Leeanna Brown, a 24-year-old mother in Kentucky, allegedly tried selling her newborn baby daughter. Not once, but twice. How does that work, exactly?

She first tried selling her baby for $5,000 to an unnamed person, but the deal fell apart. The second time, Brown gave the baby to Luonda Martin, her cousin.

As part of the alleged deal, Brown wanted Martin to pay her court costs and fines for another case she had pending, local station WAVE 3 News reports.

It has not been confirmed whether Martin paid Brown, but the bizarre case has taken another twist as now the biological mother wants the infant back.

Tuesday, Martin showed up at a local police station and told cops that she had been under the impression Brown had given her custody of the child.

This is one of the sweetest stories you'll ever read.

Ready for another shocking story out of China?

This one does not involve a husband suing his estranged wife for giving him an ugly child. Nor does it have anything to do with a man attempting a vaginal exorcism with his penis.

Instead, it centers on a very extreme reaction to a very common situation.

According to Chinese television station CCTV, a 38-year old named Tao Hsiao was arguing with his girlfriend over the weekend inside a mall in Jiangsu province.

Onlookers overheard him telling the unnamed companion that she had already bought enough, with one witness saying:

Caran Johnson, a resident of Washington State known by her Twitter handle @ScanCouve, often live tweets traffic updates that she hears on her police scanner.

Last week, this unknowingly live tweeted her own husband's death on I-205.

Her husband, 47-year-old Craig Johnson, died after his vehicle inexplicably crossed from the northbound lanes into southbound I-205 and hit a pick-up truck.

He passed away before help arrived, but there was a gap between when his wife knew there had been an accident and finding out who was involved.

Amazingly, and tragically, it all played out on Twitter in real time:

A California college student has done something very unusual this holiday season. She recently posted an ad on Craigslist, asking to rent a family this month.

Jackie Turner, who comes from a broken home, writes in her advertisement:

"I am looking to rent a mom and dad who can give me attention and make me feel like the light of their life just for a couple of days because I really need it."

It's more than just a cute Craigslist ad, though. Her story is inspirational.

"On the outside, it looks like I'm the American dream kid," the 26-year-old said. "But I have a back story that most people wouldn't believe if they looked at me today."

Jackie was physically, sexually and emotionally abused since she was a child. She spent years living on the streets to avoid it, but this meant more problems.

"I was in gang life, on the streets, fighting, doing drugs, just making a mess of my life," she said, adding that she was arrested for grand theft in Sacramento.

One victim of the so-called Knockout Game says there is no such "game" or even necessarily a trend, just a media fabrication to make a story out of assault.

That's what James Addlespurger believes, anyway.

The Pittsburgh teacher was seen on video in October 2012 getting hit in the back of the head so hard that he blacked out and fell face-first into the pavement.

Addlespurger says the security footage has been used to identify the supposed "trend," and it's played on TV news shows countless times since.

He won't call the awful attack a "Knockout Game," however.

He simply calls it "assault," and he's not happy about it.

Oreo cookies are as addictive as cocaine. So are Oreo cookie balls and if you've ever eaten one (or a dozen) of them (in one sitting) you know I'm telling the truth.

Fans of catchy advertising, Oreo commissioned hip-hop artist Jinx for their latest ad which pays tribute to fan-created cookie balls, delightful concoctions made from crushed up Oreos mixed with cream cheese which are then dipped in chocolate. 

The jingle features lines such as "I'm making something I'll be givin' all y'all. Come Christmas morning you gon' taste some cookie balls." and promises that parties where Oreo cookie balls are served will be "off the hook." 

This song is as catchy as Oreo cookie balls themselves.

Another wave of the future is upon us: Handsfree driving!

For those who need to eek out just a little more productivity in their day or just want to peruse Facebook on their morning commute without worrying about mowing down a crosswalk full of five year olds, look no further than Steeri, the world's first driverless app*!

The comedians behind The Smart Department decided to showcase what happens when Siri's cousin Steeri gets behind the wheel.

"Never before has the driver had quite so much control!"

Hashtag: Famous Last Words.

*FYI: Steeri isn't a real thing - yet - and this is just satire. Driving is still best left to real humans. Or most of them anyway.
