1. Kanye West chats up Mr. Trump
The Oval Office is arguably one of the most important rooms in the world, a meeting place for presidents, political leaders and esteemed guests from around the world.

The Oval Office has seen more Hollywood celebrities of late, including West’s wife, Kim Kardashian.

2. Flintstone cosplay warrants arrest
In a brilliant and inspiring prank, a Florida man converted his Smart car into a replica of Fred Flinstone’s prehistoric vehicle, dressed up as Fred, and drove it around town.

He was later arrested when the officer deemed him to be acting in an unruly manner.
Strange thing to do, but not completely unhinged. Perhaps it was part of a mid-life crisis?
