Here’s the thing – Tennessee has a TON of weird and crazy things happening on the reg that will never be jotted down into a history book. Why? The stories are weird, inappropriate, or just downright crazy. Which is why we’ve found a solid chunk of them to give your day a bit more excitement. Curious? Take a look!
11. Two headed snake. TWO HEADED SNAKE.
Weirdly enough? There are quite a few stories of double headed reptiles in Tennessee. Is this a thing...?
10. Wear clothes when you operate a chainsaw, folks.
If you're operating a chainsaw, don't you think you'd like to be clothed while doing so? Well, one Tennessee man decided quite solidly against it. He was arrested for using the tool while stark naked.
9. What do YOU bury in your backyard??
One Memphis man found TWENTY gravestones in his backyard, supposedly removed from the local cemetery and hidden. Apparently, the former homeowner worked for the cemetery. Eerie find, though!
8. Always runnin'.
One criminal decided to book it away from an officer, and after being caught said, "I always run from the law." Interesting thing to tell that now frustrated, sweaty officer.
7. Arby's art heist…
One Tennessee lady decided she wanted the artwork from a local Arby's - so she stole it. Try the Frist next time, lady.
6. DNA marking at Subway...?
Just a heads up - they're testing out DNA marking at Knoxville Subway shops. No stealing, folks!
5. This baby doll was a bit too real - In a good way.
You know those little baby dolls that high schools send home with unsuspecting students? Well, one woke its owner at the perfect time. When the La Vergne teen woke up in the middle of the night to tend to the plastic doll, she realized the home was on fire and was able to save her family's life by alerting them of the danger.
4. Birthday party crimes are a NO.
One Memphis man decided it was a good idea to pull a gun when the party he was attending ran out of birthday cake. Not a good idea, man - that escalated quickly.
3. Bongo Java made the papers with a cinnamon bun.
When Bongo Java figured one of their sweet buns had Mother Teresa's face, it became a media sensation. Unfortunately, it was later stolen off the premises.
2. Cheeseburger rage - it's a thing.
A drunk couple of folks decided to throw bricks at a Murfreesboro McDonald's when they felt their cheeseburgers didn't have enough onions.
1. One park ranger was a little TOO dancy.
A ranger at Coolidge Park in Chattanooga actually lost his job for "unbecoming" dancing in the park. I have a feeling we're glad we missed that one...
Here’s your plan: don’t end up on one of these lists. It’s just not worth it.
