Default Wacky news that makes you go "wtf?"

Hello fellow GIMPSy people,
This thread is dedicated to wacky news. Knowing my misfortune, I bet I will find a thread that is dedicated to the same or similar thing after I post this

Anyways,

Saving you the heartache:

The first thread for "all those funny and bizarre links you all come across": http://mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=1256 -- but it has rules.

http://mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=4244 has no rules except that it's for "funny links".

Flouran,

I don't see that those references have anything to do with news about me.

Please don't stray off-topic when you use my name.

Dear Richard,
I am sorry, but I did not know there was a user on mersenneforum with the name Wacky.

My apologies,

Well this thread is meant to be only for funny news. Nothing else.
