From a movie theatre accidentally traumitizing children to a man suing his wife for giving birth to an ugly baby, THV's Tom Brannon catches you up on some Weird But True headlines.
It was an unsuspected fright night for a group of British youngsters last week.
A movie theater in England experienced an unfortunate snafu, when instead of screening "Madagascar 3" to an auditorium full of kids, it accidentally projected "Paranormal Activity 4" on the silver screen.
According to a blog from Yahoo! Movies U.K., the parents grabbed their kids and ran from the theater.
The movie theater apologized for the error, refunded ticket costs, and later screened the real "Madagascar 3" for the folks who stuck around.
A spokesperson said, "We take matters such as this very seriously and are currently working with technicians to ensure this does not happen again."
And if you tuned in to the Jets/Dolphins game yesterday, you probably noticed the pink penalty flags.
Get this -- an 11-year-old boy was behind it.
Fifth grader Dante Cano wrote a letter to Commissioner Roger Goodell, asking that pink flags be used during the game.
Goodell embraced the idea and suggested Dante present the refs with the flags.
Cano says he was inspired while helping care for his 14-year-old sister, who can't walk or talk.
Goodell said the league will consider using pink penalty flags next season during the NFL's month of breast cancer awareness. He added that he frequently gets suggestions from fans but this is probably "the biggest one we did."
And in more weird but true news, a woman in China was sued by her husband after she gave birth to a baby the husband considered so ugly he insisted she must have had an affair.
When it came to light the woman had had a lot of plastic surgery before they met and the new daughter merely inherited her old face, the man not only divorced his wife, but sued her for the equivalent of $120,000 -- and won.
The presiding judge ruled the man had technically married the woman under "false pretenses."
