The photo was accom­pa­nied by a slo­gan, “Because acci­dents don’t just hap­pen to oth­ers, insur­ance will also cover you for any tem­po­rary injuries.” Appar­ently the pic­ture of a squir­rel caught hang­ing upside down by his dan­gle parts on a bird feeder did not amuse.   Many of the bank’s 24,000 Face­book fol­low­ers thought the account had been hacked.

A Florida man is behind bars after mak­ing a trip to Dis­ney World the unhap­pi­est place on earth by attack­ing sev­eral cos­tumed cast mem­bers with a piece of PVC pipe!  Austin De Van Hill, 23, who was described as “extremely intox­i­cated,” was vis­it­ing the resort for its annual Food and Wine Fes­ti­val. He began scream­ing unin­tel­li­gi­ble phrases at the top of his lungs before lung­ing at one of the cast mem­bers, then punch­ing a sec­ond who tried to keep him from steal­ing one of the golf carts used in the park’s events. De Van Hill, a Naval Acad­emy grad­u­ate and foot­ball player, was taken to a nearby hos­pi­tal, before being trans­ported to jail, where he was charged with assault.
