'Mickey Mouse' And Other Costumed Characters Beat Motorist In Bizarre Road Rage Incident

This is either the world's most bizarre road rage incident or one of the craziest staged pranks you'll ever see.

The clip, caught on camera in Russia over the weekend, shows a motorist stopping a vehicle with which he's had some kind of problem. But as people dressed as Mickey Mouse, Spongebob Squarepants, Scrat from "Ice Age" and some kind of spotted creature jump out and start beating him, he was probably wishing he had just stayed home and watched cartoons.

Australia's 9News reports that the title of the video translates into "severe Chelyabinsk Disney,” implying that the incident took place in the Russian city of Chelyabinsk.

It should be noted, however, that while Mickey Mouse is a Disney character, neither Spongebob nor Scrat are.

We have no idea who's responsible for that spotted thing.

ANOTHER Plane Diverted Because Of A Seat Fight

The fight for airplane seat supremacy continues this week with a story from Florida about a plane that was forced to land after an unruly passenger made a fuss about a woman who was trying to recline her seat.

WPTV spoke with a passenger who said he was sitting next to the aforementioned seat recliner during the Monday night flight.

"This woman who was sitting next to me knitting actually tried reclining her seat back and the woman behind her started screaming and swearing and the flight attendant came over and that just exacerbated what was going on, and then she demanded that the flight land," Aaron Klipin said.

The flight was supposed to go from New York's LaGuardia Airport to Palm Beach International Airport but it had to be diverted to Jacksonville.

The Associated Press reports that the unruly passenger, identified as 32-year-old Amy Fine of Boca Raton, told authorities she was just emotional over the death of her two dogs.

No charges are expected to be filed against Fine.

This is the third flight to be diverted due to a seat fight on an airplane in the last few days.

Gawker's Hamilton Nolan has a helpful guide to help prevent these sorts of flareups from occurring.

Should Kink Be Considered A Sexual Orientation?

There's a different type of sex for everyone, including those who get off on pain and power play. But are those who enjoy the darker side of sex just like the rest of us, albeit with a kinkier edge, or do they deserve their very own sexual orientation?

Slate recently asked that very question, and HuffPost Live's Ricky Camilleri continued the conversation on Tuesday with a panel discussion about what defines kink and whether those who practice it have desires different enough to fall under an umbrella besides gay, straight, bisexual or transgender.
