Pitbull bites shark!

Pitbull bites shark!

Over the weekend, British stuntman Marco George broke the world record for the fastest headstand on a motorcycle, topping out at just over 76 miles per hour. Seriously. The guy was standing on his head while he more-than-doubled the old world record of 30 miles an hour. Marco said he felt “amazing and relieved” — but now has to deal with his mom and his promise to her, that he’d quit, if he ever got going that fast. (ITV)

The Daily Mail says the world’s oldest turtle, Tommy, recently celebrated her 121st birthday. She was purchased by Sheila Flores’ grandmother in 1909. She recently held a birthday party for her where she placed a gold birthday hat on her shell and allowed her to crawl around on a table between several birthday cupcakes. Party goers said Tommy the Turtle looked absolutely giddy.

And finally,

NBC says a Sonoma County, California pitbull is being hailed as a hero for rescuing his owner from a shark. James White was fishing when he reeled in a seven gill shark. The shark broke free and latched onto James’ leg! Darby, James’s pet pit bull saw what was happening, jumped out of a car window and ran to his side. Darby grabbed the shark by his tail and pulled it off of James’ leg. He then ran up a hill with it. (We should make Darby the next star of Shark Week.)

Pickles in Oreos?

Pickles in Oreos?

The Washington Post says Danette Giltz, of Sturgis, South Dakota, recently went to the hospital because she thought she had kidney stones. She was actually in labor and gave birth to triplets several hours later. Blaze, Gypsy and Nikki were born within four minutes of each other. Danette had no idea she was 34 weeks pregnant.

People magazine says Grandpa Joe’s candy shops in Pennsylvania and Ohio are reportedly selling chocolate-covered Oreo cookies stuffed with pickles. The shop puts a dill pickle slice in an Oreo before covering it in chocolate. A three pack costs $9. (Pickles in Oreos? Shouldn’t we call the snack police?)

And finally,

The NY Post claims the 1964 Aston Martin used to promote the James Bond movie ”Thunderball” was recently auctioned off for $6.4 million. The car was fully restored so it’s extendable ramming bumpers, smokescreen, bulletproof shield and rotating license plates would all work. All good for driving the LIE during rush hour.

A hotel for your plants!

A hotel for your plants!

Finally, what to do with your houseplants when you go on vacation! The Patch Plant Hotel is located in London. Co-founder Freddie Blackett created the hotel because people go on vacation and their plants suffer. They’ve had over 100 bookings since opening. Freddie says the plants receive spa services like massages.

CBS claims the St. Augustine, Florida police recently arrested a shoplifter for stuffing two ribeye steaks down the front of his pants. Michael Owens was videotaped attempting to leave a grocery store without paying. A loss prevention officer apprehended him before cops charged him with theft. The steaks were recovered, and most importantly, NOT returned to store shelves.

And finally,

(This next story is both weird and slightly disturbing…) The NY Daily News says BronyCon, the My Little Pony convention for men, held its final convention recently in Baltimore. Over 10,000 men showed up. Many showed off My Little Pony tattoos and reminisced about the previous nine conventions. The first BronyCon had just 100 attendees. (Is that something you admit to going to?!!)
