(CNN)Any time you worry you’re not normal, just remember: There’s an entire world full of people who are doing all sorts of super questionable things. These are some of the weirdest stories that made us rub our eyes today and go, “Huh?”
There’s a serial ‘puddle splasher’ loose in London
Your childhood bully grew up and got himself a Toyota 4×4. That’s the only explanation we have for why anyone in the world would go around soaking pedestrians with dirty street water for kicks
North London cops ran the car’s tags. It’s not registered to anyone and has no insurance. We hope the driver’s caught, so that he (or she) picks up the award for “Most Hated Driver in London.”
A dude is punched in the face because he looks like Shia LaBeouf
So. Many. Questions.
Sure, Shia’s questionable antics can be annoying, but is he really punch-worthy?
And if he is, why is it your job, random guy in New York City, to administer the punching?
Mario Licato was just moseying along, minding his business, when some guy came out of nowhere and decked him.
And as Licato tumbled down the stairs, the guy yelled, “This is because you look exactly like Shia LaBeouf.”
Residents suggest naming a school Trump Elementary
Have you not learned, Worldy McWorldface? If you give regular people something to name, they are going to mess it up. Boaty McBoatface was just the tip of the iceberg
The Robert E. Lee Elementary School in Austin, Texas, wanted a less polarizing, less Confederate-y name and opened the nominating up to the public. Bad idea
The top suggestion? Donald J. Trump Elementary. Other suggestions? Flavor Flav Elementary. Generic School Name. Adolf Hitler School for Friendship and Tolerance.
Think of the children!
World Naked Gardening Day is an actual thing
How are you going to celebrate? Nevermind, DON’T TELL US!
The holiday’s May 7 (if you’d like to set a calendar alert), but people are already talking about it. The aim: to get as close to nature as humanly possible.
“When you’re out there with a gentle breeze on you, every last hair on your body feels it,” the WNGD site reads
. “You feel completely connected with the natural world in a way you just can’t in clothes.” We have a feeling your neighbors will think otherwise.
(If you click on that link, be warned: It contains a few pics of — surprise — naked people gardening.)
Venezuela is proposing a two-day work week
Fridays are already a day off in Venezuela. Now it wants to add Wednesday and Thursday to the list.
But before you buy a one-way ticket to Caracas, let’s be clear: Venezuelans aren’t jumping in joy about their five-day weekends. There’s serious drought in the country and rolling blackouts
. this is meant to conserve energy.
So next time you’re longing for a long weekend, just know it’s not always as great as it seems.
