Sure enough, they found a dwarf dressed in all purple standing in the middle of E. 26th Street.

A woman told police she has started getting text messages from a woman who thinks she is running around with her man.

With some curse words added, the woman sending the texts told the other woman to "stay away from my man."

The woman getting the texts sent back this query, "What is his name?"

The accusing woman replied, "Joe."

The woman getting the texts said the only Joe she knows is her uncle.
