Luke Burbank, host of the podcast "Too Beautiful to Live," brings us his weekly wrap-up of the week’s awesome and not awesome news.

Police arrested a man in Spartanburg, South Carolina, for not having a valid driver's license. This was after police pulled him over because his truck displayed something "anatomically correct" on his back bumper. According to the deputy's report, “the object was a pair of large fleshy testicles.”

Note to our listeners, if your spouse is getting attacked by cheetahs, it's probably not a good idea to take that perfect vacation picture. A wife and husband were snapping photos in a South African cheetah petting zoo when the situation turned dicey quickly.
