Sexting isn't just a bad idea, it can also land you in jail.

After receiving an anonymous tip of nude photos posted on a Twitter account, the James City County Police Department in Virginia has charged a 16 year old girl with one count of distributing child pornography... for pictures she took of herself.

The nude selfies were shared on Twitter as well as sent to some boys. Police say the lewdness of the photos crossed the line from sexting to child pornography. 

The teen and her mother could be forced to complete a Sexting Education class as well as facing jail time.

Anyone who has the photos and shares them with friends could potentially be charged with distribution of child pornography. 

The girl's phone was confiscated as part of the investigation, which might be the only part of this story that doesn't leave me shaking my head.

Check out some selfies that are less likely to land people in jail...

The grand opening of a parody coffee shop called “Dumb Starbucks” in Los Angeles' Los Feliz neighborhood became an Internet sensation this weekend.

The mock store is nearly identical to a typical Starbucks location, with tumblers for sale and trendy CDs, including "Dumb Jazz Standards," on display.

The menu features “Dumb Iced Coffee,” “Dumb Frappuccinos,” and a “Wuppy Duppy Latte” ... and pastries straight from their supermarket packaging.

Only iced coffees and lattes were available, though - for free, to promote the business - an upbeat barista told people after apologizing for the wait.

As word of the shop spread online, curious residents came to snap selfies in front of the sign or photos of the line wrapped around the strip mall.

Rumors about the Dumb Starbucks store’s origin spread through the crowd. Is it a marketing ploy? A pop-up art installation? A reality TV show?

Whatever it is, it's very L.A.

A thousand students recently checked into a Kentucky hotel and what did they do? They sang their little patriotic hearts out in unison, of course!

Michelle Johnson, who was on a work trip staying in the same location, caught the youngsters belting their number on video for all the Internet to see. 

What a world we live in, folks. The group collectively belted out the Star-Spangled Banner for yourself in the video, as you can see. U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!

The teens stood on 18 different levels of the hotel and sang the national anthem together in honor of the Olympics. The results are pure magic. 

Calling the cast of Glee! These kids are giving you a run for your money, guys...

Google's home page is not only celebrating the start of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games, they're taking a stand for equality. 

Their latest Doodle represents sports from the Winter Olympics in its letters. The images are set in front of a series of rainbow colors from the gay pride flag, a probable nod to Russia's stance on gay rights.

Olympic Google Homepage Doodle

Below the search bar is a quote from the Olympic Charter, which gives individuals the "possibility of practicing sport, without discrimination of any kind."

Russia has been under immense criticism for their position on gay rights following legislation that bans pro-gay "propaganda" that could be accessible to minors. 

The 2014 Sochi opening ceremonies are set to begin tonight. 

What do you think of Google's logo?

Just one week after a newborn baby boy was named one of the largest ever born, he's no longer even the largest on record in California in 2014.

Sosefina Tagalu of Daly City, Calif. delivered Sammisano Joshua Talai Otuhiva in August, but had no idea he might be the biggest ever in the state.

"Everyone was guessing before we weighed him," said Tagalu to The Huffington Post. "The nurses were guessing 10 or 11 and the doctor guessed 14."

The result: 16 pounds, 1.7 ounces.

The family did not tealize the birth may have been a record breaker until another California baby, Andrew Jacob Cervantez, made headlines in January.

At 15 pounds, 2 ounces almost a full pound lighter than baby Sammisano, newspapers hailed Cervantez as "the largest baby ever born in California."

So much for that!

American Apparel, the brand that brought us public hair mannequins, menstruating vagina shirts and other notable fashion moments, has outdone itself here.

The company recently posted a thong ad on Tumblr that just made the 62-year-old lingerie model who made headlines last month seem downright dull.

If the fact that we slapped our logo on the image didn't make it painfully obvious (as painful as it would be to ride a bike in that thing), here's a spoiler alert:

  • There is arse hole visible
  • It is waxed and reddish

You might even call it "sidehole" if you were looking for a term for it. Speaking of which, how you pitch a prospective model on posing for this particular campaign?

"Say, we need you to pedal a bicycle in a thong with your skirt hiked up to your armpits ... oh, and we also need you to wax inside the crack. #kthxbai."

Check out the eye-opping ad in question by clicking below and tell us if it's as bad as the American Apparel vagina shirt or other outstanding products:

Administrators at a Northern California private school are apologizing after their Black History Month school lunch menu caused a great deal of controversy.

On the menu were fried chicken, cornbread and watermelon ... seriously.

Somehow, the above items were what they came up with.

Officials held an assembly on campus to discuss the issue and sent an apology letter to parents after the lunch controversy blew up and sparked outcry.

"I'd like to apologize for the announcement and any hurt this caused students, parents or community members," Principal Nancy Libby said in the letter.

A wanted woman living who escaped from a Michigan prison 37 years ago was found living in San Diego, California, authorities reported Tuesday.

A woman fitting Hayman's description answered the door and produced government documents with the name Jamie Lewis, according to San Diego police Lt. Kevin Mayer.

Her eyes gave her away," Mayer said, following the long-overdue capture.

"The eyes in the picture matched the eyes of this woman."
