Remember how many times you saw a headline and thought "there's just no way"? Though it isn’t likely that this year was any weirder than any years past, it seems like the world was feeling a little quirky in 2013. The stories have ranged from scientifically questionable to amazing, to what-the-f*** crazy, from “Why does that man have a nose growing on his forehead?” to “I’m sorry, she married what inanimate object, exactly?” all the way to “Dennis Rodman did WHAT?”

Take this time to remember, laugh, shake your head and mentally file away the weirdest news of 2013. With 2014 being an election year, we’ll have plenty to deal with without making some of these weird stories into headlines again.
