Next up: An armed robbery turned into “a panicked attempt to escape” when the robbers got locked inside of the cell phone store they had attempted to raid.

The two New Jersey thieves locked in the store became irate when a crowd gathered in front of the store taking pictures and taunting the not-so-dynamic duo.

What happens when a beauty pageant contestant hasn’t paid much attention to the question and answer portion of a beauty contest? An epic fail. One contestant at the Miss Philippines USA pageant completely flubbed a question she probably should have prepped for.

The fumbling and stumbling began with, “If I had to pick one of the five senses it would be seeing … because seeing is the best sense that we can ever see …”

If asked why she answered the question in that matter, her response might begin with, “Well, you see, what had happened was …”
