Favorite Weird News Story of 2008: Mom Steals Kid's ID to Become Cheerleader

Favorite Weird News Story of 2008: Mom Steals Kid's ID to Become Cheerleader

The Nebraska butt bandit proved unsuccessful in leaving his Vaseline-enhanced butt mark as CitizenSugar readers' favorite weird news story, instead losing to the mom who stole her daughter's ID to become a high-school cheerleader.

The 33-year-old Wisconsin mom faced felony identity-theft charges this year for taking her daughter's ID and enrolling in high school — just so she could be a cheerleader. She even attended cheer practices before school started and went to a pool party at the coach's house! It wasn't until the $130 check for her uniform bounced, and she only attended one day of classes, that people began to suspect.

I'm sure more weird news awaits us in the coming year — until then check out the Best of 2008.

I actually am not that mad at her because she managed to pull off looking like a teenager either that or the teenagers managed to look like 33 year olds...I'm thinking the latter.
