Some girls...

You know when you're out partying all night and then you decide to go for just one more [fermented apple], but you were drunker than you thought, and you fall over...

Full sad/cute/funny story here (or click the picture). Thanks, BBC!

...and get stuck in a tree?

I hate it when that happens.

Stupid Swedish elk. Time to cut back.

Bury the evidence. No, really.

On Monday there was a freak accident involving a high-speed train in China and a lightning bolt. A communication issue led to another high-speed train colliding with the fried one and lots of people dying (and even more getting severely injured).

So the authorities dug a hole and covered it up.

See more photos in the Time gallery.

And people are ticked. Check out the YouTube video before China gets a hold of it and takes it down. (Can they do that on YouTube? I know it's already pretty hard to find on Chinese sites...)

China pulls this crap all the time, but this was the last straw for a lot of folks.

Good for them!

Dinosaurs eat man. Woman inherits the earth...

This guy in Vermont earns a high-five for his 122-foot wooden dinosaur.

Neighbors got grumpy about his giant work of art. But he got to keep it when the District Environmental Commission No. 3 said the dinosaur "won't destroy or imperil wildlife." (Cue *headdesk*.)

Her name is Keisha!

See. This is why nobody likes them no-good outta-towners.

Bangor Daily News is a pretty reliable source for the chuckle-seeker.

But the best part might be the picture for this related article at the bottom of the page.

Just think: someone's probably related to that guy.

This little piggy...

Rory Freedman (of Skinny Bitch fame) alerted her Facebook followers of this post on The MFA Blog:

(The Yonhap News Agency has more here.)

So when the pigs suffocate and die, the disease just disappears, like magic, forever? It doesn't mess with the soil or groundwater or anything?

Well, he does!

The Bangor Daily News (of Bangor, Maine) has this gem of a story:

(For bail and court hearing information, click the image.)

She was "allegedly intoxicated," which makes me think she's kind of an angry drunk. Happy drunks are so much more fun, aren't they?

Break the rules in China, and that's what you get.

This is old news now, but a friend just told me about it today when I told him that I heard the zoo in our city starves their big cats so kids can have a guaranteed fun time feeding them dead animals from the end of a stick.

(China Daily doesn't have much else to say about it, but you can click the image if you want.)

I doubted both stories until now.
