The Bonehead Of The Day:
A Texas man claimed to be the newly adopted son of first lady, Michelle Obama, and asked a bank teller to give him access to her account.
Police were called to Chase Bank after receiving reports of a suspicious customer.
The bank teller informed him that Mrs. Obama didn't have an account there and asked him to leave, but he refused.
When the police arrived to question the man, he told them that "Mrs. Obama contacted him through Facebook and adopted him and he was now trying to get money out of her bank account."
Needless to say, the 29-year-old suspect was arrested and is now in a local county jail.
He ended up with a pot possession charge, and a criminal background check also revealed that the man had outstanding warrants for resisting arrest and assault on a public servant.

The App That Can Precisely Calculate Your Bra Size
A NASA scientist created an app that can precisely calculate a woman's bra size from an iPhone selfie.
ThirdLove works by taking two pictures of a user wearing a tight vest top.

Using a female's tutorial voice, the app then suggest bras and underwear that you should buy from their own store-- which they claim should fit you like a glove.
Shake It Don't Break It.. Pregnant Women Are Twerking
Pregnant women are the latest group to get excited about the twerking dance craze.
In a thread on BabyCenter.com, dozens of expectant moms have shared videos where they show off their impressive dance skills.
The women are seven to eight months pregnant.
In one video, an expectant mom who is 32-weeks-pregnant gets into the hip-hop spirit in a backwards cap and tight black leggings as she twerks.
BabyCenter's editor-in-chief says that it's no surprise that mothers-to-be have jumped on the twerking bandwagon, because they are very plugged into pop culture and have a great sense of humor.
Some may find it hard to believe that women carrying so much extra weight can have so much energy, but the editor claims that twerking simply makes for a fun activity.
She explains, 'Being pregnant doesn't mean your life is over. You're still a woman when you become a mother. And you can shake your booty just like you did before!'
Dating Site Gets You Started With A Free Divorce
The website Sugardaddie.com is offering three Chicago couples a free divorce.
The site that pairs up "older, affluent men with younger attractive woman", will pay almost $300 for a divorce package from legalzoom.com
But you only get the divorce if you agree to a few major issues, like settlements and child custody.
Sugardaddie CEO (Steven Pasternak) says the site is hoping to "help people gain real independence in their lives" and combat the high cost of divorce, which can cost an average of $282 an hour in big cities like Chicago.
