1. Spike Lee Sued For Tweeting Wrong Address He Shouldn't Have Been Tweeting To Begin With

Spike Lee is being sued by a septuagenarian Florida couple after he accidentally encouraged mob justice against them by retweeting their address to the world, thinking he was encouraged mob justice against George Zimmerman in the wake of Trayvon Martin's murder. Though he apologized for attempting to turn hordes of bloodthirsty vigilantes against them, the couple are for some reason not satisfied.


2. Crack-Smoking, Booze-Swilling, Half-Insane Toronto Mayor Rob Ford Considering Possibility It Might Be Time To Get His Life In Order

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford may be refusing to step down from office — even though he's admitted to having a drinking problem and having smoked crack cocaine and a video of him going off on some kind of insane rant about his van down by the river (or something) turned up on the Internet last week — but he might do the next best thing: pretend to get better by spending a few weeks vacationing at a rehab center.

4. This Dog Has A Better Vocabulary Than Many Of Your Friends

Chaser, the 9-year-old border collie from South Carolina, is so smart, he knows practically 1,000 words and has the approximate intellect of a human toddler or an average Reddit commenter. One researcher claims that she is "the most scientifically important dog in over a century," which is saying something considering Spuds MacKenzie only died twenty years ago.

It has recently come to light that the Ohio man who was arrested for making love to a pool raft in front of impressionable children over the summer also had sex with a pumpkin from a Halloween display. The man sure does get around in the seasonal-themed fuck prop circles.
