    1. In Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, a court ordered a man and woman to pay four buffalos and a pig to the local community after being found guilty of having an affair. The man’s wife caught the two at the man’s second home last year, at which point the man claimed that they were just “best friends.”
    2. On Jan. 28, in Houston, TX, an inflatable gorilla was found to be the cause of a shopping center fire. It had apparently deflated and fallen on a row of lights, leading to the blaze. No one was injured.
    3. A Rhode Island doctor recently published a book on Oscar, a nursing home cat that can allegedly predict patients’ deaths within hours. As the story goes, the cat snuggles alongside the soon-to-be deceased. The doctor explained that the cat has made upwards of 50 correct predictions over the past 5 years. The doctor likens Oscar’s ability to sense death and perhaps chemicals given off by dying bodies to certain dogs’ abilities to detect cancer.
    4. On Sunday, Jan. 31, a man took out an order of protection against his father, a pastor, who threatened the son with a pistol during an argument over church attendance. The father allegedly brandished this weapon because of his son’s poor record of attendance.
    5. Late last month, Shanghai hosted the 15th Paris Salon du Chocolat fashion show, in which models flaunted dresses and outerwear made entirely of chocolate. According to the designers, the chocolate generally won’t melt at room temperature and the chocolate is indeed edible.
    6. Taco Bell admitted that its so-called “Drive-Thru Diet” wasn’t an actual diet, despite one 27-year-old Christine Dougherty’s claim that eating items from Taco Bell’s menu allowed her to lose 50 pounds over the course of two years.
    7. A Polish boat found and rescued a dog stranded out at sea late last month. And ice floe had apparently acted as a raft that carried him more than 100 miles up a river and out to the Baltic Sea. A crew member explained, "As we got closer to the ice floe we saw that it was a dog struggling not to fall into the water." And considering that temperatures out on the Baltic Sea reach about -31 Fahrenheit at night, the crew’s timing couldn’t be better.
    8. On Wed. Jan. 27, a priest was accused of shoplifting butter and a sofa cover and of switching the bar code on a memory foam mattress, which cost $145, so that it was only scanned to cost $31.
    9. In Knoxville, TN, police arrested a woman for cocaine possession. She, however, claimed that the white powdery substance on her mouth was residue from a doughnut.
    10. Early this month at the University of Tennessee, in an ultimate twist of irony, a cow tipped a man and then proceeded to step on him. Fortunately, the man was largely alright and suffered only minor injuries.
