The Most Expensive Chocolate In The World

If you like chocolate and spending money --you'll love this.

An artisan chocolate maker has created the "world's most expensive chocolate." FRITZ KNIPSCHILDT is known as the WILLY WONKA of Connecticut.  His new creation, the La Madeline au Truffle, sells for $26-hundred dollars a pound.

Part of the reason it's so expensive is that it contains a rare French "Perigord" truffle. Then, the dark chocolate is drowned in heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla before being rolled in fine cocoa powder.  A single piece costs $250-dollars.

The expensive chocolate has been officially certified by Guinness.


Man Proposes While Being Arrested

This guy in Oklahoma picked a strange time to ask his girlfriend to marry him.

Cops in Muskogee were arresting BRANDON THOMPSON on multiple outstanding warrants at his home over the weekend.  That's when he suddenly dropped to one knee and popped the question.  His hands were cuffed behind his back, which made it hard to show his girlfriend the ring he'd bought.

Cops did Thompson a favor and re-cuffed his hands in front of his body so he could hand her the ring.

His girlfriend, LEANDRIA KEITH said "yes" and he was taken to jail. She says she's ready to spend the rest of her life with him.

His outstanding warrants are for things like possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of a controlled substance, and failure to appear in court.  Those could lead to some serious prison time, so this might be a long engagement.  Click here to see the video.


A Guy Diving For Golf Balls Is Attacked By an Alligator

I feel like anytime you go into murky water in Florida, you almost HAVE to expect this.

A 50-year-old man, who chooses to remain unidentified, was diving for golf balls at a country club in Rotonda West, Florida over the weekend, and he wasn't alone. 

There was also an ALLIGATOR in there.  Probably not diving for golf balls, although I guess you never know.

Anyway, the gator bit him on the left arm.  The guy managed to get away, but he needed to be rushed to the hospital with a pretty legit arm injury.  We can only hope for a speedy recovery.
