Fun News Friday: Couple finds out their baby's gender reveal via alligator; man fakes own death to avoid paying a bet

Welcome to Friday! Baseball started this week and it was super rainy in Athens. Check out some fun news to end your week with a laugh. 

Man uses alligator as part of gender reveal 

When Mike Kliebert and his girlfriend tried to think of a new way to announce the sex of their expected child at a gender reveal party, only one thing came to mind: alligators. Kliebert, the owner of Kliebert Turtle and Alligator Farm in Hammond, Louisiana, also goes by the name “T-Mike,” the Gator King, according to Huffington Post. As an experienced alligator wrangler, Kliebert wasn’t afraid at all when he threw a watermelon into the mouth of Sally the alligator and watched blue Jell-O explode from inside. 



“What better way to do it than having an alligator that is 61 years old that my grandfather hatched in 1957?” Kliebert told Huffington Post. 

Man loses bet, fakes death 

After India defeated Bangladesh in the Nidahas Trophy final, Adel Shikder faked his own death in order to avoid paying a bet of 150,000 taka (or $1,800), according to AFP. Shikder used a videographer and makeup artist to film the so-called murder and place red fruit on his body to imitate blood. He then called his own brother and told him where to find his body. He was arrested and apologized when put on camera. 

Owl as ring bearer, what could go wrong? 

Jeni Arrowsmith and Mark Wood wanted their wedding to be a little different, so they hired a barn owl to be the ring bearer for the special day. However, instead of the owl doing as instructed, he went rogue and flew straight at the Best Man, according to the Guardian



Arrowsmith said it was “absolutely hilarious.”
