Kids have been known to tell some whoppers, but this one is all-time.

A 10-year-old boy in Norway stole his parents' car while they were sleeping and attempted to drive himself and his 18-month-old sister to their grandparents' home.

Grandma and grandpa live 68 miles away, for those keeping score.

Dwarf Carjacking

The youth impressively made it about six miles before he veered off the road and was spotted by a local snowplow driver who dutifully called the police.

Yes, he attempted this in hazardous winter conditions no less.

According to Baard Christiansen of the Vest Oppland police, "The boy told the snowplow driver he was a dwarf and had left his driver’s license at home."

Two teenage boys in Texas are charged with killing a 15-year-old girl, citing a deal they were attempting to make with the devil, according to reports.

Jose Reyes, 17, kidnapped Corriann Cervantes back on February 5 and ultimately killed her with a toilet tank lid, according to Houston court documents.

A 16-year-old boy, who is unidentified because of his age, was also charged. Their disturbing reason for committing this heinous act is just unbelievable:

Jose Reyes Mug Shot

"They discussed the fact that Mr. Reyes had sold his soul to the devil," Assistant Harris County District Attorney John Jordan told the Houston Chronicle.

"And if they ended up killing this teenager," he went on describing the alleged pact, "it would also allow the 16-year-old to also sell his soul to the devil."

Three days after Cervantes was killed, her partially-clothed body was found in an abandoned apartment with an upside-down cross carved into her stomach.

Jordan added the girl had been stabbed, beaten and sexually assaulted.

Satan-worshipping Craigslist murderer Miranda Barbour says not to worry ... she's killed fewer than 100 people. More than 22, but still in the double digits.

The killer, whose alter ego is named "Super Miranda," is in a Pennsylvania jail after slaughtering a man she located by responding to sex ad on Craigslist.

Miranda Barbour, 19, says she lied and said she was 16. When Troy LaFerrera said he'd have sex with her anyway, she lost it and stabbed him repeatedly.

She admitted this crime, as well as 22 other murders, then dropped a bigger bombshell in an interview with Francis Scarcella of the The Daily Item.

Scarcella pressed the teen, who met her husband in a Satanic cult, on the number of people she killed. She said, "When I hit 22, I stopped counting."

As Scarcella pushed her, she blurted out: "It's less than 100."

She would not be more specific ... so it's between 22-99.

Happy Presidents Day 2014 from all of us at The Hollywood Gossip!

Today, we honor two titans of history, two true heroes peerless in their time. Two American badasses who were so awesome, you get a day off from work because of them.

George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, people. Bow down.

The very first President of the United States, Washington led the rebellion over Great Britain, then helped oversee the birth of our great nation's constitution.

Four score and seven years later, Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address, vying to preserve the union his predecessors fought valiantly for. He delivered.

Long story short? They were legends of their era and today. Ranking their achievements and legacies is impossible ... but that's no fun, so let's try anyway!

Vote for your favorite President in our survey below!

And the Winner is?

They were both A-plus chief executives, but which U.S. President do you love more, Abraham Lincoln or George Washington? That's what we wanna know! View Poll »

Michael Dunn was found guilty on four charges, including three for attempted second-degree murder, in connection with a shooting involving an SUV full of teens.

Dunn allegedly got into an argument with them over loud music.

He is looking at decades in prison, and yet there was no verdict on the first-degree murder charge related to the death of 17-year-old Jordan Davis.

Dunn's lawyer, Cory Strolla, told reporters on Saturday that his client was "in disbelief ... even as he sat next to me, he asked, how is this happening."

"It has not set in. I don't think it will set in anytime soon."

The incomplete finale to this emotional, hot-button trial, largely because of the fact that Dunn is white and the teens who were shot at, including Davis, are black.

For many, the Florida case echoed George Zimmerman's trial for the killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin about 120 miles down the road in Sanford.

Miranda Barbour, a 19-year-old Pennsylvania girl, admits to not only killing a guy who hired her for sex on Craigslist, but a bunch of other people as well.

A BUNCH of other people. "When I hit 22, I stopped counting," she says.

Barbour is currently in a Pennsylvania jail awaiting trial for the murder of Troy LaFerrara, who she allegedly stabbed 20 times during a Craigslist encounter.

The reason? She tested him and said she was only 16, and he responded that he'd still have sex with her. A molestation victim, Barbour lost it on him.

Gruesome, but not nearly as shocking as when Barbour said in a jailhouse interview over the weekend that she's been killing people since she was 13.

Like Dexter, she insists she only dispatches of society's miscreants, claiming that "I did this to people who did bad things and didn't deserve to be here anymore."

Torz Reynolds, a 26-year-old British woman, had an interesting reaction to her boyfriend cheating on her. She literally cut him off ... or at least the tattoo of his name.

In a heartwarming story worthy of Valentine's Day 2014, she sliced off the ink, then sent the skin to him in the mail, along with a photo of her half-dissected arm.

Reynolds, of Colchester, UK, said 24-year-old Stuart "Chopper" May claimed he was moving to Alaska to pursue a job, but it turned out he was just shacking up with a new lady.

When Torz found out, she tore him a new one ... and used a scalpel to remove the entire section of skin where the words "Chopper's Bitch" were tattooed on her.

The fact that she had "Chopper's Bitch" inked on her in the first place?

That tells you a lot here. Just saying. Anyway, boy was she PISSED!

Reynolds numbed the area with Vasocaine spray before slicing a rectangle around the area, then using tweezers to peel it off the skin. It's as bad as it sounds.

Or worse. CLICK HERE for the NSFW pic of the removed tattoo.

When you're a kid, getting a snow day is always exciting.

But for a pair of administrators at the Durham Academy in North Carolina, a scrolling feed at the bottom of the news station wasn't nearly a good enough way to announce it.

Instead, they rewrote Vanilla Ice's classic "Ice Ice Baby" in the best closing announcement ever ...

This video raises so many questions:

  • How long did it take to write this?
  • Have they been planning it for months, just hoping for an ice storm?
  • Why weren't my school administrators so hot yet dorky?
  • Do kids these days even get Vanilla Ice references?
  • How did that guy get an Olympic sweater???

I look forward to future school closing videos. May I suggest the Frozen soundtrack for inspiration?

As if the Sochi Olympics needed another disappointment, Evgeni Plushenko has withdrawn from competition ... and the sport that made him famous.

With his hands on his heart and a brave smile on his face, the figure skating great was escorted off the ice by his coach moments just into his routine.

The announcer told a shocked audience of his decision.

The 31-year-old skater was one of the most anticipated men's competitors of the games.

He had undergone back surgery in 2013 but had spoken hopefully of his recovery and was trying to add another medal to his collection.

He earned a gold medal in 2006, two silvers in 2002 and 2010, and has already won the team gold medal in Sochi this year.

An AP tweet confirms Plushenko has retired from skating entirely.

Your Valentine's Day plans maybe romantic but this couple has you beat.

Olympia DeNittis and Michael DeNittis were childhood sweethearts, lifelong friends, and married for 67 years until they died a mere 32 hours apart last week, unaware of the other's passing.

Married Couple

Olympia, 95, had been suffering from pneumonia and was admitted to hospice care when she refused to eat. She passed away Sunday, February 2. around 4:30 a.m.

“I think she was dying of a broken heart, but I also think she wanted to pass first so he wouldn’t have to enter heaven without her there to welcome him,” said her granddaughter AnnMarie McDonald.

“And when my grandmother made up her mind to do something, she did it. She did this as a testament to their love."
