Someone in northern England saw a woman drive by on Sunday covered in BLOOD, and called the cops to report an assault. They also said the guy she was with had been BITING her.
So the cops started searching for them, and managed to pull them over. And sure enough, there was blood all over them, and the guy had some around his mouth.
But the woman HADN’T actually been assaulted, and everything was fine. It turned out they both work as movie extras . . . and they were on their way to a job where they had to play ZOMBIES.
So all the blood was fake, and they had special contacts in to make their eyes look weird.
The cops ended up letting them go, but the photo they posted on their Twitter page is making the rounds online.

NICK JONAS was bummed when the “VMAs” snubbed him this year, and he Tweeted his disappointment. But apparently there’s no bad blood on either side because he’s agreed to perform at this year’s show.
He’s performing “Bacon” with TY DOLLA $IGN. The show is happening on Sunday, August 28th.
Someone recently asked a neurologist to name the top five things we should be doing to keep our brains sharp as we get older. Here’s what he said . . .
- Keep socializing. You’re less likely to suffer memory loss as you get older if you have a social life. So pick hobbies that involve other people, not just stuff you do by yourself.
- Challenge your brain. Read, play games, and do crossword puzzles. And try something NEW every once in a while, like learning a new instrument or another language.
- Don’t stress out too much. A ton of studies have found that too much stress can have long-term effects on your memory and your decision-making skills.
- Exercise. It improves blood flow to your brain, which helps you stay focused. And it also helps with memory.
- Stop eating empty calories. Your brain works best when your diet is high in protein, healthy fats, and complex carbohydrates, which you can get from whole grains.
And a new study that came out this week found that even if you’re not overweight, cutting calories can improve your mood, your quality of sleep, and your libido.
Dr. Patricia Quinlan
It’s been decades since “MacGyver” was on TV, but we’re glad to see people like this keeping its spirit alive . . . in the best way possible.
Dr. Patricia Quinlan of Center Valley, Pennsylvania was on a United flight from Philadelphia to San Francisco on Thanksgiving, when a 59-year-old man sitting in front of her fell out of his seat. When he didn’t get up, she realized something was wrong.
She used the plane’s defibrillator to figure out his heart didn’t have a blockage . . . but found his pulse was off, his blood pressure was dangerously low, and he was seriously dehydrated. So she had to use what was available to save his life.
She used her HAIR TIE as a tourniquet on his arm . . . used some little airplane bottles of whiskey to disinfect a needle . . . hooked him up to the plane’s IV bag . . . and had passengers shine the flashlights from their phones to give her enough light to work.
The guy finally came to after about 20 minutes, and he was able to walk off the plane when it landed in San Francisco.
how to make fake blood
If you wanna up your Halloween game with some fake blood this year, you don’t have to go out and buy it. You can make buckets of it with just four ingredients that you might already have in your kitchen.
Here’s what you need . . .
Eight ounces of water . . . 16 ounces of powdered sugar . . . a one-ounce bottle of red food coloring . . . and a tablespoon of cocoa powder to make it a nice DARK red.
That’ll almost fill a pitcher, so cut it down if you want to make less than that. But if you mix those four things together, you should end up with something that looks just as realistic as the stuff they sell at stores.
Plus it’s non-toxic, so you don’t have to worry about your kids eating it.
And even if you have to buy everything, it shouldn’t cost more than ten bucks to make.
