1. Some pranks are more elaborate than others.

Some jokesters in Canada dangled a car from a bridge. It hung from a cable. At first, officials thought it was a legit accident, but they found the car gutted with no engine. No, someone hung the car there. The first call police made, to the local universities. So far, no one's claiming responsibility.

2. We'll see if a jock strap can save one of America's last blockbuster video stores.

You heard that right. Not just any jockstrap. It was worn by Russell Crowe in the movie "Cinderella Man." A blockbuster video store in Alaska now has it on display to try and attract business. 

3. You shouldn't drive down the road with 3,000 bees loose in your truck.
