Ah, the stories of the modern age! A congressman accused of lying about his race, an executive urinating on a plane passenger, a tech mogul trying to dodge bad press, butter flooding a Wisconsin town, a law allowing copyright infringement, a porch pirate wearing women’s underwear, a governor declaring natural gas ’green’, Prince Harry accusing Camilla of press manipulation, cows running amok in Quebec, bovine bribery, Japan paying people to move to the country and have babies, a guy forgetting his meth, and two repeat offenders in Florida...

We’ve all heard stories like these before, and yet, these stories still manage to capture our attention. We can’t help but be fascinated by the strange, the outrageous, and the downright unbelievable. We can’t help but be drawn in by the mystery of it all. And so, we present to you this list of some of the craziest stories of the year so far - stories that will make you laugh, stories that will make you cry, and stories that will make you think. So, sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.
