running down a Pa. street naked, acting on a bet. We’d hate to see his idea of a free skate.
Putting the ‘bum’ in “album”: A man in Texas tried to cash a check for $360 billion, which he said was to start a record company with. He was taken to Sing Sing.
Charlie horse’s ass: Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis, speaking to a group of alumni in Pa., remarked, “I could get hoodlums and thugs and win tomorrow.” You mind picking up some tact and humility while you’re out, Charlie?
