A furious wife in Colombia forced her husband to ride naked atop her car through crowded streets after she caught him in a motel room with another woman. The philanderer, identified only as Jairo V., told police his wife insisted on the humiliating punishment as the only way to save his marriage. The drive wended through the city of Barranquilla’s most crowded neighborhoods, as passers-by hooted with laughter and took photos with their smartphones. Police abbreviated the penance by stopping the car and slapping the man with a $100 fine for indecent exposure.
A San Francisco pop-up bar is giving visitors the chance to drink while live rats “scurry all over you.” For $49.99 per person, the Rat Bar promises an immersive tour of the city’s “weird, twisted, dark” history, along with a signature cocktail called an “Ama-RAT-o Sour” (made with amaretto) and 30 minutes of playtime with rats provided by an animal shelter. It will be an evening, organizers said, where “the rats run free and the booze flows like water.”
A West Virginia high school principal admits he may have plagiarized actor Ashton Kutcher in an address to this year’s graduating class. After principal Kenny DeMoss delivered his speech, a now-viral video revealed that he’d borrowed heavily from Kutcher’s 2013 Nickelodeon Teen Choice Awards speech, including similar wording and, at times, identical phrasing. DeMoss said he should have cited his sources, but insisted the speech was mostly his. “I did not get all my ideas from Ashton,” he said. “Format yes; thoughts and ideas were from my heart.” ■
