Did Colleen Cudney Make The World's Dumbest Facebook Post?

Monday March 31, 2014
Colleen Cudney Mug ShotColleen Cudney is in some serious hot water right now.

Convicted of drunken driving in 2012, she's not supposed to be drinking at all -- and she's subject to random breathalyzer tests.

The Michigan woman was given one the day after St. Patrick's Day and passed. But then Colleen allegedly wrote about it on Facebook:

"Buzz killer for me, I had to breathalyze this morning and I drank yesterday but I passed thank god lol," she wrote, according to Local 4 news.

The eyes of the law were apparently upon her Facebook page, so she was called in for a urine test, which can detect alcohol in the system from up to 80 hours previously.

She allegedly hung up.

She's due in court later this week and faces up to 93 days in jail for violating her probation, according to The Huffington Post.

Streaker Gets Grabbed You-Know-Where

Monday March 31, 2014
StreakerThe problem with grabbing naked people is that there are so few parts you can hold onto.

But that problem appears to have been solved here, as a security guard at Forsyth Barr Stadium in Dunedin, New Zealand has his arms wrapped around... well... let's just say he has his arms wrapped around a streaker in a way so complete we don't even have to censor this photo.

For more on this incident as well as the best streakers of 2014 so far -- including the world-famous pot-bellied streaker -- see this new photo collection.

Fraud! Pip The 'Psychic Goat' Is Baaaaaaad News

Sunday March 30, 2014
A Goat (NOT Pip)Turns out Pip the goat is just a goat... in every sense.

Pip (that's not him pictured) was supposed to be the next in a long and storied line of psychic animals able to predict the outcome of sporting events.

But Pip may be looking for a new career, as my colleague Andy Campbell of the Huffington Post reports -- because he FAILED to predict the winner of a simple soccer match over in the U.K.

Better watch out, Pip... some people bet money on that match, and something tells me they're hungry for goat stew.

Alleged Naked Coke-Smoking Tricyclist Arrested

Sunday March 30, 2014
Jermaine Jones Mug ShotAs Rick James once said, "cocaine is a helluva drug."

Police in Lakewood, New Jersey, say 31-year-old Jermaine Jones smoked some cocaine and then found himself riding around on a tricycle at an apartment complex. By the time officers arrived on the scene, he had allegedly abandoned the tricycle and was sitting (still naked) under a stairwell, where he was chewing on glass and tobacco, reports David Moye of Huffington Post Crime.

That would certainly explain matters.

He was treated for cuts in his mouth at a local hospital and charged with disorderly conduct and being under the influence.

See more of Jones as well as this week's other alleged dumb criminals in my new gallery, This Week in Weird Crime.

He's facing charges of felony attempted murder, armed robbery and burglary with a weapon.

Penis-Waving Potbelly Peeper on the Prowl in S. San Francisco

Friday January 31, 2014
San Francisco PeeperHigh school cheerleaders in South San Francisco got an unwelcome visitor to their locker room earlier this month, and it wasn't a coach there to deliver a pep talk.

No, it was a naked man - who stared at the girls, waved his penis at them and then took off.

"He didn't say anything. He was just standing there, staring at us," freshman cheerleader Alondra Gomez told KTVU-TV.

After he left, the girls called 911. Police couldn't find the man, but they did get this sketch.

He's described as being a balding white man between 45 and 50 years old and of average build - except for a potbelly, according to HuffPost Crime.

Psychic Orangutan Predicts Seahawks Super Bowl Victory

Friday January 31, 2014
Super Bowl ApeThis isn't an ordinary orangutan. This is an ape that has a sixth sense for the Super Bowl - because for six straight years, he's managed to predict the winner.

And - sorry, Denver Broncos fans - this year, he's going ape for the Seattle Seahawks.

Eli, a 13-year-old orangutan at the Hogle Zoo in Salt Lake City, was given a choice of two papier-mache helmets with the logos of the two teams, and made his pick clear by smashing apart the one representing Seattle.

"He made his pick without any hesitation," said zoo publicist Erica Hansen, according to the Associated Press.

Stuff You Didn't Know About Chipotle

Thursday January 30, 2014
ChipotleWhat's worth $15 billion, uses 100,000 avocados a day and even has its own currency?

It's Chipotle, the burrito restaurant that came out of nowhere to become one of the nation's top fast food chains.

But believe it or not, the creator of Chipotle never set out to get into the burrito business at all. In fact, Steve Ells wanted a fancy restaurant - and the burrito shop was supposed to be a quick way to raise some money towards that dream.

I've got some trivia about Chipotle you probably never knew in my new gallery. And for more fun facts about the world's top burrito chain, see "15 Things You Didn't Know About Chipotle" over at The Huffington Post.
