Friday weirdness

Your weekly dose, via Electricity and Fruit:

A Hilton Head Island man confused bales of pine straw with a dead woman, and tried to resuscitate them early Tuesday morning, according to a sheriff's report.

The 39-year-old called deputies to the parking lot of Hilton Head Cabanas, 32 South Forest Beach Drive, at 1:49 a.m., saying he had just tried to perform CPR on a dead woman, according to the sheriff's report.

They arrived to find him talking to a large bale of pine straw.

When asked where the woman was, he pointed to the straw, the report stated.

The man told deputies five people knocked on his door and wanted to party. A woman asked him to come outside, and told him there was a dead woman laying in the parking lot, the report stated.

Deputies think the man had been drinking. The report says he thought Tuesday was Halloween and he had two empty bottles of bourbon inside his home.

Very Jonathan Strange, eh? Clearly the man has gotten entangled with fairies...

I love, love, love the understatement of "Deputies think the man had been drinking." It makes the article.

I also think believing Halloween occurred much more recently than it actually did is my favorite potential heavy-drinking side-effect ever.

...I misread; I thought this happened sometime after Tuesday and not on Tuesday. It's still awesome to be mistaken about when Halloween falls, but it would be more awesome to think it had happened just a few days ago.
