Okay, it isn’t the real Mitt Romney, but a man wearing a Mitt Romney mask, robbed a bank in Virginia this past week. The man took money from all five tellers before fleeing. A A strange fact, this is the same bank where someone robbed it wearing a Hillary Clinton mask, two years ago.
Two elephants drank vodka to survive, after the trailer they were in caught fire in freezing cold, Siberia. Their handler, quickly bought two cases of vodka, and mixing it with water, had the elephants drink it. In the end it probably saved their lives.

A New York tradition at Christmas, isn’t exactly the first thing you think about during the holidays. Saratoga Sweets, in Halfmoon, New York carries on a Christmas tradition, of pink peppermint pigs.

TNT placed a red button in the middle of a quiet town square with a sign that encouraged passerbyers to push the button for drama. A courageous man on a bicycle pushes the bottom and what happens next is a full production that includes a street fight, a gun standoff and a bikini-clad chick on a motorcycle. Well, sex and violence sell right?
