Canadian diver caught in ‘poonado’
Ah, the deep ocean. It’s mysterious, beautiful, and apparently, very smelly. Keri Wilk, 30, was taking underwater photos of a sperm whale when he suddenly became engulfed in a giant cloud of feces after the animal started defecating repeatedly. Describing it as a “poonado,” Wilk said the colour of the Caribbean water went from “crystal clear” to “chocolate milk.” “I couldn’t see my hand when I held it in front of my face,” he said. His team documented the disgusting ordeal in the video below:

Cat digs out of Florida grave five days after being hit by car
This cat must’ve had unfinished business. A Florida feline has been dubbed “zombie cat” after it literally crawled back from the dead. It all started earlier this month, after Bart the cat was hit by a car. Unable to deal with the grief of burying his prized pet, the owner asked his neighbour to dig a shallow grave. But five days later, there he was — matted and meowing for food. Bart did have some pretty serious injuries when they found him, but the Save-A-Pet Medical Fund helped cover the costs associated with his surgeries. The little guy is expected to recover in about six weeks.
Naked sniper on rooftop in Palm Beach apprehended by SWAT team
Looks like there’s a new American sniper in town. Authorities say a “psychotic” naked man armed with a handgun was rolling around on a rooftop and threatening to harm himself. But once he fired a shot into the air, police immediately evacuated the area. SWAT officers were quickly able to breach the building, and the suspect surrendered peacefully. No injuries have been reported.

Larry Markword reappointed to county board despite dying in 2012
So he’s dead. No biggie, right? Officials in western Pennsylvania are scratching their heads over how a man who’s been dead for more than two years wound up being reappointed to a county industrial authority board. Their findings? The board apparently never bothered actually checking in with Markwood before reappointing him. Plus the industrial authority hadn’t met since 2010, so attendance records weren’t very helpful either.
