Weekend Superlative: Who put the weirdest thing down their pants?
By CHELSEA HUANG
Last week, readers were nearly split over who made the most outrageous move -- the woman who allegedly lied about getting a third breast surgically implanted or the news reporter who dropped a bombshell on live TV.
Ultimately, Jasmine Tridevil's very unusual breast augmentation won with 52 percent of votes.
This week, two stories really stood out in the strange news cycle for their obvious similarity and sheer absurdity. You'll see what we mean ...
Read below and let us know -- who put the weirdest thing down their pants this week?
The worker who hid $1,200 worth of meat in his pants
A New York A & P supermarket employee was accused of leaving the store with $1,200 worth of meat hidden in his pants.
Gregory Rodriguez was charged with fourth-degree grand larceny. He was arraigned Tuesday night and sent to the Westchester County Jail.

The Canadian caught with 51 turtles in his pants
Kai Xu, a known Canadian reptile smuggler, was caught at the border with 51 live turtles stuffed down his sweatpants, recently unsealed court documents say.
Special agents responded to a tip by a courier company, where Xu later arrived to pick up a brown parcel marked "Live fish -- keep cool."
"Xu turned towards me as he looked around the parking lot," Kenneth Adams, a special agent with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, stated in an affidavit outlining the criminal complaint. "As he did so, Special Agent (James) Fuller noticed irregularly shaped bulges under Xu's sweatpants on both his legs."
Canadian authorities seized the turtles, which included North American varieties such as eastern box turtles, red-eared sliders and diamondback terrapins - some of which sell for $800 each - and turned them over to American officials.
