James Holmes Groupie vs. Gold-Plated AK-47: The Weird News Top 10 (VOTE)

The must-have sicko accessory of the week, a $50,000, gold-plated, diamond-studded AK-47, was found in a police raid on an accused Honduran drug lord's ranch -- and if you don't know what to get Wayne LaPierre for his 65 birthday in November, consider your problem solved.

The world has become so dangerous that nudists now fear young children won't be able to run, skip and frolic in the raw at the upcoming Nude Olympics.

Luckily, we have our share of badass heroes -- a San Diego man who kicked the tar out of an iPhone bandit; a Virgina Labradoodle that can pass himself off as a lion; and a heavily tattooed presidential candidate who's proving to be more than a sideshow in the upcoming Czech election.
