Cleaners at the Museion modern art gallery in Bolzano, Italy thought a recent art installation was trash.


The modern art piece entitled "Where are we going to dance tonight?," which features the leftovers of a dance party, was inadvertently tossed in the rubbish bin by cleaners.

From International Business Times:

Meant to represent consumerism, hedonism and the blending of revelry and politics of 1980s Italy, the installation depicted the aftermath of a party, with empty champagne bottles, confetti and cigarette stubs scattered all over the floor.

So, when a cleaning lady attended to tidy up the premises, she assumed the items was a pile of rubbish. Gallery curator Letizia Ragaglia said the mistake was partially due to the fact that the employee was new at the museum and thus unfamiliar with its exhibitions.

Luckily, the trash bags had not been thrown away when the museum discovered the mistake.

Stupid is not a strong enough word to describe these alleged jewelry thieves.

Police say a man and woman were arrested this weekend in Palm Springs after stealing a bracelet and ring from an art studio. And how were they caught?

They signed the guest book.

Megan Ohara, 24, and David Ziskoski, 19, were arrested for allegedly stealing the jewelry, which was valued at $6,000.

Here's how it went down, according to the Sun Sentinel:

When confronted, Ohara told police she had the items in her purse. She gave the officers the ring and bracelet, and subsequently, she and Ziskoski were arrested.

As officers arrived back to the gallery, the artist said he had noticed something in his gallery's guestbook. Someone had written multiple fake email entries into the guestbook, including "," according to the arrest report.

Two of the fake emails included the name "Meg" and one included Ohara's phone number next to it. Also on the page was a drawing of male genitalia and a woman's face labeled as "Meg."

Someone get these two a Darwin Award, stat!

Bad Joke of The Day: IHOP Tweets Horrible Joke, Immediately Regrets It

Let's stick to making mediocre breakfast, IHOP. Social media isn't for you.

The pancake house is in deep syrup after making a joke on Twitter Sunday that fell...flat.

The reaction to the joke was swift, which likened a stack of pancakes to a women with a flat chest.

But this isn't the first time IHOP has tried variations of misogyny. It looks like the company tweeted about a "butter face" back in March.

It didn't take long for IHOP to tweet out an apology. It almost seems like they knew the backlash was coming.

Giant man-toddler and "Most Hated Man in America" Martin Shkreli just can't stop digging that hole.

The guy who raised prices of a life-saving cancer and AIDS drug by over 5000 percent is really, really mad right now.

Why is he mad?

Because Bernie Sanders wouldn't accept his campaign donation.

He wasn't feeling the Bern, so he went and fractured his wrist.


A reverse image search shows that his "fractured wrist" is just a stock image.

What do you have to say about that, Mr. Shkreli?

What century are we living in again?

A newspaper ad in New York is causing outrage because of two words that were included, a harsh reminder of discrimination many people still face when applying for jobs.

'No Haitians' the newspaper ad states, looking for a "laid back nurse."

Berthilde Dufrene, Founder of the Haitian American Nurses Association of Rockland County, addressed the controversy in a Facebook post.

"This is not just a disrespect of the Haitian nurses, but disrespect for the nursing discipline and the entire community that have benefited from the services and care provided by the Haitian nursing professionals," she wrote.

New York Senator David Carlucci has said he will ask local and federal departments to start an investigation into the ad.

The company who posted the ad, Interim HealthCare, has not released a statement. But the corporate Twitter account obviously had better things to talk shoehorns.

Something kinky is happening at a Target store in California.

Video of an X-rated recording playing over the store's intercom was posted on social media yesterday, showing customers and employees freaking out while trying to figure out what was happening.

"Ohh, yeahhhh," the recording blasted throughout the store while customers rushed to cover children's ears.

Gina Young, the mother of two young twins, was shopping at Target when she captured the video.

"People offered to help me cover my twins' ears," she told FOX 9. "Others threw their stuff down and walked out. Employees were running around everywhere."

The recordings reportedly continued on-and-off for about 15 minutes. And Target has said they are investigating.

Dashcam videos capture a lot of close calls, but this has got to be one of the most unique.

YouTuber Paul Ellis uploaded footage today of a hot air balloon traveling dangerously close to Marine Drive in Southport, England. You can see the balloon lose height and creep way too close for comfort toward busy traffic.

Luckily for Paul, the balloon operators and everyone else on the road—the hot air balloon manages to escape any collision with vehicles.

This tale is a perfect example of why drivers should invest in a dashcam. Hot air balloon collision will sound pretty suspicious your insurance company.
