Peruvian surfer Domingo Pianezzi loves to ride the waves--so much so, in fact, that he's made it his mission to share the experience with different animals he comes across. Over the years, Pianezzi has become quite accustomed to teaching all manner of furry and feathered friends how to surf, but for the first time yesterday he hit the waves with an alpaca, to raise awareness of the animal iconic in Peruvian culture, I guess. Not surprisingly, the poor alpaca doesn't seem to be having such a gnarly time.
Property Developers Bury Defiant Grandma Alive
Owen Lift tried everything to persuade his good friend Larry Donner to Throw Momma from the Train, but he had a change of heart at the last minute.

A Walmart store announcement ordering black people to leave brought chagrin and apologies Wednesday from leaders of the company, which has built a fragile trust among minority communities.
A male voice came over the public-address system Sunday evening at a store in Washington Township, in southern New Jersey, and calmly announced: "Attention, Walmart customers: All black people, leave the store now."
Shoppers in the store at the time said a manager quickly got on the public-address system and apologized for the remark. And while it was unclear whether a rogue patron or an employee was responsible for the comment, many customers expressed their anger to store management.
