25-year-old Christopher Atkins was arrested early Monday morning after burglarizing a Target store. Security footage showed Atkins forcing his way into the store, which tripped the alarm.

When questioned by police, Atkins claimed that he broke in to the store because he was "practicing entering and exiting buildings" as part of his ninja training. Apparently he was reading Naruto, which is a comic book series about a teenage ninja, and got inspired.

Atkins didn't steal anything but was still charged with first-degree robbery. []

You aren't supposed to TELL anyone that you're a ninja. For someone studying ninjas he sure doesn't know much about ninjas. Sheesh.

The unidentified 27-year-old was watching the Packers/Cowboys football game Sunday afternoon. The man and his wife had agreed to burn the losing team's jersey. Dallas ultimately lost, so the husband did the honorable thing and went outside to burn his Cowboys gear.

However, the guy was drunk...and he lit his jersey on fire WHILE HE WAS STILL WEARING IT.

The victim was taken to the hospital with second-and third-degree burns and skin was reportedly "hanging off his arm and back." [Sebastian Daily]
