TODAY'S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .

    Matthew Todd, 24, who was being treated following a traffic accident, but had no interest in sticking around the emergency room, so he stole an idling ambulance and sped away. He ended up running off the road and getting the ambulance stuck. Not one to give up, he headed to a nearby barn where he tried to saddle a couple of horses. Failing this, he stole an SUV and promptly crashed it. He then found a second SUV and drove himself home. The next morning, still suffering from the effects of the initial car crash, he drove the stolen SUV back to the emergency room for treatment. The staff recognized him and he was promptly placed under arrest.

AND THEN THERE'S .....

    Lesya Toumaniantz, who got her new boyfriend's name tattooed on her face as a pledge of her love to him. What's odd, it wasn't a little tattoo, this one was completely across the front of her face, like a football helmet face-guard. Oh we forgot to mention, she had just met her new love 24 hours earlier. Her new love, a tattoo artist, did the work himself.

OR HOW 'BOUT .....

    An Anti-DUI volunteer, who was arrested for... you guessed it, a DUI. Ram Ride is the program that gives safe rides to students who've had too much to drink. Colorado State University police arrested the Ram Ride volunteer and charged him with DUI, speeding, and possession of marijuana. Even odder, there was another Ram Ride volunteer in the car at the time.

OKAY, ONE MORE .....

    Barbara Aiello, 71, who may win Grandmother-of-the-Year honors for booting her grandson's sleepover guests into the cold at 4:30 a.m. The Connecticut grandma was fed up with her grandson's boisterous sleepover party and came into the room in a fit of rage. She told the boys, ages 10 and 11, to "Go home" and ushered them outside where the temperature was 23 degrees. Aiello claimed she didn't realize how late it was when she kicked them out. She now faces two counts of risk of injury to a minor.
