• Clink couture: A store in Berlin called Haeftling (or Prisoner) sells T-shirts, hoodies, and jackets made by Texas inmates. The items are said to be made with unique fabrics (human hair?) and feature hidden pockets galore.

• Auditioning?: Perhaps in homage to Hugh Jackman's role in the upcoming, superfluous X-Men sequel, an Orlando, Florida, man is charged with attacking a police officer with knives taped to his hands.
• Figure for wrestling: Ken Kesey would have never written One Flew Over the Cukoo's Nest, done LSD, or the whole Merry Pranksters thing without wrestling.
