Dumb Criminals: Man Cons Wife Into $750K That He Spends On Mistress

He puts the bum in Beach Bum Tanning.

A wealthy Manhattan woman says a tanning salon employee she married duped her out of $700,000, telling her he needed the money to pay off gambling debts.

In reality, Steven Lalicata's "gambling debt" was a girlfriend in New Jersey who liked to be showered with jewelry and presents, according to court papers.

Now burned bride Candice Feinberg Lalicata, 39, is suing her sneaky spouse, his girlfriend and the friends who allegedly helped con her for $10 million.

The schemers led Lalicata "to believe that her husband, Steven Lalicata, whom she had recently married, owed large gambling debts to members of organized crime. Through a series of coordinated communications, they led her to believe physical well-being would be in jeopardy if she did not make huge amounts of cash available to him on short notice," her Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit says.


Giant Inflatable Duck Explodes During Taiwanese New Year's Celebration

TAIPEI (AFP) - A giant yellow duck on display in a northern Taiwan port exploded on Tuesday, just hours before it was expected to attract a big crowd to count down the new year.

The 18m tall duck on show at Keelung burst around noon and deflated into a floating yellow disc, only 11 days after it went on display.

It was the second time that a giant inflatable duck - a bath toy replica created by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman - had burst while on show in Taiwan.

"We want to apologise to the fans of the yellow rubber duck.... the weather is fine today and we haven't found the cause of the problem. We will carefully examine the duck to determine the cause," organiser Huang Jing-tai told reporters.


High School Hockey Goalie Flips Off Coach And Scores Goal In Own Net, Then Quits

A frustrated Minnesota high school senior goalie scores on his net with a 2-1 lead.

Farmington high school (Minn.) held a 2-1 lead over Chaska high school with just over three minutes remaining in the third period of their game on Thursday night when the truly bizarre happened.

Farmington senior goalie Austin Krause retrieved a puck behind his net, skated to the crease and put the puck in his net. Krause then proceeded to remove his gloves, and while skating off the ice, turned to his bench, flipped them off and gave them a salute before exiting the ice.
