1. A Florida cop named Lou Caputo pulled people over this week while dressed as The Grinch . . . and he let them choose between a speeding ticket, or an onion. He’s been doing it around the holidays for years.
There’s a scene in the Jim Carrey movie where The Grinch eats a raw onion. Lou doesn’t make people eat it, but sometimes they do anyway.
2. Speaking of cops: An officer in L.A. got rear-ended in a serious crash during a traffic stop this week. But the owner of a hotel nearby was taking a smoke break . . . scaled a fence to get to him . . . keyed the cop’s radio . . . and yelled “officer down.” He stayed with him until EMTs got there, and the cop’s gonna be okay.
3. Here’s a good reason to invite your neighbors to your holiday party. A new study found getting to know them might help you live longer.
4. Someone posted a “Canadian road rage” video on Twitter. It’s a guy running up to someone’s car in a drive-thru lane . . . and clearing all the snow off their back windshield.
