Toronoto Maple Leafs player Nazem Kadri was benched on Monday because he overslept and missed a team meeting.

So a reporter for Canada’s CP24 was out on the streets asking fans what they thought of the decision.

One man seemed to have something intelligent to say… at first.

“He gets paid a lot to be there,” he says. “So I think he should just f*ck her right in the pu**y.”

The reporter was not pleased, and she quickly sends the camera back to the anchor.

“Oh my goodness,” she says. “That was awful.”

The FHRITP meme started last year when filmmaker John Cain uploaded various videos of reporters getting pranked live on the air which eventually turned out to be hoaxes.

This one however, appears to be all too real.

This is the stuff of nightmares, especially if you're already scared of flying.

An Air Canada flight was forced to make a crash landing on Thursday, when one of its tires burst soon after take-off from Calgary.

But as the plane went down, the landing gear collapsed, and its propeller broke off, slicing into the plane and hitting passenger Christina Kurylo in the head.

Fortunately, no one died, and there were only minor injuries.

"I'm really lucky. It could have been a million times worse," said Christina Kurylo. "I could have died, you know, you never know what could have happened."

Kurylo was one of 5 employees from an Alberta-based radio station that were all on board when the incident occurred. And they seem to be taking it all in stride.

No reason to name the killer. We don't want to show people an easy way to get their name on the news. Praise the hero, not the killer.

January 1, 2000 was a date that many folks feared the world would come to an end. Some simply stored supplies while others went to more drastic extremes. Once we all learned that Y2K was, in fact, not the end of all mankind, most who were convinced of the millennium doomsday sheepishly went back to their regular lives. Norman Feller, however, did not follow suit.

It was only after 14 years of leading a secluded, solitary life in a bunker buried in his back yard that he finally decided to emerge this last September to discover the outcome that we've all been aware of since midnight of that dreaded New Year's night. It was the lonely life in a windowless, makeshift home and sheer curiosity that finally drove him to come out.

Once surfaced from his survival pod, Feller's first impression was that things hadn't changed much. His house was basically in the same condition it was since he left it, and his car was still in the garage. There are, however, certain changes that he finds amazing. He's shocked at the wide-spread use of smart phones, the relative lack concern regarding acid rain, and the fact that Joey got a spin-off from Friends ("Chandler was the one that everybody wanted to watch, right?") The thing that Feller is most impressed with is KFC's 'Double Down' sandwich that has chicken breasts instead of bread.

After reflecting on the world around him, Feller realized the mistake he'd made. In his preparation for Y2K, he abandoned his wife, not allowed her to share in the safety of his bunker. He has since apologized to her for the rejection. Emerging from his backyard bunker has given Feller new a outlook on life. His advice is rather to plan for the world to come to an end, be prepared for the world to live forever.

UPDATE: We've learned recently that this story originally came from a satirical radio program in Canada. Well done, This is That. We wanted this to be a real thing so badly! A great story nonetheless.
