If that’s just the tip of the WTF iceberg this week, then prepare yourself for impact because it’s time for “The Week In WHAT?!”
Behold the Power of Nutella
When your heart desires the luxuriously creamy combo of chocolate and hazelnut, your brain kicks into overdrive as you plan your attack on the nearest jar of Nutella. If you know the feeling, then you can probably sympathize with an unidentified group of crafty thieves that lifted over five tons of the popular Italian spread in central Germany.

The family plans to file a complaint with the state of Indiana. As if going to the dentist wasn’t already a traumatic experience…

Nevertheless, a Fox News reporter now finds herself in the mix of the story after sharing details from an anonymous source while covering the trial of alleged Aurora, Colorado shooter James Holmes. The defense attorney believes Jana Winter’s source violated a protective order. Failure to reveal who leaked the information could land Winter in jail. As Voltaire, Peter Parker’s Uncle Ben and other great philosophers often say, “with great power comes great responsibility!”
Dogs Do the Darndest Things

Either way, if Hollywood decides to revamp the Air Bud movies, Millie is a shoo-in for the part after showing off her skills while her owners watched a televised game. Check out her moves:
And there you have this week in “WHAT?!” Can’t wait to see what’s in store for humanity next!
