One man learned the hard way that mixing live fish and alcohol is apparently not a good idea. Doctors from the University Medical Center in Rotterdam recently detailed the story of a 28-year-old man in the Netherlands who, after drinking an “excessive” amount of beer with his friends and reportedly using ecstasy, swallowed a live fish that became lodged in his throat. The man and his friends -- reportedly inspired by the crude and stunt-filled show “Jackass,” specifically the episode where stuntman Steve-O swallows a live goldfish -- decided to swallow live fish from a home aquarium. Shortly after, the 28-year-old man, who was not identified in the report, volunteered to swallow another fish, which he would soon find out would not pass so swimmingly: a spiky, bronze catfish. The creature apparently put up a fight, extending the spines and sharp barbs located on it's dorsal, pectoral and adipose fins to prevent itself from sliding down his throat. After arriving at the hospital, doctors used a surgical procedure to carefully remove the fish -- which was then dead -- and its spines from his throat. (

An unhinged woman was kicked off a recent United Airlines flight after going on a fat-shaming tirade about her two seatmates – calling the passengers on either side of her “two big pigs.” “Oh my goodness! I don’t know how I’m going to do this for the next four hours!” the woman barked into her cellphone on the Las Vegas-to-Newark flight. She then said, “This is just impossible ’cause they’re squishing me. Like, just unbelievable. At least they’ll keep me warm.” The crew members asked the woman if she would like to wait in the rear so she could check to see if there was another seat available. Other passengers then confronted the furious flier and told he she should be “ashamed of herself.” The woman then said “I’m not politically correct. Why don’t you try and sit between those two big pigs?” In a Facebook post about the incident that has been viewed almost 2.5 million times, a woman onboard said airline workers eventually escorted the woman off the plane.

A man who jumped into a Florida zoo's crocodile enclosure has been sentenced to a year in jail. Court records show 23-year-old Brandon Keith Hatfield of Green Cove Springs pleaded no contest Friday to multiple charges, including trespassing and criminal mischief. St. Augustine police said Hatfield broke into the St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park on November 5th. According to an arrest report, Hatfield caused over $5,000 in damage at the 125-year-old attraction. Police said Hatfield jumped into the water in the zoo's Nile crocodile exhibit. Security video showed a crocodile biting Hatfield on the leg. He escaped, leaving blood and clothing behind him in the enclosure. Among the clothing was a pair of Crocs. Hatfield was arrested the following day after a resident reported seeing him crawling in his underwear across a neighboring yard. (
