Canadians! You Gotta Love 'em!
Nobody's quite sure how it began but people in Quebec's Gaspe region -- an area the size of South Carolina, with around 140,000 residents -- has taken to cutting their paper money in half and using the bills at half value. Many retailers are actually accepting the halved $20s, $10s, and $5s- at half the original value. Residents are calling the "new" local currency the "demi," which is French for "half." The Bank of Canada says that while the practice isn't outlawed, it is "inappropriate" to cut your money in half. Gaspe residents argue that use of the demi, which apparently began earlier this year, boosts the local economy by making sure cash stays in the area.

What the What?
Talk about a photo bomb! A Philadelphia couple was in the middle of taking their pre-wedding pictures when who should happen by but thousands of naked bicyclists! They were all participants in this year's Philly Naked Bike Ride who just happened to cruise through the wedding day photo shoot of Ross Cohen and Blair Delson. The couple, who got married Saturday evening, spent the afternoon before their wedding taking photos at romantic spots around the city. Their wedding photographer, JPG Photography studio owner Joseph Gidjunis, was snapping photos of them in Dilworth Plaza, next to City Hall, when they heard the buzz of about 3,000 bicycles approaching. Delson said, "We saw them and I sprinted in my heels and my wedding gown and decided to get in on the action." Cohen lifted Delson and twirled her around, and together they high-fived the nude cyclists, who serenaded them with cheers. Let's just say they'll have a wedding album unlike any other! (myway.com)
