Thawed-Out Iguanas Attack A Florida Man Trying To Eat Them, Crash A Car
If you live in a place that ever gets cold, you've probably only seen iguanas at a zoo or in someone's apartment during a very disastrous first date. However, if you live in southern Florida, they're just everywhere -- on the street, in the trees, even on your plate. In parts of Central and South America, these little monsters are considered yummy delicacies, known as the "chicken of the trees." But unlike other food you can pick from a tree (including chicken), these fellas can mess you up.

The winter of 2017-2018 saw unusually cold weather in typically warm places. One of these was Florida, where temperatures dropped to under 40 degrees. Bad news for the iguanas, which, like any cold-blooded reptile, become "cold stunned" at such low temperatures. During the cold snap, paralyzed iguanas would simply fall out of trees, landing on roads, walkways, and even in backyards. However, from the perspective of some Floridians, it was suddenly raining delicious frozen treats from the sky. Frozen. Not dead.
Of course, Florida being Florida, one local was dumb enough to start scooping up these stunned iguanas and pile them into his car for later. However, seeing as it was so gosh darned cold outside, of course he put his heater on blast as he was cruising for lizard ... consequently thawing out dozens of iguanas as he was driving. Needless to say, it's difficult to drive a car full of pissed-off reptiles, so he ended up crashing. They didn't eat him, though, making them the bigger iguanas.
Swiss Toilets Overflowed With 100K In Cash
Blocking somebody's toilet is one of those faux pas you'll never live down. It's the kind of shame that makes you move to a new state and assume a new name, one that isn't "Poop Monster" Dave. But in Switzerland, someone found a way to clog their can in the classiest way possible: by literally flushing money down the toilet.
When an employee at the USB Bank in Geneva went on their bathroom break, they encountered a very pleasant surprise -- words that have never before been said about a public bathroom stall. First at the USB Bank, then at three nearby restaurants, hundreds of 500-euro bills were clogging the pipes and rising back up out of the toilets. Altogether, authorities estimated that about 100,000 euros' worth of cash ($120,000), which was sadly cut up into pieces, was sent to a watery, shit-ridden grave.
