Well, that win was short-lived.

A woman identified only as "Chantelle" by an Australian radio station made one very costly mistake after winning $825 on a 100-to-1 horse race bet.

She took a selfie with her ticket and posted it to Facebook. DOH!

To her dismay, someone saw the barcode of the winning ticket in her photo and used it to claim her winnings.

"To the low life who is obviously my friend on Facebook and used my photo to claim our winnings. You're a massive d*ck. You ruined my day," she wrote on Facebook.

She told the radio station that police were able to track where the money was claimed, so she might get some sweet redemption.

But you kind of have to give it to the person who claimed the cash.

That was genius.

Wisdom teeth are a girl's best friend?

California couple Lucas Unger and Carlee Leifkes think so. Unger used his very own wisdom tooth set into a ring for the couple's Halloween proposal.

The two love birds met at a music festival in Canada earlier this year.

"So incredibly excited to marry my best friend, the man who knows that his wisdom tooth means more to me than a diamond," Leifkes wrote on Facebook.

"We have never been the "traditional couple," why the heck start now?"

Indeed. No need to start now.

Censorship of The Day: London Coffee Shop Forced to Replace Brilliant Yet "Offensive" Sign

A coffee shop in London has been forced to remove a sign displaying the shop's name from outside its building.

But the shop's response was rather cheeky.

The coffee shop was rebranded more than a year ago from the more boring "Bermondsey Street Coffee."

Then the owners received this letter this month from the lawyers of the owners of the building.

Seeing as they had no real choice in the matter, they replaced the sign.

Here's the new sign.

Effective? Yes.

Just as funny? Nah.

History Lesson of The Day: Academic Claims Australians Have Accent Because Settlers Were Always Drunk

Have you ever wondered why Australians don't finish the ends of their words and generally sound like they're super chill?

It's because their ancestors were super chill. And super drunk.

Dean Frenkel, a communications expert at Victoria University in Melbourne, claims that early Australian settlers from Britain were big fans of alcohol. So much so, that they developed a slurred accent that lives on today.

"Our forefathers regularly got drunk together and through their frequent interactions unknowingly added an alcoholic slur to our national speech patterns," he wrote in The Age.

"For the past two centuries, from generation to generation, drunken Aussie-speak continues to be taught by sober parents to their children."

He says the average Australian only speaks at two-thirds capacity and with improper articulation.

What does the queen have to say about this lazy approach to language?

Whoops of The Day: A Giant Blimp is on The Loose Somewhere Over Pennsylvania

Someone has got some explaining to do.

A giant U.S. surveillance blimp came untethered today around noon and is now floating 16,000 feet over Pennsylvania. Oh, and two F-16s have been deployed to monitor the situation.

The blimp is part of the Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Netted Sensor System (JLENS), a radar system used to pick up aerial threats.

But now it has become a threat itself to the good people of Pennsylvania, who are being advised to call 911 if they spot the monstrosity.

And because people on the Internet are horrible, they made some dumb jokes about the blimp.
