This was the best place to put this I think, anyhow its not really controversial, but still kind of wtf since its not something that happens often and even less often caught on camera.

Don't worry the humans are safe and not hurt. 2 people kayaking in the ocean off the California coast ended up in a humpback whales mouth, the whale was feeding in the area, humans and kayak are not on the list so the whale spit them out.

Despite their enormous size humpback whales have a small esophagus and adult humans are too big for the whales to swallow so they get spit out.

Police identify man suspected of theft of Pope John Paul II's blood
Italian police have identified the man suspected of stealing a vial containing the blood of Pope John Paul II from a cathedral in the Umbria region...Police believe it may have ended up on the parallel market, possibly in the hands of collectors, as such relics are of great religious value.

With all due respect to Christians/Catholics, I find the relic thing downright peculiar.

My card-carrying Catholic husband thinks it's peculiar too.

Speaking of Catholic relics (not looking at you scouse!), another botched restoration attempt in Spain has earned the title Mr Potato Head. The before and after photos will show why.
