Adam Griffiths is a member of the California Highway Patrol and works out of San Diego.
On Saturday, he was patrolling a highway in La Mesa, California when he saw something bizarre: A guy in a full Easter Bunny costume driving an old-timey motorcycle with a SIDECAR attached.
The guy DID have the rabbit head on . . . but he DIDN'T have a helmet on.
So Griffiths radioed in, quote, "I'm stopping the Easter Bunny." Then he pulled the guy over and gave him a lecture on safety. During the lecture, Griffiths' partner took a photo . . . which is pretty much GUARANTEED to be a viral sensation.
Griffiths was nice enough NOT to give the Easter Bunny a ticket . . . just a warning.
(--So the guy took off his head, put it in the sidecar, and headed to a charity event. We're assuming he must have had another helmet.)
On Saturday, 44-year-old Pedro Quezada of Passaic, New Jersey was the sole winner of a $338 MILLION Powerball jackpot. The media instantly picked up on the story that he's a hardworking Dominican immigrant whose life just changed forever.
Well, it sure did. Because winning hundreds of millions of dollars brings you A LOT of attention. And some of the attention on Pedro came from the COPS.
Because it turns out he's not JUST the winner of the fourth-largest Powerball jackpot ever . . . he's also a DEADBEAT DAD.
Pedro has five children . . . and owes $29,000 in child support, going all the way back to 2009. ONE DAY after he won, the sheriff's department was knocking on his door.
And while we understand he's hardworking, he's struggled financially, and these have been tough years . . . we can't sympathize with a guy who didn't make his child support payments.
Under lottery policy, that child support will automatically be deducted from his winnings. After taking the lump sum and paying taxes, Pedro's take will be $152MILLION. So let's HOPE he's not late on child support anymore.
Tax season is a good time to sit back and reflect at just how STUPID we all can be with our money. A new survey asked people to name the DUMBEST financial mistake they made in the past year. Here are the top 10 results. And who knows, maybe they'll make you feel better since at least SOME of these won't apply to you . . .
#1.) Overdrawing from your checking account.
#2.) Only making the minimum payments on your credit cards.
#3.) Making LATE payments on your credit cards.
#4.) Making late payments on OTHER bills, or your rent.
#5.) Loaning money to a friend or family member that wasn't paid back.
#6.) Not knowing your credit score.
#7.) Borrowing money from a friend or family member that you couldn't repay.
#8.) Investing in the stock market.
#9.) Co-signing a loan that was defaulted on.
#10.) Buying a house.
Over a million people have watched this video of a young man asking his dream girl Sofia to Prom. He sings some original lyrics to the tune of Jason Mraz's hit I'm Yours. He has a good voice so that helps! She says yes. How could she say no? Well done sir.
Dear the internet: local news is on to you.
After an intense hail storm in Brookshire, TX, just west of Houston, reporters from KPRC Local 2 News went out to get some reactions. They ended up with a viral-ready one in an interview with resident Michelle Clark, heretofore known as "Kabooyow Lady".
If you watch all the way to the end of this clip, you get the sense that Clark knows exactly what she's doing... something in that smile says, "Hello, internet, nice to meet you."

Apparently, tomorrow is National Chip and Dip Day. And according to a survey by Tostitos, one in four people admit that they've double-dipped a chip.
Young people are more likely to do it. Two in five people under age 35 say they've double-dipped. 46% of young guys say they've done it . . . compared to only 32% of young women.
54% of people say that if they saw someone else double-dip, they'd stay away from the dip for the rest of the night . . . and 25% would say something to the person. But 22% say they'd use it as an excuse to double-dip themselves.
And here's another violation of chip-and-dip etiquette you should be aware of: 45% of people say that the correct way to dip is to go straight in and out . . . instead of scooping to get more dip.
30-year-old Chris Mordetzky is a former WWE wrestler. He was called CHRIS "THE MASTERPIECE" MASTERS in WWE until they released him in 2011. Now he lives in Los Angeles and wrestles at independent shows. He's also INSANELY RIPPED.
On Wednesday night, he got a call from his uncle. Chris's mom was at her house in L.A. when her INSANE NEIGHBOR stormed in, BARRICADED them both in the house . . . and threatened to set the house on FIRE.
Chris rushed over . . . and when he got there, the neighbor DID set the house on fire.
So Chris RIPPED A TREE OUT OF THE GROUND, THREW IT through a WINDOW, reached into the house, and pulled his mother out. That's right around when the LAPD got there. They stormed in and arrested the neighbor for arson.
It's not clear why the neighbor went crazy. Thankfully, Chris's mom wasn't badly injured in the chaos.
Jake Davidson had a date with Kate Upton Wednesday morning -- on the phone. After posting a viral video asking the Sports Illustrated model to prom, the Los Angeles high school senior appeared on the TODAY show March 20 and got a surprise phone call from Upton herself.
Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb got the supermodel on the line to speak directly with Davidson, 17, about his prom request. "I absolutely love the video," the Sports Illustrated cover star, 20, said of his Youtube video posted on March 16. "It was so hilarious and so creative. Thank you so much for doing that, I really appreciate it."
