Miss Delaware Porn vs. The Beast Of Tenby: The Weird News Top 10 Showdown

03/03/2013 08:54 am ET | Updated Mar 04, 2013

There she is . . . Miss Sex Scandal 2013.

Melissa King's fall from glory this week was as swift as it was predictable.

The former Miss Teen Delaware USA winner turned in her tiara soon after stories emerged that she'd been featured in amateur porn -- an allegation she denied.

Nevertheless, the pageant winner was soon left weighing her next career move, which, of course, included a $250,000 offer to be Miss YouPorn.

To be sure, nudity is hardly a career killer. This week, HuffPost Weird News cheered on Germany's topless sledding competition and extolled the virtues of Naked Vegan Cooking, if only for the practitioners' ability not to burn themselves at the stove.

It's a different story when you're stuck outside your hotel room naked while trying to set your room service tray in the hall. In that case, your next stop is YouTube infamy.

The threat of a little embarrassment, however, didn't stop Earlie Johnson from stepping forward when his world-class, $7,500 porn collection was stolen.

Reporter Dave Moye closely followed the case of the "purloined porn," as he put it. Johnson became an instant media star. But after his fiancee joined him on Jimmy Kimmel's show, she lost her job, apparently because some people feel touchy about extolling the virtues of porn on national TV.

We also took on some unexplained phenomenas -- a creature that washed up on beach in Wales, dubbed by locals as the "Beast of Tenby," a Bird Turd Jesus in Brooklyn Ohio, and the world's most lethal killer sinkholes.

Finally, the feel-good story of the week emerged from Scotland's Edinburgh Zoo, where officials say they're trying to get pandas to mate by playing Marvin Gaye's music.

Don't worry, Tian Tian, we all sometimes need a little "Sexual Healing."
