Bonehead of The Day:

A man in Davenport, Florida stole a puppy, but tweeted about it first. 

The 20-year-old man asked to pet a 10-week-old Husky mix outside a restaurant. He then grabbed the dog and ran. 

Cops saw the man with the dog a short time later and arrested him. 

They say he tweeted about the plan beforehand, writing "hush puppy plan in action."

Riders Stuck on Roller Coaster.. For 2 Hours!

Firefighters rescued 12 riders, including at least one child, who were stuck in a vertical position on TOP of a roller coaster at Universal Orlando for more than two hours.

Firefighters started using harnesses and ropes or cables to rescue the passengers sitting atop the ride, which stands 167 feet tall.

The passengers were removed one at a time, and one of the riders was taken to a nearby hospital after complaining of neck pain.

Universal said the ride shut down automatically, but the cause of the malfunction was not immediately known.

Mob Wanted Johnny Carson Dead For Flirting With Mafia Guy's Girlfriend

According to a new book, a mob boss wanted Johnny Carson dead for flirting with a mobster's girlfriend.

It was 1970, Carson was inside a Manhattan bar when he went up to the woman and tried to get her to leave with him-- but she was dating a man who was high up in the mob. When the mobster and his crew arrived, they went over to Carson, grabbed him and threw him down a flight of stairs. He then put a hit out on Carson.

Carson hid in his home for three days.

The hit was called off after NBC made a deal with crime boss Joseph Colombo to carry coverage of a Columbus Day rally that was formed by the Italian-American Civil Rights League.

Video Of the Day:

Oh boy this is a funny, and scary video..  Reminds me of an ex girlfriend..  Glad this is an act, because, if she was actually doing this for somebody, i'd advise him to run!  FAST!!  She's got a lil psycho look...  As she quotes Taylor Swift lyrics.
