The Pokemon Co. has made Japanese brides' dreams come true with its announcement that it is collaborating with a wedding planner to offer sanctioned ceremonies with its characters in attendance, dressed as a bride and groom.

Yes, Pikachu will stand up with you and your betrothed (as long as you go to Japan to tie the knot), and the icing on the cake is Pokemon-themed food items and a Pikachu cake topper.

Finally, United Press International reports, for your scrapbook, you'll have a marriage certificate decorated with Pokemon imagery -- surely an item you'll want to preserve in a licensed Pokemon photo frame. [UPI, 5/30/2019]



Around 1:40 a.m. on May 9, as an unnamed Cocoa, Florida, homeowner slept in her garage, a black Cadillac crashed into the structure, missing her by only inches, according to the 911 call.

The Cadillac was stolen, it turns out, and was fleeing an Orange County Sheriff's Office patrol vehicle -- which was also stolen and being driven by someone impersonating a police officer.

After the crash, WFTV reported, the imposter patrolman continued trying to pull over vehicles before speeding away.

The patrol SUV was later abandoned behind a shopping plaza in Cocoa. [WFTV, 5/9/2019]
