There are lots of simple things you can do to get to work on time. This is not one of them.

A man in Washington was caught by state troopers using a cardboard cutout of the “Most Interesting Man in the World” from the Dos Equis ads as a passenger to fool authorities into letting him use the HOV lane.

Needless to say, it didn’t work, and he was fined.

Trooper Guy Gill Tweeted out the photo on Tuesday, giving the guy some props for trying.

“I don’t always violate the HOV lane law,” he wrote. “But when I do, I get a $124 ticket! We’ll give him an A for creativity!”

After being pulled over, the driver told the officer that the man was his “best friend.”

This might have been a big fail, but the real Dos Equis guy could have gotten away with it.

Meanwhile, in Florida… a bobcat was spotted at Sebastian Inlet State Park in Vero Beach dragging a shark along the sand.

And it’s got the Internet talking, because that is one badass bobcat.

What do you think this is Bobcat, Australia?

The photographer, John Bailey, says that the beast leapt into the water to grab it while it was busy eating another fish.

The cat then pulled it out of the ocean and onto the sand. He eventually dropped the shark and fled because it got scared (presumably from having his photo being taken), so he didn’t even get to enjoy his meal.

Commenters, of course, are questioning the validity of the photo, but experts say it’s actually a pretty normal occurrence.

“There is no reason to believe it’s fake,” said a rep from the Florida Wildlife Conservation Commission.

On the FWC Facebook page, the group says it’s most likely an adult Atlantic Sharpnose Shark.

Allegedly the girl hatched a revenge plot to murder her mother after her iPhone was taken away. That sentence is a real event and not something we pulled from a psychology case study on sociopathy.

Boulder County police arrested the tween after her mother reported her for the second poisoning incident. The first, when the child poured bleach into her mother's smoothie, which mom was able to detect by smell (and here we thought it was the pricepoint of a Vitamix that would kill you ZING).

Then she tried the same stunt with a carafe of water that her mother kept in her bedroom. This is probably the ballsiest move in the entire story, because seriously who tries the same matricidal nonsense twice? That's just poor form, Olivia (in the story I am assuming the child's name is Olivia because they're all named Olivia, run with me here).

To conclude, anothercase of tween barbarism solved by the power of a mom who won't take any nonsnse... and maybe a little help from Mr. Yuck.
