  • That say that no news is good news, but it turns out that weird news is even better news.

  • Sure, if you pick up the newspaper or watch the nightly news, it seems to be an endless

  • litany of terrible things.

  • But it turns out there's also a bunch of strange, wacky, and downright odd things going on too.

  • Here's a look at the weirdest news stories of 2017.

  • It has a reputation for being one of the most

  • relaxing sports around - or boring, depending on your point of view - but a fishing trip

  • nearly turned deadly for a 28-year-old man in England.

  • After catching a 6-inch fish, the man posed for a photo where he pretended to kiss it,

  • which is when the fish got frisky.

  • "It shot out of my hand, into my mouth, and basically swam straight down my throat."

  • Paramedics arrived just two minutes later, but the man had already stopped breathing

  • and gone into cardiac arrest.

  • Amazingly, they were able to get the fish out and revive the victim, who later made

  • a full recovery.

  • Craziest of all?

  • In 2016, another man actually perished when a fish jumped down his throat as well.

  • Yikes.

  • It was apparently an epic year for fishing,

  • because down in Florida, an unnamed man got the surprise of his life when he reeled in

  • a cursing drunk woman.

  • Identified as 22-year-old Alexandria Turner, the woman apparently swam up to the man's

  • lure and began shouting obscenities at him before biting his line and swimming off with

  • it.

  • Attempts to reel Turner in failed, and police arrived to coax her, still swearing and shouting,

  • up onto the pier, where she was hauled off to face charges of disorderly intoxication

  • and resisting arrest.

  • Good thing he didn't try to kiss her!

  • U.S. authorities spent years building a case

  • against Gal Vallerius, who allegedly lived a secret double life as "OxyMonster," an administrator

  • for a Dark Web narcotics emporium.

  • But since he lived in France, they couldn't arrest him unless he set foot on American

  • soil - which he foolishly did in an attempt to win the World Beard and Moustache Championships.

  • While the other competitors were shocked, they still had to give credit where credit

  • was due, with one saying "I don't know anything about what other stuff

  • he did, but as far as his beard goes, it's really awesome."

  • Travelers to the U.S. must typically fill

  • out what's called an ESTA form, which asks such seemingly ridiculous questions as

  • "Do you seek to engage in or have you ever engaged in terrorist activities, espionage,

  • sabotage, or genocide?"

  • Nobody would ever actually say yes to that.

  • Right?

  • Well, someone did - and that someone was a three month old baby.

  • Sixty-three-year-old Englishman Paul Kenyon was traveling with his 3-month-old grandson

  • Harvey when he accidentally checked the wrong box on Harvey's form.

  • Authorities hauled the baby in for questioning, leading to what had to be one of the most

  • amazing interrogations of all time.

  • Kenyon told The Guardian that the American officials "didn't appear to have a sense of

  • humor over it at all," adding, "if you were a terrorist, I suspect you'd not be ticking

  • yes on the ESTA form anyway."

  • We never did trust those babies.

  • In the German town of Neustadt, a group of

  • thieves somehow completely emptied a refrigerated truck full of Nutella, making off with almost

  • 20 tons of the chocolate hazelnut spread.

  • According to CBS Chicago, authorities strongly suspect the theft of a trailer in a neighboring

  • town may be related to the deliciously sweet heist, while Neustadt police gravely warned

  • the public about accepting "...large quantities of chocolate via unconventional channels."

  • We know who our top suspect is.

  • Tennis players often grunt loudly while serving.

  • But during a match at the Sarasota Open between Frances Tiafoe and Mitchell Krueger, fans

  • and players alike were surprised to hear the loudest grunting coming from somewhere off

  • court.

  • While commentators originally thought the noises were coming from someone in the crowd

  • watching prn on their phones, it turned out a couple in an apartment all the way on the

  • other side of a nearby lake were engaged in their own loud baseline rally, which apparently

  • ended in a score of love-love.

  • If... you know what we mean.

  • "It's still going.

  • What is going on?"

  • "It can't be that good!"

  • [Laughter]

  • "An Orange County man is suing Heineken, because

  • he says he found a little something extra in his beer."

  • George Toubbeh had kicked back with a few brews he'd purchased from a local Ralph's

  • Supermarket when he began to notice a "foul taste," presumably different from the foul

  • taste that comes with simply drinking a typical Heineken.

  • Toubbeh pressed on, drinking enough of the strange brew to make him start pukingand

  • that's when his daughter took a closer look at the can he'd been drinking from and found

  • a couple of dead lizards inside.

  • In August, 2017, he filed a lawsuit claiming "emotional distress and anxiety," but at least

  • it was just geckos and not somethingworse.

  • "Bud-weis-er.

  • Bud-weis-er."

  • The 1984 film Footloose is mostly remembered

  • for Kevin Bacon's incredible dance skills, which he puts on display in a Midwestern town

  • where it's so uptight, it's against the law to dance there.

  • That's something so crazy only Hollywood could imagine it, right?

  • Wrong!

  • Welcome to Henryetta, Oklahoma, which according to ABC News, has an honest-to-Pete morality

  • ordinance which forbids dancing within 500 feet of a church.

  • When a store owner planned a Valentine's Day dance, though, things went sideways.

  • Even though the local sheriff had no intention of enforcing the ridiculous law, the dance

  • was cancelled anyway due to an unusual source of pressure.

  • "The owner cancelled the dance, mostly because her husband is the city attorney."

  • "And he said, you know, that his oath was to uphold the law."

  • There's one bright side, though: now the entire town is just one degree from Kevin Bacon.
