We've all been there: You're in a rush to get home and there's no food in the house, so you stop for something quick. When Australian man Reiner Marco bought a KFC meal, he sat down to eat it about 30 minutes later. When he bit into one of the drumsticks, he was revolted to find maggots crawling around inside. He filmed the incident in all its disgusting glory. Marco told the Daily Mail he "just wanted to let the public know that this can happen and to look twice before eating food from a restaurant, not only from KFC."

10 Photos That Prove The Praying Mantis Is The Most Badass Insect On Earth

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTAT_ATF'); }); When it comes to the animal kingdom, the undisputed champion is the sloth (in my personal opinion, anyway). But what about when it comes to insects more specifically? I would like to nominate the praying mantis for the title of "Most Badass Bug."They might not seem like much at first glance, but they're scrappy and they fight creatures much bigger and stronger than they are (and often win). Just have a look at some of these photos and videos. I think they'll make you understand my logic. When a praying mantis sets its sights on you, you don't stand a chance...especially if they catch you off guard, like this poor lizard. Reddit /...

Veterinarian Removes Larva Found Crawling Around In A Kitten’s Head

When I was a kid, my mom had the displeasure of taking me to the doctor to remove a foreign object from my body. I was really curious about what would happen if I shoved a bead up my nose, so I did just that. When I couldn't get it out and started to panic, she took me straight to the emergency room for the not-so-fun task of pulling it out. Although it was extremely uncomfortable, I'm now forever grateful that I only had a bead stuck in my face after seeing this. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBP_ATF'); }); When Dr. Karri McCreary from Vet Ranch pulled a kitten named Speck and his siblings from an animal shelter, she was expecting to treat him for the ulcer in his eye.

Have you ever wondered why the burger you ordered looks so much less appetizing than it did in the photo on the menu? Well, that's probably because the photo on the menu wasn't actually a picture of a burger.

When it comes to 14th-century French nobility, there are few characters more illustrious (and more terrifying) than Gilles de Rais. Rais began his life as a darling of the French military, and he even fought alongside Joan of Arc during the Hundred Years' War. However, later in his life, it was revealed that Rais was always up to no good. Early in his life, Rais was considered among the finest of the French nobility.

He was eventually named Marshal of France and spent time fighting alongside Joan of Arc. It was after he retired from the military, h...
