See, regular expressions are hard

A PLANE IS ON ITS WAY TO TORONTO, WHEN A BLONDE IN ECONOMY CLASS GETS UP AND MOVES TO THE FIRST CLASS SECTION AND SITS DOWN.
THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT WATCHES HER DO THIS AND ASKS TO SEE HER TICKET.
SHE THEN TELLS THE BLONDE THAT SHE PAID FOR ECONOMY CLASS AND THAT SHE WILL HAVE TO SIT IN THE BACK.
THE BLONDE REPLIES, "I'M BLONDE, I'M BEAUTIFUL, I'M GOING TO TORONTO AND I'M STAYING RIGHT HERE."
THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT GOES INTO THE COCKPIT AND TELLS THE PILOT AND THE CO-PILOT THAT THERE IS A BLONDE BIMBO SITTING IN FIRST CLASS, THAT BELONGS IN ECONOMY AND WON'T MOVE BACK TO HER SEAT.
THE CO-PILOT GOES BACK TO THE BLONDE AND TRIES TO EXPLAIN THAT BECAUSE SHE ONLY PAID FOR ECONOMY SHE WILL HAVE TO LEAVE AND RETURN TO HER SEAT.
THE BLONDE REPLIES, "I'M BLONDE, I'M BEAUTIFUL, I'M GOING TO TORONTO AND I'M STAYING RIGHT HERE."
THE CO-PILOT TELLS THE PILOT THAT HE PROBABLY SHOULD HAVE THE POLICE WAITING WHEN THEY LAND TO ARREST THIS BLONDE WOMAN WHO WON'T LISTEN TO REASON.
THE PILOT SAYS, "YOU SAY SHE IS A BLONDE? I'LL
HANDLE THIS, I'M MARRIED TO A BLONDE. I SPEAK BLONDE."
HE GOES BACK TO THE BLONDE AND WHISPERS IN HER EAR, AND SHE SAYS, "OH, I'M SORRY." AND GETS UP AND GOES BACK TO HER SEAT IN ECONOMY.
THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT AND CO-PILOT ARE AMAZED AND ASKED HIM WHAT HE SAID TO MAKE HER MOVE WITHOUT ANY FUSS.
"I TOLD HER, 'FIRST CLASS ISN'T GOING TO TORONTO."

‘Fraudster’ bought $19,000 dump truck and booze with cash from COVID loan, feds say
... The 40 year old man was previously charged with fraud, money laundering and identity theft involving a $1.5 million scheme in 2009, prosecutors said. He was sentenced to more than nine years in prison, sent back for an additional three months and ultimately released in February 2019 with a lengthy period of supervised release.

He was still under court supervision when the alleged offenses occurred last year.

Woman’s $800 shopping ‘fail’ goes viral.

The world of online shopping can be hit and miss.

Sometimes your items come looking exactly like the advertised picture … and sometimes they look very different.

In this woman’s case, it was a bit of both with some viewers labelling her purchase trendy, while others branded it a shopping fail.

In a now viral TikTok video, which has clocked more than 2.9 million views, a woman’s friend became so shocked by her purchase, she had to share it with the rest of the world.

In the clip, TikTok user @Emareeeeeeeeeeeee, who goes by Em, filmed her mate lying down next to a pair of green pants worth $US633 ($A817).
I wonder who they were made to fit?

Cheers.

A woman who stole a forklift and was "chased" slowly by the cops down in San Diego CA, a bystander had to approach and take the key away to stop the "chase".

Giant fireworks explosion leaves 2 dead in Southern California neighborhood
The eruption occurred around 12:30 p.m. local time in Ontario, a suburb of San Bernardino, sending a large plume of smoke in the air in the middle of a residential neighborhood. At least one other home was on fire as well as several other structures, KABC-TV reported.

.. Some neighbors said the people who live at the home often set off fireworks around midnight.

"They always pop them off, random sometimes, like at night shows or a holiday," a neighbor said.

They probably will get off the hook for a majority of the fine once they file for bankruptcy like most of the scammers do.

They made 1 billion robocalls. Now Texas telemarketers get FCC’s largest fine ever
Two Texas telemarketers were given the largest fine ever by the Federal Communications Commission after they made around 1 billion robocalls, the agency announced Wednesday.

It also needs the telecoms industry/providers to add some security to plug the hole that allows such silliness...

... And to lose an insignificant part of their profits...

Man crushed to death while apparently trying to steal car’s catalytic converter: Anaheim police
The man was apparently in the process of stealing the catalytic converter when the jack failed, crushing the would-be thief to death, Carringer said.

A small scissor jack appeared not to have been secured well enough, according to Harp. He also saw a tool pouch with a cordless Sawzall near the vehicle
