Who else got their International Women’s Day celebrations on this weekend? In honor of the occasion, we recommend checking out some of our favorite modern day hot messes, who prove that sometimes you have to laugh off life’s strange, awkward situations — because everyone’s been there at some point!

Of course, before you do, catch up on some of the wildest news items of the week with “The Week In WHAT?!” (PS: Don’t forget to spring forward!)

Just Like a Tattoo, I’ll Always Have You

In yet another attempt to treat pets like people, a Brooklyn man took dressing up his dog to a new dimension. He gave his pup a permanent heart tattoo. The man began to draw public attention after posting the photo to Instagram and boasting about the ink. “One of the many reasons my dog is cooler than yours! She had her spleen removed today and the vet let me tattoo her while she was under.” Animal-rights activists quickly pounced. What say you, Gigglers: cool or cruel?

Can You Pay My Bills?

Some say parents just don’t understand. That’s why one New Jersey cheerleader hoping to attend the University of Vermont in the fall appears to be suing her parental units for the tuition money. She alleges the duo turned against her shortly after her 18th birthday, claiming they insisted she break up with her boyfriend or leave their home. Lucky for her, she moved in with her BFF, whose father happens to be an attorney and agreed to take on the case. He’s also footing the $12,000 bill for the legal fees, which probably could have covered part of the education cost but, you know, YOLO.

Can’t Read My Poker Face

A gambler recently filed suit against the Downtown Grand Las Vegas Hotel and Casino insisting the establishment took advantage of his overly intoxicated state. The California man lost $500,000 in the blink of an eye, but believes the hotel is responsible as casino employees allegedly served him cocktails until he blacked out. On the other hand, he does take *some* of the blame for how drunk he was, revealing he’d smuggled 10 drinks that were already inside of his body into the hotel. Now he insists his actions have nothing to do with being a sore loser. Hey, you gotta know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em.

Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me?

Remember that scene in Cruel Intentions where Sarah Michelle Gellar’s character Kathryn teaches Selma Blair’s Cecile how to french kiss? Well, now there’s an app for that — except it teaches one how to do so below deck a la Ryan Phillippe’s Sebastian. So, if you’re in need of a lesson of linguistic proportions, just direct your smartphone to www.lickthisapp.com and administer your very own oral exam. Especially since you know where it’s been, you’ll probably want to give your cell an antibacterial bath to start. Just sayin’.

And there you have this week in “WHAT?!” Can’t wait to see what’s in store for humanity next!
