9. A deer broke into a York hotel, possibly looking for a room.

It’s not every day that absolutely insane events are captured on camera, but luckily security cameras caught this one on tape.

Inscrutable performances at open mics are normally reserved for ones that take place in dimly lit coffee shops or Brooklyn bars, but in December, a woman took her performance on the road to a city council meeting in Nebraska. Not only does she have some colorful language and great one-liners (“I have six butts, not six boobs”), but an arsenal of wonderful props, as well.
