From News of the Weird (link is on left sidebar):
Officials in Apex, N.C., finally confiscated the 80 sheep that David Watts had long been keeping in his home as pets (he slept upstairs, they downstairs), with the final straw coming when some of the sheep wandered into the local cemetery and munched on fresh floral arrangements. The town had apparently tolerated Watts's eccentricity for years because of his pleasantness. Said a next-door neighbor, "(Officials) felt like he was (merely) living an alternative lifestyle."

Jon Stewart (The Daily Show) on Randall Tobias, implicated in the D.C. sex scandal:
"Tobias had been running the Bush administration's Global AIDS Prevention Program which emphasized abstinence, because there's nothing the administration can do that is not ironic."
And now for something completely different.
