... or week, or month, or whatever.

I recently stuck one of these in an all-purpose thread but some websites are just too good and so I decided this topic needs its own space.

So in addition to last week's gem of: Man found buried under massive pile of porn mags, I now add: Wife poisons husbands Lucky Charms to avoid sex with him

Apparently some folks went looking for man who didn't show up to wherever he was supposed to be. This is in Indonesia, btw.
While looking they came across one of his boots. Nearby to that they found an engorged snake.
Cutting open the snake confirmed the worst case scenario.

The film clip on USA Today of that bridge fire and collapse blows my mind. Wouldn't it be awful to be driving toward that and not know what to do??

That's because news of guys getting eaten by pythons in Indonesia is also known as 'Tuesday'.
I suspect it might be a bit rarer in Pennsylvania.

Those weren't the headlights of the oncoming train. He was watching a porn video.

You're right. He should have just shown the video.
