275x250.jpg A teenager accidentally shot himself in the penis and testicle while cleaning his new gun. Oops!

Michael Smeriglio had reportedly not had the gun for longer than a month when the bizarre (and painful) accident happened.

While cleaning his weapon, we men the gun, 18-year-old Smeriglio somehow pulled the trigger and fired a shot which went through his penis and left testicle.

Doctors say the bullet ended up getting lodged in his thigh, though Smeriglio is now recovering from the ordeal.

During their investigation of the incident, police reportedly found marijuana in the house … who would have thought that could be involved.


Nathalie Rollandin was filming the sunset in San Francisco when a thieving seagull nicked her camera and proceeded to fly off with it, as this footage show.

Video from the GoPro camera shows how the kleptomaniac bird flew over the water in front of Golden Gate Bridge before discarding the camera which was later recovered.

Writing online Rollandin said: "Video of how a seagull stole my GoPro, flew over the water in front of Golden Gate Bridge and how the camera incredibly managed to survive, recording everything!"

Since uploading the footage to YouTube, it has been seen more than two million times … the thieving bird is still at large.


When a gang of thugs tried to steal motorbikes from Ducati Motorbike Showroom in London, they forgot to account for one thing ... the staff.


As such the six armed men - who were trying to pinch a £25,000 1199 Panigale Ducati Superbike - were chased off by the brave staff.

Two of the would-be thieves had initially tried to push the bike out of the store, but the manager managed to push them off and pull it back inside.

But that wasn't the end of it, and the conflict continued as a battle broke out, as this CCTV footage shows.


Eva Halpain and John Manassel thought they were getting their moment in the spotlight when a TV crew came to interview them after a tree fell and caused damage to their home.


But the elderly couple from Benton, Arkansas, were somewhat upstaged during the TV interview … when a naked man appeared wandering out of the woods near their home.

Prompted by Manassel asking "What is this out there that we got?" and then stating that he should "start an ass-kicking contest" the TV crew turned the camera onto the naked man.

Local police are reported to have said that the 22-year-old man was high on drugs when he walked out of the woods and that he was arrested and charged with public intoxication and indecent exposure.


Drink driving is never cool, but somehow it seems even worse when the inebriated person in question is sitting behind the wheel of a digger.

And that's what this video from Russia appears to show - a drunk driver ploughing into car after car before his digger comes to a standstill after colliding with a truck.

However, we're not quite sure he deserves the kicking he then gets from onlookers who pulled him from the vehicle and repeatedly punched him.

275x250.jpg When Randy Tenley decided to dress as Bigfoot and stand by the side of a road in northwestern Montana to provoke sightings of the mythical creature, he probably thought it would be funny.

But what he didn't consider what that his military-style "Ghillie suit" would also camouflage him as he stood in the right-hand lane of a highway.

As a result he was killed when he was knocked over by one car and hit by a second as he lay in the road.

Montana Highway Patrol say his motives of trying to get people to call in a Sasquatch sighting became apparent after they interviewed his friends.

It's not known whether alcohol was a factor … but we could have a guess.
