Thankfully nobody was injured

A Grand Rapids, Mich. woman faces up to seven years in prison after she was convicted of multiple charges Wednesday for firing a bullet into a McDonald’s drive-through when staff forgot to put bacon in her cheeseburger.

Shaneka Monique Torres, 30, ordered a bacon cheeseburger at the McDonald’s on Feb. 10, 2014 but it arrived without bacon. She complained to a manager and was offered a free burger, according to Grand Rapids local news outlet WZZM 13.

At about 3.am, Torres and her friend returned to order another bacon cheeseburger. This burger also came without bacon and Torres verbally lashed out at a worker before pulling out her handgun and firing a round into the restaurant. No one was injured.

Torres was arrested at her home about 30 minutes later.

Her defense attorney, John Beason, argued that Torres discharged the weapon by accident and there was no correlation with the bacon-less burgers.

The jury deliberated for one hour and found Torres guilty of carrying a concealed weapon, discharging a firearm into a building and felony use of a firearm.

She will be sentenced on April 21.

A Woman Squirted Breast Milk on a Police Officer and Got Charged With Assault

She is currently being held in police custody

A woman in Western Australia was denied bail on Wednesday after being charged with assaulting a police officer — with her breast milk.

Erica Leeder, 26, was being strip-searched on Tuesday after being arrested on an unspecified charge when the incident occurred, the West Australian newspaper reported.

Leeder was naked from the waist up when she allegedly grabbed her own breast and squirted milk onto the face, arms and clothes of the female officer patting her down.

The Western Australia Police Union said Tuesday’s incident was being billed as an assault because of the possibility of disease transfer through breast milk.

Leeder, who has a previous conviction of assault against a police officer, will remain in custody until next Tuesday and has been ordered to undergo a mental-health examination.

Watch a Moth Lay 2 Eggs in a Reporter’s Ear on Live TV

"This African Moon moth is mating with my ear lobe"

A reporter in the nation’s capital recently got an earful, not from a juicy source or whistleblower, but from… a moth.

FOX 5 reporter Bob Barnard says an African moon moth laid two eggs in his ear during a live shot from the butterfly pavilion at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C.

“This African Moon moth is mating with my ear lobe,” he said during an interview with Dan Babbitt, manager of the museum’s insect zoo.

He posted two photos on Twitter. A brief clip of the segment is below:

The police are searching for a driver who was spotted with cat tied to the hood of the vehicle

A photo of a feline perched on the hood of a moving SUV has gone viral, sending Ohio police in search of the catmobile’s driver.

While one witness managed to snap a few pictures of the astonishing spectacle Sunday in the city of New Philadelphia, Police Chief Michael Goodwin said no one actually jotted down the car’s license plate. The cat was apparently secured on the hood of the four-door Buick SUV with a leash.

“It’s a very bizarre case—unclear if it would violate any animal cruelty laws,” Goodwin told NBC affiliate WKYC. “It’s the public safety (that’s)…

You Can Now Buy Kit-Kat Bar Sandwiches in Japan Because Why Not

First Kitchen

Another day, another bizarre fast food hybrid

Japan — home to the the mayonnaise pizza and the macaroni, shrimp and white sauce burger — has unveiled its latest feat of bizarre fast food fusion.

Behold: the Kit-Kat bar sandwich. The creation became available last week for a mere 220 yen ($1.81) from the chain First Kitchen.

And in case you needed a closer look:

While we love the candy bar, it looks somewhat less tempting when garnished with whipped cream and orange peel between two slices of white bread. A Twix sandwich, on the other hand…

Extreme Ironing Is Back

The sport's creator is coming back after an 11-year hiatus

The man who invented Extreme Ironing is coming out of retirement.

Phil Shaw says he is again training for the sport he created in the 1990s after an 11 year hiatus, according to Britain’s ITN. For the uninitiated, Extreme Ironing involves performing the domestic chore in extreme environments like rock climbing or kayaking on rapids. Somehow, the concept briefly took off (including a world tour).

“I’d almost forgotten how people respond to it,” Shaw said. “At the end of the day, it’s a bit of fun, and people enjoy it.”

Someone Keeps Photocopying Their Cat at the University of Wisconsin Library

And they're leaving copies sitting around

College campuses are full of mysteries, and there’s a major one developing right now at the University of Wisconsin. Somebody has allegedly been using one of the campus libraries to photocopy a cat. But so far, nobody knows who is doing this.

A staffer at the university’s Badger Herald newspaper stumbled upon the following photo while studying at the Steenbock Library Tuesday:

Apparently, these photos have been spotted several times at Steenbock, which is the library for agriculture and life sciences, human ecology and, wait for it, veterinary medicine. So maybe this mysterious photocopier is actually doing this for some kind of research purpose.

So far, it looks like only one person has been committing this strange act — but there could be some copycat crimes soon.

Scarecrows Outnumber People in Tiny Japanese Village

It's 150 scarecrows vs. 35 elderly residents

A village in Japan has four times as many scarecrows as people. And it’s all thanks to one woman — and more than a decade of work.

Tsukimi Ayano said she made her first scarecrow 13 years ago in the likeness of her father as a tribute to him after his death. Since then, she’s made more than 350 life-sized dolls but, like their human counterparts, they don’t last forever, so about 150 of them remain in Nagoro, a village in southern Japan.

Still, with a population of 35, the scarecrows outnumber the people in Nagoro by a good amount, acting as replacements for…
