I guess if you’re looking for a statue that sums up modern life, this is a pretty fair pick . . . even if it hurts my soul.

Sugar Land, Texas just put up a statue in its town square that shows two girls taking a selfie.

Apparently it was donated to the city as part of a collection of statues that show what people like to do in the town square.

Police Use an 11-Year-Old’s Drawing to Catch a Criminal

There was a string of burglaries recently in Stratford, Connecticut. One of them was at 11-year-old Rebecca DePietro’s house . . . and she got a quick look at the guy.

So when the cops asked her to describe him, she drew a picture. But we’re going to be harsh here . . . Rebecca is NOT a good artist. It was basically a lousy kid’s drawing of a guy with some scraggly facial hair.

But it was a lead. And when the cops compared it to one of their suspects last week, they felt like he looked close enough to the drawing that he was worth investigating.

He’s 32-year-old Pedro Bruno. And it turns out he WAS the burglar . . . because he confessed to everything.

The Stratford police chief says, quote, “For us to take that sketch and match it up, it was remarkable. Maybe she’s part of our next generation of detectives.” So they honored Rebecca in a ceremony on Thursday.

A "Game of Thrones" Fan Fights Off a Burglar Using a Spear

A "Game of Thrones" Fan Fights Off a Burglar Using a Spear

When 25-year-old Thomas McGowan of Wichita Falls, Texas decided to break into a trailer at a trailer park, he could NOT have picked a worse one.

Around 11:50 P.M. last Tuesday, Thomas broke into a trailer where a guy named Jimmy Morgan Jr. lives. And it just so happens Jimmy is a huge “Game of Thrones” fan. He even lives the “Game of Thrones” lifestyle.

Which means . . . he has plenty of medieval weapons in his home, including a SPEAR he keeps by his bed. So winter came EARLY for Thomas. That’s a “Game of Thrones” reference, Cletus.

When Thomas busted into his bedroom, Jimmy quickly STABBED him with the spear. It caught Thomas in the hand and shoulder . . . then Jimmy chased him out.

The police eventually showed up and arrested Thomas.
