Wednesday is here once again, we’re halfway through another week and so it is time, as usual, for our Weekly Dose Of WTF.  This week we’ve got five great videos to share with you that will surely make you raise an eyebrow and ask yourself, “WTF!?”  We’ve got a greedy foul ball stealer, a cicada eating lad, “Weird Al”, a hilarious NYC bike lane laws protest and an invention unlike any you’ve ever seen before.  So sit back, relax and prepare to be WTF-ified!

Greedy Broad Steals Foul Ball

This video is absolutely ridiculous.  A little girl catches a foul ball and a lady in the crowd steals it right out of the girl’s hands!  And then she high fives her friends!  WTF lady?!  That’s not your ball!

Lance and a Cicada

The description on this video says, “Tennessee is currently experiencing a mass invasion of cicadas…they are EVERYWHERE outside…Lance (age 3) has sort of taken the ‘If you can’t beat them, join them’ approach, trying to have fun with them!”  But how is he trying to have fun with them?  By putting them in his mouth, of course!  Um…seriously?!

“Weird Al” Yankovic – shopping trip

Here’s a hilarious video that “Weird Al” Yankovic posted back in April of 2010 that has had a random viral surge today.  Who the heck was responsible for arranging this store?

SWITL Picks Up Semi-Liquid Materials

Here’s something I bet you’ve never seen before—it’s a weird invention that lets you pick up semi-liquid materials, like ketchup and mayonnaise, and put them down in a different place without changing their shape at all.  I was sort of hypnotized by this thing when I first watched.  Where can I get one?

Bike Lanes

Finally, this is an amazing video that has gone viral over the last week or so, drawing in over 3 million views.  It features a biker that gets a ticket in NYC for not riding in the bike lane, even though it is sometimes to dangerous too ride in the bike lane.  He makes a video of himself riding in the dangerous bike lane to prove a point.  WTF, NYC? Why don’t you ticket the people that are blocking the bike lane instead of the bikers?
