Moms don't have it easy, we understand. And sometimes a kid's just got to eat. But when hunger strikes while you're driving down the interstate, you can't just start breastfeeding while you're driving.

A Washington woman learned this lesson the hard way this week, when she was cited for breastfeeding her child while driving. Now she may get a call from Child Protective Services.

It's like my mother always told me: put criminal court proceedings in Florida on a live webcam, and you just might end up with a porn star flashing the judge. Now that might sound like nothing more than folksy wisdom to you, but that's exactly what happened in a Broward County court last week.

Popular county judge John Hurley and the rest of his courtroom caught an eye-full when Susan "Kayla Kupcakes" Surrette attempted to demonstrate injuries she received during her arrest.

We've all had that moment, right? Just after a heated exchange we think of the exact right thing to say. Well what if it doesn't hit you until 30 years later? Is that too late to pick up the argument?

One man in Kentucky didn't think so, and his effort to win an argument with his deceased father landed him in jail.

Twenty-year-olds: Do you have 15 luxury sports cars, but want one more? Who doesn't! Are you in the difficult position of having a Ferrari 458 Italia but wanting a brand, spanking new Ferrari 458 Italia? We've all been there! Worried your Swiss millionaire dad won't buy it for you? Ugh, parents!

But as hard as it may seem, just ask your pops for that new $300,000 car -- don't hire two goons to set it on fire.
