Did Colleen Cudney Make The World's Dumbest Facebook Post?

Colleen Cudney Mug ShotColleen Cudney is in some serious hot water right now.

Convicted of drunken driving in 2012, she's not supposed to be drinking at all -- and she's subject to random breathalyzer tests.

The Michigan woman was given one the day after St. Patrick's Day and passed. But then Colleen allegedly wrote about it on Facebook:

"Buzz killer for me, I had to breathalyze this morning and I drank yesterday but I passed thank god lol," she wrote, according to Local 4 news.

The eyes of the law were apparently upon her Facebook page, so she was called in for a urine test, which can detect alcohol in the system from up to 80 hours previously.

She allegedly hung up.

She's due in court later this week and faces up to 93 days in jail for violating her probation, according to The Huffington Post.

Streaker Gets Grabbed You-Know-Where

StreakerThe problem with grabbing naked people is that there are so few parts you can hold onto.

But that problem appears to have been solved here, as a security guard at Forsyth Barr Stadium in Dunedin, New Zealand has his arms wrapped around... well... let's just say he has his arms wrapped around a streaker in a way so complete we don't even have to censor this photo.

For more on this incident as well as the best streakers of 2014 so far -- including the world-famous pot-bellied streaker -- see this new photo collection.

Fraud! Pip The 'Psychic Goat' Is Baaaaaaad News

A Goat (NOT Pip)Turns out Pip the goat is just a goat... in every sense.

Pip (that's not him pictured) was supposed to be the next in a long and storied line of psychic animals able to predict the outcome of sporting events.

But Pip may be looking for a new career, as my colleague Andy Campbell of the Huffington Post reports -- because he FAILED to predict the winner of a simple soccer match over in the U.K.

Better watch out, Pip... some people bet money on that match, and something tells me they're hungry for goat stew.

Alleged Naked Coke-Smoking Tricyclist Arrested

Jermaine Jones Mug ShotAs Rick James once said, "cocaine is a helluva drug."

Police in Lakewood, New Jersey, say 31-year-old Jermaine Jones smoked some cocaine and then found himself riding around on a tricycle at an apartment complex. By the time officers arrived on the scene, he had allegedly abandoned the tricycle and was sitting (still naked) under a stairwell, where he was chewing on glass and tobacco, reports David Moye of Huffington Post Crime.

That would certainly explain matters.

He was treated for cuts in his mouth at a local hospital and charged with disorderly conduct and being under the influence.
