Things that make you go...W...T...F?

Bizarre, bizarre, bizarre.
A woman who made news around the world when she had five pups cloned from her beloved pit bull Booger looked very familiar to some who saw her picture: She may be the same woman who 31 years earlier was accused of abducting a Mormon missionary in England, handcuffing him to a bed and making him her sex slave.

A paper trail of court documents and jail booking information uncovered by The Associated Press suggests 57-year-old dog-lover Bernann McKinney is Joyce McKinney, who in 1977 faced charges of unlawful imprisonment in the missionary case. She jumped bail and was never brought to justice.

What isn't crazy about this story? The dog's name of Booger was certainly weird. The cloning was strange. The fact that she was so easily recognized after 31 years is unusual. But I think the fact that a woman made a man her sex slave against his will puts this story over the top. The very possibility in the days before Viagra seems beyond logic.
