This Week in Weird News: It’s So Damn Hot Edition
By Kevin Christian L. Santos
In news this week, T@*G!^@ ANG INIT! It’s so damn hot that it’s a bad idea to do just about anything. You just want to strip down to nothing, stand in front of an electric fan and rub ice cubes all over your singit.
We are all Ace Ventura.
This heat is driving everyone to do all sorts of WTF-shenanigans. Stuff like….
8. Jared Leto is a terrible person during Suicide Squad’s filming
Considering he has to follow up Heath Ledger’s iconic performance as the Joker, Jared Leto has a lot on his plate when he plays the clown prince of crime in Suicide Squad. An interview with E! Online reveals that the actor wasn’t messing around when he got into character. He sent cast members a dead pig, a live rat, and… used condoms and anal beads. Leto went in and went full Joker. Just imagine how his portrayal will be like. Hopefully better than Rene Requiestas’.
7. Imam performs exorcism on schoolgirl
A creepy video has emerged of what appears to be a roadside exorcism on a girl claiming to be possessed by evil spirits. The Mirror reports that girl is being “cleansed” in the video by an imam. She snarls, growls, hisses and rocks back and forth while the man performs a cleansing ritual. Reports say that the girl in the video above is one of 20 schoolgirls from Jean Lafosse College in St Louis on the French Indian Ocean island of Réunion, who had been suffering from screaming episodes.
Meanwhile, we’ll adjust our diapers and get on our way to buy some garlic and holy water. Also, we have an old priest and a young priest on speed dial.
6. Alligator eats another alligator because of course it will
Here’s something you don’t see every day: an alligator engaging in cannibalism. Though rarely seen, the act is actually typical as some gators eat their own as a means to control the population. This is even more common during mating season.
The incident was captured at the Circle B Bar Reserve in Florida. Now, if our buwayas in congress start eating each other alive until there’s no one left, the Philippines will be a much better place.

While some kids become best buds with a teddy bear, this cute toddler established a friendship with something that’s meant to scare birds: an owl lawn ornament.

Now, one-year old Sylvie does everything with her beloved owl, which she named “Whootie.” They take naps, car rides, and even go grocery shopping together. They’re almost the same size, but young Sylvie looks and treats Whootie as her best friend. Awww.
We don’t know if we can do the same. Not sure if we can be friends with something that looks like it’s plotting our violent death.
