Between the Boston bombing, Oklahoma's tornadoes, and the abdication of Netherland's Queen Beatrix, most of us have been so wrapped up in this spring's major news stories that we haven't been paying attention to the trial of Jodi Arias.

We've got to admit, "psycho-librarian" is a look she pulls off.
For those of you out of the loop, Arias was convicted of murder after stabbing her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander 27 times, slitting his throat, and shooting him in the head. Yes, this was a murder of Rasputin-esque proportions, but that isn't the craziest thing about Jodi Arias -- what's crazy is everything that happened next.
4Arias' Alibi Was That Ninjas Did It
When she was first brought in for questioning for the murder of her ex-boyfriend, Arias' go-to answer was that she hadn't seen Alexander in months, so of course she didn't do it. After the police presented her with DNA and nude pictures taken on the day of the killing that suggested otherwise, Arias said something to the effect of "Just kidding, it was ninjas. Ninjas killed him."

She'd have had better luck blaming it on Jeffrey Dahmer (and he's dead).
