WTF of the Day: Kids Climb Into Car Trunk at CiCi’s Pizza

That looks safe.

A family in Florida was caught on camera putting their kids in a car trunk last week at a parking lot outside CiCi’s Pizza.

One of the customers in the restaurant captured the whole thing on video, in which you can see them children climb in like a can of sardines and lay down next to each other on their backs.

“We’re about to get shot,” says the woman filming, as she laughs at the scene.

According to witnesses, a few of the adults in the group went back into the pizza restaurant to threaten the woman.

The customers said they were too scared so no one called the police, and the Department of Children and Families has since launched an investigation.

The group also told CBS that it’s better to call authorities about an incident like this rather than shooting video and posting it to YouTube.

Surprise of the Day: Hungry Great White Shark Steals Fisherman’s Catch

A fishing charter in New Zealand recently got to experience “Jaws” in real life.

As one of the fishermen reels in his line, he notices the fish is actually half-eaten, and just seconds later, a giant great white shark pops up to finish what he started.

“Did you see that?” he shouts.

The video was uploaded to Captain Bucko’s Fishing Charters Facebook page on March 9, and in the comments the company says it’s the first great white they’ve seen in the Bay of Islands, an area off the northern coast of the country.

Looks like they’re gonna need a bigger boat.

 

Nutjob of the Day: Insane Woman Asks Rick Santorum Longest, Most Incoherent Question Ever

Rick Santorum may have said some pretty crazy stuff in the past, but that’s nothing compared to this woman.

Santorum was taking questions at the South Carolina National Security Action Summit last weekend, when a lady stepped up to the microphone and went off on the most insane rant ever.

Did you know President Obama the “Communist dictator” once tried to nuke Charleston? Yup, according this retired school teacher it’s totally true.

“He’s trying to destroy the United States,” she says. “The Congress knows this. What kind of games is the Congress of the United States playing with the citizens of the United States?”

She doesn’t seem to ever really get to the meat of her question and eventually they cut her off. But it takes a while, and Santorum just stands there pretending to listen.

“I’m not a sitting member of the Senate,” he says afterwards. “So I’m not taking blame for any of that stuff.”

Note to self: Don’t go swimming in Brazil.

Joao Antonio Cruz Junior recently uploaded a video to YouTube of him feeding some piranhas in a river.

It looks pretty calm until he tosses in a hunk of meat, and then all hell breaks loose.

Watch as these water demons tear their food to shreds, and then never go anywhere near this place ever because they will ruthlessly kill you and gnaw on your bones.

Thanks to some high winds and a shoddy construction job, a giant chunk of scaffolding came crashing down from a building this week in Portland, Oregon.

Onlookers watched and filmed in fascination as the debris teetered back and forth before eventually falling to the street.

No one was injured in the accident, but one car apparently took a lot of damage.

World Record of the Day: Watch Darshan the Eagle Fly Off of the Burj Khalifa

Talk about a bird’s eye view.

Darshan the white-tailed eagle made history on Saturday breaking the world record for the highest bird flight off a man-made structure.

A group called the Freedom Conservation strapped a Sony ActionCam Mini him and captured his 2,722-foot descent off the Burj Khalifa in Dubai to help raise awareness about the endangered species.

The charity works in partnership with both SOS (Save our Species) and UNESCO, and the stunt was also broadcast live on BBC News.

"I'm really proud of the bird,” his trainer, Jacques-Olivier Travers told Khaleej Times. "Today was really perfect. I really think that anyone who saw these shots will never think of eagles again in the same way."

This wasn’t the first time Darshan has soared off a tall building. He’s also flown from the Eiffel Tower in Paris and St Paul's Cathedral in London.

Fail of the Day: Only One Contestant Makes Final Jeopardy

Thursday night’s Jeopardy was just plain sad.

Two of the contestants, Brad & Stephanie, ended the game with negative scores, leaving only 34-year-old Kristin Sausville to play Final Jeopardy.

“This was not one of our greatest days,” said Alex Trebek at the end of Double Jeopardy.

Brad and Stephanie had -$200 and -$6,800 each before they were whisked off stage in shame.

The only thing worse would have been if Kristin wagered it all and ended up in red as well.

Kristin’s husband has also been on the show in the past, and coincidentally, this same thing happened to one of his competitors, according to People Magazine.

The best thing to come out of this? Poor Stephanie’s face.
