Playing the crash cymbals for the 'Star Spangled Banner' in your school band is kind of a big deal. It's definitely the most dramatic part of the song, and it only gets more dramatic when one of the cymbals breaks. What does one do when such a nightmare occurs?

Man Buys Poodles, Discovers They’re Actually Ferrets on Steroids
This is not a joke. A man at the largest outdoor bazaar in Buenos Aires bought two toy poodles from a vendor for $150 each. Only he didn't actually buy two poodles. He actually bought two ferrets that were hopped up on steroids and given fancy hairdos so they would look like poodles.
