The Sideshow
  • In May 2007, the "Charlie bit my finger!" video went viral and has become one of the most viewed Internet videos ever, surpassing 488,000,000 clicks.

    Five years later, the two brothers in the video (now 6 and 8 years old) have been reunited on screen to discuss their humorous place in Web history.

    "Charlie bit my finger," the older brother says. "Yup," Charlie replies, in a matter-of-fact tone. "And I was screaming for help."

    "Instead of helping, my parents just kept filming," he continues.  "And, now the whole world has seen it."

    The video is part of a new advertising campaign by Ragu, during which the boys give a moment-to-moment recount of their experience. Though the brothers are both British, the video then cuts to a country-western song summarizing the viral video. But, hey, not to nitpick. After all, we are analyzing an Internet video about a toddler biting his sibling on the finger.

  • Maine police return stolen marijuana to man

    Thomas Davis, a licensed medical marijuana grower and caregiver, inspects his sole remaining plant after his crop was burglarized. (Mario Moretto/

    It's not every day that police hand you $12,800 worth of pot.

    But such was the case in Ellsworth, Maine, where local police officers returned the 17 stolen plants to licensed medical marijuana caregiver Thomas Davis, the Bangor Daily News reports.

    The plants were taken last week from a greenhouse near Davis' home.

    Police arrested and charged Aaron Pert, 32, of Trenton, Maine, with the burglary after he admitted to the crime after a car he was in was pulled over for allegedly running a stop sign. Pert eventually told police where the freshly harvested plants were stashed and police recovered the marijuana, according to the Daily News.

    Now it seemed Ellsworth police had a dilemma. They didn't know whether to destroy the pot, which they would normally do with illegal drugs, or return the pot to Davis.

    According to the newspaper, the police department was worried about violating federal law if officers returned the medical marijuana, which is legal under state law.
