EPIC FAIL of the Day 4/4/12
1. After being spotted last night wandering naked around an Indiana neighborhood, a 19-year-old man explained to cops that he was sans clothes because it was “opposite day,” according to a police report.
After Leonard Fodera provided an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officer with that explanation (along with the claim that he “just wanted to be free”), the cop delivered his own “opposite day” retort.

2. A British man who bought a handful of sketches at a Las Vegas rummage sale for $4.76 said one of them turned out to be an Andy Warhol worth $2.06 million.

4. Remember when supermodel Gisele Bundchen made women everywhere seethe when she said many moms-to-be turn their bodies into “garbage disposals” and noted how easy it had been for her to lose weight after her pregnancy? Well, this is kind of like that, only weirder.
Samantha Brick, 41, a British freelance journalist who lives in France, is gaining notoriety for an essay she wrote for the Daily Mail. The headline? ‘There are downsides to looking this pretty’: Why women hate me for being beautiful.
It goes without saying that the essay’s premise — author faces hardships and unfair treatment from other women because she’s stunningly gorgeous — is asking for trouble. But … WOW. Samantha Brick created so much buzz that she practically broke the Internet. She became a trending topic on Twitter and generated thousands of comments from readers over what BuzzFeed described as “quite possibly the least relatable essay ever written.”

5. She was lovin’ it a little too much.
Manatee resident Christine Faith Baker, 47, was arrested after she allegedly offered sexual favors for two McDonald’s dollar-menu cheeseburgers, according to the Miami Herald.
An undercover officer invited Baker into his car on Friday and started talking about sex. Baker allegedly said that her fee was two McDoubles — the dollar-menu version of a double cheeseburger — costing a grand total of $2.75.
Of course, Baker was also allegedly looking for a tip of another $40 for her services, the Bradenton Herald reported.
The detective bought the burgers and drove to a vacant lot, where other agents arrested Baker on charges of prostitution. It’s yet unclear whether she was allowed to eat the delicious doubles before she was taken to jail.
Baker was released on Saturday.
