Back in February, world-famous street artist Banksy posted several new pieces in Gaza, including a giant kitten, to try to draw some attention to the region.

His public work tends to be snatched up pretty quickly by people looking to make some serious cash. They can typically be sold to collectors for hundreds of thousands of dollars. His “Mobile Lovers” piece went for more than half a million dollars last year.

One man in Gaza probably wishes he had been told that before he let an original Banksy go for a measly $175.

Rabie Dardouna, who owned the door and rubble which Banksy adorned with a piece called “Bomb Damage” (above), pawned it off to a man named Belal Khaled for just the value of the metal. His house was destroyed during an Israeli attack last year.

“I did not know that it was this valuable. I heard it can be sold for millions,” Dardouna told The Guardian. “Now I want the door back.”

Khaled claims he only purchased the door to “protect its artistic value” and isn’t looking to make money off the deal.

He added that he might one day consider displaying it in a gallery to “speak about the suffering of Gaza and the agonies of war.”

Can you spot the man in the photo above?

Inept car thief Jose Espinoza was running from the cops in Madera, California last weekend, when he came up with what he believed was a genius escape plan.

He spray painted himself black as a disguise. Needless to say, it didn't work, especially considering he was standing next to a white wall, as Corp. Josiah Arnold told CNN.

The Madera Police Department later posted his mugshot to Facebook, with this amazing caption: "The camouflage was ineffective."

Your move Florida Man.

It’ only been a few days since a pilot drew a penis in the sky in Florida, and another phallic phenomenon has already taken over the Internet.

The above screenshot of Network Ten anchor Natarsha Belling was posted to UNILAD’s Facebook page this past weekend, and it has since blown up and been shared on a number of different news sites around the world.

It was also trending on Facebook.

“Once you see it, you cannot unsee it…” UNILAD writes in the caption.

Unfortunate for her, but true. You will never not see a penis on Belling’s neckline.

No response yet from her on Twitter.

So far 2015 has been a good year for viral outfits. Which will you be wearing this Halloween? The white and gold dress, blue and black dress or penis jacket?

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.

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.

Oh my god… Chewy!

This girl was just filming herself (vertically… ugh) practicing some yoga moves when her little dog wandered into the shot.

Then BOOM, Chewy gets lauched into space before transitioning into downward dog.

Looks like he was just a little shaken up but otherwise seems to be ok.
