Teen with ‘biggest mouth in world’ shoves 138 pencils in his gob.
A story that wouldn’t be amiss in the Guinness Book of World Records, teen Raja Thapa managed to squeeze a spectacular 138 pencils into his mouth. He then trumps this record by hoarding 32 lit candles in a single mouthful, heating up his talent no end.

I love to entertain people.” The amusement value and improbable nature of the stunt are enough to keep anyone’s interest, leaving you wondering what he’ll tackle next.

The strangely addictive video of food being ‘operated’ on
If you like to cook and/or eat, this video is oddly mesmerising and guaranteed to make you hungry. From Oreos to oranges, the ‘surgeon’ dissects each morsel with perfect precision as though a life depended on it. As mad as the concept is, you have to admire the meticulousness. In one episode, the surgeon manages to transplant the ‘heart’ of an Oreo into a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, graciously giving the tasty treat a second chance at life. It’s fair to say you’d be waiting a while if he cooked you dinner.
Bizarre clip of woman walking man like a dog
Footage surfaced of a woman casually walking a masked man down a street in Birmingham. The video, which appears to be a dominatrix stunt, has baffled and worried members of the public that are unfamiliar with the world of sadomasochism. Asked what was going on by an onlooker, she simply barked “leave my dog alone.” The woman is said to have made £20,000 from humiliating men, and it seems that stepping out in public is worth every penny. This is one of several similar instances caught on camera in the UK.

Wannabe weather girl slapped in face by flying fish
It was certainly a bad day at the office for this woman; even the fish were unhappy with her performance, and one made sure that she knew about it.

Although the video has divided audiences regarding its authenticity, the footage doesn’t disappoint for a cheap laugh.

A name that wouldn’t be out of place in a Disney film, Beezow Doo-doo Zopittybop-bop-bop is a Wisconsin man who’s had one too many brushes with the law. Accused of first degree assault against police officers, the 34-year-old first came to light in 2012 when he changed his name legally from Jeffrey Drew Wilschke to the unusual moniker.

Selfie woman rescued from well by ‘shirt rope’
Everyone loves a selfie, and whether you own a selfie stick or just know people who do, there’s no escape from being snapped. But now it appears that the need for a quick self-portrait photo has gone too far, as one unlucky holidaymaker had to be rescued after falling 30ft down a well whilst touring in the state of Gujarat. The hapless woman suffered an injury to her left leg and passersby came to her aid by creating a long rope from their shirts, lowering it down the well and pulling her to safety. Hopefully, she’ll think more carefully next time she feels the need for a cheeky selfie.

Eight-legged species named after Johnny Cash
If there’s one way to honour a music legend, it’s to name a species of tarantula after him. Discovered near Folsom Prison, the hairy creature was bestowed the name aphonopelma johnnycashi due to the location being made famous by Johnny Cash in his song Folsom Prison Blues. Furthermore, the dark colourings of the johnnycashi are reminiscent of the singer’s preference for dark attire. Described by Dr Chris Hamilton (pictured) as “teddy bears with eight legs,” it’s about time we had an arachnid named peterparki after our friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man.
