• A Florida police officer is nursing a shameful hangover after reports he showed up at a Mother’s Against Drunk Driving conference totally wasted.

    Officer Michael Szeliga was set to be presented with an honour from the non-profit at their Fort Lauderdale conference in July. The award, ironically, was for making more than 100 DUI arrests on patrol. He was also expected to attend two days of DUI law enforcement training, but boozing seemed to have gotten in the way.

    According to a Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office internal affairs investigation, obtained by WFLA, Szeliga arrived to the ceremony too drunk to walk. When a police chief confronted him, instructing that he stay away from the 200-person banquet, Szeliga allegedly hurled “disrespectful” comments at him.

    Apparently, his binge had started earlier in the day, when Szeliga decided to forgo DUI enforcement training. He had attended a session in the morning but left to drink a few coke and whiskey cocktails and spend time at the

    If you’ve ever looked at someone’s face and decided you wanted to punch it you might be in luck, albeit also have serious anger issues.

    A beta version of a new app called Rumblr is slated to hit the market on Monday.

    The app bills itself as a resource “for recreational fighters to find, meet, and fight other brawl enthusiasts nearby.”

    Don’t actually want to get roughed up yourself?

    The app also lets you browse and attend fights other users have set up.

    Rumblr, described as “Tinder for fighting,” pulls up another user’s profile picture and gives you the option to fight or pass.

    If both contenders decide to spar, users move on to the verbal rounds where you can trash talk your potential opponent before scheduling the fight or dropping out.

    As mentioned, there’s also a browsing option where you can search a map for fist icons. That’s where a fight is already scheduled and you can go and stand in someone else’s corner.

    More than 78,000 people have already registered for beta access to the

  • There are some weirdly themed restaurants out there, but a new eatery in Moscow might take the cake. 

    Complete with toilets for chairs, urinal shaped bowls and a ‘poop-art’ décor, Crazy Toilet Café in Russia’s capital says it will likely cater more towards one-off diners looking for a novelty meal rather than repeat clientele, according to the Guardian.

    “We think people will walk past, think ‘what on Earth is that?’ and then come in to check it out,” general manager Inga Yaroslavskaya told the paper. “It’s not everywhere you can eat good food from a toilet bowl and drink from a urinal at very reasonable prices.”

    If you’re thinking the lavatory theme must end with the decorations, think again.

    There’s reportedly a three course lunch meal consisting of a ‘brown and creamy’ mushroom soup served in a toilet bowl, ‘swirled sausage and three piles of steaming mashed potatoes’, and, of course, chocolate pudding for desert.

    All for just $30CAD.

    The idea isn’t actually as unique as you might

  • An American tourist had a terrifying encounter with a great white shark when it sped up and bit into the cage he was diving in.

    Spencer Riley was on his honeymoon, cage diving off the coast of Gansbaai in South Africa, when he filmed the shark ramming into their cage, The Sidney Morning Herald reports.

    “That should not have happened really, they don’t like the shark to get too close to the cage but there was low visibility and the shark came at the bait extremely fast,” Riley told 9News.

    In the video, the great white shark is seen chasing a string of bait. It then comes out of nowhere at high speed and locks its teeth around the cage’s bar, almost touching the divers inside.

    “Holy s**t!” one of the divers is heard saying just before the shark swims away.

    Riley and the other divers are heard laughing as they come up to the surface of the water after their heart stopping ordeal. 

    “It was not too scary because it happened so fast, and then it was pretty exhilarating,” Riley told 9News.

  • As delicious and tempting as they may be, cakes can be pieces of art as well. 

    Just look at the some of the entries from the Cake International competition held near Birmingham, England last week, where a life-sized Prince George went head to icing-covered head with Disney’s Maleficent.  

    All mildly-creepy creations aside, one cake took, er, the cake for most magical baked good. Baker Christine Jensen from Peboryon Cakes showcased a levitating wedding cake complete with an edible Yoda.

    “Because we do both wedding and sculptural cakes we wanted to showcase both,” Jensen told UK news agency SWNS. “And it seemed that the best way to do that was to use a little bit of the force.”

    To maybe dispel some of the magic, here is a video of the staff of Peboryon Cake’s setting up the display. As for that top levitating layer, there may be a little bit of wire holding it up, but who are we to question the force?

  • You know those embarrassing, yet, adorable home movies your parents took of your seventh birthday and that first trip to the dentist? Well one creative dad has put all those shaky videos to shame. No offense.

    In a video titled “Godzilly – King of the Daughters!” Youtube user SillySocks dressed up his little girl as a tiny (but of course, menacing) Godzilla, recording her stomping through a makeshift Tokyo, breathing blue fire on her attackers – that is until she is intercepted by the equally-adorable Mothradog.

    Despite mom’s exclamation of “No one’s gonna watch that!” at the end, the video has amassed over 40,000 views on Youtube since it was posted last week.

  • When it comes to math tests, demonstrating how you got the answer is a key part of the process.

    One mother posted a photo of her son’s answer on Reddit and there’s been plenty of admiration for his matter-of-fact response. 

    “Bobby has four dimes. Amy has 30 pennies. Which child has more money?” reads the question.

    He answered ‘Bobby’, and then was asked: “How do you know? Show your thinking.”

    The six-year-old boy drew a stick figure with a thought bubble that read “Bobby.”

    His mom commented that she was going to keep the test. "The plan is to hang onto this until he can fully appreciate the humor."

  • The sitcom basically writes itself here.

    There’s an adorable new duo at The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya, and they will absolutely melt your heart.

    Meet best friends Kiko and Loboito.


    Kiko, a one-month-old giraffe, was found alone and brought to the trust by Kenya Wildlife Service when he was a week old. Shortly after, he was joined by a three-week-old bull elephant named Loboito.

    In the video by Barcroft TV, the youngsters appear to be inseparable, with Loboito never far behind older (by a whole week) and wiser Kiko.

    The video explains that the pair will eventually be split up when they are older and have learned enough to return to the wild. 

    In a perfect world, these two will meet as adults, like a much less tragic Fox and the Hound situation.

    The latest fraud to hit York Region involves casting away ‘evil spirits’ and robbing victims of thousands of dollars in cash and valuables. 

    Police are warning residents against the scam in hopes of preventing any more victims falling prey.

    At least two citizens in Markham, Ontario, have fallen victim to the evil spirit blessing scam, according to the York Regional Police press release.

    The scam’s suspects speak Cantonese and appear to be approaching elderly Chinese women on the street. 

    They offer to remove the evil spirits surrounding the victims through a simple blessing ritual and warn them that a family member will die within three days if the spirits are not removed.

    To complete the blessing, the victim is told to go home and return with a bag filled with all their cash and valuables.

    Once they return, the suspects ask the victims to wash their hands with blessed water. In the meantime, they switch the victim’s bag of valuables with a bag containing items of little or no value.
