By Megan O'Neill 

Happy Wednesday ladies and gents!  It’s time for our Weekly Dose Of WTF and this week we’ve got some wild and crazy videos to share with you.  Today’s roundup includes a video of a giant Lego man that washed up on a beach last week, a shocking goldfish experiment, “twirl-a-squirrel”, an amazing snapping turtle and a hilarious falling prank.  So sit back, relax and prepare to be WTF-ified!

Giant Lego Man Washes Up On Siesta Key Beach

Residents and visitors at Siesta Key Beach got a surprise last week when a giant 8-foot Lego man washed up on shore with the words ‘No Real Then You Are’ written on its chest.  Turns out that the giant Lego man is the work of Ego Leonard, an artist from the Netherlands.  Similar Lego men were discovered in the Netherlands in 2007 and England in 2008.  I wonder how long it took this Lego man to arrive at his final destination in Siesta Key Beach.

Goldfish in Liquid Nitrogen

Here’s a crazy video of a goldfish being frozen in liquid nitrogen and then returned to a container of water where he instantly comes back to life and starts swimming around.  I’m sort of torn between finding this cruel and amazing.  What do you think?

Twirl a squirrel champ

Have you ever heard of a twirl-a-squirrel?  Apparently it’s a device used to keep squirrels and other animals off bird feeders, but this squirrel doesn’t seem to get the hint.  According to the video description, “He survived in good health and ran down the driveway in a straight line.”

Alligator snapping turtle eats watermelon

Holey smokes!  This turtle may look harmless but watch out!  He’s got the bite of an alligator!

Finally, these days it seems that pranksters will do anything to get a laugh on YouTube.  These guys walk around their local grocery store and fake falling down.  They aren’t very good at it, but it’s pretty funny.  It’s nice to see that pretty much everyone asks them if they are OK.  If you like pranks, check out our list of 10 Hilarious Prank Videos On YouTube.
