The Sideshow
  • (Awesomphilia.com/Facebook)

    It must be true love: A man stuck an engagement ring into the bun of a chicken sandwich—and the woman accepted the proposal.

    It almost makes the much-maligned wedding-anniversary bowling ball look like a touching gesture—yet Ann, the bride-to-be, didn't seem to mind. In this photo of the sandwich and accompanying engagement ring posted to Facebook on Wednesday was the message, “I said yes :)”

    (Ann's last name, as well as that of her fiancé, Dennis, had been redacted from the page.)

    As of press time, the picture had 54 “likes” from Ann's Facebook friends—which leads us to believe there's a touching backstory to the sandwich proposal. Still, you'd think if someone was going to put a wedding ring inside a chicken sandwich, they'd at least go for Chick-Fil-A.

    What do you think—would you propose to someone using fast food as a prop? And would you accept a marriage proposal like this?

  • Police catch alleged burglar hiding in clothes dryer

    Police in New Rochelle, N.Y., caught a suspected burglar hiding in a clothes dryer, local ABC-affiliate WABC reports.

    Police responded to a burglar alarm at the home of Aaron and Gwen Stone. When they arrived they saw a man inside the home, so they called for backup, according to the station.

    The alleged burglar, 19-year-old Gabriel Perez-Majia, apparently saw that the home was surrounded. Lohud.com reports that he refused to surrender. Seeking a place to hide, he settled on the likely warm (if cramped) environs of the clothes dryer.

    Unfortunately for Perez-Majia, he left a trail of blood from a cut he suffered while allegedly breaking in through a window. That trail made it easy for police and a police dog named Tank to find him. A stash of jewelry was found near the dryer, according to Lohud.

    Aaron Stone spoke to WABC about the experience:

    "It's just unreal that you leave in the morning with your family to do your life and you come back and you have half a police squad in your house

  • A Chinese farmer received a five-day jail sentence after admitting to authorities that he made up a story about electrocuting an alien, reports the Telegraph.

    The man, identified as Li, told authorities he was inspired by the 2011 science fiction comedy "Paul" starring Simon Pegg and Seth Rogan as the voice of the titular alien. Li created his own alien out of rubber, wire, and bone glue and then photographed it, claiming that he had electrocuted the space creature, according to a report from Reuters.

    He posted a tall tale about the aliens and a UFO on a Chinese website.

    "I was setting an electric trap for rabbits by the Yellow river when I saw a bright light," Li wrote, according to the Telegraph. "Above my bike, a UFO was floating. One by one, five aliens came down, but one of them stumbled into one of my rabbit traps and was electrocuted. The others went back into their ship and flew away."

    The story and accompanying photos were a hit online and drew the attention of Chinese
