Cooper's Hill Cheese Rolling Is Kinda Crazy

Cheese RollingIt's one of the weirdest of all sporting events: The "cheese rolling" that takes place every year at Cooper's Hill over in the U.K.

A wheel of Gloucester cheese is rolled down a hill, and people run after it.

But it's not as simple as it sounds... because people go nuts and the hill is lumpy and slippery.

You can see a video if it here.

But what's even nuttier is the first-person POV caught on video with a GoPro camera.

Check out HuffPost Weird News for that crazy clip... and you may never look at a wheel of cheese the same way.

Pirates Gather In Attempt To Set New World Record

Pirate!Thousands of pirates gathered in (where else?) Penzance, England in an attempt to show the world they have more scallywags than anyone else.

The pirate gathering was supposed to break the record for "largest gathering of pirates," but a few too many walked the plank: with 14,154 pirates gathered, they fell 77 rascals, scoundrels, villains and knaves short of the record.

The BBC reports that organizers had been hoping for 20,000 pirates.

There's always next year, mateys.

In the meantime, you can gaze upon yonder visage of the many fine pirate costumes from the gathering in my new photo collection.

Bigfoot On Display In New York?

Bigfoot On Display In New York?

Not BigfootThe world's "most terrifying creature," Bigfoot, is about to go on display in New York at something called the Tiny Top Circus.

But before you buy your ticket, be aware that this circus has an organizer with a bit of a history.

It's Joey Skaggs, the noted prankster who loves to fool the media and public alike.

Still, he's talking a good game.

"He is a sight to see," Skaggs told The Huffington Post. "You will not want to miss this!"

If nothing else, Skaggs has a more creative angle on this one. While other Bigfoot hoaxes claim to have a body, Tiny Top claims to have a living creature that will be released back into the wild, according to a poster for the event.

A bigfoot in the "wilds" of New York? I've already seen it... on the subway.
