One ruthlessly kills thousands of people and the other is nice place to relax in the sun.

In an interview last week with CNN, U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz. mistakenly referred to Boko Haram, the Islamist terrorist organization in Nigeria, as “Boca Raton,” the city in Florida.

They were discussing the issue of paying ransom to terrorists for kidnapping victims.

“Once you start doing that, then everybody, every American citizen traveling abroad becomes a subject in regard for kidnapping and then the plight of how much money has been captivated in the Boca Raton group,” Gosar said.

The mayor of the city in Florida, Susan Haynie, laughed at the mistake.

“While I’m pleased that the congressman from Arizona would have the name of Boca Raton on his lips, I am disappointed that he would confuse our vibrant, beautiful city with a movement promoting Islamist insurgency in Nigeria,” she said.

It was a simple slip of the tongue. Just don’t make the same one when planning your spring break this year.

Is this Marvel's newest superhero?

A man in China was arrested this past weekend for trying to smuggle in 94 iPhones from Hong Kong where they are cheaper to purchase.

Customs officials were suspicious of the way he was walking, so they had him go through the metal detectors.

That's when they discovered $49,000 worth of Apple products (both iPhone 6 and iPhone 5S models) taped to his midsection in this makeshift suit of armor.

Crotch Siri is now scarred for life.

From CBS Los Angeles:

A 35-year-old woman who tried to climb down the chimney of her estranged boyfriend's Woodcrest home early Saturday morning had to be rescued after getting stuck, according to the Riverside County Fire Department.

Homeowner Tony Hernandez said the woman, the mother of his three children, had tried around 5 a.m. to open the door of his home in the 15800 block of Rancho Viejo Drive. When she found it locked she climbed to the roof and attempted to get in through the chimney. That's when she became wedged inside the 12-by-12-inch chimney. She had apparently removed her clothes to aid her descent.
