Giant Rats Take Over The Homes Of Some U.K. Residents

It sounds like the plot of a horror movie, but it's real life.

Giant mutant rats have been swarming around the homes and kitchens of the residents of Kent, England.  The people are terrified, saying they feel powerless as the giant creatures invade their homes to escape the cold winter.

Some of the rats have measured up to 17-inches long!

One resident who saw a rat in his home said, "It was massive. I'm not joking; it was like a 3-month old puppy or something. I've never seen anything like it."


This Is One Wedding You DO Want To Attend!

How do I get an invite to this guy's parties?

Footage from a wedding in Nigeria has hit the interwebs and it shows a kid using a gold-plated gun to shoot wads of cash into the air for the guests to keep!!!  The money supposedly belongs to oil billionaire AYIRI EMAMI, and the wedding was his brother's.

The kid with the gun? Emami's son.  No word on how much money was handed out but that beats a candle with the bride and groom's name on it any day! Click here to see the video.


The Turkey You Don’t Want To Eat

This turkey in California will probably be spared from the dinner table this year.

Workers at the Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary in Stockton say LEON, a real live turkey was taken in after being found wandering the streets.  But, what makes him really special is that he behaves like a dog.

They said Leon has a big personality and seems to crave attention from people.  He also loves belly rubs, being petted and playing games. A shelter spokesperson says Leon "likes hugs and kisses on the top of his head."

Workers say the turkey may be put into service as a therapy animal.
