Weird World: 13 Odd (And Hilarious), Yet Little-Known Events

Consuming facts is like that one potato chip commercial from forever ago (back when you had no choices but to watch commercials): Bet you can't eat just one. Random, little-known, bizarre facts are the junk food of knowledge. Sure, it's questionable whether or not there is any actual value to them but God, they're just so fun. 

Yeah, we know, it's good to know the tax code, how to change your oil, or some other applicable skill that could save you $100 or so. But knowing that Maine had a 25-foot-tall rubber ducky show up at of nowhere? How can you put a price on that? And finding out Larry David and Alan Dershowtiz had a grocery store brawl? Priceless.

We at Cracked say, “Let them eat facts and be merry.” Here are some fun news stories and odd facts for you to consume at your leisure, whether they are helpful or not.
