A California woman tried to slide down the chimney into the house of a man she had met online and dated a few times. Genoveva Nunez-Figueroa, 30, was arrested Sunday after screaming for help when she got stuck. Firefighters needed about two hours to free her, and she later was arrested for illegal entry and providing false information.
“How many times does this have to happen every year for somebody to realize you can’t break into somebody’s house sliding down their damn chimney,” Dennis said.
“Weren’t you like 8 years old when you realized that there was stuff in the way?” Callahan said. “I mean, you saw plenty of Christmas shows that Santa could get down there, but after like fourth grade you realized you couldn’t do it.”
The man said Nunez-Figueroa had tried to break into his home before, climbing on the roof.
Said Dennis: “They went out on six dates and then he said, ‘Uh, I’ve had enough, I don’t want to see you anymore.’ And she said, ‘No, I’m going to be up on your roof.’ ”
Said Callahan: “She didn’t want to try like a window or a basement door?”
– Former White House intern Monica Lewinsky gave her first public speech Monday at a conference in Philadelphia and talked about her 1990s affair with President Bill Clinton and the public humiliation she endured when it was revealed.
“Sixteen years ago, fresh out of college, a 22 year old intern in the White House — and more than averagely romantic — I fell in love with my boss in a 22-year old sort of way. It happens,” Lewinsky said. “But my boss was the president of the United States. That probably happens less often. Now I deeply regret it for many reasons, not the least of which is that people were hurt. And that is never OK.”
Lewinsky said she is striving to end cyberbullying, claiming that she was the first person to have her reputation destroyed via the Internet.
Said Callahan: “I’d rather be with the chick in the chimney.”
